Every season, the beauty brand L’Oréal Paris, the official partner of the Cannes Film Festival, used to unveil a makeup collection in celebration of the event. This year’s new launch was their “Infallible” range. This range consists of foundation, concealer, powder, lipsticks, lip glosses, eye pencils, and nail paints. Indeed, this is a good makeup collection and is helluva priced! Their colored eye pencils named “Silkissime Eyeliner” seemed interesting, and I picked the shade “Silver.”

My Experience with L’Oréal Paris Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner, Silver
Packaging: This eyeliner comes in a pencil form and has a beautiful color-coded packaging. It has a transparent cap and a gold band on the top. It is neatly packed in a cardboard, which contains all the necessary information, including the ingredients list. The details printed in gold against the silver pencil looks classy. It is quite nice, sturdy, and travel friendly.
Texture: The texture of this eyeliner is very soft and smooth and glides on so effortlessly on the eyelids. The pigmentation is excellent. There is absolutely no tugging or pulling. Just one swipe is enough to get an intense silver color. After application, it sets to a semi-matte finish and becomes smudge-proof. It is not very creamy though. If you want to blend it to soften the line or smoke it out, it is quite impossible.
Color: “Silver” is a beautiful metallic silver shade. This shade is loaded with silver shimmers. But the shimmers are not overpowering. The color is very vibrant and rich and defines the eyes very well. It is a beautiful shade for sure.
Performance: This eyeliner is definitely a special-occasion/party wear liner. It has the best formula, and the overall quality is just great. This shade can convert any look to a gorgeous makeup. It has a super smooth creamy texture, which glides like a dream. Because of its super soft texture, the tip breaks off or melts down easily, and it needs to be sharpened frequently, which leads to a lot of wastage. This is the only downside so far for me. A feather-touch application gives the best result. It gives a flawless silky finish, which looks perfect on the eyes. It has a perfect shiny semi-matte finish, and it is totally a smudge-proof and waterproof liner. It does not transfer on the lids and never messes up. It never feels dry, flaky, or patchy even with layering. It dries out so quickly on the eyes and quite hard to blend. I have not tried it as kohl as it has glitters in it. Although I did not test L’Oréal’s claim of 16-hour wear time, it definitely stays really long on the eyes. To be precise, it stays on until you remove it. It does not fade and keeps your eyes perfect throughout the day. It has an amazing quality and staying power. It can even survive a super hot humid summer day without a single mess. It is quite easy to remove even with a makeup remover wipe. Overall, I could call it as the best colored eyeliner currently in the market.
