Estee Lauder Artists eye pencil kohl liner review





I saw this initially on Marie Claire's UK magazine when I decided to ask my dad to buy me this from France when he was on a business trip. 
I won't deny it, just like every girl, I have many black eye pencils and this was just added on to the collection. Ok, now I am not boasting here, I am just only stating a fact that I cannot still find the darkest shade of black in Kohl liners, yet. As an attempt to find a dark one, and as the name suggests, this is just a soft black and not something that is very bold or dark. Which I didn't realize until I got it.
The Estee Lauder eye pencil comes in a sleek dark blue packaging with a gold lid. This eye pencil usually comes with a smudge brush, in dual ended, one side is the liner and the other side is just a generic blending sponge tip. From the name I thought I can smudge this one and use for a smokey eye look but no, it is just the name of the shade and nothing to do with the effect. This eye pencil is completely smudge proof but on applying a thick line gives a smudged effect. I feel this makes the work simpler and easier. 

I use it on my upper lash line, lower lash line and also my water line. If you want a light black color on your eyes then this is the one for you. Nothing too harsh (since not all of us suits them a black color in the waterline).
Swatch: from the left, one swipe swatch. On the Right, two swipes

Pros

• Does not smudge at all.
• Easily glides on the eyes.
• Comes with a sponge brush.
• Soft black shade for those who only uses brown kohls

Cons

• Just 3 shades to choose from.
• Very expensive (14 GBP!).
• Not very pigmented
Would I Repurchase? Though it is a good eye pencil, though this one is not for me. Plus the price!
