Lakme Absolute Royal by Sabyasachi- Shine Line in Golden : Review/Swatches

Lakme Absolute Shine Line in Golden (INR 290/4.5 ml) is a gorgeous Golden liquid eyeliner released as a part of Lakme Absolute Royal Collection by Sabyasachi. I have wanted a liquid golden eyeliner for long now and as I chanced upon this liquid eyeliner from Lakme's New Absolute Royal Collection, I happily picked it up and here's my review on the same..

The product claims:

Rich, intense color in one stroke that stays true for hours. Create smouldering eyes with bold shades that redefine the look of liquid eyeliner.
*Intense Color              *Long Wearing Polymer                *Water Based formula

The eyeliner is a gorgeous metallic golden shade, but the pigmentation is medium and not quite intense in one stroke. I have to layer it twice to get good color intensity. The formula is water based so it spreads easily and the brush tip is fine so you can draw thin lines with it too. It is definitely long wearing and water proof so you need a makeup remover to take it off. 

My only concern is since it has to be layered, you have to be careful with application. More than three layers will cause the formula to turn a bit stretchy on the lids and thus, may be uncomfortable. I think it is because of the long wearing polymers. It really doesn't flake but just becomes stretchy after 3 layers. 

Overall, it's a great color to work with and I can see myself using it very often for creating dramatic looks as well as daily wear looks with a twist. There are 6 great shades to choose from in this range and you are sure to find one that suits you.

    1. No Poonam, I did not experience any such issues with this liner, neither with the other Lakme Absolute Shine line that I have in Black. Yes, the Lakme Insta Liner did use to sting.

  2. Looks lovely... but I think it'll have extremely limited use in the office look. My loss! :(
