Lakme Absolute Kohl Review !


I am a kohl girl and I am so obsessed with kohls.I have tried everything from Colorbar,Faces,Lakme Eyeconic,Maybelline Colossal,Himalaya,Coloressence etc

I love intense black and smoky eyes.I was on the search for the queen among the Indian Kajals and decided to buy the Lakme Absolute Kohl seeing the price tag,unique packaging and all the rant and rave from my friends about it.

Before this I was using the L’oreal Kajal Magique and liked it too.I am using it since a month and I am reviewing it today for you girls.

Price : Rs 700 for 1.2 g

My take on the product:

The first thing that you will notice about this kohl is that it is jet black.The pigmentation is so great with just one swipe.The color payoff is excellent.
The product comes in a traditional kohl packaging in pencil form with a cap and a smudger at its back.The pencil is black and has Brand name and description inscribed in golden colour.

I read online that this comes with a sharpener.I purchased this from Nykaa and mine has no sharpener but just a transparent cap.I wonder whether Lakme has changed its packaging.Anyways the sharpener is not there.
This product has no outer carton too.The pencil is sleek and easy to use.There is something unique about its packaging.

The texture of this pencil is extremely soft,buttery and creamy.The consistency is smooth.This glides like a dream and doesn’t tug.No irritations too.
The smudger should be used immediately.The kajal dries quickly and sets up soon on the lids so you need to do the smudging quickly as soon as you apply.Otherwise it is very difficult to get the smudging done.

The kohl is waterproof and stays on my eyes for 8+ hours intact.It is totally smudge proof.
The results are just amazing. This is undoubtedly the best kohl available in Indian market.
