Maybelline New York Colossal Bold Eyeliner Review

Maybelline New York is an affordable drugstore brand which is one of my favourite as it has great quality products in a budget. It was the first brand whose makeup products I used and I love it to the core. I was searching for a good and affordable liquid eyeliner which lasts long, is smudge proof and water proof and then this Maybelline New York Colossal Bold Eyeliner caught my eye. I instantly thought to buy it as I have tried Maybelline colossal kajal and quite liked it. So, giving this a try was a must for me. Also because it was the Nykaa’s hot pink sale and all the products were on a good discounts so why not.

Maybelline New York Colossal Bold Eyeliner comes in its statement black and yellow packaging. All the necessary details are mentioned on the outer cardboard packaging itself. The main product comes in a cute little triangular cylindrical bottle with a black cap which has brush attached to it. The cap has a really long handle which makes it really easy to hold and apply. Also, its thin so you can grip it comfortably. Nothing fancy a super affordable and basic jet black liquid eyeliner, nothing less.

I have been using Maybelline products since many years and I absolutely love the quality as well as the price. This colossal liquid eyeliner is also one of my favourite now. The finish of the eyeliner is somewhere going towards glossy but is not completely glossy as well. It’s somewhat matte & glossy both, a demi matte you can say. Feels light on the lids, stays for good 6-8 hours but might smudge after a few hours depending upon a various external factors like oily eyelids, rain, tears, rubbing your eyes, weather and many more things.

The claim of 24 hours is not at all true. But yes if all things work well then it can last for good 12-14 hours if you don’t touch it at all. It does smudge and is not water proof. I have attached the pictures how on contact with water it starts to wear off or flake.

upon smudging it does wear off

However, it is very intense. For me according to the price, discount, quality and brand’s trust I obviously love it. Apart from the 24hour claim rest everything I like. I don’t find any con in it. Honestly who even does wear makeup for straight 24hours right? Even a newly-wed bride takes her makeup off after 12hours max. so, for me I don’t even need 24hour long lasting eyeliner because practically I won’t wear it for that long. So for me it’s a decent product to try out. But yes if you want to put in some drama to your blog like some people do (no offense) it doesn’t stay foe 24hour which is a big con. Which is actually true.

So, that’s all for this review. Hope you guys liked it and find it helpful enough to make a decision. Check out my thoughts on drugstore foundations.
