Lakme Eyeconic Kajal Blue (3) Lakme Eyeconic Kajal In Blue: Swatches & Review

I love hoarding color eye pencils a lot – but recently I had completely stopped using them not realizing why – on my eyes everyday was the Lakme Eyeconic Black. One day a  friend asked why I don’t wear my colored liners any more when I realised it is all due to my absolute crazy love for the eyeconic black . I haven’t ever found an eye kohl which didn’t smudge or budge on my oily lids or my waterline. I mentioned to her – If Lakme came up with colored pencils in the same quality – I would buy them in a heartbeat – and maybe that will make me reinvent my love for colored eye liners. So the day I saw the eyeconic white post and heard about them launching 4 other colors I went to the store to get them. I was going to buy all of them except white – but I thought I will try out one before I bought the rest. So, I bought the Lakme Eyeconic kohl in Blue.

Product Claims:

  • 10 hr No Smudge
  • Waterproof
  • Dermatologically Tested

It is not as great as the Eyeconic black – the texture is the same but pigmentation wise it could have been bluer. I need to layer it on my eyes 2-3 times to get good color payoff. Also it looks almost black from the distance. It definitely smudges (refer pic where I have rubbed it with my fingers) – it vanishes from my waterline in 4-5 hours and lightens from my lids quite a bit time.

Pros:

  1. Reasonable Price
  2. Nice texture – can be layered on without puling or tugging lids

Cons:

  1. Doesn’t stay 10 hours – definitely fades in half the time
  2. Color payoff isn’t as good as I would like, requires layering which however makes it look more black on my lids.
  3. The color itself is not too appealing- i would have wanted a mre vibrant blue!

Rating: B

Price: 250 INR

Will I repurchase? I don’t think this color but I might get the other colors just to try.

Overall recommendation: Lakme Eyeconic Blue is a far cousin of the LAkme Eyeconic Black. Though similar in packaging & texture, it doesn’t stay put like the black for hours. Also, I would definitely have wanted a better looking blue color.

The lighting makes it look a little more dull – it is little more intense than the pic

Blue doesn’t look much good from all the colors range in Lakme but I’ve ordered all the colors will have to bear this one too.
