Maybelline Colossal Kajal-Review, Photos, Swatches

Maybelline Colossal Kajal
Company/Brand Claim:  lasts 6 hours and is black, bold+smudge resistant.

Result: I must say I was not as impressed as I expected I'd be with this product. Although Maybelline is one of my favorite drugstore brands the Colossal Kajal falls kind of flat for me. I'm into extreme dark and bold black eye liners and the Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eye Liner (review here) fulfills my need. I understand that eye studio is a gel liner but I have used kajal/liners way darker and bolder than the Colossal

It comes in a yellow plastic twist up pen which is essential to carry. It is black but not quite like the classic black that I love. Glides on smoothly in one stroke. I apply it with a single stroke on my upper lash line and water line but need to reapply for better color payoff. Staying power is decent though. Doesn't go anywhere for 4-5 hours but will disappear if rubbed and bleed off. Now that's a turnoff.

Cons: Wears off with slight rubbing and bleeds off.

Maybelline Colossal Kajal comes in a 0.35 gram pen with no other color options.

Rating: 3/5

Take it:

You're looking for an everyday liner
You're not into intense colors
You like to wear kajal
You find it affordable

Leave it:

It bleeds off
You think it's not as dark as you'd like
It gives you panda eyes
It doesn't last very long
Wears off with slight rubbing

Price: Rs. 375/- 
Available at: Available online at Just4girls.pk  and Beauty Arena.pk

Conclusion: Maybelline has impressed me over and over again with its amazing products but this one was a disappointment, at least for me. Recommended? Can be tried once.
