Weekend is almost here! Praise the Lord! 😛 Time to pamper yourself and catch up on some sleep 😀
Today, I bring the first eye product review on TJD by me 😀 It’s Maybelline the Colossal Liner in Black! The reason behind not writing any eye product reviews is I hardly use eye shadows and the only thing I use on a everyday basis is eyeliners.
So here goes… 🙂
Product Name: Maybelline the Colossal Liner in Black
Product Description by Maybelline:

My take on Maybelline the Colossal Liner in Black
Packaging: I am someone who can never use liquid eyeliners. I have given it a try and never have I been able to master a perfect line with it. But till I actually get a hang of it, I mostly depend on felt tip eyeliner pens. So this purchase didn’t come as a surprise 😛 Maybelline the Colossal Liner in Black comes in a glossy black pen with the fonts written in yellow. Maybelline the Colossal Kohl Liner was vice-versa. I think they nailed it with the packaging as it’s handy, sleek and travel friendly! I haven’t had any issues with the cap loosening out or anything else till now 🙂 The tip is made up of sponge so it is safe to use on your delicate eyelids.
Texture: The texture of this liner is creamy on application and settles down to a glossy finish after a few minutes. I am not a fan of matte eyeliners so I love the texture ♥ The colour is intense black just like Maybelline the Colossal Kohl and I have never seen any other eyeliner so pigmented that’s available in drugstore brands in India right now. I think pigmentation-wise, it’s the best out there! 🙂
Results: I have been using it non-stop for the last one week and I am head-over-heels in love with it! 😀 I have used many felt tip eyeliner pens from various brands but this one by Maybelline is hands down the best ♥ It is that intense black eyeliner that I always wanted! It’s insanely pigmented and smudge-proof! Once you apply, it doesn’t budge the entire day 😀 The eyeliner sets real quick so you will have to be really careful with application.
The felt tip is 0.4mm which makes it a breeze to draw the thinnest line possible or a thick one. 🙂 Winged eyeliner look is super easy to draw with this one – trust me, it’s coming from someone who is a Grade F at drawing perfect winged eyeliner look 😛 But with this, I have no issues. 😀
It stays for really long as it claims. On me (for reference, I have oily lids), it stays the entire day. At the end of the day, I use a eye-makeup remover to wipe it off. The only con I can find is it’s not completely waterproof. On contact with water, it can get a little messy 😐
And here’s how Maybelline the Colossal Liner in Black looks on me 🙂
Pros of Maybelline the Colossal Liner in Black:
- Intense black colour
- Felt tip works really well to draw thin as well thick lines
- Lasts for 8 to 10 hours
Cons of Maybelline the Colossal Liner in Black:
- It’s not completely waterproof. 🙁
The Jeromy Diaries Verdict
I love this eyeliner by Maybelline and I will re-purchase it because I haven’t found something so good in the eyeliner category in other drugstore brands here. 🙂
