A kohl pencil that has all the intensity and colour power of ultra-soft carbon. Specially formulated to provide deep, fully opaque coverage, provides an intense, smoked finish with duo-chrome pearl. Versatile in application: blend or smudge.
This review is for two (2) of the Kohl Power eye pencil shades releasing with MAC’s Holiday Glamour Daze Collection. This post includes photographs and swatches of the following colors:
- Orpheus: Intense black with gold pearl (Repromote)
- Mystery: Intense black with green pearl (Repromote)
Like all MAC Kohl Power Eye Pencils, these come in wood-pencil form without sharpeners.
Orpheus is a black shade with gold pearl. Mystery is a dark, shimmering, forest green. Both have good color without being completely opaque.
This formula isn’t the softest or creamiest, but the pencils glide over the skin without too much tugging. They also wear well through the day without smudging. The pencils are water-resistant and don’t fade until you remove them with makeup remover.
Ease of Use: 8.75/10
The pencils could be softer, and while they won’t skip, you will feel slight tugging on the skin during application.
You pay $1.50 more for these even though you get the same amount of product you would normally.
