Hey everyone! In my "April Favorites" video yesterday, I showed my recent HG eyeliner that I'm currently in love with : the Loreal Carbon Black Extra Intense Liquid Pencil Eyeliner. I decided to do a seperate review just on this eyeliner to show you guys how awesome this eyeliner is. I bought this eyeliner at Target for $8. At first I was thinking, "That is pretty expensive for a pencil eyeliner!", but now I see why it's alittle pricey after using it. You should be able to find this eyeliner at almost any drugstores where they sell Loreal products. I've always been using my MAC BLACKTRACK FLUIDLINE gel eyeliner to line my eyes, because the pencils don't show up as dark and bold (and smudges). I usually use pencil eyeliners just to line my waterline/tightline. Using my MAC gel eyeliner takes extra time to apply since I have to use a brush, and I have to always make sure to keep my eyeliner brush clean. This Loreal pencil is a great product to use on a daily basis, and it takes so much less time to put on! I just have to draw one line, and it's super dark and bold. Whenever I use my other pencil eyeliners, I have to draw 2-3 coats so that it shows up dark.
Here is how the pencil looks like. It has a sponge tip on the other side so that you can blend out the line to make a softer look.
It has a fine tip when you first buy it. I tried sharpening it, but it tends to break off easily and not as pointy as when I first bought it. Anyone that is currently using this pencil have any tips on how to sharpen this so it doesn't break off?
Here is how it looks using the Loreal Extra Intense Liquid Pencil Eyeliner ♥ Looks like I used my favorite MAC Fluidline Gel eyeliner!
The first picture on the left is a swatch of the Loreal Eyeliner and my Estee Lauder Smoftsmudge Black eyeliner. The Loreal one is the thicker line. As you can see, it's highly pigmented and dark. The picture on the right is after I washed my hands with water, and rubbed it with my fingers for over 30 seconds. The Loreal eyeliner did not smudge as much or come off, where as the Estee lauder pencil came right off! This pencil is highly waterproof!
There are lots of advantages of this eyeliner! It glides on very smoothly, doesn't peel, doesn't smudge, very black, bold, precise, and waterproof! I highly recommend this product for those that are looking for a great drugstore eyeliner!
