Product Review: L'Oréal Lineur Intense Felt Tip Eyeliner in Carbon Black

Hi Everyone!!

Although I love eyeliners, I am scared of liquid eyeliners because I don't have a steady hand. Also whenever I have tried them before in the past, it took me a lot of time to make my eyeliner look perfect. That is why I always avoided using it and turned my attention to pencil and pen type eyeliners. But when working with eye shadows and false eyelashes, i found that pencil and pen eyeliners don't stand up to the task and liquid or gel eyeliner is the only way to go. I heard a lot of good things about Loreal Lineur Intense Felt Eyeliner, so I bought it in the color 690, Carbon Black and that is what I will be reviewing today!

What I think about this product:

It is difficult to work with a brush type eyeliner in my opinion, so I bought  L'Oréal's Eyeliner because it has a felt tip. Felt tips makes eyeliner application incredibly easy and quick. I love the felt tip of this product. It is thin but not too thin making it easy to draw a thin or thick eye line, as desired, with it. It is flexible and long making it easy to work in long strokes reducing the application time. The Felt tip in my opinion is perfect as it allows you to work with precision! 

The consistency of the formula is good, it is not gooey or too thick or too runny. The formula applies very nicely on the eyelids, making depositing pigmentation very easy. You don't need to go over one place again and again to deposit pigmentation. The eyeliner has a glossy finish, so if you prefer matte finish, it is not for you. It feels very comfortable on the eyelids to the point that you won't even realize that you have it on. Also it is not waterproof, so beware of that. If you have oily eyelids I don't recommend it because this formula does not stay put. If you rub the eyeliner even gently, it comes off. I would not recommend wearing it in hot and humid climate as sweat will wash it off right away. I only recommend it when you are using eyelashes and you want to hide the lash glue or if your are going to be indoors with air conditioned rooms.

I really like the packaging. The felt tip is great. The wand has a long cap for a good hold and short handle that connects the cap to the felt tip which makes this eyeliner worth your money and time. I love that the formula is highly pigmented but wish that it was better in terms of staying power. n the end, I would say that it is worth trying out, but surely it is not the best liquid eyeliner in the market.

Final Verdict: 4/5
