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.
Doesn’t break unlike previous two kajal’s of the same family i.e. Black and Turquoise.
Good Staying power.
Buildable color coverage, you can increase the intensity by multiple swipes.

Will post the detailed review of the above items soon.
Colored eyeliners are my weakness, I have them mostly in all the colors. Today I am reviewing Colossal kajal in shade turquoise.
MRP: Rs. 249
Packaging: Same old yellow packaging but with a twist. It has a hint of turquoise shade at the bottom which makes both the Maybelline liners I.e. Black and turquoise easy to identify and locate. It is a twist up liner and doesn’t require any sharpening hence no product wastage.
Texture: Texture is soft and glides very smoothly but you need to apply it with a soft hand. While swatching the product on my hand the tip of the liner broke, so you need to take care of not applying too much pressure while using this product.
Color: It has very vibrant beautiful turquoise color with sheen which makes the eyes pop.
Application: Application is easy, due to smooth formula it glides like a dream and there is no tugging. However you will need couple of swipes to build the color.
Longevity: It stayed on my waterline for 6-7 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 with people having normal eye lids.
My verdict: I love using this kajal and it really makes my eyes pop.
I will give it 4.5/5. Half mark deducted for crumbly texture other than that I loved it.
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.
In my previous post i listed what all I have bought from Nykaa Beauty Lovers Sale- the Valentine Edition. I received two items today and thought to share the pics and quick swatches with you all. I was eagerly waiting for Maybelline The Colossal Liner – Black and from the initial experience it seems it will not disappoint me. It is a new launch from Maybelline and I wish that it is a quality product like Maybelline colossal Kajal. The color is intense black; the tip is so pointy and appropriately flexible. The flexible movement makes it very easy to glide.
I will soon update how it fares on my eyelids. I would love to test its longevity. Till then enjoy the pics Ladies 🙂
