I can’t live without liner, so if a blogger or youtuber I follow mentions anything about a liquid liner you can see the poof marks in the air, I’m off to get it and try it.
I was in search of a new liner that was easily accessible here in Jersey Channel Islands, so when I saw Hello October ( I think…) mention a Maybelline one, I knew I had to try it.
Like me, she’s super fussy about the nib and looks for what I look for, so I felt pretty confident I’d like it.
I marched down to my local Boots and picked myself up the Maybelline Master Ink Liquid Liner.
First off I’ll say I wasn’t blown away by the packaging, it’s a bit shite really, no worse than anything else I’ve used but just same same but different.
The wand was what I was most concerned about though. I don’t tend to like the really stiff felt tip ones, and favour the more brush like style. At first glance I was a tad disappointed because it looked like the felt tips I hate, but once I tried it on my hand I realised it was firm yet soft almost like a brush but not exactly.
I have to say I adore using this product. Yes it can get on my lashes but most of them do, especially if you favour this type of wand. It applies so well, I find with other types of liners I can be there for ages trying to build up a decent wing, but this just glides on and comes out strong first time. I find the wand so easy to use. It’s like it has the perfect amount of product on it once its been taking out of the “pot”, and I know I said it already but I love that the wand is not too firm. I do love me a good “brush” wand (if you get what I mean) but I’m digging this felt tip one.
I’ve tried the Regular Matte and the Matte Waterproof. For me, there’s not a huge difference between the products. The waterproof one has a bit more staying power but not so much that I’d rave about it. I also think that most liner have a matte finish when they dry, but this formula does make it easier to work with and it doesn’t get everywhere as much, I think this is due to it being matte.
I never thought I’d say it but I think this has replaced my beloved Wet ‘n Wild Liner. Now if only they would do it in brown.
Whats your favourite liner?? Let me know in the comments xo
