My Experience with Maybelline New York Hyper Matte Liquid Liner :

β€’ Packaging: If you have owned any of the Hyper glossy Liquid Liner, you instantly know how similar the packaging is. The eyeliner bottle is white in colour, has name written on it and ThankgGod comes with the same long perfect brush. The brush screws back perfectly and the packaging is travel friendly.

β€’ The perfect brush shape I spoke about: The long brush gives a perfect grip to draw the eyeliner thin, thick.. the way you want it. The brush handle size makes it easier to apply. The brush has fine bristles and glides smoothly on the lids.

β€’ Pigmentation and texture: The eyeliner is pigmented to the core and is jet black. Single stroke and the liner has a opaque punch on lids. The texture/consistency is thin and runny.

β€’ The finish: Now the finish is not super matte, not glossy, but matte with the sheen. Looking at the swatches I was expecting this to be an out and out matte finish like the ones from Lakme gives. However its not. While applying the liner it appears glossy then it dries down quickly and appears matte after about 1-2 minutes.

β€’ Performance: The liner dries quickly and once it sets it does not smudge. It stayed almost whole day without fading and smudging on my eyes. Only I lost the wings by evening, I mean wing of winged eyeliner: P. The splash of water dint do any harm either but gets off if you rub rather flakes off. You can remove the liner with just water So it isn’t completly waterproof. It passed my gym test as well. It does not budge. Though my eyelids are oily very rarely eyeliner transfers due to heat, so this also managed to stay intact, did not transfer due to heat. The performance wise its really good and kept its family name intact.

Affordable, Great packaging, Fantastic applicator, Jet black, Lasts whole day, doesnot smudge

Not completely waterproof, not completely matte ( If you expect complete matte finish)

Last Words:Β 

All in all I would say yet another great affordable launch by Maybelline which delivers great performance. It stands true to almost all, other than being waterproof claim. If you want an out an out matte eyeliner you might be little disappointed but other than I don’t have any cons to list out here. Give it a try if you liked the finish.

Have you used this? Which finish do you like Matte or Glossy?Β

    Maybelline is really coming out with some decent products. And unlike Colobar, its pricing is still very budget friendly.

  14. I’ve tried the matte and the satin from Maybelline but I don’t think it’s the same formula of yours because my eyeliner’s name is Master Ink, the package is black rather then white and the applicator is felt made but thin… anyway I like satin or shimmer finishes πŸ™‚ I like particular eyeliners

  31. Love the review, I have never used liquid eyeliner, i feel more confident with eyeliner pen xxoxo

    1. Same here Kayla. Quality and affordability goes hand in hand with MNY πŸ™‚ Thanks for the visit πŸ™‚

  34. Sounds good but I really like my liquid liners to be budge and waterproof! I think I’ll skip this as Thai/chinese/korean makeup brands make some amazing eye liners at super cheap price! xx

  35. I love the packaging, the matte effect looks good,

    1. Yeah its cute πŸ™‚

  36. Great affordable option. Maybelline has great products to offer πŸ™‚

    1. Yeah and they come up with new ones every now and then πŸ™‚

  37. The hyper liner is my HG liner. This being the matte version of that has raised my expectations a lot!

    1. This is good.But not out an out matte, that is only disappointing thing πŸ™‚

  38. Nice review swathi ur pictures are soo sharp and clear what camera do u use to click pictures.

    1. Thanks Annu. It’s Nikon coolpix L320 and sometimes I use my Windows phone lumia 640XL.
