Elle 18 is a quite popular brand in India and they are improving their quality with some amazing new launches. Today, I am going to review their new Eye Drama Bold Black Kajal. It is a great affordable option for daily wear. Let’s get into the review.
Price: Rs. 135/- for 0.35g
My Experience with Elle 18 Eye Drama Bold Black Kajal:
Packaging: Kajal comes in a very cute black outer paper packaging, with a nice girl’s face printed on the outlet. It looks girly, but mine one came in a little damaged condition so it looks messy. Actually, it is a retractable pencil Kajal with a nice cap. Twist up works nicely and it looks so pretty. I really impressed by its packaging.
Shade: It only has one shade that is bold black and yes it is a perfect jet black shade with a super pigmented quality. It needs only one to two strokes to build up the shade and it looks so bold on eyes.
Texture & Quality: Kajal has super creamy soft texture, that glides smoothly on eyes without any tugging, even on my water line. It is so easy to apply this Kajal due to its creamy nature. When I apply it on eyes, it looks like a glossy finish Kajal and it takes little time to settle down in a velvety silky texture. It doesn’t feel patchy or dry. Application is so smooth and even that makes my eyes beautiful. I can easily create thick line with it and it looks so perfect on waterline. Also, I can use it on both upper and lower lash line. I also used it as a base of my smoky eye look. It works nice in each ways. The bullet is quite strong that doesn’t break easily.
Due to its super creamy nature, it is not totally smudge proof. It doesn’t smudge automatically but with a touch or rub it smudges, still I love the quality. Also, it is decently waterproof. It doesn’t wash off with water, as a normal daily wear Kajal it works really nice. It also doesn’t transfer on my lid. It suits on my sensitive eyes perfectly. It is also easy to remove with a remover wipe.
Staying Power: Product claims that it will last all long day and yes, if I don’t touch my eyes, it last around 9-10hrs on eyes nicely. But, after 8hrs it looks little smudgy on corners. Also, if I rub my eyes it looks little messy. Otherwise it never moves from its place. It stays long on my waterline, around 6hrs which is so impressive. As the weather is quite pleasant now, so it last long but I am not sure about the longevity on hot messy weather, because it is not a perfect smudge proof Kajal. But, now it works amazing.
Overall, I am so happy to have it. It works nice and survives a long time on my eyes. I really like its quality, according to its price it is a great daily wear option for all.
