|Wearing Maybelline Colossal Kajal in Turquoise|
Most Indian girls consider kohl - or kajal - a makeup must-have, and there are quite a lot of options for black eyeliner in the Indian market. Maybelline's Colossal Kajal is one such truly black liner, and buoyed perhaps by the success of the black liner, Maybelline India recently launched a colored version of the same - Colossal Kajal in Turquoise. I got my hands on one of these, thanks to the folks at Maybelline India, and here's a look at how this fares with my testing :P

The product packaging is pretty much the same as the black/regular Maybelline Colossal Kajal - a bright cheery yellow pencil with turquoise-colored writing and design to help differentiate between the black and the colored liner. This is a twist-up pencil, and the tip stays relatively thin without any need for sharpening between uses.
True to the name, Maybelline Colossal Kajal in Turquoise is a bright blue-green with a bit of a sheen to it. The pencil is quite pigmented and soft, so it's easy to apply color even on the waterline. As for claims of lasting 12 hours without smudging, the color does stay on without smudging or fading through the day, and I definitely need a good makeup remover to take it off completely. I have sensitive eyes that water up at the slightest excuse, so this liner gets major points for the lasting power, plus it doesn't irritate my eyes either.

Since this is a brighter color, I prefer applying it along the waterline. Paired with black eyeliner - tightlining and along the lashline - as well as black mascara, Maybelline Colossal Kohl in Turquoise is the easiest way to add a pop of color into my everyday makeup. Do give this a try if you love colored eyeliners and/or are looking for a quick update to your makeup routine.
