So how is 2014 treating you?
Today I am reviewing the brown colored pencil from the newly launched shades of Lakme eyeconic liners. I love brown liners very much. Brown liners help in breaking the kohl addiction. On days when I don’t want to line my eyes with kohl, I use brown eyeliner. It looks understated when compared to black kohl and does not make me look sick.
When I swatched all the colors from the range, I immediately fell in love with this brown. It was intense and looked good.
Priced at Rs. 250/-, It comes packed in the standard eyeconic eyeliner packing with the directions and tips mentioned in the carton sheet. The pencil is just like the black one. The only difference they have is, in the brown pencil the name of the color is mentioned in the end of the pencil. It would have been great if they opted for color coded casings like how they did for the white one.
The texture of the pencil is very smooth, creamy and pigmented. Due to its texture, it glides on the lids like butter. The eyeliner did not seem too fragile. I did not experience any breakage.
The color is dark brown and pigmentation is very intense. The pigmentation looks equally intense when I lined it on my waterline.
On my eyelids, it stays intact till I remove it with a remover. Yes it stays true to its claim when lined on eyelids. I applied it at 9 and it was still intact when I got home by 7. (I do not have oily lids) It is waterproof and smudge proof. The best part is it retains the freshly applied look for a long time.
This product did not sting my water line and did not feel heavy or dry. It stays for 3-4 hours on my waterline after which it settles on the lash line and between the lower lashes. It does not spread or make you look as if you have horrible dark circles.
On my eyes:
Removal is a pain as baby oil or a good quality remover is required to completely get rid of the product.
Maniac’s rating: 5/5
I love the quality of this pencil and I will definitely repurchase this one for its pigmentation and gorgeous brown color.
Hope you girls loved my review.
