Currently Coveting: Guerlain Terracotta Khôl Kajal

If you follow my 140 character beauty outbursts via Twitter (@ThisThatBeauty), you are well aware of the fact that I am having a hot and heavy, rich and inky, love affair with Guerlain Terracotta Khôl Kajal. Why just this Friday, I tweeted this pic…

….while looking over my shoulder and keeping a watchful eye out for the Khôl Police – I mean, is having this much fun with Khôl during the daytime even legal? Can’t be!

Well before I’m carted away by the Khôl Coppers, I thought I’d share the deets on the dramatic daytime look I’m currently coveting.

Guerlain Terracotta Khôl Kajal in shade Black Frida has earned permanent residency in my purse. It’s another one of those products (like my classic red lip) that gets the look “done” in an instant. The richly pigmented (yet non tear-inducing) Khôl is perfect for us beauty girls about town who go from the office, to events, to cocktails…with little time to spare in between.

A quick rimming of Guerlain Terracotta Khôl Kajal is all it takes to amp up your eyes….in a flash!

While I generally pair Guerlain Terracotta Khôl Kajal with a nude lip, last week (at Thierry Mugler Angel launch party for Eva Mendes) I went hog-wild and partnered Guerlain Terracotta Khôl Kajal with red lips…surprisingly, it works!

Are you crazy for Khôl? Share your thoughts on my new found love!

    I know that kohl is an inherently smudgy product, but I’m curious about the wear time on this. Do you find yourself reapplying through the day?

  2. Felicia Felicia says:

    Tamara: I have never had the need to touch up my Khol through out the day. It’s surprisingly long wear and does not run…which is shocking bc my skin is tres tres oily!

    I have the oiliest lids ever and want to try. Hopefully, I don’t get the raccoon effect. ;) You’re wearing the entire look very well! Are you wearing you LQ Red Sinner? If so, love!

  4. Felicia Felicia says:
