Review: L’Oreal Silkissime Eyeliner in True Teal

Teal eyeliner is one of my favorite makeup products ever. Whenever I try out a new cosmetics brand and want to test out an eyeliner, I go for either dark brown or teal.

I heard some positive things about Silkissime, so I bought one during a sale at Rite Aid.

It comes in the usual slim L’Oreal packaging. Neat and nice.

The eyeliner pencil is stamped with gold lettering. I think it looks very pretty against the teal shade.

The color is a very brilliant shade of peacock-blue. It’s more of a bluish teal than a greenish teal.

Hope you enjoy my squiggly design. They say I can be the next Picasso, ya know. 😛

This wore well on me for about 6 hours. It smeared a little by the 6th hour but the results weren’t so bad. I had an easy time with application: the product is creamy, glides on well, doesn’t tug or pull, and delivers rich, intense color without repeated attempts to increase visibility.

This is a “sharpen me, please” kind of pencil. Not the twist-up kind. It’s easy to sharpen and doesn’t splinter or crack as you sharpen (the way some pencils do, because they are so uncooperative).

Pros: Great pigmentation, easy application, affordable and available in most drugstores, beautiful shade.
Cons: Didn’t last more than 6 hours.

Grade: A

  4. What a beautiful blue-teal shade. I think I have this same pencil in a pinkish highlight shade. I might have to dig it out!

  5. If an eyeliner so prett stays for 6 hrs on me..I would totally get it 😀

  6. That one stays put on me all day, but then again I rarely wear my makeup more than 8, maximum 10 hours. I have the black one, the only downside I have is that it really need to be sharpened quite frequently.

    This is a pretty color 🙂 more on the blue side. This one is shimmery too. I think the matte ones last longer.
