My Review of Maybelline Colossal Super Black Kajal:
I don’t experiment much with my kajals and I stick to the one which works best for me. Currently i am using FACES MAGNETEYES KAJAL which is my favourite till now. I have used the Maybelline COLOSSAL KAJAL 12hr previously and wasn’t much impressed with it. So, this time when they launched a new version, i thought of giving the Maybelline kohl another try.
Talking about the packaging, it comes in a normal retractable twist up pencil form. The colour scheme of this COLOSSAL SUPER BLACK is completely opposite to the COLOSSAL one. It comes in a black tube pen with yellow detailing. I liked the new packaging.
It contains 0.35 g of product which is the same as the previous one. The pricing this time is a bit on the higher side as it costs Rs.300 whereas the normal colossal is for Rs.175. I don’t really get the point of increasing the price to such an extent for a kajal because at this price we can get so many other options. Do read this top 10 kajals in India post if you want to know what I am talking about.
Now, lets talk about the super black Kajal. When i first swatched it on my hands, i was surprised with its creamy texture and intense black colour. It is very soft and smooth on application. Talking about the 2X Black colour, yes it is much black in colour than the older colossal and other kajals in the market. There were some issues with the older 12hr colossal kajal when i used it but those are solved with this SUPER BLACK one from maybelline.
It doesn’t tug and break on application which is a big thumbs up for me. On one swipe it doesn’t give that 2X Black colour but on 2-3 application it is a Super black intense colour with matte finish which i am loving. It is a waterproof and smudge proof kajal. I apply the maybelline kohl in the morning and even by evening it doesn’t smudge at all which is again a great thing. After two hours of application, it was intact on my waterline and eyelid. After four hours i noticed a bit of fading from my waterline but it was still intact on my eyelid. So, it doesn’t stay for 16 hours as per its claim but it has a good staying power. Its stays for a good 6 hours on my waterline and 8 hours on my eyelid.
When i washed my face with water, the super black kohl still didn’t budge. So i used some baby oil to remove it. It is upto the mark for its waterproof and smudge proof claim. If it had stayed on for a few hours more on my waterline then it would have been the best kajal in India ever.
The only issue i find apart from staying power is the price. If they had increased 25-50 rupees for the 2X Black thing it would have been fine but an increase of 125 rupees is too much because the quality is almost the same as the normal colossal kajal. It is not the most affordable kajal in the market and girls might skip it seeing its price tag.
It is overall a good water proof and smudge proof kajal in my opinion and i can use it on alternate basis with my faces magnet eyes kohl.
