Lakme Eyeconic Curling Mascara Review : I’m always on the lookout for affordable mascaras. I love wearing them everyday as my eye lashes are practically non-existent, but at the same time I do not like to spend a lot on them as they dry up pretty quickly. I’ve found mascaras that I’ve loved, but most of them are the not-so-cheap ones. I’m yet to find a decent affordable mascara that I’d like to stick to for the rest of my life. In the quest to find my holy grail mascara (that is affordable) I tried this one and here are my thoughts on Lakme Eyeconic Curling Mascara Review.
Price: Rs250 for 9ml.
The mascara is bottled in a black curved bottle, which is pretty sturdy, with Lakme Eyeconic Curling Mascara written on it. I think it looks nice. The cap is screw on, with the mascara wand attached to it.
The wand is curved, which as far as I am concerned, made for an easier application. The bristles are short and are densely arranged in clumps.
The formulation itself leans toward thicker side, although not too thick. On application, it dries up pretty quick. It isn’t really water resistant but will not come off easily with just water. For proper removal you’ll need a makeup remover.
It is a curling mascara, but if you really need visibly curled lashes you’ll need to use a lash curler beforehand. If a curler is not used, the curling action, though present, is not very noticeable. It does lengthen my lashes a little, though. However, there is no volumising action at all. It opens up my eye but is very subtle. That’s what I look for in an everyday mascara.
Apply once and it separates your lashes and opens up your eye. Apply it the second time for a wee bit of lengthening. I wouldn’t recommend any more applications, because you will only end up clumping your lashes together. Also even in the first two applications, try not to be heavy handed or you could end up clumping your lashes together.
It’s a fairly decent mascara for every day use. It curls ( very subtly) and lengthens your lashes and in general opens up your eyes, making them look groomed. If that’s what you’re after do get it. Anything more and you;ll have to look elsewhere.
- Curved wand makes applying mascara easy.
- Dries fast
- Easily available
- Lengthens lashes.
- Comes off easily.
- Not waterproof.
- Could get clumpy if one is heavy handed in application.
- Curling action is not that great for a curling mascara.
- No volumizing action that I noticed.
Overall Rating: 3.5/5
A decent, affordable mascara for everyday use. (Not my holy grail mascara, though. ) Dramatic eyelash lovers stay away. Also, if you prefer water resistant mascaras, this one is not for you.
