L'oreal HIP Cream Eyeliner







I'm glad Walgreens was having their BOGO free on L'oreal Hip products or else I would've never bought these. They usually retail for about $12 each and I would've just bought MAC fluidlines instead, but these were on sale! So I got them for about $6 each and they are SO WORTH IT! I love the brown one! The brown one is more matte whereas the teal is a bit more shimmery. I think I'm going to go back and buy the blue one along with a paint or something since I've been wanting to try those out too...

These definitely hold up to fluidline standards. They are very water resistant. I tried running the swatches on my hand under water and even rubbing them with my fingers and they stayed on pretty well. They didn't smudge or anything, but the color did fade a little and the brown held on better than the teal.

Overall, I'd definitely buy these again, but I'd have to wait for another BOGO free sale.

It is so funny, i was at target 10 minutes ago, looking at the very same products. They were not on sale though so i passed!
there is also this eyeshadow flare (half orange and half beige-gold), almost got it then i was like..hmm..i dont' really need it..

the cream eyeliners are so pretty though especially the teal one

oo Nice. I don't think I will be getting the brown one since it looks similar to my Jane's Be Pure Mineral gel liner in brown. I'm thinking of getting black since I don't have a black gel liner yet. =]

I have these in teal, navy, black, and purple... lol~ :X The only one I didn't get is brown. I hardly wear brown eyeliner so I didn't think it was worth it. Did you notice the teal one is drier in consistency than any of the other colors? I wouldn't buy teal again, because eventually it dries out... eek~ :X

I really wanna see these green eyeliner on you. It's very pretty color. Alyssa, I didn't know that you own that many eyeliner. You both should do eyemakeup with this and post it :D I will be waiting *wink*

you should get the jane be pure liners in black and navy! i think they're having a bogo for them too right now, but i could be wrong or it could have passed. :P hehe. i actually ended up getting some l'oreal hip liners because they were BOGO on ulta.com so i got the purple and teal... the purple was eh. actually... jane's purple was nicer believe it or not. LOL! the teal is pretty though! :)

Oh, I like those liners alot. I have them in eggplant & navy blue. The blue has a drier consistency, but I still like the finished look. Oh, and i'd definately recommend the paints as well. They make for WONDERFUL bases. My eyeshadow doesn't crease whatsoever when I wear it.

really?! My fam was planning to go in July too, but then my mom was lucky and got her vacation leave this month. I think L.A. would be really hot in July. It was hot when I was there, but only 1 or 2 days were extreme hot, compared to the bay area. lol.

Oh I was debating on whether to get the Jane be pure liners or these and I settled with be pure. Got them on bogo though, so super excited about that! LOL
