Maybelline Hypersharp Liner Laser Precision in Soft Black Applicator

Previously, Maybeline did the same eye liner and this eye liner is different from it as this promises great precision, ease of use, smudge-proof and easy to remove. As you can see here, the tip of the eye liner is sharp and it is made of synthetic bristles yet it felt soft by application.

The shade that I have in hand is soft black and from the swatch, it is quite a soft black color with tint of browns. The outcome reminds me of what we could get out of Japanese eye liners. They look pretty similar.

Maybelline Hypersharp Liner Laser Precision in Soft Black - Triple Winged Eye Lining With Big Eye Effect

I tend to play around with this eye liner since it gives a much more softer touch to the look and I could not hesitate to either double or triple eye lining. I did get compliments from my colleagues that this technique gives a very cute look to the eye makeup and I would to share how to achieve this look with a few simple steps.

  1. Line beginning from the inner corner of the eyes.
  2. Extend the line at the end as to create a wing.
  3. Draw another wing above the initial wing.
  4. Repeat the same step again above the second wing.
  5. Draw small triangles at the bottom lashes like so.
  6. Finish off with mascara and done!

Maybelline Hypersharp Liner Laser Precision in Soft Black - Traclyn Yeoh

It may seem dramatic on the closeup but because of the soft touch of the shade, it makes it less prominent and tend to blend in naturally once mascara is applied on both upper and bottom lashes.

Above all…

I like this eye liner! I could achieve real thin line with this eye liner plus I could fill in the gap in between lashes. The bristles of the eye liner brush felt soft and glides smoothly during the application. I have been using it for a week now and yet to experience any irritation. However, it does claim to be smudge-proof from weather and sweat but it can be rubbed off easily and there is a time I accidentally rubbed at the outer corner of my eyes. Oh yes, that is what happened and some part of the eye liner went missing. Nevertheless, this is still a good eyeliner and just got to be careful not to rub your eyes.

Price: MYR35.90

Availability: National leading pharmacies, selected departmental store and super/hyper markets

PROs:

  • Smooth application, glides easily
  • Thin and precision line
  • Does not irritate my eyes

CONs:

Easily rubbed off

My Rating: 4.9/5

Review: Maybelline The Colossal Kajal, Better Off As A Creamy Eye Liner

Kajal eye liner has been a trend and mimics the Indian eye which gives a dramatic eye makeup finish. Depend on how you would want to use it, instead of just eye lining, you could also smoke it up to create smokey eyes. I was introduced to try Maybelline The Colossal Kajal and yes, they are already on shelves!

Here’s a short commercial video before I go into my opinions on the eye liner.

Maybelline The Colossal Kajal

‘Specially formulated for eye and inner eye application. Colossal Kajal contains the deepest black pigments to intensify your eyes like hypnotic kajal trend that is taking the beauty scene by storm. Its exclusive color fix formula and unique tip ensure that you get a smooth black line in just one step. You don’t have to worry about smudges; Colossal Kajal is smudge-proof and waterproof up to 12 hours. It’s ingredients – olive esters, vitamin E, vitamin C derivatives and conditioning agents – are gentle on the eyes, preventing irritation or sensitivity.’

Maybelline The Colossal Kajal 2

Just like the Colossal Mascara, they have remained the signature bright yellow color and adopted it to this kajal blister packaging. It’s a rather simple packaging with only two shades of color of yellow and black.

Maybelline The Colossal Kajal Retractable

The eye liner is retractable and no sharpening needed at all. From here, we are able to see that the eye liner looks really dark and pigmented.

Maybelline The Colossal Kajal Swatch

While doing the swatch, I do notice that it glides easy across the back of my hand but it doesn’t seem as dark as how I was expecting it. Will see how it works when I applied it, it may be different.

Maybelline The Colossal Kajal Ingredients

From the ingredients listing, I could tell that it is free from alcohol and Paraben. Hurray!

Maybelline The Colossal Kajal Application

I prefer to use it on my waterline and it still glides smoothly upon application. However, I do find that one layer is not enough and there is a need to glide a few more times in order to make it look darker.

Maybelline The Colossal Kajal Look

This is the final look of my eye makeup, I did apply a little more on the outer corner of lower lash line and set it with a little eye shadow with hope that it could hold them up better.

Above all…

Though it is claimed as kajal, I do feel that they are more like just a creamy eye liner. I lost the excitement when I know that I need to layer during the application because I believe kajal does deliver real intense black pigments. This eye liner just didn’t do the justice as kajal.

With the promise that it could stay smudge-proof and water-proof for 12 hours, I was not convinced and it did smudge on me after more than 6 hours. The kajal was on my waterline earlier has moved to the lash line and seems to synchronized with the line that I draw on my outer lower lashes. The smudges goes down to the lash line that I had to do a clean up carefully. To work as a normal eye liner, this goes fine but to work as a kajal, I believe there is room for improvement.

  • Glides easily

Review: Maybelline Hyper Glossy Liquid Liner Goes On Smoothly With Precision and Affordable!

One can never enough of eye liners and that is including myself. This time I was searching through the shelves for an affordable eye liner at Guardian. A real quick pick-up to be used the next day and I found Maybelline Hyper Glossy Liquid Liner. It’s been a while since I have used eye liner from Maybelline and I was skeptical about this.

Maybelline Hyper Gloss Liquid Liner in Black
Ultra-glossy formula + Soft, flexible brush to give the glossiest, smudge-proof black line.

  • For eyes that shine with the glossiest lines:
  • Elongates your lash line to shape and define eyes like never before
  • Our soft, flexible brush allows you to go sleek or boldly chic
  • 24 hour vinyl film formula gives the glossiest, smudge-proof bold lines
  • No tugging, no dragging
  • Easy removal with warm water & does not stain eyelids
  • All-day wear up to 8 hours
  • Safe for sensitive eyes and ophthalmologist-tested
  • Contact lens safe

Maybelline Hyper Gloss Liquid Liner in Black 2

My current preference is to look for liquid eye liner, water-proof, precise application and easy to use. This Maybelline Hyper Glossy Liquid Liner pretty much fulfilled what I was looking for.

Maybelline Hyper Gloss Liquid Liner in Black Applicator

It comes in a long triangular tube weighing at 3grams. Though it looks like any typical liquid eyeliner, I didn’t bother much about it. I was very happy that it didn’t come with felt applicator. I do find that felt applicator doesn’t transfer the product well and the application may not be as smooth. Brushes like Maybelline Hyper Glossy Liquid Liner will be better as they are much easier to maneuver.

Maybelline Hyper Gloss Liquid Liner in Black Swatch

The shade I have picked is black and through the swatch, I fell in love with how precise this eye liner could go. The key to achieve such precise application is to scrape the liquid by the rim of the tube then apply and just pick more liquid from the rim if you need more. The brush is quite thin and could easily make the flick towards the end of the eye liner.

Maybelline Hyper Gloss Liquid Liner in Black Traclyn Yeoh

The eye liner finishes off glossy but it is not as ‘hyper’ glossy as from it’s name. Here you would be able to see how precise I could go with the eye liner and the application can be very clean without much fuss. The brush is indeed soft and didn’t irritate my skin. While applying the eye liner, it could go smoothly and dries pretty quickly.

Above all…

This eye liner has everything that I was looking for except for one. Though on it’s packaging it is stated that it is water-proof, this eye liner can be easily removed by water. Therefore, it isn’t as water-proof but having to say that they are smudge-proof, YES. I have not experience any smudging while having this eye liner on during the day or night. My quick grab was a wise expense and I can’t complain much because this eye liner was very affordable. I have been using this for 3 weeks and I did not experience any irritation. Definitely recommend this for any eye liner junkies!

Review: Get That Extra Black Eye Liner With L’Oreal Super Liner Blackbuster. Great Color Pay-Off & Intensively Bold

Most of us especially ladies in Malaysia, never miss their eye liners. Just when I needed an eye liner, L’Oréal  sent me their latest eye liner, L’Oréal Super Liner Blackbuster as a surprise! Thank you so much L’Oréal! I have already seen them on the shelves but yet to try it.

L'oreal Blackbuster Liner

“Superliner Blackbuster provides an ultra-easy gesture that helps you draw the perfect line all the time. Its grip and size give you a natural hold so you can draw on your eyes just like a marker pen. No more worries about having to start all over; with Superliner Blackbuster, you always get the look you desire. Its thicker-than-usual tip lets you create the ideal boldness in just one stroke! You no longer have to apply several layers to get that bold-eyeliner look. With Superliner Blackbuster, just one stroke and you’re good to go!” – L’oreal

This marker-like eye liner is formulated with Acrylates Copolymer which helps to make it last as long as 8 hours. Easy removal with just soap and water or makeup remover. While this eye liner can be very versatile in any occasion, L’Oréal recommends how we could possibly rock it with three different looks.

SUPER BOLD!

FOR ATTITUDE Make it thick and intense! Create a rocker-chick look with the Superliner Blackbuster. Get a thicker and more obvious effect that’s attention grabbing. Just line both top and bottom lash lines. Extend slightly at the corner of the eyes for a more intense look. Add on the thickness for an even more exaggerated look.

SUPER INTENSE!

FOR MODERN BEAUTY Give the bold-eyeliner look a fresh new take! Make it fashionable with notice-me flicks as well as thick and intense black lines. It’s sassy and modern.

SUPER SLEEK!

FOR GRAPHIC The look make-up artists everywhere are experimenting with. And so can you, with the multipurpose Superliner Blackbuster. With its smooth glide, you can create graphic lines for a bold catwalk-inspired look that’s perfect for a night out. Anything goes with the graphic look, and anything is possible with Superliner Blackbuster.

L'oreal Blackbuster Liner 2

This eye liner comes with only one shade which is  Extra Black and they also make themselves clear to be a marker eye liner. The applicator tip is not a strange sight as it looked just like a marker tip except that it’s softer and goes gentle on the eyelids. The size of this marker eye liner is at 11cm which I think its pocket friendly where you could bring it to anywhere you want.

L'oreal Blackbuster Liner  - Swatch

They kid you not about how intense their ink is. It is infused with ‘Black Ink’ formula which explains how crazily intense the black is with glossy finish. Although it is a marker tip, fine and thick lines can be created effortlessly on swatch.

L'oreal Blackbuster Liner - Before After

On a daily usage, I prefer to go with simple redefining on my eyes. Applying using this eye liner could be tricky as the marker tip is stiff but easy to maneuver. I find that this takes a longer time to apply because I needed to tilt to slant the eye liner position to get more product out of it fast hence, the line could result not as smooth. The chances of me to build thicker eye liner is high and having imbalance eye lining on both eyes. It also explains why we should go bold with this eye liner, you just want to create that graphic eyes effortlessly with the marker tip.

L'oreal Blackbuster Liner - Lasting Power 1

I wore this eye liner a couple of times and I have recorded the lasting power of this eye liner for a day. Worn it for more than 9 hours, the eye liner did not budge at all. Best part is that the eye liner did not fade at all, the intensity remained on how it was when I first applied it.

L'oreal Blackbuster Liner - Lasting Power 2

Along with the long lasting test, it did not smudge on my eyelid nor from it’s original state. The eye liner remained clean and neat as it was drawn on earlier of the day.  Below is the ingredients listing and I found there is alcohol, SLS and paraben for those who are concerned.

Ingredients: Aqua/Water, CI 77266[Nano]/Black 2, Acrylates Copolymer, Butylene Glycol, Sodium Lignosulfonate, Sodium Laureth-11 Carboxylate, Glycerin, Dipropylene Glycol, Propylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Alcohol, Polysorbate80, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Laureth-12 Sulfate, Methylparaben, Ethyparaben, Propylparaben, EDTA (FIL B158152/2)

Verdict?

I would say that this best to go for those who loves bold eye lining. It’s still suitable fine eye lining but it will take a little longer time and have to be very careful with it. It is very pigmented, great color pay-off and last without smudging for more than 9 hours on me. Do be careful for those who could tear easily because this is a non-waterproof formula, clearly because it can be remove easily with water and soap. I usually remove it with makeup remover or olive oil and I do not have any problems with it. As far as I’m using up till today, it doesn’t cause any irritation or dryness although it has alcohol content.
