REVIEW: Lakme Eyeconic Mascara

Review of Lakme Eyeconic Mascara

Guest Post By: Marianne

As much as I love lining my eyes and feel my look is incomplete without a swipe of kajal, I am guilty of neglecting what makeup gurus say is the single most important step in makeup – mascara! I have started testing the waters though and am now realising the difference mascara makes to the eyes. The Lakme Eyeconic mascara needs no introduction of course, with the grand entrance it made into the market some months back.

I like the packaging – all sleek and attractive-looking with the shiny black tube and blue letters. No ingredient list is mentioned, though. The mascara wand is long and has a bent brush. I find it quite easy to apply the mascara on the inner lashes as well as the lower lashes. It takes slightly longer to dry so you have to be a little careful – no batting eyelashes for a couple of minutes unless you want black splotches around your eyes. It gives a nice defined look to the lashes. It, however, doesn’t give much volume, no matter how many coats you apply. The good thing is that however much you layer it on, it does not clump at all. I also feel it adds a bit of length, especially to my lower lashes.

The bad – it does not deliver much of a curl to my naturally straight lashes. I wouldn’t normally count this as a con, but with claims of being a curling mascara, I expected it to curl the lashes well and hold the curl for at least a few hours, but nope, it fails there. The mascara is not waterproof, which means no struggling to get it off your lashes at the end of the day, but if you happen to be caught in a sudden outbreak of rains or emotions, you’d have two black streams running down your face (happened with me). I do not wear mascara on an everyday basis so I personally prefer using a waterproof one – I’ll take the slight difficulty of removal over the risk of having black eyes any day!

Yay! –
Decent pricing
Defines lashes
Easy to remove (comes off easily with water)

Nay! –
Does not provide much volume
Does not give a good curl (for me at least)
Not waterproof

Price of the Lakme Eyeconic Mascara

INR 250 (9 ml).

Will I repurchase?
If they come out with a waterproof version of this, yes; otherwise I probably won’t.

The Lakme Eyeconic mascara is a decent option for an everyday mascara. Get it if you want something that gives a little definition to your lashes and are not too particular about the volume or about your mascara being waterproof. If you want a heavy lashes look, this one is not for you.

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :) Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;) Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal

Changes in my Skincare and Fitness Perspective Post 30

Changes in my Skincare and Fitness Perspective Post 30 #Adulting One early morning while I was sipping an exceptionally strong cup of coffee and introspecting I identified a few lifestyle changes that I had incorporated in the past year or so. On further retrospection I realised that these changes were a part of what I perceived would be good for me in the long run... When did I start thinking about my health in the future? When did I start worrying about how my skin would be 10 years down the line? OMG was I #Adulting? Is this even the correct usage of the latest hashtag?

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

  Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener  Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work... Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!
