Variants: ​There are no variants as such but different shades are available.

Claims: ​Precise application & long lasting.

How To Use: ​You can use this on your upper and lower line, however you would like to use!

My Experience: ​I love trying out different colours of liners on myself. I had seen many people using this kajal but I never bought it. Turquoise was the colour that I was looking for and I finally got my hands on it.

I really like the pigmentation. For me pigmentation has to on point to like a product and it succeeded in that. The only bummer is that it doesn’t settle to a matte finish nor it is smudge-proof, so it budges easily which reduces it’s longevity.

But you can always go ahead and set it with a translucent loose powder. Also, it doesn’t come with a sharpener but at this price we can’t expect much. I have used this to line my upper waterline but never used it for my lower one as kajal because I do not like to wear kajal. But I am definitely looking forward to try some cool looks with it!

Texture: ​The texture of the Essence Kajal pencil is very creamy and soft. It glides on smoothly without tugging. But in winters you have to warm up the product a little before using as it becomes a bit dry.

Shade: ​The shade which I have is Feel The Mari-Time. There are many other shades available and I really love it’s colour range.

Staying Power: Essence Kajal Pencil stays on for 5-6 hours. The longevity depends on everyone. As Essence Kajal Pencil is not smudge-proof so it might fade earlier from your waterline.

Pigmentation: ​The pigmentation is very good. I really like how pigmented it is in just one swipe.

Finish: ​It has a satin finish. It doesn’t settle down to be matte. So it can budge easily.
