L’Oreal Paris released a range of makeup products for the 2014 Cannes Festival, one of them being the Super Liner Gelmatic Pen eyeliners. There are 6 shades in this range available in India and I picked up the shade Glamour Gold. I was expecting it to be my go to gold liner for special occasions to be used for inner corner of my eyes to brighten them up or Read on to find out my review!

There 6 shades in the Superliner Gelmatic Pen range:
– In the swatches above I have shown the pigmentation in one swipe (on the right) and the shade built after 3 swipes (on the left).
L’Oreal Paris Superliner Gelmatic Pen is gel liner in Pen form. The packaging is pretty sleek; each gelmatic pen eyeliner comes in a retractable black pen form with color co-ordinated bands at the bottom. The glamour gold shade comes off as antique gold.
I picked up Glamour Gold because I love metallic shades for my lower lashline and the inner corner of my eyes. I think these two shades, instead of white, add a lot of glamour to an eye look. The Silver Mania shade was out of stock so gold was the obvious choice. I was expecting a good pigmentation and staying power. I was disappointed on both fronts!
I have tried using this eyeliner on my upper lashline and lower lashline and I feel that it lasted better on my upper lashline. I have seen it disappear within 2-3 hours on my lower lashline. The problem does not end here since pigmentation is also a concern. One swipe does not give enough pigmentation. And since this is an eyeliner (and not a lipstick), I do not like rubbing it on my delicate eye area for it to show up well. The color, once build up looks beautiful and will work for all skintones!
I have used this eyeliner to create the makeup look (pic above) and will be doing a step-by-step tutorial post on how to recreate this look! Stay tuned for that.
I like using this shade to add a subtle hint of gold shimmer to my eye looks. I would have liked it to be more pigmented and last longer. I have created a few looks with this eyeliner that I really like, one of them I have shared in this post. The shade is beautiful but the formula has a room for improvement. I still like this antique gold shade since I am not a huge fan of yellow-y gold shades in eyeliners.
