Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate Kajal Royal Purple Review, Swatches: Hi Friends, The year is about to end in a month. I feel this year flew off in the wink of an eye. Well, this brings me to yet another review of an eyeliner pencil that I recently purchased for the wedding season. I wanted to pick my Kajal pencil but the SA convinced me to try the colors, though I was sure that I would not use it on my waterline other than the black, the colors were so beautiful that I picked them up to use as eyeliners.
The colors are pretty and super easy to use. The lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate comes in six beautiful shades- Black, Silver Slate, Ash Brown, Royal Purple, Bronze rust and Prussian blue.
Today I will be sharing my reviews on Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate Royal Purple.

In Detail Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate Kajal Royal Purple Review, Swatches and My Experience
Like a small child who hoards color pencils, crayons and sketch pens you will find me hoarding eyeliners in different colors. Once a lipstick lover, I almost have the colors that look the best on me and now I am in the process of checking out and picking eyeliners as they always fascinate me.
Over time, I am kind of excelling in the art of drawing a proper line with liquid and now eye pencils. The smudger and q- tips have been my friends here for that perfect neat finish.
My love for purple eyeliners started with colorbar’s Prunella, which was discontinued after some years. I have not been able to find a color close to it somehow. Well I would love to hear from your all beauties if you found any color nearing that.
Well, I have collected a variety of purples in eye pencils, liquid eyeliners, gel eyeliner styles there on. Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate Royal Purple is more violet colored than purple as purple to my understanding has a wine colored under tone.
The pencil is a wooden type one with caps on both sides. The side, which has the eyeliner, is covered with an opaque purple colored cap while the smudger has a transparent cap. The smudger is made of soft rubber material and has a slant cut, which does the smudging action perfectly. The pencil itself is purple colored making it easier to pick from a stack of liners.
The pencil is easy to sharp using any normal eyeliner sharpeners. The Lakme absolute kohl ultimate is more matte than creamy. Though it is easier to apply the Colorbar iglide ones were easiest due to their creamy texture.
The Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate Royal Purple can be used both as eyeliner and on the waterline and there is no itchiness or uneasiness experienced when applied on the waterline. It appears soft black from far and only person who is sitting right in front would be able to make out the true color applied on the waterline.
It is suitable for days when you want a very soft color on our waterline to wade off the emptiness in the eyes. The pencil works excellent as eyeliner and stays intact until removed.
Once applied it does not spread at all even when the eyelids are oily. The color shows up beautifully and I generally apply a very thin of black liquid eyeliner for a defined look.
The eyeliner stays put until removed with any make up remover. IT is waterproof as stated on the pencil and smudge proof and super long staying as is stated on its body.
It is easily available and would suit most complexions. I would definitely pick this pencil again in future and deeply wish that lakme brings in the wine colored purple version of kohl ultimate pencil soon. I
t has two years of shelf life and I am sure I am going to finish it off much more earlier than that because of my frequent usage.
