Lakme Perfect Definition Lipliner Black Currant Review

LAKME PERFECT DEFINITION LIPLINER BLACK CURRANT
I have a very few lipliners in comparison to lipglosses and lipsticks. Because of this reason, I wanted to get a few lipliners. I found Lakme perfect definition lipliners at a local store a few days back. Since Lakme lipliners are quite economical and this color Black Currant seemed very versatile to me, I decided to get this lipliner.

My experience with this product:

Black currant is a deep matte berry-plum color. It has no pearly, glossy or shimmery effect. It is a very pretty color and will go well with all maroon, purple, magenta lipsticks when used as a lipliner. It looks very beautiful as a lip color and will suit all skin tones.

This lip pencil is greatly pigmented. It isn’t very smooth or soft when applied on the lips but there is no pulling or tugging of the lips required. Since it is not very smooth and soft, I prefer to apply a lipbalm before applying it. The lipbalm helps it to glide easily on my lips. This lip pencil can have a drying effect on lips, especially in winters. So, it’s always better to apply a lip balm beneath it.

As a lipcolor, it stays on my lips for 3-4 hours and an oil based make up remover is required to remove it completely. As a lipliner, it definitely increases the staying power of lipsticks and prevents bleeding or smudging of lipsticks.

Will I repurchase/ do I recommend?

This lip pencil may not be the perfect lip pencil because it isn’t that smooth and is a bit drying but it is nicely pigmented and increases the staying power of lipsticks. It looks good as a lipcolor too. It is decently priced too. Because of all these qualities, I think you should check this out. :)

Have a nice day! :)
