Loreal Paris Super Liner Gel Intenza in Sapphire Blue Review (2) L’Oreal Paris Super Liner Gel Intenza in Sapphire Blue Review

The two phrases that I absolutely hate when it come to shopping (esp. makeup) are “Out of Stock” and “Limited Edition”. I’m dead sure many of my friends here also feel the same! So when L’Oreal introduced new products in their Summer Collection 2015, I was worried I’ll have to face either of the two statements from the SAs at Beauty Stores. But to my surprise, these newbies are not LE and nor were they OOS. I picked up a gel liner called the L’Oreal Super Liner Gel Intenza in Sapphire Blue. Let me explain why I love it.

My Experience with L’Oreal Paris Super Liner Gel Intenza – Sapphire Blue

This is my first gel liner from L’Oreal! I was somehow so into the Maybelline Gel Liner that I totally ignored gel liners from other brands. Also I do not reach out for my gel liners on a daily basis hence it made no sense for me to buy two black gel liners, considering they dry out very soon. But when I saw the pretty colours of the L’Oreal Gel Intenza liners, I was sold! So I decided to pick up a Blue one. The one I actually wanted was the shade Royal Blue, but by mistake, I added Sapphire Blue to my cart and so here’s the review ladies!

Packaging: The L’Oréal Super Liner Gel Intenza comes in a classic glass jar with a Gold lid and detailing. I absolutely love the Gold lid as it adds some extra glamour and makes it looks expensive and high end. It also comes with a brush which I like. I really don’t know why people dislike it. It’s so firm and perfect to create thin and thick lines. I don’t know, I like it.

Colour: The colour is a gorgeous navy blue shade with iridescent light blue shimmer particles. The shimmers look so so so beautiful. The swatches do not do justice to the actual shade and the presence of shimmer. It looks way beyond beautiful in person. The other shade which I wanted to pick up called Royal Blue, is an electric blue-ish shade which can worn on special occasions. But the shade Sapphire Blue is an everyday wear navy blue colour. Pure Love!

Texture: Formula wise the L’Oréal liner is very smooth and creamy. It actually feels and applies like butter and is very easy to work with. I think it’s way creamier than the Maybelline Gel Liner and this also gives me some hope that this baby will not dry as fast as the Maybelline one did.

Smell: Fragrance Free!

Pigmentation: Oh boy! What do I say here!! The pigmentation is just mind blowing. It gives such an opaque colour and finish in one swipe. I do not need to go on over and over again to create a dark line which I love.

Longevity: Though L’Oréal claims 36 hour longevity, I am not sure if it actually stays put for this amount of time. Frankly speaking, I don’t even care to test that out because I never never never sleep with my makeup on. I have worn it for 14 hours at a stretch, from morning till night and it was sitting on eye lids like no other. Fantastic longevity I must say!

Quality: Now I know why these L’Oréal Gel liners are priced a bit on the higher side. The quality is absolutely amazing and demands a price tag like this. It is worth every single penny you shell out on this baby. I will never be going back to my Maybelline Gel Liner anymore!

 Rating: A

Recommendation: I absolutely love L’oreal Paris Super Liner Gel Intenza in Sapphire Blue! I am so glad I tried a gel liner from L’Oréal. I highly recommend this range esp. this shade to all who love gel liners and are comfortable using them. Also, people who love playing with colours on their eye lids should try at least on shade which they like because these babies are amazing. Take a break from the regular black liners and amp up your kajal game with some new shades this summer!! Ok, before I sound like a L’Oreal sales person I should stop!
