Maybelline the Colossal Kohl Crushed Emerald, Jewelled Jade & Smoked Silver Review & Swatches


Maybelline-the-Colossal-Kohl-Review

Heylo everyone, I’m trying to keep up the pace for reviews here and trying to cover most genres :). This year I have planned to be more regular and cover variety of categories :P. Today’s post is going to be review and swatches of Maybelline the Colossal Kohl Crushed Emerald, Jewelled Jade & Smoked Silver. I know you have already seen many reviews and swatches of these but hey! I still want you to see them from perspective of a self-proclaimed eyeliner-crazy girl (Yep that’s me 😉 ).

Maybelline the Colossal Kohl Review

Maybelline has introduce these colored kohls in year 2015. I have decided to do a single post again for reviewing all 3 shades from Maybelline the Colossal Kohl Range so it becomes easier to see swatches and review of all 3 at the same place, so Enjoy the feast :D.

Price & Quantity:

249/- INR for 0.35gm.

My Experience with Maybelline the Colossal Kohl Crushed Emerald, Jewelled Jade & Smoked Silver:

Packaging:

Same as regular colossol kajal, yellow twist up liner packaging but these have colored bands and graphics which indicates the color of the kohl 🙂 . The shade names are written on the body so you can call it sturdy color-coded packaging.

Texture:

Texture of Maybelline the Colossal Kohl is not very creamy. Jewelled Jade is the creamiest of the lot then comes crushed emerald and last is smoked silver. These doesn’t tug or pull the eyes and formula is easily workable.

Shades & Pigmentation:

Crushed Emerald is beautiful rich emerald with golden sheen, Jewelled Jade is satiny teal blue and Smoked Silver is beautiful grey color with silver sheen.

Pigmentation of Crushed Emerald and jewelled jade is good and in 2 swipes you get actual color on your eyes but with smoked silver you need 3-4 swipes to get actual color.

Performance:

I have tested Maybelline the Colossal Kohl on waterline (as a kajal) as well as lashline (as a liner). These have sheen but no glitter so these are safe to use on waterline and do not irritate my sensitive eyes. Crushed Emerald & Jewelled Jade has same performance, both stay put on my waterline for good 7-8 hours and then fade slightly but evenly. Smoked silver has a little lesser staying time of 5-6 hours on waterline. All 3 colors stay put on my very-slight oily lids for 9-10 hours. These do not smudge or get accumulated at corners unless you rub your eyes rigorously and you need to remove these with good oil based cleanser/makeup remover. Though I have faced color transfer on lids only once on a hot humid day when I did not set my eyes with powder so I suggest to set your eyes with powder to avoid any kind of color transfer on lids. Overall I love these a lot.

Now time for EOTDs…tadaaaa… 😀

Final Verdict: 4/5

Maybelline the Colossal Kohl Crushed Emerald, Jewelled Jade & Smoked Silver are gorgeous shades with metallic sheen which comes with a affordable price tag. They have good pigmentation(smoked silver is not very pigmented), good staying power and non-smudge formula which will get you through the day without any worries. The colors look beautiful on eyes and brightens them up. Crushed Emerald & jewelled jade are my favorite and I wear them a lot. Smoked silver is my least favorite of the lot.

Repurchase: Already repurchased all 3.

Recommended:
Crushed Emerald & Jewelled Jade : Absolutely yes.
Smoked silver: Your choice. I love it anyways 🙂

I love these shades but colossal doesn’t stay longer on me. This makes me very sad as the color range is really good.
