Eyes are windows to the soul. And what’s better than an intense kajal to brighten the said windows? We’re here to give you an up close and personal account of our experience with the latest star in town, Maybelline’s ‘The Colossal Kajal’.
The texture of the Maybelline Colossal Kajal stick is smooth and creamy. As it is creamy, it tends to break easily if pressure is applied. I recommend working with a light hand to prevent breaking of the tip. The kajal pencil glides smoothly on the upper lash line as well as the waterline. There is no tugging or pulling of the skin. The pigmentation is pretty good. However, you need to layer it at least twice or thrice to get good color pay off. I really like the color – it instantly adds brightness to my eyes.
The kajal sets to a nice matte finish within a few seconds of application. It has an impressive long lasting power. It lasted on me for good 10 hours, but it doesn’t live up to the brand’s claim of 12 hours staying power. It does not bleed or crease, nor does it smudge. I noticed light smudging only after eight hours of wear time. But, I would say it will crease faster on very oily eyelids. Therefore, I recommend setting it with a matching matte black eyeshadow to prevent creasing.
I did not notice any irritation, stinging, or allergy in my eyes. The kajal cannot be removed easily with just a face wash; you would definitely require a cream or oil-based makeup remover. Overall, this product turned out to be an impressive, budget-friendly buy. The only downside to the kajal is, you cannot achieve clean thin lines with it. Apart from that, the formula, color, price, and staying power turned out to be superb. It became one of the most popular kajals in India.
The Maybelline Colossal Kajal retails in a bright yellow and black colored carton cover case. The kajal is packaged inside the case. The packaging of the kajal pencil is similar to the color of the outer case. Sold in bright yellow and black color combination, the packaging looks very attractive. The cap shuts perfectly; it doesn’t come undone in my bag, and so, the packaging is travel-friendly. The kajal pencil comes in a retractable pencil form that has to be twisted up for the application. There is no need to sharpen the product. The kajal swivels up and retracts down easily, and there is no difficulty in usage. But, Maybelline Colossal Kajal ingredients are not mentioned on its pack.
