I was super ecstatic when these eyeliners were launched in India. I have read so many good reviews about these eyeliners and was about to get it from the US. But glad I could get it here! I bought this shade Charcoal among the other colors. So let’s get to the review.
Price: 575 INR for 1.10g
My Experience with L’Oreal Paris Charcoal Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner:
Let me start with the packaging. The pencils have color coded bodies, which needs to be sharpened and comes with a plastic cap. The cap doesn’t seem to come off that easily making it travel-friendly. They came with an outer packaging too which had the necessary details.
I was about to get the purple shade which caught my eye but then I played safe and went for this instead since I wondered if I’d be able to pull it off or not. I am equally happy I got this and not regret my decision even a little bit! Charcoal is a really beautiful, intense black with noticeable silver shimmers. The swatch is just a single swipe of it and it gives the full intensity! Now you must be wondering about the shimmers. Trust me, the quality is simply spot on! The shimmers not once have felt gritty or even made their presence felt! Shimmers are known for their fall out and being messy, but once it is applied it stays in place until you remove it. Not a single speck has fallen out.
The formula is the best thing I liked after the color. It glides like dream! It is super soft and smooth and there is absolutely no tugging or pulling. I even tried it on my waterline and it did not sting my eyes! I don’t usually apply shimmery products to my waterline but this was irresistible. The formula is also just spot on! They’ve nailed it with these eyeliners! But I’ve also read that the silky touch is lost after it is sharpened and it needs to be sharpened only with the L’Oreal sharpener to retain the softness. Well, I don’t know how far this holds true since I have not yet sharpened it.
The staying power is also really impressive. It claims it stays for 16 hours, and I could see that on my lash line it stayed for a whole day. Even gel liners fade from the inner corners but this one stayed. On my waterline it is about 2.5 hours which is good for my watery eyes. Also it is completely smudge proof and water proof once it sets. One may feel it is overpriced but it is really worth to be invested on.

Cons of L’Oreal Paris Charcoal Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner:
