Liquid eyeliner might be one of the most intimidating products when it comes to makeup, but it really doesn’t have to be. While getting your eyeliner straight and nailing your winged cat-eye look does take practice, the eyeliner you use greatly depends on the overall outcome. I tested the L’Oreal Paris Infallible The Super Slim Liquid Eyeliner only to find that it was a lot easier to re-create my favorite classic makeup looks than I thought it would be. Ahead, all the details you need to know about this liner that’s known to help create a precise flick.

About My Skin: Love to wear makeup
I like to wear makeup and do so almost every single day. Eyeliner isn’t something I always wear, but when I do, I prefer to do a winged eyeliner look because of how it enhances the look of my eyes. I gravitate towards more natural makeup looks so products I always have on are a light foundation, concealer, bronzer, and blush, and a nice highlight. I enjoy playing up my eyes when I have the time so eyeshadow and eyeliner are definitely products I try to incorporate more often. Brands that I wear regularly are Giorgio Armani Beauty, Nars, Victoria Beckham Beauty, and Cle de Peau.
How to Apply: Easy to use
The eyeliner can be applied a few different ways depending on the look you’re trying to create.
It has a thin pointed tip, which helps to create and define wing shapes and also can be used for a very tight, thin line in between the eyelashes.
The tip of the liner is longer than most liquid liners, which can help but also takes some time to get used to. If you lay the eyeliner on its side while applying in an outward motion on the lashline, you can create a straight line that looks consistent. A big misconception about liquid eyeliner is that you need to create the line in one fell swoop. This isn’t true—you can actually break up the application by applying the liner lightly and connecting it. Since this eyeliner dries matte, it’s easier to cover up any mistakes you make while applying, which is very helpful.
The Results: Versatile but it runs
I really liked the finish of this liquid liner and how easy it was to use. Versatility is important when using liquid liners, and I feel that this one is very versatile compared to the competition. While I got the results I wanted as far as how my eye makeup looked, the eyeliner tends to run.
It was smudged underneath my eyes at the end of the day, and I had only applied it to my top lashline and not on the bottom at all.
It’s also really important to note that the cap doesn’t make a clicking sound when you put it on, and it’s imperative to ensure the cap is fully secure on the liner when you’re done using it to prevent it from drying out. Overall, the eyeliner performed well with different eyeshadow textures and dispersed enough color evenly on my eyelids without drying out or flaking.
The Value: Budget-friendly
This eyeliner retails around $9. For the way the eyeliner applies, looks, and the versatility it has when creating different eyeliner looks, the value is incredibly budget-friendly and in some ways out-performs itself for the price. If you’re someone who likes to collect or have a few different eyeliners on hand, this product is a helpful addition to your makeup routine and will successfully help you execute liquid eyeliner looks each time.
