Lakme Glide On Eye Color-Metallic Black Review:-

Hello All,

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.

Packaging:- It comes in a sharpenable pencil form with a transparent plastic cap. The outlook is complete black with a golden band at the end of the pencil. The pencil is longer than the usual Faces Long Wear Eyeliner pencils.


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.

Cons of Lakme Glide On Eye Color-Metallic Black Review:-

  1. It is not the blackest black but grayish black shade.
  2. Product gets wasted while sharpening and I personally prefer retractable pencils than these.
  3. Price is on the higher side and there are other options available(e.g. faces pencils) in lower price.

Rating:- 3.8/5

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.
