I've been on the lookout for a good quality jet black eyeliner and had pretty much made up my mind about buying Milani Liquiefye eye pencil in black... but after it being out of stock on almost all major international sellers I finally decided to pick up something locally from India.
After checking out everything from Revlon, L'oreal ,Inglot, Lakme` etc etc I'd shortlisted Bourjois Khol in Blackest Black and Maybelline Colossal Kajal pencil.So after a zillion swatches & going back & forth I finally picked the Maybelline Colossal Kajal.
You might wonder why would I chose this relatively humble Kajal over other more fancier khol pencils? Well for starters I found Maybelline Colossal Mascara to be one of the best in the market & had similar expectation from the Colossal Kajal Pencil.
Secondly this one is a retractable tube, which though contans lesser product but no sharpening means a ready sharpend tip always and no product wastage.
But the deal clincher was the fact that while rest of the liners smudged easily this one held its ground.Plus its comes at a bargain basement price of INR 150/- (for 0.35 grams-yup the quantity is too low for the price)
The product is extremely well pigmented,smudge resistant & claims to stay put for 6 hours. I actually put it to test & I've been wearing it for over & hours now its still in place.
I quite like this Kajal pencil & yes would re-purchase.Its available at all Maybelline counters across India.
Scroll down to see the swatches. If you've used this do let me know your experience.
P.S.- New U outlets have a combo offer -15% discount on purchasing Colossal Mascara + Kajal together.
