We Indians always love to wear a deep black thick Kajal and I also love this look. Maybe last few months I haven’t wore lots of dark black Kajal I kept my eyes more natural in this last winter. But after getting this new Maybelline colossal super black Kajal I am going back to my old look with its super black stroke. This is a new launch by Maybelline India and their new launches are raining onto us. This super black is my new love.

My Experience with Maybelline Colossal Super Black Kajal:
I am super excited about this new kajal. It comes in a black and yellow paper packaging with all the details mentioned at the back of the pack. It definitely looks attractive and nice. But it needs to be opened from the front of packaging so it looks messy.
The actual Kajal comes in a black twist-up pencil form with yellow detailing. It looks bold and I feel that the packaging is quite improved than their older one. The twist mechanism works nicely and it is travel friendly. But they have increased their price from 175 to 300 and I really don’t understand the reason behind it as it is just blacker than the older one.
New thing about this Kajal is the intensity of the shade. It is a super black with matte texture. It gives a very deep jet black shade with 1 stroke. It is extremely pigmented and one stroke is good to build up nice color intensity. I just need two strokes for the exact super black color. It can brighten up my complexion and makes my eyes dreamy black. This is blacker than their older one as it is super pigmented. This is the actual black shade which every Indians want in their kajal.
It has a very smooth soft texture which glides easily on eyes and also on the water line. There is no tugging during application. It is so easy to apply and it goes very smoothly without any irritation. It has lovely matte texture which adds more boldness to my eyes. It looks just perfect on my eyes and is so easy to create a thick or thin line with this. I also like to apply this as my eyeliner on upper eye lid.
It goes easily and gives a very neat and clean look. It doesn’t look patchy or dry due to the soft texture. But as it is a matte Kajal so it dries out quickly so you need to work fast with it. But this is not a huge problem. It comes with a smudge- proof and water proof formula. It stays even after washing my face. This is a real good quality Kajal by Maybelline.
It says that it is a 16H Kajal, which sounds so amazing; and it actually stays long on my eyes. As I have pretty normal eyes, any kajal always stays on my eyes for long. Only for testing it, I had applied this at 7am and after 12hrs it still stayed on my eyes. Yes, it smudges little at the outer corner of my eyes but that happens after 8hrs. It stays nicely on my water line and after 10hrs it fades little, but definitely not messy. It can survive your whole long day. Basically who wears makeup that long? Just set your under eye area with a compact nicely and then apply this Kajal, it provides a long lasting black finish.
Overall I am obsessed with this new super black Kajal and it is just perfect for my daily look.
