Over the years, people have been fighting over the fact whether Maybelline Colossal is a better kajal or is Lakme Eyeconic takes that crown, now with he entry of Kajal Magique from L’oreal in this territory, its become a fierce three way battle. Many of you keep on asking me about which one of the three is the best or which one do I recommend, well so today I thought of doing a quick comparison between the three, which will help you choose better.
Though all three kajals come in retractable tubes , Loreal kajal magique is definitely the most attractive to look at – a chic electric pink and black packaging wins hands down over the yellow tube of Maybelline Colossal kajal and the black & turquoise tube of lakme eyeconic.Packaging is definitely not a factor while choosing a kajal, however I thought I will still let you know
Winner : L’oreal Kajal Magique
The first thing that comes to your mind when you talk about kajals is its intense black colour, though lakme has recently launched its range of colourful kajals, nothing beats a black kajal, you will find it in every woman’s handbag. Maybelline colossal is the darkest of the three, one swipe gives you intense black colour. Lakme Eyeconic comes a very close second . L’oreal kajal magique is the weakest of the three, it needs 2-3 swipes to build the colour to its full intensity.
Winner : Maybelline Colossal.
All three kajals have a decently smooth texture and glides on easily.Loreal Kajal Magique is definitely creamier and easier to apply than Maybelline Colossal, however Lakme Eyeconic has the best texture out of the three, it is very smooth and creamy and glides on the eyelids easily without tugging.
Winner : Lakme Eyeconic.
Personally I have faced a huge problem of breakability with both Maybelline Colossal and Lakme Eyeconic. Both the kajals are very soft and at times when I try to apply them on my upper lashline a huge chunk of the kajal breaks apart, which is disappointing. I haven’t faced the same problem with L’oreal Kajal Magique. I have been using it for 15-20 days and it hasn’t broken off even once.
Winner : L’oreal Kajal Magique.
I have applied all three kajals on both my upper lash line and my lower water line on a regular basis. Loreal Kajal Magique and Lakme Eyeconic stays on my waterline for 2 hrs to 2.5 hrs. Maybelline Colossal starts fading after an hour or so. However , if we talk about the upper lash line, I find Lakme Eyeconic to be the best. It stays on my upper lash line for a good 10 hours. Maybelline Colossal starts fading in 5-6 hours and so does Loreal Kajal Magique
Winner : Lakme Eyeconic
All three kajals are smudge proof. Lakme Eyeconic wins the battle in this area from Maybelline Colossal but very marginally. Loreal Kajal Magique doesn’t smudge considerably either however out of the three it smudges the most.
Winner : Lakme Eyeconic.
Removing make up at the end of the day is of utmost importance. If you are using a regular eye make up remover (non oil based) like me , then you will find Lakme Eyeconic the most difficult to remove. It usually leaves behind kajal residues. However if you have a strong remover, you will not find this problem. Maybelline Colossal is the easiest to remove out of the three.
Winner : Maybelline Colossal
- Maybelline Colossal : Rs 175
- Lakme Eyeconic : Rs 199
- Loreal Kajal Magique : Rs 245
Overall if you ask me to choose, I would say Lakme Eyeconic is my favourite kajal out of the lot. It has an intense dark colour, stays long and does not smudge too, yes it is difficult to remove the same with an ordinary make up remover, but that is manageable.
What do you think of these Kajals, which one is your favourite ??? Do let me know
