My Experience with Diana of London Intense Black Drama Kajal Eyeliner:
Packaging: The Diana of London kajal comes in a deep coral packaging with the name written over it. The kajal is a retractable one which helps to avoid all sorts of fuss related to sharpening of a kajal. It is a very handy one which can be easily carried around in the bag. The bullet is hard but it can break if I apply a lot of pressure or twist it up more than needed. Hence I twist up only a little to avoid any breakage. It is affordable at 450 bucks but if you compare it to other drugstore kajals available, then this might turn out to be a bit expensive.

Shade, pigmentation and feel on the eyes: The shade available for this kajal is just one and it is called the “Intense Black”. The shade is an intense black colour and the colour pay-off is really good. I get the ‘intense black’ in 2 swipes. This is one kajal that shows the colour on its own and does not have to be rubbed under my eyes or over the eyelids. But on my waterline I need 3-4 swipes to build the colour. The kajal did not irritate my eyes and I need to be extra careful since I wear contact lenses but I did not face any issue with it.

Staying power: The kajal stays for a very average time of 2-3 hours on my waterline and for 5-6 hours on my lash line and over the eyelids. It does not smudge or budge that easily and does not come off with water too. But it does lose a bit of intensity and colour from the corners of my eyes. It comes off easily with a makeup remover but only after 2-3 swipes and it involves a bit of tugging and pulling as well. The kajal is pretty average; it does everything that a kajal should but I think I have used better kajals earlier!

Will I Repurchase/Recommend Diana of London Intense Black Drama Kajal Eyeliner?
No I think I would still stick to Lotus Colorkick kajal because this worked well but the Lotus one costs lesser and stays a little longer than this one.
