      Advantages

      • Cheap
      • "Dark lines"
      • "Goes on easily"

      Disadvantages

      • "Smudges easily"
      • "Runs quickly"

      I want my makeup to stay where I put it!!

      I used to sware by Rimmel eyeliner. It was the first eyeliner I ever started using as a teenager and at first I really loved it but as I tried different brands, I learned that it wasn't really as good as I first thought.

      It does go on really easily which I like and with a dark line so you don't have to apply lots of layers to get the desired look. The lines go on really cleanly and it means there's a lot less room for error with the many layers you might have to put on with other brands.

      It also comes in a really good range of colours. I usually went for black as I have dark eyes but did experiment with some other colours too and the lines go on just as cleanly and smoothly.

      Now a couple of the downsides. It runs really easily!! I find that in as little as an hour or so, the liner isn't where I actually put it to begin with and I have developed a lovely panda eye look! As a teen this look is more accepted but as an adult, it's less accepted and we demand a little more longevity from our makeup!

      Because you're reapplying it so much, you're sharpening the pencil quite a lot too which not only means that it runs out more quickly but also that you can get those horrible stray pieces of wood that you can catch your eye with! (Ouch!) unfortunately that also means more mess. No matter how hard you try and be careful, the stray bits of wood that you've sharpened off the pencil always seem to get everywhere. Especially when that everywhere is white!

      Because it isn't waterproof it amudges really easily too when you're applying it so if you accidentally touch somewhere you've already applied it, you rub it out of place very easily, which means more reapplying! That can be really annoying when you're rushing to work.

      On the other hand the price is brilliant, it's usually only £3 or so and can usually be found in some kind of 3 for 2 offer which makes it even more value for money. However I would advise people not to be tempted by the price and to invest in something that is of better quality!

      • "brings our your eyes "

      • "very soft application"

      My number one go to for tired eyes

      This is such a great product. I use it everyday and this rounds up the goth chic look that I try to pull off. however, I do use this when out and about wearing a casual look and this makes my eyes look stunning.
      I apply it to my waterline, and the smudge brush which comes along with it softens the look if you're not going for a vibrant effect.

      All in all, this a great buy although a bit pricey as the product can either break or get used quickly.

      Advantages

      • Price

      Disadvantages

      • "Not dark enough"
      • "Smudges to easily"
      • Longevity

      Would have expected more from Rimmel

      Price and Availability

      Rimmel is one of the biggest make up brands and is widely available in department stores and supermarkets. The RRP for their Soft Kohl Eye Pencil is £2.99 and most stores are advertising at this price point at the moment but you can get them on eBay for £2.99 Buy one get one Free with free P&P so basically half price which is awesome.
      Packaging

      This is an eyeliner so you wouldn't expect anything to fancy in regards to packaging, this looks like your standard pencil, it is average length and has a hard black plastic lid. The Pencil itself is black with silver writing.
      In Use

      They eyeliner goes on smoothly with very little drag. The shade is called jet black but it is anything but jet black, it requires at least two or three coats to achieve a dark enough look. I don't like having to go over it as it starts to irritate my eyes if I take to long putting eyeliner on.
      The liner can be smudged easily to create a nice smokey look but I do find that it sometimes smudges when and where you don't want it to giving you panda eyes.
      The longevity is OK it lasts a few hours if you're having reasonably easy going day. If you're running round getting in the slightest bit hot or it is summer then it doesn't last long at all and seems to slide don your eyes which is not good at all.
      Overall

      Overall this eyeliner is OK but that is all I can say for it really it's not so bad that I would chuck it out, I will keep it for when I have ran out or can't find a better one but I won't be buying it again unless I was super skint and got some of eBay for cheap.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      This product works well but depends on what look you want to achieve. Overall good value for money.

      The Rimmel Soft Khol Kajal Eye Liner is a good pencil which blends easily to create a soft smokey effect. If you're looking for darker line under your eyes, you may find that you have to keep reapplying it. However it gives a long lasting finish and would look good on the eye lids.

      The pencil is good value for money and works better than some that I've used. Overall I found it very easy to apply and very blend-able. It was very soft on my eyes to apply and it didn't irritate my sensitive skin. However it doesn't work as well as some products I've seen on the market for a similar price. It does depend on what sort of look you want to achieve. For a blendable smokey eye look, this is good value and I would recommend it. But if you are looking with a dark line to wear under your eyes, other products are better.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A great easy to apply eye liner

      I recently had some vouchers to spend on the feelunique.com website so decided to treat myself to to a new eye liner pencil. I have used Rimmel eye products before so decided to purchase their soft kohl kajal eye liner pencil which was priced at £2.99 with free delivery.

      The product/packaging and use.
      The product comes in the form of a black pencil with silver writing on it and a black plastic lid that slides over the end (just like a pen)Along the front in large letters it tells you that it is a soft kohl kajal eye liner pencil. At the bottom of the pencil it has the Rimmel logo clearly displayed and it tells you that the colour is jet black (061) On the back it gives you the net weight (1.2g) the shelf life (30m) and some basic brand contact information. To use simply remove the lid and gently apply along the inner and/or outer eye lid until the desired look is achieved.

      Price and availability.
      The product is widely available in beauty stores, supermarkets, chemists and on line. It usually retails around the £2.99 mark but it is currently available at £1.99 with free delivery from the website www.cheapsmells.com.

      My experience and verdict.
      I am happy with this product. It glides on my eye lids really easy and it is nice and soft. It is also long lasting which means I don't have to keep re applying it throughout the day. I would definitely recommend this product.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      My favourite eye liner for the past 5 years!

      I have been using Rimmel London's Soft Kohl Eye Liner for about 5 years now. I swear by this eye liner!

      When I was in high school, the only types of make-up that we were allowed to wear was, for some reason, light eye liner (pencil, not liquid!) and mascara. Like most 14-year-olds, I wanted to blend in with my friends, my peers, and the 'popular' girls (funny how times change, eh!).

      I tried a couple of eye liners that were within my price range - I'm taking about 99p ones from Lidl or somewhere! Naturally, these cheap eye liners irritated my eyes and made them sore as soon as I applied the product. They were very rough to apply. As they made my eyes water terribly, the eye liner was practically all off by the time I was finished!

      When the eye liners eventually (and unavoidably) gave me conjunctivitis, my Mum decided to buy me a brand eye liner. Using the advice from my, at the time, nineteen-year-old sister, she bought me Rimmel London's Soft Kohl Eye Liner from Asda for around £4.99.

      When I first used it, I was so excited with the results. I couldn't believe how much eye liner had gone on my bottom waterline in just the first sweep. It felt so nice, almost creamy. What shocked me even more is how long it stayed in place - the entire day!

      After I realised how easy it was to apply to my bottom waterline, I experimented with using it on my lids, too. Obviously, you don't get the same results as you would if you use a liquid eye liner, or a gel liner, as they are much thinner and more precise, but for a thick lining on you lids, this eye liner is perfect.

      Another thing that impressed me immensely with this eye liner is how black it is. The shade is 'Jet Black' and I'd say that is certainly one way to describe the solid black colour. And no matter how long you keep it on it doesn't smudge at all - another favourite of this eye liner.

      The price of this eye liner, both in stores such as Boots, Superdrug, and even supermarkets like Asda and Tesco, and online is about £2.99 - a fantastic price!!

      I thoroughly like this eye liner, and would highly recommend it to anyone, regardless of age or experience with make-up.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Made me believe in pencils again

        I hate eyeliner pencils, they are something I never buy. I find them scratchy and uncomfortable here are my thoughts on this one.

        Packaging
        This comes in the standard pencil form with a black lid at the top. The whole thing is black with all of the writing in silver. This is good quality wood although during sharpening it, bits have fallen out, possibly from where I have dropped it in the past. As this is so small and slim it can easily be out into the side pocket of a bag or purse making it very easy to carry around.

        The pencil
        The first thing that surprised me about this pencil was that it was fairly creamy. They normally dry my eyes out and make me very uncomfortable but not in this case. It created a nice line that was a little too thick, but this could be saved for the evening. It went on very black, which I liked.
        This did not smudge either, which is another issue I have with most pencil liners once this was on it did not budget until I was taking it off that night.
        After wearing this a couple of times it needed a sharpen (I always dread this with eyeliners) and it sharpen fairly well, as I have explained previously there were a few bits lost here and there but otherwise it sharpened quite well. This didn't go scratchy or uncomfortable and the eyeliner was not ruined in the process.
        This is sweat proof but not waterproof. Due to this if you are in a particularly hot environment this can flake onto your upper cheeks and make a mess, so maybe save it for the colder months!

        Price and Availability
        I got this for free from a local chemist when I bought a few ther things but I can see this is on Boots website for £2.99, this is after price for a liner especially a pencil one I actually like. This can be bought at so man different shops onlin and on the highstreet.

        Conclusion
        Due to the flaking I am going to have to deduct one star but other than this, this has made me believe in pencil lines again!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Recommend!

        I tried this pencil after my friend recommended it to me. I struggled to put eyeliner on my water line and my old pencil at the time was dull and didn't go on my waterline at all. This one is perfect for doing that and outlining the top of your eyes. There are 5 colours in the range. Jet black, white, Jungle green, Stormy grey and Stable brown. I personally have the jet black so I will mainly talk about that one but I am thinking of getting stable brown colour in the future as I am after the more subtle soft look.

        The Jet black colour really is jet black. It gives a strong colour that doesn't fade throughout the day. It makes your eyes defined and makes them stand out really well. The pencil itself isn't too chunky like some of the eye pencils you can get now. It is an average pencil size with not too thinner tip, making it easy to apply a thin or thicker line depending on your preference. This is easily suitable for day and nightwear and it very versatile. It is very easy to hold and apply. However it is easily smudged, which is annoying you accidently rub your eyes or cry etc throughout the day. But this does mean that it easy to blend with your eye make up and it is very good for creating a smokey eye effect. The texture is slightly creamy and it is very easy to remove with a makeup wipe.

        This eye pencil is absolutely brilliant value for money at £2.99 as it does a fabulous job and I have been loyal to this for a number of years and I do not plan on converting soon. My first lasted me for about a year so I really cannot complain about the cost!

          The best eyeliner!

          I was looking for a new eyeliner and my friend recommended the Rimmel range. She uses the soft kohl kajal eye liner pencil and I decided to buy the same one as her eyes always look amazing.

          The Rimmel soft kohl kajal eye liner is available in several colours, I will be reviewing the jet black one, but it is also available in Jet Black, Stormy Grey, White, Jungle Green and Sable Brown.

          The eye pencil is 5in in length, and has a net weight of 0.04 oz which is 1.2g, making this pencil very light. It has a black plastic lid, which has a barcode sticker on. The pencil itself has silver writing engraved into it and the end of the pencil has a black domed end, unlike a normal pencil.

          It looks premium, and has the Rimmel logo with crown design around the end. The words Soft Kohl are in bold in the centre of the pencil, as well as some information in another language which I believe is Italian as it says Made in Italy. It also has a picture to show that the pencil should be used within 30months of starting, and the address of Rimmel London.

          The tip is quite thick and when applying this pencil it makes a nice thick line to really outline my eyes. It defines my eyes well and I love the look. Great for day and night use. If you want a really dark line, it looks great to draw another layer, thickening and strengthening the colour. It lasts all day without fading, yet is easy to remove with eye make up remover.

          The pencil is easy to sharpen, and one pencil is lasting me ages, so it is well worth the cost of £2.99 at Boots. (currently on a 3for2 offer). I will definitely buy it again. 5/5 stars

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Brilliant buy, definitely recommend this.

            When I first started wearing eyeliner, probably about 5 or 6 years ago, this was the first eyeliner that I chose. And it was a very good choice!

            The Rimmel London Black Kohl Eyeliner is a soft black pencil eyeliner that really defines your eyes. When sharpened, it can produce a nice thin line across your upper lid, or if you're looking for that darker smoky eye effect, it can be used with a more blunt tip, to create a thicker line, either on the top or bottom lids. Also to help with this smoky eye look, this eyeliner smudges very easily, so if you don't want a harsh edge on the line, you can smudge it out, either with your finger or a small makeup brush.

            The only problem I found with this was that sometimes, if left too blunt, small lumps of the eyeliner stick to your eyelid, making the line look less neat. But these are easily removed, by a quick swipe of your finger, or again, using a small makeup brush.

            The product is great value for money, at under £3, and it lasts ages. It is probably the best value makeup I've ever bought!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Looks nice and stays in place

            I had been trying out all my new make up but wanted something still to define my eyes a bit more of an evening as I wear glasses and wanted my eyes to stand out more through the glass lenses. I wanted to get an eye liner so had a look in Boots to see what was on offer. They had the Rimmel soft kohl pencils going for £2.99 which was quite a reasonable price so I bought one.


            I had used kohl pencils before so knew sort of what I was doing with it but had never tried this one. I bought it in black and applied it just to the lower lid between my eyelashes so it looked like my lashes were thicker. I also used it on the top eye lid just at the very outer edge. It made my eyes look a lot larger and they really stood out behind my glasses.


            I wear this eye liner mainly of an evening unless I am going somewhere special and want to make an extra special effort. I find if I apply the liner at about 6pm it still looks nice at 10pm which is 4 hours (and about as much as an evening out lasts for me now a days lol). It doesn't really smudge unless I forget I have it on and rub my eye which gives me a black finger and then I know I need to run to the wash room and sort it out. It is also easy to remove of an evening. I use baby lotion to cleanse my face of a night and I don't need to rub it hard to get the eye liner off.


            If you are looking for a decent eye liner pencil then I would recommend this one as it was a good price and works nicely with little mess.

            a great bargain and gives a great look

            I love my make-up and I love to try new brands when mine run out, so when my eyeliner pencil had got too small to sharpen any more I headed off to Superdrug to get myself another one. I spent quite a while looking through them all and finally decided on the Rimmel soft kohl kajal eye pencil, took it to the till and paid £1.99 for it. To be fair all eyeliner pencils look very similar so the appearance of it wasn't anything special but it did the job.

            When using the pencil it went on very smoothly with no scratching and even after it has been sharpened it still does not scratch and has not splintered. I have the black one and it gives a clear, crisp, dark line that stays like that all day. It is also easy to smudge if you want a smokey look.

            I am really pleased with this eye liner and for the money that I paid for it I think it was a really great bargain. I would recommend this eye pencil to any one as it is easy and clean to use and you can get any look you want from it.

            Disadvantages

            Great buy

            Every girl needs a collection of eye liner pencils, I have found ones in the past that are awesome and terrible, I also have liquid eye liner in all my make up bags. I find with eye liner, sometimes liquid is the answer, other times a good pencil is needed for that smudged less defined look.

            I have been using a black Color Trend pencil from Avon recently, and this pencil is awesome, I needed another one and on one of my many shopping sprees, stumbled (purposely) into the cosmetics isle of Superdrug in search of a black eye liner pencil. I paid £1.99 for my pencil and it has been faithful and performed perfectly for me. The kohl pencil doesn't scratch and goes on very cleanly and easily. It also blends well if needed, a little smudge with the finger and it's blended easily.

            When sharpening it does so easily without splintering and for such a cheap pencil I am very pleased with the way it goes onto the eye and it leaves a neat sharp black line. I use the pencil above the eye line and along the lower lid line and I have no problems with it staying put either. All in all for a cheap pencil it performs no better or worse than any other pencil I have bought before. I will defiantly buy this again though.

            Get this in your life!

            So, I love trying out different items of make up and, as a result of this, have a HUGE draw full of various bits and pieces at home. I am not loyal to a particular brand as I often find that those that make good eye shadow, don't necessarily produce the best mascara!

            I have been searching for an eyeliner that I can wear every day for such a long time, but haven't been able to find one. Eyeliner was the one thing I never wore when younger as I couldn't really apply it very well. Several years, and lots of practise later, I was addicted! I've been through many different brands of eyeliner from Collection 2000 to Lancome and have just never found one that I've really been amazed by.

            I was reading some reviews on DooYoo and came across a really positive review on this product, so thought I'd try it for myself. I bought this eyeliner from Boots, where it was priced at a very reasonable £2.99 (and Rimmel products were on 3 for 2, so could have been cheaper). The product is available in: Jet Black, Stormy Grey, White, Jungle Green or Sable Brown. I decided to stick with what I knew best and quickly opted for the Jet Black pencil.

            It looks as you would expect any eyeliner to look - an all black pencil with silver writing saying 'Soft Kohl. Kajal eye liner pencil'. It also informs you that the product weighs 1.2g and was made in Italy!

            When you pull the lid off the pencil, it makes the most delightful 'pop' - completely irrelevant to the review of the product, but it does make me smile every time! The product goes on very easily and can easily be made to look more dramatic by layering it up. I don't tend to use too much at any one time as I do like to wear it every day for work. The most surprising thing about this product is how well it lasts. I usually apply it at around 8:30am and it is still there by the time I leave off at 5pm. Admittedly, it's faded slightly, but still very visible. This is a miracle for me, and something that I never thought I'd find in an eyeliner - particularly not in one that only costs £2.99!

            I haven't got it wet, but don't think it's waterproof. Although, having said that, I have shed a few tears with it on and it hasn't smeared or run as much as I expected! However, it does tend to smudge a bit if you touch it so I have to be careful not to rub my eyes too much.

            Overall, I am really pleased with this product, especially as it is such a good price. I am considering investing in some of the other shades as well now to add to my ever growing make up drawer! I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who wants a reasonably priced, long lasting liner.
