Plum Angel Eyes Kohl Kajal: Review and Swatch

After having tried a couple of skin care products from Plum, I decided to move to makeup. As I am an out an out kajal girl, ordering the Plum Angel Eyes Kohl Kajal was not a difficult choice to make. I have been trying it for a few weeks now so it is time to talk about it on the blog.

Price: Rs 425 for 1.15 gms.

The Plum Angel Eyes Kohl Kajal comes in a white colored pencil and plastic cap. It is supposed to come with a sharpener but somehow Nykaa failed to send that to me. I would have liked the packaging more if it had been a roll up pencil because carrying sharpener around or sharpening the pencil after every use does waste a lot of product.

The first thing you notice about the kajal as soon as you apply it how smooth and creamy the texture is. It just glides on your waterline and eyelids without any hassle. It’s a little low on pigmentation so you need to swipe it a couple of time to get those rich kohl rimmed eyes.

Staying power is not that great because the kajal stays on for about 3-4 hours on my eyes and  then starts smudging. I am soo grateful it doesn’t bleed to create those panda eyes effect which is a total nightmare but it does smudge alot and you have to make sure you d a little touch up after a few hours of wearing it. The staying power gets even lower if you have oily lids and try to wear this as a liner. I have super oily lids and it completely washed away the product in like 2 hours which was pretty disappointing.Also, it transfers and forms an outline of sorts on the upper part of my eyelids as well which is something I really dislike. Removal is obviously pretty easy and it comes off in just a couple of swipes of a makeup remover cream or oil.

All in all, I would say I am rather disappointed with this kajal. I love my kohls and nothing is worse for me then  a smudged  liner…I am not even exaggerating when I say I can legit cry over it and this kajal made me cry more than once. I am still able to use it on my waterline by setting it using an eyeshadow or smudging it a little but it definitely doesn’t work on my oily eyelids. I personally prefer kajals that are fuss free and I just like it quickly put a nice layer of kajal to make myself look a little more presentable when I do not have too much time in the morning but this kajal needs a little bit of work. Overall, it was fail for me and I am going back to my trusted liners so wouldn’t recommend this one to you.
