Maybelline Colossal kohl in Turquoise Review and swatches

Maybelline Colossal kohl in Turquoise Review
Hey girls!!
I will review and swatch the latest Maybelline Colossal kohl in Turquoise. It says “lines like a kajal and defines like a liner”. I may not be a fan of kajals but liners, O yes, I love them and when the color is itself from the blue family, why not!
Price: It is priced at 249 rupees for 0.35 grams.

Brand Claims “A unique product, colossal kohl that is specifically designed for two way application, both along the waterline, like a kajal and on the upper lash line, like a liner. Ophthalmologically tested, it is suitable even for contact lens wearers.”
Colossal effects: With a precision tip for a perfect application and a color fix formula that delivers an intense color results weather used as a kohl or liner, it stays for up to 12 hours.
View on the product: Just like the colossal kajal this too has a bright yellow packaging. The tube has the contrasting metallic blue lettering and design that gives it an appealing look!

Colossal kohl in Turquoise is a metallic blue that can give a bright pop of blue on the eyes. Very summer specific color. It has a very smooth texture that glides well, really well I should say, it doesn’t tug or pull the eyelids which I am concerned about as I have few fine lines that I don’t want to accentuate further.

At times, due to its very soft formula, it tends to breaks into chunks. The first time, I swatched it on my arm, a tiny piece of its tip broke off due to this, I felt that since the texture is so soft, it can also act as a cream eye shadow. You would have to just rub your finger over the lid and then try to smear that product on your finger on your eyelids.
It takes some time to fully settle and once I give it that time it becomes smudge proof. It stayed for around 8 plus hours, I couldn’t check the 12 hours claim as I don’t wear my liner that long, may be rarely but that didn’t happened with this. But 8 plus hours was pretty good. At the end of the day its intensity diminishes slightly especially from the inner corners where it get patchy.

Pigmentation is good. In my eye swatches I have swiped it twice at least on the upper lash line.
It doesn’t come off easily; a bi phased makeup remover would make the job easier to get rid of this.
Overall, considering the price and everything, Colossal kohl is a decent kajal to add a pop of color to your eyelids or waterline. It has definitely given a good option for colored kajal/liner lovers that too at an affordable price.

Take: Maybelline Colossal kohl in Turquoise is a pretty metallic blue that can be used both as a kajal and as an eyeliner. Even if it has shimmers it was safe to wear on the waterline. It glides well and has an intense color pay off with a good staying power due to which it stays on the lid the entire day though fades slightly or can get patchy at the end of the day. While using it too much pressure should be avoided as it has a very soft lid that is prone to breakage and once applied tiny chunks also comes off, therefore extra care is required there. At that price a bright blue color with all those features makes it a good to try option if you really need this color!

PR sample though the review is honest as always!!
