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.

Cover The Cover: Harper's Bazaar (India) March 2012

You all know that I love tweaking my blog here and there and making some changes, introducing newer features and well sometimes just hooking the blog onto some social networking site :) Well this time I am introducing a new feature that I promise will be really exciting for all beauty enthusiasts :) To start with this feature is called "Cover The Cover" where I shall be covering the cover pages of our favorite beauty and fashion magazines in terms of make-up. There are times when a certain look on a celeb or a fashion mag just gets to us. Well rather than just mulling over such looks I have decided to give life to such looks (on me) and well do a kind of a faux photo shoot ;) What say? Doesn't it sound like fun? What more? You are all invited to submit your looks with a reference to which magazine and edition you are covering and I'll post it here :)

Today's look is inspired by my latest fav mag Harper's Bazaar. The March edition of Harper's Bazaar is a …

Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...

Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…

REVIEW & LOTD: Faces Long Wear Pencil in Navy Blue

While doing the "Meet The Bloggers" feature every Saturday, I have realised (and I am sure that you all have too) that Faces is fast becoming a very popular brand amongst us especially the Faces Long Wear pencils. So much so that a lot of people prefer Faces Long Wear pencils to even Colorbar I-Glides and that ladies and gentlemen is quite a feat for a newly launched brand. So anyways, I got myself a "Navy Blue" from this range and I must say that I am very happy with it. This is my second pencil from Faces after "Turquoise Blue" and well it hasn't failed me either.
This particular shade is a beautiful deep blue that looks stunning on the eye lids.
