I am back with another exciting review of Lakme Absolute Gel Addict Eyeliner!
I must say, its one of the reviews I have been wanting to post in a while but wanted to use the product enough to be able to share my opinion on it.
Lets begin with some facts first, this is a gel eyeliner from Lakme and i have it in the shade ‘Tempting Teal’. This was one of the most widely used product during the Lakme fashion week and claims to be smudgeproof and waterproof. You get 2.3 g of the product and retails at Rs.800. However, I had ordered mine from Nykaa website and got some it at discounted price of around Rs. 650. There are more shades in this line as well.
The packaging is really cute like that of a nail polish bottle and has a small liner brush attached on the top of the bottle. You need to pull out the applicator brush to use it.
Teal is my favourite color and I have been looking for a gel liner in teal for a very long time, I use the Chambor eyeliner pencil in teal at the moment and love it!! but being a gel liner fan, I was on look out for teal shade in gel liner. Looking at some gorgeous pictures of Tempting Teal gel eyeliner used on models during the Lakme Fashion week, I was awestruck! I had to get it…but this shade was always very difficult to find. Finally, I got it in stock on Nykaa
When I received the package, I was super excited! I open the package and got dejected!! That was because the color of the gel liner was sky blue in color!! and I was so sure that maybe I was sent some incorrect color. I checked the name of the package and it read ‘Tempting Teal’! I was like how can a sky blue color be called TEAL!
Finally, I picked some of the liner to swatch and it swatched TEAL!! OMG…I can’t express my relief and happiness! The reason of sharing this story with you is purely to confirm that though the liner in the bottle looks light blue in color…it swatches dark teal!!
The color is gorgeous!! totally true to its claim – smudgeproof and waterproof. Glides on like butter and stayed all day long. Though, if you look closely, it has the tiniest bit of sparkle particles to it. But that is what it gives the rich look. The sparkle particles are so small that you may not even notice them unless looked closely. So, definitely wearable color during day and in office.
Given the good experience with this product..I am really tempted to order other shades from this line. Its a bit expensive than other gel eyeliners in the market from Maybelline or Loreal..but I would say given the color range and the long staying power, its worth the money. And a little bottle goes a long way!
If you have tried any other shades from this line, let me know your experiences too. Hope this review is helpful to you!
