Maybelline Colossal Kajal - A Review

I'm someone who could skip makeup completely except Kajal, Eyeliner and Lipbalm. More often than not, while just barging out of the house to run some chores or to go to the nearby shop (or even a far away shop), obviously I wouldn't bother to wear any makeup at all. I mean, think of it, in Chennai's sweltry heat at 40°C, while setting out at 11AM - 3PM, its just painful, even if its in an A/C car and any makeup is completely useless, as your blood is boiling and skin itself is melting!!! 
Well, all I do is apply loads of sunscreen, kajal, eyeliner and lipbalm. Even if I don't bother to wear makeup I cannot skip my eyeliner and kajal. They are like the as necessary as moisturizer or sunscreen. For me, they aren't even makeup, they're essentials!
Once somebody asked me, if I use a liquid liner or gel liner? No, neither, ever since the eyeliners started coming in these twisty sticks, I've switched to those! Its the most convenient, spill proof, least messy and quick! I've tried several brands of these and a recent addition to this list is the New Maybelline Colossal 24 hrs Smudge Proof Deep Black Kajal!
The packaging is exactly the same like before with plastic outer case in yellow, perfectly travel friendly. This time its boosted with Aloe Vera, Vitamin C & E. This time its claims to have a Intense Black Fix Formula with deep mineral color which makes it stay smudge proof and water proof all day long.
So, did it live up to the expectation? If you've been following my Travel Blog, you might know that I was at Kabini for my birthday and there I went into Nagarhole National Park. Later on, I'm surviving the heat waves and sweltering weather of Chennai. I've been wearing this Kajal in both instances. In the dust and sweat of the jungle safari, and my constant rubbing of my eyes, it survived exceptionally well for atleast 10 hrs post which I washed off my face. Here, in Chennai's heat wave condition without A/C, the kajal stayed good for atleast 8 hrs without smudging (in the 2 sets of pictures above, each are in 8 hrs difference)! That's just unbelievable!!!

P.S: The product was gifted by the company for reviewing purpose, however the opinions are of my own experience and are this post does not to advertise the product.

  1. its nice and black!
    keep in touch

  2. I honestly have never heard of this particular make-up item at all. I guess the eyes are really the feature that makes the strongest statement.

  3. Is it really that waterproof? I bought my silkygirl eye liner by mistake and it smudges so badly that I regret spending money on it! Will try this out instead~

  4. It's nice that the eyeliner survives event the tough conditions. It really is a good one to have on your travels.

  5. I like their mascara and lip colors and will look for the US version of this kajal in the store. I'm impressed by its durability.

  6. Wow, this is beautiful. It is not my thing though, but sound great cause you're giving me chance to somehow get an idea about girls thing. I might recommend this to some of my close girl friends and let them check it out. Thank you so much for sharing!

  7. I live in a humid and hot place so wearing make-up can be quite inconvenient. A Kajal seems like a better option than eyeliner.
