March 11, 2014 • Beauty, Liquid Eyeliner, Review
A few weeks ago my beloved Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner (full review here) dried out. As much as I loved it, I wanted to see if I could find a cheaper option. Along came the L'Oréal Infallible The Super Slim Liquid Eyeliner.
I have mixed feelings about this liner. My favorite thing about it is that it has a semi flexible felt tip, which makes it incredibly easy to apply. It's a very intensely pigmented black, which is another plus. My one problem deals with the staying power. Even with an eye primer on, I still found that after a few hours I had a slight case of raccoon eyes..that is to say some of the liner had fallen under my eyes. The next time I wore this liner I topped it off with some matte black eye shadow, and I found that this helped the liner stay in place. This was a slight nuisance to me because I have so little time to get ready in the morning- but I think I can bear with it because besides this, the liner was really good.
I can't say that it was quite as good as the Stila one, because that one lasts all day without being set with an eye shadow, but it was definitely a hit in the rest of the categories. I would recommend it to anyone who doesn't mind putting a little extra time into doing their eyeliner. And at less than half the price of the Stila one, I'd say this is a bargain.
