Lakme Glide On Eye Color - Swatches
Some swatches of the Lakme Glide On Eye Colors. These are amongst my favorite eyeliners & I first tried these when I had got them as a part of the wedding makeup kit. You can read my review of these here.
I particularly like Glimmering Plum, Henna Gold & Baked Bronze, but I am not sure if these are still being sold. I thought I’d put up the swatches anyway, since some smaller towns might still be stocking them.
From L to R: Baked Bronze, Silver, Henna Gold, Bridal Pink, Metallic Black & Glimmering Plum
In Sunlight - From L to R: Baked Bronze, Silver, Henna Gold, Bridal Pink, Metallic Black & Glimmering Plum
In Shade: From L to R: Baked Bronze, Silver, Henna Gold, Bridal Pink, Metallic Black & Glimmering Plum
Silver: This is plain icy-silver. This is very nice for the corners of the eyes & I also like using this for the lower lash line especially when doing a very modern funky look.
Heena Gold: This is the most complex color of the lot - a deep olive green shade with a lot of very fine golden shimmer. I love this one - upper lash line or lower lash line - it rocks everywhere.
Bridal Pink: This is a bright pink. I have really no clue why I got this, it just makes me look like I have conjunctivitis. I think it will look nice on someone dusky.
Metallic Black: A charcoal, grey light black with a bit of shimmer.
Glimmering Plum: A burgundy colored eyeliner with an undertone of purple to it. It is quite unlike any other purple eyeliner I have seen till date. I think this is perfect for those with green / hazel eyes. The combination of plum with purple really makes green eyes look exotic. I love pairing this with Henna gold/Metallic Black - Glimmering plum on upper lash line, Henna Gold/ Glimmering Plum on lower lash line.
haha..I just posted my review on these and then come here and see swatches!!!! LOLReplyDelete
I didnt know they had silver in this range..I am loving Heena Gold..is that pink one really good? I found that shade a bit weird...also how similar or different is glimmering plum n colorbar prunella ?
i have henna gold, bridal pink and 2-3 more shades from the range that came out last. love the quality of these liners. bridal pink especially looks very unique.ReplyDelete
i looooved henna gold...and this bridal pink is beautiful too...generally pink eyeliners are not that pigmented but this one looks cool..ReplyDelete
plum is pretty...i hav henna gold..it does come out on swatch bt hardly shows up on eyes..ReplyDelete
@HDL LOL!! Gr8 minds think alike :PReplyDelete
Yup, they have/had silver. Bridal pink looks nice - but it looks really weird on my eyes - like I have been crying :P
Glimmering Plum is a burgundy colored liner with an undertone of purple; Prunella is purple - no burgundy here.
@Rima: Yup, these are very good quality liners.
@Anamika: Even I love Henna Gold! Bridal Pink is pigmented - but I can't carry it off :P
@Bhumika: Ohhh! Aww, too bad yaa, Henna Gold works perfectly for me & shows up well on my eyes - just like the swatch.
I guess I'll give bridal pink a miss...Will check out glimmering plum next :)ReplyDelete
even i have most of the colors mentioned here.its a good buy :)ReplyDelete
hey tanz .... first of all .. belated happy b'day dear :) i had to rush to home town urgently so missed it ... love u dear and respect u for all your honest reviews :) may god bless you and all your wishes comes true :) Wishing loadsssss of good luck and health for you and your family ....ReplyDelete
now for the swatches :D .... i love and i have bronze but now i think i have to look around for heena gold :) its looking lovely
wow! there are so many shades...when i was in chennai they only had three :(ReplyDelete
Which is better Lakme Eye Glide or Colorbar???ReplyDelete
The bronze and esp the henna gold looks really nice!!!ReplyDelete
I love these too. I have henna gold, baked bronze & smokey green. Unfortunately, like Bhumika, the henna gold colour doesn't show on me. And you're right, 3 colours - the pink, glimmering plum & another one - have been discontinued. I really wanted the plum one after reading your views on it :( BTW, how is the metallic black? Worth a buy?ReplyDelete
@HD: Yup, Bridal Pink is little weird. I think Glimmering Plum has been discontinued (thank god, i have a back-up)ReplyDelete
@IMW: Even I love these liners :)
@Rashmi: Thks a lot, your wishes mean a lot to me, thank you for being so kind & generous :D.. I hope u like these liners
@Abi: They have discontinued some, so maybe that is why
@Aarthi: Honestly, I prefer these to colorbar - coz they are bit creamier - but that is pretty much the only difference between the two. You could go for either..
@Simran: Yea, they are very pretty shades
@Poohkie: Aww, try using henna gold smudged under the waterliner (on the lower lash line) might show up there.. I quite like glimmering plum, god knows why they discontinued it.. Metallic black is not really black, it is more like dark grey with a touch of shimmer - works for me as I can't wear black eyeliners (I look like a goth), this is the darkest I can go in black. Go for it if you need a nice shimmery dark grey liner.
