L’Oreal Highlighter, Green Ivy, Silver Sky Infallible Silkissime Eyeliners (Part 2)

L’Oreal Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner ($8.99 for 0.03 oz.) is described as a long-wearing, smudge-proof formula that will glide on smoothly and last for 16 hours You can see the first three I reviewed here. I’m quite fond of this formula overall, but that wear claim is substantial and these just don’t make it even close to it–the best wear I get is about ten hours. There is still visible eyeliner on after as long as fourteen hours, but it’s much, much thinner and less vibrant. The color payoff and glide-on consistency are the most impressive aspects of the formula, even with their brighter, more colorful shades.

L’Oreal Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner

L’Oreal Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner ($8.99 for 0.03 oz.) is supposed to be a long-wearing, smudge-proof formula that will glide on smoothly and last for 16 hours. My experience with them is that they’re long-wearing–easily nine to ten hour wear–but sixteen is a total stretch as there is only about a third of the eyeliner remaining. They don’t smudge or budge during the day, and they set fairly quickly, so if you prefer to smudge out your eyeliner, you may find this formula dries too fast. What I really liked about these was how creamy and silky the texture was, as they glided easily across the lash line. The color payoff was pretty good, though the purple shade was the weakest of the three. I wish they didn’t claim such a long wear time, because I loved two of the three shades I tested, but their scores are being pulled down because of that claim.
