Product of the Week: L’oreal Super Liner Ultra Sharp Tip

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).

L'oreal SUper Liner Ultra Sharp review

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.

L'oreal SUper Liner Ultra Sharp

Pros:

  • Easy to use
  • Price is mid-range
  • Very travel-friendly
  • Smudge-proof
  • Very black
  • Long lasting

Cons:

  • Not as thin as Kanebo Kate eyeliner
  • Takes a while to dry

Conclusion:

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

 

Sweet Plums

Valentine’s day is 11 days away, and here’s another Valentine’s day inspired look. I probably won’t wear this on a Valentine’s day, but I just pick colors that I feel is valentine-ish. The look has plums, purple and pink in it. I feel that the colors look better on real life, probably because my camera isn’t picking up the colors since I changed my lights (grrrr)..Hopefully once I’m back home I’ll be able to take better pictures…

Anyhoow, enough of me complaining…This look is more on the smokier side. May be on the next tutorial I’ll post a look that’s more wearable for Valentine’s day.

How-to:

1. I applied Maybelline Color Tattoo in Inked in Pink all over my lid using my ring finger.

2. I used a large eye angled brush and applied a berry-burgundy eyeshadow from Lancome (discontinued) on the outer V and just above the crease. I wanted to add some warmth to the look.

3. I used a blending brush and blended it.

4. Using a flat eyeshadow brush, I applied L’oreal Purple Obsession¬† Infallible eyeshadow right on the crease (or in my case, where the fold of my eyelid is). It’s ok if some of the shadow fall on the lid area (like mine)

5. Using a clean blending brush, I blended the purple until there’s no harsh line. I used small circular motion to blend the shadow.

6. Using a flat eyeshadow brush, I applied L’oreal Sweet Strawberry Infallible eyeshadow on the inner to the center of the lid using a patting motion.

7. I applied a vanilla eyeshadow on the inner corner, but I think a peachy or champagne highlighter will work better. Oh well.

8. I lined my waterline and lower lashline using Make Up For Ever eyeliner (4L).

9. I applied Galeano eyeshadow from Kat Von D Beethoven palette on the lower lid.

10. I lined my upper lashline using Kat Von D Trooper liquid liner to create a winged liner.

11. I curled my lashes and applied L’oreal Voluminous Carbon Black mascara on both top and bottom lashes.

12. Using MAC Brule, I applied it under the brow bone.

13. I filled my brows using a mix of MAC Omega + MAC Brun using an angled brush.

14. Using a very clean blending brush, I blended the crease a little bit more.

Purple Smoky eyes

15. On the face, I applied MAC Moisture Cover on NW 15 under my eyes.

16. Then, I applied L’oreal Magic Lumi foundation all over my face using Sigma Kabuki Round brush.

17. I applied MAC Warmth of Coral mineralized blush on the cheeks.

18. For the lips, I filled in my lips using L’oreal Beyond Pink lip liner and applied Revlon Mauve It Over on top of it.
