One of the classiest colours this season, for eyes, isn’t green or purple, but the humble white. The colour that has long been associated with nails and eye shadow is now a prominent kohl colour. And a damn good one at that. While it might not be the best buy for a lot of us, but white sure adds a bit of spunk to your outfit. Today, we are reviewing Lakme’s Eyeconic White, one of the most affordable white varieties in the market today. Let’s see how this one fares, Shall we?
It’s one of the smoothest white kohls in the market now. It blends rather well with your eyes and creates well defined and iconic streaks along your waterline and upperline. The twist-mouth applicator is an easy to use tool that comes in handy even while on the move. While the tip tends to get a bit rough, it gets fine and even as you continue to use it. Gently twist open the kohl and apply a neat stroke along your waterline or upperline and feel the tough of velvet on your eyes.
We were a little concerned about the colour or darkness quotient of the shade as it looked and felt so velvety and creamy. We did not expect it to give a rich, neat colouring with just one stroke. But, well, we were surprised…It does give a dark and defined stroke that looks prominent without being overly dramatic. Perhaps, that’s what we were looking for in a kohl pencil. The colour has to come through, but not make one look like a clown. Well, Lakme wins this one hands down!
As claimed by Lakme, the kohl is indeed smudge and water-proof. It doesn’t bleed or become messy in the heat, which is a huge plus. Despite it being creamy and luscious, it doesn’t spread unless smudged with a make-up tool. You can wear it in the rains too or even wash your face while wearing it. It’s totally water-proof. In fact, you’ll need make-up remover to get the kohl off your eyes.
The company may proclaim that the kohl stays for eight hours straight, but that’s all bull. It stays for a maximum of four to five without smudging and bleeding. And to us, that’s a pretty decent bargain. If the kohl can cover even half your day, you’re sorted…aren’t you? It’s a multipurpose kohl that can be used as a stand alone pencil or as a highlighter, shadow and even base.
At Rs 250, the kohl pencil is worth every penny if white is your thing this season. Do give a shout to us if you have anything more to add to this review. Please note that this review was independently written without any perks from Lakme. It’s a genuine review.
