Does Elle 18 Eye Drama Kajal Outlives All That It Claims? (Review + Swatch)

#affordable #matte #opaque #longlasting #smudgeproof #waterproof

Sounds pleasing? Yes, to me as well! πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

When it comes to our eyeliner/kajal, we don’t wanna invest our time upon touch ups! One stroke and we wanna rock the world.. πŸ˜‰ Upon each morning, when you’d wake up half asleep, rushing to get out of the door so as to be on time for college or office; you’d hardly pick up those gel liners and wing out those eyes. Bleh, not my thing! πŸ˜’Firstly I am lazy & secondly one more hassle in the morning and I ain't up for that. This is why; I resort to pencil liners for an everyday basis. After a long time, I again fell in love with an eyeliner-kajal 😍😍 Last crush I presume was the Faces Magnetic eyes and now this one from Elle 18. Stay tuned for detailed review. Also, if you’re following me on Instagram you’d know in advance what review shall be up before hand! Let's Begin. πŸ˜„  


Description: Get the dramatic look with a smooth intense glide. Lasts all day without smudge. Suitable for contact lenses users. Opthalmologically tested, versatile in application.

Claims: Lasts all day long; Smudge proof & Waterproof

Price: Rs. 135 for 0.35 grams


Shade: Bold Black

Packaging: The Elle 18 Eye Drama kajal comes in black cardboard with all its information imprinted in white. What caught my eye was the fact that it had no ingredients list! I don’t usually go for kajals which is why I’m clueless if other brands also don’t mention it. We reviewers are pretty suspicious lot, something unmentioned; we equate it to something being hidden. I’d look at their website, if it has some information on this matter.

My Experience:
The reason why I don’t opt for kajal/eyeliners is due to the absence of a sharpener within it. You can never get a precise tip to work with. Not that all brands offer no sharpener;if I’m not wrong Blue Heaven comes with one, for their retracable kajal. Anyways, let me stop cribbing and move forth with the review.

The formulation; OMG is so buttery smooth, it literally glides on and the colour intensity is truly jet black. Thankfully, even when the kajal is creamy, it sets quickly into more than semi matte with subtle shine. It does not leave you with raccoon eyes. Onto the smudge test, it stayed unmoved. When I tried to smudge the swatch, it did not budge from its place at all! The colour intensity faded comparatively although. A lot of the times, the traces of this kajal remain behind after I wash my face with facial cleanser. Longevity of this kajal onto the eyelids is more than 8 hours; depending on how oily your eyelids are. Post that, I don’t say it fades or gets off; only until you smudge it after a good long day, it would remain intact. So, it has clearly outlived all the claims that the brand mentions about.

πŸ’‘Tip of the day- Use some compact onto your eyelids before you apply your eyeliner; it’s gonna enhance the longevity for those with oily eyelids

Swatch-

Rating: 5.0 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


Repurchase?
YES, definitely! But for the usage as eyeliner pencil only, as I’m not at all a kajal person.

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…

Jeju Volcanic Lava Self-Heating Clay Mask - Review

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨

Apparently, there are lots on skincare brands which are available internationally and I’m yet to try them out. Some of these brands, enclosed within my wish list include The Body Shop, The Faces Shop, Clinique, etc. Thankfully, Nykaa was running an offer on The Faces Shop skincare range wherein you could grab a full-sized freebie product. While I was surfing the catalogue, I encountered the “self-heating” mask which kept me intrigued enough to add it to my cart. I kid you not, there have been times when I’ve legit done window shopping online as well! πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜„ I see trillion of things and later I’m like – “Do I really need this?”
And the mind always answers – “Of course not, girl!” πŸ˜‚
A lot of the times, I force myself to hear the sensible talk of my mind. But sometimes, the heart takes over and it springs in joy to say “Woah! That’s too pristine to be denied”. This is exactly how I ended up purchasing Jeju Volcanic Lava Self-Heating Clay Mask
So…
