Today’s review will be on a classic black eyeliner from Lotus Herbals and it’s from their “Hypnotica” range. So, let’s get straight to the review.
My Experience with Lotus Makeup Intense Black Hypnotica Pearl Shine Long Lasting Eyeliner:
This liner comes in a red outer cardboard packaging. The actual liner comes in a very tiny black pot with a very long black handle. The tip is felt tip and is hard but is easy to apply on the lids. The packaging is pretty tiny and very cute. The long handle reminds me of Louboutin nail paints. :p The felt tip enables you to create a very fine line hence giving you maximum precision. The bottle doesn’t leak even when kept horizontally, which is great!
“Intense Black” is a nice black shade which doesn’t look as stark when it’s wet, but when it dries completely, it looks like a jet black shade. It doesn’t have any pearly effect or shine. It dries matte which I’m a bit disappointed about. I wanted a shimmery or a metallic finish eyeliner, or shiny black liner, but nonetheless, this is pretty good too. The pigmentation is nice too. You need two layers to make it completely opaque.
The formula is nice, it is neither too thick nor too thin. It goes on nice and smooth on the lids. It dries pretty quickly and doesn’t smudge much. What I like the most is the pigment does not spread everywhere when you take it off with a makeup remover. It also goes off very easily with just two swipes of a wet wipe. Also, it doesn’t flake or crumble, which is a yay!
It stays on the lids for 3-4 hours which isn’t what they claim. They claim it to be long lasting and I don’t think it is long lasting.
Pros of Lotus Makeup Intense Black Hypnotica Pearl Shine Long Lasting Eyeliner:
- Tiny, cute, travel friendly packaging.
- Matte black shade.

Cons of Lotus Makeup Intense Black Hypnotica Pearl Shine Long Lasting Eyeliner:

Would I Recommend/Repurchase Lotus Makeup Intense Black Hypnotica Pearl Shine Long Lasting Eyeliner?
Yes, I would recommend, but I wouldn’t repurchase as I have a lot of matte black eyeliners in my stash.
