Replace Your Boring Kajal With This Sparkling One…!!!

Hello,

Are you a lover of eye makeup products…??? Can’t live without kajal and eyeliners…??? Well, this post will interest you… 😉

It’s time to drop our old gel liners… This year it’s all about gloss and glitters… To add the spark to your eyes, you don’t have to buy a box of makeup glitter separately… Anyways we really don’t get that much time to apply liner and then apply glitter on it… Isn’t it…??

Let’s drop our old liners and get our hands on this sparkling black kajal… Let’s get to know it better… What’s say??

Brand :

Rimmel London

Kajal Name:

Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal

What Product Claims:

Shades available :

  • Sparkling Black
  • Black
  • Brown

Shade Name :

Sparkling Black

Price:

345 INR 1.2 g

Shelf Life:

3 years

Packing :

This comes in typical pencil form. A sparkling black pencil to be precise. Need to keep sharpener handy.

The cap is tight. Sooo tight at first that, I had to put all my energy to open it. But, unfortunately I ended up breaking the tip. You will get to know ‘why’ in texture section below.

Texture :

It’s creamy soft. Glides smoothly on waterline.

Color payoff :

This is a black shade. Not the deepest of black. What I love the most is these tiny sparkling particles.

At first, I wasn’t really happy with the amount of sparkle it added to my eyes. But after it got settled on my eyes, the shine was amazing.. Got compliments for that shine too… #blushing

Does this smudge:

Let’s accept this fact that there is no kajal or liner, that doesn’t smudge. Goal is to find a kajal which smudges less. This one just right to serve this purpose…

It smudges very less. Usually I have to bug my friends at office to keep a check on my kajal whenever I don’t get a mirror. Yes I do. They laugh at me but they help me to know whether it’s smudged or not. #typicalgal

Staying power:

Stayed for 6 to 7 hours with a bit of smudging.

Can we use this as eyeliner :

Yes. I did apply this on both on eyelids as liner and on waterline as kajal. It look amazing…

What I like :

  • Color payoff with sparkling black. I loved it.
  • Smudges less.
  • Glides smoothly
  • Affordable.
  • Available online. Hence availability is not an issue.
  • Travel friendly.

What I don’t like :

  • It could have been retractable pencil packing. Because while you sharpen the pencil, you do end up wasting some product.
  • As the product claims its not Waterproof, sweat proof, heat proof etc. It does smudge.

How to Fix Broken Cosmetics

Hello,

The other day I bought a sparkling black kajal pencil from the brand Rimmel London online, from Nykaa… The cap of the kajal was so tight that I had to put all my energy to open it. What happened next broke my heart. I ended up breaking the tip of the kajal. #sad

You can feel that pain right??? Breaking your brand new cosmetic. Heart breaking moment gal…!!!

If you are a makeup enthusiast and love cosmetics, I am sure you have gone through this kind of heart breaks at least once. No??? Oh come on, you should have at least one dried nail paint or an eyeliner you have never used since long time. Yes even they come under ‘broken cosmetics’. haha. But the good news is there are ways to fix our broken yet precious cosmetics.

Yes. You don’t have to throw away only because it broke accidently, instead of wasting the money you have spent, try out these steps to fix them.

Excited to know how???

Read on..

Broken Kajal:

Let me start with the recent one I have tried and tested. If you open kajal like hulk(putting all your energy) and end up breaking it, try this.

Put the tip back and blend it which is a temporary fix. Just to make sure the kajal is back in place. Now put the kajal pencil inside freezer for couple of hours.
It did work. Kajal had hardened and it was usable again…!!!

Dried Kajal Pencils:

Yes this too happens. If you keep eye pencils unused for long, they do get dried out. Which makes their application uneasy.
So to soften the dried kajal, just heat the tip of it slightly. This melted kajal is easier to apply.

Dried Gel or Liquid Eyeliner:

This happens with all those gals like me, who buy all the types of kajals and eyeliners in the market and use only few of them. In order to take care of rest of the dried eye makeup product, all you need is any essential oil. I use coconut oil.

Put few drops of coconut oil in the gel or liquid liner container. Leave it for a while. The product and oil gets mixed up and it softens the product.
Now you can use your moisturising eyeliner…!!!!
But, make sure use add only few drops of oil. Because you don’t want to end up making it very thin in consistency. Which makes your liner runny.

Dried Mascara:

Using dried mascaras can make your eyelashes look like the branches of trees covered by snow flakes. But here the snow flakes are black in colour. Ewww…
To fix the dried mascara, put the mascara tube in warm water for a while. Then add few drops of coconut oil and shake the mascara tube vigorously. This should fix the problem.

Broken Lipstick:

Sometimes we end up breaking lipstick. What you need to do other than crying??? Umm… Take a lighter or lit a candle. Melt the liquid at the end where it has broken. Put the melted and softened lipstick back in the bullet. Keep the lipstick in freezer. After couple of hours – Tada…!!!! Lipstick is fit and fine… #wink

Dried or Broken Powder Compact and Blush:

All you need is a bit of alcohol to fix this heart break.

  • Take the injured compact powder or blush. Crush it into fine pieces. Ouch…!!!
  • Mix a bit of alcohol.
  • Blend it well to get a paste like consistency.
  • Now put this paste into the compact case.
  • Keep the case for drying.
  • Once it is completely dried, your compact looks like it never broke.

Dried Nail Paint:

This, we all know. Add nail paint remover to nail paint. This will soften the dried nail paint. After a while, you can use the nail paint to paint your nails beautifully.
If you do not have nail paint remover, try adding alcohol or hydrogen peroxide. They work similar to that of a remover.

Broken Eyeshadow:

Since eyeshadows are soft in consistency, this require a easy step.

  • Take tissue paper.
  • Put on the broken eyeshadow.
  • Press the eyeshadow with the help of finger.
  • This will put the eyeshadow back to it was before.

Unreachable Product:

In case you have spent a lot of money on some product and you want to use every bit of it. But some times it happens that, you can see the product at the bottom of the bottle/case but you cant take it out using your finger or by patting the bottle.
In this case, all you need is an earbud. Using a clean ear bud you can take out the product and use it.
I do this for my ‘almost over’ foundations.

So, now you know the magic to fix the broken cosmetics.

If you have kept those broken cosmetics just because you don’t want to throw it away, fix them and use them.

The next time when you break them accidently, do not cry. Take up the products you need to fix and give them another life.
