Revlon Photoready Kajal Emerald Empire Review, Swatches and EOTD

Hey Girls,

This is my first eye product review. No! maybe second but first with eye swatches and I’m certainly not excited about it as I couldn’t take one good eye swatch pic, don’t know why I’m so bad in clicking swatch pics! Though I love writing reviews but I’m not that great in clicking swatch pics, only time will teach me something.

Revlon Photoready Kajal Emerald Empire ReviewProduct Description:

Get multiple on-trend looks with one dual ended pencil. The dark end’s rich color gives you an intense, bold look. The light end brightens and opens up the eyes. Use both ends together for an on-trend, smoldering look.

Price: Rs.395

Shades Available: Black/White, Navy Blue/Silver and Emerald/N*de.Revlon Photoready Kajal Emerald Empire Review

My Take on Revlon Photoready Kajal Emerald Empire:

Packaging: It is a dual ended wooden pencil with two shades (n*de for brightening the eye and green for lining upper lid) though each shade can be used reversely too and the pencil has respective matching color caps at both the ends to identify the shades.

Shade: This pencil comes in two shades, both at each end. One shade is n*de and the other one is green. The green one looks very sharp in the eyes and makes the eyes appear sharp though it starts smudging in an hour only and the n*de shade is quite a flattering and a multipurpose shade, (the one for which you may want to buy it) it brightens the eyes, opens up the tired eyes and makes eyes appear bigger. Revlon Photoready Kajal Emerald Empire ReviewRevlon Photoready Kajal Emerald Empire Review

Pigmentation: Both the shades are well pigmented, the green one is like dark teal and is very well pigmented, gives the real green color on application and the n*de one too is nicely pigmented.

Texture: It has a very nice smooth texture, it glides on smoothly, with just one swipe and it’s so intense. Doesn’t look chalky on application.

Staying Power: Where this kajal lacks most is the staying power! It has the least staying power I have ever seen in a kajal, I mostly use green one from both the shades and it starts smudging in one hour and completely vanishes in 2 hours, now that’s very poor! It’s not expected from a kajal priced this high :( Whereas if I apply green shade on my upper eyelid, it fairly stays for 2 hours and starts smudging after that but the n*de one has nice staying power on the waterline probably like 2-3 hours which is still less but overall okay. The concept of this kajal is that nu*de on the waterline and the green one on the upper lid, this way both works fine as they stay on longer this way then if applied reversely.


Revlon Photoready Kajal Emerald Empire Swatches

Revlon Photoready Kajal Emerald Empire Swatches.jpgBad bad eye pics, I know! I know people I suck at eye swatch pics (I’ve got droopy eyelids), this was just to show you how this color looks in the eyes. I have used green on the upper lid and the n*de on the waterline.

Pros of Revlon Photoready Kajal Emerald Empire:

  • Comes with 2 shades.
  • Well pigmented.
  • Smooth texture, glides on smoothly.
  • N*de shade brightens up the eyes and is a multi-purpose shade.
  • Green looks stunning and would suit all skin tones, it makes the eyes appear sharp.

Cons of Revlon Photoready Kajal Emerald Empire:

  • A bit pricey.
  • Poor staying power, starts smudging in an hour.
  • Green shade smudges a lot and makes the under eye area all colorful (green) and also sets badly in fine lines.
  • Wastage during sharpening as it’s a wooden pencil.

BML Rating: 3/5

On the End Note:

You may want to buy it only for the n*de shade if you don’t like the effect of white eye pencil on your waterline or else you can give it a skip. Nothing epic about it! The n*de works good though and is a multi-purpose shade, can be used in various ways.
