I have been using the Maybelline Hypersharp liner for over a year. It is, hands down, my favourite liner EVER!!
However it’s almost drying up now. So when Maybelline came up with this new felt tip liner I HAD to get it! It’s already a major hit in the market 'coz of which I was super excited to use this.

It has a pretty long felt tip and the liner itself is very light.  This makes the application much easier. You can apply very thin strokes as well as thick as per your whim.
The colour payoff is amazing right from the first stroke. It’s got to be the blackest of  them all.

It takes a while to dry completely. It sets with a glossy finish. 
The application is real smooth. It does not tug at my eyes at all. Just one stroke is enough for the color payoff hence you donot have to go over several times.

Now uptill this stage this liner was a dream ‘about’ to come true. 

Half an hour later....
Me standing in front of the mirror, just short of screaming..."I WANT MY MONEY BACK!" well..I did scream it. 

My eyes were black. Like I got a "black eye" vala black. Completely smudged. Within 30 MINUTES!!
Yes I do have the worst oily lids ever! (I feel like I repeat that in every post!) But 30 mins!! It claims to stay for 12 effing hours!!
I tried it on again a day later. Brushed on a layer of compact on it. It lasted for about 45 mins.

So disappointed!! If it fares so on my eyes in the winters, I wouldn’t dare get this anywhere near my eyes during summers L

I personally would not recommend this to anyone as per my experience. But if you are dry skinned then you could try this. But be sure to try this on your eyes first (not your hands but eyes) before buying.


HOT/NOT:  NOT!!  Like everything about it BUT the staying  power. That alone is a deal breaker for me. Rather get the Maybelline Hypersharp liner. It costs the same.
