Today I am going to review newly launched Eyeconic Kajal by Lakme. I love their entire range of kajals. I have two of them. This one looks very dramatic on me. Let’s get into the review.

My Experience with Lakme Eyeconic Kajal Royal Blue:
Packaging is very similar to their other kajals. It comes in a sturdy black and turquoise blue packaging. Only the shade name is printed at the bottom of the pencil. If you have many shades from this range, then it becomes quite difficult to find only one shade. I need to open all the pencils to pick one up. They should change at least the cap’s color. Otherwise the retractable pencil is easy to use and obviously travel friendly.
I had never tried any royal blue shade for my eyes before this. But again this is not a proper royal blue color. I was expecting it to deliver deepest blue shade. But this new royal blue is a normal medium to deep blue shade with some silver shimmer. Silver shimmer makes it little different. Actually this shade is not as pigmented as other shades. That’s why it looks a little light on eye. One swipe provides very sheer silvery blue shade.
It always needs multiple swipes for the true color to show up. In a single swipe, shimmer is more noticeable than the blue color on my water line. It might not be the exact deepest royal blue shade, still it looks so good on me. Micro shimmers make it look shiny. Shimmers are not overpowering, they look really great. It makes my eyes look so dramatic; totally gives a beautiful touch to my olive skin tone. It can be worn daily if you like.
Texture & Quality:
It has a very smooth texture. It glides on my eye smoothly. It goes on my waterline without any tugging. It glides easily on the eyelids also. If I want smoky look, then you need to blend it quickly. It can be used as an eye shadow base also. But lower pigmentation takes extra time for the color to show up. So for me, it is better off as a kajal. Its formula is smudge- proof and waterproof.
I must say that this is a long lasting kajal. As Lakme claims, it is a 10hr kajal, but it stays for almost 8 hrs on me. After that, it starts fading a little. On my waterline, it stays for 5-6 hrs nicely. If I rub my eyes unintentionally it still never smudges much.
I love this shade. I was not expecting this shade to look as great on me as it does. I am totally obsessed with this blue.
