Hello all, today I am going to review a recent launch by Maybelline, the Colossal Kohl Turquoise. If you’re following this blog then you would know that I have mentioned it in my last haul post. At first I was too skeptical about this because I am not much into shimmery eyeliners, I love them matte. When I first saw the swatches of this kohl on others’ blogs, it seemed metallic and a bit shimmery. But, to my surprise, the shimmers were not as intense as I though it to be. It wasn’t matte but not glittery as well. 
I am currently loving coloured eye-liners, especially when it offers a two-way formula. This Colossal Turquoise kohl is formulated for both upper and lower lash-line. Let’s see what I feel about the product-

Product category- Eyeliner/Kohl

Brand- Maybelline

Price- INR 249 

Packaging- This kohl come in the classic Colossal packaging that is a bright yellow twist up pen with a tight cap. On the packaging there are some metallic turquoise accents.

Shade- This variation of the Colossal Kohl comes in a Turquoise shade.  Duh, that wasn’t a surprise at all! I would rather call it a bluish turquoise if that makes any sense at all. All I mean is it is not that typical turquoise shade. The shade is kind of a metallic turquoise blue with a bit of shimmers in it. The shade doesn’t look shimmery at all on the eyes. Just a tiniest hint of metallic sparkle. The product isn’t loaded with shimmers, it stays on place and most importantly, after washing or wiping off the product there’s no hint of any shimmer.

Texture- The texture is really very smooth if applied on the upper lash line, but I had a hard time using it on the lower lash line. It’s really very difficult to draw a smooth line along the lower lash line with this kohl. The tip of the liner broke when I tried to apply it on the lower lash-line L Otherwise it gives an even and smooth application. 

Staying power- My lower waterline and lash-line is extremely oily, the product stayed for a good 5-6 hours on my eyes. I found that the staying power is more on the upper lid/lashline than the lower waterline. It stayed for approximately 7-8 hours when applied on the upper lash line. I don’t agree with their claim about the lasting power to be 12 hours. At least for me, it was nowhere near 12 hours. Maybe oily eyelids are the reason for that. It doesn’t smudge out. I agree to the company claim here. For me, it didn’t smudge out but it faded out a little. 

Pigmentation- The new Maybelline Colossal Kohl Turquoise decently and evenly pigmented. Though it doesn’t give you the exact pigmentation in a single swipe, but it is really buildable. You can always swipe it twice to get the desired shade. 

What I have to say is- The colossal Kohl Turquoise is a nicely pigmented eye pencil with a 2 in 1 benefit of kohl and eyeliner. It doesn’t irritate the eyes if applied on the lower waterline. It happens to be a metallic shade though it isn’t loaded with shimmers. It is subtly shimmery which I don’t mind. I wish it was as smooth on the lower lash-line as it is on the upper lash-line. I would have loved if it was a matte shade. It has a decent price tag. Overall, I have a good experience with the Colossal Kohl Turquoise.
