L’Oreal Paris – Super Liner Black Lacquer in Black Vinyl

Apologies for the terrible photo of this Super Liner Black Lacquer eyeliner from L’Oreal Paris, the pen is so shiny and reflective that it was a nightmare to photograph. Luckily that’s the only bad thing about this product as it’s a really great liquid eyeliner.
Back in my teenage years I used to use a lot of L’Oreal Paris products (or just plain old L’Oreal as they were known then!), I particularly liked their lipsticks and the metallic tubes always made me feel I was using a premium product despite the affordable prices.
This Super Liner Black Lacquer is a black liquid eyeliner. I’ve been using the Black Vinyl shade, so called because it’s so shiny and glossy it does actually look like it has the texture of vinyl – you can see this from the swatch image above. It’s a really intense deep black shade.
The applicator is a bit like that of a felt tip pen, although the nib is very long and thin and slightly bendy which allows you to apply a really thin line of lacquer if you want. I actually find this easier than using a liquid eyeliner that has a brush applicator, and I like to apply it AFTER my mascara so that I can get up really close to my lashline and it also prevents any mascara smudges from marring the pristine glossy effect of the liner.
This L’Oreal Paris Super Liner Black Lacquer can be worn in so many ways – a thin line with a completely neutral plain eye, in a thick line with pale lips and a beehive a la 1960s, or as part of a smokey eye combo. I like to wear it to set off a pale silver eyeshadow, as per the image above – unfortunately I can’t really create a winged shape at my outer eye as my eyes are the wrong shape and tilt downwards at the outer corner but I do like to thicken the line towards the outer eye for a really nice effect.
Super Liner Black Lacquer is really long lasting – it’s practically bombproof – and won’t rub off. It must be removed using a good eye make-up remover, and tends to come off in little strands which is a bit odd, almost as if the liner has formed a little layer of plastic!
L’Oreal Paris Super Liner Black Lacquer in Black Vinyl is priced at £6.48, available online from ASDA – this was the cheapest I could find it.
