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

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!
