Best Eye Makeup Products in India
Here I’ve listed the ten most lovable Eye Makeup products available in India.
1. Maybelline Colossal Kajal:
Maybelline Colossal Kajal was launched in 2011 and created a furore in the Indian Market. It is the most popular Kajal in Indian Market right now. Priced at Rs.175, it is quite feasible and delivers what it claims. It is jet black, intense, smudge free and stays put in my eyes for more than six hours. It can be used both on the waterline as well as eyelids. The texture is quite creamy and should be stored in a cool place else it will melt.
The only con I found is that the ingredients are not mentioned any yes the price has been increased from Rs 150 to Rs 175.
2. Lakme Eyeconic Kajal:
Lakme Eyeconic Kajal was launched to give a stiff competition to Maybelline Colossal Kajal, and sure it did. The packaging of Lakme Eyeconic Kajal packaging and its colour is very appealing. It is deep black and smudge and budge free and the ten hours claim is somewhat true. It does not sting or itch and is claimed to be dermatologically tested. The kajal is smooth and glides on the eyes without any tugging or pulling. The ingredients list with this kajal also is not mentioned. Priced at Rs 199, it is surely worth every penny.
Right after Kajal, comes our next love the eye liners!

3. Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Liner:
Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Liner comes in a tiny tub and a specially designed brush. The texture of these liners is very creamy and gives intense lines with smooth and even application. It’s similar to liquid eyeliner, except, it dries faster and lasts throughout the day. It doesn’t tug and can be used as a base for creating smoky eye makeup. It blends smoothly and is thick enough to make your eyes beautiful .You can either apply it heavily or smear it. The only problem I find with them is that they tend to dry with time and the colour is not as black as it should be. I prefer blackest black eyeliners but you can give it a try. You won’t be disappointed.

5. Lakme Eye Artist Eyeliner Pen:
Lakme Eye Artist, is felt tip liner, the latest addition to the liner family. A felt tip eyeliner pen is designed for precise application on the eyelids. Lakme Eye Artist is extremely easy to use. The felt tip design is so effortlessly and easily controlled that within just one stroke, the perfect amount of eyeliner is distributed. The line can be made thinner or thicker, sharp or winged, long or short, and so on. You get an intense black colour in just one stroke and it stays on for four to five hours. But the only thing I dislike about it is that it is not water proof. The Lakme Eye Artist is priced at Rs 395 and is available widely across all Lakme counters.
6. Maybelline Hyper glossy Liquid Liner:
Maybelline Hyper Glossy Liquid Eye liner, launched in December 2012 is the latest addition to the liquid eye liner family, ultimately to the Indian eye makeup products. It comes in a black plastic bottle with long elongated handle. The brush is extremely thin which makes it easier to draw thin lines. It is of black ink colour of runny consistency and gives a glossy finish with just one stroke. Priced at Rs 225 it is a must buy for liquid eyeliners lover.

7. M.A.C Eye Shadow:
M.A.C Eye shadows are one of the best eye shadows available in Indian market. These shadows are really rich and highly pigmented and stay all day when used with a primer. It can be applied evenly and blends well. They are available in both palette and refills. They have around fifty refills and you can even customize the palette according to your own choice. The shadows are soft textured but are not crumbly soft. You might experience some fall out with lighter and glittery shades but that can be fixed with an eye primer. These shadows add a depth and dimension to the eyes and draws attention to the eyes. Priced at Rs 720, they are not the most reasonable eye shadows available, but they are well worth it.

Like M.A.C Eye shadows, Inglot eye shadows are also available in refills and palette as well. The colour selection offered is huge. The texture of these shadows is buttery smooth and extremely pigmented. They blend effortlessly with minimum fall out. The quality amount of product you get, the colour pay off, the range of colours offered and the staying power is simply outstanding. They work even better if used with an eye primer. And you get all these for just Rs 300 per refill!
Now can your look be complete without a mascara?
9. Maybelline Colossal Mascara:
Maybelline Colossal mascara is my HG mascara. I have been using it for past two years and didn’t feel the need to try any other one. This mascara gives my not so sparse lashes, a major volume and intensifies the look of my lashes. The lashes look great with no smudging and clumping. Just two to three coats and you are done. But it’s quite difficult to remove it and you will need a makeup remover to remove it completely. I find the regular ones better than the waterproof one. Price of Maybelline Colossal Mascara is Rs330.
If you want your eye makeup to last the day though, a primer is what you need!

10. Faces Metaliglow Eye Primer:
An eye primer is a cosmetic that is used to coat the eyelids prior to the application of the eye shadows so that the eye shadow can be applied in a smooth, even layer and stay put on the eyelids for a longer period of time. Faces Metaliglow eye Primer comes in a tube with an elongated wand. It has a slightly wet consistency and gets absorbed in seconds. It does what it claims, it prevents the eye shadow from creasing and smudging and intensifies the shadow colour. It keeps the shadow intact for at least eight hours. They are a bit pricey for Rs 699 and are available at all faces counters and online.
