I purchased the black shade because i was really fascinated by Faces products. However,
to my surprise it was not what i expected.
The kohl comes in a pencil that needs to roll on before coming out. The quantity is very less and no doubt it is creamy and pigmented and gives a jet black shade. But to my horror it smudged way too much. Even in half an hour after applying i could see it smudging without even me touching my eyes much.
I had to stop using it and i would say it is not worth the price as the quality is just not good.
I came across Faces Magneteyes Kajal almost 6 months back and since then it’s my favorite.
The kohl comes in a twist-up red plastic body which has small details encrypted on the body like batch number and expiry date. Its cap puts on perfectly and closes with a click. There is nothing much to say about the packaging as it is like any other twist-open kohl available in India market.
The pigmentation is super and better than original Maybelline Colossal Kajal. It is jet black and one swipe is enough to give the complete color. But I like applying two layers to fill any fine lines left. The texture is creamy and smooth. It glides on very easily and doesn’t break if little pressure is applied. Although I will suggest twist-opening only required amount and not applying too much pressure. I have not faced any issues during its application.
It doesn’t dry out quickly after application and any rubbing can smudge it. I use this property, to create smoky eyes look which stays on longer compared to creating it just with eye shadows. Normally dries within 4-5 minutes for single layer, but for multiple layering it might take some time. I won’t say that after drying it is completely smudge proof, as it does smudge a little if rubber but otherwise it stays intact.

I bought this from Nykaa for 175/- . I must say that this is the best kajal I've used so far. It is jet black and very pigmented. One applied, it settles into perfect matte and never smudges even after rubbing eyes. I'm so so in love with this product. As it claims, It lasts for all day which is very impressive. The packaging is simple yet pretty. It comes with a twist up mechanism hence no wastage. It is totally worth the price.

I purchased this kajal on a offer in amazon. But after using it I fell in love with it. This is the best kajal at very affordable price. Comparing to other standard kajals this stole my heart. The texture is smooth and glides very easily. It lasts for 6 to 7 hours for me. Single swipe is enough to get good pigmentation on both eyelids and water line. The packaging and body is similar to other kajals. It retails for just 175. I am addicted to this kajal and even I made my friends to try it. Overall amazing kajal at very affordable price.

I have used this kohl 4 or 5 times, I dont like it much as it does not lasts long, it fades away gets wiped with yur fingers, one can easily get better kajal in lower price.
The packaging is really good . The red stands out. It can be used easily. Nicely pigmented and really bold black. Not faint black . It can be used to create really bold and sexy looks .
My only problem is when I apply it. .after a ....2-3 hrs it irritates my eyes. I wear lenses but it has never been a problem before. I have used other liners on my waterline but this one causes my eyes to water and red a lot.so I have discontinued

It's a really good kajal
Its available in a pencil form
Purchased the black one and its a really good kajal it is packaged in a red retractable pencil which is convenient to use, surprisingly it works really well, like as compared to others it has a better staging power
Normal good pigmentation, looks really good when applied
Travel friendly and can fit in any small makeup pouch also
Its quite an underrated product it should be more well known and widely used since it is actually a pretty good product and works pretty well as the staying power is good and doesn't smudge easily as well.
I brought black shade of faces magnetic eyes kajal but i just used it for a few weeks because it smudged a lot. I really liked how pigmented it was and it surely gave a jet black shade but it smudged so much that i was not comfortable wearing it. It lasted for around 3 hours but with smudging around my eyes. I would say it is not worth the price because many smudge proof kajal are available in this price. It is a roll up pencil kajal. I was sad to see how it turned out because it is a very reputed brand and i had high expectations but only the packaging pleased me.
Which colour or shade did you buy?
