Lakme Black Satin Kajal Review

I like kajals and based on positive reviews, I selected this Lakme Satin Kajal as the first kajal for me. I definitely use kajal daily but not traditional kajals. I use eye liners and not too close to my waterline. Now coming back to this one, this kajal is very pigmented and gives a good definition to eyes with minimal effort. You can have a thin line close to your waterline or you can make a wider for a glamorous look.  It is thick, intense and gives a jet black color with one stroke. It gives a nice glossy finish and glides on very smoothly. It doesn’t cause any irritation to me.
Lakme Satin Kajal
After so many good reviews about it, I wanted this to work for me too. But for me, being oily skinned, this kajal has not been very helpful. It smudges for me L. It started giving me raccoon eyes after 1 hour of application. After 3-4 hours, kajal was nowhere to see on my waterline but leftovers near the surrounding areas of eyes were there.
