Maybelline The Colossal Kohl - Turquoise || Review and Swatches

Hi All!!

Summer calls for colors. I love how us Indians embrace colors and cosmetics company launching new colorful eyeliners allow us makeup crazy girls to experiment and enjoy colors. Maybelline recently launched The Colossal Kohl - Turquoise. I love their Colossal Kohl. I have used up around 5-6 Colossal Kajals, and I always have a backup or two of that kohl with me. Since the traditional Colossal Kohl has been a staple in my makeup routine, I was very excited when I got my hands on the new Turquoise color. I love colored eyeliners. They add something extra to the eye makeup. If you wear it alone, it is enough to get you by, on its own. Colored liners are definitely worth a try.

I think:

The packaging of this eyeliner is a twist on the packaging of the traditional Colossal Kohl. Maybelline did an excellent job in creating this eyeliner. I think texture and formula wise it is even better than the original Colossal Kajal. I love that this Kohl too comes in a twist up format which makes the product convenient to use.

I love the color as it not a bright in-your-face turquoise but has warm undertones which make it so wearable. I loved using it as an eyeliner and as a kohl. Even as a kohl, it did not smudge on me. I do not agree with the 12Hr claim but it stays well for 8-10 hrs on my eye lids as a liner and 5-6 hrs on my water line as a kohl. The formula of this eyeliner is beautiful. Though it has micro shimmer, it is not gritty. Though it is very creamy, once set it does not smudge. However if you have oily eyelids then I would suggest you to powder your lid area before applying it so that it does not transfer on to the upper lid area during the course of the day. It crumbled a little while I was swatching it, but that never happened when I applied it on my eyes. It does not irritate my sensitive eyes which is a big pro.
