Maybelline Master Drama Kohl Eyeliner Deep Purple: Review

A little beauty trick I've seen time and time again is to use a purple eyeliner instead of a black one. It is meant to make my green eyes pop. So when I saw this new kohl liner from maybelline in my local Boots I just had to buy it!

The liner I got is the Maybelline Eye Studio Master Drama Kohl Liner in Deep Purple/Ultra Violet (I've no idea why they decided to give the colour two names). The shade is a beautiful shimmery dark purple.I just adore the colour! It's super pigmented, creamy and long lasting! Once applied I can trust it to stay in place for about 6-8 hours (nothing amazing but still pretty good). I apply it to my upper lid and I much prefer how it looks compared to a black liner.

Unfortunately I'm not overly enamored with the fact that if I apply it to my waterline it smudges badly and melts away after around 2 hours. Another fault I have is that it's just too creamy (never thought that'd be a problem). This makes it quite difficult to sharpen as it's just too soft. I seem to be going through the pencil quite quickly because of this.

Overall it's a nice liner for the price (>€10). Creamy, great pigmentation and beautiful colour. Would I buy it again? Probably not, I think I'll keep my eye on the lookout for a more stable liner that isn't quite so soft.  

Thanks for reading
