Just received this today and really bummed to open it up and have the lead just fall out. Completely dried up. Was looking forward to experimenting with this.

Dried out liners

By Beauty

from San Jose

Comments about L'Oréal Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner:

I bought more 5 of these in different colors and they were either dried out or coming off in clumps. I think these ones have discounted prices because they are old and dried out. Do not buy. Need to ask for a refund.

    Comments about L'Oréal Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner:

    I've been reading a lot of comments of people not being able to figure out how to sharpen the pencil. The gold band near the top is misleading. All it is is gold painted wood. Your pencil should sharpen just like any other eye pencil you own that you would need sharpening. I had to laugh at myself when I saw the tip getting more blunt and the twist mechanism at the bottom wasn't resulting in more eyeliner being twisted up, thinking I wasn't going to get a lot of use out of it. After a little experiment, I realized that the gold band is very sharpenable! Other than that, this is a great eyeliner that goes on silky and smooth!

      Comments about L'Oréal Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner:

      This is my favorite black eyeliner for tightlining and the waterline. I found that I was grabbing for it every morning over my Marc Jacobs and Makeup Forever one. Also, this one is just sharpened with a pencil sharpener and then it's fresh and ready to go. I just wish it was available in a dark brown color, too!

      Comments about L'Oréal Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner:

      When I first bought this eyeliner, I thought it should twist up. The available tip became small. I went to the drugstore and the make-up gal suggested it required a sharpener. Voila'! Problem solved!
      I LOVE how this goes on in a thick line, smoothly and easily. No pain of sharp pencil! And looks bold! The cobalt blue is vibrant! I have found the best eyeliner of my entire life!!

      amazing drugstore eyeliner

      By nalle

      from Lancaster, Ca

      Comments about L'Oréal Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner:

      reading the comments made me laugh because people could not figure out how to keep using it. some say they can't sharpen it, that they only got a few uses out of it, and that even the people at ULTA couldnt figures it out either. REALLY!! I have no problem sharpening it. at first I did think you had to twist but then I read and it does say it's a PENCIL and I am pretty sure you sharpen pencils. application is amazing and easy and for me it lasts a really long time. Will most definitely repurchase it.

        I returned the first pencil thinking it was defective. No one in the store could figure out how it should sharpen itself. The second one did the same thing. Now they will not let me return it again. I've only gotten three uses out of this pencil.

                This new generation of gel liners provides great color payoff but needs a gentle touch to sharpen successfully. For best results, insert the pencil into the sharpener no more than 1/4 of an inch. If you push the pencil too far into the sharpener, the blade will grab too much and become difficult to sharpen.
                The goal is to shave off the resin in a thin curl to reveal more liner. The pencil should be sharpened frequently so that 3 or 4 gentle turns are sufficient to achieve a perfectly tapered tip each time Replace sharpener when the blade has dulled and no longer sharpens smoothly

                Hi L! This eyeliner should be sharpened with a cosmetic sharpener like our L'Oréal Dual Sharpener. For best results, turn the pencil gently in the sharpener 3 or 4 times, being careful not to apply excess pressure. Hope this helps!

                Hi Lynn! For hazel eyes we would recommend using our Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner in the shade Green Envy. Olive, gold and brown tones will make hazel eyes pop. We hope this information was helpful!

              Once the point goes down to the bottom, how do you bring it back up? There's nothing that brings the point of the eyeliner back up again.

                A:

                Hello Carmela! Thank you for contacting us about your experience with Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner. Despite the plastic-coated appearance of the Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner, it can be sharpened with our L'Oréal Dual Sharpener. This pencil does not swivel. Turn the pencil gently in the sharpener 3 or 4 times, being careful not to apply excess pressure. After sharpening, remove all shavings from the blade edge. The pencil should be sharpened frequently so that 3 or 4 gentle turns are sufficient to achieve the desired result. The Dual Sharpener should be replaced whenever the blade has dulled and is no longer giving the expected results.
