Hello friends, today I am reviewing the newly launched L’Oreal Infallible Silkissime Eye Liner True Teal. The Infallible Silkissime Eye Liners are claimed to be smudge-proof, long lasting which will glide smoothly giving an intense color pay-off for 16 hours. It looks quite similar to the L’Oreal Superliner Gelmatic Pen Turbo Turquoise eyeliner which anyway does not stay long and get off easily if rubbed with skin. I was little skeptical with the Silkissime Eye Liner first but when I tried it at the L’Oreal counter I was impressed with the smoothness of application and the color. I love the teal color on me so I bought the Infallible Silkissime True Teal in spite of its similarity to the Gelmatic Turbo Turquoise. After using it for a whole day I am now pretty satisfied with the purchase.
Price: Rs. 575/- (available on Amazon)
L’Oreal Infallible Silkissime Eye Liners has the typical pencil eyeliner form. The body of the pencil has the color of the eyeliner which makes it easy to fish out the desired one from a bunch. The cap is made of plastic and does not look very sturdy. The pencil is sleek and look chic with gold band and lettering on teal body. Overall packaging is elegant and easy to carry around but I feel a twist up format is more convenient as it saves products from getting wasted during sharpening.
The texture of L’Oreal Silkissime Eye Liner True Teal is extremely creamy and silky. It glides effortlessly across the lash line. The pigment sets quickly so if you need to create a smoky eye makeup with this teal eyeliner you need to have a very fast hand. Although the texture is very creamy but the tip of the eyeliner has never broken under mild to medium pressure. It has survived the hot summer inside my purse without melting.
The shade of L’Oreal Silkissime True Teal is a bright teal with bluish tint and pearly sheen. The shade will suite pale to medium complexion especially with cool undertone.
The thing I like most about this pencil eyeliner is the awesome pigmentation. It gives highly saturated color in a single stroke. Multiple application does not make the color more intense only makes the line heavier.
The staying power is also above average. I have not worn the liner for 16 hours but the pigment stayed with very slight fading for 12 hours. It smudged a little around the corner at the end of the day because I have very oily eyelids.

- L’Oreal Infallible Silkissime Eye Liner True Teal is a bold and bright teal pencil eyeliner with pearly sheen.
- It does not have any chunky or visible shimmer particle.
- The texture is extremely creamy and silky.
- The eyeliner pencil glides effortlessly without tugging and pulling the eyelid.
- The pigment sets in a smudge-proof and waterproof finishing within seconds of application.
- The eyeliner is extremely pigmented.
- The pigment stayed on oily eyelids for 10 hours without fading.
Cons of L’Oreal Infallible Silkissime Eye Liner True Teal:
- Sharpening cause product wastage.
- The formula of the pigment dries too fast causing difficulty to correct any mistake or to create smokey eye makeup.
The L’Oreal Infallible Silkissime Eye Liner True Teal is the best pencil eyeliner along with the Colorbar I- Glide Eye Pencil (reviewed here) till date. I will keep it before the Colorbar eye pencils because the later one breaks too easily under mild pressure. You can wear teal eye makeup with white, black or gold dresses. Although the color speaks summer but during winter it will make an excellent party eye makeup if paired with black or gold party ensembles.
