Maybelline New York Hyper Sharp Liner - Review

I am feeling really dull these days. I feel like wearing an invisible cloak for a few days. But as some wise men said, this too shall pass. L To cheer myself up I have placed an order with the Forever 21’s newly launched online site and with jabong (few NYX eyeshadows and liners). Let me see if they do their job well in lifting my spirits.

Now on to today’s post. I wanted a nice felt tip liner for lining my eyes. I have tried couple of them before from various brands and they never caught my fancy well enough to keep me repurchasing. When I saw this liner from Maybelline, I was like “why not” and picked it up.

It comes in a functional pen type packing with a cheap looking golden cap. It looks too yellow to look classy or pretty.  Any way, it serves its purpose and fits tight.

The thing I loved about this pen is its applicator. It is more brush like but stiffer. Even after two-three weeks of regular use, the applicator has not lost its shape in anyway and remains as good as new unlike the conventional felt tip ones which tends to lose its shape over time.

They are flexible enough to draw a flick without much discomfort and stiff enough to get a seamless line. 

I do not have problem using liquid liners but for a beginner I am sure this one will be very comfortable to use.

The pigmentation is also very good. No watery lines. It imparts rich glossy black color even in a single swipe. However in order to perfect the line drawn, I prefer to go over the flick once more.

Staying power is quite impressive. It stays put all day long. It is water resistant and smudge-proof. Removal is not a pain either as it comes off easily when removed with coconut oil.

It is priced at Rs. 425/- and I paid Rs. 375/- and got it from an online store. I’d say this eyeliner is really unique and extremely comfortable.

Grab one with your eyes closed.
