My Views On Maybelline Colossal Kajal

The Colossal Kajal from Maybelline comes in a bright yellow packaging. The kajal comes in a bright yellow twist up pack. The kajal is super slim and cute - it can easily fit into your long purse or handbag ;)

The Maybelline Colossal Kajal is soft, smooth and creamy. It has a unique sharp tip that is super convenient to line your eyes however it loses shape after 2,3 times of usage. It is super soft & slim that the kajal breaks easily even if a little pressure is applied while applying it. This is one thing I totally hate hate because so far I have broke 3 colossal kajals :( They tend to break every single time when I put in a little extra effort to get that flawless look!

As it's creamy the kajal glides on super smooth giving a nice matte lining. It's easy to apply both on upper lashline and on waterline. The kajal sets to a nice matte finish within seconds of application. The kajal is super black pigmented however you need to layer it 2-3 times to get that jet black look in your eyes :)

The Maybelline Colossal Kajal has good staying power and stays put on my waterline for almost 10 hours easily! It doesn't smudge or budge unless I rub my eyes :P But I have super oily lids and the kajal doesn't stay smudge-free on my lids for more than 3-4 hours max. When I prep my lids with a primer\powder it lasts a little longer but not much!

The kajal doesn't sting or irritate my eyes or when used on waterline. It has a light feel and doesn't feel heavy on lids. However you will need a good cream or oil based makeup remover to remove it thoroughly.
