Hashmi Kajal

Alright, so all of us have been caught up with the controversies of this Hashmi Kajal. When i saw this on Urban Touch, i was so excited that this brand was from Pakistan, well, i had to get my hands on it, and im aware of how Pakistanis and Arab women get those dark gorgeous eyes,  i thought- this must be what they use. Dint take long to see how some girls started posting things about how hashmi has been banned because of the lead content in it. I got so paranoid and started with my research. And this was what i found- There are studies to prove that Hashmi is safe. Hashmi makes a powder eyeliner which consists of 50% lead sulfide( the less poisonous form of lead) And the stick and cream presentations are made of amorphous carbon, which are safe to use on   your eyes. Phew!!! relief right. But im still not so happy about this.

 So i bought both the Kajal stick as well as the Kajal tube. 
 About Hashmi Kajal Tube:

You wont understand anything because its all in arabic. The colour is a intense black,  looks pretty good when you use it initially ,unfortunately within no time it begins to smudge . It costs Rs.40/-  Got it for Rs.34/- on Urban Touch. This is what it looks like with one swipe on my hand.   Application is easy, it comes with a probe as u can see in the image above.

About The Kajal Stick: 

I did not like it, its dry and rough and hurts the eyes. Again costs Rs.40/- too. The colour is not all that dark. I prefer the tube to the stick. This is the swatch of the kajal stick, the first line was with 2 swipes of the stick and the thick line was when i scribbled on my hand rubbing it around 10-12 times :P




To my personal Experience with Hashmi, I don't think its worth buying, If you really want to try it out, you can buy the tube.   And Yes, i somehow still have the fear of that little chance of lead being in the kajal. I dont want to be a victim of lead poisoning.

  2. As, per to my research over it many of the women did not really like the final outcome. Anyways, be a little cautious of the fake products. They are all over the place.

  4. Hi, I've got the powder one and it says in the instructions to apply into the eye. I'm not convinced this has been translated properly. haha. How do you use it? Just like a normal eyeliner?
