Lotus Makeup colorkick kajal review & swatch

Hi Everyone :)

Today I am reviewing Lotus Make - up Colorkick kajal.


 Ever since I saw the advertisement I was tempted to try it. So when I was at health & glow I quickly grabbed this when the SA swatched it, the color was jet black in just one swipe. She told me to let it set for a minute and after that she applied the cleansing milk on top of it and rubbed it vigoursly and this baby dint not smudge or budge what so ever. I was amazed and told her to bill it immediately.



Product claims: An extreme, deep black pigmented smudge proof formula enriched with botanical extracts of almond oil. The one glide application makes it easy to use without any flakiness and stays perfect for 8 hours without any smudge.

They also have included guidelines for 3 different looks that might be useful for a lot of newbies.
100% vegetarian enriched with botanical extracts.

                     


Texture & Pigmentation:
This kajal is ultra smooth and glides on like butter on my eyes. No pulling or tugging at all. Color intensity is jet black and super pigmented. You just need one swipe to get a solid black color that instantly makes my eye brighter.

Jet black in 1 swipe

Lasting power:
This lasted for a good 6 hours on me which is pretty good and after that it started to fade slightly from my waterline.
When I set the kajal with a black eye shadow this lasts easily for 8-10 hours.

After rubbing 1 minute later it still is intense and faded just slightly 

Packaging: I find the packaging really adorable. It comes in a flirty pink retractable pencil. The twist up mechanism makes it easy to use and makes it travel friendly 


Pros:
  • Jet black in 1 swipe
  • Contains almond oil which is good for eyes
  • 100% vegetarian
  • Smudge proof
  • Decent staying power
  • Even & smooth application
  • Doesn't irritate or sting my eyes
  • Lives up to most of it claims
  • Works fantastic as base for smokey eye makeup look 
Cons:
  • Slightly pricey for the quantity (may be a con for some)
  • Complete ingredient list is missing.
  • Does not stay for 8 hours unless you set it with black eye shadow (I dont mind that as I almost always set my kajal with ES)
Price: INR 199 for 0.28g

Rating: 4.75/5

Overall verdict: I always liked Lakme eyeconic over Maybelline colossal and now I can easily say that I like it as much as Lakme eyeconic. Well in terms of pigmentation this is better than Lakme & Maybelline but in terms of staying power lakme eyeconic wins. I will repurchase this.
