Crazy, busy schedule today with my toddler in tow the entire time, so I’m keeping things light and easy!
After watching Sex and the City 2, I decided to bust out the same kajal pencil that Carrie uses in the film. It’s the real deal and it is INTENSE! This kajal is waterproof, but still be prepared to be amazed when it’s still on the rims of your eyes at the end of the day!

You can purchase the Kajal on Ebay very cheaply. Search for “Hashmi Kajal”. Here’s a link to one vendor.
If you are concerned about lead, here’s an excellent alternative that I have in my makeup collection – it’s a kajal bullet by Styli Style, and it works great, too!
I’m glad someone mentioned something about lead, because I had heard about it a while back. As far as the lead issue goes, I believe it’s a case of personal comfort. I would never advise anyone to use something that they wouldn’t feel comfortable using.
A report came out a few years ago telling people to avoid buying kajal from overseas, including this brand. The company that manufactures the kajal claims there is a minute amount of lead in the kajal and it is not dangerous.
Of course, lead DOES show up in other cosmetics items many of us use on a daily basis. Here’s an interesting article via Snopes on lead in lipstick.
As far as myself, yes, I will continue to use Hashmi Kajal, but only on the occassions I feel the need to get an intense smokey eye on.
