When this L’oreal liner caught my eye I knew I had to get it and put it up against my all time favorite liner, Stila Stay All Day. At first glance the packaging is very similar, a small black pen with a cap on the end. This is where the differences start. The cap for the L’oreal liner doesn’t have the satisfying strong “click” close. I can just see how fast this liner is going to dry up with a cap like that. Now, the grip on the L’oreal pen helps to level out the playing field again. I love how the grip allows for better control and lowers the risk of slip-ups.
On the the product inside the pen. The color is super black just like the Stila one. The finish is matte just like the Stila one. The ability to accomplish a cat eye is equal to that of the Stila liner. Again there similarities stop there. The formula is just not as long lasting. It doesn’t hold up all day, a single eye rub or scratch makes the liner flake off. That is a no-go for me right there. My liner has to last all day, just like the Stila liner says it does.
For now I will stick to my Stila Stay All Day Liquid Liner, but on days when my makeup doesn’t have to last all day I do find myself reaching for the L’oreal The Super Slim Liquid Liner instead just so I can get it off easier.
If you know of any amazing felt tip liners in the drugstore I should try and match up to the ultimate Stila liner let me know!
