Lakme Absolute Gel Addict Liner : Metallic Bronze – Swatch, Review


Hey everyone!

Among the few new launches I picked up in India last month to review, I was quite curious to try out the Lakme Absolute Gel Addict Eye liners. Its the first time an Indian brand has done gel liners and I picked up the shade Metallic Bronze.

Lakme Absolute Gel Addict Liner Metallic Bronze Review

The liner is quite pigmented, dries quickly, is quite long lasting and doesn’t smudge or fade away.The color is a tarnished, muted bronze that doesn’t have the depth and richness I was hoping for. I don’t use this much on the upper lash line as its not dark enough for definition but it seems to work quite well along the lower lash line and smudged all over the lid. The packaging comes with a small brush which could come in handy.

I’ll be using this in a look/tutorial soon so you can how it looks worn on the eyes. Formula-wise, I’m quite happy with it. Wish it was priced better though! The color range is quite interesting – Black, Deep Sea (cobalt), Tempting Teal (teal), Vine Yard (purple with shimmer), Grey Ash (dark grey), White Delight (matte white).

    This was an absolute favorite when I checked them out at the store! Waiting to see how you use it 🙂

    Nice product but the shade is not so exciting for me.

  8. December 22, 2014 / 12:09 pm

    the shade seems to be nice to be used as a base <3 don't know if it will show up very well on me though 🙁

    I have this in grey ash ! want to try more shades now 🙂

  13. December 22, 2014 / 3:39 pm

    Was not sure if I need Lakme Absolute gel addict eye liners in my life. After reading the review, I feel the need to buy one.

  14. December 22, 2014 / 5:09 pm

    The colour is beautiful but I always feel Lakme products are a bit overpriced…

  15. December 22, 2014 / 5:30 pm

    Though I loved the color I skipped it since I heard that these do not show up on upper lash line. Great that it works over the lids. waiting or the tutorial. I so want this shade 🙂

  16. December 22, 2014 / 5:39 pm

    Loved its pigmentation, would be a great shade for parties and pigmentation. You should have shown the application part as well. 🙂

    Thanks for the review. Will definitely try lakme absolute gel addict eyeliners.

  18. December 22, 2014 / 8:52 pm

    The shade looks good.. But I doubt whether it will show up on my skin tone!

    Hii ankita I just want to know which mac blush should I pick which would wo go with each and ecery outfit and i have fair to medium complexion… Please i really need your help as there were like 100 blushes.. And I just want to have one awsum blush that would go with each and every outfit.. So please recommend me..

      Hi, I think a shade like Melba works with everything. Its a dusty peach color with a matte finish, works with everything. Pinch me is another option. If you want something with a little shimmer for a glowy look, you should check out the Mineralize blushes. Warm Soul is a good option.

    Hi !
    I dunno why u rated them so much may b the different colors have different texture… I bought deep sea shade in it n was highly disappointed…bad pigmentation! High price! Small quantity ! Only d packaging is flattering…moreover it didn't stayd for long and it was a difficult task to form an even line on both lids
    I m very dissapointed by lakme gel addict!
    I hope ur doing good and enjoying ur trip 😊

    And what about mac dollymix or fleur or frankly scarlett.. Sorry for bothering you so much but I am really exicited to get my first mac blush..

    • December 23, 2014 / 4:22 am

      Frankly Scarlet is red so its not easy to pull off with everything. Might need very careful application also. Dollymix and Fleur Power are nice
      (and both pinks) but if you want just 1 blush to go with everything, something softer and more neutral is better than a bright pink.

    Can you tell some smudge proof kohl for sensitive eyes? They get watery very often.

    • December 23, 2014 / 4:23 am

      Lakme Absolute Ultimate Kohl and Colorbar Just Smoky Kajal are both smudge proof.

    I was waiting fr this one…not very fond of this bronze after reading ur review..would love a much pigmented color from this range.. can u suggest some other teal or purple? R they good enuf? Have u tried them?

    • January 13, 2015 / 12:44 pm

      Hi Maithili, this is the only shade I've tried from this range. Swatched the purple one in the store and did not like it – was too sheer and weak.
