Lakme Absolute Shine Line in Brown Review (1) Lakme Absolute Shine Line in Brown Review

I have been hunting for a brown eyeliner lately and whichever ones I like are always (like ALWAYS) out of stock wherever I try. So this came in my hand when I was pretty desperate to have any brown eyeliner – and I am quite glad I found a nice one accidentally :)

Product Claims: Rich, intense color in one stroke that stays true for hours. Create smoldering eyes with bold shades that redefine the look of liquid eyeliner.

The Color and finish: Rich bronzy brown – a gorgeous shade, though I might not show up very well on someone darker than NC40 – do try before you buy. Finish wise it is quite satiny – somewhere in between gel and liquid liner once it dries. It stays on me for 4-5 hours but could last longer on people who aren’t continuously touching their eyes.

Packaging: I think the absolute range has a classy packaging and this fits the bill. The brush is easy to use and the bottle is sturdy. It also travels well.

Really nice shade, I’m glad the price isn’t obscene! :)

Pretty pretty shade!! I am buying this!

lovely shade.. I am once rolling back to liquid and gel liners. Formula, texture and staying power are much improved…

This is only Rs 290? I assumed it would cost a lot more. Can I have this and the one in teal please?!
