Enhance your gorgeous eyes with Maybelline The Colossal Eyeliner

By Tarry

Hello everyone...  
Before starting off, let's just pray for a minute for those who lost their loved ones in the earthquake that shook us all this weekend. More than thousands of people died and even much higher were injured. So many lost their everything.... :-(

But on a positive note, life has to restart. And with our faith intact, everyone must take that step towards starting again. 

Anyhoo, lets move to today's product. Well, I am a pucca kajal girl when it comes to everyday makeup. In the morning, I get ready in such a rush that I hardly have time to use liquid eyeliners or their gel sisters. And pencil eyeliners always don't give that precise thin line. 

I was planning to buy pen liner as I had heard some good reviews about them when suddenly, a new one comes into the market. After a decent wait, I finally get my hands it and now, it seems to be a part of my life. 

Before I go on and on about it, raise a toast for the

 On the Outside
Just like many pen eye liners available in the market, this one too has a basic black body. The cap is quite sturdy and doesn't open easily. Thus, a very travel friendly packaging indeed. What makes this packaging quite attractive is the yellow lettering on the black pen, which makes it classy as well.

On the Inside
Aha! this is where Maybelline The Colossal Liner scores pretty well. The felt tip is amazing and gives you such ease without pulling, tugging or much pressure. The tip does give right amount of liner to ensure that even one swipe does a decent job. The liner is dark, richly pigmented and dries to a semi matte finish. Since the tip is long and thin, making winged eyeliners or small flicks with this pen is like a dream. In nice weather conditions, this stays decently on till 7 to 8 hours without fading. However, this is not waterproof and if you wash your face well, this does come off at several places. Also, those with hooded eyes may not like to wear it on humid days as it then sticks to the upper part of the lashes.

 Thumbs down for
-  Is not waterproof, but water resistant.
- Expensive, as the waterproof Hypersharp from Maybelline is also at the same price. Had it been under INR 350, it would have been better.

Now here are some eye swatches. I just used the liner over a khaki green eye pencil as a base to add some depth.

I love how this eyeliner gives a semi matte finish, which looks natural and does not look too glossy for everyday wear.

4.8 out of 5.  

And here's how the liner looks on me.

PEL SHOUTS
The Maybelline The Colossal Eyeliner is a wonderful option for those who want to quickly line their eyes everyday and even want to create wings in a jiffy.It is a good buy for those who like semi matte finish of the liner and a very fine tip. Wish Maybelline also launches a waterproof version for this one, just like their hypercurl or colossal mascaras.
