I recently tried the new recently launched Lakme Eyeconic 22 hours smudge proof kajal which I found to be a good product overall. I used it over a week before I decided to review it here for you.
The claims it makes are very clear and straight it is dark, it is smudge proof and it lasts longer. Let us see how I found it on these three parameters. Additionally, it is ophthalmologists tested.
About New Lakme Eyeconic Kajal 22 Hour Smudge Proof
This kajal is really dark even darker than Maybelline Colossal Kajal which is a favorite of most of us. What I observe that it is indeed waterproof for sure as claimed by the company even after I washed my face. The kajal surely is intense specially when it comes to my eyes as my eyes are oily but it does show on my eyes really well. So I like this about it. It would have been nice though if more colors would have been on offer. The pigmentation is good but the thing that struck me to be bad was that it came off on my fingers if I touched it. There is no doubt in my mind that this Kajal keeps its promises well.
Like its previous version, this Kajal is very good at giving you the dark eyes with a good intense eye liner, and a powerful dark kohl-lit eyes as Kareena Kapoor Khan brought to the limelight. Earlier to that time, darker Kohl was considered to be a little off fashioned.
This time this Kajal is definitely good at lasting power. I tried it for 10-12 hours and it did stay a little longer than I expected. Obviously no one would wear a kajal for 22 hours. So overall I am very happy with its performance and even the price of INR 210 is good enough to lure you towards it.
My Experience with New Lakme Eyeconic Kajal 22 Hour Smudge Proof
It has not smudged on my eye and it definitely has won me over its intensity compared to the other big brands I have used. This Kajal though should have more variety is what I can offer as a feedback to the brand. More colors, more differentiation is probably required here as it would make it more preferable than other brands like Maybelline and L’Oreal.
Also, for my readers, I would advise you to buy it from sites like Nykaa rather than Amazon or Flipkart as they might have fake products as per my experience. You can best buy it from the outlets near you for the judicious purchase.
Overall, I like the product for its performance and its price as well. It is transport friendly with a good packaging which is similar to its predecessor. It is good to carry, lasts longer, durable for at least a month long daily use. Also it is easy to apply and safe to use. You should try it if you like the dark Kohl look. I would really recommend this one if you love your Kajal to be really dark.
Also I have been trying a lot of kajal and eyeliners off late from various brands Colorbar, Sugar, L’Oreal, Maybelline etc. If you want me to review, do let me know through your comments. I can also do a comparative post on may be the best available Kohl’s available to us.
