Who doesn't like to flaunt their precious eyes with a pop of colour. Me too love applying kajals/ liners on my eyes everyday. I love how they make my eyes look bigger and well-shaped. I like liquid eyeliners more than the pencil and gel ones. I am a learner (to draw perfect eye line) now and a liquid liner help me on that way very much. I always end up lining two different shape lines on my both eyes, wish someday I will draw a perfect line like others... Liquid eyeliners are normally comes in two packaging i.e, bottole packaging and Pen form. The pen form liners are very easy to apply especially if you are learner. Hence today's review is on the New Maybelline Colossal Liner Black which is in a pen form and a boon for eye makeup lovers.
Brand Claims: A definite must have in your make-up kit, get your inner Cleopatra out with Maybelline’s Colossal Liner. It comes with a 0.4 mm Flexi Tip Applicator which enables error-free and quick application. It’s empowered with Ink-pigment technology providing stunning, defining lines as well as intense color.
- It is the perfect antidote to your eye liner woes!
- Its smudge-free, quick-dry formula ensures long-lasting bold application.

My Opinion: The Maybelline Colossal Liner comes only in black colour,i wish Maybelline will soon launch this liner in other colours as well. It is a pen like liner which is really easy to hold and to apply a perfect line. The color pay off is very dense,a single stroke gives jet black finish. Pigmentation wise it is the perfect liner I have ever seen. The liner dries up within seconds and gives a semi-matte finish look. Even after some hours it looks the same as in starting means doesn't crack or looks stretchy.. It is very easy to apply with this pen especially when you are in hurry..so easy and so perfect. I normally can't line perfect winged liner ever ,but through this I lined a perfect winged one in just first attempt. I love it really very much. It is not completely water-proof. I wash my face with a cleanser and it removes completely without any messy. I am using this for a while now and doesn't experience any drying or any other issue with the tip so far. It stays on my eyes for 5-6 hours in this summer and I think it will be more during the cold weathers.
The packaging is very simple like a black lightweight pen with bright yellow writing on it. It is very handy to apply and easy to carry around as the the cap is very tight enough to open. The soft little foam tip is flexible yet firm and glides smoothly on eye lids. It holds good control while lining eyes to give a perfect finish. The tip is really pointed and easy to apply.
- The pen form liner is very convenient to apply.
- One stroke gives jet black finish
- Well pigmented
- Flexible yet firm tip applicator
- Holds good control while drawing lines on eyes
- Doesn't smudge
- Doesn't crack after some hours like other liquid liners do
- Stays for 7-8 hours
- Travel-friendly packaging
- None (since it is not fully water-proof but i don't have any problem with that,hence there is no concern factor for me )
Simply I can say the Maybelline Colossal Liner is my love at first application and I will repurchase it again and again. If you are a beginner and learning how to make a perfect line on your eye lids then this pen liner is a perfect option to try..I will recommend this tiny beauty to everyone who loves doing makeup .
P.S- PR Sample but my opinion is unbiased and honest.
