I always wanted a good highlighting gold liner. I love to experiment with my liner and my brown eyes compliment colored liners beautifully. Today’s review is going to be on L’Oreal Paris Infallible Silkissime eyeliner. This range has 8 beautiful shades and there is a great variety of shades. I have the shade Gold. Let’s get into the review.

My Experience with L’Oreal Paris Gold Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner:
The liner comes in a normal paper outer packaging with all the details. Actual liner comes in a gorgeous color coded gold pencil with a clear cap. It is a sharpen-able pencil but there is no sharpener provided with the pencil. As an expensive liner it should have sharpener. Overall pencil looks nice and it is easy to carry around.
I have the shade Gold 280 and it is a beautiful metallic yellow gold shade. It has fine gold shimmers which make it a shiny highlighting gold shade. But shimmers are not overpowering, it is a fine melting shimmer. I absolutely love this gorgeous highlighting gold shade. It goes with any complexion.
It is a super pigmented shade. One stroke is enough for the perfect color. It needs maximum two strokes for the exact color to show up. It works super as an inner corner highlighting shade. I also love to use this as a normal liner; sometimes I also use this as a kajal. This lovely gold shade makes my eyes appear bigger than usual. It makes them more attractive. Gold is totally in trend so I can wear it in my own way. It compliments my brown eyes beautifully.
It has a super smooth creamy texture which glides like dream. I can’t even feel the touch of it; it is a smooth liner which blends like a feather. But for its super soft texture the tip breaks easily and it needs to be sharpened frequently. The product gets used up quickly and the sharpness goes only after one use. It always needs a light hand application and a soft touch gives the best result. It gives a flawless silky finish which looks perfect on the eyes. It has a perfect shiny matte finish and it is totally a smudge proof liner. You can try a super smudge test on it and it still stays on your eyes. It doesn’t transfer on lid and never messes up.
It looks great on eyes. It never feels dry or patchy even with layering. It dries out so quickly on eyes but if you want to blend it then you need a very quick hand. It is easy to draw a line with this and it works nice as kohl also. But for a sharp winged liner it needs a perfect tip. There is no tugging during the application. Overall procedure is super smooth and takes only a few minutes. I can create a long winged liner with this and it gives a dreamy look to my eyes. It never irritates my eyes. It neither settles on fine lines nor does it crease. The formula is totally water proof.
L’Oreal claims that it is a 16hr wear liner and this is so true. It stays really long on eyes, more than 12hrs. Basically I never wear my makeup that long but it stays until you remove it. It doesn’t fade and keep your eyes perfect throughout the day. After 6-7hrs the corners and waterline looks little faded out but that is pretty normal. I am amazed with its quality and staying power. It’s a perfect party wear liner. I have oily skin and it can survive a super hot humid summer day without a single mess. Generally a water proof liner takes time to remove but it is easy to remove with a makeup remover wipe.
I never tried any liner like this. It is just the best one I have ever tried. Formula and the overall quality are just great. And the shade can convert any look to a gorgeous makeup. It is totally a worth buy and it is really a luxurious experience with this. Only the super creamy texture gets finished it quickly. Otherwise I have no problem with this liner. Put this gold liner on and make your appearance like a diva.
