Lakmé Brown Eyeconic Kajal

After the success of the Black Eyeconic Kajal (I did a post on it here), Lakmé  launched 5 more shades - Brown, White, Green, Grey & Blue. Brown pencil liners are my ultimate must-haves, so I couldn't wait to try this one!
Claims: No Smudge, Waterproof, Lasts for 10 hours.

Lakmé Brown Eyeconic Kajal Swatch


The Good:
It is not soft like a kohl pencil, so it's quite matte. This makes it really smudge-proof & long-lasting. When you wear it on your top lash line, it won't transfer on to your lids (you ladies with hooded lids know what I'm talking about)

It could also work as an eyebrow pencil if dark brows suit you.


The Bad:
Because it is not soft, it doesn't glide on your waterline easily. I have to draw a few times for the brown to transfer.

The texture can feel a bit too stiff for the delicate eye areas, like the waterline. The other day, I had that uneasy feeling of 'something-is-in-my-eye', which lasted a while.


In Short: 
Good on lash line.
Not So Good on waterline & inner rims.



It's not a product I'd want to buy again, but it's a decent budget liner. In this price range, there's really not a lot of options when it comes to brown eye pencils here in India. So, if I ever have to suggest one that's under 300 bucks to a friend or a student on a budget, this will most probably be it.




Price ~ Rs.250.


My Rating:
3/5



Have you all tried this? Would love to know your favorite brown pencil liner!

  10. Beautiful pictures Cynthia! This is my favourite brown liner for work as it doesn't smudge AT ALL and lasts without fading for a solid 7 hours on me. But I agree about the waterline part- on days when I've used it for tightlining I've always noticed some lashfall from the upper lashes.

  15. Oh it's a very pretty shade. I have been using brown shade in Oriflame Beauty Smooth Definer. It is super fine and a little lighter in colour. It helps bring out my eyes colour, which is hazel. Do give it a try too!

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! :)
