Lakme Absolute Gel Addict Gel Eyeliner in Metallic Bronze and Grey Ash
Durga Puja is knocking on the door and for a Bengali girl, this is the time to renew her look with her new clothes, new make up, new hair cut. The whole make over that she decides to go under is all for this special occasion.

This festive season I decided to get my glam on and sport smoky lined eyes with colors other than black. I have tried the Black from the Lakme Absolute Gel Addict Collection and loved it. So I got these Fall friendly variants in Metallic Bronze and Grey Ash for the coming cooler seasons.

Packaging ~

I love Lakme's packaging of the Gel eyeliner the best. It comes in a tiny glass tub with an elongated inverted funnel shaped black cap made out of good quality plastic. The top end of the cap houses the eyeliner brush. It's compact, handy and extremely travel friendly compared to the gel eyeliners whose brushes comes separately. You would never lose the brush for this.

I was vacationing in the North Bengal and I was carrying my Maybelline Gel eyeliner. The brush was there in my make up pouch, but somehow I lost it during in between packing and travelling. So I had nothing with me for the rest of my travel to apply my eyeliner with. Hence in most of the pictures I ended up looking tired and dull.

Texture ~

Just as the company claims, it is as smooth as butter, It glides on effortlessly without any pull or tug and dries out pretty fast and sets without any smudges, with this being so so creamy in texture. I have noticed that as compared to my Maybelline gel eyeliner, if you keep it open in the air, the top dries up and forms a crust sort of keeping the inner product still creamy. But when my Maybelline dried, it dried all through out.

Brush ~

The brush is so cute. Its a tiny little thing but long enough for you to apply eye liner well. The bristles are soft and not poky. I do clean them periodically because they harden with the left over product on the brush and then it starts to poke.

Color and Pigmentation and Swatch~

Grey Ash : The grey ash is a metallic grey which has blue under tones. I did not find it to be true grey but more of a bluish grey. The color pigmentation is good, but could have been better. Because I need quite a bit of product on the brush to get a good color with just one swipe. It sets off pretty fast and does not smudge if you have very dry eyelids ( Tested on my mother's eyes ). I have hooded Asian eye with quite a little crease, and I have never noticed it to smudge all over my eye. BUT, yes there is a but, if you have extremely oily eye lid like me, the products dissolves in it and crumbles off. But if I pat on some powder over my eyelid before application, the liner stays for about 5-6 hours. In between I do pat on a bit of powder to keep my eyelids dry.

Metallic Bronze : I wanted a gel eyeliner in brown / taupe shade so that I can use it so make smoky eyes. The shade is that of a golden brown, it's simply metallic brown. The pigmentation is the best of its kind and the color pays off almost 5-6 hours when my eyelids are dried out first with some powder. I just love this metallic shade and it is so great to create festive eye make up looks. I have been enjoying this eye liner a lot.

Of late, I have been using both of these eye liners as eye shadows. I dab some on my eye lids and with a blend it really fast to give a smoky effect. As this dries pretty fast so you have to work really fast in the blending department. I do mix in with few different eye shadows to finish off. Put on some mascara and I am done.

Overall, I am loving these metallic colors from Lakme and this Fall I am sorted if I want to glam up my eyes with a bit of drama. As I got them at discount from Nykaa.com so I am loving them forever more. But if I had to buy it in full price then it would have definitely hurt the wallet as the quantity is too less compared to the price.

Have you tried them ? Tell which which other shade from this range I should get in the comments below.
