It’s been a while since I reviewed any eye products here. All summer, I just wore a plain black eyeliner because with the heat, my excitement level for putting on any fancy make up went pretty low. Anyhow, now that the weather is changing, I recently did a mini haul of eye products mainly. One of the products from this mini haul is Maybelline Hyper glossy electrics eyeliner in the shade Gold Lation, which I’m reviewing in this post. Read on to know more about it.

My take on Maybelline Hyperglossy Electrics eyeliner in Gold Lation:
Packaging: the Hyper glossy Electrics eyeliners by Maybelline coming in a packaging very similar to the packaging of regular Hyper glossy liners by Maybelline. The packaging is sleek and triangular in shape. It has a slender but tiny bottle and a long brush handle which is black in color. The bottle is in the color of the eye liner, like it is golden in this case because the liner is called “Gold Lation”. The brush closes real tight and it is very well visible that the quality of packaging is really good. The eyeliner is spillproof and sturdy and since it is so sleek, it can easily fit anywhere and is travel friendly too.
Shade: the shade Gold Lation is a true golden color. It is not overly towards brown nor is it more towards yellow, it is what golden looks like and that’s what I like about it. the eyeliner also has very minute shimmer particles which are not at all visible as such. The shade is true to its description, it is a bright and electric golden that instantly adds a pop of color to the eyes and also brightens the eyes. The eyeliner belongs to the Hyper Glossy range by Maybelline, so it is not surprising that the eyeliner has a glossy finish to it. on application, the eyeliner gives a sheen to the eyelids that remains intact all throughout. The color is kind of a muted golden and does not look too over the top. The thing with most golden eyeliners is that we associate them with only party-wear makeup but I’m glad that’s not the case with this liner. It’s very wearable and can be worn on regular days to, like to work or outings with friends etc.
Texture: I’m pretty sure almost everybody has tried at least one eyeliner from Maybelline’s Hyper Glossy range and everyone is aware of the texture. The texture of Hyper Glossy electrics liners is also very similar to that of Hyper Glossy regular eye liners. The texture is neither too thick, nor too runny, it’s just right. The texture of the brush is also very smooth, it has fine bristles that are perfect for drawing thin or thick lines as per what we want. The eyeliner needs good 2-3 swipes even when applying thin lines; it applies very smoothly on eyelids without much tugging or pulling. The eyeliner has a quick dry formula and dries in less than 45 seconds.
Longevity: the eyeliner stays on me for around 5 hours but then I have extremely oily eyelids and no eyeliner stays on me longer than that. This eyeliner is not water resistant and can be removed very easily with water only; I so wish it were waterproof. Also, this eyeliner is not smudge proof and I have to be super careful about not touching my eyes so often. Since it’s only a 3gm bottle and every time I apply it, it needs at least 3 swipes, I’m thinking I’ll go through this bottle pretty soon and I’ll have to repurchase it soon.
Pros of Maybelline Hyperglossy Electrics eyeliner in Gold-Lation:
• Affordably priced at INR 275
• Sturdy and travel friendly packaging.
• Nice and wearable gold color. Despite being an electric gold color, it does not look over the top at all.
• Does not irritate my sensitive eyes at all.
• Super smooth bristled brush applicator. Easy for applying thin to thick line on eyelids.
• Nicely pigmented
• Quick dry formula
Cons of Maybelline Hyperglossy Electrics eyeliner in Gold-Lation:
• People who prefer matte eyeliners can skip it.
• It is not water extent, not this particular color at least, don’t know about others.
• It smudges if I touch/ rub my eyes, which I do quite often.
• Quantity is pretty less and I’ll run out of this bottle pretty soon I think.
• Needs good 3-4 swipes for thin layer of eyeliner too.
Will I repurchase it/do I recommend Maybelline Hyperglossy Electrics eyeliner in Gold-Lation?
I’ll repurchase it only because it is a very wearable gold eyeliner and I recommend it.
IMBB Rating: 3.9/5
