L’Oreal Paris Super Liner Gelmatic Pen in Turquoise Review
When the L’oreal Cannes collection came out last year, I was in the market for a nice blue/turquoise eyeliner. I don’t really like brightly coloured eyeliners. The only ones I own are the Faces Longwear in Navy, which I think of as a neutral (and which, moreover, is hardly bright), and the Revlon Photoready two-sided one in Emerald/Nude, which frankly, I bought for the nude. I always thought I’d try the Colorbar one, but then I came across this and it seemed pretty similar, and I always find L’oreal’s marketing is really very good and makes me want to own the entire collection however unreasonable and unfeasible that may seem (*blushes*). I ended up buying it on a whim and I’m really quite happy with it.
L’oreal Says: L’Oreal Paris introduces its first gel eyeliner in a pen format. Quick, precise and easy application combined with intense matte colour pay off for just a stroke of audacity. Comes in five rich, luxurious shades.
Automatic crayon with precision tip for easy application Micro gel pigments formula for intense colour pay off.
- 24H wear
- Matte finish
Colour: This eyeliner is a very pretty, almost perfect turquoise. It’s adequately shiny and the creamy texture makes the colour stand out and not seem dull like some blues and turquoise tend to be. The colour is intense and opaque in two swipes. It has a gorgeous metallic sheen without any shimmer.
Texture and Longevity: The texture, like the name claims, is exactly like a gel liner. It’s very, very smooth and creamy and glides onto the eyes. However, the creaminess caused the liner to smudge and crease. I fix this by setting it with powder, but it is a little cumbersome. Other than that it lasts through the morning till after lunch. It doesn’t irritate eyes. This shade is definitely not a matte liner, but it has a fantastic finish that is nicer than you get with the cheaper eyeliners.
Packaging: It comes in a standard, retractable eyeliner tube so no sharpening required. The sticks are all colour-coded at the butt so it’s convenient to spot.
- Gorgeous turquoise colour
- Very-nice bright finish
- Smooth application
- Doesn’t sting or make eyes water
- Lasts a decent amount of time
- Smudges/Creases if not set
- On the pricey side
Price: Rs. 425 for 0.3 gms
Recommendation: L’oreal Super Liner Gelmatic Pen in Turquoise is a beautiful, intense turquoise shade with a gorgeous sheen and gel liner-like creamy finish. It smudges and creases after half a day, so I recommend setting it with powder. I will definitely be checking out other shades from this range.
