L’Oreal Extra Intense Liquid Pencil Eyeliner Review, Swatches, Photos

L’Oreal Extra Intense Liquid Pencil Eyeliner ($7.49 at Harmons) is an absolute MUST have kids. You NEED this. Carbon Black is actually blacker than Urban Decay Perversion (and a heap cheaper too).

Take a look!

L’Oreal Extra Intense Liquid Pencil Eyeliner comes in four shades and is available for around $7.99-$8.99 at drugstores now. This pencil is wicked, you seriously need to indulge.

I absolutely love Urban Decay Perversion because it is one of the blackest black eyeliners I own. Howver, L’Oreal Extra Intense Liquid Pencil Eyeliner in Carbon Black is even BLACKER than that.

Dramatic color aside….

This is a creamy, super soft pencil. It glides on so smoothly and easily across my eye without any tugging or skipping. It has a glossy look to it that takes a second to set but once dry it lasts all day on my dry eyes. It might prove a little too buttery for those with oily lids so just be aware of the creamier, slicker feel of the product if you have oily lids.

One thing that bugged me was right out of the packaging the tip of the pencil got smooshed as I applied. It’s just a really soft tip…! But once I sharpened it up I didn’t have any problems. It’s double ended as well so one end has a smudger should you desire to smoke your look out.

Overall, I absolutely loved the intensity of this pencil. It’s incredibly dramatic and such a bold shade with fabulous intensity. On top of the outrageous color and dupe-able color to Urban Decay’s popular Perversion Pencil, it also has a great formula with a creamy, easy to apply formula.

This is a must have.

Love it!

    Wearing it right now! It’s a great drugstore eyeliner. Similar to Milani Liquifeye and the Prestige pencil liners. It’s super gorgeous smudged into the lash line too!

  • Cindy

    Ohhh, this looks just lovely! I love super intense black eyeliner. I do have oily lids, but I have a tendency to set my eyeliner with black eyeshadow. I’ll have to pick this little gem up during my next drugstore haul :]

  • Jaz

    This is my FAVORITE drugstore liner. The other would be Stila Stingray – the pencil version.

  • Monica

    Thanks, Muse! 🙂 I was wondering about this stuff, and know I can trust your expert opinion. Love your website!

  • Icequeen81

    Girl I want this once I finish my gosh eyeliner this will be my next purchase IF I can find it over here. really I looooove the intensity reallly wooow thanks.

    Btw if once u decide to take a sunny vacation outside USA, here is a good option 😀

  • Cassie

    Oh lawwwwwd… when I first read “blacker than Urban Decay’s Perversion” I let out a mental ‘pshhhhhhhht’. But then… but then!!! Look at that swatch!! I swooned!!

    • the Muse

      LOL cassie I know how can anything be blacker than UD perversion!? but man it is intense!!!!!!!

  • OrangeLipstickBlog

    I can’t rock super-black liners but this formula looks great! Does it come in other colors?

  • Vic27

    Hi muse!

    How do u compare this to the new Too faced perfect eyeliners? I’m thinking of getting thy but if this is the same I’ll just purchase this! Thanks muse! 🙂

    • the Muse

      they seem creamier vic! although tf has a creamier formula these have a glossiness and sort of emollient for an easier glide, amazing ;D

  • Stephanie

    Ahh, I want to try this but I found the Too Faced perfect eyeliners to be almost too creamy for my liking. I might still pick one up at that price- I love how black it is!

    • the Muse

      wore it today and yesterday on waterline 🙂 about five hours before fading and six before completely gone 🙂

  • miss understood

    Hello dear Muse

    I read on a blog that this is a limited edition.Is that true?How does this compare to YSL waterproof eyeliner?To me they seem simiral and i love my YSL

    • the Muse

      it’s not LE Miss Understood, not sure never tried YSL Waterproof Eyeliner hun, sorry!

  • D-tan

    Looks just like the new Too Faced liner that I really love! I will have to pick this up since I’m using up the TF one very fast due to it being too creamy and breaking very easily 🙁 I can’t justify spending so much money on getting TF’s again since NYX’s is very good, but I need that smudger!!

  • Devyn

    I love this pencil! I happened to catch it on clearance at my local Target for $2.48! Had to pick up the last two!

  • Nikki

    Oh my goodness your killing me!! I now need this! My husband doesn’t like you very much. Haha

  • cat

    That swatch is gorgeous. I am a little nervous to try this though because L’Oreal Infallible eyeliner has to be the worst eyeliner I’ve ever tried.

  • Quinctia

    Hmm…almost makes me want to get it to try wearing pencil eyeliner more often. I tend to wear color more. Maybe my Perversion liquid liner will just have to do until I use it up. 🙂 But that’s sooooo black!

  • Tiffany Martin

    WHAT! This is so cool! I always wanted such a thing and now it’s real! Dang. I’m pretty excited to try, and what a cheap price tag.

  • baypay

    i love your blogs muse! and quick question, i want to buy this mainly for the lower lash line, does it smudge? cause im debating whether i should get this or splurge on the urban decay one. thank you <3

    • the Muse

      hi baypay I mentioned in the post about smudging/my eyes/how it held, etc..hope this helps!!!!!! 🙂

  • Debster

    Bought it, tried it, love it. I normally pass the liner since I’m normally stuck to Stila or UD. This is a good one, def!

  • natalie

    hi muse,

    love the review! have been trying to look for a good liner. i noticed you brought it from harmons, any chance you’re in utah?

  • JoAnn

    Like the way it goes on and stays on, however it has to be sharpened for every use and so much is wasted . This pencil lasted 1-1/2 wks…. Never will I use it again.

  • Abigail

    how do I get more out of it? Once the tip is gone there’s no way to roll it down!
