The Loreal Kajal Magique claims to be "darker than night" and that is "supremely" black and claims to last 12 hours and that it is smudge proof,waterproof and non-transferable.
(Read The Press Release Here
But Does It Stand upto the claims?
Is it worth the Rs.245/- you shell out?
Does it last the 12 hour claim?
Can it replace your trusted Lakme Eyeconic/Maybelline Colossol/Colorbar Kajal?
I am not saying that it is an altogether horrible product, but I have to say that it does not stand upto the claims. It is NOT supremely black at just one swipe,it maybe "somewhat" black after 3-4 swipes and it is NOT darker than midnight,it may be smoky as a factory exhaust.
|Please excuse the eyebrows,I am growing it out to get reshaped!!!
The above picture is taken without flash after 3-4 swipes.Notice how it looks rather smokey and hazy.
Here is another photo taken with flash after two additional swipes.
Now Here Is My Final Verdict:
- The kajal does have a great packaging and a great texture, but the payoff is just not as great as you would expect it to be.
- Also, it does not stand the 12 hour claim and may last up to a maximum of 4-5 hours.
- It is pretty smudge free, and does not give you raccoon eyes no matter how many times you swipe it again and again on top,but after 2-3 hours of wear,it leads to accumulation at the corners that may look unpleasant.
Final Answer to the question: Can it replace your favorite kajal?
Not for me.
I am still depending on my favorite Lakme Eyeconic to sport with my everyday college makeup.
My next post will probably be about my everyday college makeup!!
Thats all for now!!
