Maybelline Hyperglossy Liquid Liner Review

I had heard about the launch of Maybelline Hyperglossy Liquid Eyeliner a few weeks back and I was waiting eagerly for it to become available at online stores or local counters. I noticed it was available at a few online sites 1-2 weeks back and as soon as I saw it, I ordered.  It was going out of stock at all the sites pretty fast which forced me to order it immediately.

Maybelline Hyperglossy Liquid Liner Review


Rs. 225 for 3 grams.

Shelf Life:

2.5 years.

Hyperglossy Liner 1

My Experience with Maybelline Hyperglossy Liquid Liner:

Maybelline hyperglossy liquid eyeliner comes in a long, triangular, black bottle. Though the bottle is long, the jar containing the eyeliner is very tiny and the long size of the bottle is due to the long brush. The brush gets sealed off properly in the bottle and this makes the packaging totally spill-proof and travel friendly.

The color of the eyeliner is jet black. Its intensely pigmented and a single swipe is enough for showing the jet black color. True to its name, the eyeliner doesn’t have matte finish, but it has glossy finish. This glossy finish stays till the time the eyeliner isn’t removed. It gives a very fresh look to the liner and it seems that the eyeliner is applied just now.  The brush is of very good quality and has extremely fine bristles which glide on smoothly on the lids.  The brush is appropriate for applying very thin liners, creating winged looks and applying thick, bold lines as well.

Hyperglossy Liner 2

The liner dries up in seconds; it takes maximum 10 seconds to dry. The liner is totally smudge proof. I have rubbed my eyes a number of times after applying this eyeliner and it has never smudged. It stays on my lids for 7-8 hours, without any fading. The eyeliner is not waterproof and gets removed easily with a makeup remover.

Hyperglossy Liner 3

The quantity required for lining the eyes is totally normal. A single swipe is enough to line a single eye. In case, I plan to apply thick and winged eyeliners, the quantity required increases manifolds.

Pros of Maybelline Hyperglossy Liquid Liner:

  • True to its name, the glossy finish of this eyeliner stays till the liner is removed.
  • Smudgeproof.
  • Intensely pigmented.
  • The brush has very fine bristles and is very easy to use.
  • Dries up very fast.
  • Very easy to remove.
  • Spill-proof, travel friendly packaging.

Cons of Maybelline Hyperglossy Liquid Liner:

  • Quantity of the liner is quite less and sometimes, I tend to use it in a large amount while applying thick lines, hence it might finish quickly.

IMBB Rating:


Will I Repurchase/Do I Recommend Maybelline Hyperglossy Liquid Liner?

Yes, definitely.  Try this out if you are looking for good black eyeliner in an affordable range. I like this eyeliner a lot and I am sure I will repurchase it once I finish it.

Oh I was so looking forward to this review! What is the type the skin on your lids Surbhi? Mine are rather oily and even the Clinique Quickliner smudges on me, so I’d like to know if this one would stay.


Surbhi December 14, 2012 at 3:29 pm

Lovely review Surbhi.Agree with you 100%. I was not comfortable with eye liners and had in fact given up on them since I could never manage to draw a straight line in spite of trying multiple products. This one is perfect for newbies like me.Straight line on the first attempt and smudge proof too.

I made my friend buy this for her wedding makeup kit! Came out really nicely on her!


Shriya December 15, 2012 at 1:57 pm

Amanda May 28, 2016 at 9:07 pm

Just bought this liquid liner today.
Usually I don’t fancy liquid liners, this this liner is so good that I have returned to using liquid liners 🙂
Such a great liner, it beats my Stila liquid liner!
