Beauty gals know beauty gals. And in the holiday season, a cheapie set of eyeshadows from that gimme-gift aisle in the seasonal section just won’t do. C’mon, your girls deserve to get something they’ll actually use – and love.
Recently I decided to give L’Oreal’s HIP Cream Eyeliner a try. Combine the cute curious little cream-liner pot with the “Buy one, get one free” sign flashing before my eyes, and it’s a done deal.
At first, I was kind of hesitant when I saw the slant tip applicator brush it came with. I am a liquid liner devotee, and cream is still fairly new to me. I was in total shock at how easily it just glided on, and in a perfect line! Not only that, but the color (Black 905) was bold (guess that’s why they call it High Intensity Pigments) and didn’t smudge at all!
Since I loved L’Oreal’s Telescopic mascara so much, I decided to review the accompanying liner. I wear eyeliner nearly every day, and I love the consistency of this product. (I use Black #810.) The tip is a stiff felt tip rather than a brush, which I usually don’t like, but the flow is thick, luscious black that dries matte.
This eyeliner takes some finesse to apply (as most liquid liners do), so I wouldn’t recommend this liner for beginners. As well, it doesn’t dry very quickly, so take care to not blink or apply mascara before it’s set.
