L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Le Smoky Eyeliner – Review, Swatches, Price in India!
Hi everyone, today I am going to talk about eyeliner that is relatively new to the India but has been out for a while elsewhere. I am talking about the L’Oreal Paris Le Smoky eyeliner. It was released as a part of the L’Oreal Festive Fever collection. I tried it plenty of times to test it thoroughly before completely make my mind about it. Here is the detailed review of the L’Oreal Le Smoky eyeliner.
Product: L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Le Smoky Eyeliner – 201 Black Velour
Price: 650 INR | Buy Online
Claim: L’Oreal Makeup Designer Paris Color Riche Le Smoky Eyeliner comes in 6 beautiful wearable shades with a luxurious, intense formula combining oil and wax. Color Riche Le Smoky softly glides over the eyelid allowing you to achieve a long-lasting and intense colour result. The smudger lets you create the perfect smokey look. With a pencil on one end and a smudger on the other it has never been easier to create the perfectly smokey look.
L’Oreal Color Riche Le Smoky Eyeliner shades:
201 Black velour
202 Mystic Grey
204 Brown Fusion
207 Stormy Sea (Blue)
209 Antique Green
211 Purple Dream
L’Oreal le Smoky eyeliner comes in a two-sided black pencil packaging with eyeliner on one side and a stiff smudger on the other side. It has plastic lids protecting the pencil and the smudger. The pencil, therefore, looks longer than other eyeliners. I like the black body and gold print packaging of this eyeliner.
The pencil looks deep black in color but gives a medium black opaque finish. It is comparable to L’Oreal Paris Kajal Magique in pigmentation even though the color appears to be a closer match to the L’Oreal Paris Kajal Magique Bold. Both are black but the Kajal Magique is “less black” than L’Oreal Kajal Magique Bold.
It is not the creamiest eyeliner out there but slides like any average drugstore eyeliner. It is a mechanical pencil that you need to sharpen since it wears out fast. I have used it on my waterline, tightline as well as above my upper lashline and in all of the cases, I felt like it transferred a lot and smudged as well. By the end of the day, it vanished from many parts of my eye. Sigh!
The Le Smoky eyeliner looks best when it is freshly applied. It starts fading right away and never really sets. If you are planning to wear it all day long, you might have to reapply it every 3-4 hours. I have oily eyelids and water-y eyes so bear in mind that your experience might be slightly different than mine.
FOTD featuring L’Oreal Le Smoky Eyeliner:
Overall, I have tried so many eyeliners and feel like this one is nothing special. I actually really love the L’Oreal Kajal Magique Bold. The best part is that it is cheaper than the Le Smoky eyeliner. There are other shades (sin are listed on Nykaa) available in this range but I am not really considering trying them out. I would rather get a few shades of the L’Oreal Silkissime eyeliners.
