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.

    I would love this eyeliner! I’m always on the look out for better liners and I know YSL is a really great product but never have the chance to grab some. I also love wearing the winged look. I can’t imagine how much better YSL is than drugstore brands!

    So far I’ve been shying away from smoky eyes and winged eyeliner, because I thought it would be too difficult and time consuming to achieve a decent result (and not ending up looking like a clown!). However these crayons look easy to use and I think with these I’d give it a shot! Thanks for the chance of winning a set.

    I’m hesitant to spend $$$ on eyeliner. I feel like skin care is where I’m most likely to
    Be spendy. HOWEVER, I would use these if I won. Obvs. ?
