When I not wearing makeup, I am definitely wearing kajal! A majority of Indian women, including me, consider kajal as a grooming-essential rather than classifying it as ‘makeup’. It adds depth to the face and makes us feel beautiful and confident. Kohl also does the same job as kajal, but the difference between them are the ingredients used. Kajal is made from organic ingredients that are beneficial to the eyes, while Kohl is made from wax, powders, and pigments and appears more intense than kajal. Today, on the testing table is Olivia Kajal stick which is one of the affordable kajals available in the market.

My Take on Olivia Kajal
I have lots of kohls and eyeliners, but very few kajals. I still use the kajal made by my grandmother, years ago. She used to prepare kajal using neem oil, desi ghee, camphor and some secret ingredients. My mom used to push me in her lap and forcefully apply kajal on my lower lashline. 😛 That’s how my love for kajal evolved.
Olivia kajal has a basic black packaging with the brand label on it. The cone-tip ensures easy application and there is no wastage at all, as it doesn’t require sharpening.
Talking about the pigmentation, I’d rate this kajal 8/10. It has an intense black pigment which glides on the lash line smoothly. The texture is so creamy and rich. I’ve used it for tight-lining too and it works perfectly well. This is not completely smudge-proof, hence be careful not to rub your eyes after applying it.
Olivia kajal is made from natural ingredients and thus it can be safely used every day. These ingredients are actually beneficial for the eyes as it provides nourishment. I’ve tested it for a day and I am glad that it stays that long. Also, it doesn’t sting or irritate, unlike other kajal I’ve used earlier. Overall, it’s a worth-trying product for the price tag!
