Amway Attitude Eye Liner Review


Here is another eye liner which i am going to write about today. It is the Amway Attitude Eye Liner in black. It comes in a small black bottle with silver cap. The weight is 2.8 ml and it costs INR Rs 599.

What Amway claims about the Amway Attitude Eye Liner ? : Beautify your eyes with Attitude eye linerAttitude smudge-free long wear eyeliner dries quickly. Its superior skin compatibility gives lush black look to your delicate eyes. Now use this instant settling eye liner and let your eyes do the talking.

The pigmentation of Amway Attitude Eye Liner is just amazing, one stroke and you get a nice bold line. You may reapply as per your choice. The felt tip eyeliner applicator makes it damn easy to apply the eyeliner. Once you apply, initially you will get a cool feeling, which eventually goes away and leaves on the matte black eyeliner intact. However this is not totally smudge-proof so you just cant rub it with your hands vigorously and expect it to stay intact. This is water-resistant eye liner but not water-proof as i have tested it, and nothing has been claimed by Amway too regarding this.

The only issue is that this eye liner is quite expensive, being a liquid eye liner. I mean its not even a waterproof eyeliner, so the price is kind of high compared to other liquid eye liners available in the market. However, the color payoff is great as i get a bold black matte stroke everytime i use this, and it stays for at least 4 hours without fading unless i rub a tissue over it and then it will smudge. Otherwise i like this Amway Attitude Eye Liner.

Lakme Black Impact Eye Liner REVIEW


The Lakme Black Impact Eye Liner has been with me for more than 1 year and recently i started using it, and i know its going to expire soon so i thought of reviewing it. So this costs INR Rs 225 and comes in a pack of 3.5 ml. This Lakme eyeliner is in the market for a long time and is never going to go out of fashion it seems.

What Lakme claims about the Lakme Black Impact Eye Liner ? : Lakme 9 to 5 Impact Black Eye liner is there to stay! This rich, intense black liner, makes your look last longer with its silky, water resistant & fast drying formula. Give your eye makeup a bold and lasting impression with its rich and defined hues. The liner is easy and smooth to apply and the brush handle offers a comfortable grip so you can create the looks you want, without uneven lines! The Lakme 9 to 5 Black Impact Liner is a glam staple you should have!
  • Rich intense color in a silk forumla.
  • Water resistant - fast drying.
  • Long handle for easy grip.

Ingredients : Aqua, lpm, Disodium Edta

So this eye liner is one of the most affordable liquid eye liners right now in the market, with a good quality, because the brand Lakme is something which is trustworthy and reliable since its in the market for a long time. Lakme Black Impact Eye Liner comes in a brown bottle plastic made with a golden cap. It got a long handle as has been mentioned, but the tip is not thick and sturdy, and therefore bends away very quickly. Very difficult for someone with shaky hands to apply this liner. I usually draw the line first with an eye pencil and then go over the same line with this liner. That makes the application easy, or else the applicator is good for nothing. You would need a proper felt tip eyeliner applicator to make the application smoother.

Usually one stroke is not sufficient, so i reapply. So the pigmentation is not superb, but what more can you expect for eye makeup under 500 these days? The liner stays on for 4-5 hours easily, and might get faded away with time. Its water resistant as has been mentioned, but not totally water proof. Lakme Black Impact Eye Liner is travel-friendly, you can carry it in your purse, nothing to worry about spillage.

Overall, Lakme Black Impact Eye Liner is a good eye liner, considering its price. It is definitely not the best eyeliner in India, but then the price and availability makes it really likable.

O3+ Agelock Booster Serum Vitamin-C Review


Recently i got the O3+ Agelock Booster Serum Vitamin-C while i was checking for some new skin whitening products. So this one comes in a pack of 30 ml and costs INR Rs 1350. The outer cover is orange in color and the bottle is plastic made, orange in color with a white dropper on top. It has got no smell of its own.

Ingredients : Aqua, Sodium Ascorbyl Phospate, Orange Peel Extract, Lactic Acid, Sodium PCA, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract.

What O3+  claims about the O3+ Agelock Booster Serum Vitamin-C ? : O3+ Agelock Vitamin C serum helps in brightening and whitening the skin while unifying the skin tone and enhancing the glow.

How to use : Apply tiny dots of serum on the face and once it penetrates in the skin, blend it lightly and quickly all over.

I have been using the O3+ Agelock Booster Serum Vitamin-C for a week now regularly once a day. The complexion instantly gets brighter and slightly even once i apply this. The consistency is gel like and absorbs super fast, and might initially be a bit sticky on the skin but gradually that goes away too. The product/serum is colorless. The dropper somehow never works, so taking out the product from the bottle is a bit difficult every time. Since the product absorbs with great speed one needs to be fast while applying this. When applied a bit in excess, one might get a bit of pungent smell, but that goes away with time.

Since the winter is near, this works as a moisturizer for me as i have super oily skin, and yet sometimes around the lips i can sense some dryness. If i put on this, it acts as a nice shield. I have not noticed any break outs yet from the O3+ Agelock Booster Serum Vitamin-C so one can give it a try. However if you got dry skin, you need to put a light moisturizer alongwith this to get some smoothness. So overall, i find the claims of the company to be not totally false. It certainly gives some glow and brightens the face, but then once you wash off, the glow goes amiss. So i would say you get a bit of instant glow with this, not something permanent or long term. I however do not think this serum will brighten the skin tone totally, it might add some instant skin brightness though.

Lóreal Paris Kajal Magique REVIEW


I have been using the Lóreal Paris Kajal Magique Eye Pencil for quite sometime now. It costs INR Rs 245. It is a retractable pencil eyeliner in black shade. The body is plastic made and black in color with a hint of pink on the lower end of the cap and the name written in pink on the body of the pencil. Overall it got a very appealing look.

What L'oreal claims about the Lóreal Paris Kajal Magique ? :
Supreme Black
A new generation formula! Powdered with mineral pigments for deep intense colour.
Extraordinary Care
Kajal Magique is formulated with care ingredients and gives a soothing feeling. Enriched with Vitamin E, Cocoa Butter, Olive Oil Esters and Vitamin C derivative.
Magical Result - Eyeliner & Kajal!
To use, draw a precise stroke along your waterline. And a bold stroke on the upper lid to complete the look.

Smudge proof upto 12 H.
Non Transfer. Waterproof.
Opthalmologically tested. Suitable for contact lens wearers.

How to use ? : Can be used as a Kajal on the lower lash line. Can be used as liner on the upper eye lid. Can smudge a little to give smokey effect.

Now, i have tested this eye pencil and it seems the smudge proof and non transferable and waterproof claims are true. However the pencil does not stay smudge proof for 12 hours, but perhaps till 4 to 5 hours. Lóreal Paris Kajal Magique got main competitors in the market like Lakme Eyeconic Pencil and Maybelline Colossal Kajal. I simply love the Lakme Eyeconic Eye Pencil over the other two, however this post is not about it, but about this L'oreal Kajal Eye Pencil. Though the company claims that the Kajal is supreme black in color, but i find the black to be not that prominent or bold, Lakme is better in this case. You need to swipe the eye pencil at least 2 to 3 times to get the black color properly and still it is not that supremely black as it claims to be. Now, L'oreal got another new product L'oreal Kajal Magique Bold, which might help in this area.

Even though the Kajal wont go off even if you apply water on your eyes but then with just eye makeup remover this goes off easily. The pencil is soft on the skin, but then you need to swipe the pencil a number of times to get it properly on the eyelids. Also the L'oreal Kajal Magique is not that great for waterline as it goes off and becomes smudgy and hazy in just one hour or so. However on the upper eye lid, this stays intact, so if you are looking to get smokey eye look, this wont work on the upper lid.

Overall i am not very impressed with the L'oreal Kajal Magique and have found many better alternatives at similar price and even lower than this. I would not repurchase this anytime soon, but would like to try the BOLD version of this.
