L'Oreal Silkissime Eyeliner Review

A recent CVS trip yielded new eyeliner from L’Oreal Paris. The Silkissme by Infallible Eyeliner boasts of a rich, silky formula that “glides on like silk for a soft and luxurious line with up to 16 hours of intensity.” It’s also ophthalmologist tested and suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. These are all good things right?

Now I don’t have sensitive eyes and I don’t wear contacts so I can’t speak to the truth of that claim. I put it on my waterline and I didn’t have any immediate problems. I hope that holds true for anyone with those sensitivities. What I can tell you is that it does glide on easily and it is very pigmented. It may be as pigmented as some of the more expensive eyeliners on the market.

As a make-up lover I have high-end things that I like and drugstore things that I like, but there are some things that I prefer to be high-end only. Eyeliner is one of them. Most of the drug store liners I tried were hard. Hard to put on, hard to sharpen well, hard to love. This Silkissime liner is making me rethink that.

This liner gave me a smooth line. It didn’t pull my skin when I put it on. I didn’t have to press hard to get it show up. It was soft. This liner is $9.79 at my CVS so it could be more or less depending on where you are.

With other high-end liners costing almost $20 this price is great and you’re getting a high quality product in my opinion. My only beef is that there aren’t more colors since the pencil is so great.

So have you tried it? Are you going to try it? Let me know.

      1. there is a gold band near the top of the pencil, how would the sharpener work? Does the gold band shave off easily on the blade?
