Review | Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner

Rarely is there a day when winged eyeliner doesn't grace my peepers. After my usual Collection felt liner ran out, I decided I'd try something new and went for Maybelline's Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner. Don't be fooled by the name, ladies, this is a felt liner.

Retailing for £5.99, I picked this eyeliner up in Superdrug. The thing that made me go for this liner was the uniquely shaped tip. Longer than most eyeliners I've tried, but really easy to apply as the fine tip makes, as the name suggests, application precise. Super black too, I was sure I was going to love it.

However good this eyeliner looks when first applied, this is unfortunately short lived. I have never had a problem with eyeliner smudging, but a few hours after applying this I get a major case of panda eyes. I've tried everything, ladies: setting underneath with face powder, setting over the top with black eyeshadow, even going over it in another eyeliner. Why this is is a complete mystery, I don't have oily lids and usually get pretty good lasting power out of most eye makeup. The only time I can see me using this now, unfortunately, is when I only need makeup on for an hour or two and, let's face it, how often does that happen? Such a shame, as I thought this was going to be a winner.

What's your favourite felt eyeliner? Have you tried this one?


  1. I've never tried this one before, I usually use a pencil eyeliner! Such a shame it smudges. :(
