L'oreal Superliner Gel Review

Ok, so lets begin by stating the facts on this product.....we just don't get along!

I was quite excited about the product when I purchased it (well obviously or I wouldn't had spent my dosh on it!). This product sold it self to me that it will last up to 24 hours and create a striking black look! (this excited me even more lol!) RRP of £6.99

I loved the packaging and that it came with a small eye liner brush! 

I applied this gel, which went on beautifully and as it says on the tin it created a nice intense look and I also found the brush very handy which did its job very well.....so you may be wondering at which point we fell out with each other....well I'm sad to say it happened about 10 minuets after application!.

I had by this point applied all my make up and was very happy with the end result, I then went on about my business (as you do) - then to my annoyance as I looked in the mirror for a quick check to find  that the gel eye liner had transferred onto my upper lid and the bottom of my brow bone, not a happy Becky!

I corrected it and re-applied my eye shadow, by this point i noticed that the gel looked grey - not black, so decided I would touch it up with a bit more product and also allowed it to 'set' to see if that helped.

Throughout the day I noticed the eye liner became very grey in colour and the product has somehow nestled into the creases of my lid! All in all I decided that we needed to part our ways so off came the gel liner (once I had taken my pic) and all went back in the box.

I am truly disappointed with the results of this gel liner as i really thought it was going to be a lovely product, I love the packaging and the texture of the gel, but for some reason it just didn't take well to my eyelids.

Maybe in the future I will get this liner back out its box and give it another chance, but for now it will remain at the bottom of my make-up bag. (sorry!)

This is how it looked at the end of the day (worn approx 8 hours)

Here is the result of the the gel eye liner after wearing it for approx 8 hours - I know that is quite a while, however I think when it is claiming to last up to 24 hours - I would expect it to still look pretty good by the time I am ready to remove my make-up before bed time....

I would love to hear anyone else's experience of this product, I hope that most people who have tried it have found it to be a success! it would be very interesting to find out!

So please leave a comment below :)

  1. Im looking for a gel liner thats actually black! Im currently using clinique brush on cream liner and avon supershock (in the pot the pencil is amazing) theyre just not black enough not so much grey but jst not jet black which I want best so far is sleeks inkpot which is cheap 2 i'll be sticking to that until I find what im looking for and when I do I will definitely blog about it to fill u in :D x

  2. If you do find one that it totally black, please let me know! I was sooo disappointed with the results of the superliner gel as on the packaging is told me it would do everything I wanted it to do!.
    I'm thinking that the MAC Black Track may be the only true black liner that's going to give me the effect I want, but I will certainly be looking around before I buy it as its quite pricey!

  3. Havent tried blacktrax might give it a go, I heard great things about the clinique one but Im not impressed I always end up going over the gel with liquid liner which defeats the object x

  4. I am a fan of liquid liners but I seen so many positive reviews of this one that I just want to buy it :) x

  5. I was really excited about this eyeliner and so much wanted it to work for me so felt really disappointed! Its great to hear a mix of reviews on this though - I guess the only way to know if it works is to try it.
    If you get some, let me know how you found it, I think L'Oreal still have the offer on of by 3 get cheapest free (or something like that!).
