Review :L’Oréal’s New Paris Infallible Never Fail Lacquer Liner 24H in Espresso.

I have never liked gel eyeliners. I tried Bobbi Brown, Inglot, MAC, maybelline blue one. I love my liquid liners and they are the only ones that stay. but the gel liners look so inviting in their tiny pots. And I wanted to get something in deep brown because black sometimes looks harsh on  me. And then my trip to walgreens happened. And the rest is on this page (tee hee)

My experience with the liner: Packaging wise: it’s cute! Comes in a glass pot having plastic screw top and with small flat liner brush. The brush is also really usable & the quality is fine.    The formula is really great. Also, it has an intensely dense consistency – really thick. It applies glossy and opaque and after a while becomes matte. This color – Espresso- is so dense brown, it almost looks black. It surely is absolutely fade proof and does not budge in water , BUT- on my super oily lids (which transfer every liner), it stays for about 5-6hrs after which it starts to dissolve. If I apply it very thin & close to the lashes, it stays longer. Also it stays a lot longer on the lower lashline & waterline – almost till the end of the day. Did not once burn my eyes or irritate them when applied on the waterline.  It gets off easily with a makeup remover.

The only CON I’d say is that I have to apply it in multiple strokes to get an even line.  It kinda applies jittery the 1st time.

Verdict : It’s a perfect dupe for the Bobbi Brown one and gets full points even from oily lids.  Absolutely recommended!

No pics for the brush coz I lost it somewhere 🙁

  1. Thanks for this review! I like to wear brown liners for daytime and will bust out the black liners for night time =) Also, thank you for coming by my blog! New follower! xoxo

  2. i have a similar color from bharat & dorris .. thy have wide range of gel liners … must give it a shot .. sad part is thats only available in Mumbai ..

      1. nopes last time I checked we did not have any gel liners, not every collections comes to UK or even they launch it in Europe they don’t bring it to UK, maxfactor had eye shadows launched here 3 years after they launched in Netherlands.

          1. I tried ordering MUA, the shipping costs more than the products. hehehe
            but will definitely try. hope u get the gel lliners 🙂

          2. you got few options, 1- Do you know MY US, where you can buy a US address a space there is UK alternative you can post everything to do that space and than arrange posting to your actual address but it is pricey. 2- Arrange an ebay user a trustable one ask her to buy and ship to you, 3- if you have any relatives here ask them to buy those for you. 4- keep an eye on blog sales

          3. I really rely on blog sales. I got my mua undressed palette from there & i was so happy 🙂 thanks for ur tips too..i was actually looking for a swap with someone.
