Nykaa EyemBlack Kajal Review, Photos and Swatches


Hello, gorgeous ladies!

Lining eyes with Kohl and eyeliner is a religious part of our makeup routine. In India, deep and dark kohl-rimmed eyes symbolise femininity and traditional values of Indian culture, right? Last month, I was busy trying out newly launched Kajal and liners from Nykaa. This one is last but not the least out of all the four Kajal and eyeliners which are sent from the brand itself and here goes my review.

Product Info

Here’s a winning combination! Nykaa’s EyeM Black Gel Kajal brings you the luxe gel finish in the ease of the pencil! This creamy, no-tug eye pencil can be used along the lash line or extended to create a dramatic eyeliner flick with its blackest black pigment. It’s waterproof and smudge-proof formula glides on effortlessly and the rich black pigments stay put for a perfect, intense dark line that lasts all day and all night!

INR 375 for 1.2 gm


The Nykaa EyemBlack Kajal comes in an outer packaging of the hot pink carton with reflecting detailing which looks absolutely stunning and eye-catching. All the product details and the shade name have been displayed on the carton itself. The Kajal pencil is jet black in colour, which is secured with a tight cap with a similar colour. It really compliments the outer packaging. Full marks to Nykaa for this.

Colour, Texture and Pigmentation-


Omg! This is the blackest black in colour out of all the kajal available today. Probably, the best gel Kajal, I have seen so far under 400 price tag! I love how it transform my eyes in just one swipe. The best thing about this Kajal is, It has an even application and sets quickly.

It glides effortlessly, just like a butter. The texture is so soft and smooth, so no tugging and pulling at all. I have sensitive and hooded eyes and whenever I apply this, it gives  bolder and sensuous appearance to my eyes.

Like I said, the pigmentation is great of this kajal in just one swipe. If you are in a hurry, just apply this kajal and you are good to go! If you are following us on youtube, you must be aware of Anamika’s new tutorial of Priyanka Chopra’s Oscar 2017 look in which she has used this kajal to line her eyes and she is quite obsessed with this just like I do 😛

Staying power-

Different people, different opinions! On Anamika’s eyes, it stayed whole day long without any kind of strong base. And one more noticeable thing -No smudging at all. But on my super oily eyelids it didn’t stay more than 3 hours 🙁 So, if you have super oily lids like me, make sure you prime your eyes well before heading to any kind of eye makeup. It will surely save people from your scary panda eyes! 😀

This one is totally safe for sensitive eyes as I didn’t notice any kind of itching at all. The only thing that has made me sad about is, it’s non- retractable packaging which leads to product wastage!  If you are among them who are crazy about kohl and liner then this one surely deserve a place in your kitty 🙂
