Lakme Absolute Shine Liquid Eye Liner in Sparkling Olive Review

I was stuck in a makeup rut for a while post my pregnancy and to break out of this monotony I decided to indulge in bold lip shades and coloured eyeliners. Lakme absolute shine line eye liner range has some fabulous colours and I decided to try the sparkling olive as I had never tried an olive shimmery liner before. Today I will be reviewing this gorgeous liquid liner from lakme here.

My experience with Lakme Absolute Shine Liquid Eye Liner in Sparkling Olive:

Lakme Absolute Shine Liquid Eye Liner is packaged in a transparent plastic tube with a classy black metallic cap. The see through packaging helps locate the liner easily from my liner stash and I also know how much quantity is still left. The liner brush applicator is sleek, making it easy to draw precise thin lines. Overall Good job with the packaging

Shade/ Colour:
The shade 'Sparkling Olive' from the Lakme Absolute Shine line range is a beautiful olive green with shimmer particles giving a nice metallic finish on application. I love how gorgeous this eyeliner looks on my eyes and is a nice change from the boring black liner. If you are new to coloured eyeliners then this shade is a nice place to start off with as it will look very natural on Indian skin tones.

The formula of this eyeliner is neither runny nor too thick making it just perfect for easy application. It also dries up fast on lids to give a metallic finish with a sheen

Lakme Absolute Shine Liquid Eye Liner is decently pigmented and you need just a single swipe for colour to show up on your lids. But I have noticed the colour kind of looses intensity after drying so I layer it with 3 swipes for beautiful olive lined eyes with a metallic sheen.

Staying power :
This liner range isnt water proof but it is smudge proof and lasts almost all day on my eye lids when I dont rub them. Rubbing this liner causes it to flake and come off so you need to be very careful with that and it may not very long on oily lids too. On average this liner can easily last for 5 hours. since this liner isnt water proof removing it off is very easy all you need is a mild face wash and there is no trace of shimmer left around eyes after removal which is great.

Availability: Easy, I brought mine online.

Overall I am loving this liquid eyeliner from lakme which is a nice change from wearing black liner. If you love coloured liners do give this range a try. I would say this shade olive is a good colour for beginners if you are new to coloured liners.
