My Take on Maybelline Vivid and Smooth Liners Olive and Metallic Silver:
I love pencil liners for their ease of application. I have them in most of the colours and I use them almost every day. Olive and Metallic Silver from Maybelline are my latest purchases as I was looking for these particulars shades. Well, right, I got these primarily for their shades, but gladly they also perform/work well.
The liners are creamy, soft in texture and glide easily on the eyelids without any effort/tugging. Their pigmentation, I wouldn’t say is intense/great, but these can be built upon by swiping the liners 2-3 times.
I find their staying power decent (about 4-5 hours without fading) and these don’t smudge. However, these are not waterline safe (in my opinion), so you should avoid them there and just use these as eyeliners.
I tried these all over the lid too, but these were a little creamy, creased and transferred on the area above the lid crease. I guess these are not for my oily eyelids to be used as an eyeshadow, but as eye liners, these are great.
Both the shades are very pretty and wearable. Olive is a shimmery green (I would call it between khaki and henna green) with golden/copper-coloured shimmer particles in it. Its a gorgeous shade for evening wear/party wear makeup, but I doubt I will wear this in routine.
Metallic Silver is dark grey with specks of fine silver shimmer. I won’t call this a full-on/proper silver/shimmery eyeliner as the shade name suggests. This is my favourite out of the two and I am wearing this quite often these days.
Overall, these eyeliners/pencils are good value for money and I would definitely recommend these.
Here are a few pictures of these on my eyes:
