 Doubts Discussion: Best Long Lasting Kajal/ Kohl in India

From Reetu,

Can you recommend any long staying Kajal/Kohl.

Long Lasting Kohl Kajal In India

If there is one thing in Makeup world that everybody is on the lookout for, no matter what’s the age and makeup interests are is to find a long lasting smudge–proof Kajal/Kohl. I have tried almost the entire drugstore Kohls but still couldn’t find one that last for more than 5 hours on me.  There is always a trade off between staying power and pigmentation, some are slightly much better than the rest. Let’s have a quick look over the one’s tried and tested.

Best Long Lasting Kajal/ Kohl in India:

  1.  Maybelline Colossal Kajal (6hr)The formula wasn’t richly pigmented and it barely showed up on my waterline.
  2. Lakme Eyeconic Kajal: It was slightly better than the Maybelline (6hr) Kajal but it felt a little sticky when applied on waterline and also it fades quickly when applied as kohl
  3. Bourjois Kohl and Contour Eye Pencil – Noir Expert: It is on be of the most richly pigmented kohl, intense black and buttery smooth formula and shows up well on waterline but it smudges easily due to the creaminess
  4. Colorbar Eye Pencil: It was worst Kohl Formula I have tried ever, rock solid texture which doesn’t give a decent black color even after multiple swipes
  5. Faces Canada Kohl: This one has creamy texture which gets applied smoothly but the pigmentation wasn’t great enough and also it faded pretty fast.
  6. Hashmi Kohl/KajalStick: This one cheapest of all the Kohl’s I have tried. It is not the deepest black Kohl/kajal but it last easily for 4 hours on me and it is almost smudge-proof.
  7. Maybelline Colossal Kajal – 12hr Formula: This is the recent addition to my Kohl Komapy.. 😉 . The formula is  better than the 6hr formula, smooth, creamy and well pigmented. Out of all I have tried this one stayed longest on me.
  8. Maybelline Gel Eye Liner – Black: This gel eye liner can be doubled as Kohl, I have seen many girls using it on waterline. The creamy texture goes on smoothly and long lasting formula refuses to budge for long. It

    I love the Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate. I think that works best for me. I haven’t tries any of the luxury brands so no comment there. But this lasts about 4-5 hours in my waterline. Then again, I don’t mind reapplying it after that.

    Lakme Khol Ultimate is a great khol, doesn’t smudge.. but the main drawback is removing it completely- I personally have a tough time with it. Maybelline gel liner is another super duper product as khol but applying with a brush every time can be a little tough.. The Lakme eyeconic is a budget friendly good option.

      Hey Harine.. I know what r u talking about.. the kajal traces on eyes it to get off them completely!!

      I have never dared try it as kohl. bcz of that brush thing.. 😛
