Lakme Eyeconic Kajal Review

Product Description:

  • 10 hour.
  • No smudge.
  • Waterproof.
  • Dermatologically tested.

I am reviewing this one for all you kajal lovers and more so for all you Maybelline Colossal Kajal lovers.  I will try to slightly compare the Maybelline Colossal Kajal and this Eyeconic kajal. Clearly, this is a close take on the Colossal one, but still, I don’t want to give a last word on which one to pick over the other 😛

Eyeconic Kajal 1

Lakme has come out with two new “Eyeconic” range products, a basic mascara and a kajal, which I think each one of us use on a daily basis.  So, its a good call to come out with such products at such a great price point of Rs. 199 for the kajal and Rs. 250 for the mascara.  One thing I absolutely love about these two is the appeal they have in terms of the packaging and the color and the name “Eyeconic” (remember “eye-am” from Maybelline?).  This will be a hit with the younger girls (I am 27, not so old though) and also a hit with newcomers to makeup. I assume the price will go up very soon on this by at least 50 because that is the trend with Lakme and it happened with Lakme Absolute too. So, get your packs for trial now.

Eyeconic Kajal 2

The kajal is a twist-up one, which thankfully retracts back in place.  I hate the ones like Amway, which once twisted up, don’t twist back :/, but never mind.  The description does not say anything about application on the waterline and I don’t use these type of kajals on my waterline.  I stick to the Indian ones like Lotus or may be even Lakme Black Satin Kajal.  This one is more for the lash line and I am not even trying it out on my water line because this one won’t glide well I feel.

Eyeconic Kajal 3

The kajal is deep black, very smooth, but not like crumbly smooth. But still I want to point out here that I clearly find the Maybelline Colossal Kajal to be more black and intense any day.  I am not carrying my Maybelline Colossal Kajal on this trip, so I can’t give you the swatch for it, but still, I remember how Colossal feels.  This one might even be smoother than the Colossal kajal.  It glides on very well, but still in a firm way.

Eyeconic Kajal 4

This kajal wins in terms of “no-smudge” claims. I wore this to bed for an afternoon nap, this did not budge. I wore this even for a head bath and shower 😛 (things I do for my reviews :P), it did not budge. I can confidently say that this stays more on my oily eyelids than the Colossal one.  I have oily eyelids and any non-smudge kajal smudges on the lid after say 4 hours, but this one wore for at least 8 hours and I can say that the 10-hour claim is true and so is the “waterproof” claim and it did not sting my eye a bit and I think the dermatologically tested claim is absolutely correct.

Eye Swatches:

Grey Contact lens

Grey Eyes

Last Word:

It wears for 8 to 10 hours, is smudge proof, very smooth and black.  Just to compare, the Maybelline Colossal kajal is blacker, but this one stays on my oily lids for longer than the Maybelline one.  This kajal is softer yet firm, and waterproof as well. Definitely worth every “paisa” for its non-smudge wear and the cute packaging.  I won’t try this on the waterline, only the lash line.  All kajal lovers, get it now!

  1. these types of pencils break very quickly for me. I love the Maybelline colossal one but use it sparingly ‘cos it breaks. maybe I am using too much force. 🙁 this lakme one looks really good. For 199 bucks surely worth trying. 🙂 thanks for ther review

  2. i saw this onlune on healthkart this afternoon only.. n was wondering that no reviews on imbb yet…. n here u are!! hihih!! 🙂

    thankys for the reveiw.. wonder how it wud be on the lash line..

  3. I totally agree with Aru tat dese pencils break away easily recently i broke my colossal kajal and i also dont like long pencils (i have tried Nyx,Faces )because sharpening is a tedious job for me. i tend to break d tip :(. But for Rs 199 I will try it even on my waterline 😛 😀

  4. I prefer bourjois, got almost 5 colors of it.. n they are like the best among all the kajals i have tried so far. It is waterproof, stays much longer than 10 mere 10 hrs, smudge free, and with all these I am quite a brand loyal for BOURJOIS paris.. 🙂

  5. I am a total sucker for kajals – will pick this up for sure, although I am in love with Smolder from Mac, I guess cheaper alternatives are always welcome 🙂

  6. Nice review 😛 I tried the eyeconic mascara and loved it ! It stays all day long and keeps my lashes looking pretty 😛 The kajal was out of stock in many places!!!

  7. hey neha, great review. you said you use lotus kajal on waterline..? i have it too, but it smudges a lot…any ideas on how to prevent that? my lids become oily very soon (even after using mac paint pot as a primer 🙁 )

  8. too many question my readers have 🙂
    i dont use this on the waterline coz i dont think this will glide like a waxy kajal
    secondly i have used it on the lower lash liner i have lightly smudged it in the pic

  9. I was just planning to get the colossal kajal and here comes this. Thanks for the review Neha, this appears much better and the price is also good. Have you tried their mascara too. Can you tell which one is better. Colossal or eyeconic

  10. i guess they have launched this to compete against the maybelline colossal. but sounds prettyy awesome neha. I know what you mean by (things i do for reviews hihihih). I relate to that. 😛 looks fab on your eyes. 🙂

  11. To Rati,
    thank you soo muchh for this blog. I’ve been reading this blog since 2 months and now instead of getting addicted to facebook i’m more addicted to your blog. reading this is soo helpful. i can now make a wise decision as to which products to buy. Thank you soo muchh. 🙂

  12. sounds good! but i hope it doesnt smudge like the colossal.. i have very very very oily lids and just about everything smudges on me. and yeah, i do use a primer! i hope .. this becomes my HG kajal.

  13. sounds good! but i hope it doesnt smudge like the colossal.. i have very very very oily lids and just about everything smudges on me. and yeah, i do use a primer! i hope .. this becomes my HG kajal.

  14. Hey Neha! Your eyes are Beautiful! And a nice writeup BTW.. I use Chambors Kajal..but what I hate the most is once you twist doesnt go back :(.. This one sounds really interesting and a must buy types.. 🙂

  15. I am a great fan of the Colossal, but this one sounds just too good to miss ! 😀 could you also give a tutorial , cuz i really loved what you did to your eyes there ! ^_^

  16. Heard its been discontinued….. No stock anywhere! 🙁 but this was such a good product. Will have to go back to colossal. Sheh! 🙁

  17. I use it..its really a vry nc kajol..yet i dnt use colosal i cn tell it firmly dt ds one is really pretty kajol.LAKME EYECONIC KAJOL.:*its smudge proof as it it is qt breaks me out if it is used on waterl9 uncrfully…:/

  18. hi..I think I’ll go for this kajal…I don’t have good experiences with colossal kajal as it never gave me a dark black color! *sobs*

  19. lakme eyeconic eye is not so good. its very light. t cannot define eye with dark shade. yes it is r8 that it is smudge proof but its too much lighter than another companys kajol. Avon glimmerstick is rally better than it. i m telling every gals to dont buy the lakme eyeconic is wastage of money or is not good for waterline…………. *waaa*
