LAKME Black Satin Kajal Review


Lakme Black Satin Kajal is a new product that was launched with the Gypsy Collection. 
If you have been reading my blog since the beginning, you would probably know that my favorite kajal is the Lotus Herbals Natural Kajal , so I was very excited to try a new one. A girl need variety, right?


First things first, the pencil  is so pretty with the gold floral design (mine got messed up coz of a nail polish accident, which I won't bore you with again)




Likes:
  • Jet black and intense
  • Glossy & soft, so it's very gentle on the eyes.
  • It's in pencil form so no worries about bacteria and stuff like that since you can sharpen it, unlike the Lotus & Himalaya Kajals.
  • Perfect for smokey eyes. It can be smudged beautifully
Dislikes:
  • Now this could be my sharpener's fault, but I find it very hard to sharpen it. It's almost impossible to make the tip pointy without wasting a lot of product. *I'll try keeping it in the fridge before sharpening it next time*
  • Smudging. But I guess it wouldn't be a 'kajal' if it doesn't. Not an issue for me, but thought I'd mention it.

Like I use all other kajals, I only use this to tightline and on my lower lash line. But just to give you a better idea of how it looks, I applied it on my upper lash line as well....

Application tip: If you want a precise thin line on your upper lash line, run an eyeliner brush on the kajal and apply. Then with the same brush, set the line with a black powder eyeshadow, so it won't smudge all over your lids. 

Overall, I really like the Black Satin Kajal. Maybe more than the Lotus one, but let's talk about that next time, ya? :)

Price ~ Rs.150

  1. I faced the same problem while sharpening the old Lakme Kajal. It's so thick that it broke in bits while applying or got mashed. I like its application on your eyes and tempted to buy it. I don't know...

    Thanks for the tips. I'd try it the next time I am gonna apply kajal...

  8. I don't think I've ever tried kajal liners before (?) I've been using liquid liner forever now it seems. However I am really loving the EOTD this brilliant pencil gives you! :D

    P.S What Inglot products do you recommend? I may be getting the chance to finally try this brand and would love to hear your thoughts!

  9. It looks fabulous on you! I really love this kajal a lot - for some reason it doesn't smudge a lot on me - I guess I am just plain lucky on that front :) :)

  14. Wow! Thank you so much Cynthia for taking the time to give me all that info! Nope, I'm heading to Vegas where I hear they recently opened up a shop. Oh and yep, sadly no perfume. =\ I can only really put it on my wrists so I don't even bother.

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
