Lakme Eyeconic Kajal ~ Review & Swatch

Lakme Eyeconic Kajal Claims?
The new Eyeconic Kajal by Lakmé is literally iconic as all you need is one sweep of kajal and it lasts for 10 hours. The product is waterproof, it doesn’t smudge and it is even safe for the eyes since it is dermatologist tested.

Lakme Eyeconic Kajal 
Price: 199 INR for .35g.
 
Life Span: 30 months.

Look & Feel

Package

  • Package: The Kajal comes in this neat and stylish turquoise colored pack. The package has clear instructions about application and removal of the Kajal. The product comes in a retractable  twist-up pencil  with a tightly gripped cap. It’s slim and slips in any wallet or bag easily.

Lakme Eyeconic Kajal -Tip

  • Application: The narrow tip helps to draw thin and thick lines equally well.
  • Shade: Black.
  • Texture: Dry and matte. It doesn’t have the creamy and ‘gliding on’ texture that I would prefer.Lakme Eyeconic Kajal - Swatch

Effects


  • Pigmentation: Not so pigmented with single swipe. To get the blackest black effect minimum of 4 swipes are needed.
  • Finish? Gives dark intense eyes with multiple swipes.

Lakme Eyeconic Kajal - Finish

  • Smudge Proof?
    • Upper Lash-line: Doesn’t smudge if you don’t touch your eyes much. But if you touch your eyes too often, it will fade with a very slight smudge.
    • Water-line: No haven’t noticed any smudging.

Smudge Test

  • Lasting Power?

After 6 hours - Waterline

    • Upper Lash-line: Stays intact for 8 hours on non-oily lids and also, if you don’t touch your lids. Else it starts to fade off non-messily in about 6 hours.
    • Water-line: 5 hours.
  • Water Proof? Yes. I have washed my face using a facial foam and still you can see that it didn’t cause any messy under eyes.  So yes you do need a good eye makeup remover.

Waterline -  6 hours wear plus facewash

Also Compare –> Maybelline Colossal Kajal, Avon 2 in 1 Kajal & Smudger

Cost Efficiency? The quality is quite good for the price.

Final Note:  No doubt it’s a good Kajal but I didn’t find it to be iconic.

  27. I had such high hopes from this eyeconic range...but everything it is offering right from the mascara to the kajal is soo disappointing...I guess I will just still to my yellow wonders from maybelline till lakme decides to come with something better...

  32. Hi Smita :)

    Thanks for visiting and your love

    I like using colorbar iglide in blackout on water line.

    It's actually eye liner but safe on waterline too

    It costs around 300 dear

    So try it out...

    But if u insist on using kajal only then the maybelline colossal kajal is good :)
