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 :)

Price of Maybelline Colossal Kajal Super Black

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:
9/10

Recommendation:
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…

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener 

Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work...

Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!

REVIEW: MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation In NC42

Review of MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation In Shade NC42

Guest Post By: Rmyah

There are days when I just cannot help look at myself through any reflective surface that I can. Be it mirrors, glass doors, rear view mirrors, the back of a spoon and even a pond. And then there are days when I wished everyone was blind, every mirror shattered, the serene water turbulent, anything to avoid me seeing my face. One such day when my skin was going through a blearrrgh phase I decided to put my face on the web and show you how I deal with it. My savior is the MAC studio fix fluid foundation which has been my HG foundation for about three months now.
