Last year, I was playing a game on Maybelline website and I got this eyeliner as a gift/prize. Though I did not expect to receive the same but was too happy as this is the only prize which I have won or received online till date. I did not expect to receive the same because companies make so many tall claims, but do not actually fulfill them, so this came as a pleasant surprise. Anyway, let’s take a look at the review of the same:

My Take on Maybelline Eyestudio Vivid and Smooth Liner Pink Pearl:
Pencil liners have always caught my fascination due to the ease of application and the wide variety of shades available in so many brands. This liner is very smooth, creamy and glides almost effortlessly on the eyelids. The pigmentation of Pink Pearl I would say is the worst of all, even after 5-6 swipes, it does not show clearly on my lids. It comes in a pencil form with the actual colour on one end and the plastic cap on the other.
Though the shade is very pretty and wearable and very girlie kind, but you need to swipe it 5-6 times for some colour ( I did not say the entire colour) to be seen on your eyes.
However, once it sets, it stays for 4-5 hours. On my oily lids, it even got transferred to the area above the crease. It has subtle shimmer particles, which don’t seem palpable once it is applied on the eyes.
I think the other shades have got good reviews, but this one I would not personally recommend.
I have swiped it about 12 times in the above swatch.
Pros of Maybelline Eyestudio Vivid and Smooth Liner Pink Pearl:
- A lot of shades are available to choose from.
- It is always easier to apply pencil liners as compared to the liquid ones.
- The colour is very pretty and girlie kind, can be worn both during the day as well as night.
- Staying power is good.
Cons of Maybelline Eyestudio Vivid and Smooth Liner Pink Pearl:
- The colour payoff is pathetic, even after so many swipes, it does not show the actual colour.
- You need to carry a sharpener along always and since I swipe it 5-6 times for one application, the nib becomes rounded soon and has to be sharpened quite a lot of time.
2 out of 5.
Will I Repurchase?
Though I loved the colour, still I would search for an alternative and would not buy this.
