Elle 18 has recently launched its new kajal in same lines as maybelline, Lakme and other brands. I have used kajals from Elle 18 earlier also and have loved them. So when I saw this kajal online I thought of giving it a try. The kajal is launched in only one colour i.e. black. So let us see the review:
Rs 135/- for 0.35 gms
- Smudge proof and convenient twist- up format for deep stroke
- Water proof, lasts up to 12 hours
- It is dermatologically tested and is safe for the eyes
- Easy twist up format
The outer packaging of the Elle 18 Super Black kajal is very similar to any other slim type of kajal available in market. The body has typical Elle 18 colours i.e. black with brand name written in purple pink colour. The kajal is intact in hard paper cover and covered with transparent plastic. At the back of package, one can see information about the product and instructions of its usage.
The kajal itself is a black body sleek pencil with retractable product in it. The cap of the kajal is very tight, which makes it suitable for traveling.
The texture as claimed by the product is very soft and smooth. The colour comes through on hand and eye in single swipe. The kajal gives a good black color in single swipe but it requires multiple swipes on eyes for super black colour. The application of kajal is pigmented on both eyelids and waterline. I loved the texture of kajal.
As mentioned in the name, the shade of the kajal is black. The single swipe black color is very decent and ideal for daily use. However, if one wants a super dark black shade, then 2-3 swipes will give you heavy kohl eyes. The kajal gives equal dark black on eyelids and waterline. The colour of this kajal is quite dark and loved the colour it gave on my eyes.
This is a very important part of knowing about the performance of kajal. The Elle 18 kajal claims super black kajal is a 12 hour kajal, which is very true. I have used this kajal on both my eyelids and waterline, the kajal stays in place on eyelids for approx 6 hours but on waterline it just stays for more than 12 hours .The kajal is water proof on waterline and it will definitely need a makeup remover to take off the kajal from waterline at the end of the day. The kajal is highly smudge proof on the waterline. On eyelids the kajal is performs a little less than on waterline. The kajal fades on waterline after 5-6 hours and is not fully smudge proof throughout the day.
The kajal is very good and performs really good. I would recommend everybody to buy this kajal.
