Hi Makeup Geeks,
I have been a regular lover of Maybelline Collosal Kajal from a very long time. I use kajal on evryday basis, sometimes twice a day. So, when i saw the new Launch from Lakme claimimg a long lasting kajal 22hrs retractable black kajal. I thought of giving it a try. That`s why, Today i will be reviewing Lakme Eyeconic Kajal 22 Hrs Deep Black. It`s been using two weeks now that i am using this one rather than my maybelline pencil and so here is my complete review on this baby from Lakme.
Price & Quantity : 180 Rs. for 0.35g of product. Buy Here.
Claims By Brand :
- No Smudge.
- Lasts upto 22 Hrs.
- Ophthalmologist Tested i.e. Suitable for Contact lens users.
Lakme Eyeconic Kajal 22 Hrs has the same packaging as the old one 10 hrs Black Kajal. It comes in a blue colored cardboard packaging with everything clearly written over it. The pencil inside has a black retractable plastic body with a slim cap tightly fitted on it. It also has a twisted function and the cap shuts so well, when clicked. Lakme is written on the pencil in capital blue font. The shade name is written on the pencil where the cap shuts on to the pencil. It is so travel friendly as when i used to go to office i always carry some stuff with me. It can also be carried so easily and no need for sharpening it and no product wastage too.
It is highly pigmented and can be used as a regular kajal, as an eyeliner as i use almost daily, as a smoked eye look or as a base for intense dark black smokey eyes. But one definitely need multiple swipes to get the desired bold color.
My Take on the Lakme Eyeconic Kajal 22 Hrs Deep Black Kajal :
As, I told in the beginning that i am a regular user of kajals from a long time maybelline but this time my sis told me that this is a very nice kajal. So, I tried it and i am happy with its results. It is pretty long-lasting, I have used on to my eyes from 11am to 8pm i.e. 9 hours and this didn`t budge at all. It fades a little from the water line but some color is still there. This doesn`t irritate my eyes in the hot humid summer so lakme claim for the contact lens users seem to be true. It is quite an affordable kajal in such a price of Rs. 180. It is also waterproof as i need an oil based makeup remover to remove it. I am not sure about 22 hrs claim as i have never used kajal for such a long time, i would rather prefer to remove and reapply if i need so. Lastly, it is a nice black bold kajal in such a reasonable price from Lakme which lasts on me for more than 8-9 hrs, waterproof, smudge- proof and suitable for sensitive eyes too.
