This post is fully dedicated for the Best Kajals Available in India! From drugstore to high-end we Indian ladies love to try the darkest kohl that are available here.

1. Faces Magneteyes Kajal (175/-)

Best Drugstore Eyeliner
Faces Magneteyes Kajal is the cheapest one in the list but don’t underestimate its formula. Out of the ones I have tried, this one, once it sets on my waterline, doesn’t budge and has to be removed with a makeup remover.

2. Lakme Eyeconic Kajal (250/-)

Best Drugstore Eyeliner
The most heavily marketed kajal in India, the Lakme Eyeconic Kajal is readily available and is preferred by many as their go to kajal. It not only comes in the standard black but also comes in 8 more different shades.

3. Lotus Colorkick Kajal (199/-)

Best Drugstore Eyeliner
One of the creamiest kajal available in the market, glides on like a dream, doesn’t tug and applies jet black. With just a single swipe on the waterline this one gives wonderful color payoff and stays on all day.

4. Maybelline Colossal Kajal (200/-)

Best Drugstore Eyeliner
The first brand to come up with the long-wearing kajal formula and took the makeup world by storm. With the twist-up pencil packaging this yellow colored pencil ensured that there is no product wastage. They also come in a variety of shades if you’re looking for a pop of color.

5. Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate (Price-725/-)-

Best Kajals Available in India

Hands down this one is the bestest kajal I have ever used till now. The color payoff is phenomenal and it has the blackest black of all the kajals put together. The color is super intense and all you need is a single swipe on your waterline. It stays put for a good 8 hours without smudging or flaking. The only downfall with this kajal is that it needs to be sharpened which leads to product wastage. I would highly recommend this to anyone who can spend 700 plus bucks on a kajal that is long wearing and also safe for lens wearers.

6. Colorbar I Glide Eye Pencil Blackout (Price-445/-)-

Best Kajals Available in India

This kajal comes in the conventional pencil type. So it needs sharpening which leads to product wastage. The color payoff is fantastic and stays put on the waterline all day or I would say 7+ hours. But I wouldn’t recommend this for contact lens wearers because it kinda makes my eyes dry and/or contact lens when I wear this.

7. Revlon Colorstay One Stroke Defining Eyeliner (Price-560/-)-

Best Kajals Available in India

I would totally recommend this to anybody who are looking for long wearing, blackest black kohl. This one sets to be smudge proof but not 100% on the waterline still better than other kajals.

8. Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Eye Liner ($4.49)

Best Drugstore Eyeliner
Rimmel London is a UK-based makeup brand which makes one of the affordable range of makeup products came out with this eyeliner in 7 different shades. This pencil once sets doesn’t budge or smear and stays on for around 4-5 hours on the waterline.

9. MAC Technakohl Liner Graphblack (Price-1100/-)-

Best Kajals Available in India

The MAC Technakohl comes in a retractable pencil style. The formula of the pencil is soft and creamy. The color pigmentation is really intense and opaque. It dries to a non-smudge finish and is long wearing. It is on the pricier side for a kajal but if you are looking for a high-end kajal then this one is worth a shot.

10. Bourjois Queen Attitude Kohl Kajal (Price-670/-)-

Best Kajals Available in India

The packaging is very similar to the Guerlain Terracotta Khol Kajal which looks adorable.The kajal is cone shaped which makes it very easy to use. The quantity is enormous for the price. The formula is very creamy and doesn’t tug on the waterline. The kajal stays on for 6 hours and on the lash line it lasts all day.

So, these are some of the Best Kajals Available in India that I have tried till now.

    Hi, I have only tried the maybelline colossal and L’Oréal Paris kajal magique. Both are okay but have you tried Coloressence kajal pencil? It is super pigmented and long lasting as well. I also like the Oriflame definer pencil. I think that’s the only one that doesn’t smudge at all 🙂 Do try these two if you haven’t and let me know how you like it 🙂
    Love J ❤
