My Experience With Blue Heaven Artisto Kajal:
Packaging: The kajal has a gorgeous packaging which is very similar to Lakme Gel Addict Eyeliner. It comes in a round plastic pot with a long screw cap. The screw cap has the little applicator brush attached. Overall, the packaging is lightweight and sturdy. It is extremely travel-friendly as it comes with an applicator brush.
Applicator: The brush is small and slightly flat with a tapered end. It is good for precise application and gives a nice hold while drawing the line. It is good for medium to thick lines but very fines lines need steady hands. You can easily draw any regular cat or wing eyeliner too. It doesn't shed after washing.
Shade: It is a nice, rich black to enhance the eyes. It looks elegant as a kajal, both on upper and lower lash line. There is a very nice sheen to the kajal and the intensity of the kohl is impressive.
Texture: The texture is creamy but lesser than any gel eyeliner. It has the smell of camphor and there is a slight cooling sensation when you apply the kajal but it doesn't last long. The texture is so smooth that you can use it as a base for smoky eyes and it helps in adhering the eyeshadow well. It doesn't tug, pull or irritate the eyes and can be used on the water line.
Formula: The kajal doesn't settle down matte but has a sheen or glossy finish and is also very creamy. To some extent, it works for its advantage. It takes a long time to settle and thus it is not smudge proof at all. It smudges easily and by any chance, if you rub the eyes, chances are that you will end up as raccoon eyes. However, it is completely waterproof and requires oil to remove it.
Pigmentation: The pigmentation is good. It takes two proper swipes to get the rich and intense jet black color on the lids. For the watery lash line like mine, it takes 3 swipes to get the rich color.
Staying Power: The staying power is around 1-2 hours on water line which is extremely disappointing. It smudges very badly on the water line and is best used on eyelids and as a liner. As a liner, it stays around 5-6 hours easily and then starts smudging or fading.
Pros Of Blue Heaven Artisto Kajal:

Diva Likes Rating:
This one is better used a gel liner than a kajal. So, if you are looking for a nice budget friendly, waterproof gel liner as a beginner, then I would highly recommend this one for its rich color and beautiful packaging.
