My Experience With Maybelline Colossal Kohl Jeweled Jade:
Packaging: The kajal comes in its signature style twist-up retractable pencil in yellow color. New features have been added to the stick in the new range like color coded band and name of the shade at the bottom of the stick. I have two more Maybelline colossal pencils so this color coding really helps me in identifying the color. As it is non-sharpenable in form, there is no product wastage and saves a lot of time in this busy world.
Shade: The shade is the prettiest peacock teal blue color. It has a soft sheen which is barely visible. I love the color and the whole drama that it gives to my face. Seriously I was very bored with my other black kajal. So I wanted a shade which is not too bold yet dramatic. If you are someone who wants to experiment with colors yet want the muted look, this is the shade for you. It is not a color which is loud.
Texture: The texture is smooth but not super creamy. As it claims, it glides effortlessly and smoothly without tugging or pulling. It doesn't create a messy finish or messy dry clumps in the application.
Pigmentation: It's a nicely pigmented kajal. In 2-3 swipes, you get the desired intensity and opacity. The color shows up on the eyes pretty well. It's buildable as well. The more you swipe the kajal, more perfect color you will achieve. And in doing so, you will not get a clumpy finish.
Staying Power: The staying power takes all the brownie points. It stayed on me for exact 9 hours. After 9 hours I washed it off but I am sure it has the capability of staying for 12 hours with little fading. So its 12-hour claim is true to some extent. On the waterline, it started to fade only after 3 hours. I am very impressed with this kajal because no kajal has ever stayed on my lower lash line for more than 2 hours, no matter how much smudge proof or water resistant the kajal is, my lower lash line just cannot hold the kajal and it bleeds profusely. But this kajal has swept me off my feet literally. To test it claims of 12-hour stay, I wore it to my gym. Yes! Even the gym members might be wondering why have I come with those dramatic eyes but I had to test the kajal because if the kajal can survive the gym workout session, then it will definitely survive the sun outside. So after I came back home I was amazed to see that the kajal has not budged even a little. Trust me you guys, it didn't move even a bit and it was right there shining brightly as ever. From that point, I knew it has to be my HG kajal.
