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 ski…

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…

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018 Denim is forever. It's versatility makes it a classic and in the form of a jacket it not just looks dapper and en vogue but is also comfortable and convenient... I love denim jackets because they are perfect for Pune's so called Winters and because they are the best accessories for any kind of outfit...

Going through some of the Fall Winter 2017-18 collections from the likes of Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Stella McCartney, denim on denim seemed to be the trend in boxy and boyish silhouettes. I am not a very big fan of denim and denim and hence I prefer to pair my boxy denim jacket with a flowy, floral dress that makes the look strike a balance between feminine and androgynous.
