Lakme Absolute Shine Line, Brown Shimmer Review, EOTD

Hello ladies!

Today I will be reviewing the Lakme Absolute Shine Line Eyeliner in the shade Brown Shimmer. I personally am really fond of eyeliners, especially the colored ones. They just add an extra bling to the eyes and look super gorgeous.

Now I bought this one quite a while ago and I believe it has now been revamped by Lakme as a part of their Illuminate Collection that goes by the name Shimmer Bronze.

For the detailed review, please keep on reading. Let’s start!

What The Brand ClaimsGet rich intense color in one stroke that stays true for hours. Create smoldering eyes with bold shades that redefine the look of this liquid eyeliner.

Packaging: The eyeliner comes in a beautiful sleek tube form with a metallic silver cap. The shade name is mentioned at the bottom of the tube and the wand is long and easy-to-use. It ensures precision and you can easily draw both thick as well as thin lines using it. Overall, the packaging is attractive as well as sturdy.

Color: Brown Shimmer is a brownish-bronze shade that contains fine shimmer. However, the shimmer are not at all OTT or gritty. The color is simply stunning and would suit fair to medium skin tones the best.

My Experience With The Product: Lakme Absolute Shine Line in the shade Brown Shimmer has a liquid consistency and easily spreads on the lids without any tugging. It feels comfortable on the eyes and is well pigmented. Just 2 swipes are sufficient for a rich color payoff. It dries down quickly and once set, does not budge.

It lasts for a good 5-6 hours, which I feel is pretty good. However, rubbing the eyes causes it to flake. Unfortunately, it is not waterproof; which is quite disappointing. As a result, it is easy to remove and comes off with any cleanser or makeup remover.
