Do you have a SMUDGE-FREE Dream ? Get smudge proof with Maybelline Colossal Kajal (Review & Swatches)

Smudge proof , Water proof , Glides effortlessly , Butter smooth and Amazing color Pay-off, sounds like a dream for Kohl lovers but not unachievable .Today I am talking about one such product that I am head over heels in love with these days .Its Maybelline The Colossal Kajal in Extra Black & Torquoise. Since I am a linner fanatic and love to line  my eyes with colored liners these two were like a must have for me , plus I had always wanted a smudge proof formula . So is this kajal an answer to all my liner prayers ? Let's have a look shall we :D

Maybelline The Colossal Kajal 12 Hr Formula- Torquoise & Extra Black



Mayeblline The Colossal Kajal 12 Hr Formula:


The Extra Black Maybelline Colossal Kajal 12 hour creates smudge-free bold lines that last for up to 12 hours. Fortified with 5 enriching ingredients; Olive Oil, Esters, Emollient Butter, Vitamin-E, Vitamin-C Derivative & Conditioning Agent, the new formula not only beautifies eyes, but soothes and nourishes them as well.

 My Experience:

I have given a major blooper in the beginning of the review by literally swooning over these kajals ( I am sorry for that ) but the point is I actually love these and use them on daily basis (yes the torquoise one too ! ). First of all comes the packaging . These kajals come in plastic covered simple cardboard sheets with all new claims of 12 HR SMUDGE PROOF FORMULA screaming out loud . The black one gets black highlights and torquoise one get torquoise (well isn't that obvious ) . You have to push the kajal in backward direction to get them out. The kajal pencils come in same ol' twist up plastic tubes, twist as much as you want the tip to be out for application ( I wouldn't advice some vigorous twisting out the nib ) . The new EXTRA BLACK one comes in black tube with a yellow cap and torquoise one comes in a yellow tube just like the old 6 Hr formula Black kajal. 

These kajals are super dooper soft, trust me I mean it !! They glide in effortlessly, don't tug on my eyelids and give a really smooth line in a single stroke as the color pay off is really good (Thumbs up Maybelline). The kajal sets off pretty quickly and gives a pretty matte finish,which the torquoise is a bit pearly .One thing I personally don't like about the twist up pencils is the inability to sharpen the tips once they get blunt so you can't get a fine line if you want to. 

Now, the best part STAYING POWER ...It really lives up to its claims of 12 HR SMUDGE PROOF FORMULA . I use this kajal daily and by the end of the day its still there with all its intensity ,not on my crease but on my lash line which makes me super happy . I tried it for 12 hrs straight, with no touch ups at all , a little nap for an hour and 2 times of washing my face with plain water and it was still there when I towel dried my face. Here I must say it was the extra black after all this but it was there and was BLACK. I majorly use the Torquoise one to line my lower lash line and its formula consistency and the staying power is no less the Extra Black Formula.

Another good great news is ,it doesn't irritate your eyes ( beauties with sensitive eyes ,can you hear me ?? ) I usually don't use it in the water line but on my lower lash line and I have a bad habit of forgetting that I have something on my eyes but it doesn't make me look like a bad casing of beating with a panda eye :D it stays just there unwilling to budge just gets a little less intense. For water line , the color pay off is a bit MEH. No intense color there and for watery eyes like mine its gone within what like 2 hours ? So a big no for water line and I say just get it for your upper lash line.

 Comparison between 6 Hr and 12 Hr Formulas:


I haven't reviewed the old Maybelline The colossal Kajal 6 hr Formula separately,but with this post I have the opportunity to compare them both:

Maybelline TheColossal Kajal 6 hr & 12 hr Formula Comparison ( swatches)

Thumbs Up for:

  • Smooth creamy formula
  • Doesn't smudge or budge
  • Doesn't need layering, single stroke gives intense color
  • Doesn't transfer to Crease ( I have oily lids)
  • Stays put for more then 12 hours
  • 2 colors to choose from
  • Twist up packaging makes it safe to take in purse , no danger of cap falling off and creating a mess in your bag
  • Easy availability
  • Affordable

Thumbs Down for:

  • Can't sharpen the tip once it gets blunt
  • Poor staying power on water line
  • Twisting up too much may result in breakage due to its very soft formula , so just twist it up a little.

Price & Availability:

Maybelline The Colossal Kajal 12 Hr Formula is available for PKR 299/- at Maybelline counters all over Pakistan in all leading stores . You can get online too via Just4girls.pk or Beautyarena.pk.

Rating:

I give this little tube of wonders a 4/5, if only it had shown & stayed on water line as intense as it does on uper lash line it would have been a winner!

Baby Snowy nudges and purrrrrrr-suades you to get one for your self and try it !! She totally loves those intense black CAT EYE LINERS  ;) 


Baby Snowy wondering if she can get her eyes lined too

Have you tried the New 12 hour formula your self? What is your favourite eye liner these days that is smudge proof ? Do let me know in the comments below .
