The Story Behind:
I am a recent fan of colored eye pencils. So when I was hanging around aimlessly in a shopping mall, where my hubby was trying t-shirts, I was automatically drawn to the makeup counter of the mall. Despite, drowning in a pool of different eye color pencils, shadows, and liners, two polite girls from Maybelline counter succeeded in convincing me to buy two of Maybelline Eye Studio Vivid and Smooth Liners in Peacock Green and Maroon shade.
I am going to review the shade Peacock Green in this post. Although, the name of the shade is nowhere mentioned on the packaging. I tried the shade last week-end on an evening out with hubby and friends.
Price: 250/- for each pencil
Quantity: 1.2 g
Shelf Life: 2 years
My Experience with Maybelline Vivid and Smooth Liner Peacock Green:
This is not the first time I have got the green color eye liner. I have used green color eye pencils before but I must admit the shade Peacock Green from Maybelline Vivid and Smooth liner really does stand out. The liner contains sparkle particles that provide a glossy effect and distinguish this liner from other eye pencils in the market.
It comes in the shape of a sleek and slender black plastic pencil with the bottom of the same color as that of the liner. The transparent cap shuts well ensuring a sturdy and travel-friendly packaging. The texture of the liner is soft and creamy. And may be its because of this creamy texture, the liner somehow does not gives a sharp line.
I applied the liner directly on the upper eye lid and lower lash line of my eyes. It glided like a dream! Eyes looked instantly defined and bright. The shade matched my skin color perfectly. I have a fair complexion and shade Peacock green made my skin glow!
But what I liked most about this liner is that it lasts long and does not smudge. I actually had to use a copious amount of cleanser and face wash to remove the liner from my lash lines.
If you are a fan of colored eye pencils, this one is a must have.
How to Apply Maybelline Vivid and Smooth Liner by Eye Studio
It’s a versatile liner from Maybelline that can be used as an eye liner, eye shadow, and eye crayon. Depending upon the look you want to create, you can use the liner accordingly. However, always apply a thin layer of primer or makeup base before using eye liner, pencil, or shadow for an even and smooth finish. Here are the three different looks you can create with Maybelline Vivid and Smooth liner:
Use it as Eye Liner for Defined Eyes:
Lightly glide the liner across lower and upper lash liner starting from the inner to outer corner using very small strokes. For more finished and defined look, use it over your regular liner or pencil.
Use it as Eye Crayon for Dramatic Eyes:
The creamy texture enables you to use the liner like a crayon to create a bold look. All you need to do is glide the liner across upper lash liner from the inner to the outer corner using small strokes. Thicken the line by extending and repeating. For more dramatic effect, try winging out from the corner like 60s heroines.
