|The first of its kind water-resistant, smudge-proof, jet black kohl pencil for the perfect smokey eye. Its unique moisturizing ceremides soothe and soften lashes. Safe to apply inside the eye while giving the ultimate, long lasting, jet black lines.
Lakme Absolute Kohl comes as a plastic bodied sharpenable pencil with a rubberized smudger at the other end. I got mine from Jabong & it came without inclusive of the sharpener. The smudger is quiet stiff to be used for smudging & tugs my lid area badly. Other than that it’s a simple no fuss basic packaging.
It has got extremely soft & creamy texture sans being fragile or crumbly which glides smoothly & evenly without any tugs or pulls. Lakme gave extraordinary tall claims for this kohl & I must say it nailed in every segment! The kohl has got deep jet black pigmentation which gives stiff competition to blackest kohl I have known –MAC Smolder! Infact it outdated MAC Smolder in pigmentation. A single pass packs a rich jet black color on lids & waterline. I have extremely watery eyes & most of the kohls don’t flare beyond an hour or two but this fabulous formula stays put for good 4-5 hours on waterline with slight fading though (not to an extent where I need a retouch) and I couldn’t be more happier! It never stings or irritates my eyes where it earns more brownie points. I have never seen this fading from my lids! The maximum limit I tested this was for 10 hours and the pigmentation was very much intact without any glaring signs of fading. I need a good eye makeup remover to wipe this off completely as it won’t go off easily with my routine cleanser despite of not being water proof.
It settles down as smudge proof formula without any creasing or budging issues on my dry lids. The formula gives enough lapse to work on it before settling down & it smudges beautifully without compromising on the intensity.Despite being water resistant it don’t budge easily with light splashes of water to give racoon eyes & can take care sweating issues quiet well. The only grudge is the product wastage during sharpening and the product being creamy itself, gets used up fast. It does comes with a heavy price tag but worth every penny and a must have for Kohl lovers.
