L'Oreal Super Liners

I've got my hands on the latest releases by L'Oreal when it comes to their eye make-up department and have been loving some pieces more than the rest hence an entire post dedicated to these beauts.

Can I just say it's amazing how often I ignore L'Oreal make-up and completely forget that they do make-up at all. On the other hand, I am obsessed with their hair and bodycare and that's all I ever use so it's funny that I pass by their make-up. Got to make a mental note to stop by their counters more often!

First off, their Super Liner in Blockbuster. It's the fattest eye liner I have and I am sure the fattest any one would ever have. I love felt tip liners but this is humongous. Funnily enough, it takes more effort and care when using this which I believe is not what L'Oreal intended in the first place. Also, it's a little less black compared to your typical carbon black liners. I have used liners since years so can finally manoeuvre this with ease but for beginners, try it out on your hand in the store by making a straight line and see how you find it. If you love yourself a thick, cat eye than opt for this as it's going to create that in a jiffy.

The Super Liner Brow Artist is quite cool. One side has a brown brow pencil to fill in sparse areas and recreate a shape and the other side has wax in a pencil to set unruly brow hair. Quite handy don't you think? Who'd want to carry a brow set in a box on a holiday when you literally have no space at all. This I took with me on the airplane too in case I rubbed off my brows when dozing off and had to fill them in. The pencil is neither too soft not too sturdy which I like. The shade itself is gorgeous for brunettes and those with black hair. It's a little too brown for my black brows but somehow it works well. Get it if you're looking for a decent brow pencil.

Aah, coming to my favourite. The Super Liner in Perfect Slim. Isn't this the longest felt tip nip you've ever seen? It literally spans 3/4th of my eye in one stroke. Now that's what I call convenience baby! All you need is two firm strokes with this and you're done. It's not only great for pro's but also for beginners so don't shy away seeing the 'super slim' claim as it will work in your favour. Even if you have a shaky hand, this is a dream to apply. It's a lovely carbon black shade and although dries to a glossy finish when swatched, I can't notice any shine when it's on my lids. Pure love. Now I'm scared it will run out too soon and I won't be able to trace it.

Super Liner in Gel Matic is a lovely product on it's own but me and pencil liners have never got on quite well. I seriously don't know what to do with them. I mean in theory they sound great and would look great on the runway too. In real life, I don't get their practicality as they smudge and fade and go all over the place. Plus where do you apply them anyway? On the waterline, lower lash line, top lashline....argh! If you put my difficulties with this using pencil liners in general aside, this is a nicely pigmented product that is soft and easy to apply and is very much like gel liners if you don't want to fork out for the MAC ones.

I didn't dislike any of these to be honest. The quality of these was AHMAZING! Have a swatch or two when you're near a counter next time.

I gave that carbon felt tipped liner a swatch in Boots last week, what a disappointment, the new Rimmel ones are a lot more intense than this and cheaper. Boo hiss!

Been eyeing the Perfect Slim & Brow Artist for a while now, I guess I should just go and grab them :D Oh and also the Gel Liner in pot! But I found them quite pricey for Loreal, esp the gel liner =\
