L’Oreal Paris Superliner Black Lacquer : Review and Video

Hello Darlings,

I am feeling fresh and happy as I had been to a much needed vacation to Himachal Pradesh. The snow covered mountains, cool breeze, the great company cleansed my soul.

In this post, I am going to review a product which I used during my holiday. That’s one of the products I can’t just live without – eyeliner.

This eyeliner is a free gift with a magazine I had subscribed for. Let’s see how this eyeliner worked/not worked for me.

Brand :
L’Oreal Paris

Product name :
L’Oreal Paris Superliner Black Lacquer

Price :
600 INR for 6 ml

Shopping Link

Shelf life :
2 years. 6 months, once opened

Colour :

Black

What Company has to Say About the Product:

L’Oreal Super Liner Black Lacquer Liquid Eye Liner has a special sponge tipped pen for the creation of fine lines or thick, sultry flicks. Colour is applied with precision and ease and dries without smudging. Ophthalmologically tested.
Benefits:
Precision Waterproof Eyeliner route.
Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.
Pen accuracy: Net and fast track ultra.

Packing:
It comes in a sturdy plastic tube packing. Golden fonts on a jet black tube makes it slightly attractive. Tube is quite thin so makes it perfect to carry it around. Also the cap is quite tight that makes not to worry about any spillage.

Applicator:
As the company says, it is a sponge tipped pen applicator. It is thin enough to draw fine lines.

Colour:
It is a deep black colour.

Fragrance:
Yep this liquid eyeliner has a pungent smell. But it fades away very quickly.

Finish:
It gives a glossy finish when applied. But once settles, t’s more of matte finish.

Drying Time:
Unlike many other liquid eyeliner I have used, this one dries off really quick when applied.

How Does it Feel On Eyelids?
One thing that made upset about this liner is that it is too sticky. Once it settles, it becomes so sticky and makes eyelids stiff. I had hard time opening my eyes completely. It was like something was pulling my eyelids.

Does this smudge?
Yes it did..!! Usually the liquid eyeliners don’t smudge, they get flaky and fall off. But somehow this one smudged. Trust me I had hard time to fix it.

PS : I had applied this eyeliner on a hot day where I was in hot sun for most of the time. So I am assuming that it melted and created unwanted panda look..!!!

Waterproof?
No..! It can be easily removed with just water.

Things I Liked:

  • Travel friendly packing.
  • Applicator is nice and good to draw fine lines.
  • Deep black colour looks nice.
  • Dries really quick.

Things I Didn’t Like:

  • It feels very sticky on lids. This makes it very uncomfortable to wear.
  • Not waterproof
  • It smudged.
  • Ingredient list is not mentioned.
  • Some might find it pricey.

Is This On My Repurchase List?
No.

Will I recommend?
I have tried and loved different eyeliners from L’Oreal Paris. But for the fact that I was not comfortable wearing this particular eyeliner, I don’t think I will recommend this to anyone.

Here is the demo 😁 Where I have tested the product for smudge proof and waterproof claims.

This is What I Want to Say About Nykaa Matte to Last Range

You guys anyways know, I have this hobby( that’s the coolest or fancy word I chose to replace the word obsession) of buying all kind of lipsticks. Added a new member to my collection is this beautiful liquid lipstick from the brand Nykaa.

Nykaa is one of the online stores for cosmetics and accessories. Along with selling different cosmetics, they have started their own cosmetic line, with the same name. Highlighter, nail care, foundation, concealers and of course lip products to mention few.

IMG_20180724_132615_Bokeh.jpg

The range of liquid lipstick I am talking about is with the name Nykaa matte to last. As the name suggests it’s a matte finish lipstick. This means zero glossy effect.

Most attractive thing about these lipsticks are their unique names, inspired by some of the cities of India. Which are unique and special in their own way. There are 18 different shades, all with some attractive names. Dilli, Bombae, IT girl( Bengaluru), Mastani (Pune), Madras Kaafi (Chennai) etc. Aren’t they super cute???

Let’s talk about the shade I bought. It’s the shade Gul. Inspired by the hilly regions of India.

Total shades available:

18

What company claims and the Ingredients :

IMG_20180802_175442.jpg

Packing:

This packing reminds me of that of Huda beauty liquid lipsticks. A sliding, tiny case is just as cute as a button.

Outer cartoon has the similar shade as that of the lipstick inside. This makes the recognition easier.

Each packing has unique design on these cute outer cartoons. Particularly some unique monuments or things that symbolises the name of the city the particular lipstick is representing. For ex : Gul has these beautiful hilly region design, The shade Mastani has the beautiful Shaniwar wada(Her palace) design on it.

IMG_20180802_175319_Bokeh.jpg

The product comes inside this tiny plastic packing. The rectangular shaped container is quite sturdy and the lid is quite tight. Which makes it a good travel companion.

The plastic case is transparent and has the brand name printed on it in my favorite color – black. Thus you can keep an eye on the remaining quantity of the product.

On bottom of the case, is the sticker which has the number and name of the shade. Thus making it easier for you to pick the particular shade from your collection.

Applicator:

Its doe feet applicator. Soft and easy to use.

Tint :

It is a pinkish shade. As you can see in the picture below. This is how it looks in day light. Even if you are a beginner and not so comfortable with lipsticks, you can still carry this shade. Looks very natural and light.

IMG_20180724_132720_Bokeh.jpg

Color payoff :

I loved the color payoff. One swipe, you are done. The pictures you are seeing here, I have applied just a single layer of the lipstick on my lips.

Staying Power:

Ahhh I am just amazed by its staying power. PS: I am not paid by Nykaa for this review. haha. If you are a lipstick lover, you know the pain of touch ups. If you are also lazy enough for touch ups, join me to know further.

I had saved this lipstick for one of my office parties. I had applied it on my lips at around 10:30 in the morning and when I went to wash my face before dozing off, the tint was still there…!!! It did fade. It wasn’t as intense as it was at the time of application (of course). But the tint was still there even after good amount of time. #Impressed

IMG_20180802_175420.jpg

Did it bleed?

While the lipstick was on, I had great food. While we were having food I was bit conscious whether the lipstick bleeds. Which can make me look like a vampire. haha. But for my goodness it didn’t bleed post having food. It did transfer though, to my water bottle, the juice glass and spoons.

Did it dry my lips?

The finish is matte. Most of us have the insecurities as the matte finish might highlight  the dry patches on lips. But this liquid lipstick has impressed me. After Huda beauty, I would love top recommend this matte lipstick to my girlies. It doesn’t really dry your lips. I did felt a little dryness in the beginning. But once it settled, the finish was matte and didn’t highlight any dry lines on my lips.

IMG_20180724_132751_Bokeh.jpg

Does the product stands for what it claims???

  • Superior matte finish – Yes
  • All day long – Yes quite a good time.
  • Transfer proof – Not really. It did transfer even after it was completely dried.

What I loved:

  • Comfortable matte finish.
  • Lasting power is impressive. No touch ups required.
  • Travel friendly packing.
  • No preservative.
  • Cruelty free.
  • No paraben.
  • Does not burn your pockets.

Will I repurchase???

Yes. I am going to purchase the shade Bombae. Very soon…!!!

Will I recommend???

Of course. In fact, I have already done that. Umm rather, the shade has already sold itself. My colleagues were awed by the shade I had wore for the party. I was so impressed at the end of the day, I did recommend this range to those who were interested to add a beauty to their collection of lip products.

Mygirlypedia Rating : 4.5/5 ( It did transfer a bit so deducting 0.5 )

If you want to try liquid lipstick, without making hole in your pockets and want a non drying formula – give it a try.

Don’t forget to let me know how you find this range. 🙂

This is What I Have to Say About Sunny Leone’s Liquid Lip Color

Helloo,

Sunny Leone – A woman who doesn’t really need an introduction. Half of the world, I mean half of the men in the world worship her beauty and women are either jealous of her beauty or appreciate her beauty and courage to start life all over again. Between, now she is not only a Bollywood film star, also a proud mommy of three kids…

Well, I am impressed by her for two reasons.

One – It takes hell lot of courage to come out of such industry and start a new life. That too in a country like India where everyone is good at nothing but judging people.

Two – Even after being one of those ad*lt star, she has preserved her innocence. I have seen couple of her reality shows on television. She is so cute and inspiring. The way she inspires people by her words is amazing.

Last year she started with her clothing line and perfume line. Recently started with her makeup line.

IMG_20180322_184638.jpg

It includes only my favorite cosmetics – Lip products. Yeahhhh…. !!! I was anyways impressed by her lip makeup in the reality show – Splitsvilla.

Lip products are – lip liner, Lipstick and lip gloss.

Being one of crazy lip product fan, bought lip gloss on Monday evening.  Just to wash away those nasty Monday blues. Received it on Wednesday. Quite impressed by the speed delivery.

Name :

Star Struck By Sunny Leone

Available Shades:

There are five shades of lip liner, lipsticks available. Below are the shades.

Shade I Bought:

Baby Doll

IMG_20180322_184622.jpg

Price:

799 INR

Ingredients:

IMG_20180322_184615.jpg

Packing:

The outer cartoon is of color combo – black and silver. Ingredients, price details are printed on it along with name.

The lip color comes in a typical plastic tube pack, with an dove feet applicator. The plastic used is sturdy and transparent. So you can identify the shade easily.

But I am not really impressed with the packing. The opening of the plastic tube is not tight enough(at least the one I have received.)

IMG_20180322_142407.jpg

Due to which it has become so messy…!!! This opening is typically for closing the cap tight and removing the extra product from the applicator wand. Look how messy it looks in the picture.

IMG_20180322_142457.jpg

Hence, I cant say it is travel friendly as there is leakage of product from the pack

Shelf Life:

3 years

Fragrance:

Smells like butterscotch candy. Fragrance is similar to that of Kylie glosses.

Texture:

It is soft. Glides easily.

IMG_20180322_143133.jpg
My ‘Pouting’ Skills Aren’t Up to the Mark…

Color:

It’s a peach shade. Can be carried by anyone without being conscious about the shade.

Color Payoff:

It is good not best. Single swipe is not enough for pigmented lips like mine. You need at least couple of layers to get that full coverage.

Is it Moisturizing?

Yes. It doesn’t dry my lips.

Does it Transfers?

Yes. It did transfer a bit.

Staying Power:

It stayed on lips for an hour approx.. Post that the glossiness was gone and a faded tint was left on my lips. Overall it stayed on my lips for 2.5 hours approx. (I had actually noted down the timings this time.) It’s very less I know. Because I have glosses and liquid colors from other brands which stayed on my lips more than 5-6 hours.

Pros:

  • Availability
  • Didn’t dry my lips.
  • Nice shade.
  • Sweet, mild fragrance.

Cons:

  • Not a travel friendly packing. (at least the one I received is not.)
  • Staying power is less.
  • Contains paraben.

Will I repurchase???

No. I didn’t find it worth the money.

Will I recommend???

No. I have plenty other from my list which I would love to recommend. But not this one.
