Another amazing new launch by L’oreal Paris is their new Infallible Gel Crayon Eyeliners. These liners are waterproof, budge-proof and come in nine beautiful, highly pigmented shades though we’ve only got five of the shades available here in Ireland. Personally, I’m absolutely in love with the formulation of these gel eye pencils as they remind me of an old favourite that has been discounted for some time now and that’s the Avon Super Shock gel liner if anyone remembers it.
Like I mentioned this pencils come in nine beautiful shades, some are more faltering than others colour wise but all of them have high and intense pigmentation. I managed to pick up three of these liners from Boots when they were on a 3 for 2 offer and the first shade that I got is 001 Back to Black which, since purchasing it, has become a holy grail product for me. I even prefer it to my Maybelline Master Precise Skinny gel eyeliner pencil.
These pencils have a gel formulation to them which means that once their applied they will set and become budge proof until you go in with an oil-based makeup remover to take them off. The downside to this formulation is that the pencil texture is very very soft so you will end up going through it very quickly and needing to replace it often should you so desire. These retail at roughly 7.99 euros a piece which isn’t the cheapest when you need to get a new one every month.
The second shade that I got is 005 Super Cooper and this shade is a stunning burnt metallic brown shade that looks amazing on both brown and green eyes. I will say that I wish the packaging of these was a twist up instead of needing to sharpen it as I feel if it was twist-up you’d probably get the most out of you product rather than wasting some of it while sharpening it.
The final shade that I picked up is 011 Violet Va-Va-Voum which obvious has been named by a Nicki Minaj fan over in L’oreal HQ. This shade is probably the only real one out of the three that has some sheerness to it but I think that’s down to the actual colour of the liner rather than the formulation. The shade is actual supposed to be a pastel but Unfornately it doesn’t have the paleness to pull of the pastel effect it should. Instead it’s more of sheer lavender that looks almost light brown on the waterline.
It’s not a terrible shade but if you were looking at vibrancy when going for this colour than you will be sorely disappointed. I like it though and I love the formulation of this pencils so I definitely will be repurchasing them especially the black.
