|A revolutionary mascara with long term curl memory formula that gives your lashes volume, color & lots of drama! It’s safe for the eyes and a simple solution for dramatic volume and gorgeous lashes.
Lakme Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara comes in a sleek black cylindrical tube with a circular silver strip around the cap. It comes in two variants: Volumizing & Dramatic Eyes. I picked up Dramatic version as I have kind of poker straight non-existent lashes which craves for volume & length to prove their presence. The packaging like mentioned is nothing fancy here, very straight, simple & functional. The applicator is something we find very commonly with most of the variants: short spiky pliable bristles.
I have been using this since a month, where initially the formula was nice with perfect consistency but now it has started to thickening up a bit & clumps soon in about 2 coats. When new I could easily build up 3-4 coats without any major clumping issues . The bristles are spaced enough for precise lash separation & denser enough for adding up the volume. The formula does adds up considerable amount of volume & length to my lashes with jet black pigmentation but nothing exceptional so as to be called *dramatic* here. It makes my lashes look exist but if you have naturally thicker & longer lashes, might not find a major difference. I do need a lash curler here as the formula is not able to provide that crisp natural curls though it holds the curls pretty well till the wear time without weighing down the lashes. The finish is smooth & even without any brittleness or dryness. It wears for good 7-8 hours on me before I could see my lashes getting back to actual again. The mascara sets in pretty fast & is fairly easy to remove without needing any oil based removers. It comes out clean with few splashes of water which means it does smudge (in case comes in contact with wet medium) and is not completely waterproof. The formula doesn’t sting or irritate eyes in any manner.
Overall I find it very basic mascara which gives a considerable definition to lashes but not something extremely dramatic making a transformation to eyes. It makes up for a nice regular wear formula which stays put for whole day & comes out easily without much efforts. However the formula might give in clumping issues with regular use where it starts to thicken a bit.
This is after 3 coats of Mascara!
- Simple, sleek & functional packaging.
- Light weight formula with perfect consistency.
- Sets in pretty fast.
- Jet black pigmentation.
- Long wearing.
- Can be removed easily.
- Smooth & even finish.
- Adds considerable amount of length & volume.
- It doesn’t stand upto the claim of giving a Dramatic Eyes!
- The formula might give clumping issues going down the usage.
Though it proved to be good budget daily wear mascara, falls back for its claim of resulting for a dramatic lash effect. There wasn’t enough volume build up to be called as dramatic or length making any much difference.
