L'Oreal Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner

No comments :
I have had this liner for a long time and totally forgot about it -I didn't even start using it until last week! It's about the size of your average "jumbo pencil" product and I really like that it comes with a jumbo sharpener - you can never have too many of those. I think this was around $10 and I gotta say, it definitely isn't worth that much.
As you can see it comes very sharp but I'm sure once I wear it down more it will be less scary to put on my eye! 

I was hoping for a more creamy, blacker liner. As you can see, it's not the darkest it could be. And it's not as smooth as I expected - it has a drier, harder texture to it. I found that I really don't like it as an upper or lower lashline liner, but it is REALLY nice for the waterline. For some reason, it shows up blacker there (maybe the moisture helps?) and has really good staying power. 
It is hard to find a liner that lasts all day on my waterline, especially this time of year when my eyes like to get all watery every time I go outside (stupid allergies!) and while I won't say I can go a whole 12 hour day without touch-ups, it will still be there at the end of the day. Faded, but still there. So that is saying something for it. 

I like when I dislike a product at first and then find a way to make it work - makes me feel like it wasn't a total waste!
