L'Oreal Superliner

Posted by Buls on 9:41 PM in , ,
I am slow in writing the reviews even though I have a huge collection of make up. I don't want to just randomly review products. Whichever product I write about is the one I have used in that and feel strongly about. Also, I have a clear judgement about it. After reading it, the person should know whether it is a good product or not.

I was quite happy when L'Oreal launched a superliner which is a felt tip pen like eyeliner. Lakme had launched one earlier. I thought the Lakme one was decent but it dried quite soon. I did not get enough use of it.

I read the review on one of the blogs before buying it. It was reviewed positively. Later, I realized that the PR probably sent this product to the blogger and so the review maybe biased.

The felt tip liner is a black pen with a long tip and a golden cap. It looks good. The long tip helps in creating a thin or thick line. It is part of the L'Oreal L'Or Electric Collection launched during Cannes. MRP is Rs 695.

There are 2 big problems with this liner:

1) It is quite sheer. I expected it to be very dark but it goes on sheer. I wait for it to dry (a few seconds) and then have to apply a 2nd coat... and a 3rd... and a 4th... and sometimes a 5th for the dark look of liner. I hate sheer liners

2) It is not waterproof. This has not been a major issue. It does stay on for 6 hours after which it may start fading off.

Below are swatches to show how sheer it is:

Left to right: 1 coat, 2 coats and 4-5 coats

My suggestion- Spend your money elsewhere.
