Along with their multitude of metallic releases, Maybelline quietly launched a new liner formula- Master Precise Ink Metallic.
I started out with 540 Violet to test the formula and applicator. Normally I'd purchase at least two shades in a line to test but given my worries about the applicator... I wanted to wait.
|Because the writing on it is metallic, it was hard to photograph!|
Here's the good/bad news (depending on your perspective): It's a brush applicator.
For me, it's a deal breaker. I'm glad I didn't purchase more than one.
Here's a swatch:
I love the shade, and think it would be awesome for someone that could actually work with a brush tip applicator.
I tried a graphic look with it. I don't think I like this look, but hey... I'm trying.
FYI, I used Sephora tape on my eye to form the shape. See what I mean about the shade? It's lovely.
I tested this for about eight hours and it remained the same level of metallic and beautiful the whole time. A+ on the formula. If you can handle the applicator, you'll probably adore this new liner.
Bottom Line: I really need to get with it when it comes to brush applicators, because this really made my eyes pop. it's a really cool new offering and I'll keep playing with it. I highly recommend picking one of these up (I found mine cheapest at Walmart) at your local retailer.
