Here are the two kajals from Clarins summer 2012 makeup collection, one is purple and the other one is black and each retails for £15.
I actually really like these for what they are, they have a nice India inspired, design, are very soft and don’t cost a fortune. It is also written that these are formulated with rose and mimosa extracts.
When it comes to my own makeup, I usually use a soft (most of the time dark brown) eye liner, smudge it, add mascara and that is all. So these two are actually perfect for that! Clarin’s Kajals apply smoothly and blend easily. I love blending them really well so that I get a thin layer that lasts for hours on me. Then I also build up the colour closer to the lash line. This is an perfectly easy look as you can get a variation of shades with only one product.
But I have to say that if you have oily lids ( I did try it on the model with oily eyelids for this review) you will need to use a primer as, otherwise, it won’t stay on for the whole day without creasing.
I really like using mine and would definitely want them in different colours.
Here are the swatches.
Conclusion? These are amazing for a smoky eye and they are pretty long -lasting, but make sure that you use a primer if you have oily eyelids.
