L'Oreal Superliner Superstar Eyeliner review & photos!

I am mortally afraid of eyeliner.  Ah no, not really.  But it's not something I'd generally do when I'm heading out after spending ages with eyeshadows because every single time I'm on the clock and need to be ready to run out the door and have blended five different eyeshadows perfectly and am really happy with the result, I mess it up with a liner.  It's a given.  And so I generally just keep the liner for when I'm filming.  Or sitting in my office in my pyjamas and hun bun/hun hole.

Not anymore.

L'Oreal's Superliner Superstar Eyeliner is by far the best liner I've tried in years and what's more, it's a felt tip liner!

I've never been a fan of felt tip liners in the past because I found they always bled into tiny little creases on my skin immediately after application, but this doesn't and my crepey eyelids thank it.  The long flexible tip makes application really easy and that's coming from someone who knows a thing or two (or five) about messy application.  I use the pointed end to create a really fine line on the inner half of the eyelid, something that's crucial for someone with a hooded eye like me, and then I use the whole side of the tip to create my wing and fill it in.

Pressing lightly on the tip will give a thin line and if you haven't figured it out yet, pressing harder will give a thicker line as demonstrated by my illustration below which might be my next tattoo!  Or not.  But you can see the intense pigmentation and the lack of bleeding into any lines and that's half the battle won for me.

For fans of a more subtle winged look, get a load of my photos below.  This genuinely took me all of five minute to do both eyes and that was with extra faffing about for photos.  It was so easy to use and I had no tidying up to do to make the pointed flick.  The tip did all the work for me.

A subtle winged look like this calls for a red lip and I teamed the liner with Blake's Red from L'Oreal's True Red Collection, named after Blake Lively and I'd say I am the spit of her here.

Now for fans of the more dramatic look, a thick line is easily done by building upon what we created above.  To prevent any tugging on the lid, I like to lie the liner on it's side, right on my skin to create the shape I want and then fill it in with the tip.  I absolutely love the cat eye look below and am dying to wear it out this weekend!  Or tomorrow when I'm lying on the couch watching the Bake Off with a cuppa.

If you're following me on Snapchat, you'll know that I've used this a good few times over the last week and have fallen in love with it.  Yes, I had a wobble one day where I couldn't get the placement for the wing right, then would remove it, and put it in the exact same place again.  I totally did this about four times but that was my fault and not the liner's!

For €10.49, you need to check this out if you're a newbie to liners or are a pro.  I have become very amazing at doing winged liner and have gotten it right nearly every single time!  Usually I'd luck out one time and go back to being rubbish after that, but this is The One.  It makes me good at lining my eyes!

Have you tried this yet and do tell me about your lining expertise!
