Yesterday Lee and I were analyzing the makeup industry and studying the recent trends in the market…yeahh as if! So we were discussing the latest PC Pitbull thing (Pardesi babu ne iss desi dil ko maan liya hai…really? really??) when she told me she had an appointment with her eye doctor. Apparently the Kryolan Ikonic Gel Eye Liner pencils (that have taken the Indian beauty blogging scene by storm) gave her an allergy.
It made her eyes red and watery everytime she used it. I was really surprised. I mean what could possibly be wrong about the famous Kryolan Ikonic pencils. But then she told me Kryolan neither manufactures those pencils nor owns them. They are made by this German company called Schwan Cosmetics. She later went to the Kryolan store in Delhi and had a long chat with the MUAs there. They had no clue about them either. You can’t find them at their website too.
So that makes me wonder the truth behind it. If Kryolan doesn’t own them then why are they being marketed with their brand name. What do you think about the whole scene? I just thought I would put it up here and let you girls know. Have you ever had a bad experience with these gel eye liner pencils?
