Product Review: L'Oreal Infallible Lacquer Gel Liner

L'Oreal touts its Infallible Lacquer Gel Liner as a 24 hour formula that "glides on smoothly for a clean, precise line that keeps an intense high-shine finish that lasts from dawn to dusk." Just how well does this formula work and does it compete well with higher end products?

I've long been a fan of gel eyeliners and up to this point, had tried several drug store offerings (see here for a review) but had never found one that lived up to my Holy Grail product, Bobbi Brown's Gel Eyeliner. I saw the L'Oreal version in Target for $8.99 so I thought I'd try the black version.

This eyeliner comes in a pot with .081 oz of product and a separate brush for application. The brush is VERY similar to the Bobbi Brown $26 ultra fine eyeliner brush (here) and applies the product in a very precise, thin line. As advertised, this gel eyeliner glides smoothly onto the lid and sets fairly quickly. The pigment is a very deep black and defines beautifully.

I found that the L'Oreal Gel Eyeliner absolutely did not move, smudge or flake and lasted from early in the morning to when I removed it later in the evening. This is my new Holy Grail gel eyeliner and at $14.00 cheaper than my favorite Bobbi Brown, it's a great value.

L'Oreal's Infallible is available in the following shades:

  • Blackest Black
  • Bronze
  • Dark Slate
  • Espresso
  • Navy
