Hello beauties! I have big dark circles around my eyes and if I don't apply kajal, I look like a patient. So, kohl is as important as water to me. As a college student, I always try to look for economical kohl that I can use every day. Also the product should be easy to carry and last longer. With array of brands and varieties of kajal's coming up in the market, it's very difficult to choose one. Nevertheless, I zeroed in this much raved Maybelline Colossal Kajal 12 HR. Read on to know my take on this.

My Experience With Maybelline Colossal Kajal 12H:

Maybelline Colossal Kajal is much raved kohl because of its quality and pricing. It comes in a yellow plastic retractable pencil with a cap that shuts with a click. The packaging is very convenient and travel friendly as it doesn't require a sharpener. Hence there is no product wastage at all. Though many people prefer sharpening ones as it keeps away the bacteria but a daily use product like this is better when retractable.

Coming to its texture, it is matte yet slightly creamy which glides over the waterline and lids smoothly without causing much tugging or pulling. The shade of this kohl is dark black with no hint of shimmers. But I wouldn't call the color pitch black. The pigmentation is very good as two swipes are enough to give you opaque coverage. The kohl doesn't sting eyes if applied heavily on the waterline. The staying power is not what it claims i.e. 12 hours but it stays on my eyes for about 7-8 hours with slight smudging which is negligible. On waterline it stays for only 3 hours. The price is reasonable though Maybelline has increased the price from the 6H claim Kajal to this one. Overall, this one is a perfect kajal for daily use.

Pros Of Maybelline Colossal Kajal 12H:
  • Easy retractable pencil.
  • Travel friendly packaging.
  • Creamy texture.
  • Glides smoothly over the lids.
  • Doesn't sting the eyes when applied on the waterline.
  • Dark black in color with no shimmers.
  • Gives good pigmentation with just two swipes.
  • Good staying power for 7-8 hours.

Cons Of Maybelline Colossal Kajal 12H:
  • False claim of 12 hours.
  • It does smudge a little.

Final Note:

I know there are varieties of kajal in the market but colossal turns out to be a winner because of its price range and effective quality. I have been using this kajal for the past few months for my college and I am actually happy with the way it brightens up my eyes. This product definitely deserves to be in the stash of every makeup addict. Do give it a try if you haven't done it yet.
