I was recently sent the gorgeous Line of Beauty collection(*) from L'Oreal to have a little play with and review and I have to say that over all I have been fairly impressed. In the collection you can buy the Blackbuster Super Liner which is a thick, felt tip style liner designed to create big, bold lines, the Perfect Slim Super Liner which is the same felt tip style liner however it is designed to create beautifully neat fine lines, the GelMatic Super Liner which has the precision of a pen liner with the intensity of a gel and finally the Super Liner Brow Artist which is a 2 in 1 brow pencil and sealing wax.
The range was designed to create bold, catwalk inspired looks, which are set to be a huge trend during autumn and winter and I can't fault it on that front. Combined, the set really does equip you to master the perfect liner looks with relatively little effort. I've been using the Blackbuster to line the eyelid and then using the Perfect Slim to create cat eye flicks and edge the lower lash line. I then finish the look using the GelMatic along the waterline which over all creates a beautifully elegant but bold eye that I love.
I was originally most excited about the Blackbuster liner having seen it advertised on the tv and until the set arrived I wasn't even aware that the was a brow product in the range however after spending some time using the whole collection, I have to say that the stand out product for me is actually the Gelmatic liner. I simply cannot fault it. The colour is intense and long lasting, the formula soft and creamy and I haven't found it to smudge of crease so for me it has been the perfect gel pencil and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
So all in all, a bit of a mixed bag for me, although I do stand by the collection being a good concept, and if it was sold as a set it would make a good gift.
The products are available nationwide, and are relatively low cost so I think they're all worth a try.
Perfect Slim £6.99
Brow Artist £5.49
