L'Oréal Paris Superliner Blackbuster

What a disappointment.

I'm so behind in the eye liner, and liquid eyeliner game that when I realised how old my Rimmel liquid eyeliner was, I immediately went to Boots to rectify the situation.

I went in to the shop with the intention of trying out a gel liner, something I've not previously used. Obviously when it first came out everyone raved about the Maybelline gel liner in the pot, and Rimmel had an offer on their gel pot liner, decisions.

I ended up hovering around the L'Oréal stand and trying out their pen marker liners on my hand. I was impressed on first impressions so I took the plunge and bought the Superliner Blackbuster liner.

It wasn't until I got out of the shop and was leaving work later that day that I realised I had just ended up buying a liquid liner in marker form, which I was fine about because I wanted something different from the fiddly little brush that no one uses anymore.

So I was happy.

Until I actually tried it. It is SO difficult to use this liner; impossible to get a decently smooth line and even have both eyes similarly matching. I think the applicator is awful and the product itself is dull and takes at least two coats to get a decent black line.

I wore this liner to a meal out the other weekend with my family, and when I got home at the end of the night, the black line had transferred itself to my top eyelids. Not a good look. And the night wasn't even strenuous, and by that I mean I didn't even break a sweat. 

Overall, I would avoid this liner and absolutely wished I'd read up some reviews (like I do with pretty much everything else) before hand, because it cost me a stupid £6.99. Waste.

If you have any better suggestions for good liquid or gel liners, throw them my way as this will be out of my makeup bag as soon as I find a replacement.
