Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal & Curling Mascara Review

If you were intrigued with the newly launched Lakmé Eyeconic products, you are in the right place. This is a review in which photos will speak louder than words, so.....
Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal ~ Very black, very soft. Really lasts for 10 hours? Yes! Waterproof? Yes. I've been walking in the UK rains a lot recently. I like this very much, and I will repurchase. It is better than Maybelline Colossal Kajal, in case you're wondering. 
After vigorous rubbing with fingers

Lakmé Eyeconic Curling Mascara ~ I wouldn't say it's an awesome mascara, but I'm not totally disappointed with it because it is better than many mascaras I've used before (Rimmel Glam Eyes, Bourjois Elastic, etc) It curls lashes, but needs a lot of layering for volume. The brush is easy to use, and the pointy tip gets to the inner corner lashes just fine. The best thing about it is, it separates lashes rather than clump them together.
R- Eyeconic applied & smudged on top & lower lash line, L- Eyeconic


Price:
  •  Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal ~ Rs.199
  •  Lakmé Eyeconic Curling Mascara ~ Rs.250

My Rating:
  •  Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal ~ ♥♥♥♥♥ 5/5
  •  Lakmé Eyeconic Curling Mascara ~ ♥♥♥♥♥ 3.5/5
I'm so proud of Lakmé for giving us this impressive quality twosome that won't break the bank. And most of all, cute packaging. Oh, and they do live up to the name Iconic Eyeconic. Definitely not an anti-climax here.
["Dear Lakmé, now we want an Eyeconic Eyeshadow Palette - A mix of neutral & bright colors, a mix of matte & shimmery. 5-10 shades. Not the baked ones. And ya, priced under Rs.700.
 Pretty Please!"]
Have you ladies tried Eyeconic yet?

  1. yes, my thoughts exactly with the eyeconic Kajal. But I found the non-removal bit difficult.

    1. Oil-base makeup remover or cleansing oil would remove it in a jiffy Poorna

    2. I'm in love with this product my bro bought me these I was satisfied with maybelline collosal kajal before and bought it again and my brother bought me these and now I think this one's the best doesn't smudge and really intense black doesn't get off easily and I use an oil based make up remover to remove it

  6. i am gonna buy both, what have u applied on ur upper lash? looks very pretty

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Upper lash? The mascara. Did you mean upper lid?

      ♥xx♥

      Delete
    2. I smudged the Kajal on there...and lightly contoured my lids.

      ♥xx♥

      Delete
  7. I echo your sentiments! Stays on longer than the colossal and I find it darker ;)
    Though it doesn't justify the 10hr claim for me,given how oily my lids are.. but it does a fine job by staying on for max 7 hours.
    I used to adore the Kohl Ultimate but it's just too expensive for a poor college student like me. So yes, i'm a convert to the eyeconic kajal :)

    1. Ya, Kohl Ultimate is expensive, but this is just as good so no prob :)

  8. I had a hard time grabbing this Kajal..wheras the mascara is yet not so popular, the kajal has gone out of stock in most big malls in Ggn within day of its launch..finally got one at NewU @Ambience and I'm so glad I did....while the mascara didn't really catch my fancy, the kajal is really very good..way better than Colossal which I hated, but not better than my Revlon Colorstay, but at this price, I think its the best available in the market!!

  9. I always love the way you do make up for your eyes.Stunning!Often that I don't like brands that you use,the ingredients I mean.But I always see your EOTD,they're all amazing!This will sound harsh,but there're bloggers who have eotd that made me think of clowns.Only you who have made me amazed.It's such classy and elegant on you,eventhough you wore blocking colors.Thumbs up!

  10. Hi Cynthia, am sooo happy to read this much awaited review. Is it better than lakme absolute kohl? I think that's the best kohl I have ever known. If this is the same then I can go for this since this is less than one-third of its price!

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! :)
