I'm more of a cream liner kinda girl. I like the brush application and the texture is just easier to apply in my opinion. However, I'm on the permanent hunt of a new and better liner. *eternal unfulfillment*I've read many positive reviews about the L'Oréal Super Liner in Carbon Gloss, which is a special category apparently although to me all the L'Oréal eye liner look the same. It's like the whole thing Maybelline loves to do with launching 4 mascaras with the same brush but with a different packaging. A bit boring but...anywaysI decided I had to get my hands on this little baby but after days and days of restless search around different Brussels drugstore, I couldn't find the carbon gloss version. My desire became an obsession. I HAD to get this Carbon Gloss liner.
Eventually I got my hands on it after a UK swap and I'm so glad I did.The liner is very thin and soft which makes the application a bit harder. If you're not handy with your eyeliner, this will be a disaster to work with but if you know how to apply it, it gives you the finest yet strongly defined line.
The liner lasts and doesn't smudge.
You may need two coats for an even application.
I'm always pleasantly surprised with the result. It's a good eye liner for a daily basis (if you're steady) as it gives a very thin "natural" finish. I'm a bit afraid it will dry quickly though.... only time will tell!
Typical face of the day at uni !
