Lakme Instaliner Water Resistant Eyeliner Reviews
Another day, another product to be reviewed. And this particular product gets me nostalgic every time that I use it. Because this particular eyeliner has a history. When I was in college, my best friend used to make me line her eyes with this particular eyeliner and we’d have loads of laughs because she’d sit through the entire first period with her eyes closed to let the eyeliner dry. The Lakme Instaliner Water Resistant Eyeliner was probably created during the days when Lakme didn’t have any clue about the eyeliner pencils of today. But it was still a handy product that could be easily concealed in the palm of our hands when the professor made his rounds.
Product Description :
The Lakme Instaliner Water Resistant Eyeliner promises to be light weight, deep intense and water proof first off, which lasts for a considerable period, few hours at most undisturbed on your eyes.
How to Use:
Dip the brush into the liquid and make sure that it doesn’t drip. Getting too much liquid onto the brush could cause chaos as you line your eyes with it. The liquid may drip or seep into your eyes and the fluid can cause quite a sting if it finds its way into the corner of your eyes. So take appropriate caution when using the very tiny brush to line your eyes.
Rs. 110 for 9ml
The Lakme Instaliner Water Resistant Eyeliner comes in a tiny glass bottle with an equally tiny brush. The brush has a very pointed tip that is more than suitable if you are a fan of drawing very thin lines. If you want to increase the thickness, you might have to draw more than one layer and color it. The instructions as well as the details of the product are listed on the side of the bottle.
The texture of the Lakme Instaliner Water Resistant Eyeliner, as it promises, is a deep black with an intense shade that lets the shimmery sheen on the fluid stay on even after it has dried. The only annoying factor was the waiting period for the liquid to dry which could take a couple of minutes as long as you have the patience for it.

My experience with Lakme Instaliner Water Resistant Eyeliner
This is one Lakme product that was a huge disappointment. The only thing that I liked about it was the fact that once it dried, it left a very thick, dark and a glossy line in its place. Mind you, this is after it dries which takes so long that it was irritating after a point. The liquid also tended to irritate my eyes so had to donate this to someone else after a few tries. Not worth having your eyes affected. The smudges were also very hard to remove as they quickly spread over the skin and darken instantly. The brush was hard to hold on to since the handle was very small. A terrible ordeal from start to finish if you ask me.
Not a favorite of mine nor would I use it if I got the chance to in the future. There are far better and higher quality products that would suit ones needs when compared to this.
