Our Experience Of Using Lakme Eyeconic Kajal

One of the most popular products, the community at Fabbon has used it extensively to create versatile looks.

The packaging is definitely attractive but alongwith it this product meets all the expectations as claimed.

The kajal pencil is retractable and has a twisting mechanism which makes this product easy to use, unlike other brands. This feature ensures 100% utilization and minimum wastage.

However, there is a minor disadvantage of this feature as well. If you want to draw a thin stroke, it becomes difficult because the pencil comes out thicker every time. One has to draw small strokes to pull off a neat and clear line.




Lakme kajal pencil has smooth, soft and creamy texture because of which it feels really good while applying it. The pigmentation of this kajal is high which makes the eyes look very beautiful.

The kajal lasts long but definitely not for 22 hours. We found the time to be around 10-12 hours which is very good as well.

This does not smudge and is waterproof. This kohl stays intact, does not spread out and gives your eyes a complete look.

It is not allergic and does not create any irritation to the eyes.

Moreover, this has the potential to dramatically transform your look. One can go for a bold, a party look or a daily office wear look.

The eyelids and lashes are given a great look and it looks really good. I have seen my friend transforming instantly after the application!

If you are looking for a budget friendly, long lasting and easy to use eyeliner, then lakme eyeconic kajal is the one of the best choices.


  • Smudge free, waterproof and dermatologically tested
  • Does not cause any allergies or irritation to the eyes.
  • Long lasting (lasts for 10-12 hours)
  • High pigmentation
  • Convenient twist-up format and easy to use
  • Smooth, soft and creamy texture and absence of suspended particles
  • Affordable with nice packaging
  • Minimal wastage because of retractable mechanism
  • No product is wasted because of its retractable mechanism


  • Kajal removal takes more time comparatively
  • If you want to draw a very thin stroke, you have to draw small strokes to pull off a neat and clear line. It becomes difficult because the pencil comes out thicker every time.
  • Though it claims to be “Deep Black”, it is not the darkest kajals. In terms of the degree of darkness, there are better alternatives.

Lakme eyeconic kajal price for the deep black shade varies from Rs 135 to Rs 170.

Final Recommendation

Lakme eyeconic kajal is definitely worth the money.

The features like high pigmentation, ease of usage, smudge free, water proof and long lasting nature make this kajal more unique.

But this is not the Kajal that can be removed quickly. It is not recommended under quick removal products.

Top three reasons to buy this product are:

1. It gives the best quality at an affordable price

2. It is smudge free, waterproof and lasts for 10-12 hours.

3. This kajal is easy to use and has no side effects like irritation and allergies to the eyes

The features and pros of this product far outweigh the cons, so its a definite must buy from our side.

Do note along with the best kajal, Lakme also makes the best mascara in india.
