Hey People! ?
Good day everyone! ?
All the Kohl lovers here, give me a cheer! ???
Well, I am a huge Kohl lover! ❤
According to me, Kohl or Kajal is the most unique beauty product available till date!
No matter which look you plan to adorn, be it an everyday corporate look, a festive look or simply the girl next door look, a swipe of Kajal and your look is completely transformed from being average to amazing! ?
I had been sticking to the Colossal Kajal from Maybelline since the time it was launched.. But bored with it, I finally decided to explore some new options and thus came across this Kajal from Faces Canada…
Today I am reviewing the same after using it for a couple of days..
Read on to know if it lived up to my expectations.. ?

MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT:
The Faces magnet eyes kajal comes in a cardboard packaging with some zebra prints over it.. The kajal pen inside the pack is coloured brightly in red.. The red, black and white theme really makes the pack stand out (It caught my attention for the same reason! ?) .
The stick of the kohl is jet black in colour and a bit shiny in appearance.. The kajal stick has a weird, rancid vegetable oil kind of smell to it..
It glides smoothly over the eyelids and the waterline and just one swipe of it gives a decent colour which is buildable with multiple swipes..
(Left- Single swipe; Right- Multiple swipes)
The pack claims the kohl to be smudge proof and water resistant..
Now, the kajal is water resistant to some extent(NOT COMPLETELY) for sure, but not smudge-proof at all.. Even just batting the eyelids harshly makes the kajal smudge..
Although the smudging factor is a con for those who want a long wear kohl, this would be great for people who want to achieve some easy smudged/smokey eye look! ❤
In the picture above, I have smudged the kajal with my thumb, after letting it set for a few minutes..
Also, the kajal stick is too soft to touch and bends and breaks very easily.. It’s really hard to apply the kajal even if the stick is just a centimetre out of the pack..
SUMMING UP PROS AND CONS:
1. Inexpensive and travel friendly.
2. Available both online and offline easily.
3. Easy application; glides smoothly; nice colour payoff.
4. Free of Parabens and other preservatives; has Anti-oxidants and minerals in it!
5. Water resistant to some extent.
6. As it smudges easily, it can be used to achieve an easy, simple, smokey eye look!
1. Not smudge-proof at all.
2. It is shiny and not matte.
3. False claim of lasting all day.
4. Smells like rancid vegetable oil.
5. The stick is very soft and breaks easily.
6. No ingredients list mentioned.
FINAL TAKE: The Faces magnet eyes kajal is an inexpensive option for those, who are looking for a preservative free, pigmented kajal or want a simple smokey, smudged eye look; but not a satisfactory one if you want a smudge-proof kajal that stays on you for long.
Hope it helps! ❤
