Review: Oriflame Smooth Definer Eye Pencil in Black

Hello ladies! Today I am gonna review Oriflame smooth Definer for you.

oriflame-eye-definer

Basically it’s a kohl pencil that can also be used as an eye liner. Now, I am very fond of kohls, so I bought this one on a friend’s suggestion, and since then I’ve used only Oriflame smooth Definer for my eyes. I’ve tried Lakme Eyeconic eye pencil, Maybelline eye pencil, but so far, I’ve got the best result with my Oriflame smooth Definer.

My Experience with Oriflame Smooth Definer:

Packaging

It comes in a sleek retractable pencil. The outer cover is a glittery deep purple with a central band that tells the color of the pencil. It’s a tad smaller than other pencils I’ve used, so it’s really handy to carry. It has got the twist up mechanism, so you don’t need to worry about sharpening and wastage. You can use this one to the very end of it. The cap shuts with a snap and is tight enough.

Color

It’s a deep black. I’d say I find this one blacker than the blacks of other brands. One glide gives you a good black, but I prefer making it a little intense with another coat.

It gives a nice deep black in one glide itself

Texture

It’s got a smooth easy gliding formula. The kohl is strong and won’t break easily. It wouldn’t tug or break in between line. Just one glide would give you a nice black finish.

Stay

It stays intact for at least 6 to 8 hours. It’s waterproof, so you can wear it on rainy days without worrying about anything. I wouldn’t say it is smudge proof, but it would smudge only if you rub it too hard or if there’s a lot of oil on your face. Frankly, I’ve never had any staying issues with this one.

Kept the hand under running water for about 5 minutes

Still no smudging or washing off. The kajal stays intact in rains also.

What I Like about It

  • Smooth finish
  • Deep black
  • Many shades available, and each one has its own charm
  • Long lasting
  • Retractable pen
  • No hassle of sharpening
  • Good quantity. One stick easily lasts for more than a month, even if you use it regularly.
  • Multipurpose: can be used as kohl, as well as eye liner.

What I Don’t Like about It

  • Oriflame products are not easily available. You need to contact someone who deals in the brand, and order from the catalogue
  • A little expensive, comparatively
  • It contains silicon
  • Might sting eyes for those who have sensitive eyes.

VFM

It definitely is a little overpriced, if you compare it with other kohls available in the market, but I feel it’s worth it. Oriflame offers certain discount every month, so you must keep an eye on that. I once bought the Smooth Definer for Rs. 180 only. Cool deal! Ain’t it?

Am I gonna repurchase it?

Yes! I have been, and I will.
