L’Oreal Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner Pencils are smooth, silky, & seductive (to your wallet)!
Words that come to mind whilst using the new L’Oreal Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner Pencils: SMOOTH! SILKY! SLICK! SLAMMIN’! These insanely creamy liners retail for $ 11.99CAD/$8.99 USD and perform as well as any of my beloved Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils. Drugstore hero alert!
Note from Julie: Glambunctious is one of the first blogs I ever really subscribed to and read on a regular basis. I am super excited to have Kristen on the blog and I suggest you finish up this post then RUN over to her blog and read everything 🙂
All three Silkissime (pronounced “sil-ka-seem”) pencils sail across the skin like butter with nary a tug or skip. They truly feel like a gel liner in an easy pencil format! Even though they are unbelievably silky, they set fairly quickly and stay put from dawn ’til dusk. On my ridiculously oily lids, they hold strong for 13-14 hours! They may last even longer than that, but that’s the longest I’ve sported them.
Highlighter, a champagne pink, makes a beautiful inner corner/lower lash line luminizer and can be blended out all over the lid for a quick “Hello! I’m awake!” look.
Cobalt Blue is insane! The pigmentation is off the charts! Talk about a perfect partner for a bold eye.
Green Ivy, *the* perfect olive green liner I’ve been hunting for months, is a stunner. The golden tones in this one really bring out the yellow in brown, hazel, and green eyes!
While I didn’t experience any smudging or fading, they also weren’t a nightmare to remove. Bonus! I use a cleansing oil followed by a foaming cleanser, and there’s very little evidence leftover post-cleanse that I’ve worn liner that day. These have a very soft texture reminiscent of a kohl so if ultra thin precision lining makes your world go ’round, you may want to stick with a liquid liner.
I definitely think these beauties are an amazing value and perform on par with liners that retail for over twice as much.
Have you tried a Silkissime liner? Which color speaks to you?
