At a Glance:
Price: RM23.90 (approx. US$8)
Made in: China
Likes: Super easy to use, long lasting, cheap, easily available.
Gripes: Not really waterproof, flakes and smudges a little after awhile.
Pigmentation & Color:
This eyeliner comes in only black. I find that I have to go through the same area at least twice to get a nice opaque line.
The swatches below were achieved with 2 swipes:
Texture & Scent:
This eyeliner goes on liquid, but it dries really quickly. While it held up for the most part of the day, I find that it flakes on me after 5-6 hours or so. Though this is advertised as waterproof, some of it did come off after I've rubbed it with water:
This one doesn't really have a scent to it.
This eyeliner comes in pen-form with a cap. What I love most about it is its 0.05mm tip:
Being this thin, it gives me the option of drawing a super thin line, or use it angled for a thicker line (as seen in my swatch pic above). The tip is firm enough to ensure an even line all over :)
This eyeliner lasts all day on my eyelids, but I find that they start to flake after about 5-6 hours' wear.
Price & Availability:
This eyeliner goes for RM23.90 (US$8) and it's available at all Maybelline displayers at your nearest Watsons / Guardian / Supermarket! :D
Everyone seems to be raving about this product! So being the curious cat I that I am, naturally had to pick this up when it was on sale! :D
It didn't go too well for me the first time I tried this out. I think something flew into my eye and caused it to tear up a great deal. I had forgotten that I had this on, so I wiped my tears away with a piece of tissue, only to see bits and pieces of this eyeliner stuck there! >.<
Pictures (left is freshly applied, right is after teary episode):
As you can see, some of the liner came off after it came in contact with my tears + the tissue paper, so girls with teary eyes may want to stay away from this product.
Not deterred, I tried again the next day, and as my luck would have it, I got another teary episode again after an eyelash fell into my eye!! Arghhhh!! >.<
Oh well, just my luck. Thank God for the long holidays! So I tried yet again on the third day, and succeeded! lol! (You might have read about my little embarrassing episode on my Facebook page - now you know how much I love you all! T_T lol!).
Here's the result (left: freshly applied, right: 8 hours later):
Not too bad huh!! Though it did flake and smudge (just a little), it held up well in our humid weather! :D
In a nutshell, methinks that this is not too shabby! I might repurchase since this is so cheap and does the job, but I want to try out other products first :)
ps: if you're wondering how this compares to the Eyeko Graffiti Eyeliner Pen, I much prefer the latter because it is more pigmented and it stays on longer. Unfortunately I'm not able to provide side by side comparison pictures for you all because mind has dried up.
