A few months ago, I reviewed Rimmel ScandalEyes Gel Eyeliner (here) that I picked up when I was in the mood to try a gel eyeliner. It was relatively easy to apply, but my wing disappeared not long after I applied the liner.
A number of readers suggested that I try L’Oreal Infallible Lacquer Liner 24 Hour Gel Eyeliner because it stayed put. I bought the eyeliner at CVS during a recent sale, and I chose the charcoal gray shade, Graphite. I think the charcoal shade is a good choice for this well over 40 gal. It’s a little less harsh, and I think it works with my blue eyes. And it’s great for everyday in my suburban neighborhood.
This is going to be a quick review because what I have to say is pretty simple. What a great recommendation! This stuff is great!
Although it comes with a little brush that is definitely usable if necessary, I used my own Sonia Kashuk bent neck eyeliner brush that allows me to make a skinny line next to my lashline. It goes on like a dream. I may still be a little wing challenged, but with this easy to apply gel and the skinny SK brush, it’s about the easiest eyeliner I’ve ever applied. To be on the safe side, I usually remember to put a little eyeliner primer where the wing goes, but regardless the wing stays till I take it off. Because my eyes are downturned, a subtle wing helps my eyes look more lifted, I think.
If you’re looking for an affordable, easy to apply, long lasting gel eyeliner, give L’Oreal Infallible Gel Eyeliner a try. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. It comes in a variety of shades including a couple of blacks, navy, brown, Graphite the gray that I bought. It’s priced somewhere around $7-9 depending on where you buy it.
Thanks again to all of you who recommended this eyeliner to me!
