Maybelline Liner Definer Pen Eyeliner Review & Swatch





I'm really lazy when it comes to eyeliner, I really love the flicky look but can never perfect it and it always ends up being such a hassle having to wipe it off and start again that most days I don't actually bother with it anymore. However, for the times where I can be bothered I either reach for this pen or my Maybelline studio gel line (review here).

I find this easier to use as the brush that comes with the gel liner is a little bit harder to master compared to just 'drawing it' on your face although the gel does give a more defined and darker look which I actually prefer.

This pen glides on nicely and isn't too bendy or too stiff (naughty), the nib is nice and soft (felt I think) and it doesn't pull on your eyelid on the way over, although sometimes you do have to run the pen over a few times to get good colour payoff. It doesn't bleed into tiny little eye creases and it comes off easy with makeup remover.

This can smudge if that's what you want but once it's dried it does stay put. It doesn't last brilliantly, it does fade after 5 or so hours (I find that the studio gel lasts so much better!).

I thought I liked this pen but reading this review back it doesn't sound that convincing does it!  I do prefer the the studio gel but my dodgy handwork puts me off - but practice makes perfect I guess! x

What's your favourite eyeliner?

  1. Eye liner is hard for me to perfect too so a pen like this would be great for doing the flicks. Good that it stays put because too many times am I left with a horrible eye liner line on my eyelid! Not related to the post directly but I just want to say that your pictures always capture my eye and make me want to read your posts, they're always so pretty xo
