Napoleon Perdis Eye Pencil vs Lancome Kohl Eye Crayon

So, I said a longggg time ago, I would review the Lacome Paris Rose Edition Complete Make up Palette. I thought I would review each product separately, rather than in one long post, particularly because it has been a long time since the release of this palette. So, it's probably good to review these items separately so you would know my thoughts of individual products which you could try/purchase as this palette as a whole is no longer available. Firstly I'm going to talk about Kohl eye pencil.

When I first started using eye liners, I used pencils and crayons. Water liner was too scary. But once I got the hang of it, I switched between the two of them and then, pencils were pretty much banished. Or, when I literally ran out of times in the mornings, I'd run into the supermarket before work/uni and buy a eyeliner (as that would be the only thing that was open), swear to myself I'd get a proper make up bag in my bag, and quickly put on eyeliner with the pencil liner. But otherwise, my go to's were liquid and gel liners. One of the reasons that it has taken me so long to do a review for the palette is using up everything!

The Kohl Eye Crayon in Black, being one of the barely used items as pencils just wasn't something I regularly used. It is quite easy to glide on and staying power is alight, BUT it does smudge very easily. I did find, a bit might come off near my eye and need to be wiped away, which then causes a nice smudge on my face.

So I saw this boxed item sticking out of my make up box - I impulse purchased it when the gel liner was completely sold out a while ago and never really got around to using it. I tried it and felt what the hell, it seems really good so why not?

So when I saw this sticking out today, I thought I'd try it out and compare it to the Lancome crayon. I thought it glided on easier with similar staying power. I don't think this smudges as easily or as much, as the Lancome either. So if I was to go back and use eye pencils, I think it'd be Napoleon Perdis. I do think I might continue to use this for my waterlines in the future now that I've just rediscovered it, but the smudginess of the Lancome Kohl crayon wasn't as attractive.

Have you tried either one of these? What are your thoughts?
