Just a quick product review for you guys today. I had been hearing a lot about the Maybelline eyeliners, and I really haven’t bought much drugstore makeup in a long time. I have been trying to go for quality over quantity for my collection, because I used to have just tons of everything, and most of the products I didn’t even like!
So this is the Maybelline Unstoppable Eyeliner in the Colour Jade.
It is a twist up (yay no sharpening!) crayon type eyeliner pencil. I normally am very wary of drugstore products like this, because I get oily eyelids and even with a primer on these then to smudge and leave marks all over my eyelids… not fun!
So here is what it looks like:
It is a really sharp point when you first open it, which is amazing! Obviously that won’t last as you use it, but hopefully it stays fairly similar. It has great control when you are applying, so it is easy to get a nice thin line, which is what I like to wear. It doesn’t go on as smoothly as the Urban Decay 24/7 pencils, but for a drugstore liner it’s really pretty good! I have used some beasts that literally felt like they were slicing into my eyelid… I haven’t tried it on my waterline because I don’t usually wear liner there, but it is supposed to be waterproof, so I’m sure it would be great! It is a beautiful mossy green colour, not too vibrant, but definitely noticeable that you’re not wearing brown or black.
As far as wear goes, I was really impressed! It didn’t budge on me! I wore it for probably 8 hours, and it was exactly where I put it when I went to take off my makeup. It hadn’t smudged or transferred, or even disappeared (I sometimes have a problem with the UD 24/7 liners just tending to disappear on me). So for the $7-8 I paid for this I am so thrilled! I will be checking out their other eyeliners in the future for sure =)
