Maybelline Colossal Kajal brought a trend that was followed by every high and low-end brands- long staying and jet black kajal. And just like a typical kajal lover, I tried my hands on all of them, one of them being L’Oreal Paris Kajal Magique. Read on to know my views on it.

I absolutely adore the packaging of L’Oreal Paris Kajal Magique. It comes in a pink and black cardboard with a plastic case, which houses the product. The kajal is retractable and has its name imprinted on it in bright pink fonts.
This is one of the most disappointing features of this kajal. L’Oreal Paris Kajal Magique is not as creamy and smooth as the other kohls in this category are. I’m not saying that it’s hard. But it isn’t as smooth as a I like my kajals to be. Yet, it glides on the lash and waterline without pulling or tugging.
Kajal is a staple to my makeup routine. I do not even step out of the house without kajal. I know that’s not the best of habits, but I cannot help it. And it’s too late to revert.
Coming back to the product. Just like most of the kajal lovers, even I like my kajals jet black and well pigmented. But sadly, this product falters here as well. The color payoff is good when you use it on the lash line. But on the lash line, you’d need to swipe 3 to 4 for the kajal to show correctly. You can use it to your advantage by creating sultry and smoky look.
Enough of criticism. Now let’s come to the good part. L’Oreal Paris Kajal Magique is totally smudged proof, as claimed by the company. There’s not even the slightest irritation with this product. And the retractable design saves a lot of product and effort. (Sharpening and all, you know).
But the most impressive feature is its staying power. L’Oreal Paris Kajal Magique stays on the waterline for a good 7 hours and then starts fading. And on the lash line, it stays like, forever. This kajal just wouldn’t go without a makeup removal. This could partly be because of my dry skin. If you have oily lids, dab some powder before applying the kajal.
Pros Of L’Oreal Paris Kajal Magique:
- Smudge proof
- Does not irritate or sting the eyes.
- Dark black in color.
- Stay for a long time
Cons Of L’Oreal Paris Kajal Magique
- The kajal does not stay for 12 hours as claimed.
- It’s not as dark as claimed.
Live It Beautiful Rating: 4/5
At this price, I feel this kajal is a good buy. It’s not without a reason this kajal is giving tough competition to its competitors. Making a comparison wouldn’t be right as all the kajals are good in their own way. I just wish it were a bit more intense in pigmentation.
