L'Oreal Superstar False Lash Mascara and Super Slim Eyelinerpetek, marec 11, 2016
Even I haven't missed the heavy advertisement campaign for the new Superstar mascara and eyeliner, and I always skip commercials when watching tv. Mascara is a two-part one and they've had such mascaras before, but I'm not sure if those had fibres or not. The eyeliner is already more innovative. It features a very interesting spear-like nib that is bendy.
False Lash Superstar Mascara
I won't beat around the bush - I intensely disliked this mascara from the start. It made my lashes look messy, not clumpy, but just every lash was going into its own direction. As a great majority of mascaras, it improved over the next weeks and it became a lot easier to deal with. But it's still a regular formula mascara that doesn't hold curl, so it's like it does nothing for me.
False Lash Superstar Mascara is made out of two parts: the white primer coat and the black mascara. The white primer tints the lashes white at first, but it dries a lot less intense shade. It gives a lot of volume, though it's difficult to see due to it being white. The brush of the primer part has a hourglass shape.
The black part feels thinner, but I can see the fibres on the brush, which actually has a different shape than white and it's a curved design. It doesn't feel like there are a ton of fibres inside, like at Asian mascaras, but they have fallen in my eyes a couple of times and it really wasn't pleasant. The black mascara part covers all the white bits on the lashes and makes them super black.
The finally effect is very volumising, truly the volume is very impressive especially when it's been opened for a few weeks, but the lashes aren't defined enough for my taste. Through the day it lasts well, I didn't get any smudging or flaking, but fibres did fall in my eyes, which made them water and then of course mascara did smudge. I tried the primer with a very defining regular formula mascara that has a plastic comb and it started to look a bit spidery, so I wasn't happy with the result.
Due to it being a regular formula, my lashes of course drop immediately with it and since it's such a lengthening and volumising mascara, my lashes keep hitting my glasses, occasionally making an actually scratchy noise. Seriously, am I the only one with this problem when I wear regular formulas? But what I'm very bothered by is that this mascara appears to be almost oily or something, since I need to clean my glasses ever 15 minutes when wearing this. Very annoying.
Since I find regular formulas unimpressive, I gave the mascara to other people to test. It did not receive a very enthusiastic response, I'm afraid. Still if you liked the previous versions, you might like this one as well, since I assume it's very similar.
This mascara costs 15.65 €.
Super Liner Superstar
They eyeliner is already more my cup of tea. I've tried tons felt tip eyeliners so far, these type of liners are some of my favourite makeup products and I currently have four new ones and two that are on their lasts legs, but this one has definitely the most unique tip I've ever tried.
It's shaped like a spade or spear and is one of the largest of the slim eyeliner versions I've seen. The clipped base makes the nib bendy, so it feels more comfortable to use than a regular stiff felt tip applicator. However, the whole applicator is quite big, so it's difficult to get a very thin line. Out of the four new ones I have, I like this shape best for creating flicks, but they aren't completely sharp.
Formula is the same as at their Perfect Slim version, which remains one of my favourites. It's black, smooth and lasts nicely on my normal lids, except the flicks disappear by the end of the day. It has a semi-matte finish, which I much prefer to the glossy Stila one.

It's not the cheapest, but also not the most expensive eyeliner, so it's still acceptably priced for me, but it also depends on how long the tip will stay saturated. I think that if I needed a new good eyeliner fast, this is the one I'd get in our drugstores. It's reliable, easy to use and available everywhere (we don't have the Perfect Slim one here, but that one would be my first choice if we did because of the smaller nib), so it would be my first choice, while Essence would be for a cheap option and Artdeco for a splurge, since I love the applicator on that one.
Eyeliner costs 10.19 €
Have a great day!
*both products were sent to me, but I would get the eyeliner myself, since I love trying such products.
