There is just nothing like a good brown eyeliner. It’s like an ice-cold glass of tea (or in my case, a Diet Coke) on a hot day… it hits the spot when it’s done just right. I’ve had my share of brown eyeliner duds, so I was skeptical when I tried this one from L’Oreal.
Website description: The secret to its intensity is in the dark kajal formula. Used for centuries by women in India and other Eastern parts of the world, kajal is a richly intense black ingredient that delivers stunning definition. And with Voluminous® Smoldering Eyeliner’s unique conal tip, it glides on effortlessly for a dramatic, captivating eye look.
My thoughts: At first glance, the tip of this eyeliner was terrifying. It was very sharp, which made it easy to apply a thin line next to the lash line, but also made me think I was going to poke my eye out. With a careful hand, I got used to it. The sharp tip makes it easy to be precise, but you can also use the side of the liner to make a thicker, smokey (and safer) effect.
I originally started using this liner for the purpose of reviewing it, but I’ve found myself reaching for it as my go-to brown. It’s a short, thick pencil (it came with its own sharpener, bonus!). The formula is smooth and creamy, it works well on the lash line and the waterline. I get 8-9 hours wear time out of it.
