Hi Makeup Geeks,
Applying Kohl or Kajal is an everyday affair to me. I cannot resist a kajal a single day. Meaning, I cannot leave my house without wearing a kajal.
I already have many kajals in my makeup stash with different prices and these days, each and every company is launching new kajals and kohls every now and then. As, i cannot stay away from these beauties even a single day, i like to have a backup of kajal everytime so i didn`t give it a second thought while having the new launhed maybelline colossal kajal 24hrs with aloe vera. I already have tried their 6 and 12 hrs kajal and i loved them to the core. This time, I wanted to see if it lasts on me for a long hindu wedding from manda to dinner means 12-14 hrs i.e. almost a day. This one with aloe vera comes which is so great as aloe vera soothenes the eyes.

Claims By Brand :
- Deep Black colour.
- Lasts upto 24 Hrs.
- Ophthalmologically Tested.
The packaging is almost the same as the previous one i.e. 6 hrs and 12 hrs kajal by maybelline. The main distinction is the claim as the Maybelline The Colossal Kajal 24Hrs Deep Black With Aloe Vera comes with aloe vera and more staying power of 24 hrs.
Maybelline The Colossal Kajal 24Hrs Deep Black With Aloe Vera comes in a yellow colored cardboard outer packaging which has all the details clearly written in the black font. It has the same twisted mechanism as the earlier kajals by Maybelline and i like its rectractable concept which makes it easy to go in my travel kitty. The kajal comes in a old yellow colored pencil with a rectractable function and a cap on it which clearly shuts the kajal on a single click.
Shade and Texture :
As i feel, this one kajal from maybelline with aloe vera is very bold, dark black and smudge proof than the other versions. It glides on to eyes so effortlessly and smoothly. It is very intense black colored kajal which can be used for smokey eyes base, on upper eyelid and lower lashline too. It does not tug on to my eyes. It is creamy, smooth and matte in texture and it is waterproof too. I need its 2-3 swipes for the bold color. Though, it fades a little bit after 6-7 hours but it smudge a bit only which does not look messed up. There is still some kajal left on to my eyes. It does not irritate my lower lash line which makes it one of my favourites, for application in this hot summer. It lasts on to my eyes for more than 10 hrs and also i cannot wear a kajal more than 10 hrs. Do you wear a kajal more than this? Wiping it off completely requires a lot of effort but an oil based makeup remover may do the trick.
It is a deep black color which dries to matte texture after quite some time so i need to be very fast while smuging using a brush else it may dry out. This one is infused with aloe vera which gives hydration to the eyes. Although, the texture is creamy and matte but after application, it does not feel dried out. This one does not irritate my eyes which makes me fall for it.
My Take on the Maybelline The Colossal Kajal 24Hrs Deep Black With Aloe Vera :
I already used maybelline 6 and 12 hrs kajals and loved them so far until this new one launched by maybelline. I like its texture, it glides on smoothly on the eyes, the aloe vera present in it does not dry out the eyes and thus, overcomes the matte texture. It is so long lasting and in budget too. I don`t need to spend too much for an everyday kajal which is so long lasting that stays almost an entire day and can be worn in functions too. I have used 12 hrs in many functions instead of an eyeliner that is on the upper lash line. It is not irritating on the eyes as the claim Ophthalmologically Tested seem to be true. It provides the dark deep intense black color but i need more swipes for it, a single stroke is enough for daily look but not for that intense which is sometimes required. To remove it completely, an oil based makeup remover is a must otherwise one may look like having smudged eyes for the time being not removed entirely.
