Product Review: Lise Watier Bleu Bold Smokey Kohl Liner

Reviewer: Cinnamon Kitten

Brand: Lise Watier
Name: : Bleu Bold Smokey Kohl Liner
Size: 3 g / 0.11 oz
Price: $18 CAD

Shade Tried: Blue

From the press kit: "With its practical pencil format and creamy texture (easy to blend with a fingertip!), even inexperienced users will be able to achieve the perfect smoky eye. Formulated with a specialty wax (which procures a rich, opaque finish with the very first application), light oils and vivid pigments, the Smokey Kohl Liner glides on softly for a full, deep line. Long lasting and comfortable, it offers an intense matte finish, without smudging or dripping."

I'm a huge fan of Lise Watier products and have rarely used any of their products that I haven't been at least a little impressed with. When I first opened this liner, I was very surprised by the shape and size...and right away I knew that this would be a disappointing product. Can you guess why?

To Purr About:
- intense colour that's very intense and rich
- smooth, creamy liner glides on easily and doesn't tug eyelid at all
- a very light application leaves a deep, intense colour

Claws Out:
- the shape of this liner is difficult to keep sharp

Final Comments:
The formula of the liner is like many other Lise Watier eyeliners - rich, creamy and intense. As with their other liners, it glides on smoothly and easily and doesn't pull the eyelid at all.

But my biggest complaint about this product is the shape. Because it's quite thick at the bottom - (think the base of a lipstick) that after a few uses, the tip gets quite dull and after awhile, it's difficult to keep sharp. As you can see, once you get past a certain point, it will be impossible to sharpen and is basically a waste of product. Not the best design as most of the product will have to be tossed.

Considering this product costs $18 CAD, it's seems a lot of money for a product you can only use part of.

Looks like a really cool product - but too bad about the sharpening thing.
