I've read several reviews about Kohl eyeliners, I was just wondering what the difference is? Is it the texture or something? Which one do you perfer more / brand? Which one is better for lining your inner eye?

Well, I know kohl has been used for thousands of years, at least since the time of ancient Egyptians. It seems pretty soft and easy to blend, but I dunno how well it compares with other liners, since my experience with make-up is pretty limited. I only ever used kohl and the occasional liquid liner, and I didn't really care for the liquid.
More awesome than a manatee!

As far as I know Kohl can mean a bunch of things.
There is a difference in pigments and oils between kohls and regular eyeliner, but im not sure what it is. Like Kuroneko said, the kohl is easier to blend and has a richer texture to it in general.

But there are also times when cheaper companies who will use "kohl" as a colour, not refering to a richer consistency.

On a side note, i love liquid eyeliner particularly on top of the eye. Its always been hard for me to get precise lines with penicl on the lid.

in my experience, kohl is generally smudgier and doesn't last as long.

...sexy, though.
