Bobbi’s new dual-ended Smokey Eye Kajal Liner, a super-saturated, richly-pigmented kohl-like formula, effortlessly takes eyes from subtle to sultry in a single stroke.  This creamy color-true formula paired with the built-in smudger delivers intense definition and allows for versatility in application.  Whether your look is neatly blended and sophisticated for day or totally smudged and sexy for night, Smokey Eye Kajal Liner makes eyes stand out.  The result are super smokey, uber dramatic, smoking hot eyes.

Shades: Black Coffee, Noir, Pacific, Black Amethyst, Jade and Storm

I had shared Swatches of Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Kajal Liner and a tutorial on How to do smokey eye makeup by Bobbi Brown’s Cosmetic Artist Eliano Bou Assi  using it last month. I have been using Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Kajal Liner for over a month now and would be reviewing the same today.

Shade – Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Kajal Liner comes in 6 shades. I have got “Noir” which is a black kajal. This shade is perfect for creating smokey eyemakeup looks.

Texture & Formula – Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Kajal Liner has a soft formula but it holds its shape and doesn’t melt crazily while applying or storing. I use it both as a base and eyeliner for smokey eye looks and it works perfectly in both the cases. Formula is really smooth and applies easily without tugging or pulling. I use it both for waterline and lashline and it hasn’t irritated my eyes ever. I use the smudger (attached at one end of the pencil) to soften the look or blend the kajal and that smudger works really well.

Pigmentation – Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Kajal Liner Noir is very pigmented. One stroke deposits enough product and there is hardly any need to go over again to fix the eye-lining.

This is how Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Kajal Liner Noir looks on me after wearing for good 6 hours without an eyeshadow base. I have used Revlon Colorstay Shadowlinks in Plum on the top of it to create a soft daytime look.

Staying Power – Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Kajal Liner stays on for good 6-7 hours on me with formula fading a bit after 5+ hours. I haven’t seen it smudging on me, however one should be cautious and apply a good eye primer in case of oily lids. Brand doesn’t claim it to be a long lasting, smudgeproof product so I can’t judge or criticize this product on those grounds. However I can see the kajal wearing off my waterline after 3-4 hours.

Overall Thoughts

Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Kajal Liner is a perfect product for creating smokey eye makeup looks It works well both as a base or a kajal/ eye liner. Formula is soft smooth and pigmented. You get a fairly large size pencil at this price, which will last you quite a long time. Bobbi Brown has not claimed it to be long lasting, smudgeproof product, its a simple kajal, so I can’t really judge it on those grounds. Only downside is that Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Kajal Liner comes in a wooden pencil form that needs to be sharpened every now and then, and that results in product wastage.

Ratings : 4/5

For the above look I have applied Colorbar BB Cream, MAC Prolongwear Concealer, Ben Nye Banana Powder, MAC Mocha Blush and Revlon Grape Juice Lipstick.
