Maybelline has been up with new products one after the other since last few months and Maybelline Hyper Matte Eyeliner is one of those! I surely couldn’t afford to give it a miss as I wear a matte black liner almost everyday to work.
Prior this I have used Maybelline Gel Liner, Maybelline Collosal Liner, Lakme Shine lineLiner. All in matte black.
Lakme Shine Line Liner was a disappointment! It cracked a lot at the inner 1/4th corner of the eye and ended up looking messy and too dry! Since then I was just taken aback by liquid eye-liners…
Maybelline being my all-time favourite, managed a place in my kit. Have been using it since a week now and here is what I think about the product.
Sleek and very light! It comes in a black and white plastic body (thank god! no handle-with-care hassle). The brush is thin enough.. not super thin I would say! The bristles have the perfect length and the brush feels really light while applying which ensures better control and application.
Product on Application
The liquid has a good enough consistency. It’s neither too thin nor too thick. On application it takes about half a minute to dry and turn matte. If you’ve used Lakme Shine Line liner, I would say that this one doesn’t look as matte as the lakme one. Also, this one doesn’t crack much in the inner 1/4th corner of the eye like the lakme liner did, but cracking is still there.
It’s water proof and smudge proof as the product claims for itself.
It stays well for 8 hours. I can easily spend my day at work with this on!
It’s readily available online and at all the maybelline counters.
Why It couldn’t make 5/5
1. The price seemed slightly higher for the given quantity.
2. It tends to crack in the inner corner of the eyes
I am a big BIG fan of bling and pink! and when teamed, they are the best option for party nails! I used Maybelline “hooked-on-pink” as the base coat, holographic silver on the tips (not available in India, you can get in online.) lined with silver glitter particles (purchased online) to get this look.
You can try out your own combinations and create something new.
Glitter ALWAYS makes me so happy! This is what I wore for the last weekend party and I adored it! You can play along with as many and which ever colours you like. The reason for which I chose this combination is because it matched my outfit really well!
Red and Gold is an ever classic combination and the safest to play with when getting decked up for a close wedding and want to choose a dramatic look. For this classic red gold makeup, I chose to pair glitter gold eye make-up with a bold red matte lip color. Since the two shades spoke for themselves, I kept a loose hand at the blush. A highlighter is inevitable!
Have been looking for a Mint Nail Polish since long and Maybelline Forever Strong Super Stay 7 Days Gel Nail Color – Mint for Life is the latest addition in my nail polish drawer! Here is a quick update based on 2 coats application of Maybelline Gel Nail Polish and a single coat of clear top.
I have been highly obsessed with glitter eye-liners lately or rather I should correct myself and say I am obsessed with glitter ALWAYS!! I wore this beautiful glitter teal eyeliner for a dinner outing last week. Bling in any form looks best when worn at night. This eye-liner is even more special as it was gifted by a dear friend when we were just out of college in 2011, so it’s like 4 years old!! can be considered vintage 😉 none of my make-up product has been so old and lasted so well!!
This look that you see was created to make the bright teal look GLAMOROUS and not over the top, for which I kept rest of the face fresh and subtle.
For me winters are too cold to look pretty! This is when my dressing-up-mode gets switched OFF. My hands feel too cold to be patient with the art work on my face… Also, I feel my skin aching to be left alone. My vanity goes on a semi-hibernation and is bought into use only during wedding or parties. Some of my winter makeup essentials are:
1. Maybelline “The Colossal” Liner
It is all I need on my eyes throughout winters. It lasts about 8 hours after which it starts to smudge and loose its intense sharp look. It is absolutely quick and easy to apply letting your hands rush back to those warm gloves!
2. Nivea – Fruit Shine Cherry
A cherry tone and flavour lip balm adds instant brightness to the face and provides the required moisture to refrain your lips from chapping. The colour tint does not last long enough, It stays for about an hour or two. It requires touch-up 2-3 times a day!
3. Nivea Soft Creme
It’s a water based moisturiser and works best for me. It doesn’t feel heavy in the face like other cold creams do. Its absolutely non-sticky. I apply this twice on my face one in the morning, immediately after a bath. And once at night after a refreshing face wash.
This was all about my winter time favourites. You too can put in your thoughts in the comments section below 🙂
