I am a kajal person and I have been experimenting kajals with smudge proof quality and long lasting staying power. When Lakme Eyeconic Range came up with these qualities, I was waiting to try one. I could neither find Lakme kajal online nor in shops, still I don’t know why Lakme kajal disappear all of sudden. Who cares now! I bought the Lakme Eyeconic kajal 3 weeks before and now here is my review on it.
The new Eyeconic Kajal by Lakmé is literally iconic as all you need is one sweep of kajal and it lasts for 10 hours. The product is waterproof, it doesn’t smudge and it is even safe for the eyes since it is dermatologist tested.
- 10 hr stay
- Smudge proof
- Dermatologically tested
Price and Quanity:
Rs.199 for 0.35g
How to Use?:
On the upper lid, draw a neat stroke, starting from the inner corner of the eye and extending outwards. Repeat on lower lid.
- Ensure that the kajal tip is smooth and rounded for even application.
- For a super dramatic look, use along with Lakme Eyeconic Mascara.
How to Remove?:
Wipe with a cotton pad soaked with Lakme Absolute Bi-Phased Makeup Remover.
My Take on Lakme Eyeconic Kajal:
Packaging: Lakme Eyeconic kajal is a twist-up one and retracts back inside safely. It has a sleek body; I personally feel that it is so cute and very travel friendly.
Color, Texture & Pigmentation: I compared colossal kajal with lakme eyeconic kajal. I can say lakme has less intense black color compared to the colossal one. Lakme glides smoothly on upper and lower lash lines. But it doesn’t glide well on the waterline. I don’t why, I use much kajal on waterline and I miss this thing with Lakme Eyeconic. So overall, you need more swipes for an intense black color.
How it works: I tried Lakme Eyeconic kajal when before sleep at night, for testing though. I could see, it doesn’t smudge on my upper lash line, little on my lower lash line and by waterline it smudges a lot. It doesn’t sting my eyes and yes it’s true that it is dermatologically tested. The staying power is about 6 to 7 hours hardly and I feel it’s good compared to the colossal kajal. It will be good for daily use purpose and of course easy on a trip. Removing this kajal is such a pain; you will need a good cleanser to remove this kajal as it is waterproof.
- Staying power is too good, I may say 8 to 7 hours but not 10 though
- It is truly waterproof
- Doesn’t sting eyes at all and dermatologically tested
- Doesn’t smudges on upper and lower lash lines
- Good for oily lid babes
- Travel friendly and a cute twist up one
- Doesn’t go smooth on waterline
- You will need more swipes for an intense black shade
Makeup and Beauty Home Rating: 4/5
Do I Recommend?:
Yeah! All could try this one out. I cannot say that it is a great kajal but a decent one.
Would I Repurchase?:
No, it doesn’t go smooth on waterline and smudges a lot on lower lash line as I got watery lids. I am waiting to try the Lakme Satin kajal or and any other which satisfies my oily lids.
