LOVED FOR: Kohl has never been more pigmented
USERS SAID: "It's the perfect eye pencil - not too black, not too brown, soft enough where you can smudge it and create a very smokey eye, but hard enough that you can achieve a sharp line with it. I love it the fact that it's not stark black, so it looks great with my hazel eyes."
