This one is for you, Poornima. 🙂
What is Lakme Eye Pot?
- Eye shadows with the depth and luster of precious gemstones.
- A sumptuous crème format that can be almost intuitively applied with fingertips to create layers and textures.
- For glowing shadows with smoldering sensuality and mystery.
Price Rs 295/- (Indian Rupees)
Available in 3 shades : Topaz, Jade, Quartz
Shade I own: Topaz. It is a golden-copperish colour.
What I love about Lakme Eye Pot?
- It is easy to apply. Even if you don’t know how to do eye makeup, you would be able to use it. Just apply it all over your lids, apply mascara and you are good to go.
- I have a shade Topaz, I can use it all over my lid or just to highlight my brow bone, it never fails me. it gives a nice sheen to my lids and browbone.
- It is not super pigmented but is quite buildable. So you can control the amount of colour that goes on your lids.
- It has a creamy texture and blends easily. It turns powdery once applied on the lids.
- I have it with me for almost an year now and it hasn’t dried up or changed in texture.
- Has a light cosmetic fragrance.
- Even in summers it doesn’t melt or crease. (considering you have primed your eyes)
- Is decently priced.
- The packaging looks cute.
What I don’t like about Lakme Eye Pot?
Even though it is a nice product an all, it has lots of drawbacks.
- It just doesn’t stay on your eyes if you have not applied base on your lids. You apply it without a primer and it would start fading within half and hour or so. You would just have some ugly chunk of gold here and there on your lids.
- If you don’t prime your lids, it would crease badly and if you have oily lids, you are gone for a toss without a base.
- I find the mouth of the pot pretty small. I generally maintain long nails so every time I dip my finger to apply it, the colour gets into my nails. :pumpkin: A wider mouth would have made things a little easier.
- I personally think that it goes on better with a smudger brush and then you can blend it with your fingers.
- It is available only in 3 shades and other than Topaz, rest two shades are not even versatile options.
Overall I don’t have much complaints with the product. Infact I quite like the topaz colour. It definitely adds to my eye makeup collection. 🙂
Here is Lakme Eye Pot- topaz on my lids. I just applied MAC Painterly Paint Pot beneath the eyeshadow.
