The New 12hr Maybelline Colossal Kajal Review

I have been an ardent fan of the old Maybelline Colossal Kajal. So when Maybelline re-launched it in the 12 hour version, I was eager to try it out.


PRICE:  Rs.175



WHAT IT CLAIMS: The deepest black Kajal, creates bold lines & is smudge free for up to 12 hours.

Colossal Intensity + Colossal Wear for Colossal Striking Eyes.


MY EXPERIENCE: I don't want to repeat all that I already said over here (read for detailed review). I am just going to add the points, where I found it better/worse than the previous version.

  • The 12hr stay claim is pretty true. Yes I tested it for 12 hours and it stayed on with just a little bit of fading (due to accidental rub).
  • Doesn't smudge, budge or give raccoon eyes. 
  • Water proof, sweat proof, rain proof! :P
  • For more, go here again.

  • It is not more intense than the previous version IMO, and I would have liked it better if it had a bit of sheen to it.

VERDICT: True to it's claims, the new Maybelline Colossal Kajal is all set to win hearts of kajal/kohl lovers again. Deducted ".05 " this time as I wished a little more intense, black sheen from this new version, which the old one lacked.

RATINGS:  4.95 out of 5

  1. I absolutely love this kajals pigmentation and smudge proof formula.:) Nice review Pooja! :)

  2. i love using it..i finished my 3rd or 4th one i think..i like the intense black effect you know..and i have very oily and sweaty skin so i am glad this doesn't smudge (that much. it does slightly near the corners for me)..many suggested switching to the lakme eyeconic one. but i am skeptical.

  3. I am a big fan of colossal, currently using my 3rd stick ;) stands true to its name :)

  4. I have oily lids and a watery waterline. 12 hours seems interesting. Going to try it.
