L'Oréal Super Liner Carbon Gloss


I know I feature a lot of high end products on my blog, but I do use some "drugstore" makeup as well.  Basic eyeliners are one of them, and I think this liquid eyeliner from L'Oréal is worth every bit of £6.50.

With a L'Oréal Super Liner, you're basically getting a Lancôme Artliner for ⅓ of the price (Lancôme Artliner retails for £19.90).  I used to use Lancôme until I found out L'Oréal Super Liner is pretty much the same formula (L'Oréal owns Lancôme) and applicator.

As the name suggestes, the Carbon Gloss Super Liners are VERY black and has a glossy finish.  I don't have an Artliner to compare but I have swatched it beside Bobbi Brown Gel Liner in Black. 

This swatch doesn't quite do it justice but the Super Liner gives a much more intense line of black compared to the Gel Liner.  But with this intensity there is a drawback - it is much harder to apply, especially if you don't have a steady hand.

Most liquid eyeliners tend to have this felt tip applicator now.  I find they help with drawing a straighter line -it is easier to control compared to the tiny super fine brushes.  If you have difficulty with liquid eyeliner, try resting your elbow against a hard surface.
