The Colossal Liner by Maybelline NY- review, swatches, EOTD

Maybelline NY The Colossal liner- review, swatches

The Colossal kohls from Maybelline NY are certainly a must have in every girl's makeup kit! I tried and tried but failed to discover any other kajal that has so many qualities in it altogether( that includes the pigmentation, the lasting power, the price etc etc).

Finally Maybelline decided to add another product to the Colossal line- The Colossal liner and I'm really surprised what took them so long! But anyways, as soon as I heard about this, now wonder I was excited to give it a try. And now that I have, I'm here to share my experience with you all! 

The Colossal liner has created a buzz in the blogging world these days, that's what Maybelline products do, don't they? 

What company says...

Enjoy eye catching intensity and flawless precision with the Maybelline New York Colossal Liner.

Designed to end all your application woes, the Maybelline New York Colossal liner features a 0.4 mm flexi tip applicator that gives you perfect error free lines. Empowered with the ink pigment technology, this colossal eye liner imparts smudge proof, fade- proof, intense color to your eyes. Its quick dry formula ensures a 12 hour staying power and quick application. Add this kajal to your vanity kit and enjoy stunningly beautiful eyes everyday.

In the mirror of my own experience 


Maybelline has maintained the black and yellow combination in keeping with the rest of Colossal products but the difference is very evident because the major colour in this is black with yellow accents while in the others it is vice versa. It comes in the form of a sleek pen which looks beautiful and is easy to slip in anywhere! The cap is sturdy and closes tight enough, keeping the pen tip safe.

It's the blackest of black shade that gives the desirable colour in a single swipe. The colour payoff is brilliant and you can easily get that one perfect thin line instantly! For a dramatic bold line or wing shape, this is again the liner that you should go for! 

Pigmentation &Texture

The pigmentation is one of the best that I've ever come across in penliners. The jet black shade is visible in a single swipe. The texture is very smooth and while applying it you will surely notice how easily it glides over the skin without feeling rough or coarse, thanks to the thin precision tip. 

Application & Effect

The liner can be used my amateurs with ease and comfort due to the smooth texture and beautifully designed precision tip. The shade comes on very well on my eyelids. After application it dries very quickly (not more than 15-30 seconds) and gives a nearly matte effect. Once ensured that the liner has dried, you can stop worrying about any smudging or fading problems because you will encounter none. On usual days I like my liner to be thin and not so dramatic while at times I can effortlessly get the bold winged look using this very eyeliner!

Lasting power

8-10 hours is the lasting power, which means it will last all day long! If you have oily eyelids, it can last for 8-9 hours and if not, 10-12 hours of no fading or smudging! Isn't that wonderful?! The liner is not waterproof, which is something I prefer for daily use so that it can be removed easily.

Good points

Sophisticated packaging. Travel friendly and sturdy at the same time.
Can be worn on the waterline too.
 Doesn’t irritate my sensitive eyes
 Stays on my lids for upto 10 hours.

 Smudge proof and fade proof eye liner.
Dries quickly.
Smooth texture, glides on easily.
Very inexpensive, keeping the excellent quality in mind.

Bad points

It is not waterproof, so you might as well avoid it on rainy days! 


Liners like this have restored my faith in pen liners once again and ever since I've come across the Colossal liner, I haven't touched any other eyeliner! It's got all the qualities you can desire in a single product along with the reasonable price, well that's the best part of Maybelline, isn't it? Once again, Maybelline did not fail to impress me which is why this is one of my favourite brands!
