I finally caved and purchased the much-hyped Plum All Day Wear Kohl, and I am so glad that I did! I can never step out of the house without some Kajal on my waterline, this is how I justified adding yet another pencil to my armament. It has now become my favorite kohl for the days when I need a long-wearing product.
It is the creamiest black formula that glides on the waterline without any pulling or dragging. I have extremely sensitive eyes and am always wary of trying a new formulation, but this one is a paraben-free, vegan formula which does not irritate my eyes at all. It is a rich black that is smudge proof and waterproof as well. I have fairly watery eyes and every kajal I use tends to collect near the corners after a few hours. With this product too I see a little bit of smudging around the tear ducts after 3-4 hours but a majority of the color stays intact and looks fresh even after 8 hours.
I am quite impressed with this product and find that it is a creamier version of my previous favorite, Colorbar’s Just Smoky Eye Pencil. The Colorbar one is more expensive and does tug at the waterline a little, so this one is a more affordable option although I love both the products.
I am wearing this kohl on my waterline in this picture, it is a potent black that provides a bold look in one swipe. The only issue I have with this product is that I need to sharpen it, and lazy me does not like that. However, these kinds of pencils have way more product than the retractable ones and do not break as easily too, so perhaps the small effort of sharpening these is a good exercise for my wrists. A 1.2 gm pencil is available for INR 425 which is a fair price for the quality. I am sure one pencil will last a long time because of the high concentration of color. I will definitely let you know how long it lasts for me!
