Lakme Eyeconic Curling Mascara





Lakme is one of the greatest Indian brands which started off with low budget products but later revamped itself into a major brand. Lakme had disappointed me in past. Many of its cream based products caused me irritation and bumps, for example Lakme Sunscreen. This is why I was never excited in trying out their products. The question that arises now is why did I buy Lakme mascara then? Firstly, for a beginner it suited my budget and secondly because the packaging stated it to be a curling mascara. 



Lakme Eyeconic Curling Mascara comes in a black and turquoise packaging similar to the Eyeconic Kajal. It has an unusual shape which makes me resemble its wand. The mascara has a slight bend (that is why it kept rolling on floor while I tried to capture its image). It retails for Rs 300 for net content of 9ml. This product claims to give your eyes intense black finish. Now let’s zoom away from the packaging and move ahead to the product. The product has a slight bent in its mascara wand exclusively designed to curl up your eyelashes, perhaps to evade the usage of an eye lash curler. Since I use no eyelash curler, I felt tempted to the idea of getting benefits of the same without investing on another product and thus not increasing one more step to complete my look (yes, you can call me lazy :p ).



The wand is made in this way so as to make application easier and to give them the curled effect. The consistency of mascara is neither too runny nor too thick; it is somewhere in between. One thing that I adore about this mascara is that it does not clump your lashes and hence no fake look. Maybelline Falsies, one of the best mascara available in India has the tendency to clump, this is why I always have to use another mascara wand (product of which has been emptied) to comb my lashes through. Lakme Eyeconic Curling Mascara wand does not have long bristles, perhaps this is why it helps in combing out the excess product. One coat wouldn’t create exclusive glammed up look but two to three coats are good enough to give length to your lashes. Its wand, because of its short bristles also makes application convenient while coating your lower lashes.  In all, it is an ideally good product for those of you who want their makeup to not look ‘made up’ but subtle. It is perfect for everyday look. One major drawback of it would be that it is not waterproof.


RATING- 3.8 out of 5

CONS:-
         ·       It is not waterproof
         ·       The sale of the product began with Rs 250 and now it had                  been hiked upto Rs 300.
         ·       Not voluminous enough unlike other mascaras.
PROS:-
 ·       Although at MRP of Rs 300, it still remains budget friendly mascara.
 ·       Does not clump your eyelashes
 ·       No need for separately using an Eyelash Curler.

My Cutesy Stash - Miniso Haul Unleash!

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
Side Story - I intentionally changed the font of this blog post; reason as such is nothing but I decided to break-free from the monotonous font type. But unfortunately, the font decided to bug me later on so I ended up with the same comforting font. 
In today's blog post, I will be sharing with you all my recent haul from the store of Miniso. For people who haven't encountered a Miniso outlet as of yet, Miniso is a well known Japanese brand which brings to you a lot of quirky and cute stuff which is reasonably priced and none of your money will go wasted, trust me! They have an amazing collection of utility products from the genre of beauty, kitchenware, stationery, electronics, accessories, etc. Moreover, the prices of these products start from INR 150 and the maximum, I believe, is around INR 1000, that too for PU bags. 


Recently, I happen to discover another Miniso Delhi store which was mere 2 metro stations away from where I live.…

3 Best Toners for Combination to Oily/Acne Prone Skin

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨

Today’s post is an in-depth discussion on toners in general, what’s been trending lately and inexpensive toners that are available in case you have a skin type that synchronizes with mine. Now, it’s as hard to classify my skin into one genre as a Myer’s personality test’s results. In short, probably those given two options won’t be enough to understanding my personality. Anyways, let’s cut short weird examples and focus on to the topic that has been raised. Naturally, to initiate further this discussion, we need to discuss what a toner is and why we need one in our lives. 

WHAT IS A TONER? Male or female, we are entering a no-gender biased zone. The concept behind toners is that the facial skin, even after the process of cleansing, is left with trails of pollution, bacteria, dust or for that fact, some makeup. Moreover, the harshness of chemical components endowed within the cleanser may affect the pH level of your skin. So in order to revers…

Cute Box March 2018 Edition - Women’s Era | Unboxing & Review

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
Is anyone out here, bitten by the bug which is commonly known as the hoarding disorder? Did I just hear a ‘yes’? Well, you’re not alone in this because you’ve got my back, girl. Be it lipsticks, makeup products, skincare, cute packaging, empty bottles or containers, nail paints, stationery and what not; I love storing them all. My mind would weave a scenario wherein I’d really need these. There are times when I would assume that a particular container will be using for some DIY project. But that hardly happens. Currently, I’m thinking about making a terrarium. They are hell expensive on websites and I ain’t going to spend that much on mere plants. If I do manage to create one, I’d probably also make a blog post dedicated exclusively on that. Today we shall be unboxing an affordable jewellery subscription box which has been available in India since few months.
So as I was saying, jewellery is bae! Be it rings, bracelets or earrings; you will…
