Lakme Absolute flutter secrets volumizing mascara

Hello Ladies !! I am a full on mascara junkie and I love hoarding up on mascaras.....I always tend to experiment with different kinds of mascaras....today, I am going to be reviewing a mascara by the Absolute range of lakme.....

SO, lets get started !!!


WHAT THE PRODUCT CLAIMS

Intense volume

waterproof

smudgeproof

long lasting hold

PRICE

INR 450

MY TAKE

1. The packaging is plain black and it has a long wand with medium thickness of bristles

2. The bristles are quite coarse and small and stiff...the shape of the bristles is nothing special...its similar to the regular mascaras


3. The claims of being waterproof are true as it does not ruin my eyes when I cry...lol

4. You will see in the pictures below that it does not do anything dramatic to my eyes....so I don't think its a very good mascara...I am not a big fan of it..

5. It clumps like crazy...even after only 1 coat, I see a lot of clumping....

6. It dries really fast...which makes it difficult to work with




You can see that it does not make much difference even after 3 coats...and clumps and spreads everywhere

*For the purpose of true demonstration, I have not curled my eyes with an eyelash curler

LIKES

1. Waterproof
2. Lasts a long time
3. Affordable for a mascara

DISLIKES

1. Boring packaging
2. regular wand
3. No volumizing affect
4. Normal curling effect..nothing too special
5. Clumps and smudges
6. Ingredient list not mentioned

FINAL RATING

2.5/5

I will not buy this again and won't recommend it to anybody, however, its an ok mascara for the prize, but maybelline mascaras are cheaper and work better than this one

till the next post

  4. Hi,

    When I was reading the article , I thought of mentioning Maybelline mascara in my comment which I use. And in the end I got the same name from you i.e Maybelline. Did you try Maybelline Collosul Kajal ? I am just thinking of buying that after seeing the advertisement everyday on TV.

    Thanks for review.

  5. I would like a suggestion from you on how to apply eye make up if you wear glasses. The problem is compounding. if you don't wear them, you can't see and if you wear them, well, :) :)

    Also not a big fan of Lakme eye make. It irritates the eyes and itches.

    Awesome detailed review and good presentation. Keep up
