BIOTIQUE ALMOND KAJAL REVIEW
I am yet to come across a girl who doesn’t like black Smokey eyes or just lots of kajal or kohl in the eyes to accentuate the look. It is said that your eyes are the mirror of your true self so who wouldn’t want them to be the most Perfect. Most of the girls in their teens start as a gloss and kajal person before turning into makeup lovers, I did and I am sure those who are reading the post also did so the importance of a good kajal increases many folds.
My hunt for a perfect dark non smudging kajal never ends( though I know there’s no kajal on this planet which wont smudge), I keep trying different brands ranging from Lotus, Himalaya, Hashmi, Avon, Amway to Biotique. I personally prefer herbal kajal as they don’t contain any harmful chemicals . I have very sensitive eyes. I have already done a review on Hashmi Kajal. today I will share my experiences with Biotique Kajal.
Product being reviewed:
Biotique Almond Kajal.
Shelf Life: 3yrs
Ingredients (as listed on the outer carton in which the kajal came):
What the product says?
Almond Kajal pure sesame oil, Sweet Almond oil along with extracts of Eclipta Alba and India Gooseberry nourish the eye area. This natural blend prepared in traditional Ayurvedic method improves your vision and promotes the growth of eyelashes. Made from natural extracts, you can apply this Kajal everyday to add sparkle to your eyes.
Packaging/ Price/ Quantity
It comes in a black twist up plastic case (like that of a lipstick), the cover is a little flimsy and might break if it falls from the hand. The price is 99 INR for 3 Gms. It is quite travel friendly and there is no need to sharpen.
My take on Biotique Almond Kajal:
I bought this kajal only for its ingredients since all of them seemed just perfect for what I was looking. It has a creamy texture and an intense black colour, just two swipes on the eyes is enough to get a nice pigmented black colour. Though it fared well on the ingredients part , as in my eyes did not sting when I applied but I was disappointed with the results, after one hour of application , the kajal had not only smeared but also it had run down on my under eye. My eyes looked like a paint brush tray in which black colour had been dissolved. It did not even stay for half an hour. These are the swatches:
(Top: two swipes, bottom: one swipe)
Pros of the product:
1. Creamy texture glides on smoothly.
2. Travel Friendly.
3. No need to carry a sharpener along.
4. Nicely pigmented, gives jet black colour to the eyes.
5. It has herbal ingredients.
Cons of the product:
1. Not only it smudges, it flows down the eyes( this reason is enough to stop a person from purchasing it)
2. Flimsy cover.
3. The staying power is very poor.
Will I repurchase?
It’s a big NO for me and would advice the readers also not to try it.
1 out of 5(- 4 for smearing and +1 given for the herbal ingredients)
