Well I hate to do it, but I’m afraid I have quite a negative review for you today 🙁
As soon as I saw the Maybelline Master Kajal Kohl Liner advertised on TV I knew I had to have it – I’m a big fan of blue eyeliner and when I saw the model with her intense deep blue liner, I was sold!
So off I rushed to Boots yesterday to purchase it in Lapis Blue, as well as the Black version and a lipstick too, as it was buy two items get a third free 🙂
I must say I was quite intrigued by the kajal style of this eyeliner, I’ve never used one before as I’ve always previously used pencils. I couldn’t quite figure out how it worked at first, as there’s just one long point and the product does not twist up either. The side of the casing says ‘use sideways – no sharpener needed’ I have no idea how difficult of easy this will be to use, but I guess I’ll find out as the product wears down!
When I swatched on my hand, the tip broke off. I was quite disappointed with the pigmentation too but thought the end breaking off may actually be a good sign as it shows the product is soft, which usually indicates a good eyeliner.
When I actually tried the liner on my eyes, I was so disappointed. The product was no where near as soft as expected, it was actually quite hard to use and dragged my skin. As well as that the depth of colour was terrible, I was really surprised how hard it was to get the colour to show up. I went over at least three times and the depth of colour was still a complete let down.
I still have the black kajal to try out, but I’m not getting my hopes up. If you compare the Maybelline advert at the top of this post to my photo above, it almost makes me think Maybelline is committing false advertising!! This product is not at all like what you see in the advertisement. I’ll stick to my Bourjois Clubbing Eyeliner in future! What do you think?
I’d love to hear if you’ve tried this product? xxx
