Lakme Eyeconic White Review, Swatches & 3 Ways to Use

Hi my beauties, after a long time I am reviewing a product, and today under my scanner is the very trending Lakme Eyeconic White. All of you must have read a lot of rave reviews about the product. Today I will giving a general review along with 3 ways the product can be used.

Lakme Eyeconic White is a white Kohl and one of the 5 new shades that the brand has come up with.

Price: Rs250/

Packaging: Like any other contemporary Kohl/Kajal Lakme Eyeconic White comes in a nice cardboard packaging. The pencil has white body with a twist mouth and turquoise lettering.

The Product: Lakme Eyeconic White is a white Kohl pencil which promises a 10 hr long no smudge coverage with a waterproof  formula. What Lakme says about it:

Reinvent your everyday look with the all new Lakmé Eyeconic White. With a deep colored stroke in an easy twist up format, it gives your eyes a long-lasting, Eyeconic look throughout the day.Smudge proof, water proof and dermatologically tested; Lakmé’s Eyeconic White accentuates your eyes and makes them look bigger and brighter.

My Take:The Lakme Eyeconic White is a milky white Kohl that can surely become a makeup enthusiast's best friend. It can create real iconic eye makeup. The application is smooth and and smudge-free. The packaging is very travel friendly and you can carry it around inside your purse and can use it anytime you want to. The product is waterproof and so very useful for contact lens wearers like me. The staying power is quite decent and it stays for 5-6 hours straight, although 10 hrs stay is a long claim. The texture of the product is very soft and it glides on your lids like a cream.

The kohl is very pigmented and a single swipe is enough to give a very nice shade.

To top up, it can create lovely looks as it is a contrast to darker shades like black.

Apart from the usual way, white liner can be used in multiple ways too.Here are 3 ways I have tried out the product:

  • Eyeshadow Base: I have very oily lids and find it very difficult to apply shadow as most bright colours hardly show on the lids. I had used this product as an eye shadow base and got really wonderful results.
  • Highlighter: I have used the Lakme Eyeconic White as a highlighter and applied on the inner corners of my eyes and on the brow bone area.
  • Eye Brightener: As white is an eye brightener, the Lakme Eyeconic White can be used to brighten your eyes for a perky look. 

And here is the finished look:

1. Smudge-proof
2. Waterproof
3. 5-6 hrs stay power
4. Not irritating for eyes/skin
5. Smooth Application
6. Travel-friendly
7. Mutipurpose
8. Nice pigmentation

1. Does not stay for 10 hours as claimed

Rating: 4.75/5

The Lakme Eyeconic White is a one of a kind product and can create magic with proper application, a superb kohl that can be used in a multiple to create unique looks without much effort.
