The cousin – Eyeconic Kajal!

The lovely cousin of a another super product of the same line : The Lakme Eye-conic Curling Mascara.  And i love this one too !

I bought this together with the Mascara and the 2 are a deadly duo. Dead Black. That’s what they are. And they are so easy to apply. The Kajal is very soft and totally smudge proof. It just glides on the eyeline and leaves a very definitive finish.

 Me Likes .

Just like the mascara, the Lakme Eye-conic kajal too is intensely black and butter smooth. Whats more, it lasts for 10 hrs straight! Super! But wait, there is more! It is smudge proof, waterproof , and dermatologically tested ,  so its super safe .. apart from super awesome that is !

As usual, it needs to do its job for my work day.. the long and dreary types.. and last its actual 10 hrs .. but i am yet to test that bit out.. for now, i am rejoicing in its rich black outline. I am gonna give you some pictures later, when i find myself an official photographer ( read husband in his free-time) and get the lighting right..For now, here’s a pic of the product.

And again, at Rs.199 only !!

Eyeconic !!

Today, i was looking to finish a couple of tasks: go to the library and meet a friend.  But somehow on the way, I landed myself at the local cosmetic store and bought a couple products!!Of late, I have been amassing eye products and decided to try the Lakme Eye-conic Range – the Lakme Curling Mascara.. And the Lakme Eye-Conic Kajal. To complete the eye-product range, I also sampled the Lakme Absolute Shine Line Eyeliner( in Black).

And here’s about the Lakme Curling Mascara. It comes in this curvy container shaped like a tear-drop(from the top), a new nice applicator brush, and the new colour tones that Lakme has started using for the eye-conic range really please the eye .. if you know what i mean .. 

So i give it a shot and find it really amazing. It is super smooth and really dense. Not so dense to look clumpy, but just enough to give your lashes the length and thickness they need. And all in just one coat. A double coat gives an intense black and statement finish.. Just brilliance. When i dress up to the bold look, this one is definitely on my list of must wears.

What adds to the brilliance is the Smart Curl Brush. Its slightly curved and does very well to work just the lashes without getting spots on the side/lids ( Ew! Messy to remove, especially if you have eye-shadow on). Works even better if you want to apply mascara only to the lashes near the ends of the eyes oe reach the lashes near the tear ducts. Most brushes make it difficult to get there, but not this one. I use mascara on the outer ends of the eyes for daily make up, to highlight my lashes and give them a bit of length. My office women still don’t do the full routine, you see.. So it suits me perfectly, for daily use as well!

Only problem with this is that its one tough cookie to clear. You have to put in some effort to get this off your eyes, it just wont leave easy. I used a Revlon Make-up remover and had to struggle with it quite a bit and after, my lashes looked a tad longer. Now am not sure if i got all of it out. But longer lashes? Yay!

And at Rs.250, i think it’s a super hot buy ! Must get .. RIGHT NOW!

Colossal Kajal – Super Lovely Eyes!

This eye pencil was part of a shopping from H&G .. Am on budget mode and only drugstore brands for a while, so this was among the first picks.Its been a while since i bought this though..
I fell in love with this one as soon as i tried it, in the store.And not even on my eye .. the colour is very dense and the lines are neat and clear.It doesn’t smudge for a few hours.And stays quite intense for quite a while. And even after it smudges it maintains its intensity.I just love its blackness. sooo intense .. Of late, most pencils are an intense black and  i am liking that finish.
The only thing is that it smudges around its pencil.. and the pencil being yellow, its gets a bit dirty looking and that i dont likes that too much .. I am the kind that wipes the spills and smudges very consciously and keep them neat . i am having to bother too much with this one 😦 ! Atleast this one is a two way pencil – If i roll out too much, i can roll it back in ..
Also, it tends to dry out a bit if you leave it unused for a while, and you can actually feel it when you apply it the next time. I dont think its supposed to do that and i aint liking it..
Pix are in the side & a swatch below ..The swatch appears a bit blurred here.. But in reality the lines are pretty clean and good .. i think i need to improve my photography skills..
I have forgotten the price for this one .. i remember it was around 199-299 at H&G.. so for daily use or to pack for handbags .. its a hot buy..
I am not sure I like the border design on the picture, but I formatted a few the same way and lost the originals . Phew !!
