L’Oreal 24H Super Liner Waterproof Gel Eyeliner in Brown Review



Wow, I haven't been blogging about Gel Liners for quite some time!  Maybe, half a year?  And funny thing was, I have been using the new L’Oreal 24H Super Liner Waterproof Gel Eyeliner in Brown for quite some time and I finally realized I haven't created a proper review or entry about this pot!

This comes with a precise eyeliner brush (plus points by the way!)  and I can't help but reach out for this brush everytime I use this pot!  It feels like a match made in heaven!

If you ask me what to invest in when it comes to gel liners, my answer will always be very simple --- a brown for daytime and a black for nighttime!  Mix both together, you have a unique shade that gives an Oomph without too much drama!


The L’Oreal 24H Super Liner Waterproof Gel Eyeliner is housed in a glass pot with a metallic silver cap!  I really appreciate how companies like L'Oreal and Maybelline are including a nice eyeliner brush for every gel pots sold!  THANK YOU!

L'Oreal 24H Super Liner Waterproof Gel Eyeliner says  ---
A long-lasting waterproof eyeliner with an intense and bold colour result. The high-precision brush makes application easy and creates a perfectly smooth line. An ultra-quick drying effect creates a smudge-free, dramatic look that lasts up to 24 hours.

AMW says ---

Pros
  • Durable packaging, dropped this several times and thankfully it is still ok.
  • Comes with a brush that is really nice!
  • The gel texture is extremely creamy and glides on easily with no lid tugging.
  • Highly pigmented color in just a single swipe.
  • The shade is perfect for daily wear.
  • Staying power is good, until makeup removal.
  • Almost no smudging!  May smudge if you have extremely oily lids and did not use eye primer.
  • No Allergic reactions.
Cons
  • Not exactly matte, has a glossy finish.  That is, if you are looking for an extremely matte liner.
  • A bit hassle to bring along a pot and a brush during travel.

Overall
A creamy mousse-type textured liner that can stay on the lid until removal!  The shade brown is a perfect daily liner color.

Tips
  • Always close the lid tight even between application.
  • Wash the brush before use.
  • Wipe the brush or spritz with makeup brush cleaner after every use.
  • Apply close to the lash line for a natural look.
  • Apply thicker line for a statement.
  • Never apply gel liner on waterline.
Will I repurchase?
Yes.

To whom do I recommend this to?
Fist-time gel liner users may go for this, much more inexpensive than high end brands with great quality and can achieve similar results.

Where to purchase and how much?
At local L'Oreal counters priced at Php400.00 (approx 8.00)

Swatch :
Look closely and you see a bit of gold specks which isn't really obvious once applied.

With the brush, I like to start from the center of my lash line and gently apply connecting short lines together.

After, it gives a very natural defined-line look.

Before and After
With a little amount left on the brush, I can even use it to apply on my lower lashline (Note: Lower lashline NOT waterline)

Who among you are still gel liner users?
Would you go for black or brown?

Stay happy!

  2. I love gel liners, I'm so inlove with my maybelline gel liner in black. I'm not sure if Maybelline has a brown gel liner too but I've been wanting to get a brown gel liner for daytime use. I'm quite satisfied with maybelline and I love that they regularly are on sale.

    1. I've had the Maybelline gel liner for 3 months now and it's still as good as new, no drying yet. I cover it in between use and make sure to close it tightly after each use.

    2. I believe most pot gel liners dry out quite fast but not naman super fast. Either you left your pot a bit open (not closed tightly) OR you got an old stock :D check mo lagi manufacturing date before you purchase :D

    2. Reason I ask, cuz with my PROFOUND BLACK, I use it also as my tightline agent and find no prob at all. Also bought CHIC BROWN as soon as I've read this and Im using it everyday! Its natural lang and I dont worry about "mataray look" anymore haha

      Thanks so much for this review Nikki! BTW, been following your blogspot since 2 0 0 9

  6. What's the difference between this and the Maybelline one? My Maybelline dried out (but I cheated by adding coconut oil to it), and I was thinking of getting this one, next :)

  7. One thing I do though, I transfer an ample amount of the product onto an entirely new packaging (you can purchase one in cosmetic section) so that the original Loreal can or Maybelline's won't dry quickly and won't be exposed to so much air as you oftenly open and close many times.

    You're welcome! ; )
