L’Oreal Paris Infallible Silkissime Eyeliners Review

L’Oreal has introduced a new range of colorful eye pencils with gel liners under the Cannes collection. These are called L’Oreal Paris Infallible Silkissime Eyeliners. While this is a breath of fresh air and is very different from the L’Oreal Kajal magique and the different colored eye pencils from Lakme, Maybelline or Faces cosmetics.

The product says, ‘Indulge your eyes in silk with Silkissimeby Infallible. Glide on smooth intensity with our first silk inspired liquid pencil. The smudge-proof formula lasts for up to 16-hours of intense color from dusk until dawn. Gives a delicate, silky shiny look with ultimate perfection in a single stroke. Available in 8 vibrant shades.’ The shades are –

  • Black
  • Charcoal
  • Pure Purple
  • Gold
  • Silver
  • Cobalt Blue
  • True Teal
  • Plum

 

These L’Oreal Paris Infallible Silkissime Eyeliners are a gel liners which are way too creamy. Since the product needs to be sharpened for re-use which is not user friendly. Tip breaks away very easily only on a single usage. Though you may use it as a base but creating a fine line with these eyeliners is a big issue.

I feel not very comfortable with the idea of sharpening eye pencils because then they loose the fine tip finish. Though I am pretty impressed with the wide variety of colors and I would have tried them all but my experience was not too great with the four I got.

The best part is that stays for quite a long time. Once you put this on you do not have to refresh it throughout the day. It can be on its own and doesn’t smudge later. The color is well defined and you can give it a try if you have a thing for colors like I do.

Price – INR 575 for 1.10g

Pros –

  • The colors
  • The gel finish
  • The ease of application and availability

Cons-

  • Too expensive
  • a lot of it goes waste in breaking
  • sharpening is not easy and since the tip breaks it cannot give an even finish after the first use

Trial room etiquette

Shopping means lots and lots of trying new clothes and we girls just love that. It could be trying for a new size and we all want to fit in the smaller than usual :). I think they have limited the number of three garments only because they know it is almost impossible to control a girl from trying in new stuff they have in their store. We all go shopping here and there and most of the brands like Zara, Kazo, Vero Moda are our regular favorites. Though we have been using their trail rooms for years now we still need to learn trial room etiquette.

I have list of trial room etiquette which needs to be effective from this very moment –

  • Size matters

Yes Size does matter, trust me whenever you are not so sure about your size; it is advisable that you pick up the larger one. It is great to fit in the smaller one but you don’t want to spoil their clothes while trying to get into them.

  • Layering

No doubt layering is a part of your style but do not try a new top over what you are already wearing. It will never show you the perfect shape which flaunts your body.

  • Do not shy away

Girlies never, never shy from getting the right underclothes just because you don’t feel perfectly comfortable discussing about it but I am sure you will find some shop or else you can read about the ultimate bra guide.

  • Make up

Though most of the Indian stores fail to mention it but you have to always make sure that your make up does not soil the dress. You will never buy a dress soiled with your red lipcolor or not to mention your red sindoor or even kohl in the most rare cases. I have seen girls be most careless about it.

Kajal Wars

Since the time Loreal has come up with Magique kajal it has entered the economy kajal sector with Lakme and Maybelline. It can be a little tough for you to choose from them. Kohl is one beauty product that I swear by and I never leave home without it.

I felt that Loreal  Magique is highly priced and does not provide as much value for money as the other two do. Also I have not had a great experience with Maybelline Colossal in the past so my verdict goes to Lakme Eyeconic Kajal.
