Beauty expert Riddhi reviews Maybelline Colossal Kajal. Read to find out whether it is worth your money!
They say, “Eyes are the windows to your soul.” Since we are still adjusting to the new normal, thanks to the ongoing pandemic, every time we go out we have to put a mask on. And because of the mask, the only feature of our face that can still be seen are...our eyes. Now, we need to think of ways to make us look good even with the mask on, and what better way to do that than apply some amazing kajal to make our eyes brighter and more prominent? Not just that, it is said that ancient Egyptians used kajal or kohl to protect their eyes from the Sun and they believed it has numerous medicinal properties!
So now that we have established the importance of kajal being a must-have for our makeup bags, let’s talk about one of the most famous kajals that have been launched in the market by Maybelline—it’s the Maybelline New York Colossal Kajal. I bought it a few days back on Amazon and I must say I’m glad I purchased it and today, I’ll tell you about my opinions on this product.
First off, I need to tell you about the brand. It’s no news that Maybelline New York has taken the beauty and makeup industry by storm with its high-quality, yet reasonably priced products. Therefore, when I bought their Colossal Kajal, I was definitely expecting to love the product but when I used it, I was surprised! Because it definitely exceeded my expectations. For a kajal to be amazing, you need to see if it’s black enough, if it is easy-to-use, compact, and user-friendly. I would say I did find all of these qualities in this kajal. Now, about the price, I think it is very affordable but I found that it wears away easily, so you might have to buy them every three months if you are using the kajal regularly. That makes it not-so-economical. Now, let’s take a look at the details of this Maybelline product.
The kajal comes as a stick in a gorgeous black-and-yellow packaging. The retractable pencil form is hassle-free and you do not need to sharpen it for use. But, a word of caution here, use the kajal carefully since it might break off easily if you are not holding it gently while applying it to your undereye.
The kajal has a shiny black color to it, which I loved a lot. The texture is creamy and has a smooth finish. It is smudge-proof and water-proof. You can wear the kajal for up to 24 hours without a worry. One thing I particularly liked about the Maybelline NY Colossal Kajal is that, while applying, it moves so easily and my eyes didn’t become watery at all due to unnecessary tugging of the skin! So I would say this is a huge plus-point.
☆ Comes with the Intense Black Fix Formula with deep black mineral color
☆ Enriched with Vit C, Aloe vera and Vit E
☆ Water-proof and smudge-proof
☆ Lasts upto 24 hours on application
☆ The retractable pencil makes it easy to use
☆ The kajal has a sharp tip, so you can apply the kajal with incredible precision
☆ Requires repeated applications for the deepest black to make your eyes prominent
☆ Pencil is very delicate, might break off if not used carefully
After using it for about two weeks, I would say the product is definitely worth the hype. With 4/5 stars from over 2500 happy customers, I can say that many people would agree with me that this product is really good. After using it, I did not experience any irritation, rash or itchiness in my eyes. The pitch-black color really does make my eyes look nice and bright. I would definitely recommend all of you to try the Maybelline New York Colossal Kajal for a seamlessly perfect experience.
