Kajal is one of the few things that almost every girl has in her makeup bag. Many of us have more than one in our kit. I too have at least five different brands of eye kajal, but my ultimate go to is, without a doubt, Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate Kajal . It is one of the best Kajals I have ever owned. Here is its review with swatches.
Price and quantity:
MRP INR 750/- for 1.2gm (this product is easily available at a great discount on various websites)
This kajal is two-sided, a long black pencil that can be sharpened. At the back of this kajal pencil is an attached smudger.
This is another wonderful product by Lakme. The brand claims that this kajal is waterproof, smudge-proof, long lasting, and has moisturizing ceramides.
My Experience with Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate Kajal
I would begin by saying that I am an absolute fan of this Kajal by Lakme. Lakme has other kajal as well but none of them delivers what this kajal does. As claimed, this is indeed waterproof and smudge-proof.
What I love about this product is that it is both a great kajal and eyeliner. It works equally well on the waterline as it does on the lash line/ eyelids. It is quite dark and one stroke is enough to get the pigmentation. However, you can reapply if you want intense black color.
Another great thing about this kajal pencil is that it comes with an attached smudger at the back. At times, when we apply a kajal pencil as eyeliner, a little space is left between the liner and the lash line. This smudger can be used to fill in that gap and give a perfect finish to the eyeliner. This smudger also helps to achieve the smoky eye look.
The moisturizing ceramides in this kajal make it easy to apply. It glides smoothly and can be spread easily with the smudger. However, once it dries out you cannot smudge it, even with the smudger. This is actually great because this means the kajal will not smudge easily later on.
This kajal lasted quite long on my eyes, even though I have oily eyelids. I applied it on the waterline of my eyes as well and it lasted longer in comparison to the other kajal I have.
All in all, I am extremely happy and satisfied with this kajal and big thumbs up from my side to anyone who wants to buy it.
