L'Oréal's Super Liner GelMatic in Taupe Grey

L'Oréal has recently launched their new Super Liner GelMatic formula, and I've been testing out the shade Taupe Grey* ($11.99 CAD)! This formula is meant to combine the easy of a pencil liner with the pigmentation of a gel liner, and it is also waterproof.

L'Oréal's Super Liner GelMatics come packaged in retractable tubes. The end is colour coordinated, so if you own multiple colours it would make it super easy to find the right shade in the morning. After one or two uses the tip does get a bit flat and dull, and there's no easy way to get a nice sharp point again. So I haven't been getting crazy with drawing on wings with this liner. I've just been using it to liner my upper lash line, lower lash line, and I've also tightlined with it.

This formula is smooth and easy to work with - no tugging here! I have to admit that the shade Taupe Grey isn't as pigmented as I was expecting from a gel-like formula. I get a full 12 hours of wear from this formula before the colour starts to fade. I haven't had any issues with smudging or flaking throughout the day. The colour works really well on my lower lash line, but it doesn't pop when used over top of shadows on the upper lash line. The grey shade got a bit lost against the purple shadows that I was wearing in the pictures above.

L'Oréal's Super Liner GelMatic in Taupe Grey has some positives and some negatives to it. I love the creamy formula, but I do wish that it was a bit more pigmented and that the tip was a bit finer. I think I'll keep using this on my lower lash line, but I'll stick to my more pigmented liners for my upper lash line! Have you checked out L'Oréal's new Super Liner GelMatics yet?

  2. 12 hours of wear? that's pretty impressive. To date I have yet to find a liner that I can use on my waterline, EVERYTHING smudges!!

    1. I know, I was super impressed! But my lids aren't very oily, so I'm not sure how it would hold up on your eyes!
