Almost everyone uses eyeliners, even people who don’t wear much eye makeup on a regular basis definitely use eyeliners to give eyes more depth and definition. And many a times, it is difficult to get a perfect eyeliner. Some of them are extremely good while others don’t stay in place for more than a couple of hours and smudge or fade easily. Also, they don’t give an even application. Today, I have an eyeliner for you – L’Oreal Paris Infallible Lacquer Liner 24Hr – Blackest Black. Let us see in which category does this one fall.

My Experience with L’Oreal Infallible Gel Lacquer Liner 24 Hour Blackest Black:
L’Oreal Paris Infallible Lacquer Liner 24Hr come in 5 shades. I wanted a black liner and I had made a resolution that I would pick up black only and not any other shade as last time when I went to buy black eyeliner I picked up Maybelline Gel liner in the shade Charcoal 😛 Though the other shades were tempting me to break my resolution 😛 but finally I picked up black-blackest black. 😀
Packaging: L’Oreal Infallible Lacquer Liner comes in a thick glass pot with a gold plastic cap. The pot is really tiny like all other gel liners, but looks classy. It comes along with a brush which is similar to the ones which come with Maybelline gel liners but a little bit stiff. The brush also has a cap on it which is great in case you want to carry the liner along with you. The brush seems a bit scratchy and pokey to use at first but after using and washing it a couple of times now, the scratchiness is gone. The brush picks up enough product, but I find it difficult to make thin lines with it, but it makes thick lines and winged liner with ease.
Texture and Pigmentation: I should say I am in love with this liner. The formula is very smooth and creamy and it glides on like a dream. No tugging or pulling along the lash line. And the pigmentation is just awesome. It gives excellent pigmentation in just a single swipe, you don’t have to build the color by layering the liner.
The only thing I don’t like about this liner is that it takes a bit to dry but the good thing about this is that it gives you plenty of time to work with it and any mistakes can be corrected easily. The liner does feel a little stiff if you layer it on and also, more layering means more time to dry. You have to be careful if you layer it up, else it transfers to upper eyelids.
The finish is semi matte, semi glossy kinds, I mean it is not too matte as other gel liners are and neither too glossy. I like it. 🙂
Staying Power: Once it’s set, it won’t budge and stays all day. I have oily lids and it stayed on my lash line for 12 hours without fading or smudging (that is the max I tested it so far), and that too without a primer. 😀 However, I rubbed my eyes accidentally and the wing did smudge a little bit but that’s it! Also, no such issues if used with a primer beneath. But it did smudge when I used it on my lower lash line.
I splashed my face with water while the liner was on and it did not fade nor smudge, so it is definitely waterproof. The liner did not irritate my skin or eyes and comes off easily with an eye make up remover.
