REVIEW: Lakme Eyeconic Kajal - Green

ISLM Writer: Sanchita

Black liner, black kajal and black eyeshadow – sounds monotonous, eh? Well, thank the Heavens for beautiful colored liners. My new-found love are the Lakme Eyeconic Kajal which I bought in bulk for the festive and wedding season. These were launched way back in the day but those days my obsession was mostly black so I didn’t pay much heed to these. Today I am going to review the shade green which looks quite exquisite on the eyes too! Read on to know more about the color.

My Experience with Lakme Eyeconic Kajal

The packaging is very similar to the other eyeconic pencils. The same sleek black body with click lock cap that it totally fuss free and easy to travel with. As I own too many of them, it is very difficult to spot the color in a hurry. The color name is written in very small letter in the lower portion of the pencil. One good thing about this is that they are retractable and you won’t have to sharpen and ensures no wastage of the product at all.

The color is very pretty. Although they named it ‘green’ it isn’t green in true sense. It is like teal mixed with deep emerald green without a flick of shimmer or glitter. It is completely matte and safe for waterline, eyelids and literally everywhere on the eyes. The color is extremely rich and intense and comes out very pretty on eyes especially if you have brown eyes.

The texture of the kajal is creamy and smooth. It glides as smoothly as it can be and without any bump. The creamy gel effect stays for few minutes and then it gets settled into a nice matte finish without being dry or cakey on the eyelids. The pigmentation is also worth praising. With a single swipe on my eyelids it gives a rich pigmented color. For my water lids it requires 2-3 swipe which is quite regular as any kajal.

The staying power, as mentioned by the brand, 10hrs is totally overstated in my opinion. It is definitely long lasting on my eyes but I wouldn’t call that 10hrs. It stayed on my waterline for 4-5hours and after that it fades slightly as my eyes are watery. On the eyelids it remained intact for around 8hrs and slowly started fading. For tight line, it remains around 8hrs only.

The formula smudge proof and water proof is true to a large extent. It doesn’t budge at all with water or soap. Having said that, removal is difficult as you need a very good eye makeup remover to remove the color completely. It remains smudge proof in winter but in summer it smudges slightly after 6-7hours due to oil and sweat.

Pros of Lakme Eyeconic Kajal

  1. Sleek black retractable and travel friendly packaging.
  2. Pretty teal-emerald green matte shade.
  3. Creamy smooth texture.
  4. Smudge proof and waterproof.
  5. Color is rich, intense and highly pigmented.
  6. Staying power is pretty long, around 10hrs.
  7. Reasonable price tag.

Cons of Lakme Eyeconic Kajal

Overall Rating:

RECOMMENDATION – This is going to be my HG green kajal until I stumble upon something pretty like this within 250/- bucks. I would highly recommend the color for Indian complexions and especially for those who have brown eyes. It does bring out the best in 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.
