A stunted start to the blog week but I'm back after a mini-break (no, nothing exciting other than a round of extensive spring cleaning.) I was feeling a little bleck yesterday, but my spirits are revived and I'm ready to chat liner. I've long said life it too short for bad eyeliner, and I'm inclined to think Marcelle agrees. They've recently added new shades to one of their ranges and added a whole new one to love too. Interested? Read on!

New to the Kohl Eyeliner family are six additional shades. The Kohl liners offer a long lasting, waterproof hold that happens to be the only liner recognized by the Canadian Dermatology Association thanks to the natural antioxidants and inner rim safe formula.

The Kohl liners offer pretty opaque coverage, but do have a stiffer feel when first applied. They do warm on skin, but some shades don't glide as smoothly as I would have hoped for. I do love the two nude/brightening additions though as they are great for in the waterline for a more awake effect.The new shade additions include:
  • Mother of Pearl: soft pink pearl frost
  • Brightening Beige: warm beige-nude matte
  • Copper Coin: deep copper metallic
  • Chocolate: deep brown matte
  • Classic Navy: medium blue satin
  • Black Plum: deep plum matte


The all new Velvet Gel Waterproof Eyeliner is the liner of your dreams (at a drugstore price!) The intensely pigmented liners have a smooth and creamy formula that glides on with absolutely no effort required. The formula can be smudged out, but does set to a long-lasting waterproof lasts all day without fading, smudging or flaking and holds well in the waterline/tightline.

The range currently includes your classic/basic liner shades, but I am hoping a few more colourful options make their way into the range soon. Current shades include:
  • Intense Grey: deep grey matte
  • Dark Chocolate: deep brown matte
  • Deep Navy: medium blue satin
  • Twilight Purple: deep purple
  • Jet Black: true black matte

Overall, some excellent liner options from Marcelle! I've long been a fan of their eyeliners, but the Velvet Gel are especially great and worth the space in any makeup bag. What do you think? Need any new liners in your life?
