Maybelline The Colossal Liner in Black Review, Swatch, EOTD

Hi everybody!

Recently while going through Maybelline’s official Indian website, I got to know that they’re launching a new liner and that too from the Colossal line. I mean, I’m sure every makeup addict has owned at least one Colossal kajal in their life and it really was a  successful product ever since it was launched in the Indian market. So without much apprehension/ second thought, I went ahead and bought the eyeliner from the colossal range. And here I am with the review of Maybelline Colossal liner. Read on to know how it fared for me.

My take on Maybelline The Colossal Liner in Black:


The Maybelline colossal eye liner comes in a very sleek and edgy packaging. Maybelline has maintained the black and yellow themed packaging of the colossal line with this eye liner too and while the colossal kajal comes in a yellow base with black accents, the colossal eye liner comes in an all black packaging and yellow accents. It looks very pretty and sophisticated. It is a rather thin and compact eye liner. the cap clicks tightly and securely. The flexi-tip applicator is just out-of-this-world kind of fabulous.

The Colossal eye liner by maybelline is one of the finest jet black eye liners I’ve come across. I earlier owned a jet black eye liner by Forever 21’s beauty range that I purchased on a visit abroad but I ran out of it in a month only and I searched for a similar one in India too but I didn’t find anything similar. Surprisingly, this Colossal eye liner is not only pure jet black, it is also one of the best eye liners I’ve owned yet. The shade looks great. The color payoff is brilliant. If you want a very thin line or just want to tightline your eyes, without making the eyes look too made up, I’d say this eye liner is what you must really check out.

Texture, longevity and pigmentation:

It is a jet black eye liner and that says a lot about its pigmentation. The eye liner has a smooth texture and it does not feel flaky or anything. It is very easy to apply this liner on the eye lids because of the thin precision tip. I’m in love with this tip, it is very thin and perfect for making thin lines on the eyelids. Maybelline has really nailed it this time with the flexi tip applicator of this eye liner. Like Maybelline claims, it definitely is a quick dry formula eye liner and it dries within a span of 15 seconds, or even less. it is a longstay eye liner. I have worn this eye liner for two days continuously by now and on each occasion I wore it for around 9-10 hours and when I cam back home in the evening, I found the eye liner still intact. It is smudge-proof and it does not fade at all. Despite the fact that I have super oily eye lids, this eye liner stayed on me for a really long time. All I can say now is that why didn’t Maybelline launch this eye liner earlier? It’s a wonderful product.

Pros of Maybelline The Colossal Liner in Black:

• Value for money. At INR 425, the quality of this eye liner is beyond amazing.
• Stylish packaging. Travel friendly and sturdy all the same.
• Smudge proof and fade proof eye liner.
• Quick dry eye liner.
• Easily available
• The flexi tip eases the application to a great extent
• Pure jet black eye liner. It looks absolutely gorgeous when applied as a winged eye liner.
• Can be worn on the waterline too
• Doesn’t irritate my sensitive eyes
• Stays on my oily lids for upto 10 hours

Cons of Maybelline The Colossal Liner in Black:

• Though it’s not a con but I’m still stating it- it’s such a wonderful product, I wish Maybelline had launched it a couple years ago only.
• Most eye products by Maybelline are ridiculously inexpensive. INR 425 is slightly on the higher side.
• Since it is a quick dry eye liner and it is also water proof, if there are any errors in the application, it has to be removed and to be applied from the scratch.

Will I repurchase it/ do I recommend Maybelline The Colossal Liner in Black?

It is the best eye liner I have used till date and that says a lot. I’m pretty sure that I’ll wear this and only this eye liner until I find something even better than this. And I recommend it to everyone.

IMBB rating: 4.8/5

Conclusion on Maybelline The Colossal Liner in Black:

It’s a jet black eye liner with a 0.4 mm flexi tip that is perfect for any and every kind of eye liner look. It is a quick dry formula eye liner that is also smudge proof and fade proof. It is one such product that everyone should have in their vanity kits.

  1. I was so eagerly waiting for its review…Trisha can you please tell me from where did you get…I am unable to find it on any online portals… 🙁

  2. I saw this eyeliner’s promotion on some facebook advertisement and since then I have been eagerly awaiting for someone to review it. Glad that it’s an awesome product. I was thinking of buying the Maybelline’s Hypersharp liner but now I am unsure about which one to buy. Which one would you suggest?

  3. I have super duper oily eyelids and no kajal yes no means no kajal/kohl/liner stays on my oily lids. I have tried everything from pencils to liquid and to gel eyeliners, but this liner is something which is super se upar. It stayed on my extreme oily lids for more than 20 hours. I slept putting this on and it was still on my lids the next morning. I just love thisssssss.

  4. I totally disagree tht it’s smudge proof…just an accidental rub of my finger tht too much later on puttng on the eyeliner left me with panda eyes….would not recommend this product at all.

  5. I used this product out of so much excitement but after using I was totally disappointed. Its not at all water proof. Just splash a water on face and its gone 🙁 its a thumbs down for me
