Review - Maybelline 'The Colossal Kajal' - New 12 hour formula

Today I am reviewing 'The Colossal Kajal' by Maybelline. 

I have been wanting to try this kajal for a while as it is much loved in the Indian beauty blogging sphere. This is the new 12 hour formula launched by Maybelline. I have not tried the old version so cannot compare, but let us see how this one fared. 

The Good
  • Smooth and creamy texture - glides on smoothly 
  • Lasts long on the lid (12-14 hours)
  • Lasts long on the lower lash line also (the above pic is after 12-14 hours of application, with one time touch up to clear the kajal gathered at the corners)
  • Twist up pencil - so no wastage of product 
  • Stays on the lash line and does not not smear down your lashes 
  • Cheap as Chips  

The Bad
  • Not available in Australia - I have never seen it here, if anyone has let me know
  • Does not stay on the waterline
  • The colour could have been more intense
  • Gathers up on the outer corner of the eye in 2-3 hours, but not a biggie as you can clean this with a Q-tip. 

The Price
175 INR (approx 3 AUD)

Overall, I would recommend this eyeliner. It is definitely a good budget buy. It is a steal at this price.

  1. i tried the earlier one but as u quoted it dnt stay on my waterline too ...

    1. yes sadly it doesn't stay on the waterline but so does a lot of other eyeliners, I haven't yet found one full proof eyeliner for the waterline ..
