Maybelline Master Kajal Kohl Liner in Pitch Black Review

Maybelline Master Kajal Kohl Liner in Pitch Black Review

Hello everybody,

Today, I am reviewing one of the products from my recent online haul from a foreign website.  I am a typical Indian girl who just dreams of that perfect blackest kajal which gives her heavy kohl rimmed eyes and stays the same. A typical fairy tale we all dream of! So in search of that Mr. Perfect kajal, we travel the 7 seas and oceans and try all possible sorts of products! In one of my similar voyages (online of course: P), I found this on sale and immediately picked it up. Did my fairy tale have a perfect ending? Read on to find out.



600 INR, but I got it at 50% off.


Now, this is interesting. Heard of kajal eyeliner which is neither twist up nor sharpenable? Yes, this kajal has a packaging which exposes the whole product so you just apply and apply and apply till it finishes off. No sharpening needed (I hate wasting kajal on sharpening). Yes one problem is that if u break this, done…over!


Product Description:

Master Kajal. Cream-stick liner.  Master the art of seductive eyes. Inner line intensity in one easy stroke.  Maybelline New York Master Kajal Khôl Liner is infused with oriental oils and concentrated in colour pigments; it has a beautiful creamy formula that glides on easily.

Directions To Use:

For Best Results: Line all around the eyes, with Maybelline New York Master Kajal Khôl Liner, including the inner line. For a bolder look, fill in bold blocks of liner.


My Experience with Maybelline Master Kajal Kohl Liner in Pitch Black:

I will first tell you guys how I adore the packaging of this product. It’s like a stick which is tapered at both ends. The shades available in this kohl are Lapis blue, oriental gold and pitch black. The whole product is in the shape of a cone and there is no need for twist up or sharpening as I told previously. Now I am kind of a girl who likes intense deep dark kohl on her waterline. There are many eyeliners in the market which are deep black and are perfect for upper lash line, but they are useless when it comes to waterline except gel liners, but even they have a problem.


It a pain to remove them really, otherwise you wake up with panda eyes. This kohl is eyeliner is nice for upper lash line but that is not something which I bought it for. I bought it for that deep black waterline, but it failed. It’s okay-ish kohl which is intense black in swatch and light black on waterline. You can build it up and make it dark, but it doesn’t stay that way. It also smudges a bit. It becomes very light after 1-2 hours. So, in the darkness department, it fails slightly. In the staying power department, it fails miserably. Only if you want to line your upper lash line and/or are floored by the packing mechanism, then you can buy this.  You can also use it for a smokey eye look, but don’t we all have enough products for the smokey eye look? Overall, a major fail as kohl, but okay as an eyeliner and smokey eye makeup product. Thumbs up for the packaging though.


Today, I am trying a new way of comparison so you can see the overall product in a much better way.


Pigmentation:- 4/5 on swatch, 3/5 on waterline
Staying power:- 2/5
Price and quantity:- 3/5
