 Lakme Eyeconic Kajal Brown Review and Swatches

By Contributor: Sharmistha

I am back! Yes I was bored of buying and then doing reviews but later realized that it’s a part of my life I can’t stay without it. It’s been a year I am in blogging world! There are lots of fantastic new launches happening every other day in beauty world. Our very own Indian drugstore brand Lakme recently launched 5 new colored kajals in their Eyeconic range. All the 5 Shades are as follows: White, Grey, Green, Blue, Brown.

Lakme Eyeconic Kajal Brown: Review, Swatches and EOTD

Lakme Eyeconic Kajal Brown is a deep matte chocoalate-y brown shade. It’s very deep and dark. I like the shade a lot. It is much pigmented and needs a single swipe of color to easily show up on lids however after building up the shade, it gives you an intense finish and color. It will suit fair to medium skin tones very well however dusky skin tones have to make it work by covering pigmented eyelids with concealer.

Other brown kajals and eye pencils don’t show up on my waterline. This shows up really well and stays for pretty decent hours.

The texture is smooth, soft and creamy though not highly creamy. The application goes on smooth and doesn’t break during application. It does not tug or pull during the application.The formula is smudge proof and waterproof so it’s a complete yaayyy product according to me. It stays on my eyelids for 7-8 hours without budging or fading. On waterline it fades after 4-5 hours which according to me is really good. It doesn’t cause any irritation to my eyes.

The packaging is same like Eyeconic Black kajal, simple retractable, only at the bottom a blue strip has the shade name Brown. The packaging is same old and only the white kajal has an all white packaging which is quite nice and can be identified easily.

  7. Wow, it looks beautiful on you Sharmistha :) Lovely pics!

    People are going gaga over the white kajal, personally I dont understand why, I would never wear white! Brown looks like a really good option.

    • Ohh yes you so correct, i simply detest the white kajal..
      that shade is not meant for indian skin tones.. :(
      This is the prettiest shade out of all the shades from the eyeconic range.

      Btw thanks so much.. :)

  8. lovely eye swatch Sharmistha! <3 you applied it so beautifully!! somehow brown eyeliners never show up on my dark eyelids :(

  9. I’ve been shying away from the white one. White eyeliner on my eyes is too bold of a look for me. But brown seems great for everyday wear!
