Lakme Glide On Eye Color-Metallic Black Review:-
I am a big fan of eyeliners and they are probably the first makeup product that I have started using. I started with liquid liners and my first eyeliner was Lakme Insta-liner in Black.
I was bored of the regular matte liners and wanted to give them a break. I was looking for some colored liner when this pencil caught my attention “Lakme Glide On Eye Color-Metallic Black” which is a shimmery(metallic) black liner and couldn’t resist myself from giving this a try.

My experience with Lakme Glide On Eye Color-Metallic Black:-
The liner is creamy and glides on smoothly on eyelids without any tugging. I was a little disappointed with its pigmentation. The liner is not jet black in color but more of a grayish black. The liner might not appear well on dark-pigmented eyes in a single swipe but color can be builded up.
The color sets within seconds and once set the liner doesn’t smudge or smears. Normally creamy liners get transferred to the upper- lid but I haven’t faced any such issue with this liner. The liner stayed intact for good 7-8 hours without fading.
I have also used this liner on the lower-lash line and it stayed good there with a little smearing due to its creamy texture but didn’t gave me raccoon eyes.

- Price is on the higher side and there are other options available(e.g. faces pencils) in lower price.
Recommendation:-If you are bored out of your regular matte eyeliner then Lakme Glide On Eye Color-Metallic Black eyeliner can be given a try but if you are looking for dark black liner then this can be given a miss. In Shimmer (metallic) finish, I liked Lakme Fantasy liner in Midnight moon a lott.
