YSL 3-In-1 Khol, Eyeliner & Eyeshadow

YSL Couture Kajal 3-In-1 Khol, Eyeliner & Eyeshadow (win them) YSL Beaute’s Couture Kajal definitely makes the top 10 list of most innovative beauty products of Fall 2015. It’s the first time I’ve seen a Khol, eyeliner and eyeshadow in one product – perfect for achieving the neo-grunge look from the catwalks. This kajal crayon allows you to create that dark yet ultra-feminine style.

You can use Couture Kajal three ways. As a precision eyeliner, you can design a strong graphic look. As a khol, you can duplicate what I call the “Bollywood Khol” look from the runways of Paris and Milan. And as an eyeshadow, you can quickly create a smoky eye for evening. Better yet, the crayon is self-sharpening so you don’t need to look for a sharpener every second week. Just apply with the side to keep the point sharp.

“Intensify your eye look by prepping your eyelids for shadow by substituting your usual eye primer with Couture Kajal,” says Lloyd Simmonds, YSL Beaute’s Creative Director of Makeup. “Normal eye bases are generally a neutral shade, providing a slightly wet surface to allow the eye shadow on top to adhere better and therefore last longer. If you use your Couture Kajal instead of the eye base, not only are you preparing it for the eyeshadow on top, but you’ll be adding depth and mystery thanks to its intense dark, deep colours. It’s perfect for a smoky eye look.”


Lloyd says the best way to make a smoky eye look modern is to go for a bold look for the eyes, but play down the finish of your skin, keeping your complexion minimal and going light with your foundation or contouring.


There are four shades to choose from:

No. 1 Noir Ardent: a timeless black shade

Ysl couture kajalNo. 2 Bleu Cobalt: subtle navy provides depth and shade.

ysl couture kajalNo. 3 Bleu Petrole: an accent of petrol blue gives a sophisticated compliment to black.

ysl couture kajalNo. 4 Vert Anglais: an opalescent sheen of black infused with deep green.

    Like the look of the green, I’m not good with eyeliner and wondering if this would be easier.

    This looks easier than liquid liner and better for thicker lines too!

    I’d definitely try them. They look like they’re easy to use and the colours are fantastic, especially the one infused with green. I struggle with eyeliner application and hopefully they would be as easy to apply as they appear! @complemoomin 🙂

    I love the no 2 blue the best, but the green is different and would be nice for fall 🙂 @wrelli

    Oh, these look fun! I would wear all the colors for sure. I like the idea of the “Bollywood” kohl, but I think these could be used to deepen crease colors and get blended out with shadows and for the perfect smoky eye. Lots of versatility. @goldmeteor

    Definitely. I have been looking for a ‘precision’ eyeliner. The cobalt is particularly interesting to me. @bcgirll

    I would give them a try although I’d be pretty nervous. I’d have to go to a local makeup counter to get a lesson!

    As I read this article I couldn’t imagine how this thing work. I really love using eyeliner but with this a 3in1 khol is absulutely amazing. I would love to try this if I have one. The Timeless shade is so perfect! Oh I wish I could have one.

    I would love to use these new colors. Black has always been the basic. I would like to see how the No. 2 Blue Cobalt to see if it brings the color of my eyes out. I also love the black with dark green. That is really new and awesome. My Twitter username is @cynderma
