Review: Biotique Botanicals Bio Kaajal Nourishing and Conditioning Eye Liner

While I typically review products from the U.S., I am always curious about natural beauty routines in other countries. I recently had the opportunity to try an affordable eyeliner made in India. Biotique Botanicals makes a Bio Kaajal Nourishing and Conditioning Eye Liner, which comes in a very deep black.

  • True, deep black
  • Smudges well
  • Ayurvedic formula
  • Soft texture applies easily
  • Affordable
  • May be harder to sharpen near bottom
This eyeliner applies more like a soft crayon, and smudges well. It may smudge a little too well, in some cases, as it can migrate to your eyelids if you use too much. Some reviewers use it in their waterline, but I tested it on my upper eyelids. It lasted about 6-8 hours without an eye shadow primer. The liner itself is shaped a bit like a conical crayon, so I'm not sure how you'd sharpen it at the bottom. Perhaps you could apply the last of the product with an angled eyeliner brush. I had a hard time running this on the EWG Skin Deep database, as many ingredients didn't have information available. The few that did came out at a low 0, but I didn't feel that there was enough data to give an accurate rating. If you're interested in trying a new type of eyeliner that has been designed to be gentle, this may be worth a try.

Also available on Amazon.com.
