Review

Sugar Cosmetics continues following the tradition and the packaging is again a classic one enclosed in the printed carton box. This kohl, unlike the previous launches, is not in a retractable form thereby implying that we need to sharpen it to use it when the nib flattens (which happens in a couple of uses). The good part is, you get a complimentary sharpener along with this pencil so you need not bother before investing in it, and by the way , the sharpener is pretty good quality by which I mean, it peels off a very thin layer leading to lesser product wastage.

Now let me shower some love on this baby. Honestly, I have never come across any kohl that is as creamy and smooth as SUGAR Stroke of Genius Heavy Duty Kohl. It glides on like a dream. I love it for its buttery texture and bomb pigmentation. Yeah ! you heard it right. It is literally a kohl, so super black that you only need one swipe and when I say that, I mean it. I think the formula is a winner and it could be because it is wax base. Well that brings on a limitation too which is that it gets transferred onto my oily lids if I blink my eyes before this thing sets completely. It takes a minute or two to dry up and adhere to the skin to live up to its ‘smudge-proof’ claim however you are not supposed to mess up with it too much in order for it to stay in place. This kajal completely rocks on the waterline. It doesn’t budge a bit except for a little here and there and that too after 4-5 hours of weartime but that to me is an awesome performance. The best part is when I wear this, I feel like I have worn nothing in my eyes.. it is that comfortable.
I highly recommend checking this kohl out. It is the creamiest thing I have ever tried. I suggest you to put it in refrigerator before you sharpen it to avoid any sort of breakage. Also, if you have oily lids like myself, you need to be a little cautious when wearing it as an eyeliner – apply, let it set and then try the smudge test if you want laugh . Apart from that, there is hardly anything bad about it. It stays put on the waterline for a great amount of time and the pigmentation is just wow.

Try it girls !

Buy here.

    Was planning on buying the Sugar Twist and Shout liner. After reading this review I will definitely go ahead with it.

    SUGAR Stroke of Genius Heavy Duty Kohl.applies beautifully on the eyes, creamy, good pigmentation. Great recommendation, only let it set well on the eyes before closing the lids(: … good kajal and water line too, cool!!

  • Reply Philiphina December 23, 2016 at 1:58 pm

    One stroke highlights the eyes just like a dream, that’s so beautiful. Smooth stoke and then good color. 8 hrs is long lasting as well !! , have to be a little careful while applying this though that’s for sure.

  • Reply Diana December 28, 2016 at 3:28 pm

    Those eyes are so well highlighted with the sugar kolh … it seems to do a great job on the eyes for sure. Good it comes with a sharpener and a good one at that(: … its waterproof so that is nice as well.
