Kajal Eyeliner Cones- Natural Kohl Indian Eyeliner

Kajal is mainly made with a combination of natural ingredients and soot. It is organic in nature, making it soothing for the eye, it also helps protect eyes from infections. The purpose of applying kajal originally was to protect eyes from the sun glare as the darkening around eyelids provided relief.

Kajal is the term used in parts of India—that’s the name in Hindi—but it’s roughly the same stuff that’s called surma, kehal, khôl, or kohl in other parts of the world, and it existed for thousands of years before Bara. Ancient recipes call for the grinding of various pigments to be stored in a bottle then applied with a wand or by hand.

With its sloping shape, a kajal-inspired pencil—which loosely resembles a lipstick bullet—is meant to be used sideways, with room for experimentation. Using the tip gets you a thin but pigment-rich line, while the wide edges can be dragged across the whole eyelid.
