So we are all obsessed with eye liners aren’t we? Eyes speaks a thousand ways as they say, and every girl wants her eyes to look beautiful as she expresses herself the most through her eyes.
It is not just today but girls have always particularly loved to enhance the eyes. It all started with simple kajal which was homemade with charcoal.

The truth about the branded eyeliners!
Though all the brands of eyeliners claim that the products used are all natural, it really isn’t so. The fact is that the ingredients are not really controlled by the FDA therefore it simply means that anything could go into it. Ingredients that could react with your skin too and for that matter even carcinogens and yes, do not forget the fragrance! The fragrance quotient is infused by usually very dangerous products, that is why most of the time the company does not reveal that ingredient claiming to protect the secrecy of ‘the secret ingredient’.
