Review: Maybelline Eyestudio line allure liquid eyeliner

Hello dolls,
I do hope the summer been treating you well! My holidays have been going on beautifully, thank you for asking. So coming up in this post is our beauty review for the month.

Maybelline Eyestudio line allure liquid eyeliner

Before I started this blog, I had always been a kohl girl & used eyeliner rarely *don't even get me started about the tediousness of applying a liquid one!* With time, lots of practice, and slowly experimenting with gel liners as well as liquid ones, I now use eyeliners more often than kohl - I just find it suits my eyes more.

This liquid eyeliner comes in a tube with a black body and silver screw-on cap. The packaging is neat and it tiny and portable enough to carry it around in your bag. Once opened, the liner has a hard felt tip.

Price: Rs 200

Results after using:

• Pros:
- It dries quickly and leaves a glossy finish.
- The black colour is rich.
- The staying power is good. It has lasted on me for 6- 8 hours.
- The hard felt tip is great to use. For a newbie, it will take some getting used to.
- Affordable price 

• Cons:
- It is not waterproof.
- When you try to apply a second coat of it, the first coat is removed which leaved empty spots in the middle of the line.
- After the first few hours, it flakes and you will find small black flicks of it on your lid. 

Rating: 6/10

My advice:
While Maybelline is one of my favorite companies and I use a lot of their products, this eyeliner was a let down. I like the glossy finish and the long staying power but the flaking and the double coat problem cancel out the rest of such a great product. When there are issues like this with a product, it is hard to focus on the good points of it. 

I do hope you like the review !  So what do you wear more frequently - Kohl or liners ? 

Happy Weekend dolls!

Not really a big fan of eyeliners. I am a Kohl user all the way.

I only use liquid liner, kohl just doesn't seem to stay on my top lid! I'm still yet to find the perfect liquid liner though, it drives me insane if they flake or smudge when you've spent ages getting a perfect winged shape! MAC's liquidlast is very good but it's a nightmare to correct mistakes or remove at all xx

Dont worry, a little practice and time is all it takes !
Dayle Pereira said…
I know, I've switched to a new one ever since.
Dayle Pereira said…
Probably, but sometimes one application isn't enough in terms of colour.
Dayle Pereira said…
I totally get that - Kohl is way easier to use!
Dayle Pereira said…
Agree ! Maybelline is a great brand, except for one-off products like this.

I know, it can get annoying as ever! I really should try the MAC one !
