Today’s review is the L’Oreal Paris Kajal Magique. This product was really hyped up with all the TV ads and the endorsement by Aishwarya Bachan so I finally got around to buying it and seeing what the fuss is really about. Is the L’Oreal Paris Kajal Magique really the “Queen of Kajals” as the brand describes it?

How Did L’Oreal Paris Kajal Magique Work For Me?

L’Oreal Paris Kajal Magique has a very sleek and sturdy packaging and like a lot of other kajals available features a retractable kohl which is travel friendly. The pink and black color combo for the packaging sure does make it look hot too 😛 .

For a product with a comparatively higher price tag, it has an okayish pigmentation with an average creamy texture and it doesn’t seem to be pure black but more of a dark grey color when applied. The kohl is really smooth and doesn’t tug or pull on the eyes when applying but at the same time, one swipe never seems to be enough. To get the best out of it, you have to swipe at least 2 to 3 times. Having a retractable kohl means there is no wastage and no need for sharpening but that also means it is never precise and always leave a thick line. What I like about the L’Oreal Paris Kajal Magique is that it is able to stay on for 5 to 6 hours without smudging ( Yes, the brand says 12 hours smudge proof but I’m going to give it a pass for now ) and is also waterproof. And being a kohl that doesn’t give me raccoon eyes at the end of the day and also being very comfortable even when wearing lens makes me want to give it a very big plus points.

But now comparing to its competitors, the Colorkick, Eyeconic and Colossal kajals, I would prefer them over the L’Oreal Paris Kajal Magique on both performance and price. The main drawback is the pigmentation of the kohl which is what the product is all about. Having to swipe 2 to 3 times to get the black color is really time consuming ( ain’t nobody got time for that! ) and the kohl isn’t really black. I have no problem layering up on the upper line but I don’t like to keep adding layers to my waterline. I prefer doing it in one perfect swipe. So what does this mean? Well, you will be buying L’Oreal Paris Kajal Magique for a higher price and then using it more per application compared to the Colossal, Eyeconic or the Colorkick kajals.

L-R: Maybelline Colossal Kajal (Double Swipe, Single Swipe), L’Oreal Paris Kajal Magique (Multiple Swipes, Single Swipe)

Turn ons-

Easily available
Doesn’t irritate the eyes
Smudge-proof as an eyeliner
Glides on easily

Turn offs-

Poor color pigmentation
12 hour claim is a joke
Doesn’t stay that well on the waterline
Pricey than other existing popular kajals in the market

Would I repurchase the L’Oreal Paris Kajal Magique again ?

No. What is the point of getting something more expensive and then having to put in more effort to apply when I can do that easily for the same result with my colossal and colorkick kajal?

Shade- Black
Price- 275 INR
Rating- 2.5/5
