L’Oreal Infallible Matte-Matic Mechanical Eyeliner ($8.99) is a new permanent matte eyeliner that’s launching with the L’Oreal Spring 2016 Collection at drugstores now in four shade selections.
Shoot! Score! L’Oreal does it again!
L’Oreal has consecutively released excellently formulated eyeliners for the past several years starting with my personal favorite L’Oreal Infallible Gel Lacquer Liner which holds a coveted spot on my Best Drugstore Eyeliner (and the worst) list!
But L’Oreal Infallible Gel Lacquer Liner is just the tip of the iceberg! Don’t forget L’Oreal’s fantastic L’Oreal Infallible Silkissime Eyeliners as well as L’Oreal Extra Intense Liquid Pencil. Let’s just say L’Oreal has been on the game with their eyeliners lately and they bring us yet another fantastic formula with the new Matte-Matic Mechanical Eyeliner Pencil!
Gone are the days when having a lighter on handy was the norm during eyeliner application. Ya know, because the damn eyeliner was so dense you had to heat it up and melt it down for creamy application.
Toss that lighter.
Drugstore eyeliners have evolved. And they are as creamy and as luxurious some of my favorite eyeliners like Urban Decay’s popular 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils!
L’Oreal Infallible Matte-Matic Mechanical Eyeliner is the answer to the call of oily lid girls everywhere who just couldn’t get on board with the creamier and glossier consistency of some of L’Oreal’s more recent eyeliner offerings. This is a pure matte finish eyeliner with a super creamy texture that glides across your lash line like butter, smudges, and smokes out to picture perfect flawlessness plus it wears like a boss on waterlines. And yeah, it’s better than Urban Decay Black Velvety 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil at half the price!
I should say I’m not a huge fan of matte eye pencils as I like a more glossier formula. I also find matte eyeliners are rather dry and dense. Not the case with L’Oreal’s formula. This is a soft, creamy consistency. I will say mattes are fabulous for waterline work especially ones with such a creamy consistency. This is great for applying at the waterline as the matte finish holds up a lot better than a glossier pencil and you’ll get a longer wear from it. Likewise for those with oilier eyelids that needs some matte enough to wear without smudging. I have drier eyes and I had no issues with it smudging once it set (within a few seconds) and it wore well until I took it off. On my waterline I got about five hours of wear before I needed a touch up.
I’d change one thing though. I used to be obsessed with mechanical pencils but now I find them a pain so I’d totally dig a regular old pencil. I find pencils last me longer as well!
Aside from that, I really liked L’Oreal Infallible Matte-Matic Mechanical Eyeliner.
