I am finally reviewing the Lakme eyeconic curling mascara. Believe me or not, I have taken the pictures and completed the basic write up almost a month back and due to some bad spirit it just kept postponing. Anyways here it is now.
Being blessed with lashes I am very much satisfied about, all I look for in my daily wear mascara is some decent curling effect. I don’t like volumizing or lengthening ones for work. They are very distracting.
When I saw this product being launched into the market with the “curling” tag, I couldn’t help trying it.
Price: INR. 250/- for 9 ml.
Packing: Comes in the black and blue “eyeconic” carton sheet packing. The mascara bottle is thin, long and curved.
Applicator/wand: The mascara wand is also curved in order to impart better curl to the lashes. The wand is thin when compared with the other ones I have been using lately. The wand aids application of mascara even to the innermost lashes.
The stem of the wand is very long and feels quite comfortable in coating the lower lashes.
Barrel: There is no washer or any kind of restrictions to remove the excess product from the wand. The wand comes out covered with excess product especially the tip of the applicator. You need to use a tissue to get rid of it
It has a creamy - gooey formula and it gets thicker as the product ages.
The product does not claim to be waterproof and it is not. I prefer washable ones for daily use.
The mascara defines my lashes and curls them well. If you have some natural curl to your lashes, then the mascara will prettify it even more. But if your lashes are pretty straight, am not sure if it would curl that impressively and hold it.
The formula takes an abnormally long time to dry.
The formula feels heavy on my lashes and keeps reminding me of its presence throughout the day.
It clumps. And, in long, fanned out lashes, it does not look flattering.
It does not impart any volume (it does not claim either). I know it looks pretty dramatic on my lashes but almost all mascaras do.

Maniac’s rating: 3/5
Considering the price, it is decent everyday mascara. It does what it claims ie., darkening and curling the lashes. Though it clumps, I guess we can manage it with a lash separator.
I will not repurchase as I prefer my mascaras to feel light on my lashes.
