Product Description

When Barry Mero founded his network of retail cosmetic outlets in London in the early 80s, he discovered that no one was producing the intense and lively colours his customers wanted. He decided to create his own range and very quickly Barry M became a classic name in its field. From Barry M comes this ultra smooth, long lasting Black Kohl Pencil, full of dense colour for precise application. Every touch will underline eyes or define eyebrows for a powerful effect. If you are looking for more intense blacks, you can also try Barry M Black Supersoft Eye Crayon, Intense Black Eyeliner Pen or Liquid Eyeline.

Manufacturer's Description

Kohl Pencil. Super soft yet long lasting eye pencils that are packed with dense colour for precision application. Every sweep can emphasise your eyes or define your eyebrows for dramatic effect, and can be smudged for extra sex appeal.

As an older woman, I'm slowly having to discard my usual makeup standbys and that includes my usual eyeliners. Gel based were too hard to apply (having to faff about with the brush every morning was no use), liquid liners too harsh because when they dry they give a caked finish which doesn't sit well on a 'mature' eyelid. Eyeliner pencil were useless - even warming them up with a hairdryer was no good.

Then I read about Kohl eyeliner pencils and realised that this might be the answer - kohl being much softer than crayon.

Amazon's price was the cheapest I could find, and to enjoy free p&p I bought a book from my favourite author as well!

Barry Ms kohl eyeliner pencil goes on smoothly - I find if I gently pull my lid to the side, I can get a better line - and the brown is a lovely rich, dark brown, black being too harsh for me. It stays on all day and comes off easily with the swish of a baby wipe.

What more could you ask for in an eyeliner?!!

Highly recommended.

I actually have these eyeliners in three shades: brown, gold and white.

For the general lining of eyes, they're all decent enough. Brown and gold smoke out/smudge well if you want them to or stay put if applied with precision, although this might not be the case if you have an oily eye area as my eye area is pretty annoyingly dry. The gold isn't particularly vivid, I'd definitely say it's on the more subtle side.

Want to put these liners in the waterline? This is their only downside, really. They don't have the staying power for that. Brown is gone within minutes, so if you're the type of person who's okay with re-applying, it's still not worth bothering because it vanishes at top speed. White, which is a good colour for making eyes look bigger, will last an hour or two but somehow looks flaky in the waterline. Gold on the other hand lasted all day on me in the waterline. But as I said, it's pretty subtle anyway, so I'm not sure it's worth it.

So, generally great, but not really ideal for waterlines.

I just got the white one hoping to try and use it to make my eyes seem bigger, Also for the price of buying a much cheaper brand in the shops (they are always more expensive then i remember them being). This is everything i could want in a pencil, looks great. Soft, smudgy and a nice bright colour in one stroke :) works perfectly. Will probably buy some more as add ons!

Colour Name: 30 - White
Well what can I say? I'm mighty impressed! The colour on the outside is exactly the colour I've bought to the letter which makes it easier to pick the colour that you want! Now this is a conventional type of kohl pencil however the consistency is almost creamy to apply with a high shimmer. This is so simple to use! You get the ease of using a sharp pencil (if you sharpen it) but the ease of use of like an eyeshadow pencil.
It's almost impossible to make a mistake as it's so creamy texture but if you do a small cotton wool bud would correct a mistake easily (even on the darker colours) and this doesn't go on heavy at all. It's none clogging and doesn't show up imperfections. Wrinkles to the eye rim are diminished as this product goes over the top opposed to getting 'eaten' by said wrinkles.

Also the amount of time this lasts when applied is quite amazing. I put mine on at 9am and it was still going strong at 3am with more life in it although I felt half dead. It lasts cos its not creasing and none smudging and doesn't mind the cold wind or hot clubs.
Even though on my eyes for that duration of time it never upset them or made them feel heavy or grubby and I never reapplied once but if I needed to (not that I do) I wouldn't be phased about drawing on another line or going over the top of existing eyeshadow.

The only drawbacks is that almost after every use you need to whip out your pencil sharpener and sharpen it because it's so creamy when used that it blunts quickly so you are using a fair bit of the product but saying that I don't mean it's gone in a week cos it isn't! lol Saying that some people make prefer it blunter but for me that doesn't give so much definition and even when sharp it's just as creamy on application and none dragging.

I was looking for a white eyeliner to use on my waterline, to get the effect of wider, brighter eyes, and stumbled upon this Barry M Kohl Pencil. I was impressed with the range of colours on offer, as well as the cheap price, and thought it was worth a go. I am very impressed with this pencil, considering how cheap it is. The white is very white with a thick application, but works best just swept along to give a soft white effect which isn't so obvious. The pencil itself is quite soft, making it gentle for application and easy to blend, you just need to be careful when sharpening it, as it can crumble easily if sharpened too much. The liner doesn't have excellent staying power, which is why I've given it four stars. Overall, I am impressed with the quality for the price, and would recommend for someone wanting to test out a new look before buying something more expensive.

This is definitely one of my favourite eyeliners. The nib is very soft so doesn't irritate the sensitive eye area, and the colour stays put all day. I've found that a little goes a long way, so I've had my stick for ages. Great value for money.

I own this eyeliner in a brown shade which is not available on amazon, and it highlights my eyes and makes them stand out without looking unnatural and overdone. If you're after a subtler look, this range of eyeliners is for you. Some of the other reviewers have complained that while some of the Barry M Kohl Pencils look as if they have a strong colour, once the colour is applied it doesn't look striking or bright enough. So if you're after a colourful, party look then you should probably consider another brand of liner.
