L’Oreal Paris Silkissime Eyeliner in Black is My New Favourite | Photos, Swatches, Review

Meet my new favourite black eyeliner. L’Oreal Paris Silkissime Eyeliner in Black ($11.99 CAD/$8.99 US). This is one of the blackest, most pigmented, most long lasting, aaaannnnd budge proof eyeliners I have ever tried.

This is a VERY soft formula. This actually makes it pretty tricky to apply a fine line to your upper lash line so I apply it with a brush if I want a precise wing or line. (I just dip swipe my liner brush on the tip of the eyeliner). Tightlining the upper lash line is a breeze as the pigment is so intense and the soft formula works it’s way in between your lashes.


This formula reminds me of the Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Acqua Collection Waterproof Liner. It was the most incredible eyeliner I had ever tried but the soft formula meant I was burning through it at an alarming rate. With the Armani price tag I couldn’t handle it. This L’Oreal Silkissime Eyeliner is just as incredible as the Armani version at a third the price. With the more affordable price this is a liner I will not be without!

Behold the uber blackness of L’Oreal Silkissime! That is one single swipe people!


The L’Oreal Paris Silkissime Eyeliners are hitting stores this month in Canada. I was delighted to notice while compiling this review that it also comes in Plum and Petal. I had better get my hands on those shades STAT!

    I went through my Armani quickly and since Armani is a L’Oreal company that means this is going to be very similar! Good news.

    Woooooooooooow. That is insane. That is one of the blackest pencil swatches I’ve seen from a drugstore brand. I also do that liner brush swipe technique with my Jordana Made to Last Eyeshadow Pencils. This would be GREAT for smokey eyes. Gonna add it to my wish list!

      Yes it last’s very well on the waterline. I love too that when I tight line my upper waterline it doesn’t migrate to my lower one.
