Product Review - Maybelline Colossal Kajal


Maybelline Colossal Kajal

   Though the Maybelline Colossal Kajal was launched more than three and a half years ago, reviewing it today as it is the one product which I have been using religiously for more than a year and has become my absolute personal favorite, a definite 'Product Of The Year' for me!

   Product Claims: Enriched with Olive Oil Esters, Vitamin E, Vitamin C Derivatives and Conditioning agents, Colossal Kajal has our deepest black pigments, a unique tip and an exclusive color fix formula which gives you smooth, intense color that stays on for up to 12 hours. The Colossal Kajal is ophthalmologically tested and is suitable for contact lens wearers. 
   Maybelline’s Colossal Kajal not only beautifies your eyes, but soothes and nourishes them as well.

   The Maybelline Colossal Kajal was one of the first cosmetic product that I came across and now after using it on multiple occasions have fallen completely head over heels in love with it! The sleek packaging makes it easy to carry it around. Love how it glides smoothly over my eyelids providing good pigmentation in a stroke or two. Also the fact that it stays right in place without smudging or fading for hours on my eyes and makes my eyes look bigger and more attractive, without creating a big hole in my pocket!
