So when I saw L'Oreal's new liner, the extra-intense liquid pencil eyeliner, my jaw dropped and I knew I have to get my hands on those! Since it was new, I was expecting that drugstores would have a special section for it so I only looked on these specific section. I was pretty disappointed because I couldn't anywhere at first and I thought that maybe it will come into Canada later (especially in Quebec, we always get the new things last -.-'). When I went to pay a visit to my friend at the drugstore where she works, I was able to get my hand on it (YAY!) and it was the last black that was left (the other one was grey). =D
When I got home, I tried it immediately. I was so excited lool! I was afraid that it would turn out to be like all the other drugstore pencils, crazy smudging on the lids after a few minutes. I have oily "mono-eyelids", well I have double-eyelids but the lower part gets into the upper part (you know what I mean? Refer to pictures in my FOTD if it's unclear), so smudging and racoon eyes are a major concern. I swatched it on my hand and I was pretty amazed by the color payoff. It's very black and it goes on suppeeeeeerrr smooth, totally like butter!
I waited a bit so it dries and smudged my finger on the line I just drew. Surprise! It wouldn't budge! I tried harder and nothing. The line was still intact. I wore it the next day and the weather was very hot and humid, I was afraid that my eyeliner wouldn't stand such weather but it did! When I came home after my 8 hours shift, the line was still perfect, even in the inner corner of my eyes, where is tends to be the most oily part thus a lot of smudging (please take note that I used a primer and I had eyeshadow on too). I tried it one day without primer and eyeshadow and it only smudge in the inner corner part only.. As for the waterline & tighlining, the color was still hanging on tightly =P I don't have really runny eyes so this isn't a big problem for me.
Overall what I like about this product:
- My new HG! <33
- Long-lasting but not waterproof
- Retails for about 10$CAD
- Comparable to Make Up Forever aqua eyes
- Goes on like butter!
- It's limited edition! Booo... I asked a SA at Shopper Drug Mart if they're part of the permanent line and she told me no =(
- The pencil gets short fast = a lot of sharpening = waste of product
- Again, they should make it permanent! grrr..
Packaging: 4/5 If it was a automatic pencil, it would be perfecto!
Product: 5/5 Deliver what it claims, my new HG!! (Replacement to my MUFE aqua eyes in 0L)
Price: 5/5 Got it for around 10$CAD (compared to 19$ for MUFE's aqua eyes)
Scent: 5/5 No scent.
Would I repurchase? Yes absolutely. I even bought 2 more as a back up since I know it LE looll!!
If you're a liquid liner lover but a pencil user, I highly recommend this product!! =)
