The Good:
       
  • These are super pigmented, one swipe! You are all set J
  • Rich and creamy consistency, glides on like a dream – No scratching business, clean, ultra smooth application
  • Total value for money
  • Sharpening is easy, I use my L’Oreal dual sharpener, it works well with Lakme’ sharpeners too J
  • Does not smudge, bleed or melt, stays put for hours!
  • Can be used on water line too, at least I use it, it never hurts my eyes J
  • Water proof – yes J but can be easily removed using makeup removers/cleansing milk.
  • You can blend them with shadows as well, but you have to be real quick else it will dry up soon.
  • Vibrant shades available to choose from J
  • A shelf life of 2 yrs which is a boon for eyeliner addicts like me J
  • The cap and bottom of the pencil has the exact shade as that of the liner, this helps us to pick them up easily even while in a hurry J
  • Travel friendly classy sturdy packing J

The Bad:
      

  •      Availability in India L


This is my HG liner at the moment J

Few Eyeliner Facts J 

Eyeliner was first used in Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia as a dark black line around the eyes. As early as 10,000 BC, Egyptians wore various cosmetics not only for aesthetics but to protect the skin from the desert sun. 

Research has also speculated that eyeliner was worn to protect the wearer from the evil eye.

Egyptians produced eyeliner with a variety of materials including lead, copper ore and antimony.
