Product Review - Maybelline The Colossal Liner

   On first look the Maybelline The Colossal Liner looks more or less like a marker with a black cylindrical body and a sturdy well fitted cap with the name of the product etched in yellow. It is sleek, compact, travel friendly, elegant and attractive to look at. It is provided with a flexible applicator with a thin pointed tip which makes applying the eyeliner in thin precise lines easy.
   The eyeliner pigment in jet black in color and glides easily on the lids without tugging onto the skin. It dries quickly to provide a glossy finish, is fade proof and stays on eyelids for the claimed 12 hours easily without chipping or flaking away. It's major downside for me is that it transfers onto opposing surfaces and smudges even with a light touch soon after the skin becomes oily so the liner can't be applied in thick lines or used by those who fidget with their eyes a lot. Not the best liner to be used in monsoon as it is not water resistant and gets washed off even with splashes of water. That being said it is good for daily use as it can be removed easily and does not irritate the eyes. Another concern is that the liner might dry right up if by chance the lid is kept open for long.
   Though it is easily available across both online and offline platforms much like other Maybelline products, it is a bit too costly when compared to other liners which may sting the pockets of buyers.
