L'oreal Gel Intenza Eyeliner

09 September 2014

When it comes to eyeliner believe me i am still novice at best, after years of using the liquid and felt tip liners i have pretty much got the jist of a basic line but still struggle with wings and cat-flicks. However in spite of this i had been wanting to give gel liner a go, yes it looks more difficult but i was interested to see how different it was to use.
I picked up the L'oreal Gel Intenza in black, inside the box you get the little pot of gel liner and a brush to apply it with. The brush is not really the sort of brush i would personally apply liner with in my opinion its a bit thick and completely the wrong shape, but i thought i would have a go with it anyway. Like i expected the brush is pretty useless if your after a nice slick line, i would not use the brush provided i found it very messy to use and in the end after my first attempt i just took a fluffy eyeshadow brush and blended the liner to create a smokey liner look as it was the only way to salvage the situation.  The next time i attempted to use it i use my own angled flat eyeliner brush to apply it, this worked a lot better and even though i found it slightly more tricky to apply than liquid liner i was still pretty impressed with the result, the colour is a very black black and it looked smooth and clean. You do have o be careful you don't smudge it as it does smudge very easily but once dried i was so impresses with how long it lasted, i tested it out on a day  had a thirteen hour shift and the liner was pretty much the only thing that lasted until i took my makeup off that night.
I do still need a bit of practice applying Gel liner but i do like how it looks, and I'm actually loving that you can smudge it out for a smokey look and i have been wearing it a lot like that lately, it just gives a bit of soft definition to the eyes grunges up the look.
I would recommend the L'oreal Gel Intenza liner, its a good colour, applies well and last forever, and although its £9.99 for a relatively small pot i've used it a fair bit and barely even dented the surface so as long as it doesn't dry out i can see this lasting me a while.

Have you tried the L'oreal Gel Intenza Eyeliner? What did you think?


  1. It's definitely fab value for money despite it looking small it last ageees, I had it before and unfortunately couldn't get a steady enough hand to use it :( Such a shame xxx

  2. I wish I was better at applying gel liner as it looks great when applied properly x


  3. I cant apply liner on my top lash line at all. I can only apply it on my waterline, and the gel liner from L'Oreal is really good.
