Maybelline Kajal VS Lakme Kajal
The two most used Kajals in India are Maybelline Colossal Kajal and Lakme Kajal if I take drugstore barnds into consideration. I believe there is not one woman in the country that has not used the Lakme Kajal at least once and since the Colossal Kajal is so hyped and raved about, I think it is the same with Maybelline Colossal kajal as well!

I personally consider the Lakme Kajal to be the best budget kajal and that is a completely personal choice.
I am testing two of these most used kajal from Maybelline and Lakme on a few grounds and let us see how these perform.

Longevity-          
Maybelline Colossal Kajal (MCK):- Stays for 4-5 hours on the waterline and stays on the eyelids for almost the whole day without smudging.
Lakme Kajal (LK):- Stays for 3-4 hours on the waterline and stays on the eyelids for the whole day but gets smudged. 

Finish-
MCK:- Is less pigmented than the Lakme Kajal and has no shine or glossiness.
LK: - A very dark glossy black finish. 

Smudging -
MCK:- Smudges slightly when rubbed
LK:- Smudges a lot when rubbed.

Texture -
MCK:- Dry and rough texture.

Application -
MCK:- Not very easy to apply.
LK:- Extremely easy to apply. Practically glides on my waterline.

MCK:- Needs to be removed with a makeup remover.
LK:- Needs to be removed with a makeup remover.

Comfort –
MCK:-  Burns my eyes when applied on water line.
LK:-  Doesn’t burn my eyes when on waterline. 

Price –
MCK:- 199 INR for 0.35g
LK:-  50 INR  for 2g

Wastage –
MCK:- The bullet of kajal breaks sometimes and gets messy.
LK:-  Pencil has to be sharpened but the wastage is okay given the quantity. 

***I skipped out on testing how water proof these two are  but if you would like to know that let me know in the comments and I will update that as well. 

So, I like Lakme Kajal for my everyday use, especially when I am in a hurry and Maybelline when I know I am going to be out for a long time and need the kajal to last a long time.
Which one would you pick for your everyday use??
