L'Oreal Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner Review: Super Pigmented All Day Wear

Have you seen these liners at a store near you? They came out with them a while ago, though L'Oreal recently sent them to me to try out with some of their new fall items. I'm pretty much in love. The colors are so, so, beautiful!

L'Oreal Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner Swatches: Super Pigmented All Day Wear

The pencils are soft and very well pigmented. They applied very easily to my lash line, and once you've blended them (you only have about 60 seconds to do this), they stay put all day long. And these swatches don't really do the liners justice, I definitely will be buying a second Green Ivy, that color is absolutely amazing if you blend it out a little.

There is a problem with these pencils however, and that is that they are pretty hard to sharpen correctly. They really will break very easily, making you resharpen them over and over. It is enough to make you wonder why you bought the pencil in the first place (look at the swatch of Green Ivy again, you'll remember!)

I found that to get these liners to sharpen there are a few tricks. First, you really do need to use a L'Oreal sharpener. I think it must be something with getting the closest size fit possible, but my Urban Decay sharpener (which is pretty new and works great with my other liners) seems to be a smidge too big, the liner wobbles a little, then it breaks. Go for the L'Oreal one. Second, you need to be sure that your liner is cold. On days that it is a bit warm and humid, try putting the liner in your freezer for a few minutes first. So much easier! And finally, you need to go. slow. Taking your time with these liners makes a big difference!

  3. I have one in Plum Prune & it is really pretty too! But I agree with you about sharpening them - I returned my first one because I thought it was defective! I haven't been able to locate a L'Oreal sharpener yet but gotta find one!

  4. Doesn't that metal band get in the way of sharpening? I've wondered about that from the first time I saw these.

  5. @Linda Nope! It doesn't get in the way, just sharpen through it.
    @Starsky I found mine at Target, it came with a liner if that helps.

  7. I always pop my liners in the freezer before sharpening. It really helps, especially with the softer ones like UD's 24/7. And the chubby lip gloss pencils, too - same!

    Beautiful colours, cheers for the swatches.

  8. Love the swatches, especially the green. I have one that is a champagne shade and it makes my eyes itchy. These shades look pretty enough to give them a try anyway!
