These days I’m getting pretty obsessed with kohl and kajal’s. If you noticed my few previous review post are all about eye makeup products. Not that I’m complaining.It’s such a fun to play with products and the contented outcome from all the eotd’s.Btw thank you so much for all the love you showered on my INSTAGRAM pictures. It’s one of the best platform to share your work instantly and getting prompt feedbacks.
Maybelline O Maybelline It’s difficult to keep up pace with your so frequent launches.At Least please give us time to properly try and experiment your recent products.I think no other brand is as quick and updated like yours.And yet again you did a fabulous job by adding “The colossal Kajal Super Black” in the kohl series.More than diamonds I think “Kajal’ is indian girl’s best friend. For us “more is less”.
The Super Black belongs to the extended family of Colossal.But more refined , more black, more pigmented, more intense and super expensive.I have no clue why they have hiked its price to almost the double.Any how let me introduce you with the wow’s first.
Packaging, precisely the colour is exactly opposite to the yellow colossal but more wider.Quantity of product is same.It a twister pen so very easy to handle.True to their claim, it’s super smooth as it contains oil base pigments.The cache is the formula.With light absorbing pigments , it delivers more blackness than its predecessor.Two strokes are sufficient to get the desired effect.
It’s waterproof and did not smudge for good 6 hours.Even after washing your face, its fragments lingers.I use baby oil to clean off all the remnants.Use it on your upper lid as eyeliner and smudge it with earbud to get the smokey eye effect.If you want your kohl to last long , use any black eyeshadow above and you are good for another few hours.
For me the big let down is the price. There should be some reasonable hike in the prices.INR 300 is not at all justified with the quantity or quality.It is hands down better then the colossal but it’s way expensive. Even the quantity is less at this price.It will only last a month or less if used everyday.
Battle of The colossal and The Colossal Super Black
Staying power of the super black is almost the same as of The colossal(Yellow)
Super Black gets less smudged as compared to the colossal.
The intensity of the two kajals are almost the same.
The colossal is on drier side and super black is more oil textured which settles with blink of an eye.
The colossal tends to get break in between but its not the case with super black which is a brownie point.
Super black is 300 INR and Colossal is 200 INR.
The colossal super black is better overall but price is a showdown. Honestly there is not a huge difference in the two and i would wait for the sale period to get my hands on this one.Otherwise there is no downside of the product.Texture, pigmentation, intensity are all spot on.
Rest as it says” Each to their own”
