Sugar Stroke of Genius Heavy-Duty Kohl in shade 01 back to black: Review and Swatch

by - January 20, 2017

Hello Everyone,
Today I am back with another review of my current favorite Sugar Stroke of Genius Heavy-Duty Kohl in shade back to black. One stroke of a kajal can change the whole game, it brings depth and definition to the eyes. I think eyes are the most beautiful yet sensitive parts of our body, so we have to treat it with right products. Though I don’t have sensitive eyes but I face some fungal problems around my eye lid area some times. So recently I brought this kohl of a sell, got it around 200/- off (yay!). So let’s start with the review.

My review on Sugar Stroke of Genius Heavy-Duty Kohl in shade 01 back to black:

Packaging: The kohl comes in full matte black pencil form which looks classy yet trendy. The brand name and logo is printed on one side and the shade name” back to black” is written on other side. The pencil further comes in a paper cardboard box which has a cool graphic print on it. Full ingredient list, price, shade are mentioned on that paper box. The Sugar Stroke of Genius Heavy Duty Kohl comes with its own sharpener for free.

Color: Blackest black.
Pigmentation and formula: Incredibly pigmented, just one stroke and you are done. Formula is super creamy and soft, glides evenly like a dream. It applies so smoothly that you can draw a perfect line in just a single stroke. It is more like gel based kohl in pencil form.The formula needs some time to set, after that it does not smudge or budge, smear or fleck if not rubbed. How cool is that! If you want to smoke out your liner then you have to apply and smudge it immediately with your fingertips, if it is set, it doesn’t move at all. But I  have heard many blogger was complaining that it is not completely smudged proof or water- proof. So I think if you have watery eyes or oily eye lids or rub it hard, then it will definitely  smudged and blurred. But you can fix this by setting the liner with matte black eye shadow post application.

Color payoff: Sugar Stroke of Genius Heavy –Duty Kohl is rich in color, gives the blackest black finish in one swipe. It has an amazing color payoff. It has gel eyeliner like consistency which gives the smoothest and even finish right from the first swipe.

Staying power: It lasts on my eye for whole day without smudge or budge. It was on creamier side when apply and need some time to set. After getting set, it doesn’t move, chip, fleck and ever smear. It is truly a long lasting one. It can be removed only by a makeup remover.
