The SUGAR Stroke of Genius Heavy-Duty Kohl is currently available in the 5 shades; Back to Black, Purple Rain, Green Light, Blue Suede Shoes, Black Magic. Out of these I have two shades i.e Back to Black & Blue Suede Shoes. I have already reviewed Back to Black on my blog, click Here to read complete review. In this post I will be reviewing Blue Suede Shoes. As per brand it is a waterproof Kohl pencil that can add pretty to your eyes in a single swipe. Its wax-based formula spreads evenly and lasts for up to 8 hours. Let see what I have to say about the same.

Online availability: Here
Direction of use: Gently rim your lower and upper lash lines with this creamy Kohl. Open your eyes wide for precise application.
Packaging: This khol comes in a matte black sharp-enable pencil which also has a black cap. An outer paperboard carton is also there which has a beautiful abstract art. All the required details are provided on the carton along with the complete ingredient list (Most of the time ingredient list is missing in case of khol). As it is a sharpen-able pencil so brand provides a sharpener with every pencil.
My opinion about the product: This khol is amazingly pigmented and has a wax based formula. It has a very creamy texture which makes its application super easy & it glides smoothly without any effort. As I am in habit of using kohl as a eyeliner too, so I apply it on my upper lash line as well as on my lash line. This khol settles down beautifully leaving behind a velvety matte finish. It is a jet black khol. It is a perfect rich cobalt blue shade which will compliment all skin tones. Only one stroke is required to get the super-intense finish.
The staying power of this khol is pretty impressive & it stays around 7-8 hours. So a thumb up to this khol as it does complete justice to its 8 hours claim. But it doesn’t do justice to its claim of being waterproof and smudge-proof. I don’t know why but a lot of time I forget that I have applied kajal in my eyes & rub them. Please tell me that I am not the only one on this planet who has this silly habit .
Overall I am pretty much impressed with this khol & using it on regular basis. No doubt this product price on higher side but if you don’t mind to invest in a good quality product then this product is for you. I also have a blue color kajal of this brand which I usually wear when I wearing something blue. So soon will be reviewing that too on my blog.
