Beauty Poll: Kohl Konnection – Favorite Kohl / Kajal 

When I look around for a good drugstore Kohl that is easy on pocket too, I can think of these retractable pencil packed KOhls only. Maybelline re-launched Colosaal Kajal in 12hr Smudge-Proof formula, Lakme Eyeconic Kohl and the newest in the bandwagon is L’Oreal Paris Magique Kohl. L’Oreal have become a little late but better late than never.. ;). Also I am also looking forward for some similar launhes from Revlon, Colorbar hoping the formula will be smoother, creamier and pigmented with a decent price tag!

So, Today I have come up with an Opinion Poll to vote for your favorite Kohl/Kajal.

Makeup Poll - Favorite Kohl- Kajal

My favorite Kohl till date has been Bourjois Kohl and Contour Eye Pencil Noir Expert which I have been using for more than a year now and still it doesn’t show any signs of getting over soon. It comes in a sharpenable pencil form and I just love the way it shows up on my eyes super – intense rich black. The major drawback is that it can smudge easily due it creamier formula, so many of wouldn’t like it at all. I like it but dead bored of using the same Kohl and want to move over this to try rest of the options available.. 😉

Its Over – Bourjois Noir Black. 😛 😛

Don’t Miss to checkout:

I have the much raved about Lakme Absolut Kohl and MAC Feline Pencil in my list but they are a little over budget for now so have to wait till they come under discounts or some angel decides to sell them off at steal away price tag! 😉

The market got flooded with kohls lately but I am still struggling to find one rich dark black Kohl that shows up on waterline and smudge proof formula is highly desirable. L’Oreal Magique looks like a great option but not sure if it will show up on waterline!

L'Oreal Magique Kohl

So, Bellas help me to find a Kohl for me. Pour in your suggestions for the richest, darkest balck Kohl you have come across or you want to own. I would love to know about Your favorite Kohl and the one would you like to try next can be a drugstore/luxury!

    I have used almost all the kohls in the list and loved the lakme absolute one but since its expensive I have switched to eyeconic kajal.

    Lakme Absolute is jet matte black but Lakme Eyeconic gives us a feel of wearing the homemade kajal that we apply for babies or the age old eyetex kajal which has a shining effect to it….which I love ..

      Lakme Absolute Matte is winning .. may be its time to give it a shot!!
      Yeahh exactly Eyeconic has this thick creamy texture which doesnt feel good..
      hheheh.. home made kajal would haave been an inexpensive substitute.. 😉
      U use that kajal still?? I remeber that round metallic pot filled with kajal.. 😀

    I love love love the Amway Kajal! It is smooth and beautifully black and it lasts really long! Currently testing out the Lakme Absolute and it is quite good too.

    Amongst those listed, I have tried Maybelline colossal (the earlier version), but it did tug alot n I wasn’t much happy. Then tried Lakme Eyeconic and it was pretty good. but the blackest I have seen so far is the Avon one, which has a smudger too, perfect for quick smokey eyes too. It smudges, but not much..
    Now eveying, Kryolan gel eyeliner pencils, just gotts check if that can be used on waterline too..;)

    • poonamJanuary 20, 2014 at 11:09 PM - Reply

      Maybelline colossal didnt worked for me too.. lakme was okay too bt not freat as Kohl..
      AVON kohll.. sounds so good.. now I am looking for AVON reps in delhi, who can get me the stuff!!
      havent tried krylon eye pnecils.. they are great as liners but nt sure on watreline.. 🙂

      Thanks for your recco dear.. 🙂

    Heard a lot about Estee Lauder, usually their products are of very good quality but cant ignore the steep price tag. Among drugstore ones, I have used only 2 and liked the Maybelline Colossal.

    • poonamJanuary 21, 2014 at 9:45 PM - Reply

      yeahhh.. the steep price tag held me back.. i wanna try EL for so long!!!
      Okkk.. gonna try Maybeeline Newly launched coloosal too.. 🙂
