Maybelline The Colossal Kohl in Crushed Emerald Review & Swatches

Hi everyone,
How is the weather treating you all? It has been extremely hot out here and also we had so many guests over the weekend as it was mine and my brother's birthday. I am super tired as well as irritated because the heat is just killing us softly.. hehehe.. Anyhooo if you remember few days ago I had reviewed The Maybelline's The Colossal Liner in Black, you may check the review here. Today I shall be reviewing Maybelline's The Colossal Kohl in Crushed Emerald. How did this colorful eye liner fare for me?? Read my review to know more....




Ingredients: Not mentioned

Price: Rs. 249/- for 0.35g. Available here and across all Maybelline counters in India




What does the brand have to say about this product:
The Colossal Kohl with its three new variants, Crushed Emerald, Jewelled Jade and Smoked Silver, has a lot to offer too!
• Lines like a kajal & defines like a liner
• Smudge- free and refreshing twist
• 12 hour staying power
• Smooth gliding tip for even application






The packaging is yellow very reminiscent of the Colossal family of eye liners. It is a twist up pencil so no fuss of sharpening. It can fit into the smallest of clutches and is travel friendly



Maybelline The Colossal Kohl in Crushed Emerald on my eyes

These eye liners are an extension of the Maybelline Colossal Kohl in Black which is the no.1 selling kajal in India. Normally I would be happy with using my black kajal and eye liner but a pop of color would be nice for a fun look and some variety to the daily boring kajal black routine. The one I received was crushed emerald which is actually the one I wanted. The pigmentation is a bit disappointing but 2 to 3 swipes are good enough to get the desired color on the eye lids.It is a bit metallic in nature.The color can safely be used on the waterline which is a plus point. The eye liner stays put for 4 to 5 hours easily unless you have extremely oily lids for which a dusting of powder would be appropriate. I do not like stark eye liner and this seems to fit in. However I wish the pigmentation could have been better. Apart from that I think its a nice eyeliner to try for a pop of color on the eyes.

The Good:
Easily available
Inexpensive
Beautiful metallic green color
Does not budge once it sets.
Decent pigmentation
Lasts for 4 to 5 hours
Twist up version saves product wastage
Safe to use on the waterline
Travel friendly packaging

The not so Good:
Pigmentation could have been better

Rating: 4.5/5

Maybelline The  Colossal Kohl in Crushed Emerald is a shade of Kohl I recommend as it is decently pigmented and also will suit most skin tones. Since it is safe on the waterline would double up as a kajal too. Do give it a try you will love it....

P.S: The product was sent by the brand for consideration but this does not affect my honest opinion.

  9. The heat wave is also a killer over here. I can't take it too. Sweating and smelling with sweat and my hair get itchy. I have tried the previous range of a similar liner from Maybelline. Have to agreed on the good points esp the about the twist up. The shade looks good on you.
