Once exams are done, I am off to shopping and shopping means hoarding. Very recently, I was running out of kajal and that's when I thought of experimenting with a new one. My HG colossal for daily use is losing its intensity day by day. So I thought of trying the new Color Kick Kajal from Lotus Herbals. Surprisingly, the kajal is hardly advertised and I only came to know about it while flicking through my Instagram account. We all love to have a kajal that is waterproof and smudge-proof with a dash of intense black. So do you think the new Color Kick is matched up to the expectation? Let's find out.

Ingredients List:

Almond oil

Directions For Use:

Day Look: Start from the inner corner to outer corner on the waterline, glide once or twice to get a simple yet gorgeous look.
Dramatic Look: Apply a thick line on the upper lash line. Slightly wing it up. Then apply a thick line on the bottom lash line continuing till you reach the outer corner of eyes and join it with the upper winged kajal line. Apply kajal on the waterline and complete the dramatic look.
Smoky Look: Apply a thick line of kajal to the upper lash line; take an angular brush smudge the kajal in upper outward direction. Apply the thick line of kajal to the lower lash line; with the angular brush smudge it slightly in downward direction.

My Experience With Lotus Herbals Make-Up Color Kick Kajal:

Packaging: The kajal comes in a vibrant fuchsia packaging of cardboard slab. The pencil too comes in a vivid fuchsia thin cylindrical body, with a twist up retractable function and a cap. The bright travel-friendly packaging looks extremely lovely in the stash.

Shade: The kajal is a matte black color. There is a fade shine but once the kajal sits on the skin, the shine isn't there anymore. If you compare it with kajal's like Colossal, Eyeconic, and Magique, it really stands out as a winner in terms of intensity of the color.
Texture: The texture is as smooth and velvety as it can be. Be it my waterline, eyelids, upper lids or corners, the kajal glides smoothly without any kind of tugging or pulling. After application, the kohl sits firmly on the skin. If you want to create a smokey look, you have to be really fast as it turns absolutely non-smudgy after it settles on the skin.

Pigmentation: With just 2-3 swipes, the color becomes jet black on the waterline and 2 swipes for the under-eye or upper lid. With such an impressive pigmentation, the bold look can be easily created.
Smudge-proof & Waterproof: The kajal is absolutely smudge-proof and waterproof. If you take a look at the swatch, I rubbed the kohl vigorously after application but to my surprise it didn't budge an inch. It is waterproof as well. Removing the kajal gets slightly tedious because of its amazing quality but when I am getting such a quality I wouldn't dare to complain about that part.

Staying Power: There are so many products in the markets which claim high staying power but the product falls flat on the performance. Lotus Herbals claims 8-hour stay & shine and it exactly gives you that. From morning to afternoon, I wear the kajal and it stays as it was in the morning.

Considering the quality it delivers, there are absolutely no complaints about the product. If the product is compared with other competitive regular kohls like Maybelline Colossal, Lakme Eyeconic, and L'Oreal Magique, I would surely say this one is a clear winner in terms of quality. Moreover, the price I pay for this is worth every penny spent.

Pros Of Lotus Herbals Make-Up Color Kick Kajal:
  • Vibrant, travel-friendly and easy packaging.
  • Jet black kajal for waterline and eyelids.
  • Smooth texture that glides evenly.
  • Amazing pigmentation.
  • Completely smudge-proof and waterproof.
  • Staying power is exactly what it claims – 8 hours.
  • Reasonable price.

Cons Of Lotus Herbals Make-Up Color Kick Kajal:
  • Not widely available.
  • Complete ingredients list is missing.

Final Note:

I was personally a fan of Colossal Kajal until I got my hands on this beauty. I can't think of any better kajal for my regular wear than this. I'm surprised how the product was not advertised much! I heard that this kajal was launched around 6 months back and I just happened to come across it by chance. Well, I am glad I did. For all the girls who want a perfect kajal, this is the best deal you can get.
