Today I’m reviewing the L’Or Paris Super liner ~ Instant Impact Felt Liner which is felt tip eye liner, part of the Cannes 2012 Special L’Or Electric Collection.
Price : Rs 695
What L’Oreal Paris says about the product :
A sponge tipped felt pen with deep colour for instant impact. Light up your eyes!
Thanks to its soft and supple sponge tipped pen, Superliner Instant Impact Felt gives a quick, easy and uniform application. Create a line as thick or as delicate as you wish. Hold the eyelid taut with your other hand to facilitate application.
Superliner is a liquid eyeliner in a special sponge tipped pen and thus the colour can be applied with ease and precision as thin fine lines or thick sultry flicks.
My Take on the product
The Instant Impact Felt Liner is a sleek marker pen style eye liner with a fine tip that can be used to draw precise strokes on the lash line. The packaging is a slender black pen with a golden cap which fits tightly. It is very compact, super easy to use and would be the perfect travel companion. The tip has enough stiffness to allow for easy and precise application and it gives a dark black color in a single stroke. It dries almost instantly on application and a slightly glossy finish that I love in black liners.I did not experience any discomfort on my eyes while using this and the color lasted on me all day till I removed it with a makeup remover. However, it is not waterproof and dissolves when it comes in with a few drops of water hence if you are someone who is prone to sweating around the eye area, I would not recommend this product.
Apart from this drawback, I find it a fabulous product! The biggest USP of this product is its ease of use. I have used liners in all forms – liquid liner with brush/felt tip, pencil liners, gel liners – and I find this marker pen style the easiest to use among all of these. The color appears weaker in the arm swatch but you can how strongly black it is on the eyes. The product is slightly pricey but coming from L’Oreal Paris says a lot about its quality I’m hoping it would not dry up too soon like the Lakme counterpart did. I’ll update this post if I experience premature drying of the liner.
