REVIEW: Maybelline Colossal Kajal in Super Black

Review of Maybelline Colossal Kajal in Super Black

My mind is blank! I have been sitting, staring at my laptop screen for the last 35 minutes and I cannot come up with something to start my review... Wow! Do bloggers get writer's block too? OMG that sounds so obnoxious... I am no writer... But I swear I am blocked!

I'll be back in 5 with a cup of green tea...
*scurries to the kitchen*

Am back!

So... Today I plan to review the new (not so much now) Maybelline Colossal Kajal in Super Black... I have been trying it out for the past 3 weeks and have been wearing it non-stop since week now... So much so that many of you all have been snap chatting me asking me about the kajal I have been using and I realised that this would be the perfect time to review it.

Does it live up to its claims? Is it better than the original Colossal Kajal? Does it smudge? Does it actually stay on for 16 hours? These are the few questions that people have been asking me and I intend to answer each and every one of them :)

It costs INR 300/-

Maybelline Colossal Kajal Super Black comes in a black packaging with yellow lettering which is the opposite to that of the orginal colossal kajal. I like the new packaging better as it looks a little more grown-up :)
As far as the blackness and pigmentation is concerned, I will say that it is different from the original one... Is it blacker? I don't think so! But the shade of black in Super Black is a bluish black while the original colossal kajal is a flat black.

The bluish black of the Super Black Colossal Kajal makes it look more intense when applied on the eyes and hence probably the name Super Black... As far as pigmentation goes, it's single swipe is more pigmented and texture wise it is creamier.

Does it smudge? No
Is it Waterproof? Yes and thankfully not water resistant.
Does it stay on for 16 hours? Yes! I have not tested it for 16 hours but I can vouch for 11 hours :)

Another plus point of the kajal is that it has been tested to be safe on the waterline for sensitive eyes and for contact lens wearers...
So far so good. However, I have one issue with this kajal that is it tends to melt a little in the heat... Hence when I am out in the sun, the kajal applied on the eyes gets a little liquid-y and I have seen it run a little on a few occasions... Apart from this it is a great drugstore kajal and I would recommend it.

Overall Rating:

Texture and pigmentation wise I like this new Super Black kajal more than the original Colossal kajal and hence I recommend it whole-heartedly...

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018 Denim is forever. It's versatility makes it a classic and in the form of a jacket it not just looks dapper and en vogue but is also comfortable and convenient... I love denim jackets because they are perfect for Pune's so called Winters and because they are the best accessories for any kind of outfit...

Going through some of the Fall Winter 2017-18 collections from the likes of Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Stella McCartney, denim on denim seemed to be the trend in boxy and boyish silhouettes. I am not a very big fan of denim and denim and hence I prefer to pair my boxy denim jacket with a flowy, floral dress that makes the look strike a balance between feminine and androgynous.
