L'Oreal Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner

"Holy cow, what is this? It's huge! ", asks my overly inquisitive cashier at Target. 
It's short. It's fat. It's completely gorgeous!  L'Oreal has hit the mark with their Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner!

I first discovered this product when doing the makeup of a beautiful, successful, middle eastern woman. When we got to the liner she insisted on using and applying her own because she was VERY particular about it and "never lets anyone do her liner".  I am am not one to argue, and have learned that sometimes people have routines that are not to be disturbed.  So, she whips this out of her purse and in seconds draws this perfect jet black, smooth, sexy cat eye.  I had to try it for myself, and recently picked it up.

The pencil is a dark kajal formula that is used in India and other eastern parts of the world.  Kajal means eyeliner in Hindi, and is associated with the intense black pigmented liner.

It glides on the upper lash line with ease.  It's super soft, so on my first application I had a little difficulty with control and keeping a thinner line, but it just takes some getting used to.  It's a beautiful deep black color.  It stays put other than a little smudging in the very outer corner of my eye from watering.  It works well in the waterline, but will automatically transfer color to the bottom waterline when you apply it to the top. Setting with black shadow is recommended.  It even comes with a bonus sharpener to help keep the tip's conal shape.

Overall, this is a great black liner and it's only $8.95!  A must try!
