Since time immoral, Kajal has always been associated with Indian women.It’s a known to be a staple beauty products for us.I still have my infant picture with deep kohl smeared eyes which was supposed to be have medicinal value like improving vision.But now for me it has become a necessity. I just can’t cross my threshold with kohl in my eyes.
So when I heard Lakme has launched some new coloured kajal in their Eyeconic series , I just had to get my hands on them before anybody else.Yes i have a compulsive disorder.It’s been in my vanity for two weeks now but couldnt able to write a review before.But better late than never.
The packaging is similar to the black and white eyeconic.Honestly i was super disappointed with the white one.It just didn’t budge and consistency is very poor.That was the reason I was a bit putoff to buy all the three coloured eyeconics.Regal green, Royal blue and Turquoise.But in the end my innerself Goddess won.At 275 INR, its not a very expensive deal.
Regal Green and Turquoise have a very light difference in shades.As you apply on your eyes, it looks almost the same.But the best part is you can apply them on your lower lid like kohl(as it is called) and it would not look odd.Wonderful breather from black kohl.
I love playing with them.If you follow me on instagram, you will see lots of eotd’s on my page.You can either use them as simple eyeliner, can create a smudged eye look or a base for coloured eyeshadows. I tried to create some stunning ombre effects using these.
The pen is a twister with slick tip which makes the application easy. Regal green is most stunning out of the lot. Its metallic texture with little bit of shimmer makes your eyes stands out.I love mix and matching them with other eye pencil just according to mood or dress i wearing. Turquoise is also a stunner.But Royal blue is a deal breaker.It does not show up no matter how many swipes you apply.I had to put a liquid liner to get the desired effect.I would rather recommend blue from maybelline colossol.
There longevity is quite good comparatively and stay put for 8 hours at least.A must have for beginners as one can use them to perfect their eyeliner application.I would certainly recommend them for working girls as variation everyday can boost your confidence and break that monotonous look.
This eotd i have created with Royal blue and regal green givinga ombre effect on the upper lid and turquoise to my water line.
What say girls which one are you planning to buy??
