Even before I buy the previous one, Maybelline launches another new product in the market.So the new Maybelline Color Show Crayon Khol / Kajal is here – new range of coloured eyeliner / kajal pencil. To tell you the truth I had no clue that Maybelline launched its Color Show Crayon Khol,until I stumbled upon one at the maybelline beauty counters. It seems they are still to launch it outside India, hence they are not widely available or known to the world. According to Maybelline these are high intensity, bright & bold colours in an eyeliner. The bold color pigments creates high colour impact and high crystalline wax keeps the colours from fading and keeps the liner smudge-proof and long lasting.They come in 4 different colours – Shiny Biege, Light Peacock Green ,Ocean Blue and Noble Purple My vanity somehow did not have a purple eyeliner (I love purple btw), so I bought it as soon as I laid eyes on it.

My Take On Maybelline Color Show Crayon Khol
Maybelline Color Show Crayon Khol comes in a retractable pencil, hence it doesn’t require sharpening like most of the other pencil eyeliners.What I love about the packaging is the colour coded cap (according to the pencil shade), it makes it super easy to find in my vanity.The colour is a intense purple with purple glitter/shimmer.It looks awesome- the best shade among the 4 according to me.As it is deep purple shade, the pigmentation is pretty good.Two swipes gave me good colour pay off. Texture wise I was a bit disappointed, it is not as creamy or smooth as maybelline colossal or maybelline eye studio eye liner and hence it tugs a little and you will need to pull your eyes to apply it properly.
Maybelline Color Show Crayon Khol lives upto its claim of being smudge and water proof. Once set, it does not budge from its place. The staying power is pretty long – it lasted on my upper lash line for a good 6 hours, while on the lower lash line , it started fading after 3-4 hours. Infact I had to use a make up remover it get it off completely.
- Amazingly beautiful purple shade
- Comes in a retractable pencil, hence no wastage
- Smudge proof
- Water proof
- Long lasting
- Tugs a little (texture is not creamy or smooth)
- Pigmentation could have been better (specially for lighter shades like shiney beige and peacock green)
- Expensive compared to other coloured eye pencils / kohl in the market
Maybelline Color Show Crayon Kajal / Khol is a decent eye liner pencil, it has its set of positive and negatives. The colour is beautiful and the staying power is great, however the texture is not that great and the price is little on the higher side when compared to its counter parts. You can definitely give the purple shade a try !!! (Personally, I am not tempted to purchase any other shade from this range)
