This week in Product of the Week, I’d like to introduce L’oreal Paris Super Liner Ultra Sharp! I bought this when I was in Hong Kong. There’s a Sephora-like store in Hong Kong called Sasa, and it carries a variety of makeup, skincare etc just like Sephora, but they also carry a lot of Asian products from Japan, Korea, China etc. Anyways, one of the few things that I bought there is this eyeliner.
As you all know, I love myKat Von D Trooper eyeliner, as well as my Kanebo Kate Super Sharp eyeliner. However, Trooper isn’t available in Indonesia, and neither is Kate. This L’oreal Super Liner, however, is available in Indonesia. I’ve seen it in several department store as well as online store (zalora, lazada etc). Since I was already in Sasa, I decided to buy it and give it a try.
This Super Liner only comes in Black when I was in store. I don’t think it comes in any other color. What is so special about this eyeliner is the fact that the bristle is very slim! Only 0.003mm tip. It’s very sharp, pointy and you can create a thin line.
Anyways, getting back to this Super Liner, I’m not sure if the ones sold in Indonesia is the 0.003mm tip. I know there’s a few other tips from this line which is 0.05mm and 0.8mm. This 0.003mm is the smallest I’ve found so far.
I love the packaging, I think the pen is very sleek and slim. The fact that it’s a pen eyeliner makes it even more appealing to me. I don’t have to carry seperate brush, and it makes it so much easier to travel with.
I’ve worn this eyeliner for about 6 hours, and it stays the whole day. I don’t think this eyeliner is waterproof, but it’s definitely smudge-proof. This eyeliner takes a while to dry, so you want to make sure you close your eyes (or look down) after application. If not, you might end up with some product on your lid. However, since it does take a while to dry, it makes it easier to be fixed should you make a mistake.
This eyeliner cost HKD$99 (around USD$14). I believe this product is not available in N. America. I think the N. America counterpart of this product is the L’oreal Paris Infallible Super Slim eyeliner, which is a felt tip eyeliner. This one is a brush tip.
This eyeliner costs Rp. 149,000 in Zalora and Lazada. I’m not sure how much it is in store. (I am not affiliated nor endorsed by zalora or lazada).
In terms of application, you can create thin, medium and even a thick line if you prefer. Such an easy way to use and apply. The color is very black, yet it doesn’t end up shiny like my Kat Von D Trooper liner. Since it’s soooo thin, I can get it to the most inner corner part of my eyes.
Nevertheless, I still find Kanebo Kate Super Sharp liner creates a much thinner line than this one.
- Easy to use
- Price is mid-range
- Very travel-friendly
- Very black
- Long lasting
- Not as thin as Kanebo Kate eyeliner
- Takes a while to dry
I chose this as my product of the week because should I run out of my 2 favorite eyeliners, I’ll probably stash this one up in my kit. It’s definitely a lot more affordable than the other 2 (Kat Von D and Kanebo Kate), and definitely more widely available where I am living right now.
I’m giving this Super Liner a 4 stars out of 5
