If you have been reading my blog, you already know that I am slowly switching over to clean beauty(read more about it here). While replacing skincare products has been fairly easy for me, finding clean makeup brands is another challenge altogether. We barely have any options in India and what is available is mostly restricted to lipsticks and kajals. I came across this Bon Organics eyeliner and decided to give it a try since I am already in love with their products.
Now in a new packaging with a cute mirror! We proudly present a new & improved liner cum kajal that is a more intense black & absolutely grain-free! We have used the traditional over-the-oil-lamp method with a special touch of Bon. Our eyeliner cum kajal is a gift in itself as it not only enhances & defines your eyes but will also nourish the skin and hair follicles in the eye area! This craft is handmade, natural & organic. It can be used as eyeliner & Kajal. And all of this is without clogging the pores!
Price: Rs.495 for 8 grams
Availability: only on their website
Shelf life: 1 year

My Experience using Bon Organics Eyeliner:
While I am not a huge fan of this product, I keep using the Bon Organics eyeliner for its ingredient list. Like, have you ever seen such clean ingredient list on a makeup product? Coz I haven’t! Its handmade with organic ingredients that would nourish your lashes and help them grow if you wear it daily.
Coming to its efficacy as makeup, it does a decent job. The Bon Organics eyeliner needs 2-3 swipes for that jet black colour on eyelids. It lasts about 4-5 hours and then starts fading slowly. It’s not smudge-proof but won’t give you racoon eyes either. You can just wipe it off completely with a tissue. Now I haven’t tried it on my waterline as a kajal, but I am pretty sure based on its performance as an eyeliner that it won’t work well as a kajal too.
I have super oily eyelids with slightly droopy upper lids so the liner transfers to upper lids often. So if you have oily/droopy eyelids, you may want to avoid this one. You can’t wear this for special occasions at all due to all the smudging and transferring. Also, if you prefer a jet black eyeliner, you may not be satisfied with its colour payoff. Overall, it is an average eyeliner and there is much room for improvement in its formula.

The Bon Organics eyeliner is okay for everyday use if you don’t mind reapplying it during the day. Definitely not for oily or droopy upper lids. Only buy it if you are looking for an eyeliner without any synthetic chemicals.
