Lakme Absolute Gel Addict Eyeliner Review Swatches Photos

As soon as I saw this newly launched gel eyeliner by lakme I wanted to buy them. I ordered it online through amazon and got it in two days. There are seven different shades in this range and i ordered the tempting teal shade.

Price : 800 INR
Quantity : 2.3gm

What Lakme Says : 

Glossy look deconstructed by Backstage experts at Lakme Fashion week. Get addicted to this unique gel texture for super precise application and all day intense color.

My Take on the Product : 
It looks like a color paint pot which is small and cute. Its packed in a glass pot. At first i was searching for the brush on opening the cap. But i did not find it there and i found the brush after i just pulled the top of the cap. There is a section in between the cap and on pulling it you can see the brush. The brush was medium in size and thicker. The eye liner gel has a very smooth texture and tempting teal shade is in bluish-green color. When i dipped the brush in to the pot it just went inside the gel eyeliner as it had a so smooth texture. On applying with the brush (Aaahhh you really need to know the trick to apply gel eyeliner), it glides so smooth and i did not feel like am applying at all. I was not comfortable with the brush given because when i apply on a spot and applying again on the same spot takes of the already applied eyeliner. So i dabbed a little by little and then tried to glide it. The pigmentation is nice and it has very very tiny shimmer particles with the same teal color on it but the shimmer thing will not be shown up on your eyes. I tried applying this with the eyeliner brush i have and it came out so well. It takes some time to get dried and I need to layer to get the intense teal color.

On applying with the brush it also tends to get spread on your lash lines so you have to be very careful on applying. More product is required to get the best pigmentation. I applied and left it for four hours and noticed the eyeliner smudged a little in my lower lash line but upper lash line remained as it is. But the effect it gives to your eyes is nice and beautiful. You can skip your eye shadow if you are applying this on both upper and lower lash lines. I sprinkled some water on my eyes and found its waterproof but if you rub it with your hands a little will be gone :-(.. If you need a Aqua eyes look you can go with this tempting teal as it shows up your eyes

Pros : 

  • packaging is cute
  • Brush is attached with the cap and its easy for travel
  • very smooth texture
  • I have a sensitive skin and it did not irritate my lash lines
  • safe for contact lens wearers

Cons :

  • Very small quantity 
  • Overly priced 
  • Brush could have been designed well.
  • can wear off a bit if you rub too much

F&M Rating : 4/5
Overall I would say the tempting teal shade shows the eyes brighter and you can go for it if you want to try a gel eyeliner in different shades.
