I am reviewing this one for all you kajal lovers and more so for all you Maybelline Colossal Kajal lovers. I will try to slightly compare the Maybelline Colossal Kajal and this Eyeconic kajal. Clearly, this is a close take on the Colossal one, but still, I don’t want to give a last word on which one to pick over the other 😛
Lakme has come out with two new “Eyeconic” range products, a basic mascara and a kajal, which I think each one of us use on a daily basis. So, its a good call to come out with such products at such a great price point of Rs. 199 for the kajal and Rs. 250 for the mascara. One thing I absolutely love about these two is the appeal they have in terms of the packaging and the color and the name “Eyeconic” (remember “eye-am” from Maybelline?). This will be a hit with the younger girls (I am 27, not so old though) and also a hit with newcomers to makeup. I assume the price will go up very soon on this by at least 50 because that is the trend with Lakme and it happened with Lakme Absolute too. So, get your packs for trial now.
The kajal is a twist-up one, which thankfully retracts back in place. I hate the ones like Amway, which once twisted up, don’t twist back :/, but never mind. The description does not say anything about application on the waterline and I don’t use these type of kajals on my waterline. I stick to the Indian ones like Lotus or may be even Lakme Black Satin Kajal. This one is more for the lash line and I am not even trying it out on my water line because this one won’t glide well I feel.
The kajal is deep black, very smooth, but not like crumbly smooth. But still I want to point out here that I clearly find the Maybelline Colossal Kajal to be more black and intense any day. I am not carrying my Maybelline Colossal Kajal on this trip, so I can’t give you the swatch for it, but still, I remember how Colossal feels. This one might even be smoother than the Colossal kajal. It glides on very well, but still in a firm way.
This kajal wins in terms of “no-smudge” claims. I wore this to bed for an afternoon nap, this did not budge. I wore this even for a head bath and shower 😛 (things I do for my reviews :P), it did not budge. I can confidently say that this stays more on my oily eyelids than the Colossal one. I have oily eyelids and any non-smudge kajal smudges on the lid after say 4 hours, but this one wore for at least 8 hours and I can say that the 10-hour claim is true and so is the “waterproof” claim and it did not sting my eye a bit and I think the dermatologically tested claim is absolutely correct.
It wears for 8 to 10 hours, is smudge proof, very smooth and black. Just to compare, the Maybelline Colossal kajal is blacker, but this one stays on my oily lids for longer than the Maybelline one. This kajal is softer yet firm, and waterproof as well. Definitely worth every “paisa” for its non-smudge wear and the cute packaging. I won’t try this on the waterline, only the lash line. All kajal lovers, get it now!
