To follow me in Facebook click here

Kajal / Kohl is an eternal part of Indian Makeup. What say? I love Kohl's they define your eyes so well. I have tried many of them. 

For the past 4-5 years I was consistantly using MAC Techna Kohl in Graph Black. I have used umpteen number of them already. It costed me INR 1100 bucks and lasted me about 6-8 months.

One day my sister suggested Lakme Ikonic Kajal to me. I used hers and tested it all day. And to my surprise it is an amazing product. It DARK Black in color. It stays on your eyes definitely for 10 hours as they claim. It doesn't BUDGE. Doesn't irritate my eyes. Yes its waterproof.  

And the best part its only INR 199/- Wow!! 20% the cost of MAC and will last me the same amount of time. So I save 900 bucks and get a MAC lippie?? ;) 

The packaging is convenient retractable so no sharpener business and so no wastage. The body is made of plastic in black and has a blue ring at the bottom end. The like the color combo used in packaing. Black and aqua blue. Very Vibrant.  Comes with black plastic top. 

What I like about Lakme Ikonic Kajal:

  • Color - Dark jet black
  • Staying power more than 10 hours
  • Smudge proof
  • Non irritating
  • Waterproof
  • Value for money
  • Convenient retractablepackaging and attractive looking too. 

What I don't like about Lakme Ikonic Kajal:
  • Nothing at all. 
Notice how dark the black is?

Over all rating:  5/5

Price: INR 199/- 

Will I repurchase: Yes, ofcourse its my staple now. 

Where did it buy it from: Off the shelf. You get Lakme everywhere in India. 

This is how it looks on me:
