REVIEW | Maybelline Hyper Sharp Power Black Liquid Liner

Well personally I’m not really into makeup and cosmetics. I hardly apply any eyeliner to be honest as I had my eyeliner directly tatted on my eyelids LOL. Lazy bums like me definitely prefer the fastest way ever in such a busy lifestyle nowadays. Additionally, I don’t have thye skill to draw a good line, couldn’t find any eyeliner that is really to my liking,  and I hate those hard to remove liners as well.  

But I got this Maybelline Hyper Sharp Eyeliner from my colleague last Christmas during a gift exchange. It mentioned ‘Hyper Sharp’ which definitely caught my attention. Well, why not give a try. Before this I heard how good it was from a girlfriend of mine. She said the pen is really fine, and very long lasting on her.

The one I got is ‘Power Black’. Somehow I still prefer a black colour liner than a brown one as my eyeliner tattoo is also black so it’s easier to colour match. 

After using, I was amazed by how fine it is! 

  1. 0.05MM PRECISE CONTROL TIP. 

  2. SMUDGE-PROOF AND WATERPROOF FORMULA. Water, sweat and oil resistant. Does not stain eyelids. Easy to remove with makeup remover.

  3. Safe for sensitive eyes and ophthalmologist-tested.

  4. Contact lens safe.

Here’s a closer look at the pen tip of the eyeliner. The tip is a brush tip, making it very easy to control and contour against your eyes.

How to Use:

1. START AT INNER CORNER OF UPPER EYE. EXTEND BEYOND TOP LASH LINE.
2. EXTEND LOWER LINE INWARD SO LINES MEET IN THE INNER CORNER OF EYE.

MY EXPERIENCE:

See my above picture. Look at how fine a line I can draw using this eyeliner. Normally, I will just draw a slight tail at the end of my tatted eyeliner to have the effect of winged eye and I get about 3 to 4 hours of wear time from the eyeliner before it starts melting and transferring to my lower lids. 

Well, I’m quite disappointed when it happened. Not really water resistant and sebum resistant as it claimed though. The pen tip is indeed very sharp and will be very useful for people who need to draw fine eyeliners or get a cat eyes effect. Their tip is a brush tip which is my favourite kind of tips because they can bend and conform to your eyes so that you get that perfect line. The only thing that I really like is the matte finish because I feel like it enlarges the eyes better than a shiny eyeliner. 

Last but not least, this eyeliner is easily removed with Vaseline or baby oil. Not really suitable if you have oily skin.
