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.



  1. Very pretty! And is it me, or have you not posted for millenia? Great to see a post from you again!

  2. Hii Bella! No haven't posted in a while...was busy with other things but also just didn't feel like posting anything :P

  3. Welcome back darling! You were missed. Hope there are beautiful things you feel like posting. Have a great day!

  4. That colour looks great Radhika! I have a totally unrelated question for you - I am in Bangalore right now and have seen a lot of Fab India skincare products - have you ever tried any of those? I am trying to do a big Bangalore beauty haul :D and was wondering if it was worth it to lug those Fab India products back to the States.

    1. Hii Sarah..I haven't used anything from the Fabindia skincare range, but I thinkkkk I had checked them out some time back in the store, and I wasn't too keen on trying because they didn't have a complete ingredient list...I might be wrong about it or they could have changed the labeling now. My friend has tried some toner - lavender, I think - and seems to like it quite a lot. Check out Forest Essentials - that's another natural skincare brand that seems to get some good reviews though is a bit pricey. I have tried a few products from Kama and I liked those too...Mridul face cleanser, and they have some face packs also. Most of the things I have tried are powders - mix with water and use, so they don't expire as fast and had simple ingredients.

    2. Will doooo!!! That's very helpful - Any places you recommend where I can get these products? I should send you pics of my Bangalore haul when I get back :)

  5. You absolutely must! Hehehee I would love it :D :D

    I have seen Kama Ayurveda products at Hypercity...that's a biggish store - there's one near Whitefield/Brookfield area. I haven't gone there in a while, though, so not sure. Kama Ayurveda website says the products are available at
    Bombay Store (Indranagar and at 1 MG Mall) - I have seen some products there earlier.
    Westside at Garuda Mall and Forum Mall
    Oxford Book Store at Leela Palace
    The Box, Park Hotel, MG Road
    Oberoi Spa, MG Road

    Forest Essentials has two stores in Bangalore (from their website):
    4/1, Lavelle Junction Bldg. (GF), Vittal Mallya Road Tel: +91-80-42110481
    75, Inorbit Mall, EPIP Area, Whitefield Tel:+91-80-28029635 ...this Inorbit mall also has Hypercity and Bombay Store I think...so if you are staying somewhere near the place you could check it out.
