Hey everyone!

I’m reviewing the newly (re)launched Maybelline Colossal Kajal– it now claims to stay for upto 12 hours. I have reviewed the earlier variant HERE. Read on to know my take on this new variant!

About Maybelline Colossal kajal: The deepest black Kajal, creates bold lines & is smudge free for up to 12 hours. Colossal Intensity + Colossal Wear for Colossal Striking Eyes.

Price: Rs. 175

Packaging: The packaging is almost the same as the earlier one- a simple yellow and black cardboard pack, with the kajal pencil in a plastic cover. The product packaging is also the same- a bright canary yellow twist-up tube with a cap. The good thing here is that the pencil is retractable, so you can always see how much of product is there inside, and if you take out extra product, you can put it back in!

My take on Maybelline Colossal kajal: I have used the earlier version of the Maybelline Colossal kajal too, and quite liked it. This new formula seems a tad bit darker than the original one, and a little more creamy too. It is a dark black shade, highly pigmented, glides on easily without any pulling/ tugging, and the best part is that it stays! On my oily lids, the staying power is a good 6+ hours which is good for me, and on the lower lash line, it stays for about 8 hours on me. After this time it starts to fade, but doesn;t disappear. The kajal is definitely water-proof, and upto some extent, smudge proof too!

Now, the 12 hours claim isn’t exactly true for me, but then I have very oily lids too! So I can give it to Colossal for staying even for 6-8 hours on me!

It doesn’t sting or irritate the eyes one bit, so it is safe for eyes. To remove it completely, you definitely need to use a dual-makeup remover.

Pros of Maybelline Colossal kajal:

  • Intense black color, highly pigmented
  • Applies easily since the texture is a little creamy
  • Stays for a good 6+ hours as an eyeliner on my oily lids
  • As a kohl, stays for 8+ hours
  • Affordably priced
  • Easy to use product- just swivel and apply
  • No need to sharpen every time before use

Cons of Maybelline Colossal kajal: 

  • Ingredients list?
  • Does not stay on me for 12 hours

Verdict: Highly recommended kohl plus eyeliner,e specially for those with oily lids. No other kajal stays on me the way maybelline Colossal does!
