Hello everybody, today I am going to share my experience with the L’Oreal Paris Super Liner Extra Black Gloss. I thought to try this liquid eyeliner after my Maybelline Hyper Glossy Liquid Liner got over. I was expecting to get same high shine finishing and greater lasting power from this one since I was paying almost triple price. But honestly, in spite of my leniency and love for L’Oreal I was little disappointed this time.
Price: Rs. 825/- (available on Amazon)
L’Oreal Paris Super Liner Extra Black Gloss comes in a black plastic tube with long screw cap. The size of the tube is small enough to fit in tiny hand bags. The cap is shaped in a way which firms the grip and make application easier. The best thing in the package is the big felt tip applicator it has. The tip is as firm as the colored felt tip marker pens. I feel more in control with firmer tips than with super thin brushes. You can draw thin lines with the tip if you hold the pen straight over the lid.
The eyeliner is not jet black; just black enough for a regular eyeliner. It is not super pigmented either as I need to draw minimum 2 lines to get an evenly filled line. The texture of the eyeliner is on the runny side. The good thing is the formula dries within seconds and sets to be smudge proof. The biggest disappointment is the finishing is not glossy enough to be claimed as a glossy eyeliner. On the hand swatches the lines look completely matte. There is some sheen on the lines on my lids. But that is not so glam like its cheaper counterpart the Maybelline Hyper Glossy Liquid Liner.
Staying power of the L’Oreal Paris Super Liner Extra Black Gloss is not above average either. On my oily lids it stays 4-5 hours before starting to fade out from the outer and inner corner. The lines do not smudge to make my eye socket like a raccoon but they comes out like rubber flakes if rubbed accidentally. The formula is waterproof so you will need an oil based eye makeup remover to completely take it away.
Pros of L’Oreal Paris Super Liner Extra Black Gloss:
- L’Oreal Paris Super Liner Extra Black Gloss is a waterproof and smudge proof liquid black eyeliner.
- It comes in a slim, easy-to-carry-around tube with secure screw cap.
- The cap is attached to a firm big felt tip for controlled application.
- The eyeliner dries within seconds of drawing.
Cons of L’Oreal Paris Super Liner Extra Black Gloss:
- The finishing is not glossy enough to claim it as a glossy eyeliner.
- Staying power is average considering the price.
- The eyeliner is heftily priced.
The L’Oreal Paris Super Liner Extra Black Gloss should have more gloss into it. You don’t need to pay triple of the price than other variants in the market which yield more shine and gloss. And if you want a firm felt tip applicator for more controlled drawing and very thin lines then try the MAYBELLINE THE COLOSSAL LINER (reviewed here). It will not dig a big hole in your pocket but will give you better pigmentation and lasting.
