Lakme Absolute Forever Silk Eyeliner Earth Line

Hello Beauties,

How many of you like to use eyeliner but are hesitant to wear black liner to office? Raise your hands. Okay, now put your hands down and get happy because we finally have a solution to our problem. And that is this awesome brown eyeliner from Lakme Absolute.

I was looking for a brown pencil eyeliner form quite some time which can meet my requirements. I had very basic requirements, I just wanted a matt, longwearing and transfer proof liner. And when I say longwearing I don’t mean 6 hours I mean more than 9 hours because that is the average time I spend at work every day. So let’s get started with the review to see how well this liner scored against my requirements.


Price: INR 410 for .28 gm

What product claims:

• Velvet finish.
• Smudge proof.
• Water Proof.
• Super long wear.
• Dermatologically tested.


My experience with Lakme Absolute Forever Silk Eyeliner Earth Line:

Lakme Absolute Forever silk eyeliner comes in a twist up packaging in black plastic. The color of the eyeliner is marked as a band on the cap, Earth line has a brown band. Coming to the color, it is a matt brown shade with no shimmer at all, something which looks appropriate at work. It glides easily on my eyelids but I won’t say that it glides like dream or it is very creamy. To get desired color I have to go at least 2 times on my eyelids. It does not tug my skin but it does feel little dry while using on eyelids. I also used it on my waterline, it shows up well on the water line. I did not feel any irritation as such but It was totally comfortable either. So if you have sensitive eyes I would suggest to not wear it on waterline.


It claims to be waterproof, smudge proof and super long wear and I give full marks to this liner for all these. It stays on my water line for 4-5 hours, and it never washes off with just water. It is also smudge proof, you can see in the swatch, I have vigorously rubbed it still the liner is intact. I also tend to rub my eyes sometimes while working on computer, but this liner never made them look like raccoon eyes, it stays on my eye lid almost throughout the day. In the picture you can see that after 10 hours of wear also it is still there on my eyelids. Really super long wear which is great thing for girls like me who even work 12 hours a day at office 😛 To clean this liner one has to use a makeup remover, as this cannot be washed off with water and soap. Now that it has become my favorite eyeliner for work, I recommend this to all the ladies out there who are looking for a brown eyeliner.


Pros of Lakme Absolute Forever Silk Eyeliner Earth Line:

• Very long lasting formula.
• Solid brown shade with no shimmer or shine, apt for office wear.
• Smudge proof and water proof.
• Glides easily on eyelids.
• Well pigmented.

Cons of Lakme Absolute Forever Silk Eyeliner Earth Line:

• For this price I was expecting more quantity of product.

IMBB Rating: 4.75/5

Will I be repurchasing it? Yes I will be.

  1. Even Faces has a brown eyeliner pencil in the shade Solid Brown. That’s good too and about 60 rupees cheaper. Btw,does this one sting the waterline? I wear contacts and have sensitive eyes.

    1. I do not have sensitive eyes Nandini but I am not very comfortable with this on my waterline…. I will suggest not to use it on waterline if you have very sensitive eye

  2. well written review sweta. seems an excellent product both quality, characteristics and shade wise. i will try a brown eyeliner now but have to find some other brand is Lakme is not available here. btw, i am terrified with your work hours…my 8 hours kill me *headbang*
