Hi there! Today we are talking about the best kajal in India that is smudge proof and does not irritate your eyes. I buy this makeup item a lot. I love to wear it on daily basis and I like kajal ( kohl ) more than an eyeliner because firstly it’s easy to apply and there is no hassle. Kajal gives more depth to your eyes and it’s one of the most favorite make up essentials and probably the first make up item I purchased in my life. We all deal with smudges, don’t we but with time and practice, I have learnt to apply the kajal that enhances the beauty of my eyes and makes it bigger and beautiful.

I have extremely sensitive eyes so I always look out for kajal that does not irritate my eyes. Eyes are quite sensitive so you can not apply just anything. I have no count of how many kajals I have tried in my life till now but since I have found my favorites and the best kajal in India, I keep on buying them and there is no replacement and no problem so far. If you are on a hunt for a kajal, this post will help you in making a good choice. I have selected the best kajal in India on the basis of these qualities:

  • Smudge proof and waterproof.
  • Does not irritate the eyes.
  • Suitable for sensitive eyes.
  • Blackest in color.
  • Good quality and really soft.
  • Hassle free aplication.

These are some qualities that I look for in the best kajal. Before I go on talking about the best kajal in India, I would like to give few important tips and the right way to apply a kajal. Let’s get started:

Things to keep in mind while buying the best kajal for your eyes :

  • Bad quality: So the list that I have come up with is on a budget. Don’t buy just anything. It’s the matter of eyes. Focus on the quality. Generally the bad ones are often dry so look for the kajals that are creamy and will glide on your eyes easily without irritating them.
  • Prep your eyes: Always wash your eyes to make sure there is no dirt inside your eyes and moisturize the under eye area as well as the lids.
  • Trying too hard: You have to be gentle with the eyes while applying a kajal because you won’t be able to draw a perfect line. It can also irritate your eyes so when you strech your under eye area, do it gently.
  • Sharpen the pencil: If you want beautiful, picture perfect eyes, you need to sharpen the eye pencil. Don’t sharpen it too much as it can again hurt your eyes.
  • Apply the powder under the eyes: You can use a small flat brush and just dab the baby powder right under the lower eyelid to keep the kajal smudge free. I forget to do this at times because the kajal I use is exceptionally good but this tip really works and I follow it at least on the important occasions because well no one likes to look like a panda.

These tips are worth following and it sure will make a difference. Let’s quickly talk about the list of best kajal in India that are my all time favorites.

Best kajal in India that are smudge proof and won’t ever irritate your eyes:

FACES MAGNET EYES KAJAL:facesmagneteyeskajal

Product Details: This is ultimately the best kajal in India on the budget. It is number one in my list for of course all the good reasons. I don’t know why I did not buy this for a very long time but it is now my go to kajal because it is so convenient to wear it every day.

Texture: The texture of the kajal is creamy and it glides on smoothly and does not irritate the eyes.

Packaging: It comes in a red twist up pencil form. I like it for the reason that you can easily differentiate it from other kajal pencils which are usually in black color.

Pigmentation: We all look out for a kajal that is highly pigmented. It’s quite dark.

Staying Power: It does stay for 5-6 hours which I feel is a good staying power. You can re touch when required. Just wait for few seconds after applying it as it is creamy in texture. Let it dry so that it does not smudge.

Price: It just comes for Rs 175. Quite reasonable for the quality it provides.
