REVIEW: Lakme Eyeconic Kajal



Review of Lakme Eyeconic Kajal

Guest Post By: Marianne

There are those ‘fun’ products like funky nail polishes and show-stopping shades of lipstick that we like to indulge in, and then there are those basic must-haves like your kajal or favourite neutral shade of lipstick that you always have with you, which you keep repurchasing and which almost feel like a comforting old friend. The Lakme Eyeconic kajal could very well be one of the latter types of products for most women.
Lakme’s website says:
This is a smudge proof, water proof kajal which is dermatologically tested. With a deep black stroke in an easy twist up format, it gives your eyes a long-lasting, eyeconic look throughout the day.
Key Features - Smudge proof, Water Proof, Lasts up to 10 hrs, Safe for eyes, Convenient Twist- up format

The kajal scores high in the looks department – its sleek, black and turquoise retractable packaging is pretty and functional and the bits of kajal that inevitably get smeared on the outside of the tube don’t show up. The texture is really soft and creamy, much softer than other kajals I have tried. It goes on smooth and gives a nice dark colour. There may be other kajals that are darker but this one doesn’t leave you craving more pigmentation or anything. On the waterline I have to swipe it twice or thrice to get a sufficiently dark line but what I like is that it doesn’t tug at your eyes at all. I wear contact lens and I haven’t faced any problems at all with this kajal.

This is one of the rare products that do live up to their claims. Waterproof – check, it doesn’t fade with splashes of water; in fact, you need a good makeup remover, preferably something oil-based, to remove it completely. Smudgeproof – check. No amount of eye rubbing (come on, we all are guilty of it sometimes) is going to give you a black eye. Lasts up to 10 hours – well, there is a slight exaggeration does fade a little bit from the waterline after a few hours, say four or five, specially on the inner and outer corners. The good part is that it does not vanish completely and leave your eyes bare. Even after many hours, there is a good amount of product left and it stays there until you remove it. On the upper lashline it does stay for ten hours (or even more, depending on how oily your lids are), but it is essentially a kajal and not an eyeliner so the performance on the waterline is what counts!

Yayyy! –
  1. Soft texture
  2. Good pigmentation
  3. Great lasting power
  4. Decently priced
  5. Completely smudgeproof

Ummm... –
  1. Doesn’t really last for ten hours on the waterline
  2. Would have been nice if they mentioned the ingredients list too
  3. Takes a bit of work to get rid of the last bit of kajal from the eye (Okay I’m nitpicking here! I can’t find any other cons for this product!)

Price of Lakme Eyeconic Kajal

INR 199 for 0.35 g.

Will I repurchase?
Yes, I will be getting a backup even before I finish it.

This is a must-have, whether you wear kajal everyday or only for special occasions. I would recommend it to everyone – it’s a great quality product at a very decent price. Go get one now, if you haven’t already!


  1. Sounds good, vl definitely try this in future!

  2. Its reminds me of d day...wen I was at a store where I had to make a choice between mayebellin colossal kajal & lakme eyeconic kajal...was cnfused nd picked d mayebellin colossal....disappointing it was :( hate dat!!!!!! :-/
    bt nw...m definitely gonna give a try to dis1..sounds gud :) :) :)

    1. I was also pretty disappointed by it! It refused to go back in when I twisted it up fully and then it broke... :( this is definitely better!

  3. I have been using this one. I like it better than maybelline colossal

  4. You know Marianne I have always used the Maybelline Colossal Kajal... But reading your review I think its time I finally tried the Lakme Eyeconic Kajal out!
    Great review :)

    1. I was okay with Colossal when I was using it...but after this one came out I like it much better! U should give it a try. I'm thinking of maybe getting the new version of Colossal to see how it fares. And thank youuuuuuu ! :D

  5. My only issue with Colossal is that it used to break. It used to take off tiny chunks of the stick while applying it to the eye. Eyeconic is so much better in that area. I have been in love with Eyeconic ever since I first applied it.

  6. Yep...Eyeconic is much softer and glides better...I feel it is darker than Colossal too!

  7. Not the darkest black, but truly one of the longest lasting kajals

  8. Lakme eyeconic is a goon one...... its a lasting as well as dark also....

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.
