Maybelline Hyper Glossy Runway Pop Liquid Liner Review and Swatches ; Shade “Tangerine Orange”

Maybelline has been quite a name in the beauty blogosphere in recent times, attributed to its launch of  new and innovative products back to back.  It has carved a niche for itself in the drugstore arena, making affordable cosmetics available to the masses without compromising on quality. The youngest baby on the block is this hyper glossy pop liquid liner, one can already fathom its capabilities from the name itself.

Guess ! shocking color , high shine ! Be assured of being the center of attraction !

The shade: Tangerine Orange, true to its nomenclature. Very bright and pop summery orange. It definitely requires some thought and effort to carry. Ideal for wear to parties , or if you want to mimic a bohemian look. A color apt to suit fun infused environment.

The Finish: Hyper glossy, metallic orange ! This one is bound to make one the center of attraction, by dint of its shocking color and finish. So, all those who are open to experiment , do try this out. It shall not let you down. I am loving this.

The texture and pigmentation: It is very much pigmented, but applies a little streaky. One needs to build it up to intensity with repeated coatings.

The lasting: It lasted for full seven hours on me, on primed eye lids, it did not swerve at all. Without primer , it wears off easily on my oily eye lids. So if you have oily lids, you ought to prime before putting this on. I swatched it on my hands without primer, and it did not budge. So, I guess beauties with dry eyelids, can try wearing it without primer and expect it to last.

The packaging: It comes packed in a very small conical bottle , and the applicator is thin and easy to apply. But as with all liquid liners, it does need some practice for perfect application.

Maybelline Color Tattoo in “Fierce and Tangy” Review and Swatch

I am pretty late in getting hold of these awesome Eye shadows . The shade which I wanted to get was “Bad to the Bronze”, but when I swatched all them, I found this one to be the prettiest of them all. Stay tuned for some looks with this 🙂 I couldn’t make time, else I would have done it today itself.

About the shade : Its a lovely, tangy golden orange which is quite wearable than what it appears on the tub. It has very fine shimmers embedded in it, which lends a wonderful sheen to it. Instantly brightens the eye socket and I feel awake. The shade would make small eyes looks bigger and more pronounced. Its made for dusky Indian skin I feel, where the contrast with the natural skin color is not so stark and outstanding.

The texture and pigmentation :  If applied with very light hands and sheely, layer by layer the intensity can be built up without it being streaky or cakey. Its a creamy, easy to blend goodie actually, best applied with fingers. The brush which comes with it is also good picks up appropriate amount of color, and very easy to pat and blend with it.

The Lasting : Seems to last forever, ateast 8 hrs on me 🙂

Price: INR 350, which I feel is pocket friendly

Summary: Go get it !! If your reading it now, don’t wait 🙂 It ought to be in your vanity ! Atleast one of them, when they are touted be “budget Mac paint pots”. Great for beginners and college goers.

Product Score: 4/5 , points deducted because tends to get streaky if not applied with soft hands.
