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):

Almond Oil-10%

Mulethi Extracts-2%

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.
IMBB Rating
1 out of 5(- 4 for smearing and +1 given for the herbal ingredients)

  1. I bought this for the simple reason that it is coming in a deal and it’s herbal. Pathetic experience, it smudges a lot.
    But ya i do use it when I am going out for 2 or 3 hours and in order to prevent smudging I use compact below my eyes( an advice I got from IMBB :thanks:) or use powdered eyeshadow to line the lower lash. Then it stays for 3 -4 hours without much smudging.

    This kajal is also very difficult to be removed.

    My fav so far was Lakme 9 to 5 Eye liner.

    Want to try Maybelline Colossal Kajal 🙂

  2. even i have this one…used it a few times and then bought the vlcc one…that smudges a lot too, but a bit less that this one..right now, m using the maybelline colossal one..n LOVE it.. 😀

      1. Do give it a try…i have super watery eyes and most of the kajals i wore came down to my face…the mayebelline colossal one has been the only kajal to a) stay on my waterline and b) not smudge/streak/feather etc.. so right now, it’s my HG.. 🙂

  3. I also have this one, its good if you use on upper lid and smudge a bit to create smoky look,its great there,But on waterline it really doesnt stay ! I am liking Maybelline kajal and lakme kohl too !

    1. I agree with you. I have the himalaya kajal, and I use it for the smoky look effect, but not on the waterline…Maybelline Colossal is the BEST so far….

  7. you know I have used this kajal for two years straight during my college time and i never liked it too much but I guess that almond factor got stuck with me. 😀 😀 Also i guess i was least bothered about my kajal smudging or it not staying on my waterline for long but if you ask me today, i guess I wont pick it up again. :))

    1. Our make up queen not bothered bout kajal smudging :stars: :stars: :stars: :stars: n ask her today, she will be particular bout all nitty gritties :makeup: :makeup:
