L’Oreal Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner Review & Swatches
Take a look!
L’Oreal Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner ($8.99) is a new 16 hour wear eyeliner pencil available in four shades that is launching at drugstores now. According to L’Oreal the formula wears for 16 hours without smearing, fading, or flaking. It’s inspired by a liquid eyeliner but gives you the ease of application in a pencil.
It’s an incredible eyeliner pencil. I purchased it in Black Noir and it’s incredibly pigmented with a blacker than black finish. Waterlining this this is really great as it has a smooth, easy glide on this area and the color lasts for a solid five hours. On the lash like it has the same smooth, soft glide without tugging or skipping! It produces a beautifully lined eye with very little work as the color just glides on like butter. If you already own L’Oreal Extra Intense Liquid Pencil I’d say the formulas are very much the same but the Silkissime is a touch more matte and not as glossy. I do think Urban Decay Black Velvet is considerably more matte in finish.
On my drier eyes it wears for a solid ten hours without fading, smearing, or flaking yet it still removes easily enough after the end of the day with my favorite oil based eye makeup remover!
L’Oreal calls it a silk inspired pencil…I suppose that’s somewhat accurate as it has a silky, powdery dry down.
I don’t if you necessarily need to purchase it if you already own the Extra Intense Liquid Pencil as the formulas are fairly similar. It is an excellent eyeliner pencil though and worth every single penny especially if you’re not interested in paying for Urban Decay’s Perversion Eyeliner or Black Velvet!
