Lakme Absolute Forever Silk Eyeliner comes as a glossy black one way twist up pencil form with a coloured band on the cap indicating the shade. The pencil is not retractable and one needs to be careful while twisting up. Leaving that it looks sleek & attractive.
Earth Line is an in & out deep intense matte Chocolate Brown! Layered few swipes it borders black on my lids. It’s a superb easy to carry everyday shade. I find it a great shade for much subdued smoky looks. The texture is super soft & buttery with a nice slip to it which glides effortlessly on lids. The formula blends & smudges extremely well. One needs to be careful during application or else a wee bit of pressure can crumble or break the tip. However, the texture has good slip to it ensuring a smooth glide on lids without any pressure. The shade is richly pigmented & gives a true bang on opaque colour with a single pass. It takes little time to settle giving time to work with, after which it transforms into smudge proof & water proof formula which wears superbly without any budging or creasing whole day. Lakme claimed upto 8 hours of wear but it flared longer on my dry lids with slight fading in the inner corners! On my waterline it wore for good 3.5 hours (I have extremely watery eyes!) without any irritation or discomfort.
I don’t see any downside with the shade & the formula but because of the buttery texture it gets used up fast. I am already half way down the product in just about two weeks! (Yes I use this everyday!) And also the tip becomes blunt after few uses making it difficult to get thinner lines.
