Hello, all you beautiful people!
It has been forever hasn’t it? I missed you guys so much. So the liner I’m reviewing is from my mom’s stash. I was looking for a liner since I was bored of all my liner. I found this. I fell in love with it the moment I lined it on my eyes, but later I wished I hadn’t. I just can’t un-love it now.

My Take on L’Oreal Paris Pencil Perfect Self-Advancing Eyeliner – Carbon Black:
When I swatched this eyeliner on my hand I didn’t like it. I thought it was going to be another dud from L’Oreal. But when I applied it on my eyes, I was amazed at how pigmented this liner was. One stroke was all it took for my lash line to look black as night. This liner stays true to its name “carbon black”.
For the first 30 minutes it looked like gel eyeliner and felt powdery when I touched it. I was really liking it; my eyes looked very bright and fresh. The liner gave a wet look to my eyes. But then the horror started. My eyes started looking very oily (if you look at the first picture on the eye swatch picture, you can see the oiliness). The liner started smudging and smearing everywhere. The color started seeping into the corners of my eyes and it was black everywhere around my eyes. I looked like a raccoon.
The staying power for the upper lash line was okay, maybe 2-3 hours if you’re in an AC room. But if you’re going to be out in the sun then this is a no-no. It will barely stay for an hour or two before it starts bleeding. It doesn’t stay very long on the lower lash line, maybe 1-2 hours. It doesn’t sting on the waterline.
I really wish this eyeliner was smudge-proof and not so creamy; because I love the pigmentation of this liner. It’s so black; I think it’s the best to create Emo or Gothic looks.
So guys long time no see. I missed you all. The last 2 months had been crazy for me. My great grandma got sick, she’s 90. Then after she got better, we came home and within days my cousins came so we went on a vacation to Rajasthan. I got back last week, and caught a virus. So right now I’m like coughing my lungs out. My eyes look like I’ve been stung by a bee and my lips are chapped. Thank god I had clicked picture of this liner long ago. The doctor has given me a bucket full of meds. I’ve been popping pills like candy every day. So I’ve been high for a few days now, hahaha. Bad joke.
