Maybelline New York - The Colossal Kajal [Review+Swatch]

Maybelline New York's "The Colossal Kajal" is a talk of a town. It claims 6 hours Black, Bold+Smudge resistant. Isn't it quite eye catching? Being a person with oily lids and who loves kohl-d eyes, I always look around for pencils which are bold and smudge proof. 
Maybelline New York - The Colossal Kajal [Black/Noir]

My experience:
Let's start with the packaging first. It comes in yellow plastic mechanical packaging. It is eye catching, because while searching for a pencil in the makeup stash, especially when in a hurry, this pencil always catches the eyes because of the color. 

Being a kajal/kohl person, I look for a kajal/kohl that is creamy, smudge proof and has staying power. Maybelline The Colossal Kajal claims 6 hours black, bold + smudge resistant. I would agree with what it claims, but for only lining the lashline. It is black and bold, smudge proof and stays put for 5 to 6 hours. I am not too happy with the how it appears on my waterline. It is not as black and intense as I would like for my waterline. I prefer it to be intensely black. You need to rub back and forth for the black color to show. For my water line, Maybelline Eye master Drama works amazingly.

Coming on to the texture, it is smooth but a little dry; not creamy as I would prefer. The main reason for it is not to be as black or as intense in the water line is the dry texture. It is not as dry, but not as creamy. The texture gives you a hold while lining the lash line. On my oily lids, most of the liners smudge; especially pencil liners. This is the second liner pencil that doesn't smudge on my lids. It stays put for 4 - 6 hours without fading. This one is a HIT for my upper lash line but a MISS for my waterline.

Some wouldn't prefer it to use as a liner because it is sometimes hard to work with a mechanical pencils, especially for a fine or winged line. I myself like my pencils sharp and pointed, but it isn't that difficult to create a fine line with it, and wing it out. There is always another end of the tip which is sharp.

All in all, Maybelline The Colossal Kajal is a HIT for my upper lash line, and a MISS for my waterline.

L'Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss Caramel Mania - Toffee Delice [Review]

I'm a person who loves experimenting things with my makeup and hair. When it comes to changing the color, I can try the bold colors to subtle ones. Lately, I've been obsessed with Ombre and full brown hair color. I prefer hair dying my hair at home and that's why I love and prefer shampoo dyes. If you are new, and you are changing hair color at home, it's the easiest way. All you have to do is mix all the contents in a bottle, shake well and start applying. Yes, easy as it sounds.

[Review] Krylon TV Paint Stick - Orange

Makeup not only enhances your features, but also hides your flaws too!
Hiding my dark circles and finding the RIGHT concealer for the under eye circles has always been a BIG task for me. I have tried quite a few concealers, from different brands; none of them matched or could hide my dark circles properly. Until I came across orange corrector by Krylon.
