Gold, a color that complements the Indian Complexion beautifully and can be worn to most occasions and any time of the day. This is a part of the Loreal Cannes Collection 2014 launched few months back.
The Color: A antique gold with bronze undertones.
The lasting: Lasted for five hours on my primed eye lids. I would advise to apply it over primed eye lids, else the color would not show up well. I wish it were more yellow , to show up on olive skins.
The Pigmentation: It is decently pigmented, could have been better though.
The texture: The pencil is quite stiff and it not so soft, which makes it break resistant. The stiff texture makes the application little tough, so it requires patience and time to show better results. This might be because it has a gel like texture and hence could not be made more soft like other pencils.
The packaging: Impeccable! It comes with a sharpener at the back, in a twist up form.
Summary: A decent eye pencil. It is not so soft and hence would not break easily unless tough pressure is applied. The pigmentation and lasting could have been better.
Price: INR 425
Product Score: 3.5/5

I received this about ten days back, but sorry for being late in posting, owing to health issues. This is the latest offering from Maybelline, which is famous for its innovative new launches in the beauty bazaar 🙂 and is no less pretty than the original colossal kajal. The color is striking yet wearable with exquisite quality and performance.
The Look : A pure turquoise blue colored kajal, that makes the eyes look dreamy and beautiful.
The Pigmentation, Lasting and texture: It has a very soft texture and glides smoothly without being harsh on the lids and the pigmentation is noteworthy, and goes fully opaque in about two swipes. It needs to be applied with light hands, as the kajal is very soft and too much pressure might break it. It lasted easily on me without smudging for about six hours on my primed eye lids.
My Take: I wear contact lenses and the kajal did not irritate my eyes at all, though I did not wear it on my water line. The color is really beautiful and would flatter medium complexions the most, I feel :). It might seem loo loud, but when I wear it it looks really pretty on my eyes and I can wear it all day through. A must have for me, and can be used to create various looks like, it can be applied all over the lid smudged to make it appear like an eye shadow.
Highly Recommended ! A versatile product, which can be used as a liner and eye shadow as well. The color should suit all complexions, but would flatter medium complexioned beauties the most.
- Pretty color
- Lasts long
- Doesn’t smudge for long, when applied on primed eyes
- Non- Irritating
- Smooth texture
- Decently pigmented
- Only one, that it is soft in texture and has to be applied with light hands to ensure that it does not break.
Eye Make-up : I have lined my eyes with the turquoise kohl and then tight-lined with the black colossal kajal. So, It is a COLOSSAL SHOW !
I have worn it with MAC Crosswires lipstick and Sleek Blush By 3 “lace” , the blush name is “guipure” from the palette. The foundation is MAC studio Fix Powder over Maybelline BB cream.
