I love being approached by brands I’m yet to discover. As nice as it might be to work with the bigger beauty brands out there (It’s every blogger’s dream, right?), it’s also great to get the chance to try some products that you may of other wise never tried. So, when I was asked if I wanted to try out the gorgeous kajals from Soultree, a natural, organic brand hailing from India, I obviously said yes.
The Soultree Ayurvedic Kajals* are handmade using a 3000 year old Ayurvedic recipe process. They combine carbon black collected from vegetable oil lamps with organic ghee, natural mineral colours and almond oil to create vibrant colours.
You can use these kajals as both an eyeliner and eyeshadow, so I decided to go for Cold Black for liner and Rich Loam to use as an eyeshadow. Cold Black is described as a ‘creamy charcoal black with a more intense cooling effect’ and Rich Loam ‘a musky brown with a glowing shimmer great for making your eyes luminous.
In my opinion, these kajals definitely work better as liners than they do eyeshadows. Rich Loam, when blended, doesn’t look as appealing as it does in the swatch below, but when used as a base underneath other bronze-like shadows such as On and On Bronze from Maybelline, it’s really gorgeous. I will definitely see what this is like as a liner!
When it comes to applying eyeliner on the top lids, I’m absolutely useless. When I saw the shape of these, I was definitely intrigued to see if I could finally nail it. And I have to say, I did a pretty good job. This shape makes it so easy! I also think it helps that I’m not terrified of poking myself in the eye with a liquid liner😂. Cold Black lasted all day and did not budge once, very impressive!
I definitely want to try more of these! They have such fun, vibrant colours on offer but Copper Tint is the one I want the most. I’m also intrigued by the Transparent kajal which leaves a glossy finish and helps cool and soothe the eyes.
Would you try these kajals? Which colours would you go for?
