Lotus Herbal Natural Kajal Review

Bonjour Amis!!

Whenever there is a discussion about beautiful eyes, Bollywood songs are the first thing which strikes my mind ( Tere naina, Ankhiyon se goli maare, yeh aankhe dekh kar hum sari duniya bhool jaate hai, blue eyes hypnotise kardi hain mennu etc.) the list is never ending. Except from the pious day of Diwali, I never applied kajal (kohl) in my eyes. The reason was the belief in superstition that if you don't apply kajal on that night, then you will become a lizard in rebirth. It sounds funny but in those days it appeared to be more profounding truth.

                     From the day, one of my friend insisted on applying kajal, it's a never miss that my eyes have not witnessed  kajal even a single day. Kajal gives a charishma and on another hand leaves an eye soothing experience for who glazes at them :) Today I am going to review Lotus Herbal Natural Kajal.

Product claims: 100% natural kajal that relaxes & soothes eyes through the day. Smudge-proof & long lasting, it contains botanical extracts of camphor & almond oil to pamper eyes.

Ingredients: Botanical Extracts of camphor & almond oil.

Price: 135 Rs

Wt: 4 gm

Shelf life:36 months or 3 years.

Staying Power: 2- 3 hrs

Online availability: Flipkart, Amazon, Lotusherbals, E.bay.

Lowest online price: @ 121 Rs.

Directions for Use: 
Clean the eye area including the eye lashes. Dab loose powder or a compact, gently pull down the lower eye lid so that the water line is exposed and with one stroke apply the Kajal.

Packaging: This kajal is packed in the style of lipstick tubes, the twist up types. The tube is red in color and the twist up base for the tube is black. The tube has a very tiny transparent plastic pressing cap. The black kajal is molded in the form of a cone. The cap is very irritating since it is small. The press lock is not strong enough to keep it sealed to the tube. I have seen many times that the cap gets separated from the tube when carried in bag. This kajal is not a travel friendly one.

My opinion about this Product: This kajal is intensely black, gives my eyes the gloss and shine. There is a sheen in the kajal and the color is intense jet black,,which comes only after 2-3 swipes btw.. else in one swipe it gives a normal black shade which looks more subtle. It smudges slightly on my eyes and whenever I use it I make it a point to set some loose powder under my eyes so as to control the smudge. From me its an average product. 

What I like about this product….

1. Stays on for enough long though it fades with time.
2. A twist up tube package.
3. Easily available in market.
4. Dark pigmentation of the kajal.

What I do not like about this product….

1. Not suitable for upper lash line application, it smudges.
2. Packaging is not travel friendly as the cap gets separated easily.
