Today I’m reviewing a very basic and integral part of our daily makeup routine – kajal pencil. I’ve spent nearly 10 years of my life, since college, in indentifying the kajal that suits me, doesn’t smudge or just vanishes in a while. In the quest of finding the right kajal, I have tried at least 10 brands and haven’t really been satisfied with any.
I recently bought Colorbar’s Just Smoky Kajal (Just Black 001), and have fallen in love with it. It comes with a soft spongy smudger at the other end of the pencil.
Brand Claims: It is a long-lasting, multi-tasking eye pencil. It is a 3-in-1 pencil, which serves as an Eyeliner, Kajal and an Eye Shadow. It comes with a built-in soft smudger for a smoky eye look.
Price: INR 650
Qty: 1.2 gms
Packaging: The pencil comes in an outer cardboard box, which mentions the ingredients. The pencil inside is a black sharpenable pencil with caps on both ends, one for the pencil and the other for the smudger.
This is the most favorite part of my makeup kit. It is creamy matte jet black shade. The pencil glides like butter, on the waterline and lash line alike. It gives a dark, prominent and velvety appearance. I have very shaky hands when it comes to applying an eye liner, but this pencil is so smooth, it makes the task seem so effortless, with no trouble to the eyelids.
The brand claims that it stays the whole day and I have found this to be true. I’m used to rubbing my eyes without thinking about my eye makeup…and this product has been quite handy that ways 🙂 no touch up required during the day. And yes, it’s waterproof..yayyy! 🙂
The smudger at the back is amazing too. A slight smudging of the liner with the cushion sponge provided in the pencil gives subtle expert-like smoky eyes.
A very helpful product for makeup amateurs 😉
