Maybelline Line Stiletto Review

I love eyeliners! Eyeliner, together with concealer, are my ultimate makeup products. I could never leave the house without my under eye circles concealed and my eyes lined. With my small, chinky eyes, I really love how eyeliners enhance my eyes depending on how I put on my liner. With a liner, it can make my eyes pop - wider, longer and bolder. 

I am getting sick of my current liquid liner which is the Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner because whenever I do my wing, the wing flakes off fast. It is not a nice sight to see. Even if I love the brush tip applicator, the UD 24/7 Liquid Liner is a miss for me.

I have never found a good liquid liner from the drugstore and I've been dying to try out Maybelline Line Stiletto and L'oreal Lineur Intense Carbon Black for their similarity to the Lancome Artliner. I have never been fond of the stiff felt tip applicators but I was willing to give these felt tips a try for their "bendability" and for the awesome reviews I have heard. I purchased the Maybelline Line Stiletto in Blackest Black since I couldn't find The L'oreal Lineur Intense Carbon Black in the store.

I really don't have high hopes with this product but it turned out to be way better than I expected it to be. The felt tip applicator is nice - it doesn't tug on my skin unlike those stiff felt tip liners. I could easily control the application of the liner.  I must say that the tip is not really needle-like thin but it is fairly easy to make thicker and thinner lines that I believe even a newbie at liquid liner application would be able to do a nice winged liner in a few tries. Since I purchased it in the shade Blackest Black the color is really very intense. It also dries fast once applied to the skin. 

Another thing I really like about this liner is even if it is not waterproof, it does stay a lot longer than I expected it to be. It also doesn't flake but I do notice a bit of fading after 6 hours or so after application. The  slight fading really doesn't bother me as long as there is no visible flaking since flaking is really noticeable. 

For its packaging, it is very sleek and classic looking. For the price of $7.49 (I got mine for $3.74 with buy one get half off at Rite Aid) it is a good liquid eyeliner. I really do like this product and this is a definite hit. 

Ladies, hit me up with your favorite drugstore eyeliners. :) I would definitely would like to try them out too!


  1. i totally agree with how it doesn't tug on your eyelids, it's more spongey in a way. i like to put this on my purse for touch ups, however i always lose it -_-'

  2. i absolutely love this eyeliner! i prefer this over the lancome artliner and l'oreal lineur intense.. also just recently tried the physician formula one, this blows all of those out of the water :) this is still my favorite!

  3. @jill/AquaKO hope you won't lose it again! :)

    @Khristine/BeautyAndTheBrute I won't say this is my favorite but it really does do a great job. :) Oh, I dropped by your page and I love it!
