After using the Eyeconic 24 hour black kajal lately, I wanted to give a try to the other Royal Blue Kajal from Eyeconic again. But this one wasn’t the 22 hour one. It was the 10 hour one. How did it turn out for me? Read on…

The product says:

Make an Eyeconic statement with the all new Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal and experience the power of beautiful eyes. A smudge-proof as well as waterproof kajal for everyday use, the new Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal promises to last up to 10 hours. Say goodbye to touch-ups and a big hello to long lasting finesse to your eyes, all through the day!

What I think of it:

It comes in a neat sea green packaging just like the other Eyeconics before. Has the similar features of a retractable pencil and the same color on the outside. So you cannot really make out a difference until you read the little label below that reads Royal Blue.  
The kohl pencil within is very smooth in texture  and has a nice blue color to it. I have used the Maybelline Colossal Turquoise before but not any blues. So I cannot compare it with any other blues out there but this sounds just fine.
The new Eyeconic Kajal claims to have a staying power of 10 hours and it lasts as long very well. It definitely has a better staying power if I compare it to the Maybelline Colossal Turquoise. This one again only stays as long only on your lash lines and not the water lines. It however is not as difficult to remove as is the 22 hour Eyeconic and consequently doesn’t give you any pains at removing it.
The only down I found with it was that I found it a bit brittle and that hurt me bad. You can’t just watch your kohl break like that.

So, the pros and cons stand as:

Pros: Long Lasting, Dark, Easy to apply, Inexpensive
Cons: Doesn’t stay long on the water line; A bit brittle

I would definitely recommend this one, ignoring its flaws and falling for its colour.
