Today, I have a review & swatches of the L’oreal 24-Hour Infallible Gel Lacquer Liner in the gorgeous shade Dark Slate. Although the L’oreal gel liners are on the expensive side for a drugstore products – around $10 – they’re worth it to me. They have a thinner texture than most other gel liners I’ve tried, which makes them easier to work with overall and especially helps in creating a sharp, precise line. I also really like the included brush (I would buy it separately). See this post for more brush photos.
Dark Slate is an interesting and lovely color. When I think slate, I think blue-gray, but this is more of a dark taupe or brown-grey to my eye. Applied heavily, it’s quite dark and more grey – applied lightly, it’s much more brown. I’ve been loving using it more heavily on my upper lashline and more lightly on my lower lashline; it’s softer than black, but still defines very well. If I have just a touch of product on my brush, I can also use it in my brows.
L’oreal Gel Liners last all day on me without smearing or flaking. They do set relatively quickly, so once applied, you don’t have much time to play around and smudge the liners. The flipside of that, of course, is that you’re less likely to accidentally smear the line while it dries.
Great formula and great color – highly recommended!
