Maybelline Colossal Kohl – Smoked Silver Review

Hello Everyone,

Today I have yet another colored eye pencil to share with you but this time it is not the usual green or blue but silver from the newly launched Maybelline Colossal Kohl colored collection. I have been looking for a nice silver liner but the options are so limited but finally was happy to see this silver shade in Maybelline, Maybelline Colossal Kohl – Smoked Silver.

Maybelline Colossal Kohl Smoked Silver Look

Product Claims: Maybelline Colossal Kohl Kajal enhances the appearance of your eyes.

  • Infused with nourishing ingredients and vitamin E this kajal gives soothing effect to your eyes.
  • Smooth texture of this kajal glides effortlessly onto eyes.
  • Color stays for minimum 12 hours without fading.
  • It features a unique tip which makes application easy and comfortable

Price:- Rs. 249 for .35 gms

Shelf Life:- 3 years from the Mfg date.

Packaging:- Maybelline Colossal Kohl comes in a twist up mechanical pencil type packaging in the signature yellow color. So, there is no need of sharpening or product wastage. There is a colored band on the pencil to indentify the shade but a fully colored outer body would have been much better as sometimes I miss between this and black one if I don’t look at the color band.

Maybelline Colossal Kohl Smoked Silver Packaging

My experience with Maybelline Colossal Kohl Smoked Silver:-

Shade: Smoked Silver is a medium gray shade with slight silver pearly sheen. The shade is no where close to shimmery silver that I was looking for but it can be option to break the monotony of creamy black liner. If you dont want that stark black liner then this gray aka smoked silver could be a great pick.

Formula: The kohl has a creamy smooth texture which is slightly slippery compared to the Maybelline Colossal Kohl Black. It does apply smoothly without any tugging or pulling.

Pigmentation: Surprisingly, the liner lacks pigmentation and it takes time to show up on lids. I have to swipe it 2-3 times to get a decent color on lids. On waterline, it gives just hint of gray. I would rather use it on lower lash line for a smoked out effect

Staying Power: The kohl has a decent staying power and it lasts as long as 6-7 hours on me but it does start smudging quite early. I can see slight transfer to the lids area in 2-3 hours of application but being a gray shade it isn’t as prominent as any black one. The kohl will last long if you mattify eyes before application with a compact so that oil from the lids doesn’t come in contact with liner causing it to smudge.

Pros of Maybelline Colossal Kohl Smoked Silver:-

  1. Creamy texture
  2. Applies smoothly
  3. Easy on pocket
  4. Lasts 6-7 hours but with little smudging
  5. Colored band for identification
  6. Can be paired with black for smokey eye looks
  7. Convenient to use packaging
  8. Available in 3 colorful shades

Cons of Maybelline Colossal Kohl Smoked Silver:-

  1. Needs at least 3-4 swipes to show up
  2. Transfers on oily lids
  3. Doesn’t show well on waterline

Recommendation:- Maybelline Colossal Kohl Smoked Silver is a nice gray colored liner with creamy smooth texture that glides easily on lids. The formula takes 2-3 swipes to give a rich color on lids but it wore well for 6-7 hours with slight transfer. It can be used with black eye shadow for a smokey look as it not 100% smudge-proof. The color might suit girls with heavy dark circles as gray can make them look grave and prominent. Otherwise a nice shade to try if you are bored of intense blacks.

    Wow! What an EOTD girl! U rock winged liners like anything. I saw these ones but loved the jade and emerald ones more. They are beautifully pigmented indeed.

      Thanks a tonn Tarryy.. <3 <3 !!

      I fall back for winged liners as nothing else seems to work for me… I guess jade and emerald would be better because this gray needs some additional effort to show up! 🙂

    Loved the final look, but if it requires so much hard work in getting this look I might skip it 🙂

      thanks Shailja but the pigmentation wasnt impressive wish it had better formula becz it just fails as a kohl though for a soft silver -gray liner it shows up in 2-3 swipes.

    Pretty EOTD Poo. The shade looks good on you but silver does not suit me much.. i prefer blues & greens..

    • poonamApril 16, 2015 at 10:02 AM - Reply

      Thanks Harina.. yeah greys doesnt look that flattering on warm skintones.. Blues n green ar a perfect pick for sure.. even i love them over silver/greys but u know when u need a break you tend to venture in a diff world 😀
