I’ve been looking for an eyeliner that has staying power and a dramatic black effect, so I decided to try Kajal Khol as an eyeliner, because it is natural and I love the packaging!
Kajal was traditionally used in the middle east to protect the eyes from the harsh glaire from the sun and to provent sand getting into the eyes. In India it is not considered a cosmetic but as part of ayuverdic medicine to nourish and protect the eyes and encourages growth of the lashes. Khol has been used by the egyptions since 3100BC by queens and noble women and the traditional preperation of khol included sandalwood/Manjal karsilanganni, castor oil, ghee, Triphala, Rose, Almond oil which all have excellent effects on the skin and often used in Ayuverdic medicine. But as kajal became more comercially available, the natural ingredients became replaced with lead which has dangerious concenquences, so when purchasing your Kajal, it’s important that you find a safe natural made product. After some research, I ordered a Kajal from India by Shahnaz Husain, a popular make-up brand in India. It says on the packaging that it is not a cosmetic but an Ayuverdic medicine, which is a bonus because it is the best eyeliner I have ever used to get a dramatic black line and has great staying power and doesn’t smudge.
Once again, I’m sorry for the shitty pics. I think the problem is my shaky hands. I need a tripod or something.

I think this is going to be my last big haul for a while, I need to CHILL. I’m 90% sure the manager at Ulta was onto me, she followed me around the store for a while. She didn’t CS me but every time I turned around she was there fixing an endcap or something. I definitely felt like booking it would have been really sus though, so I browsed for another 15 minutes before buying a few smaller things. I was gonna hit up Old Navy and a few other places but Ulta freaked me out so I just left.
