Maybelline The Colossal kajal
Colossal kajal has to be the most used product in my vanity. I am a colossal loyalist and this is an essential item in my daily office makeup routine. I mostly use it on my waterline and occasionally use on upper lash line and smudge it.
MRP: Rs. 175
Packaging: Same old yellow packaging, the color makes it easy to identify in the makeup stash. The twist up packaging is easy to use and leads to no product wastage as you need not to sharp it.
Formula: The formula is soft and creamy and glides easily. The formula doesn’t sting my eyes and didn’t caused any irritation.
Color coverage: It is not the blackest of black but gives nice black color in single swipe and you can build up the color with multiple swipes.
Longevity: It stays on my waterline for 4-5 hours and afterwards there is minor fading. After 7-8 hours there is significant fading and it transfers slightly to lower lash line. On the upper lash line it stayed on me for 2-3 hours and then started transferring to socket line but then my eye lids are oily and people with normal eye lids may experience better longevity.
-Nice and different packaging, at least it is not the same black twist up.
-Formula is nice, smooth which makes the application smoother.
-Good color payoff, it is not the blackest of black but then you can build up the color in multiple swipes
-Good wear time, it doesn’t fade away till the time you completely remove it with a remover.
-Does not irritate the eyes
-Doesn’t live up to its claim of 12 hours.
-Not totally smudge proof, I have experienced the slight transferring as well.
My verdict: It is a nice kajal considering the budget, color payoff and longevity. I recommend it.
