My Experience with Maybelline Eye Studio Cream Pencil Eyeliner – Sapphire Strength:

I am a novice in using eyeliners, so I thought I would start with eyeliner pencils which are easier to use. I got this input from our IMBB beauties when I had asked for suggestions through “Ask IMBB” section and I am so thankful to all.

Since I had heard a lot about Maybelline pencil liners, I thought of giving it a try. While I was checking out the liners mainly in black, as my main motive was to try and learn with a simple one with basic black colour, my eyes fell on this sapphire shade.  I did purchase a black eyeliner, but I also could not resist buying this one, and I am so happy I bought it because the colour is lovely.

I love this pencil, its very creamy in texture and this makes the application pretty easy.  You don’t have to trace the line over and over, even for a beginner.  The finish is superb.  It does not tug on the skin, and there’s no breaking of the line.  It has a little shimmer in it and is absolutely perfect for both day and evening wear. Even though it has got a creamy texture, it does not run down or smudge on my lids. Of course it smudges a bit when you rub the eyes, but that’s okay for me.

Overall, I love this product for the ease of use and of course the colour.  I was not sure how the liner would look on me, but now I don’t step out without wearing it. It has become as necessary as my lip balm.

Now that I am comfortable using pencil liners, I think I can move ahead to liquid or gel liners too.

  1. I got the same pencil from the US in the same shade and I had a terrible experience. It was hard,horrible staying power and barely showed up. Total flop for me. *headbang* *nababana*

        1. That’s surprising. Coz this pencil of mine is soft enough to use easily and the color shows up beautifully as seen in the swatches. Sad, you had a terrible experience.

  2. the color is sooo beautiful. :)) and the swatch is super cute :)) I am more of a sharpening pencil liners fan. But I really wnat to lookout for this shade. It’s beautiful 🙂

    1. Thanks Rati. You can give it a try. When I want a fine line, I just roll it once onto a cotton pad or tissue to give it a point.
      The color is so gorgeous, I always want to use this one even when it does not go with the outfit and then I have to stop my self and go for the other liner. 🙂

  3. That is such a cool and a rocking blue *woot* *woot* i want to buy it asap *woot* *happy dance* *happy dance* waiting to find it somewhere *hifive* *hifive*

  4. I love this eye pencil and specially this shade…but mine dried up quite fast and it became so difficult to apply after few months..also u can’t retract it 🙁 does urs retract?
