Hi everyone! How are you all doing? 🙂 I know that I am little late in posting. Sorry! It’s wedding season so…I’ve been attending some weddings and then shopping etc. takes some time. Well, there are some more weddings to attend! Anyways, let’s come back to today’s post, which is a review on a curling mascara from Lakme, which I have been using for 2 months or so. Mascara is a must have in every girls makeup-kit, as it makes your eyelashes appear thick, and opens up the eyes making your eyes look more appealing! Read on to find out how this one performed!
Price and quantity:
9ml for Rs.350
Perfect for daily use, wear this lightweight mascara for an almost natural look with a distinctive curve. The Lakmé Eyeconic Curling Mascara gives volume to your lashes and is ideal for everyday use. Its smart curl brush gives the perfect curve for well-defined eyes. Light and easy to remove, the moisturizer in it keeps lashes smooth.
Directions to use Lakme eyeconic curling mascara:
My experience with Lakme eyeconic curling mascara:
It comes in a card paper packaging with all the necessary information mentioned on it, except ingredients. The body of the mascara is all back in color and has a very stunning look to it! It’s asymmetrical yet it can be balanced easily on a flat surface. The wand is also different from the other regular mascara wands, available in the market. The wand can be easily held in hand and provides good grip.
Color and consistency
The mascara is jet black in color and has a liquid-y and creamy consistency.
The wand is long, curvy and the bristles are dense, picks up adequate amount of the product. It helps in separating eyelashes at the same time giving it curled look and volume. After application, the mascara dries up within a minute, both the coats. I only require two coats of the mascara to apply on my eyelashes, to get the desired look. You can build-up the product once the previous coat dries up. It applies smoothly on the eyelashes. Without any effort I can easily apply mascara on my top and bottom lashes. And even on the inner corners of my lashes with the help of the tip of the wand.
In the picture below, I have applied one coat of the mascara. I haven’t used an eyelash curler in any of the pictures!
In the picture below, I have applied two coats of the mascara. You can see and tell that eyelashes has clumped-up and little crumbles can be seen. This only happens if the wand is not wiggled properly while applying the mascara.
In the picture below, you can easily make out a difference which eye is with mascara and without mascara. My eyelashes are thin and are semi-curled naturally. This mascara gives full curled look, lifting up my eyelashes and some volume, making my eyelashes look thick naturally. And only when looked very closely you can see that some eyelashes have clumped-up, otherwise it looks all natural and good! 🙂
It stays on eyelashes throughout the day, but as soon as the mascara comes in contact with the water, for example while rinsing face with water, then the mascara starts bleeding. My eyelashes also stayed curled up as long as the mascara was there. I use my regular makeup remover to remove the mascara because this mascara can be easily removed with any makeup remover. So, no need to get the bi-phased makeup remover. (Currently, I am using This makeup remover. When the post is up, the link will be added.)
Overall, I love this mascara! I have been using this continuously since past 2 months!
Pros of Lakme eyeconic curling mascara:
- Intense black color.
- Smart curl brush.
- Perfect for everyday use.
- Can be used without eyelash curler too. Actually, eyelash curler can be skipped.
- Easy to apply.
- Can be easily removed with any makeup remover.
- Separates eyelashes.
- Gives volume to eyelashes.
- Classy packaging.
- Travel friendly.
Cons of Lakme eyeconic curling mascara:
- Not waterproof.
- If the wand is not wiggled properly while applying the mascara, it creates clumps on eyelashes.
- The quantity is less or the product which I got has dried up. :/
It is a good mascara! I would suggest this mascara for everyday use and only if non-waterproof mascara would work for you. This mascara does a great job in making eyes look attractive even without applying eyeliner and/or kohl.
So, have you used this curling mascara? 🙂
