 Maybelline Colossal Kajal

Here is my experience with Maybelline New York Colossal Kajal and its claim of 12 Hr Smudge Proof and the Big Question – Does it Break Off ? Read on to know more!

Let’s begin!

 Maybelline New York Colossal Kajal Review

Appearance – The Colossal Kajal comes in an attractive yellow and black package( reminds me of taxi!) It is a sleek yellow pencil with a cap on and a twister to adjust the Kajal.


Shelf Life – 24 Months! That’s well and good for a cosmetic. I personally feel 6 months are enough.

Ingredients  – Ingredient list is missing. I would really want to know what goes in making of my kajal it as eyes are sensitive part.

Patanjali Herbal Kajal has ingredients mentioned on the package.

Price and Quantity – It’s of INR 199, but due to special offer I got it for INR 175 for 0.35 gm. Yay!

Maybelline New York Colossal Kajal Swatch – In the images. I love the rich black color it imparts.

Claims – Maybelline claims the colossal kajal to be:

* Smudge Proof
* Deepest Black Color
* Suitable for contact lens wearers

Fake Kajal Alert – Alert! Fake Maybelline New York Colossal Kajal is also available in market. It is this fake Kajal which breaks off as well as smudges and causes irritation. Do check twice before purchasing.


Another reason is that the product may be expiry. So do check carefully and buy from trusted stores only.

My Experience – Without going in much depth, in a single line – I love it! Kajal is one of my favourite beauty products.

Coming back to the review, I liked the black color.  It’s quite suitable for all skin tone, that’s the trait of black. The stick doesn’t break.

The kajal is well and good for 4 to 5 hours. But then it starts disappearing on the waterline. On the top, it does last for upto 7 hours. Whereas on oily lids, the time is reasonably cut off.

Also, it’s small and light which makes it easy to carry around. So, it is travel friendly. One swipe works well and you are perfectly college ready.
