About time they came up with a decent pen liner that doesn't break the bank!
Having gone through a number of pen liquid liners, including the popular K-Palette Liner and MAC Penultimate, I haven't had one that truly satisfied like the Maybelline HyperSharp Liner did. Lotree came very close but it had more of a gel-liner finish.
Read on for my thoughts and swatches!
I will always prefer gel liners over liquid (reason unknown) but it's hard not to like this one! Sometimes when I'm on-the-go, I'll just need my eyebrow pencil, eyelash curler, mascara and the Maybelline HyperSharp Liner to look somewhat presentable.
The brush tip is really fine and gives good resistance to create a thin and controlled line. I haven't had any problems with the color not showing up or not coming out smoothly. While the ink is pigmented and glossy, it's not a very dark black but I can live with that.
With enough drying time, the liner doesn't lift off when I curl my lashes, which is a big plus. I believe it claims to be waterproof but it still smudges a little in the inner corners but overall, it's pretty long-wearing.
You know what pleases me the most? The fact that it's priced at an affordable RM23.90! For that price, this is a very very decent product. It's probably not the best there is but I like it enough to use is quite often simply because it's easy to use and you can count on it to get the job done.
I can finally stop hunting for an affordable liquid pen liner! Yay!
