Hi All 🙂
As I start the review of Nykaa EyeM Black Kajal , the song that comes to mind is “No” by Meghan trainor Coz M a gonna say no to this kajal and you will soon learn why.
Nykaa the online portal for cosmetics has been on a roll and has been launching in-house brand cosmetics. I have loved thier creamy lipsticks however the kajal is a disaster.
The Kajal comes in a red box with all the details on it. The Nykaa EyeM Black Kajal, has a black body with the black cap. It’s a sharpenable and since it’s soft one has to sharpen it again in no time. There is a sharpener supposedly free with it, but I dint get it. Got lost in the way or it’s on the way I don’t know. Anyhoo, the Kajal as they mentioned in the description has all the traits of a gel Kajal. It’s super duper black, glides smoothly on the upper lash line and waterline. However it loses in staying power in big way. On the waterline it starts smudging in about 2-3 hours and end up giving racoon eyes. On the upper lash line it stays long about 6 hours.
I am making it work, eyeshadow on the top of the Kajal, touching up , wiping the kajal and all that jazz. But temme how many of you have that much patience. Also at this price it should have performed well. On the upper lash line it does stay long, but being a kajal it has to stay on the waterline which it doesnot do. And if you want this for eye liner, I would say no. As there are plenty of kajal’s under 200INR which works wonderfully for that purpose. A big no from my side. Not at all recommend.
Price: 375 INR for 1.2 gms
Jet black, Smooth texture and glides smoothly on the waterline
It smudges and gives panda eyes ( Not the cute one ), Staying power is not good, sharpenable so product wastage
Which kajal are you using right now? Any product that disappointed you recently?

So this kajal turned out to be a dud. Smudging in waterline is a disaster!
Love the black but Panda eyes doesn’t sound that flattering 🙁 🙁
Thanks for this… This was suppose to be my next purchase but now I’ll just skip it…smudging not allowed! Sad it looks super pigmented
Loved your honest review..
omg ! this sounds so bad, doesn’t justify the price tag, honest review 🙂
Jet black with a smudge would make me look like a ghost as I already have dark circles????
😀 This makes everyone look like one
Thanks for the review..Skipping this one… 🙂 🙂
I remember you mentioned in one post that you set your eyes with eyeshadow..then too this one smudges then I am gonna get ugly eyes and would end up looking like a candidate for horror movie 🙁 I bought it long back now i’m afraid to use it 😀
Yeah the Faces one 🙁 lately whatever I pick is making me work a little too much.
ehehe.. Might work better on you 🙂
Good to know but they should have taken care of the panda eye thing. NOOooooo from me too 🙂
Very honest and detailed review. Thanks for sharing it.
Hooonestttt !! My actual expressions are like that of the panel judge who screams ‘honestttt’ when a contestant express that she wants to eat rajma chawal and drink 7UP after winning the beauty pageant! ☺
Haha.. Whats the point of bragging about a product that doesnot work 😀
