Nykaa EyeM Black Kajal Review

I am totally a kajal person. As Indian women, we all loved the jet black heavy kajal eye look for no reason either everyday usage or for a special occasion. Recently I was in search for a jet black longlasting gel-based kajal and my search ended with kajal from the house of Nykaa and the product is Nykaa EyeM Black Kajal.

This is a perfect jet black kajal, it easily glides on eye’s waterline and on the eyelid which gives you an intense jet black finish in just one swipe.

I already tried Nykaa’s EyeM Bold Kajal, EyeM 24×7 Kajal and Nykaa Rock the line kajal. But this one is different. Very creamy, smooth, velvety texture and also very soft. You can easily smudge it for a smokey look. It takes a 2-3 minute to settle down on eyes. My eyes are not watery that’s why this kajal stays a long time on my waterline but who have watery eyes they can truly tell us proper timing about staying power of this Nykaa kajal on the watery water line.

Nykaa EyeM Black Kajal Price: Rs/-375 for 1.2 gm of product

Shelf Life: 3 years from manufacturing date

How To Apply Gel Kajal Pencil:

Applying kajal properly and beautifully is an art. Kajal is one of my most favourite makeup product for all time. Without kajal my look is incomplete. In this particular topic how to apply kajal, I already wrote a post elaborately on my website. You can check this…

How I am Wearing This Nykaa Kajal:

Nykaa EyeM Black Kajal is a gel kajal pencil, that’s why it is very creamy and soft. Due to that reason the tip of the kajal pencil breaks easily and smudges if you did not set it. This is great if you want to create smokey eye makeup with a kohl pencil. Once you set this kajal with any black eyeshadow it stays for the very long time. In my eyes, it stays up to 4 to 5 hours without the kajal set it because my eyes are not watery. After setting with eyeshadow it stays up to 7 to 8 hours easily. If you like traditional kajal eye look then this one is one of the best options. You can see in the picture below that I am applying this Nykaa kajal pencil on my both lower and upper eyelid and on the waterline.

Tips: Apply gently to avoid breakages of the kajal pencil tip.

My Experience With the Nykaa EyeM Black Gel Kajal Pencil:

I love wearing kajal and this kohl is just beautiful jet black creamy one. Deep dark, smooth texture and it’s looking very pretty on my eyes. It will show its darkness in a single layer. I bought this particular Nykaa kajal first-time and now I am a fan of this kajal. Believe me, this Nykaa Kajal is one of the very pigmented gel kajal. And also you can use it for both upper and lower eyelids.

If you follow me on Instagram the then you can see I am using this Nykaa black kajal on my eyes in all Durga puja look. The very smooth and jet black colour makes the eyes so attractive.

Pros And Cons Of The Nykaa EyeM Black Kajal:


  1. Super pigmented jet black kohl pencil
  2. Very smooth, creamy and buttery soft
  3. Easily glides on eyes
  4. Longlasting but after setting it with black eyeshadow
  5. Very handy packaging
  6. A good quality sharpener comes along with the kajal
  7. Easy to create smokey eye makeup


  1. This Nykaa EyeM Black kajal comes in a pencil form. Personally, I do not like this type of packaging for kajal. Because when sharp pencil with sharpener then wastes too much product.
  2. Gel-based kajal that’s why it very soft and tips of the kajal pencil easily break
  3. Some times of it smudge-proof and long-lasting. If you have watery eyes then definitely you set it with any black eyeshadow. Otherwise, it smudges and makes your eyes Panda Eyes.

Overall My Opinion About This Nykaa EyeM Black Kajal: 

In my opinion, it is an amazing kajal pencil which glides easily on eyes very smoothly and stays on for a few hours and super pigmented. Loved it … But my favourite from the house of Nykaa EyeM 24×7 Kajal Eyeliner For sure recommended this kajal. Girls who love kajal you should definitely have this in your makeup collection.
