Product Review: L'Oreal Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner

Ok, so I am a big fan of eyeliner and basically cannot go a day without it. I love to have my eyes pop and black eyeliner works great with my dark eyes without looking too overwhelming. I have tried many different brands of creamier eyeliners (from Urban Decay 24/7 to NYX) and usually am not too picky! I generally look for a liner that is blendable and creamy so it does not look harsh or too intense, but I also want something that will stay put and not smudge all down my face.

After using this liner for a few weeks, I have to say I am really enjoying it! It is dark enough to give the dramatic effect that I want, but can be easily smudged so as to not be toooo dark or aggressive. It is very pigmented, so even when I am using it over a shadow, it shows up very well ! It gives an effect close to liquid liner if I build it up on the lid. It is perfect for a smoky eye and works so well on the water line because of how pointy and thick the tip is. It also stays in place very well from what I have experienced (winter months only, will have to try it again in the summer!)

At first I thought the shape of the pencil was going to be annoying (cuz its fat and weirdly shaped) but it actually gives you more control over the pencil because it is shorter and a little thicker. It also comes with its own sharpener which is nice! It comes in black, gray and brown. It is not super cheap, but at $8.99 I think it is a pretty good deal! I purchased at Target, but you can also purchase product at Ulta Beauty online.

Will definitely be repurchasing this baby and adding it to my favorite liners! What are your favorite eye pencils?
