Marcelle Kajal Kohl Eyeliner in Blackest Black - Review and Swatch

Since I am of an East Indian origin, I love kajal eyeliners and any East Indian girl could relate with me. I don't even remember since when have I been using kajals?..may be it was since birth (not sure though :P). There is also a tradition of making homemade kajals (with all the good ingredients) for young girls in my household. Although it has been discontinued by the "modern" mommys - the love for kajal is still quite prevalent. There are days, when the only makeup I wear is kajal on the rims of my eyes. Hope I have clearly indicated my love/obsession with kohl eye liners and kajals. Marcelle's Kajal Kohl Eyeliner in Blackest Black reminded me of the kajal I used in my home country from a herbalist. Its really that intensely black! I love matte black kajals and I am so happy to share this affordable kajal with you all.




SWATCH



As you can see from the swach above, it is an intense matte black kajal which truly lives to the name - Blackest Black. It says on the website, that it contains antioxidants, is water proof and  is proven to last at least 6 hours. For me it lasts the whole day. I do notice some smudging if I line the lower rim of my eyes.. and it is kinda acceptable because if I wear any kajal for the whole day, it does tend to smudge (i.e. if it really is kajal!) So overall, I do not have any issues with the application or the lasting power. Its totally a fool proof amazing product and its only $11.95!

The only issues I have are that it is so small!! The pencil is just about the size of my palm so it finishes pretty fast for me. Fortunately, I have a chubby stick sharpener, so it fits right in, otherwise, you would have to especially purchase a sharpener for this eyeliner. Marcelle does sell the sharpener for this for about $3, I suppose. Other than that, its fantastic. I never had any reaction using this. I would say, if you are looking for a kajal, or are generally a kajal lover, go for this one!!

Hope you enjoyed finding about this product. Keep me posted about your thoughts!!
