This Pigment-packed kajal delivers rich, dark colour with 12 hours of staying power. Skip-proof formula resists smudging, sweat and humidity, even water. Ophthalmologist Tested. Appropriate for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers, too.
Packaging: The kajal comes in a usual twist up tube. This kajal is not retractable though, meaning once you twist it up, it won’t go back in, so you need to be careful while twisting the pencil. The tube is sturdy and compact enough to be carried around in the handbag.
Texture: The kajal applies very smoothly and after few seconds it sets to a matte finish.
Shade: The shade blackened black is a pure jet black colour, no blue undertones to it. the shade is very pigmented and gives an opaque black finish in just one swipe.
How I use and staying power: Once I am done with my base makeup and contouring, I use this kajal. Just one thick swipe under the eye and I am done! The kajal applies as smooth as a dream and sets to a matte finish which won’t smudge whatsoever! Only one single swipe gives an opaque and dark jet black colour so you need not keep on applying layers. It was October heat and humidity everywhere, yet the kajal stayed intact for the entire day without budging even a bit. Waterproof makeup remover or micellar water can easily remove the kajal. Everything is good about this particular kajal from clinique, but I really don’t get as to why not allow the product to twist back in? if I mistakenly twist out the extra kajal, I will have to break it out to put the lid; and the product is already 0.28 grams and I don’t know how long will I be able to use this if used everyday!
