L'Oreal Super Liner Carbon Gloss Review & EOTD


I've never been a fan of liquid eyeliners with those thin flimsy brush applicators. Which is why I love this one because of the sponge-tipped pen applicator that is so easy to line my eyes with. The color is glossy black and very pigmented. It's not like one of those sheer black liquid eyeliners you have to  pile on to get the black-black. It is not waterproof, which I like in a liquid liner. The waterproof ones tend to crack!
It is Ophthalmologically tested, which I guess is gonna be good for my sensitive eyes.
Over all, a great liner. I think when the black liquid finishes or dries up, I'll keep this applicator to use with my gel liners =)

Available in all L'Oreal counters and priced at Rs.570. A little overpriced for a liner, in my opinion. Looks like it should cost no more than Rs.500 to me.

Used the liner for the first time today....
For this EOTD I used:
  • Applied shimmery white eyeshadow on the brow bone and tear ducts.
  • A lime green shimmery eyeshadow on the lids and inner half of bottom lash line
  • A chocolate brown eyeshadow on the  outer V and blended it into the inner half of the crease
  • Lined my eyes with Loreal Super Liner Carbon Gloss
  • Lined the waterline with Black Maybelline Unstoppable liner and smudged the outer corners with the same chocolate brown eyeshadow.
  • 3 coats of Max Factor false Lash Effect Mascara in Black

Have you all tried this liner?

  11. I've not tried this but heard many good things about it. I am in love with my Bourjois Pinceau Liner in Black. The liner brush is super thin so it gives me better control.
    The next best liner is Shaline by Shahnaz Hussein. That also had a thin brush and a cute mirror on the bottle. xx

  16. You seem to be a pro at blending.. Your eye makeup is totally awesome.. :)

    does the maybelline liner you used for lining you waterline stay put or does it smudges like kajal?? and can it be used with contact lenses..??

    ReplyDelete
  17. Thanks all :)

    @Priyanka ~ It doesn't smudge like a kajal at all. It's a smudge proof pencil. Mine is the one with a grey body with black cap. I think it is safe for contact lenses wearers, like the other ones listed on the Maybelline website

    @Wanderlust~ Will do very soon.

    @PCMP~ Haven't tried those...will check them out

  22. Love your eye makeup! I may have to try this, I'm glad they did away with those little tiny brushes for the liquid eyeliner, this definitely looks much easier to use

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
