Lakme Forever Silk Eyeliner, Gypsy Green: Review

I absolutely love coloured eye liners! If I had it my way, I would go out and buy every single shade possible :D They add a pop of color without doing much. My Lakme Forever Silk Eyeliner in Gypsy Green just got over today and I remembered I hadn't shared the swatches with you guys yet..so here goes :)

Among colored eyeliners, navy blue, oilve and jeweled greens and dark purples remain my absolute favourites. This liner was a gift from Smriti (that is what sisters are for) and she knows me well.

The liner comes in a one way twist up pencil. I hate the fact that it doesn't retract, so be careful while twisting them up and only twist up a tiny amount. The cap has a coloured band to identify the shade. 

Coming to the texture, the liners are quite creamy and it glides on smoothly wihtout any tugging. Pigmentation is decent, and I get the true colour is 2 swipes. The liner sets in around a minute to a velvety finish and does not budge for around 6-7 hours after that. You need a good makeup remover to take the liner off completely. I generally use it on my lower lash line, and it has not irritated my eyes till date.

Gypsy Green is a beautiful metallic khakhi green shade. The color will suit Indian skin tones well. It has some fine green and golden shimmer particles, which are not at all gritty and do not spread around the eye area on application.
(We had reviewed another olive green liner shade from Maybelline earlier. You can check it out here).
