L'Oreal has a hit with this Super Slim liner. If you are looking for an inexpensive liquid-based eye liner that is relatively easy to apply, looks modern when on, and lasts all day, you should try this one.
Everything about this product is well considered. The case is slim and easy to hold. The applicator is long, highly tapered with just a wee bit of flex. The liner (I have the black) is opaque and smooth, neither matte nor glossy. It is neither too thick, too thin, nor too gloppy to apply. It glides on relatively easily and it dries quickly.
Applying liquid liner still requires a super steady hand and the ability to hold one's breath for long periods of time. No sneezing or twitching allowed! If, however, you can master the application Zen, you will be able to apply a thin, even line along your lashes. You might need a Q-Tip to neaten up a bit, but you will be able to accomplish a decent, even looking cat's eye by building up layer upon layer until you hit the perfect line-to-lid ratio.
The thin, firm applicator is particularly good at eliminating the dread "bunny rabbit eye" look by reaching down between the lashes and darkening that area and lining the inner eyelid, below the lash line, as well.
I tried this liner on a naked (clean, no moisturizer nor sunscreen) eyelid and was amazed to find that even hours later it wouldn't flake or budge when rubbed with my finger. Mostly, I use this liner as a final defining dark line after I have applied an eye primer (Mac Paint Pot in Painterly), a thick sweep of a colored pencil that can be smoked such as Smashbox Waterproof Shadow Liner - Lapis 0.09oz (2.76g)
, and powdered shadow over the whole shebang. Even layered over a smudged colored pencil and powdered shadow, this liner went on smoothly, dried quickly and lasted until I removed it right before I went to bed.
Not too shabby!
