I've had my eyes on this for years, finally bought one. I used to put Hashmi surma (Golden plastic bottle one) back in college and that was good and inexpensive. Compared to that, this obviously cost a ? , but the pros are that the quality is better. Hashmi surma was rich Black pigment and this one is Black pigment with shimmer particles. No, it doesn't irritate the eyes. The applicator stick is also slick. I usually apply the Eastern way (one long glide along the water line). I'd say if you're new to surma or powdered Kohl, try an expensive one first cuz if you don't like the application, it'll be a big waste of money. Also, surmas smudge around the eyes giving it a natural kohl-washed look, that is the beauty of it.
THANK YOU NYKAA?... have been looking for this in India i have to wait to travel to UK to pick it up....the kohl has gorgeous shimmer sparkle with black and best part it dosent harm the eyes. Have used this kohl before and its EXEMPLARY!! PLEAZZZZ get the blue kolh and Guerlain Kajal as well... THANK YOU AGAIN...
Very nice kohl.Easy to apply. Happy with my purchase
It has too much of glittery particles and very uncomfortable to wear in waterline !
