Hello girls! I love beautiful & well-defined eyes, who doesn’t? But for achieving that perfect look, you need to have a great eyeliner. Yes, you guessed it right! This post is all about an eyeliner review and today I’m going to share the NELF Colossal Eyeliner. I received it in my March 2018 FAB BAG. Let’s get started with the NELF Colossal Eyeliner Review!
Product Name: NELF USA Colossal Eyeliner in the shade 11 Sizzling Blue.
Price & Quantity: The product is priced at Rs. 150 for 1.1 grams.
Availability: Low availability.
Packaging & Appearance: The eyeliner comes in an outer rectangle black cardboard box. The outer packaging has all the important information written on it. When you open the box, you get the NELF eyeliner pencil which is black in color and the bottom of the pencil is blue (color of the eyeliner).
The pencil cap is quite tight and when you open it, you can see the tip of the eyeliner which is more like a kajal pencil – it is not very sharp, instead it’s kind of blunt.
Smell: It has no fragrance.
Swatch: Find the swatch below:
Shelf life: 3 years from manufacture date.
Ingredients: See the ingredient list in the image below:
Claims: Contains oil for super smooth application & provides intense color in just one single stroke. Claims to be smudge proof, waterproof and long lasting for for about 16 hours. It is ophthalmologist tested.
How to use: Start from the outer corner of your eyes and move towards the inner corner. Make sure that you don’t leave gaps in between.
My Experience: My experience with NELF Colossal Eyeliner is not very good. I received this eyeliner pencil inside my March FAB BAG. When I first saw this, I thought it’s a retractable eyeliner pencil as it looked like one but it’s not! Though, you can sharpen the pencil when you need. It is more like a colored kajal than an eyeliner.
The overall packaging is good but the product is not impressive. The tip of the eyeliner pencil is quite blunt which makes it a really bad choice for winged eyeliner! But I somehow managed to create wing for the swatch thing, hehehe!
The product stays for about 2 to 3 hours after that it starts smudging. The texture is oily which is good for an even application but the oils present in it doesn’t makes it waterproof at all. It washes away easily. My favorite things about this product is that it is not tested on animals and is inexpensive.
Shade: It has 12 shades. I have shade number 11 – Sizzling Blue.
Texture: NELF Colossal Eyeliner has an oily texture.
Smudge Proof: No, it is not smudge proof.
Pigmentation: If I talk about the pigmentation, I don’t like it at all! I applied like 4-5 strokes of this product but still didn’t get that bold blue color.
Staying Power: It stays in place for about 2-3 hours.
• Travel-friendly packaging
• Not tested on animals
• Bad pigmentation
• Stays for only 2- 3 hours
• Smudges easily
• Is not waterproof
• Low availability
Jhalli Diva Verdict: I am going to rate it 1/5.
Will I Repurchase?
No, obviously not! It is a waste of money.
Do I Recommend?
No, I don’t recommend it to anyone because you can have better products in the market at this price.
Overall Summary: Overall, NELF Colossal Eyeliner is not an eyeliner pencil for me, it is more like a colored kajal that stays for only 2-3 hours and after that it smudges badly. It is not retractable and you have to sharpen the pencil from time-to-time which is a pain for me because I’m kind of lazy.
I like the fact that it is not tested on animals. The product has a very bad pigmentation and it is not waterproof. In fact, the product is not available anywhere but inside the FAB BAG. Though, it has a good travel-friendly packaging but the product is a waste of money. I don’t suggest anyone to buy this.
