Hello Ladies, this is gonna be a quick review in depth review of this Kajal from Sugar cosmetics. I got this Kajal, in the shade 'Still Got The Blues' in the April Fab Bag. I'm loving this shade and after the first use itself, I feel that this is a promising product. Before we head on to the review, let's hear what the brand has to say about this product.
Let your eyes do all the talking with SUGAR Twist And Shout Fadeproof Kajal! Just twist the easy applicator and rim your eyes with its intense formula and you're good to take on the world. With a specially-designed anti-slip grip gives you a super-steady hold, its creamy consistency & preservatives-free formula makes it suitable for the waterline as well as the lash line. This high-performance multi-use product combines the benefits of a kajal with those of a gel eyeliner and does not fade or smear for more than 10 hours! Available in 2 intense shades:
- The key to breath-taking smokey eyes, Black Velvet creates depth and intensity like no other black kajal
- A true blue that looks fabulous on all skin tones, Still Got The Blues is edgy yet incredibly classy at the same time
Benefits: A single product with the power of two, this power-packed kajal is enough to create the eye makeup look you desire whether you want to keep it simple or dramatic. It gives a velvety finish that is long-lasting & completely fade-proof so you can enjoy the night (or day) and not worry about smears or smudges.

My Take on it:
The shade is amazing! The blue comes of deep and pigmented on my dark skin. It gives off a slightly pearlescent effect but it not overly so. I have used it on my upper eyelid as well as on the waterline and haven't faced any irritation or reddening. Usually, coloured Kajals irritate my eyes when used on the waterline but this one feels normal on my eyes.
I love the creamy formula of the kajal but I'm afraid that it's too creamy. When applying for the first time, a small part of the tip broke off. This saddened me but as soon as I laid eyes on the Blue shade, I perked up. It is best to expose little quantity at a time when using.
In my opinion, the specially-designed anti-slip grip area is actually a bit more slippery than the rest of the pen. The same texture/material of the rest of the pen would have been much better. If this had been for an aesthetic reason, then it looks nice, I suppose.
I tested it out yesterday and found that it lasts at least 9 hours, after that I lost track of it. This is quite surprising, considering the creamy consistency of the Kajal. There was very little smudging and the color stayed true for the entire time.
Here's the hand swatch of Sugar Twist and Shout Fadeproof Kajal.
Here's a comparison of the shade with Colorbar I-Glide eye pencil in 'Electra' and Maybelline Vivid & Smooth Liner in 'Ocean Blue'.
The Sugar Kajal is most vivid amongst the three.
The price is this Kajal is more than the popular ones like Lakme Eyeconic, Loreal Paris Kajal Magique and Maybelline's Colossal Kajal.
- Lasts at least 9 hours
- Amazing shade
- Does not irritate the eyes
- Glides smoothly
- Suitable for the waterline
- Minimal smudging
- No fading
- It is free of mineral oil, preservatives, paraffin & parabens (Took this from the website)
- Pricier than the popular and good ones.
- The tip breaks easily
- The specially-designed anti-slip grip area doesn't offer superlative grip
The price of this Kajal is on the higher side, no doubt about that, but I'm utterly in love with this shade and the positives outweighs the negative. So, I believe that this particular shade/Kajal is worth the buy.
Love to hear your thought on this, so comment below and make my day 🙂
