About Product :

Well, well , well ! If you are not aware of this Kajal, I guess you’re on the wrong website! Because Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal is common, is superb, is fantastic and it’s probably lying around in most of your bags right now 😉

There’s a reason why this is considered to be one of the best Kajals given for an impossible rate with pinch-smacking features for you and for me.

Product Features :

  • Unlike packing it within any rectangular box , this is wrapped around a plastic cover which can be visible from outside . Twisted and untwisted – this Kajal can be kept safely as this will not lead to product wastage as it is not retractable.
  • Texture is sweet , with an appealing look and it’s base is Matt finish, sorry ladies! – no room to sparkle and jitter here. 
  • Very sleek and thin, which in turn closes the doubt of being travel friendly or not.
  • Very intact and very intense and smooth as silk.

Since Smokey eyes is so in trend these days, and can be uniquely paired with a stylish kurta, a handloom saree, a sparkling dress or for a date night – Bobbi brown would be my choice

Product Features :

  • This doesn’t come alone but it’s cutely double packed with a smudger in a single frame. The small addition which I personally found that can avoid wastage of time was the shade is coded on the pencil which is a relief. A complimentary sharpener is given as well

  • Full marks for pigmentation. Crackers would fly just with one Swipe.

About Product :

Love might be difficult and not attainable but not all what we love can’t be with us

Why is this metaphorically applicable especially for “L’Oreal? “
Because we love Who enhances our energy, we love someone who beautifies our flaws, we want someone who is always available!
Now I don’t know about someone, but I definitely know about “something”
And this kajal is just a Supreme catalyst which fulfills everything you search in a man! So ladies, this might not be a problem anymore 😉

Product Features :

  • The packaging is unique which is sealed with a transparent package which flaunts the sleek beauty. The color is deep black with streaks of fuschia pink. Retractable and relatable! 
  • The highlight of this kajal is no-one could believe or expect such a pigmentation in an extremely reasonable rate,  which is fascinating and promotes strategically to all kinds of people 
  • Smooth and velvety which completely stands out.

Few Tips Which Every Regular Kajal User Must Know

Now that you have a clear picture of the requirements for your face with kajals, the deed doesn’t stop here. Along with the investment, it’s important to focus on the maintenance of your eyes as well as the products you buy. These steps are very simple hacks which doesn’t take much effort but might save you from a lot of efforts!

Careful With Your Kajal Buddy

Please be wise while choosing a particular kajal from a particular brand as this is the whole point right? Few might choose based on your budget, few might be brand – loyal , some might choose which is just in trend, or some might choose for luxury, which must be a big NO. All skin types are different and hence the requirements would obviously be different. Make sure whether the ingredients used suits your skin, always be careful if you have sensitive eyes and please note the pros and cons of each brand. It might be the best, but not for you!

Warm Up Before Winging

Never apply kajal without any base! Never!

Just as you wash your face before applying makeup, cleanse your eyes and the area surrounding it before applying your chosen kajal
Pro Tip: for oily eyelids – rub ice around to prevent from smudging or running and it also reduces the puffiness of your eyes and makes your skin look bright

Powder For Power

It’s common when a kajal smudges or the liquid runs off your eyelids – no matter how much you try, but you can prevent by powdering generously the area under your eyes and above it so that it conceals the area for a better finish

Choose The Right Direction

Never start applying your kajal from the inner eyelid as it would make your kajal tip watery and might not give a profound look.

Oily Forever?

Ugh! It’s a pain to never find a perfect kajal in spite spending and researching just because you have a defect in genes! But you might control the smudging to a huge extent by switching the type of kajal you use. Avoid pencil kajals and try gel kajal liner as it stays because mostly it is smudge proof.

Eyeshadow To The Rescue

If you still feel it smudges anyways, then try using eyeshadow on the top of the kajal line as it conceals your kajal from running out and also your look is enhanced by this process

Stay Prepared

Mishaps don’t inform and arrive. And when it can get embarrassing, it gives away our confidence! Hence please carry essential items like cotton swab or wet wipes for wiping it off or lining it properly

Conclusion

We are glad you reached till conclusions and we hope you got an idea about choosing and prioritising any particular brand or product. Never mind before checking thoroughly and accuracy should be considered. As a healthy Kajal can rejuvenate inner beauty with healthy aspects of eyes, make sure you follow the tips mentioned and happy shopping !!!!!!

Kajals: FAQs

1. Which kajal is easy for daily use?

Any kajal is used daily by almost everyone since forever, but select which suits your eyelids.People with normal eyelids can use the pencil kajals and those who have oily eyelids use gel kajal liners.

2. Can I wear kajal above my eyes?

Yes, certainly! But it depends on different shapes of eyes and make sure you choose the kajals which serves multi purposes or atleast which suits your skin

3. Will my eyes swell if I continuously use kajal?

Swelling might occur for few people, especially for those who have sensitive eyes, but a right brand usage and proper care will save your day.

4. If I don’t have a kajal at that moment, what can be used as an alternative?

An easy and quick substitute for a kajal is an eye shadow. But please make sure whether that particular eyeliner can be a substitute or not!

5. If I do not have a kajal, how can I save my day?

Mascara is actually very underrated for eye makeup, where a single stroke is enough to brighten your face without using a kajal . As it lengthens your lashes, the frame of your face looks much better and chiseled.
