Maybelline color shadow crayon kohl (Rs. 325/-, quantity not mentioned) available at Maybelline Counters
With every now and then brands are launching their new Kohl in various shades. Maybelline has launched new crayon kohl and they are not available everywhere yet. I have got mine from my friend in Chennai.
Maybelline Colorshow Crayon Kohl comes in 4 shades:
1) Noble Purple
2) Ocean Blue
3) Peacock Green
4) Shiny Beige
Packaging: Maybelline Colorshow Crayon Kohl comes in a slightly thick black retractable pencil format with color coded cap. The cap shuts perfectly and therefore it is very travel friendly without any worries of cap comes off. The color coded cap is highlight and makes pretty easier to locate in your vanity.
Shade: Ocean Blue as names suggest is a pretty ocean blue shade with shimmers present in it. This color is quite eye catching color from this range. This blue is quite unique though. I really like the shade. This shade is quirky and adds lots of drama to the eyes. This will going to be a hit amongst college girls.
Texture and Pigmentation: The texture of Maybelline Colorshow Crayon Kohl is smooth and soft. They are not creamy hence won’t be any fear of tip breakage. The application glides smoothly, no tugging or pulling.
Now coming to the pigmentation, here where it lacks the most, the pigmentation is poor I would say. The color does not show up on lids with a single swipe. You would need to get at least 7-8 swipes to show color on lids. Wish the pigmentation could have been more considering such nice blue shade it is.
Staying Power: Now coming to most happening part of Maybelline Colorshow Crayon Kohl, the staying power was beyond my imagination, It LASTED FOR A DAY..!!!!!!! Yes I have worn it for 10 hours and it remains without a single a sign of creasing or fading though on waterline it lasted for 4-5 hours. This is smudge proof and water proof. I have an oily skin and I really like the fact it fares really well on staying power. The removing part is a quite a tricky one as you need to rub well with makeup remover to remove.
I am quite impressed with staying power of Maybelline Colorshow Crayon Kohl though the pigmentation is poor. The color ocean blue is quite unique one from the lot. With affordable price tag I can see this will loved by all. I would love to try Noble Purple shade as rest other doesn’t catch my attention. This color would suit fair to medium skin tone really well. So do check out this shade if it’s near you.
