Maybelline the Colossal Kohl smoked silver review and Swatches

Maybelline the Colossal Kohl smoked Silver

Maybelline has added 3 more shades to its Colossal Range

1. Crushed Emerland

2. Jewelled Jade

3. Smoked Silver

I have swatched Smoked silver and Jewelled Jade here. Crushed Emerland was not available so will check it out later. Lets jump to the review of Jewelled Jade.

MRP:  Rs. 249

Packaging: Same old yellow packaging with a hint of silver shade and name written at the bottom which makes it easy to identify and locate. It is a twist up liner and doesn’t require any sharpening hence no product wastage. This time there is no packaging carton that we used to get with black and turquoise.

Texture: Texture is hard if we compare it to its previous family i.e. black and turquoise but its not too hard either.

Color: Color is beautiful silver shade with shimmer but not over the top shimmer.

Application: Application is easy, you can apply with slight heavy hand as well and it won’t break. The slight hard liners makes the application easy and smooth as we won’t be having the fear of breakage.

Pigmentation: Pigmentation is average, you need multiple swipes to build the color.

Longevity: It stayed on my waterline and lower eye lid for 5-6 hours with slight fading. On my upper lash line it stayed on 3-4 hours and then started transferring. But then I have oily eye lids, the longevity may vary for others.

Pros:

  1. Lovely Color
  2. Ideal texture
  3. Smooth application
  4. Doesn’t break unlike previous two kajal’s of the same family i.e. Black and Turquoise.
  5. Good Staying power.
  6. Buildable color coverage, you can increase the intensity by multiple swipes.

Cons:

  1. No Packaging Carton as earlier.
  2. Not as Pigmented as black colossal kajal,  pigmentation can be improved.

My Verdict: I am happy with it, the color is nice so is the texture. I wish the staying power was little longer.

Rating: 4/5

Love, PJK
