The days when we don't feel like applying any eye makeup, a simple eyeliner saves the look. Like any other makeupholic, I too hoarded a lot of them. Few months back, Maybelline launched a pen eyeliner from the Colossal range which is insanely famous for their quality items. Be it a kajal or mascara – the range never disappointed us. This liner gained some raved reviews and therefore I was itching to get my hands on it. Somehow I convinced myself not to buy as I am yet to finish several liners stashed in my vanity, but the sale season is just so tempting and easily overpowers my will. Well, it is painful to stay away from such a tempting beauty and I finally got it for myself. So read on to know more about the product in detail to find out why the beauty world is going crazy over this beauty.

My Experience With Maybelline The Colossal Liner Black:

To start with the packaging, it simply looks like a normal sketch pen with a light weight pitch black plastic body and a cap that shuts with a click. The liner is extremely travel-friendly and effortlessly fits into your purse. The tip of the liner is 0.4mm, but the beauty lies mainly on the flexible tip that can be controlled easily. It is due to the long size of the tip and its flexibility that enables one to draw any line precisely– be it sharp or broad. Nowadays cat eyes and the winged liner is quite the trend of the season but drawing these perfectly is quite a job especially when you're in a hurry. Thanks to the colossal liner, it is an easy task now. If you want dramatic eyes, but don't want to invest much time, the liner helps in drawing the edgy lines flawlessly.

The pigmentation of the liner is jet black and it settles down with a semi-shiny black effect. The surprise element is the drying power. It dries up within seconds of applying and you won't have to wait forever for the liner to settle down. The only heartbreaking thing about the product is that it is not at all waterproof. The moment it comes in contact with water it starts seeping down very badly, distorting the whole eye makeup. Due to this drawback, I wouldn't actually recommend the product for the waterline. As the color is black, there is a high chance you would end up with a terrible case of smudged eye makeup. Speaking of smudge proof, it doesn't smudge on its own but if you accidentally rub your eyes, then it is going to smudge.

The staying power, when untouched, turns out to be exactly what the brand claims, i.e., 12 hours which is quite an advantage. Judging the price, Maybelline has always been economical and comparing the pen eyeliner from other brands, this is definitely a catcher any given day! Let's have a summary for the product.

Pros Of Maybelline The Colossal Liner Black:
  • Easy and travel-friendly packaging.
  • Jet black color without any streakiness.
  • Great color payoff with a single swipe.
  • Great flexible tip of 0.4mm for every precise application.
  • Great for cat eyes, winged eye or dramatic looks.
  • Stays for 12 hours without touching or a splash of water.
  • Reasonable price for the quality provided.

Cons Of Maybelline The Colossal Liner Black:
  • Smudges if eyes are rubbed accidentally.
  • Not at all waterproof.

Final Note:

The colossal liner, if not the best, is good enough for regular looks. If not the cons, the product would have been a blast but nevertheless, it has its own merits. I would surely recommend it if you want to experience a hassle-free liner. This definitely deserves a try!
