Maybelline Hyper Matte Liner Review and Swatches!




Maybelline Hyper Matte Liner Review and Swatches!

ISLM Writer: Ishleen

Hello munchkins!
Summers are coming, and with it is coming the season of glossy makeup looks. But priorities being priorities, I love my matte black eyeliners and keeping in mind my obsession with the same, I have to give into my very own tube of the Maybelline's hyper matte eyeliner which is a relatively new release.



So it retails for INR 325 for 3 grams of product which is a bit more expensive than the earlier hyper glossy version. Though cheaper, I liked the Hyper glossy’s glossy black packaging so much better than the Hyper matte’s matte white tube and black screw- top lid. But apart from the average looks, the packaging is quite sturdy and also would not ditch you by opening and spilling in your precious vanity.



The applicator is cent percent the same as that of the Hyper glossy version. Sleek, long, thin, and with fine hair--though not the easiest to create a wing, but pretty good for lining your upper eye lids. For review purpose, I also tried it on my lower lash line, but it felt tingling there! *giggles*.

The shade though black is not the darkest of the lot. I like my eyeliner packed with black colour pigments but this baby lacks on the “black pigments” and dries up to a very darkish grey sort of colour which leans towards a lighter shade of black.


Secondly, whereas the “matte” claims are concerned, I am a bit doubtful — I mean it is matte, but not completely matte! I don’t know if I make sense right now, but yes, the eyeliner sets down to a semi- matte finish and to be honest, I don't like the finish of it much.



Coming to the most important aspect of the eyeliner— its staying power— this eyeliner is not the most long staying eyeliner I have ever used. My 92 bucks worth Lakme Instaliner stays for much longer than this baby. The Maybelline hyper matte starts flaking after say 4-5 hours of application and is not at all water-proof despite the claims.*sad*.

Rating
3.6/5



Final verdict

I have had a love- hate relationship with this baby, but if you are anything like me and have an instinct to try out each and every black eyeliner in the market, go for it. But for the price, there are better options in the market.

  1. I agree with your review. At times, I find clumps...like tiny balls of the product on the eyelashes. I find this very annoying.

  2. Better the Lakme one as you said, the maybelline one is a total waste of money as it starts flaking within 1 hr after application. A regret buy for me.

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...




Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018 Denim is forever. It's versatility makes it a classic and in the form of a jacket it not just looks dapper and en vogue but is also comfortable and convenient... I love denim jackets because they are perfect for Pune's so called Winters and because they are the best accessories for any kind of outfit...




Going through some of the Fall Winter 2017-18 collections from the likes of Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Stella McCartney, denim on denim seemed to be the trend in boxy and boyish silhouettes. I am not a very big fan of denim and denim and hence I prefer to pair my boxy denim jacket with a flowy, floral dress that makes the look strike a balance between feminine and androgynous.
