My Experience with Faces Magneteyes Kajal Deep Black
The Faces Magneteyes Kajal comes with an outer cardboard packaging, like most drugstore kajals. This one has bright red coloured packaging, which I really like because it makes it very convenient to spot the product amongst my other eye products, most of which have black packaging. It is a retractable kajal, which means that there is no product wastage. The cap is secure and shuts tight with a click. The pencil is slim and lightweight and is extremely travel friendly.
This product offers jet black pigmentation in one swipe. I never have to drag this kajal along my lash line or waterline, and that is a big plus point because too much pressure can irritate the sensitive eye area. I picked this up at a local store, where I swatched multiple other drugstore kajals, and no other kajal seemed as black to me as this one. The formula is extremely rich and creamy, and just glides on effortlessly.
One of the main claims of this product is that it is smudge proof, and that is certainly true. The kajal takes a couple of minutes to set. But once it sets, it will not budge throughout the day. Before I discovered this product, one of my biggest qualms with wearing kajal was that I ended up with panda eyes at the end of the day. That is not the case with this one. It is also waterproof to an extent.
However, I find that the Faces Magneteyes Kajal is not completely fade proof. After 5-6 hours of wear, there is significant fading on the waterline. This can easily be fixed with reapplication and I personally don’t mind it because of how inexpensive this product is and how well it performs in all the other areas. It is worth mentioning that it does not fade on the lash line.
The retractable nature of this kajal means that you don’t need to sharpen it, which saves time and product. It’s also quite thin so it is easy to apply it in the smaller areas of the eyes. Moreover, this is not a kajal that requires intense rubbing for removal. It comes off easily with any oil-based makeup remover.
Another thing that I noticed is that this product never irritates my eyes. Certain kajals, especially the strongly pigmented ones, tend to irritate my eyes and make them watery. This is a very impressive quality because it makes it safe to use this kajal every day.
At just Rs. 179, I think that the Faces Magneteyes Kajal is one of the best in the drugstore. Faces Canada’s products are easily available at all major online stores and are often on great discounts. If you are able to get it during a sale, it is an absolute steal. The brand also has an excellent offline presence and you can easily check out the product before you purchase it. I think that it’s the best option for college girls or for anyone looking for an affordable kajal that performs well.
