Lakme Glide-On Eyeliner Review : Plush Purple

January 7, 2011
Lakme Glide-on eyeliner pencils have been around for some time in the market. The older shades include Bronze, Heena Gold (Love this shade..might get it soon :)), a pink shade (this one is a very weird shade!!) , black(sorry dont rememeber all names) . As part of the Lakme Night Fever Collection, Lakme launched 3 more shades in this range..Plush Purple, Warm Copper & Aqua Green.
I have the shade Plush Purple. 
 Price : Rs. 275
Plush Purple is a medium purple shade.


What I like about Lakme Glide-on eyeliner :
  • True to its name, it glides on the eyelids without tugging or hurting at all.
  • The staying power is very good. It stays through the day without fading. This without any primer or base.
  • These do not smudge once set. You do get a few secs to smudge the liner if you like immediately after applying.
  • I like pencils which can be sharpened compared to retractable ones so this fits the bill 🙂
  • Does not irritate eyes at all. Though I dont have very sensitive eyes. I am not sure if this is safe to be worn on the waterline?


What I dont like about Lakme Glide-on eyeliner :
  • It is expensive. Specially when you compare it to other similar eyepencils which come at a lesser price.
  • I prefer eyepencils which have the end of the pencil in the same color as the shade, makes it easier to spot amongst all the ones you have. This one comes in a black pencil with a transparent cover, so that is the only way to spot your pencil. Though currently I have only 1 pencil from this range but will be an issue if I add more colors.
Would love to see more colors in this range. Infact I have completely fallen in love with colored pencil eyeliners since last couple of months…except for 1 or 2 all my colored pencils are bought in the last few months and I am always on the lookout for more shades to add to my collection.
Anyone any suggestions for a particular shade or range of eye pencils?
Which shade from this range do you have? Which is your fav?

    I knw…I kinda freaked out for a sec and even refreshed the page to confirm LOL!! gr8 minds think alike 😀 😀 I like that 🙂 🙂 I hv couple of purple tops n all so it goes with those plus I love to experiment with different colored liners on lower lashline with my plain black and white tops so anything that doesnt get used more often otherwise, gets used w blakc n white :D:D

    Hey Rentu..this does not irritate or bother my eyes at all when applied on the lower lashline..infact many times when I've used this on the lower lashline some of the liner does go to the waterline too but I've never faced any problem with this liner ..

    very pretty color 🙂 … i want henna gold too , i love the texture of these very smooth and creamy 😀 😀

    yeah henna gold is v pretty now but after Bhumika mentioned it does not show up on her I am doubting it for myself too..

    I love these as well. I have henna gold, smokey green & baked bronze. As someone mentioned above, henna gold is barely visible as an eye liner on me. But these are so creamy that I even use them as eye shadow. I have sensitive eyes & can safely use these on the lower lashline.
