Review of Maybelline Master Graphic

On to my eyeliner number two of the three liners I purchased: Maybelline Master Graphic:

“Liquid marker eyeliner for a bold graphic look”

Application: I bought this liquid liner because of the unique marker pen-like tip. The tip is hard enough to make it easy to apply a line which also makes it more difficult to make a wing. When I was finished, it looked quite ok.

Pigmentation: When it comes to pigmentation, unfortunately, this thing is a disappointment for me. I had to go over this line several times to build up a solid line:

Longevity: It doesn’t claim to be waterproof or anything, and my eyes do water a lot. By the end of the day, my liners were gone 😦 At least, it didn’t smear or smudge. It just kind of disappeared. This might be good enough for those of you that can “keep a liner” on the eyes. This is me by the end of the day:

Removing the liner: As I didn’t have much left on my lids, I barely removed any of it. But I can imagine that it is very easy to remove.

Final verdict: Definitely not a liner that can last on my lids, and the pigmentation is just not good enough. I wouldn’t repurchase it. However, if you’re a beginner, this might actually be a good liquid liner to start off with even it looks a bit chunky and scary.

See my previous post on Maybelline Maybelline Master Ink Matte here.

The next liner I will review will be Maybelline Master Duo.

Until next time!

Eyeko skinny liquid eyeliner

I just got this eyeliner in, and want to share my quick thoughts with you.

Looking at the big brush you would think that it makes huge lines, but it is actually very easy to control whether you want a thin or thicker line.

One thing I want to really agree with them is that it’s definitely foolproof. It can be a little difficult with liquid liners for beginners, but this one is really good for that. The brush is soft enough to go on smoothly, and hard enough for better control. It doesn’t distribute too much product which makes it easy to make a precise (winged) line.

On the downside; because not a lot of product is coming out, I like to go over with another liquid liner to fill the liner in with more intensity. But for outlining; this is really good. It’s also not waterproof, and my eyes water a lot. However, it is pretty smudge-and budge-proof as it says on the packaging.

This was 16.90USD, and is available in black, brown, navy and purple. Mine is obviously black 🙂 I bought mine on beautybay.com.

I think this is okay for the price. Would maybe need to try it out for a little longer to tell whether I would repurchase.

Update: forgot I actually took pictures with this liner on:

My liquid pen liners

Hey there

I wanna do a review of the few pen liquid liners I’ve got. I also have other liquid liners, but not formed as a pen, but I’ll do them another day.

From left to right:

1. L’Oreal Super Liner Ultra Sharp

2. Maybelline HyperSharp Liner

3. Dolly Wink Liquid Liner

4. Kiss Heroine make smooth liquid eyeliner

5. At the bottom – Maybelline Impact express smooth felt liner

As you can see, the swatches don’t really show any big difference, but I’ll go through them with what I think.

1. The L’Oreal liner: When I got this at first, I was a little disappointed by its pigmentation. After a few times of use, I’ve actually become quite fond of it. I just go over a few times, and the pigmentation problem is solved. It’s easy to apply with, and has a decent staying power. I would recommend this.

2. Maybelline Hypersharp Liner: This one is my favourite liners. I made another post on it here, explaining why.

3. Dolly Wink: I honestly don’t know what the hype’s all about. It’s not a bad liner, but it just underperforms a little. It bleeds out a little, the pigmentation is average and the staying power is only ok. I would say that there are better liners out there for the price.

4. Kiss me liner: At first, I really liked this liner. But I don’t know why that it began to bleed out during application. It does go on pretty black though. Staying power is okay. I will not buy this again.

5. Maybelline Impact Express: Simply horrible. The pigmentation is bad, application not very smooth, staying power horrible. I do not recommend this one.

So here are a very quick review of my pen liquid liners. I think the next one I want to try out is the Shu Uemura liquid liner.

What’s your favourite?

 

Maybelline HyperSharp Liner

I love Maybelline’s HyperSharp Liner, and this is how much I love it:

2013-09-09 17.13.03

I bought my first one a long time ago, and have used it up, so I bought a new one. Unfortunately, I had it in my makeup bag, and the cap accidentally fell off for me to find it all dried up. I have tried to turn it upside down for a few weeks to see if I could save it – I couldn’t. So I just bought a brand new one. I will take really good care of it and make sure the cap doesn’t get off 🙂

Let me list what I like about this liner:

– It’s waterproof and smudge-proof!! This thing won’t budge!

–  It’s the kind of handy liquid liner formed as a pen. Easy to use and easy to carry around.

– The black is very black.

– You can make a really thin line, but can also build it up easily.

It doesn’t bleed out. I know this sounds weird, but I’ve seen liquid liners that are too liquidy that it kind of bleeds out. Horrible.

Easy to remove with a makeup remover for waterproof makeup :p

I have tried a few liquid liner pens by now, and this one is by far my favourite.

What is yours?
