Well this eyeliner is the one I can compare to gel eyeliners; it is that good. Read on to know more.

My experience with L’Oreal HiP Studio Secrets Professional Color Chrome Eyeliner – Black Shock
L’oreal paris hip studio secrets eyeliner comes in a black body and transparent cap. The cap tightly fits and will not get off while it stays in your bag. So you can carry it around anywhere.The pigmentation is very very impressive. It comes out to be jet black with fine silver particles which are really less and are not at all over the top. I like such blacks. Like the previous one from Maybelline was not such a black, I like this one more on the pigmentation part.
Second best thing about this one is that it stays like forever. This is the reason I compared it to gel eyeliners which are richly pigmented and stay ultra long. Also, it does not smudge or feather in any case, just give it a few seconds to set and then it will not budge at all. Also it is waterproof. Even if you put water and try to rub it, it will not go. On the upper lash line, it stays put till the time you want and you need a good makeup remover to get rid of this one. I tried on the lower lash line and waterline too. I do not think it fared well there. Like I would not say it stung like other pencils but it did cause watering in my eyes for long. So I do not apply it on the lower lash line/ waterline any more. I love it for the upper lash line. It is best for the times when you want a quick application as gel liners do need time.
Now comes the not so good part. The tip of the pencil is soft to glide on the eyes, like ultra soft – if you put any pressure it will break off. There is absolutely no question of tugging or pulling but then it breaks off very soon. The tip broke off on my very first trial application. When I used a sharpener, again there was a lot of product wastage because it is ultra soft. Due to this the inside of the cap surface also becomes messy. The only solution is keeping it in the fridge. That way it works better.
Overall, it is perfect pigmentation wise and staying power is highly impressive too. Tip breakage and product wastage on the other hand is a big turn off which takes its already hiked price one step further.

• Safe to carry along
• Superb pigmentation
• Smudge proof

Cons of L’Oreal HiP Studio Secrets Professional Color Chrome Eyeliner – Black Shock:

Recommendation: yes, I totally recommend this. The pigmentation and staying power is superb if you do not mind the price.
Repurchase: depends on my mood. 😛
