Lakme Absolute Royal Collection Shine Line Brown Shimmer Review and Swatches

By Contributor: Monica

Brown seems to be the new pink in my life. I am super obsessed with everything brown these days, be it kajal, nail paints or this liner. After I bought the lakme eyeconic kajal in brown I realized that brown kajals and eyeliners suit me better than black ones, as in they don’t look OTT for work and give a nice smokey look too. Anyways I went with few friends to a beauty shop to buy some lipsticks, there the SA swatched the new Lakme Liquid liner in Brown Shimmer on my hand which I will review and swatch today, it looked so pretty that I instantly bought it. These shine line eyeliners are available in 9 colors: Blue, Teal, Silver, Pink, Golden, Smokey Grey.

Lakme Claims: Grab the spotlight on a single stroke application with three lustrous colors for high definition eye line. Long Lasting.

Packaging: this eyeliner comes in a transparent slim bottle with a silver-greyish cap. I like the transparent packaging as you can see the amount of product left inside.

Shade: as the name itself says Brown Shimmer the eyeliner is a shiny brown shade with lots of shimmer in it. A very gorgeous shade.

Texture: the texture of the eyeliner is not very thick but not runny also. It’s the correct consistency for an eyeliner which doesn’t take ages to dry.

Pigmentation: Now this is where I feel it lacks a bit. Although it’s decently pigmented and shows beautifully in hand swatches but on the lids, I have to swipe it atleast 3 times for the color to show properly. I have 2 more of these shine lines- olive and black, and both show up beautifully in 1 swipe only. Seeing this I wonder whether this particular shade would show on dusky beauties or not.

Staying Power: Once put on lids, it stays intact the whole day, which is 10 hours max in my case, unless you rub in between. A single rubbing of eyes and it would flake easily. Also, this is waterproof so won’t go with only a splash of water. You need to use a makeup remover to remove it.

Price: Rs.290.

Dupe: Now if you don’t want to spend 290 on an eyeliner, try Elle 18 Color Pop Liquid Eyeliner in Brown. The shade is almost same but the Elle 18 one is less Pigmented than Lakme one so would require multiple swipes.

VNA Rating: 4/5

Do I Recommend? Lakme Absolute Shine Line Eyeliner Brown Shimmer is a very nice shiny brown eyeliner which looks beautiful on eyes. Dusky beauties can try and see if it shows on them. I am in love with these shine lines, already have 3 and eyeing the blue now.
