In Detail SUGAR Stroke Of Genius Heavy Duty Kohl 01 Back To Black Review, Swatches and My Experience

The Sugar heavy duty kohl back to black comes in a classic pencil style packaging. They provide a sharpener with every pencil so that there is no need of fumbling with various other sharpening devices. Very basic and classy packaging with a matte finish pencil cap. The outer carton box has a very cool graphic design of a lady’s face. It has all the necessary details about the product including the complete ingredient list. So I guess they pretty much did an amazing job as far as the packaging is concerned.

Back to black has the most – creamiest texture that I have ever seen in a Kajal or Kohl. It glides on literally like butter. I mean honestly, I want to throw away some of my liquid eyeliners and replace them with Sugar heavy duty kohl. The formula is totally bomb dot com. Its soft and velvety, makes me want to grab it every time I am doing my makeup. The best part is, this eyeliner is jet black in colour. It gives complete opaqueness in a single stroke. I love doing my upper eye lid margin with this. It applies so smoothly that I do not have to go over repeatedly to get the perfect finish. Its perfection in a single stroke!

I have heard some ladies talk about how this is not completely waterproof and smudge proof. I however beg to differ here. Upon application, this kohl takes around 1-2 minutes to set completely. After that it becomes totally waterproof and does not smudge unless of course one rubs it hard. So the idea is, if you test it before it sets, it obviously won’t give the expected results. I found this Kajal to stay on my water line for a very long time. After around 6 hours, I noticed slight fading from the corners. Otherwise it pretty much lived upto its 8 hours claim.

You can see in the pictures below how beautifully it shows up in photographs. For creating my wing (only) I did use a liquid liner because the tip of this eye liner doesn’t stay sharp enough for a pointed wing.
