I think kajal is something we can all relate too being Indian girls, girls who do not use a lipstick or liner would still use kajal every day, we love our kajal and would not step out without it, so here goes some choicest kajal reviews on IMBB, click the links to read the full reviews by the authors.


Lakme Eyeconic Kajal

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. Lakme Eyeconic Kajal Review

Mac pro long wear eye liner: Night trail:

Pro Longwear’s long-lasting eye liner delivers creamy, dense colour that glides on smoothly. 12-hour water resistant formula stays put and smudge-free.

MAC Prolong Wear Eyeliner Night Trail

Lakme Black Satin Kajal

Jet black kajal for the blackest black delivery in just one stroke. Draw a sharp, intense line or smudge for a smoky finish.

MAC TechnaKohl Liner Graphblack

A mechanical pencil-style liner. In formula, soft and creamy, with an intense, rich, colour deposit. Blends on application: dries quickly to a long-wear, non-smudge finish. Versatile. An easy way to line the top and lower lash line of the eye. When applied at a 90 degree angle, provides a thin precision line. For thicker application, apply at a flat angle.

    I’m currently using lakme satin.. however not so happy with it… it smudges badly and… i look like *ghost*

    Faces Eye Pencil Solid Black is my favourite… *happy dance* however it gets over so soon.. but amazing staying power… *powder* *haan ji*

    1. Iv used almost all of these but none could stay on my eyelids more dan 2 hous *smack* . Well hashmi kajal is not available over here and i ve nt tried.. Controversies regarding lead content of hashmi kajal scares me *smug*

      1. I have used maximum of me when i say no one of them stays for more than four hours or so…But lotus herbals mad an exception.It only stayed but i could also remove it same efficiently..

  4. superb post…. will try faces kajal next πŸ™‚
    eyeconic works great but eyes dnt feel comfortable…
    i do use eyetex at home… smudges but super cooling n natural… *clap*

  5. Its been quite sometime i am regularly following IMBB. And this is my first comment. Well my fav one is Maybelline Gel eye liner and Lakme eyeconic kajal. Though the gel eye liner is not a kajal but I use it likewise. It is dark and smudge proof. Those who have not used it can give a try..its awesome!! *happydance*

  6. Excellent post neha. I loove my smolder *happy dance* *happy dance* *happy dance* used to love lotus kajal as well. I guess I’d repurchase it πŸ˜€

  7. Woooooooow such an awesome post *clap* *clap* *clap* *jai ho* *jai ho* i wanted to buy a new one as i am already done with colossal and maybelline gel liner application is time consuming *secret* so wanted an alternative *happydance* *thankyou* *thankyou* sooo much for this *puchhi*

  8. fabulous compilation neha *jai ho* *jai ho* love the colorbar and colossal *happydance*
    would love to try the lakme eyeconic *drool*

  9. maybelline colossal kajal is my favourite..I bot eyconic coz i heared such great stuff bt i din find it black enough..especially in the waterline it doesnt last long..btw great review *thankyou*

  10. wow so many kajals…. Fabulous post neha πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ I loveeee mac technokohl i graph black… Its my HG kajal… Using inglot kajal ths days.. Its pretty black n no smudging… Wanna try lakme eyeconic… Heard so many grt reviews… πŸ™‚

  11. ohhh n i wud love to add bourjois n loreal contour kohl.. Both r dark black n slight smudging like mac smolder… In college days we loved revlon stay on pencil… It was smudge proof n BLACK… N when i started workkng i used to use chambor stay on eye pencil… It ws water proof n super BLACK too… Very gentle n no harm to my sensitive watery eyes… Reminds me i shud repurchase revlon n chambor :p :p

  12. wow awesome compilation *clap* *haan ji* I love using kajal *powder* currently i’m using elle 18…..but it smudges coz of my oily skin….so which one should I use? and where can I get Kajals from brand Mumtaz and Stila in Kolkata….heard about them for the first time πŸ˜›

  13. Wonderful compilation and I love the smooth winged eyeliner in the first pic. But I would like to include Amway Attitude Kajal Coal to this list – it is by far THE best eyeliner I have used. The quality is comparable to Lakme Kohl Ultimate – smudgeproof, doesn’t sting on waterline, waterproof, insanely pigmented – but available at half the price. I strongly recommend the Kajal Coal for those who have not yet tried!

  14. super post…
    Currently m using eyekonic, colossal and avon.
    Have used himalya also.
    this artcle is goin in my bookmarks for sure πŸ™‚

  15. Very very informative post..Thanks a lot Neha *thankyou* ….i m currently using Faces Kajal…after reading this post my next one would be Lotus i guess..

  17. Wow.. a beauty treasure at one place.. *clap* awesome neha.. *clap* I love lotus herbal kajal bt since I can’t get it so am going to get loreal smoldering black kajal now.. *happydance*can u tell me dear which shade u ate wearing and which kajal on it first pic.. *drool* it’s superb know.. *jai ho*

  18. Good one Neha… I have tried so many brands Chambor, Colorbar, Faces, Ikonic, Maybelline Colossal, Revlon.. But all of them sting my waterline.. *cry* *cry* *cry* So far Bourjois and Attitude (Amway) are the only ones that seem to suit me.. Currently using Attitude one.. it’s jet black and doesn’t smudge… πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

      1. Rati / Jomol,
        How do I send my email address to neha?
        Please help me out. Thanks.

        Hi neha,
        If u need Amway Attitude Kajal, you can contact me.

  19. Biotique Kajal: this is my fav one! i tend to bleed out all my kajals except this…. untill i wash it off it stays………totally hooked on to it!

  20. Oh! Neha…… What a lovely post. Who says u r a lippie Queen , U r all rounder babes! *puchhi*
    I am done with Maybelline Colossal loved it, but presently using eyeconic and thanks to IMBB have also purchased Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate Kajal. Eyeconic is so good for upper lashline stays really looooong!! *oye balle*
    Want to try MAC pro longwear soon. *drool*

  21. I am using Lotus herbals but it smudges after a few hours and once the point of the kajal is blunt its difficult to use what should I do? Have used Revlon kajal in pencil but it broke off at the end & the pencil was hollow. Please suggest a kajal that’s has staying power & does not smudge

  22. OMG was the only thing that came to my mind as i was scrolling down this post.
    so many options at 1 place for kajal is really very good reference for girls / ladies.
    really a nice compilation Neha.

  23. Neha I must compliment you have lovely eyes πŸ™‚ *happy dance*

    and theright pic the liner and kohl both are lakme forver silk liner blacklast
    i use lens too, but not mcuh careful you can try blacklast from lakme for waterline πŸ™‚

  25. Awsume post..must say it helps a lot ..i hve been alwyz cnfused abt kajals..wht to buy or not but now i am pretty much clear…n my fav.. is eyeconic and eyetex..nd want to try mac ranges

  26. Such fabulous compilation. Can you somehow state top 5 in an order?
    I can tell you which according to me is the worst kajal, waste of money that I have ever bought.
    Thankfully it is not in your list.
    It is Chambor gel kajal.
    It is expensive- Rs. 550/-
    It is not dark at all.
    It hurts my eyes. They water profusely.
    It looks bad.
    It does not stay.
    You might ask, why did I buy it?
    Wrong purchase that I regret so much. I do not know what to do with it.

    1. max factor’s kohl pencil is equally bad.. But there are few ways in which you can use the Kajal.. Just apply them on your eye lid like a liner and smudge it a lil bit.. You will get that smokey eye effect.. Basically use it as a black cream eye shadow.. πŸ™‚

  27. Hi Neha,
    Try using The Body Shop kajal too..I’ve been using it for sometime now and it really is a fab product..Gives my eyes that smoky sultry look without much effort..Considering that I am not much of make up person yet (I’m just getting started and am currently hooked on lipshades), it is perfect…:)

  28. Hey…
    Mac isn’t really smooth though it stays.. Try christian dior… Bloody smooth and wow effect. Has a smudger to get that smoky eye effect πŸ˜‰
    The kajals could hv been better
    You missed L’OrΓ©al chambor n so many better kajals

  29. Right now m using Maybelline Collosal and I have found that soo far its very good to use .
    And if I want to change incase I will go for Mac..
    Also the Lipstick shades of Mac are Fab..
    I saw on my FB today n I really really loved it..
    Loved all the sahdes of it..
