Product description :
Eye makeup can be tricky but a stroke of genius can put you at ease. Add to that intense colour and soft creamy texture and you know you’ve been hooked for life. We’re on about SUGAR Stroke of Genius Heavy-Duty Kohl – 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. Not just that, it comes with a free sharpener to ensure your eye makeup is always on point.
My Thoughts about Sugar Stroke of Genius Heavy duty Kohl Light Green
It comes in a jet black kohl with green color band at the end and black cap.It is sharp enable and comes with a sharpener.The outer cover is a cardboard with standard Sugar Cosmetics logo and graphic.It is made in Italy.The packaging is slim and chic.It looks classy yet simple at the same time.
The kohl is light green in color with a satin finish.The pencil is smooth and glides easily it is creamy and rich.It is so pigmented that only one swipe is enough to cover the eyes.
It is easy to smudge the kohl as well.The sharpener provided with it very good quality and does the job perfectly.It does not irritate my eyes and was comfortable to wear for long hours also.I have easily worn this for 6 hours and it stayed on my waterline for long time but it kinda faded on my upper lid.The thing I do not like about this liner is that it can easily smudge with the touch of your hands or something.If you will not touch it will not budge or move but if you are habitual of touching your eyes it can get really messy.Another drawback is that it is not a twist up packaging.Twist up pencils are more convenient and no product is wasted during sharpening.
It can be used a base for green eye looks or can be used as lower lash liner for special occasions.It subtle sheen brighten up the eye and makes it appropriate for special occasions or festivals.The formula is very high quality and feels buttery which I love.I think the formula is amazing for the price point.
I think it is good product but Maybelline Gel liners are more long wearing but if you love the shade you can go for this .You will not be disappoint.

My thoughts on Nykaa Glamoreyes liquid eyeliner Enchanting forest
It comes in green coloured matte plastic bottle with a long black cap.The packaging is neither luxe nor cheap ,it is average.It comes in a red colour outer cardboard with the brand name and details written on the box.The shade name is mentioned at the bottom of the bottle.The packaging is light weight and travel friendly.The brush of the eyeliner is very fine hence it is easy to make fine line with it.I am very bad at liquid eyeliners but I managed to draw a thin line,hence suitable for beginners also.The cap of the liner is very long so it is very convenient to hold and draw line or wing.The shade enchanting forest is a beautiful green colour.The liner dries to a glossy finish and after it dries down it is smudge prove and long lasting.The liner dries after a couple of minutes.The shade enchanting forest is pigmented but two coats are needed to build and intensify the colour.I find the formula comfortable and does not irritate my eyes.The colour showed up on my medium skin beautifully but I heard some blogger with darker skin tones that the colour becomes too dark on their skin almost black after drying.Nykaa Glamoreyes liquid liners have a great staying power of around 8 hours but I find that it is very easy to remove with water.I tried to wipe it off with baby oil but it does not come off easily .I find it is very convenient to remove the liner .
Overall ,I find it is a great affordable option for beginners and students who do not want to splurge on makeup.It is a fun way to beautify eyes for daily basis.The liner is pigmented,staying power is great and shades are stunning.I am very happy with my purchase .I am happy that any Indian brand comes up with amazing coloured liquid liners.Will recommend if you love coloured liners.
Here is a quick eye swatch .I applied no makeup or base on my eyelids
