Guerlain terracotta khol loose powder enhances and underlines the eyes. It is easy to apply and has excellent hold. Carefully shake the applicator inside the neck of the vial to remove excess powder. Apply the powder round the eye contour to open the eyes i.e. western style or along the inner rim for added mystery i.e. eastern style.

Difference between the Noir and BlueI have bought and used both the noir and the blue, there is a considerable difference between the two. As for the blue, I would agree with the previous reviewer, it lacks vibrancy and staying power. It just doesn't create the dramatic look that khol should, it doesn't last long and after a couple of hours is hardly noticeable.
Now the noir is another story, it is jet black and goes on like a dream, gives a sultry dramatic look to the eye-line and lasts all day. It clearly has much more pigmentation than the blue. I would give the blue 2.5* and the noir 4* would have got 5 if it wasn't so pricey.
Oh and don't forget the added bonus of being lead free!

Somewhat disappointingI have used powered khol for years and usually i buy the Eastern products. I have bought khol from Saudi and Kuwait etc. So i am very familiiar with powered khol and i was really hoping that this would be a superiour quality than the eastern brands. But i can't say that it is. It doesn't go on as vibrant as others i have used, at a quarter of the price and it does not last all day. I got it in blue which was a nice change and it looks nice but it is nothing special. And i will be going back to my usual brand.
Overall a very average product at a high price.
Another thing to bear in mind is that this product is good for 6 months once opened, the lifespan is quite short.

dazzling eyes - The real dealthis reminds me of my indian heritage and is a reminisence of the ancient eye makeup from back in the days. The packaging and application technique is a novelty and is non irritating to the eyes with no harmful ingredients. unlinke harsh waxy pencils, this gives a soft smokey-eye, hazey look in both the upper and lower lash line and waterline with just one swipe of the wand - as a makeup artist, this has been in my kit ever since it was launched!
