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 –
- Pure Purple
- Cobalt Blue
- True Teal
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.

- a lot of it goes waste in breaking
