Be Talk: Maybelline Master Drama Kohl Liner

Product name:  Maybelline Master Drama Kohl Liner

Type: Pencil Liner

Shade: Black

Price: Around 7 Euro

Availability: Not available in India yet

Well this is after I moved to Germany for pursuing my studies. The first thing that I needed to survive in this new place was-err-a perfect black eyeliner!! Hehe-it sounds weird-but I can honestly confess that I can survive German food-German winter and well even the preliminary shocks of living away from family-but I wouldnt survive a day without a jet black-longstaying eyeliner!!!

This is my everyday look-so you can guess how much my regular NEED for liners is :D
 So-the first thing I looked for in the supermarket here in Germany was –yes-not cereals, not soaps- but a good eyeliner pencil!!! The one that I brought from home along with me here-the Revlon Colorstay liner pencil-I have preserved it like some heaven’s gift (yes! Even here-why-I shall discuss shortly!). To take its place-well not exactly-but close-I now have  the Maybelline Master Drama Eyeliner pencil and here-I talk about it!

The twist up version is shown here-however I prefer the shapen-able variety

I dont know why they call it Khol instead of Kohl!!!

Maybelline is one magic brand which can bring before you exactly what you want- at the price you are willing to pay and the quality you can happily accept. The Maybelline Master Drama Eyeliner pencil gets full marks on my first criterion-it gives the most pigmented and blackest black line in one swipe. The finish is glossy and the liner does not budge a bit even when I am wearing for a whole day! And..the price is just 7 Euros!! Beat that!

U get that in just one stroke!

After wearing the liner for a full day!!!
Okay –but even this piece of beauty can be beaten! Although this liner doesn’t fade much or smudge even on lower lashline-it messes up my upper eyelid somewhat :(  Well-off course I make a thick line-thicker than one usually makes with an eyeliner-but after 5 minutes of applying I am sure find to a black rainbow forming on my eyelids !! 

 That is where my old buddy Revlon Colorstay take away the laurels! (read its review here) The Revlon Colostay-would stay exactly where I would put it-not a millimeter aside! 

So to sum up:

Pro  Side:

1) Most pigmented black liner one can expect
2) One stroke of this line gives a glossy-pitch black line.
3) Doesnt fade even on my oily eyelids. Staying power is nearly whole day (12 hours)
4) Price is within grocery-budget! :D

Down Side:

1) Smudges on the upper eyelid-however this wont be a problem for girls liking a thin line
2) Not available in India
