Maybelline recently re-launched their notorious colossal kajal with a promising 12H wear claim. The packaging is same as the older version- a sleek yellow twist up retractable plastic pencil with cap. I love simple & easy to locate packaging of the product.
I never used their previous formula so not sure how better is the newer version but love the formula overall. It has got a creamy easy to glide texture sans being buttery so that it does not crumble during application. I have extremely watery eyes & most of the kajals and eyeliners fail to flare more an hour or so on me but surprisingly this one stays put for easily 4 hours on my waterline before starting to fade and on my dry lids it gives a solid 10 hours wear before starting to subside. The formula never stings or irritates my eyes & I love to use this to tight lining also. It sets in quite fast & does not budge anytime during wear. It gives a deep black pigment with a single stroke but not the blackest of the kohl I have used. The older formula is blacker. Overall it’s a great budget pick with excellent performing formula.
