Maybelline The Colossal Liner Black Review, Swatch, EOTD
Whether you are a makeup lover or not one thing that you must be having in your bag is an Eye Liner.

Packaging:- Maybelline The Colossal Liner Black comes in an all black plastic pen packaging, similar to other felt tip liners. The liner has a super long felt-tip which is softer and flexible than the L’Oreal Super Impact Felt Tip Liner I have used earlier.
My experience with Maybelline The Colossal Liner Black:-
Shade: Maybelline The Colossal Black Liner is dark black liquid liner with a felt-tip for application. The liner takes a few seconds to dry down but it looses a bit of its intensity during the process so one can go for reapplication to get that rich black color on lids. It dries to a creamy matte finish but it is not as matte as a Lakme Insta Liner.
Formula: Maybelline The Colossal Liner has a very thin liquidy formula, thinner than the L’Oreal Felt Tip Impact Liner which is why it takes few more seconds to settle down. The liner tends to slip and spread a bit on a creamy surface so make sure you powder your eyes after applying concealer before starting with this liner.
Application: The Colossal Liner has super fine felt tip which makes it easier to draw thin liner and provide more precision than any of the liquid liner brushes. If applied with a bit more pressure once can easily get a thicker line. The soft tip glides easily on lids and doesn’t cause any itching or scratching feel.
Staying Power: The liner sets within seconds of application but the formula is not smudge-proof and on oily lids it tends to transfer easily on the crease area. So, it could really be task to handle it on oily lids especially in summers, keep a compact or a neutral eye shadow handy to keep the area dry and matte. The formula is not water-proof but can be termed as water-resistant as it doesn’t melt when washed with water until rubbed with fingers.

Recommendation:- Maybelline The Colossal Liner Black is rich black liquid liner with a flexible felt tip for a precise application. The formula has a good color payoff but will need 2 swipes to show the rich black color on lids. It takes few seconds to dry down completely and set to a creamy matte finish. It doesn’t transfer and smudges easily on oily lids so have keep the eyes powdered to make it last longer. A smudge-proof and water-proof formula would have made it perfect but if you are makeup beginner and find it hard to handle liquid liners with bristles this felt tip liner could save you.
