My Thoughts on Maybelline The Colossal Liner

I love eyeliners because they instantly add glam to your eyes!
I like felt tip liners coz they're so damn convenient to use!
Plus I'm an ardent fan of Maybelline!
Which brings me to buying this sexy liner - The Colossal Liner from Maybelline
Did I like it? Love it? Hate it? Ditch it?

The Colossal liner comes in a classic black pen type casing with a 0.04 mm felt tip which is classy!
The yellow lettering (?!) looks contrast and best with it but sadly it gets peeled of quick if you tend to carry the liner in your handbags frequently :(

The tip & shade description

The felt tip is precise enough to get you the thinnest line you want and at the same time for a thick line you don't need to keep lining for few minutes - just hold it slantly and line your eyes. The thicker bottom part of the tip gets you the thick line ;)
When it comes to the shade the liner is black enough but not pitch black. It is neither glossy nor matte, just the right shine line any liquid liner :D

Consistency, Texture & Longevity

You might be thinking qhy is this girl talking about consistency for a pen\felt tip liner?
Yes I'm because it does have it. The liner doesn't give a thick and opaque line in one coat, the first coat is bit on the thin side but the second coat does it all and you're done :)
Two coats give the decent coverage and if you're expecting a gel liner kinda lining then go for a third coat ;)

The Colossal liner is not waterproof and it comes with just water which is a big turn off upto me :( :(
I have super oily lids and this liner stays put for 4+ hours after which it starts fading lightly. But that's it and it stays for until around 9 hours that way which is great upto me because 90% of the liquid\pen liners crack and go away from my lids within 3-5 hours :(

Final verdict

Summing up the facts this liner gets a straight A+ from me and has become my cult favourite!! But definitely not suitable for summers and humid days :'(
Secret: After I bought this for nearly 3 months I forgot all my other liners. I just cleaned out my closet, hid this one and pulled out other liners to put them into use ;) :P


Rating: 4.3 out of 5 (-0.7 for not waterproof)
