Hello Lovely Ladies, today I will review a product regarding which honestly I have mixed feelings. I love it the most and may be because of that I wish it could have been much better, to become my HG eye pencil. It is Lakme Perfect Definition Eye Pencil Dark Chocolate.
I bought it last year from a local store searching for a brown kohl.
I don’t remember exactly, but it was about 125-150 INR I guess. Two shades are available – Midnight Black and Dark Chocolate.
What the Company Says:
Pencils that outline the eyes to make them look sharp. Available in different shades to make your eyes enticing. Easy to sharpen and use.
My Take on Lakme Perfect Definition Eye Pencil:
I just love the colour of this one. It’s not the dark brown which we get mostly (for example, Colorbar I Glide Cocobar). Well, you can compare it to a darker version of the shade “Burnt Sienna” (remember camel oil pastels you used in school, there were two types of brown, one deep and another lighter, what I am referring to is a darker version of the latter). The shade has got some red/orange undertones to it, but not over the top. It is a very wearable colour, especially for day wear.
Here’s a reference for the colour (I guess I have confused you enough ! ).
The packaging is pretty cheap, just like any other regular pencil, but I don’t have much complaint about that as it is sturdy, travel friendly, and the cap stays in its place. The texture of the pencil is creamy, so no tugging or harsh lines, and it glides well. Two to three swipes are necessary for a dark colour.
It can be worn safely on the waterline, no stinging or burning sensation. The SA had told me that the product was smudge proof and long lasting, well it isn’t. The colour fades away in 2-3 hours and smudges like most eye pencils, so you would need touch-ups at regular interval and you have to set it with an eyeshadow, but I think its okay with most of us here (blame it on me, I am damn lazy with these two things, and that’s the sole reason for me having mixed feelings regarding the product). Even if it smudges, you don’t look racoon eyed because the colour is very light.
(LEFT- 3 Swipes. RIGHT- 1 swipe).
Here’s how it looks on me—(please ignore my clumsiness and undone eyebrows).
I have worn it over upper and lower lash lines and waterlines and topped it off with some mascara.
Pros of Lakme Perfect Definition Eye Pencil
- Creamy texture, glides well.
- No stinging, safe to be used on waterlines.
- Buildable colour, perfect for day wear.
- Travel-friendly packaging.
Cons of Lakme Perfect Definition Eye Pencil
- Smudges and needs touch ups.
- No mention of ingredients.
- No mention about shelf life.
- Needs to be sharpened.
Would I Buy It Again?
YES!, If I don’t get a similar shade which doesn’t smudge (that’s why I am pestering Rati so much about browns and eye pencils 😛 )
3.95/5 (-1 for smudging, -0.05 for my whims!)
