I am on a marathon review phase and I am enjoying every bit of it. My last review was a gift and continuing with that phase, this was a recent gift from a dear friend of mine. Knowing my love for make-up, it has always been an easy gifting choice for friends. I do not mind making my friends’ lives easier any given day.
Moving on with the review, I have something other than lipstick and skin care to review today. This is the L’Oreal Super Liner in the shade Black, but it is one unique variant, known as automatic slim liner. Read on to know how this fared for me.
The pencil is a very slim one which is in a twist-up form. It has a plastic golden colored cap which is pretty strong and shuts with a click. I would like to draw special attention to how slim the pencil is. I have attached a picture where you can check how slim it is compared to our Faces pencil. I might call it a size zero among pencils. Might be an issue for some to get proper control, but for me it is fine.
It is slightly dry on swatching on my wrist and the liner is so slim that I have already ended up breaking the tip twice.
Rs. 650/- (could not find the quantity).
My Experience with L’Oreal Super Liner Automatic Slim Liner in Black:
I feel like banging my head when I make a wrong purchase myself, but when it is a gift, it is like a product I can play with. It is like my toy. When I got this surprise gift from a sweet friend of mine, I was so happy. Not just because it was a gift but because she took the pain to find something unique for me.
As for the liner, it is the thinnest and the most delicate liner I have come across. It comes in a twist-up form so I make sure I twist up only as much required, but still I go back and forth to build the intensity which breaks off the tip. It has helped me to draw thin lines on my lid and also for the days when I like to line only the outer third of my eyelid.
The staying power is average. On my waterline, it stayed on for an hour and on my lids, it was there for about 3 hours. I am not too impressed with this as the price we pay is high but the results are below average. I would have been considerate if it was a unique color, but a black liner with poor pigmentation and limited staying power is a no-no!
Pros of L’Oreal Super Liner Automatic Slim Liner in Black:
- Helps to draw thin line.
Cons of L’Oreal Super Liner Automatic Slim Liner in Black:
- Low staying power.
- Poor pigmentation.
- Slim body might cause grip problem.
