When I catch onto a fad, I don’t do things by halves. After seeing the great reviews of Guerlain Loose Kohls, I purchased a few colours:
We have Noir – Black
Brun – er, Brown, quite a warm toned one
Bleu – Blue, almost a aqua teal shade.
Limited Shades –
Oriental Bronze – A cool greeny khaki, verrrryy purdy.
Oriental Metal – Another coolish taupey colour.
The swatch doesn’t show the glittery, shimmery quality of the colours.
The jar is cute (and you only get 1g of the product!!! 1g!), and the applicator is like a stick. How do you use it? you need to use the end of the stick to dot the colour around your eyes.
The Eastern Way – Place the applicator at the inside corner of the eyes and with the eye closed, glide the applicator across the lower eyelid (so with your eye closed pull the stick across, obviously be careful!).
The Western Way – Apply as a fine line around the eye, for a precise line.
The Western method, methinks, will take a lot longer but look sharper. The Eastern way is a bit more dangerous but leave you with a smudgy, sexy bond girl effect and its much quicker of course. Just don’t do it in the car, and beware of dropping too much product on the side – it probably costs more than cocaine.
BTW the lasting power is great and even though I definately got some product in my eyes it didn’t irritate (whereas Pigments will) so I guess thats why this product is so expensive.
But I like it! It adds a bit of faux class, a bit like a perma tanned blonde in a juicy couture tracksuit who has to get the bus home.
