Kryolan Contour Pencil in Shade 971 Review, Swatch and EOTD

Hello friends,

Today I am going to review a contour pencil from kryolan. As the name suggests, it is not a kohl pencil or eyeliner. It is used for contouring the eyes and I personally prefer it to tight line my eyes or when I am looking for a smudged smokey eye look.

REVIEW

It is priced at Rs. 250/- and it comes in a general pencil form. Though many prefer twist-ups I personally like sharpenable ones especially when it comes to contouring.

Packing is pretty basic. Silver colored pencil with color coded end.

I got it in black and it works amazingly well. It is well pigmented, soft, creamy enough to withstand the smudging and evenly smokes out.

It is not water-proof or smudge-proof. So though it lines wonderfully, you may not want to use it as a conventional kohl or eyeliner.

It also works wonderfully as a base for dark eyeshadows too.

What I like in Kryolan Contour pencil:
  1. Nice creamy texture.
  2. Works wonderfully for tight lining.
  3. Decent pigmentation even when smudged.
  4. Love it as a base for my matte black eyeshadow
  5. Affordable.
  6. Sharpen-able pencil form.
  7. Does not irritate my eyes

What I hate in Kryolan contour pencil:
  1. Not smudge-proof or water proof.
  2. Average staying power when used as a kohl.

4/5

On my eyes: (I have used only the Kryolan Contour pencil and smudged it with a pencil brush. I also used Max Factor mascara)

This product is not a necessity or must have. But if you are looking for a nice pencil to tight line your eyes or for everyday smokey looks do check it out.
