How are you doing today? I’m keeping so busy these days. But anyways, I always get some time to pen down reviews for you beautiful souls and to keep updated with new launches. After reviewing the new launched Lakme Enrich Satin lipsticks, today I’m reviewing another new launch by Maybelline. There are 3 new shades of silver, green and blue. Read on to know if they are as awesome as its traditional black colossal kajal.
Price: Rs 249/ for 0.35g
Shelf life: 24 months
Shade: Jewelled Jade is a fine shimmery blue color. I can kind of relate this to peacock blue color.
What the product claims:
Maybelline Colossal Kohl Kajal enhances the appearance of your eyes.
o Infused with nourishing ingredients and vitamin E, this kajal gives soothing effect to your eyes.
o Smooth texture of the kajal glides effortlessly onto eyes.
o Color stays for minimum 12 hours without fading.
o It features a unique tip which makes application easy and comfortable.
My experience with Maybelline Jewelled Jade Colossal Kohl:
As soon as I heard of this new launch, I ran to Lifestyle to purchase this amazing kohl. 3 new shades *wohoo* I chose to purchase the kajal in Jewelled Jade shade as I’m soon going to run out of my blue eye liner. Although, when I purchased it; what surprised me was that this new launch doesn’t come in a cardboard outer packaging much like the other shades. Bad cost cutting idea I would say. This will deprive the customers of information like ingredients, claims etc.
The packaging is the same as every other Maybelline colossal kajal. No innovation here. Except for the brand name, product name and shade name, nothing else is mentioned on the stick. The cap shuts with a click which will allow the product to survive travelling.
‘Jewelled Jade’ is a peacock blue color with shimmer in it. The shimmer is the part of its texture and therefore it’s only visible from near otherwise it shines when seen from far away. The shimmer doesn’t hurt the eyes or anything.
The texture is moderately smooth but the pigmentation is low. A few swipes are required to build desired color and shine. A light hand at application is needed because it has a delicate tip which is brittle. Retractable and twist liners and kajals are better than the sharpening ones as it saves us from product wastage.
The stay time is fine too. It stays on for nearly 5 hours after which it starts to fade. It is a smudge-proof kajal which steals the brownie points! It can be worn either way, on the top lash line or the lower lash line. Either way it looks beautiful.
All in all, it’s a nice beautiful shade that will suit all skin tones and the color intensity can be controlled too.
Pros of Maybelline Jewelled Jade Colossal Kohl:
• Pretty shade
• Glides on effortlessly without tugging
• Smooth texture
• 3 new shades
• Doesn’t really irritate or hurt the eyes
• Suitable to all skin tones
Cons of Maybelline Jewelled Jade Colossal Kohl:
• Did not like that the the outer cardboard packaging is missing.
• Very delicate and brittle tip.
• Doesn’t stay true to its claim of 12 hours longevity.
Will I repurchase Maybelline Jewelled Jade Colossal Kohl?
I would love to try other shades from this range, because buying the same shade again makes no sense.
