Gel liners work wonders for me as I can use them as eyeliner, eyeshadow base and as kohl on the waterline as well. I was thoroughly impressed with the shade Royal Blue from this collection and decided to pick up the shade Chic Brown which I can sue in various ways. It has been over a year I am using this product and here’s the review on the same.
SHADE AVAILABLE – 5 shade available: Royal Blue, Sapphire Blue, Chic Brown, Diamond Black, Profound Black
PRICE – Rs 875 for 2.8gms
Packaging and Brush – The L’Oréal Paris Super Liner Gel Intenza has the prettiest packaging for a drugstore product. It comes in a pretty black-golden box with a thick glass tub filled with the gel liner. The tub has a screw lid which is golden in color and you can easily see the shade through the glass. There is also a brush. It resembles a lot with the Maybelline gel liner brush and has short tightly packed bristles with tapered end. It applies he liner beautifully, easy to create a wing and doesn’t shed a single bristle. The shade name is written on the bottom of the tub. Overall, the packaging is good, sturdy and easy to carry around while travelling.
Shade – The shade “Chic Brown” is a deep mocha brown with bronze shimmer. Now, the shimmer is hardly visible which makes the color neither dull not too bright and glittery. The shimmer give a slight reflective and rich look to the color. This is a very wearable color for any occasion and can be worn to office as well. For wedding parties, you can use this as an eyeshadow or eyeshadow base for over the lid and blend the edges slightly so that it gives a shimmery touch. It can be used with kohl for soft daytime smoky eyes. Therefore, the color is extremely versatile.
Pigmentation – The color pay off is extremely good and looks stunning on the eyes. You don’t need to apply too many layers for the color to show up at all. In fact, the color looks good without primer as well. On the waterline it still looks pretty deep without any hint of irritation or burning sensation even when I wear lenses.
Texture – The texture of L’Oréal Paris Super Liner Gel Intenza is light weight and creamy. It goes on really smooth on the eyes, both eyelids and waterline and glides like a dream. It sets down pretty quickly. So, if you have to smudge the color, be pretty quick about it. But what I noticed is that the liner dries slight in the tub even when you store it upside down. I use my Inglot Duraline to keep the consistency creamy and smooth.
Finish and Formula – The formula is water proof and smudge proof. Formula wise, it is undoubtedly a great gel liner and doesn’t crumble on the eyes or gets cracked after application. Once the gel liner sets down, it will not budge at all. The water proof and smudge proof formula goes for the waterline as well. The finish is semi-matte and looks beautiful on the eyes.
Longevity – The gel liner claims to have a staying power of 36hrs but I have worn for around 8hrs and I have to say, the longevity is absolutely stunning. It didn’t crumble or smudge at all. Also, the removal is easy but you need a good oil based eye makeup remover to wipe it off completely. The price is slightly an issue because for a drugstore liner, it is slightly higher than usual. However, the quality is phenomenal for a gel liner.
OVERALL – The L’Oreal Super Liner Chic Brown Gel Intenza 36H is a deep mocha brown with bronze shimmer that light creamy texture with great pigmentation. The formula is water proof and smudge-proof and has an impressive staying power of 8hrs. Though, the price is slightly higher than regular drugstore product.
