Lakme Glide on Eye Colour Metallic Black Review, Swatch

Lakme Glide on Eye Colour – Metallic Black

Hi all,

Recently, I started a hunt for good eye liners in the form of pencils and markers. I started with Maybelline Vivid Smooth pencils. I had a very good experience and Lotus Herbal’s Eye Contour definer, it doesn’t go well with my eyes. Then, I narrowed down my search to Lakme Glide on Eye Colours. Today, I am going to review about Lakme Glide on Eye Colours.

Lakme have launched glide on colors in 7 seven shades:

• Smoky Green.
• Iridescent Blue.
• Peacock Green.
• Metallic Black.
• Aqua Green.
• Warm Copper.
• Plush Purple.

Lakme Glide on Eye Colour Metallic Black

I bought Lakme glide on eye color – Metallic Black, since I love black colour a lot, but later, I came to know after using the pencil that metallic black is not black, but it is grey and silver combination type of shade.

My Experience with the Lakme Glide on Eye Colours:

The pencil outlook has a common look when compared with Maybelline Vivid smooth pencils, but when it is used, we can get the appealing look. It glides like butter. It is a smudge-proof pencil. It stays in my eyes for 8 -10 hours without getting cornered in my eyes.
Some eye pencils tend to get cornered in our eyes after a long duration, but Lakme doesn’t disappoint me in this issue, since this is the very important point for me. Girls like me working in shifts already have dark circle issues; after using these pencils, it should not make them to look worse.

I am having a wheatish skin tone, so whenever I try to apply Lakme Glide on Eye Color in my upper eye, it is not so visible because of the lighter shade, I need to overdo it to get a good eye makeup. I always prefer to use it in my water line only.

I took this picture without flash:




Waterproof test pictures:


Lakme Glide on Eye Color doesn’t have too much of glittering effect as mentioned by the Lakme. In all my pictures because of flash, it is glittering too much.

Sometimes, I use Lakme glide on eye color over my liquid eyeliner .You can see the picture below.


Likes about Lakme Glide On Eye Colour:

• Pencil is so smooth within one swatch, I can get the entire eye makeup done.
• Wastage is low, whenever it is sharpened, its lead is not breaking into bits.
• It glides well in the waterline without smudging and it is waterproof too.
• It can also be used for smokey eye makeup.
• Price is quite low when compared with other glittering eye pencils. It is totally worth the money.

Dislikes about Lakme Glide On Eye Colour:

• Color is in somewhat lighter shade, so it is not visible on darker skin tones.
• Metallic black doesn’t seems to be dark, it looks like silver-grey shade.

Final Verdict:

This pencil is ideal for waterline and for smokey eye makeup.

Will I Buy It Again?

No, I will try some other shades in Lakme Glide on Colors and a darker shade this time.

Thank you Girls,

    1. Yes it is possible to draw thin lines :waytogo: . I have tried it. But we have to be careful with the swipe , it may break the led.

  2. I have also tried this pencil in peacock green, it’s a lovely colour.
    I loved the pigmentation and the staying power…doesn’t fade at all
    However, I didn’t try it on my waterline, might give it a shot now!
    :thanks: for the review 🙂

  3. lots of eyeliner/khol reviews today :yahoo: all of them are so pretty. I think lakme has a shimmery liquid eye liner too..this one reminds me of that.
