- Smart curl brush
- Intense black finish
When I learnt lakme has come up with two new releases , a mascara and a kajal, I knew I had to get them. The reason being im liking lakme a lot these days, I think we all need to see how much lakme innovates and keep giving us more and more and being an indigenous brand that it is, I think it is really competitive and best in its own right. I recently started loving enrich satin lippies again after I bought 158 and 129 and 134 and 152 as well. So here goes my thoughts on the new Lakme Eyeconic Mascara.
First of all I really love the packaging and the whole feel to it. Even the name has a ring to it . I understand they might have been inspired by some other brand doing well in terms of everyday kajal and mascara. Even the name eye-conic reminds of colossal’s eye-am 😛 but I not going to demean any beauty product uselessly which is new on the block. I am going to do a tiny comparison and no last word on which is better, colossal , hypercurl or eyeconic .:)
I love the price point as well. At 250 of an introductory price, I think its going to do very well. I personally like the packing better than colossal or hypercurl. The tube they have is really long, the cuts it has are also very pretty. The brush is curled, meant for a better curl. Remember the mascara claims a curl, not thicken, lengthen or waterproof. Hence keep in mind it should do well on the curling department.
The pack does not mention waterproof. I ran a test and it read out it is not waterproof at all. Again, I ran a time test for how long it takes to dry, it took me upto five minutes or may be more to dry the simple two coats , something I don’t like considering I appaly mascara last on eyemakeup agenda.
Another thing I saw is that it did not curl my lashes much like you can see.my lashes are always poke straight even though I use all kinds of curling tools. The mascara would do better at curling someone’s else’s lashes than mine.
The finishes is semi dramatic for me. It does not lengthen my alshes but it just coats it thick black. I like two coats for this one . Removal can be a lesser pain considering its not waterproof. I use lakme remover in blue which I had reviewed and it leaves me all black eyed like all other mascara. But definitely it is an easy wash, not something like my covergirl lash blast.
Since I dont own colossal , I am going to compare it with hypercurl. Hypercurl gives me better length I feel and more intense blackness. The cost I similar too and packaging lakme has is more impressive, I stand very confused whether I would buy this, colossal or hypercurl once I finish this.
I cant deny that the product has a tremendous appeal to it. I can call it semi dramatic, not curling ,for myself. It is an easy to remove non waterproof mascara which will be liked by many. The long tube and the curled handle, everything on this one has great feel to it. Honestly I wasn’t floored by it but it offers a great variation in the market of mascara at this price point of 250. I am recommending this to everyone who wants a change from colossal and hypercurl. Over all, a nice fresh release from lakme.
