If you read our February Mail post you may be aware of Maybelline's #WontSmudge campaign. Maybelline has turned 100 and the brand is celebrating its hundred years of beauty and Makeup by relaunching its best seller Colosal Kajal. Just in time for the celebrations we have decided to review the Colosal Kajal for you.

 My Experience:
The Maybelline Colosal Kajal comes in a yellow and black retractable packaging. This is a plus point as no sharpening is needed and so there isn't a loss of product.
The kajal is perfect for waterline as well as lids. Upon application, the texture feels extremely smooth and the kajal glides effortlessly onto lids without any tugging. The color payoff is very good. A single swipe can give you quite a dark black color. However, I feel that it doesn't show up as intense on the waterline but then that is probably because I have too watery eyes. A major pro is that the kajal does not sting eyes which makes it a hit for people with sensitive eyes.

The kajal is so good at defining eyes that I have been using it for an eyeliner. Even though my eyelids are oily, the kohl did not smear on my eyes and appeared almost the same even after the 7 hours that I wore it. I haven't worn it for a complete 12 hours yet so I can't testify for its 12 hour claim but I personally think it might not last that long. Still a good thing is that it does not vanish entirely and there is always a hint of color left. It doesn't smear either, so you are in no danger of getting raccoon eyes unless you rub your eyes vigorously.
The days when I wore kajal religiously are long gone and Colosal Kajal is my first kajal in a long long time. I must say Maybelline I am impressed.
And before I sign out, Happy Birthday Maybelline.

Price & Availability: Maybelline Colossal Kajal can be bought for PKR 299 at all leading stores across the country. You can also buy it online from just4girls. Visit Maybelline New York's Pakistan facebook page for more information. 
My Rating: 4/5
