L'Oreal Paris have recently brought out some new additions to their Super Liner range. Graphic lines around the eye area are big for Autumn/Winter 2013 so the new products have been designed for creating those looks.
I was kindly sent the new products to try out and I've been having a little play with them tonight. If I'm honest, I very rarely wear eyeliner as I'm not the best at applying it!
The Super Liner Blackbuster* is a thick felt tip pen style liner in an intense black shade that is perfect for creating a statement look. This liner is very easy to apply and glides on smoothly without any dragging. You can use the fine tip for a thinner line or tilt the pen sideways for a thick line. If you're a more experienced eyeliner user I'm sure you could create a fab look with this. I ended up looking like a bit of a goth gone wrong...
The Super Liner GelMatic* is a twist up pencil liner that is good for creating a medium line. It's great that this has a twist up applicator as you don't need a sharpener. This is easier to apply than a regular pencil as you don't have to press hard to get a line. You can create more of a smudgy look with this one too. This isn't quite as black as the first liner but it's still a dark black shade and it may be better if you want a slightly softer look.
The Super Liner Perfect Slim* is perfect for neat thin lines. It has a 0.4mm tip and a grip area to ensure maximum control during application. This was my favourite eyeliner out of the three. Normally I can't really apply eyeliner to the top eyelid as I can never get close enough to the lash line but this liner makes it so much easier. I found that I could just press the liner sideways to get a strong black line and it was quick to go all the way along the lid with it. Because it's so thin it's easy to press against the lash line too. Hopefully I'll be able to experiment with eyeliner a bit more now that I've got one I can work with!
The Super Liner Brow Artist* is a double ended product where one end is a coloured pencil to match the shade of your brows and the other end is a wax to set your brows in place. There's also a brush attached to one of the lids for grooming the brow and helping to blend the pencil in. Unfortunately I was sent the shade 'Brunette' which is too dark for my brows but it definitely seemed like a great product and I'd love to try the 'Blonde' shade as I think it would help give me a more groomed look.
