L'Oreal Infallible Lacquer Liner 24H - Blackest Black and Navy

L'Oreal's Infallible Lacquer Liner ($9.95) was one the new launches from the brand back in summer. The liner comes in five shades with a glossy, lacquer-like finish. The colors seem to be very rich and pigmented with a slight sheen to them once dry.

L-R : Blackest Black, Navy

L-R : Navy, Blackest Black

Blackest Black  is a rich, dark glossy black and Navy is a blackened, dark blue. The glass jar packaging looks more expensive than it is and isn't overly heavy when compared to other gel liners. 'Blackest Black' is a really deep, jet black that I love on the lash line and waterline. 'Navy' looks almost identical to black in the jar but goes on a little more blue. On the eyes though, the difference is very subtle. The texture is super creamy, smooth and the formula is long-lasting. It is waterproof too and needs a good oil based remover to remove completely. There's also a pretty nice brush that comes with the liner. It isn't extremely precise for a thin line, but great for a thicker line that looks perfectly streak-free!

Top to Bottom : Blackest Black, Navy

Overall, I love the Lacquer Liner for the formula, the amazing color payoff and intensity. It starts smudging around the outer corners after about 7 hours - not quite 24 hours like L'Oreal claims. The formula seems a little wet initially, but does not budge once dry. I can't speak for the other colors in the line but, Blackest Black and Navy are both gorgeous and great basic colors to own!

Have you tried the L'Oreal Infallible Lacquer Liner?

  1. That blows about the smudging. :( I was curious when I heard about these months ago (I'm a real sucker for gel liners, even though I have a gazillion pots to use up), but I think I can hold off on trying them. I always like liners that are smudge-proof, since I have oily lids.

    1. It smudges after 7 hours so that's okay, maybe you can give it a try. The black is super intense too :D

  2. I have a maybelline gel liner at the moment and do like it, but it's the only gel liner I've tried so am open to trying a different one when it runs out. Would be interested to try a glossier one so may give these a go! xx
