Lakmé Fantasy Shimmer Eyeliner–Midnight Moon Review

Hello friends,

I had just finished my Lakmé 9 to 5 liquid black liner and was hunting for another liquid liner when I came across Fantasy collection by Lakme. I love the finish and the look that I get with liquid liners compared to the pencil liners but was bored of regular matte black liners. Lakme has something different to offer this time and I decided to go for Midnight Moon shade from the Fantasy collection.


Product Claims:- Steal the secret to those twinkling eyes with a gel based liner infused with micro-fine glitter particles. This rich sparkle liner lets you line, layer or blend without smudging or spreading

Available in 8 shades:-

  1. Glimmer Blue
  2. Mystic Mauve
  3. Moonshine Topcoat
  4. Astral Green
  5. Indigo Star
  6. Pink Crystal
  7. Bronze melt
  8. Midnight moon

Price:- Rs.275 for 3.5ml

Shelf Life:- 24 months from the Mfg date.

Packaging:- It comes wrapped in a cellophane paper (tamper-proof seal) . The liner comes in a transparent plastic bottle with a long applicator handle. The small cute bottle with a long golden handle looks so stylish. I love its packaging simple yet stylish.

The packaging is also travel friendly and unbreakable kinds as I have dropped this bottle more than few times accidently/purposefully but no damage done.


My experience with Lakmé Fantasy Eyeliner – Midnight Moon:-

  • The liquid liner is not runny which is very unlike Lakmé 9 to 5 and Lakmé Insta liner. Due to its medium gel like consistency it is extremely easy to work with this liquid liner.
  • The long applicator handle gives a better control and creating a smooth line in single stroke. It has a thin good quality brush which picks up the right amount of the liquid and applies the liner on the lids like a breeze.


  • The liner is not an intense black but more of like grayish- black liner with fine shimmers. The shimmers are a mix of silver and pink specks but not gritty at all.
  • The liner is highly pigmented and gives intense color in single application.
  • It glides so beautifully on the eyelids that winged eyeliner has never been such an easy task.

Cons Lakmé Fantasy Eye liner – Midnight Moon:-

  1. May sting sensitive eyes as it causes slight sensation in my eyes till it dries.

  3. Liner is not water-proof but water- resistant for sure.

Recommendation:- Lakmé Fantasy Eye liner – Midnight Moon is an awesome liquid eyeliner with subtle shimmers and s*xy packaging. It has super easy application and long staying power. Decent pigmentation and smudge proof. Scared of making mistakes in eyeliner application, try this. Correcting mistakes would never have been so easier.
