Lakme Absolute Gloss Artist Eyeliner Review
Today’s review is going to be about the Lakme Absolute Gloss Artist eyeliner. ‘Lakme Absolute’ is one of the high priced range of Lakme cosmetics and these are the products they usually launch with the Lakme Fashion Week every year. This is one of their earlier launches. Read more to know how this product faired for me!
Price: INR 600 for 2.5ml
Package Description: The eyeliner comes in a sleek black packaging with the name of the product printed in white. The packaging is very lightweight, looks luxurious and is travel friendly. It comes with an ultra pointed tip applicator (as you can see in the picture) which aids in precision of the liner.
Texture, Consistency and Fragrance: The texture of this liner is glossy and consistency is quite thick but the product is easy to apply on the eyelids. This doesn’t have any particular scent, which is a good thing for me since I prefer unscented cosmetics.
My take on the product: I’m not usually a liner person, I prefer kohl on my upper lid as well. However since I had to attend a wedding I was on a lookout for a good eyeliner, which also was budget friendly. I looked over for quite a lot of eyeliners but finally settled for this one. I was a little sceptical about the quality of this one and its claims of being smudge proof but I have used this a number of time and I am convinced that it is smudge proof. It is also water resistant and gives opacity in just one stroke.
Elaborating about the formula, I think the formula is pretty good, and the liner dries up quickly after application saving it from spreading all over the eye. The only thing I don’t like about this eye-liner is the glossy finish. Although it’s called the ‘gloss artist’ eye-liner, I was expecting the glossiness to be a bit understated. Apart from this, I think this product was a hit.
Talking about the lasting power, it does last for a really long time (about 6 hours) and being water proof, you can also wash your face with this on, making sure you don’t rub the area where the product is, and you’d be good to go without touch ups. Overall, I think this is a really good pick in the price that you get, however I do wish that this had a better quantity (2.5ml is quite less for someone who’d use this daily).
Hits – Lakme Absolute Gloss Artist Eyeliner
- Sleek and travel friendly packaging
- Easy availability
- Smudge proof and water resistance
- Lasting power is excellent
- Applicator aids in precision of the liner
Misses – Lakme Absolute Gloss Artist Eyeliner
- Price point slightly high
- Quantity is less compared to the price
- Not particularly fond of the overstated glossy finish
Overall Verdict: I wouldn’t repurchase this eyeliner. As I mentioned earlier I prefer kohl rather than a liner because I just feel more comfortable with the kohl. But if you are looking for a liner for parties etc, I’d recommend this one as this is glossy and suitable for party makeup.
