AMW Reviews: L'Oreal Super Liner Blackbuster

Mind you, the brand isn't PENTEL PEN though, the brand is from L'Oreal!  Ayan, trusted yan in beauty!

Don't you wish at least once in your "makeup application life" on using a real Pentel Pen marker to line your eyes each time you create crooked, uneven lines?  I'd be honest to say: "YES I once did!'

The answer to all "unsteady hands", to those who are scared to use eyeliner!  Now, you may graduate from pencil're welcome! 

Oh before you start thanking me, don't you want to at least read what I have to say with my first ever eyeliner from L'Oreal?  Come on, you're interested!

L'Oreal Paris Super Liner Blackbuster
A blockbuster or a flop?

L'Oreal says ---
Superliner Blackbuster is our thickest eye marker pen yet, making it extra easy to draw bold lines. Easy to put on, easy to take off. Go on, draw a bold line!

AMW says ---
  • Packaging, so easy to take along and the cap has this "click" sound safety.
  • You can draw thick or thin line without any problem.
  • Dries quickly
  • Lasts the whole day for me (I have normal lids).  
  • Very easy to create a perfect cat-eye look.
  • Easy to remove with regular eye makeup remover.
  • If you are aiming for super black line, you need to do a couple of swipe before you achieve it.
  • As much as felt tip pen may sound the easiest liner to use, it won't adhere on lids as well as gel, liquid and cream liners.
Literally felt like using a Sharpie/Pentel Pen!  Very easy to apply and you can easily create thick and thin line!  What's best about this pen is that you can easily create winged liner look and both eyes will match!  


  • Apply with light hand motion.
  • Instead of drawing 1 straight line, do not forget the little tiny marks instead and connect each line for a more natural look.
  • Flip the tip sideways during application.  Once you are on the edge of the eye, create winged liner using the sharp tip of the pen.
  • Re-apply to increase pigmentation.
  • Not intended to be used for tightline.  Do not apply this on waterline and try not to use this on lower lashline as the effect will be very fake.
  • If you really wanted to apply this on the lower lashline, top with an eyeshadow to create a more "natural" effect.
Will I repurchase?
No. I guess because for the fact that I am so accustomed with the heavy pigmentation of gel, liquid and cream liners, I find the black shade of this is not too black!

To whom do I recommend this to?
Users who have unsteady hands.

Where to purchase and how much?
At local L'oreal counters priced at Php725.00 (approx $17.26)


Upon purchase, the whole pen is sealed with a wrap!

which I find not too black, though they are right on the "Longwear" !

Felt tip, a bit thicker than the 2 I tried (Mentioned on Neutral portion)

With 1 swipe, you get a black line, but not too black it almost looks dark gray on me!

It is indeed long-wearing, never smudge on me but it can disappear a bit with constant eye rubbing!  On photo below, I rubbed my hand so hard before it starts disappearing.


When it comes to L'Oreal Super Liner Blackbuster, I actually find myself using this to create a super thin line, very close to my upper lashline!  So far, so good!  

Have you mastered the gel liner/ liquid liner?
Will you give this liner a try considering it is very easy to use even if the line isn't too "black"?

  1. Interestingly enough, I do have pretty unsteady hands, but I still can't master using this liner! Its width feels uncomfortable and too big. I think I have mastered gel and liquid eyeliner. It's 'cause I do it all the time! Love this in-depth review, by the way.


    1. Thanks too for reading and I'm glad you mastered gel and liquid liners now!

  2. Hindi sya ganun kaitim no sis? Nice review from you again :)

    1. No, pero you can re apply tapos mas dadark siya :D

  3. Great review! I want this! Its not too dark and does not smudge easily.

    1. well..true if you are a fan of "not too dark black liner" this is the PERFECT liner for you! :D

  4. Aww those are not the qualities I look for in an eyeliner. :( I sort of liked the way it look pa naman.

    1. awww you want the highly pigmented very dark liner ?

  5. The felt tip point was a bit intimiidating pero buti naman you can create thin lines. Sayang lang na hindi black talaga.

    1. it's okay ako inuulit ako! nakukuha ko yung black na gusto ko! :) i kinda like how easy it is to use this esp when I'm in a hurry :D

  6. kung titignan parang ang kapal nya pero gusto ko yung pagiging thin nya when applied.

    1. sis, you can create very thin and thick line with this felt tip! :D


I'd love to hear from you! Feel free to comment your questions, suggestions and just anything you may want to say! Keep smiling and stay happy!
