@maybelline is one of my fave drugstore brands! And I am a sucker for eyeliners so I was so excited when I saw this available in @zaloraph . I had high expectations from this liner since it says “hypermatte” plus Maybelline has always exceeded my expectations.
This eyeliner comes in a very cute, pure white container. The bottle is very sleek which definitely makes it travel friendly. It would be easy to just slip it into your smallest clutch. The bristles of the brush are soft and long which can be an advantage or disadvantage depending on what you are used to. I tried this product on a friend last night and I didn’t really have a hard time applying it. If you are used to pencil eye liners, you may need some practice on applying this because of its soft bristles. .
The color is amazingly black. It immediately appears after one swipe. Plus, it dries quickly. I swiped it three times because I wanted to see it darker and fuller. I really love the consistency of this liner. It is not runny and not too thick which is how I want my eyeliners. It is pigmented BUT I don’t believe it is hypermatte. It is more satin-ish than matte. It has a little sheen on it which I’m not a big fan of. It is indeed water proof, smudge proof and survived our entire shift. After 8-9 hours, it was still very black but do not rub it or scratch it because it peels off easily. It doesn’t smudge but it easily flakes off.
If you are looking for an ultimate favorite matte eyeliner, this isn’t it but I recommend this for those who love thin jet black eyeliners because the bristles are perfect for doing that! And the price is not that bad. Overall, a decent liquid liner. Not bad for Maybelline’s 1st attempt on Matte Finish Liquid Liner. You can purchase at any Maybelline stores in the malls or you can conveniently order it from #Zalora like what I did.
Hope this helps you! Let me know your thoughts on this or feel free to reach out if there are any products you want me to try for you. ❤️
