Lakme eyeliner review

When it comes to affordable quality makeup products, Lakme is one of the most popular age-old brands we look out for. Yes, today I will be reviewing the Lakme eyeliner.

Lakme actually has some products, that give the best quality finish at amazing prices and this product is definitely one of them.

About the product:

The product comes in a small glass container, very similar to the packaging of Lakme true wear nail polish, and the applicator is a thin brush, but it’s quality varies. Like in the last bottle I purchased, I received a faulty brush with unevenly ended bristles, but this one has really even bristles which adds even more perfection to the look.

Product description, claims and usage directions:

The deep intense color of this Lakme eyeliner accentuates your eye makeup and adds a dash of dramatic beauty and glamour to them.

My take on this product:

Initially, in the earlier years, I had always thought that application of eyeliner with a felt tip applicator is so much easier as compared to that of a thin or angled brush. But, this one product broke my myth. Application with this applicator is so easy, that every time I get the perfect finish without the need of any corrections in between.

This Lakme eyeliner gives a jet black pigmentation and a complete matte finish (which doesn’t crack or peel) very similar to that of any high end matte eyeliner.

One feature, which might be a con for some, though it’s a pro for me, is that, it is not waterproof. I had bought this amazing , yet  inexpensive eyeliner for daily wear and hence I prefer it not being waterproof. Being said that, it doesn’t really go off with just water, and if you try doing so, you will end up creating panda eyes.😂😂😂

If not a make-up remover, then at least, your regular ctm routine will be enough for its removal which includes cleansing, following up by removal with a cotton pad soaked in any toner for a squeaky clean finish.

I would give it a thumbs up 👍 for:

  • Very affordable
  • Great packaging
  • Great applicator
  • Travel friendly
  • Perfect matte finish
  • No peeling or cracking
  • Easily available
  • Jet black pigmentation
  • Smudge proof
  • Quantity given is much more than other eyeliners

I would give it a thumbs down 👎 for:

  • Not an organic formulation

How much would I rate it out of 5:

5 out of 5
