Maybelline Colossal Eyeliner review

Since I’m a colossal loyalist ever since I bought the mascara two years ago, I made it a target to try their eyeliner form from the same range. I was really happy when I found that Maybelline has finally opened in Egypt so I won't have to wait till I or anyone I knew would travel to get it for me. I tried out the new 12 hour formula and I was amazed! It comes in the same yellow packaging which I really liked because I have a huge eye pencil and kohl collection and this one stands out and is super easy to locate, and I won't have to spend forever to find it. Another reason I had to purchase this liner, is my best friend. She is suffering from M.A.C's Smolder liner, and it seems she cannot find the proper eyeliner that does not smudge underneath her eyes. So, it was a challenge for me to find one that would suit her.
The Maybelline colossal eyeliner is creamy, soft and gives a smoothe glide on the eyes. Its quite dark black and has a good color payoff from a single stroke. A second swipe is required to get a darkest color. It didn't irritate my waterline at all, it doesn't tug on the eyes and like I mentioned, no stinging or any irritation. The pigmentation is great and the texture is more of a matte finish.
It is long wearing for sure as I saw first signs of fading from the outer corners of my waterline after about 5 hours of wear but the remaining part stayed intact for another 2-3 hours. After 8 hours though, it significantly faded though it didn't vanish completely. Its not entirely smudge-proof. But it doesn't bleed under the eyes and doesn't give raccoon eyes. Bingo! That is what I needed to know and to make sure of before recommending it to my friend.
Swatches: on the left one swipe, and on the right two swipes
Overall, its a great product and very well priced. If you’re looking for a good long stay kohl that doesn't  burn a hole in the pocket, do give this a try.

I got his from Ezaby Pharmacy for 35 L.E.!!
