I have a thing for eye liners specially black so I am usually on the lookout for something worth buying.Recently I saw this pencil by Maybelline and the testing at the counter made me want it badly.So here it is.Lets see what it is like.Maybelline is one of my favourite drugstore brands.
WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT IT:
Winner of Best Eyeliner at the Cosmpolitan Beauty Awards 2012.
Add some drama to your eyes with Maybelline New York Master Drama Khol Liner in ultra black.
Cream technology, smooth glide, colour intensity.
16 hour hold.
WHAT I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT IT:
Before I came across this kohl pencil I was using Scandal Eyes by Rimmel.I loved it until suddenly it turned dry.I love something that is intense and creamy.This is the current answer to my demands.It glides smoothly on the skin.Its very creamy in texture and the pigmentation is the best.I am currently wearing it on my waterline but I have tried it on both my upper lid and lashline as well.It does work well as a kajal and an eyeliner both.
It claims 16 Hours hold.To be honest I havent tried it for that long period until now.But it stays there without budging for a usual night out or day out for good 7-8 hours.I have had no irritation using it.I love its easy application.You really don't need to be a professional to use this pencil.Its such an easy task to create kohl rimmed eyes with this liner due to its soft tip.
Here are some swatches
The upper one is single swatched while the lower one is double swatched.
Can you not go gaga at this amount of pigmentation.I am just loving it.
Oh I forgot to mention its also great for tightlining your eyes.Its a multi functional kohl pencil.Just keep it in your make up pouch and forget about any other extra eyeliners.It can work as your kajal,your eye liner hence an amazing product.
Its also waterproof.I washed my face when I returned back.It didnt come off until I took it off with a makeup remover.
Here are my eyes tightlined with Master Drama,one stroke on the lower lash line and upper eye lid as well.
I have used Bourjois Counter Clubbing Bleu Neon underneath it.
Look at the tightlining effect!
The only thing that I don't like about it is that this kohl liner has to be sharpened after a couple of applications.
I have tried to sharpen it with my Stageline sharpener but this was the only good end result I could achieve.
I guess I need a new sharpener now!
The good thing about it is that it didn't trandsfer on my oily upper eye lids as the Colossal kajal used to.I am happy with this liner and most probably will buy it again.
I bought it for Rs.750 at Al Fateh Centaurus Mall Islamabad.
You can buy this at any Maybelline Counter or order it online at J4G.
Have you used this or any other Maybelline pencils?
Thanks a lot for stopping by.
