How are you all? I am sure terrific. Today, I am doing a short and convenient comparative post on some of the most popular kohls/black eyeliners. I am basically a kajal and eyeliner lover. You will not believe that a few years back, I never touched kajals because they all smudged like crazy on me. Thanks to Maybelline Colossal, now we all have a variety of smudge proof and waterproof kajals, which saved damsels like me from the ultimate “panda eye” distress. After I started following IMBB, I got started with not just black, but colored eyeliners too. *happydance*
The kajals/eyeliner which I am comparing today are ; from left to right ; Lotus Herbals Natural Kajal, Lotus Herbals Hypnotica Eye Contour Definer – Onyx, Lakme Absolute Ultimate Kohl, Maybelline Colossal Kajal, L’Oreal Paris Kajal Magique, Maybelline 36 Hour Gel Liner.
So, let’s get on with the comparative. Do suggest in the comments below if I forget some points.
Here are a few pictures testing the above claims. Sorry, for not taking Maybelline Gel Liner’s picture, I forgot. However, I can assure you that it is indeed as per the above claims and review, and better than the older version. You can check out it’s EOTD below.

Nice comprehensive post. Very useful indeed. 🙂
Thank you 🙂
Very useful post 🙂 🙂 🙂 beautiful eyes. 😀 . hmmm can’t get lakme in USA *waaa* . Really loved lakme one.
Thaaanks *puchhi* yes i too liked the lakme absolute one but nt as per the price..plus it has to be sharpened…u can pick up maybelline colossal and lakme eyeconic wen u visit india 🙂 in bulk *hihi* *hihi*
I have Lotus Kajal, *happy dance* but I also want Maybelline. *waaa*
Go…rush…buy…its available at an offer price of 149 tooo…superb quality at such an affordable price *happy dance* *happy dance*
Superb work Kadambari……well done *clap* *clap* *clap*
Thaaaank you jomol *puchhi* but kudos to u guys fr taking so much pain in compiling, presenting and publishing it…this was a tough job bt u guys can pull off everything 😀 😀
Maybelline Colossal is my favorite too…. great idea to post this comparison…
Hi five!! *hifive* love colossal *jalwa*
Hey! Great job 🙂
I had Colossal, but the problem was that as you got to the bottom of the tube, the smudge proof-ness disappeared :/ The last 1/3rd of the tube was not smudge proof or water proof at all!
I see you don’t have Lakme’s Eyeconic, it has all the same properties as Colossal, (color pay off, waterproof, smudge proof) and the price is near identical, but I never faced this problem of the end of the tube smudging with it 😀
Is that so? I never faced this problem *shock* And thanks fr posting the features of eyeconic here..u know it will really b great if people add the other eye pencils/kajals in the comments 🙂 I had eyeconic earlier but it turned out to b the duplicate one *headbang* u remember the time wen lots of fakes wer doing rounds? i was a victim *waaa* but i am thinking of getting eyeconic too *jogging* somehow i can never have enough of kajals and lip glosses *powder* *powder* greedy i am i know *hihi* *hihi*
Oh maybe only my product was defective :/
Do get eyeconic! It is kind of my HG pencil liner now 😀
I hoard eyeliners and lip balms like nothing! Even face washes hehe. So weird 😀
Hehe!! N i thot i was the weird one to have 5 kohls!!!! *hihi* *hihi* Hi five!! *hifive*
Hi how are u ? Superb post *clap* *clap* great efforts u have put in *jai ho* , I also love colossal for my waterline, nothing stays on longer on my watery eyes than it does and it also does not sting at all, for lining top lash line I prefer maybelline gel liner and lakme eyeconic, and for smudging out lakme absolute is best, have yet not tried the other options def want to try the lotus herbals kajal next 🙂
M good dhara…just busy wid exam prep…but that doesnt stop me from checking out IMBB every now and then *hihi* *hihi* Try the natural version of lotus and not the eyeliner one as it is a dud…and lakme absolute is good no doubt yaar but fr 700!!!!! *shock* it is not extraordinary…i get better results with maybelline colossal fr just 149!! It is the only kohl which stays fr hrs on my watery waterline 🙂 *hifive*
hehe *hihi* my exams are about to finish 😛 and yes I was not convinced on getting lakme absolute kohl but after seeing everyone raving abt it, I had to try it 😀 but def not worth the price, and m surely not going to repurchase it, will get the lotus natural kajal soon then *hifive*
Go for it *hifive*
Nice review… Grt comparison chart
Grt comparison… kadambari *clap* *clap*
Used to love colossal bt i love my colorbar i glide d most now
Thanks 🙂 I have glowing sapphire, firty turq and prunella from the i glide range..love them *happy dance* *happy dance* wanted to try blackout, then some reviews said that it stings on waterline and then it had to be sharpened, so i chose to stick with my beloved retractable colossal 🙂
A really good comparison post indeed, very detailed and well done! 🙂
Thank you 🙂
*clap* Amaazing post!!
Thaaaank you *puchhi*
Wow..very nice and informative! 🙂
How is lakme eyeconic in comparison to lakme absolute kohl??
Thanks 🙂 I have used lakme eyconic just once..long back wen it was first introduced..aft that i was a victim of fake one *cry* *cry* but i can tell u one thing…it is awesome..it might not be as good as absolute but the difference is just about 3 to 4 % in performance…so i wud say that at 199 lakme eyeconic is much better than absolute at 700…the better performance of absolute kohl does not justify its stunking high price *nonono* *nonono*
I have used colossal, i have an oily skin n it smudges a bit after an hour or two on me, i agree this 1 was better than all i had ever used, n i was quit happy with this in comparison to all until 1 of my friend suggested me to go for Deborah Milano, this 1 is tge best i have ever tried, i am having the pencil kajal and i am quite happy with that, not even trying to go for some other brand
Thats good sakshi…basically here i was trying to compare the common ones which r doing the rounds here..thanks fr the addition..will look out fr deborah milano’s 🙂
Awesome comparisons of kohls i have ever seen. Good job kadambari *clap* *clap*
Oooo thank u soooo much Dhanshree *happydance* *puchhi*
Hi Kadambari, really great work! I am a fan of the slightly smudged look, wherein i apply kajal on my lash line and smudge the outer boundary a bit. Can you suggest a kajal for that?
Hi kasturi 🙂 all the above kajal r good for that.. Just remember to smudge immediately after application, as all these kajal are smudge and water proof.. Then ur smudged look will b set for the day.. Hope that helped 🙂
