Eyelid Type: Oily
When it comes to choosing eyeliners, I usually prefer them in pencil form rather than liquid form. Pencil liners are easy and quick to apply than the liquid ones. Anyway, I recently spotted L’Oreal Paris had launched their Infallible Gel Crayon range. I got tempted to pick up some shades from this range. I have picked them in the shades “Golden Femme” and “Rest in Kaki”. Today’s review is on L’Oreal Paris Infallible 24H Gel Crayon “110 Golden Femme”. Keep scrolling for the product details.

My Experience with L’Oreal Paris Infallible 24H Gel Crayon 110 Golden Femme:
L’Oreal Paris 24H Infallible Gel Crayon is a beautiful range of 11 shades. The shades “Super Cooper“, “Plum Avenue“, “Turquoise Vibes“, “True Teal“, “Browny Crush” and “I’ve Got The Blue” have already been reviewed on IMBB. The shade range is awesome and fantastic for creating different eye looks.
Packaging: Starting off with the packaging, this gel crayon pencil comes in a regular, sleek black crayon pencil form and is a sharpenable pencil. No sharpener has been provided with the pencil. It has a color-coded cap which makes the shade identification easier. The cap sits securely in place. The packaging looks quite attractive. The product body bears no information about the product. Initially, the pencil comes packed in a cellophane wrapper to prevent tampering with the packaging. All the product details are written on the body of the pencil itself.
The only con in the packaging is that these pencils are not retractable; rather it needs to be sharpened regularly. The pencil can be sharpened using a normal sharpener. Sharpening means unwanted wastage of product which is disappointing. Overall, the packaging is sturdy and travel-friendly.
Shade: The shade “Golden Femme” is a beautiful metallic golden shade that has yellowish undertones in it. This shade has finely milled shimmers which make your eyes look vibrant. You can use liner as a highlighting shade on the inner corner of your eyes as well. The colour looks very gorgeous and will go with every skin tone. I have a special weakness for golden coloured eyeliners, so my favourite shade in this range is Golden Femme. As it is well known, Golden is perfectly suitable for wedding and party looks. So, you can wear this liner for any of your parties. Golden colour never goes out of trend. So, having a gorgeous colour like this in your makeup stash is a must.
Pigmentation: The colour is pigment packed. Keeping the price value in mind, the pigmentation is quite intense and gives a very good colour payoff. Only one swipe is sufficient for an opaque coverage. However, you can apply 2-3 swipes for building a more intense colour. You need have to apply pressure for drawing the lines on your eyes. The formula is really great and the colour shows up well on the eyes. It is super creamy and the strokes are neat.
Texture and Finish: The texture of this eye pencil is extremely soft and smooth. It glides on smoothly like a dream without any pulling or tugging. The formula is creamy and blends like a dream. The application is very smooth and even. This liner contains very fine shimmer particles which are not quite visible, but they do render a metallic touch to your makeup. So, you can be rest assured that the shimmers don’t feel heavy and you will feel comfortable wearing it.
Formula: The formula of this pencil is great and it won’t dry down immediately. So, you get some time and you can even create a soft look on your eyes by using a smudging brush. One thing that needs to be kept in mind is that during application, you have to be really swift in smudging the liner; otherwise, it sets on your eyelids quickly. But once it dries down, it stays in place and it won’t smudge at all. The liner sets to a gorgeous, velvety and semi-matte finish which I absolutely love. It will never cause any irritation or sting your eyes.
The best part about this liner is that it is so versatile. It can be used in so many ways. You can use it simply as a coloured kajal, or for highlighting inner corners of the eye. You can draw lines easily on both the upper and lower lash line. Since my eyes are quite sensitive, I have some trouble applying it on the waterline. Otherwise, it just works fine.
Staying Power: The staying power of this eyeliner is quite long. It stays for about 7-8 hours on the upper lash line without smudging or transferring. Since my eyes get watery, on the lower lash line it stays for about 5-6 hours. This is the only issue with this liner. I have not worn this liner throughout the day, so I cannot comment on the 24 hour claim. But, I can definitely say that it is a long wearing eyeliner. Those who have oily lids, it is advisable to prime your lids with a loose powder or an eye primer for oil absorption and increased longevity of the liner. This liner comes off easily with any makeup remover. I used the Garnier micellar water for removing this liner.
Overall: I feel that this is a great range to experiment with bold as well as subtle colours. The colour “Golden Femme” is really gorgeous and I’m already in love with it. The pigmentation, texture is all on the positive side. The staying power is also good but only with a few cons. I would definitely recommend it to the readers to go ahead and buy this.
