Lakme Absolute Gel Addict Liner : Metallic Bronze
MRP: Rs. 800
Color: Lakme has launched this beautiful range of gel liners last year. I purchased Metallic Bronze on my recent shopping trip, as name depicts it is a beautiful Bronze shade with metallic sheen. But the negative point is that the color doesn’t have depth and much of the coverage. in single swipe. You need to layer it to show the bronze color effectively on the eyes, specially on upper eye lid.
Packaging: The product comes in a round jar with a long cap. The cap has a detachable brush inside which is very handy and has smooth bristles. The brush is ideal for application, It is curved at the edges that helps to create a thin to medium and thicker line. I found the packaging very innovative and cult.
Texture/formula: The texture is very smooth and ideal. It spreads evenly and neither it is too thick nor too runny and gives a precise application. And the best part is that it is water proof, yay yayy..i love it 🙂
Longevity: It stayed on me all day long, i wore it to the office. The color was intact and so was the metallic sheen. I had the wear time of 7-8 hours.
Removal: As this is waterproof liner, so you need a good oil based makeup remover to completely remove it.
My Verdict: Metallic Bronze is a nice shade, i just wish the color had more intensity and richness. I had to layer it to have the desired color, but then too it felt very lightweight on the eyes. This is the first Indian brand that has come up with the colored gel liners and i am very impressed with it. Totally recommend!! and i would love to try the other shades from the same range.
