Oriflame often releases seasonal and otherwise themed collections of makeup and other beauty products. For some reason I haven’t a single kajal from their main line, but have six from various limited edition releases.
Pretty sure that these are about the same quality as others, though perhaps longevity and pigmentation could differ from colour to colour.
The shades I own are, in order pictured:
- Savannah Sky 17083
- Deep Green 26528
- Green Jungle 17084
- Magic Ivory 26527
- Medina Brown 23435
- Mystic Purple 26529
And here they are swatched, in the same order, left to right, top to bottom:
Some of these were very quick to dry out and fall out of their tubes. It’s easy to put them back in, thankfully, but not as easy to draw a precise line with, since they’ve become shaky. Once you insert them back not using the grooves they hold a little better, but not for long. It’s still possible to use them as a shadow or as a thick eyeliner.
The longevity of these is practically non-existent. Depending on the condition of my skin, sometimes they don’t last long enough for me to even finish my makeup. They crease in minutes and never fully dry, so if you plan to use this as an eyeliner, know that it will leave a mark under your brown whenever you blink.
Keep in mind, though, that I’ve got oily skin, so this might be a contributor too.
I haven’t used these much as you can see by the state of them. The purple is the one I’ve used the most so far. It goes well with my purple shadow palette. Like mentioned above, though, they don’t hold well, so I restrict their use for short trips out of the house.
The ivory one looks like a good shade to use in the inner eye corner for brightening. It could also be used on the waterline for a similar purpose, but since it’s got a bit of a fine glitter in it, I wouldn’t recommend using it that way.
As you can see in the photo below, the decoration on the packaging, especially the ivory coloured ones, rubbed off very fast. The plastic the packaging is made from overall feels rather cheap and flimsy. I think if I carried these around with me, they’d break fast.
The pigmentation and colour payoff of these is great, though. They also blend relatively well, especially for a cream shadow/ liner. These kajals are affordable, too, so if your goal is to experiment with different kinds of kajal colour, then these will work. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend them for longevity and staying power. This is the only reason I haven’t been using them as often as I would like.
