Maybelline New York India just launched two new and very popular beauty products namely Maybelline New York Colossal Kajal Super Black and the Lip Gradation Lipstick. The Maybelline team was kind enough to send me these products so that I could review them only for you all!
My makeup is incomplete without a super black kajal and a bold lipstick.
The Super Black Kajal by Maybelline smoothly glides onto the waterline without any fuss. The Kajal claims to provide 2 times blacker and bolder look in one stroke. The Kajal is deeply pigmented and does stay on for more than 12 hours without any smudge. I tend to use kajal's as eyeliners too when I want a smooth finish. The Kajal is priced at INR 300/- which is quite worth the price!
Now, let's talk about the lip gradation lipstick! To be honest, I'm not an ombre fan when it comes to lipsticks! And rarely can you expect to see me with ombre lips! So I just used the lip gradation pencil like a normal lipstick! Maybelline has launched 8 bright matte shades consisting of hues of pinks, orange and red. I used the shade "Coral 1". The lip gradation pencil when applied has a smooth buttery feel to it. It has a color stick on one end and a cushion blender on the other end to give you the ombre finish. If you want to try the ombre trend, just apply the color stick on the center of your lips and using the cushion blender, blend it outwards. The lipstick is a must-have since it can be used solely as a lipstick, a lip pencil or to give you the ombre look! It is currently priced at INR 500/- which is a little expensive!
