Review of L'Oreal Extra-Intense Liquid Pencil Eyeliner by lovelane
After buying this on a whim and falling in love with it after the 1st time using it, I could not wait to come to MUA to see if others agreed. It appears for the most part this is a winner.
The colors are opaque which is 'Intense" according to L'Oreal but if you are looking for a liner that is pigmented w/deep colors, this is it.
The texture for me is amazing, I have a love-hate relationship with liquid liners. How many times have I had to start over because the line is too thick or not even? The end result - at times 15 minutes later - is a beautiful line that makes my eyes pop. Pencil liners have always been hit or miss. I am sure all of us have had the pleasure of a pencil being as dry as the Sahara Desert with no slip. The gel liners with the little brush (IE L'Oreal Hip) have been my "go-to" liners lately.
This "liquid pencil" liner is the best of both worlds, easy to apply pencil with plenty of slip but not too much as to smudge. Easy to put in a make up case & not needing a separate brush. The look is similar to a liquid and makes eyes get noticed. I have found making a thin line is next to impossible but the type of line this makes is what I prefer. It holds up well & lasts from the beginning of my work day til the end. The only 'con' is that it needs sharpening but for me that is a trade-off I can live with.
