    19 Reasons Every Brown Girl Is In A Committed Relationship With Kajal

    Here's the one thing all desi girls can see eye-to-eye about.

    1. Kajal makes your side-eyes and eye-rolls a thousand times more effective.


    Instant sass.

    2. And your every look a smouldering look.

    7. It's become such a big part of your identity that people think you look sad when you go without it.

    "You look tired..."

    8. Kohl has consistently been with you through all of life's important moments.


    From the day you went grocery shopping to your wedding day.

    9. "Eyebrows on fleek" means squat to you if your eyes aren't rimmed with kohl.

    10. You've tried several brands and know exactly which one won't budge and which one makes you look like a raccoon.

    11. But you have that one brand you swear by and buy multiple tubes of in case you run out or it's discontinued.



    12. Sometimes you're running really late and consider skipping the kajal. But no...

    I'd rather be late by two more minutes.

    13. A perfectly swished liner can make your day and you're not afraid to appreciate other people's wings either.

    14. These two black lines can do more for your self esteem than anything else.


    15. If you make the mistake of falling asleep without removing it, get ready to wake up looking possessed.


    16. And if your kajal is any good, it won't come off without the help of a few weapons of kohl destruction.

    18. Until you wake up and put it on again and can't get over your own beauty.

    19. Because you know your looks can kill when you have kaali kaali aankhen.
