LAKME Eyeconic Kajal - Product Review and Swatches

LAKME Eyeconic Kajal - Product Review and Swatches

Kajal or Kohl pencil is something that I can not live with out. So I keep on searching for good quality kajal or kohl pencils all the time and as I wear contact lenses, I always look for a good quality product. Just few months ago I bought Maybelline colossal kajal and I was ok with it, but after applying it for 4/5 hrs it started melting as it is bit creamy. Hence I was looking for a more matte and long wearable kajal, so I thought of trying Lakme Eyeconic Kajal. Well here goes the review...

What the product claims:
  • Wearable for 10 hr
  • Waterproof
  • Dermatologically tested

Color and Texture of the product:
The color of Lakme Eyeconic Kajal is deep black with cool under tone and the texture is not creamy but it glides on eyes smoothly.

My experience with LAKME Eyeconic Kajal:
Lakme Eyconic Kajal is not pitch black in tint, but if you swipe it twice, you will surely get that sexy black kohl eyes. When I put it on my eyes, my they look prominent as ever, I loved the look. The texture is not creamy but it glides on eyes very smoothly (far better than colossal). The kajal pencil is so well designed that it gives that extra grip and control, so that you can easily get your desired look. And I realized why the texture is not creamy, because it is suppose to be smudge-proof. Well is it smudge proof?? YES, absolutely, I wore the kajal and rub it with my fingers but there was no sign of smudging (you can see in the above image) or melting down, it just faded out a little. So it is a very good product for lens users. I have also confirmed that it's completely water proof, it stayed intact on my upper lashline for 8/9 hours and on lower lashline it stayed about 5/6 hours. It also does not get much effected by makeup removers, I would suggest you to use Lakme nine to five Dual Action makeup remover or any cream based cleanser to remove it.

What I liked about the LAKME Eyeconic Kajal:
  • Great pigmented color
  • Smooth and soft, glides on eyes easily
  • Does not sting
  • Absolutely waterproof and smudgeproof
  • Does not melt down
  • Good product for lens users
  • Super staying power
  • Twist up packaging is travel friendly and hygienic
  • Dermatologically tested 
  • Reasonably priced
  • Easily available
  What I don’t like about LAKME Eyeconic Kajal:
  • Need to give a good effort to remove it from eyes
Will I repurchase: 
Yes, loved it.

Indianblush rating:
  • Quality: 4/5
  • Packaging: 4.5/5
  • Pricing: 4.5/5
  • Performance: 5/5 (It is a STAR product!!)
As I was looking for a long wearable and absolutely smudge proof kajal, so I am really satisfied with it and for me it is a STAR product!!

  1. Are u sure it suits lens? Coz most eyeliners have troubled me as my lens become hazy...

  2. Are u sure it suits lens? most eyeliners cause a hazy vision soon after applying..

    1. Yeah it completely suits me and my eyes are pretty sensitive. If you suffer from hazy vision alot then you can use a good lens lubricating drop, I use Astek, it works pretty good for me.
