Sleek MakeUP Kajal Eyeliner

Posted by Lipglossiping On April - 18 - 2010

Ringing up the till at £3.99, one of Sleek MakeUP‘s latest product releases is the Kajal.  A deeply pigmented eyeliner made with smudgy smoky looks in mind.

Based on the traditional Southern Asian kohl… Sleek MakeUP’s kajal is a much waxier, crayony affair.  It’s an eyeliner that never needs sharpening and is ready to go with a quick twist of the tube.  Compared to PURE’s now discontinued version, I find Sleek MakeUP’s version a little waxier… not quite so soft to apply but perhaps a touch more waterproof as a result.

I was sent the version in matte Black (Nocturnal).  The Kajal is also available in purple (Odyssey).

As already mentioned, the eyeliner twists up to reveal it’s full length.  It tapers to a smooth point, which is great for applying along the waterline and depending on how you angle the eyeliner during application… you can achieve different effects and amounts of ‘smokiness’.

The swatch on the left shows the Kajal applied directly from the tube, whilst on the right… I’ve smudged the line.  It smudges readily and thus I would only recommend this eyeliner for when precision is not important.  I don’t have particularly watery eyes and found that the Kajal remained happily on my waterline for many hours.

If you’re wanting something soft, easy to apply and richly pigmented for a ‘rock chick’ look (I hate that expression)… then beat your way down to your local Superdrug and pick one of these babies up!

    I picked up one of the Pure kajals a couple of weeks ago and put it down, kind of wish I’d bought it now! I’ll have to investigate Superdrug instead, for £3.99 I might have to buy both!

    damn, never thought of copying my comment before pasting it, as it had never crashed on me.

  8. liloo says:

    gah, i forgot what i said in my comment.
    gorgeous photos. if black waterline suited me, this is a product I would have definitely been interested in x

  9. Ooh, this looks great on you! I must admit that I’m partial to my long-wearing liners for waterline application, but I’m tempted! =)

  10. caz says:

    I dreamt about this last night. Why do I dream about buying makeup? I think it’s a sign from the bebbeh jesus that I should buy this asap! I wanttttts it

  11. This looks great, but my local store hasn’t even had the latest palettes in yet! Argh.

  12. Sheenie says:

    Ooh, you scrummy mummy! I just came back from my local Superdrug but they don’t have it at all! Also went to Oxford Street today but the Superdrug there shut down ages ago. :( My mum is really keen on this!

  13. I have the pure one and that one smudges like a female dog. I’ll still wanna try this one. looks cool. But someone tell me…what happens when you get further down the tube…?

  14. Rae says:

    Whoa! Hell-o smokey black liner! This looks (and sounds) fabulous — I wish I could rock smokey eyes as well as you :)

  15. Jennifer says:

    For those looking in the shops for them, Sleek were saying on Twitter on friday that they don’t know when it will be out x

  16. Leanne says:

    Good lawwwd you look stunning with a smokey eye! I’m really liking the look of this, at that price I’ll probably pick up both colours!

  17. @Deborah – Aren’t these kajals *supposed* to be totally smudgy though? I mean… If I wanted something that didn’t budge an inch, I’d go for a GOSH liner or simillar?

    Def don’t go for this if you find the PURE is too smudgy… this will smudge too, but it kinda sticks at the same time if that makes sense? x

  18. Riddhi says:

    As an Indian girl, I usually use those very messy kajals that come in little pots. Additionally, we line our inner eyelids with it. Although it looks good, it bleeds very easily, often leading to raccoon eyes.

    I like a brand called Niki Kajal, and my mom is a big fan of the brand Jai Kajal (which I think bleeds a lot, but I clearly am not good enough at applying it, it would appear.)

    It’s applied as a thin, inky line more than a thick, smoky one. But lately I’ve been so busy that I can’t keep up my appearance whatsoever. Ah…sadness.

  19. Lillian says:

    Oooh looks good to me, i’d love to see the purple colour. You look absolutely beautiful! I loathe the expression ‘rock chick’.

  20. Mhairi says:

    I looked for them in two of my Superdrugs, one of them still had the Bohemian palette as the main offer, and the other had all the signs up for the kajal but no stock! Grrrr! And I couldn’t find anyone to ask if they had any squirrelled away… maybe I should complain and get a free one, ha.

  21. Resha says:

    i so need to try this. it looks great on you, very smokey and sexy. very pretty.

  22. I’m so fascinated by these, especially when people squint and drag them across both waterlines O_O

    Very sexy look! Love the hot, smokey eyes :-)
