I have a weird fetish of buying things in even numbers. I mean really, I have been made fun of for this kind of me by practically everyone but I cant seem to help myself. I have this need to buy stuff in even numbers or in multiples of 5. LOL! So, it was only befitting that when I picked up the Lakme Gel Liner in Vineyard, that I should pick up another shade as well. And since I have always been on the hunt for the perfect brown, (very few show up on my lids) metallic Bronze
was the obvious choice!

My experience with Lakme Gel Addict Liner in Metallic Bronze:
Packaging: It comes in a tiny pot with the brush attached at the lid much like the Â Revlon gel liners. The brush is indeed good and despite being a weird shape, the pot is quite easy to store.
Color: The color is a vibrant bronze. True to its name it is also-fantastically metallic so it does have that sheen we all love.
Texture & Pigmentation: The texture is super soft and mousse like. I doubt it will ever dry out. It is alot more pigmented than Vineyard but being a brown shade (and us havin typical Indian skin) it still needs to be layered twice atleast to be visible.
Staying Power: Stayed on my lids in all its glory for about 5 hrs after which the sheen dulled down. Nevertheless, the liner remains on the lids until removed with a remover.
Easy to apply and looks fantastic too. Application is made very easy with the brush
which is quite superb. Initially i felt the texture would be too soft and would take long to set but on the contrary it sets within 30secs which is perfect.
I would reccommend using this as an eyeshadow too..it would go perfectly with our Indian skintone.
What I like about Lakme Gel Addict Liner in Metallic Bronze:
1. Texture is mousse-like and wont dry anytime soon.
2. Well pigmented compared to Vineyard.
3. Can be used as an eyeshadow as well.
4. Very good staying power and doesnt flake.
5. Love the metallic sheen it gives.
6. Comes with a brush which is superb!
What I don’t like about Lakme Gel Addict Liner in Metallic Bronze:
1. Needs to be layered for the shade to show up densely.
While not a must have shade for all, this certainly is one of the shades in the brown family which everyone should have in their stash. Lakme is really improving their quality and no doubt these gel liners are bound to me a big hit!!
