L’Oreal vs Mabelline – Which Eyeliner is Better?

I have a love hate relationship with eyeliner, it can either be perfect where you don’t want to take it off because it’ll never look like this again, or, it can be the biggest disaster ever! For me, theres literally no in between. So, I like to buy an eyeliner that has an easy application so, I don’t have to cry when doing my makeup. I love one of these products and I hate the other, the reasons will become clear later on. However, I do actually like products from both brands, just one of these just didn’t work out for me.

L’Oreal vs Maybelline – Which Eyeliner is Better?

Maybelline Master Ink Satin | Boots | £4.99

Hmm… this eyeliner is, well… not good. I did not like this eyeliner at all to put it nicely. The only good thing I can say about it, is that its completely black. Thats all, there is nothing else good to say. The bad points are, the applicator and the formula. Both are just bad. The problem I have with the applicator is, that it soaks up so much product and it goes literally everywhere on your eye. Its so hard to control when applying it. The formula is so runny, and it comes off during the day which is not the look I’m going for. I wouldn’t repurchase this, which is quite sad because, like I said I do like Maybelline, but, this product was a miss for me.

L’Oreal Super Liner Black Lacquer | Superdrug | £6.49

Now, this eyeliner is a weird one. I have never tried anything like this before, and I do really like it! At first I was unsure, because it dries so fast!! This was something what I wasn’t expecting, as I’m so use to having quite a while to apply it to my eye. Obviously the good thing with this is, it won’t smudge throughout the day as it dries completely matte. The applicator doesn’t get too wet so, it doesn’t run everywhere. I do have a hard time controlling it sometimes but, I think thats just done to me being bad at eyeliner haha. Another weird thing what I notice when I first took it off was it came off in clumps, to me this was so strange. But, this means that it doesn’t leave your eyes looking like panda when you take it off. I always get this when I take off my mascara and eyeliner and I hate it! I’m so glad this does not happen any more and I would much rather spend the extra £2 and get this eyeliner over the Maybelline one.

    nice post! I have a L’Oréal super liner but it’s more like a pen and it works nicely!

  • L’oreal sounds a bit like a similar eyeliner from MAC (can’t remember what it’s called, but it is also one of those liquid liners). I would love to try it!

  • This review was really helpful! Might try the L’Oreal one when my current eyeliner runs out x
