L’Oreal Extra-Intense Liquid Pencil Eyeliner in Carbon Black - Review

L’Oreal Extra-Intense Liquid Pencil Eyeliner in Carbon Black is by far the best and my favorite  eyeliner pencil that I have ever used, and trust me i am obsessed with black eyeliners . So i can say i have had alot of different brands , types and i guess i can say I've pretty much tried everything. 

Now, get the intense look and luxurious feel of a liquid liner with the easy application and precision of a pencil with L'Oreal's Extra-Intense Liquid Pencil Eyeliner. It glides on smoothly and evenly for beautiful definition in a single stroke. The smudge-resistant formula provides 16 hours of non-stop wear. 03 oz.
Almost a year ago i did a little comparison of black pencil eyeliners , At the time i only had tried few but in all these months ,i bought almost ton more and i can say i stand strong that
L’Oreal Extra-Intense Liquid Pencil Eyeliner in Carbon Black is intense, deep and insanly pigmented. It’s so intensely soft and so pigmented that it sometimes when i apply it on my waterline and i blink , its smears along my upper lashes and makes thing look blurry.So word of cautious ,Don't blink for atleast 30 sec. If you though urban decay 24/7 eyeliner in zero is black then you will find this Super black.You will see the comparison in a minute.

L’Oreal Extra-Intense Liquid Pencil Eyeliner in Carbon Black is like a gel liner in form of a pencil. The liner applies like a pencil dries like a gel liner. The pencil is so soft that it just glides on the skin with very minimal pressure. This dries within 30 sec so you can still smudge as long as you do it fairly quickly. I use qtip , fingers or sometimes the smudger it has on the other side of the pencil when i want a smokey eyes or even on its on when i applying it on the lower lashline for kajal effect. When its set ,it wont smudge for the whole day. It lasts good 8-10 hours on me. If you have a problem with smudging or oily lids just apply a primer like UDPP or translucent powder before applying.L’Oreal Extra-Intense Liquid Pencil Eyeliner is extremely soft and requires sharpening with each use .Just put in the fridge for few minutes and then sharpen its good to go.This thing does NOT smudge whatsoever for the whole day. For removal i prefer using a cotton ball or a Qtip in oil based remover or Baby/oil and then it comes off easily.

For weak- hearted , Who cant handle the black black , smudge (sometimes) i will suggest you to buy the brown. In the below swatches, I I waited about 30 seconds for the liners to set and tried rubbing them with a wet wibe and you can see that L’Oreal Extra-Intense Liquid Pencil Eyeliner is the only one which stayed longer than others.

In my opinion, the L'Oreal liquid pencil eyeliner is even softer and darker than any eye pencils i have tries , prestige total intensity comes second but for sure better than UD 24/7 pencils.I love them so much that i bought a back up before i came to Pakistan. I will highly suggest that you give these a try.
