L’Oreal Paris New 36H Super Liner Gel Intenza Sapphire Blue
How are you all? Today I am going to review a gel liner by L’Oreal. Few days back, I was looking for a specific navy blue liner as I was not happy with my Avon eye liner. I was looking frantically online for reviews but sadly no reviews were there. I wanted a matte navy blue gel liner but it seems that the color is not available in India in drugstore brands, so L’Oreal was the obvious next choice. So I dragged myself to go to the local health & glow store, swatch and buy! This review is long due.
Ok now let me review it!
Price: Rs. 875 ouch!!
Shelf Life– Expiry is 24 months after opening.
Packaging: The gel liner comes in a small glass tub with a golden lid and a useless brush! The packaging looks very luxurious indeed! L’Oreal manages to make great moolah out of nicely packaged mediocre stuff J
My take on L’Oreal Paris new 36H Super Liner Gel Intenza Sapphire Blue
The gel liner comes with a brush which is useless in my opinion. Why? The bristles are not densely packed and applying a neat line is difficult for me with this brush. The brush which comes with the Maybelline gel liner is far better and I am using that brush only for lining.
Color: The best thing about this L’Oreal gel liner is the color apart from the luxurious packaging. The color is a dark iridescent midnight blue. This will easily pass of as black from a distance but from near, you can see the starlit midnight blue sky! The shimmer is not chunky but provides a very beautiful shine to the color. Apt for wearing day and night, office, home and everywhere!
It also comes in another beautiful shade Royal Blue.
Texture: Smooth whipped cream! Feels very soft, the brush takes up a lot of product in one go owing to the creaminess.
Pigmentation: The pigmentation is good if not great. A single swipe will give good color but not enough opacity. To get the desired opacity one needs to layer twice and more over I have noticed, it dries pretty fast, so when I try to layer; it kind of get removed a little. It does not flake on my eyelids.
Staying Power: The staying power is stunning! I have not tested till 36 hours but yes it stays put on the upper eyelids easily for 9 hours as fresh as applied in the morning. Totally smudge proof on upper eyelids. I have worn this that long. I had tried lining my water line and lower lash line but it felt little uncomfortable after some time, so it’s better reserved for lining the upper eye lids.
What I like about L’Oreal Paris new 36H Super Liner Gel Intenza Sapphire Blue?-
- Beautiful midnight/navy blue color with subtle shimmer
- Good color pay off
- Glides very easily and dries quickly
- Smudge proof
- Impressive staying power
- Will suit every skin tone
- Can be worn everywhere!
- Drool worthy packaging
What I don’t like about L’Oreal Paris new 36H Super Liner Gel Intenza Sapphire Blue?-
- The useless brush it comes with
- It stings eyes if gets into it while removing
- Also it kind of flakes while removing
- Not water line safe
- Should do away with the 36HR claim, its rubbish!
Do I recommend: Yes! The price will not pinch you solely due to the color J
Take care girls!
