Swatch Off! Where Makeup.com’s three assistant beauty editors compare and contrast the latest and greatest palettes and collections in all the land. This week we played with the new L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Eyeliner Pencils — gel-like liners that seriously don’t budge. The collection includes six super-pigmented, waterproof colors that last for hours and hours. Here’s what our editors thought:
I love a good pencil liner, and I’m pretty picky about the ones that I smoke into my lower lash line, so to take a break from my beloved Urban Decay 24/7 liners is definitely asking a lot. However, I was wildly impressed with these Pro-Last Liners, not only because of their seriously non-budging pigmentation, but also because of their creamy consistency. They’re able to capture that UD wear I really love — but are different enough in pigment and texture to really hold their own in the eyeliner pencil world.
This is the pencil liner that will finally make me a pencil liner girl. Smooth, pigmented and — most importantly — waterproof, this pencil doesn’t move. Out of all the colors I played with, the nude shade captured my heart. I love taupey-beige colors on my waterline as opposed to a stark white pencil, so this one was a no brainer. My eyes can get pretty watery throughout the day, and my liner is usually gone by noon — but with the new Pro-Last liner I can pretty much set it and forget it.
