Hourglass Film Noir Eye Kohl

Hourglass has possibly  the most elegant makeup packaging around. Each of their products, no matter how basic , still looks totally chic.

Case in point is their new Film Noir Eye Kohl. This is the first eye pencil I've seen that has a pointed end that looks like an artist's brush. It's also very long. You feel like a makeup artist when you hold it. And the length , as it does  makeup brushes, makes it easier to use.

Hourglass has made this to be used on the inner eye rim , bottom line as well as eyeline . It's not too creamy nor too hard. It glides over the eye easily and can be blended. The pigment is very deep and the shade I have ,Espresso, is a very dark brown. It comes also in  Eclipse- Black.

Another neat feature - there are 2 caps. One has a built in sharpener.

Hourglass Film Noir Eye Kohl is $28  now at Sephora ,  with wider distribution  in January at luxury department stores.
