Winging It | L'Oreal Super Liner Perfect Slim

I've been on a quest to find the perfect felt tip liner. I've always been a fan of gel liner, but it's not the quickest or the most travel friendly. A couple of months ago I picked up the L'Oreal Super Liner Perfect Slim in Black and I must admit, I was pretty impressed. However there a few draw backs to consider before adding this to your shopping basket.

Firstly this has fantastic packaging, the lid is very secure so you don't have to worry about it falling off in the bottom of your makeup bag. The liner 'tip' is very thin, almost perfect. So you can get a nice point on the wing and even out your line easily without having to triple the size of your liner. 

However, after a month this just wasn't the same. As you can see from the photo it's not actually black, more like a dark grey. And across my lash line this is pretty much non existent, all that's left is a wonky wing. I have incredibly oily eyelids that are partially to blame. I always use a creamy concealer to even out my rather pink eyelids and then set everything with a translucent matte powder. But even that hasn't worked. Give it 10 minutes and this almost seems to melt away.

It's not all bad though, I still use this as a guideline before finishing off with a gel. Like I said, the tip is very fine and I like being able to map the flick out before filling everything in.

I've seen rave reviews from a lot of people. And don't get me wrong for the first few weeks this is fantastic. I loved it. But after that point it only went downhill from there. 

If I could afford to replace my eyeliner every single month then I guess I wouldn't mind. But when I'm trying to save for a deposit on a house this is the last thing I want to have to add to my shopping basket. 

What do you think about the L'Oreal Super Liner? Oily eyelid girls, help me out! Which liners should I be using?
