    Maybelline Hyper Glossy Liquid Liner in Electro Shock

    There are makeup products that I buy and feel somewhat impartial towards, and then there are makeup products that I feel like I would baby and treasure forever and ever.

    This Maybelline liquid liner? It might have just earned its place in the latter category.


    Because, I mean, just look at the beautiful blue hue:


    If you're not a fan of electric blue as I am, you might be feeling like this liquid liner is not all that great but for me, it's a big winner. Priced at a mere RM 19.90? No contest, babes.

    But is there ever a makeup product that is a perfect ten? Let's list down the good and the bad of Electro Shock:

    The Good
    • GORGEOUS bright blue colour
    • Has just the right amount of glossiness to stand out
    • Thin brush, great for creating a flick
    • Stays on for hours after it dries up
    • BEAUTIFUL shade of blue wait this is the same as the first point, sorry
    • RM 19.90, which means it is totally AFFORDORABLE

    The Bad
    • Liquid formula is a little wet; might irritate the eye a smidgen, and might bleed out a little as well
    • Thin brush isn't sturdy enough, a little difficult to get a clean straight line

    I'm going to declare that the good massively outweigh the bad here, and that I am basically in love with Maybelline Hyper Glossy Liquid Liner in Electro Shock right now.


    The first time I used this liner, I applied it way too much and a little too close to my lashline which resulted in rapid blinking. The formula is really quite wet so to avoid irritating my eyes, I would make sure to wipe off some of the liquid formula on the inside of the tube before using next time.

    I love the intensity of the colour and the full-on glossy effect makes the liner stand out beautifully, but at the same time it's not too bright or too out-there of a shade, making it wearable enough. A sturdier bristles on the brush would be preferred but it's a small issue for me; I haven't tried this out yet but I figured I could easily use a different small angled brush, rub that against Electro Shock's thin bristles and apply on my lid using the angled brush, as I would with a gel liner.

    I'm seriously considering getting the gold and green liquid liner from the same range now, as I love this blue one so much. Plus, at RM 19.90, they're a definite steal.


    Products I'm using:
    - Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua in B44 Beige Ambre
    - MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NW35
    - Rimmel Stay Matte Long Lasting Pressed Powder in 005 Silky Beige
    - Matt Ramirez shadow in The Balm Meet Matt(e) palette (eyebrows)
    - Easy Wheezie shadow in The Balm Shady Lady (lids)
    - Sultry shadow in The Balm Nude'tude (crease)
    - Maybelline Hyper Glossy Liquid Liner in Electro Shock
    - Avon Aero Volume mascara
    - Bourjois blush in 74 Rose Ambre
    - The Balm Mai Billsbepaid lipstick
    - Avon Ultra Glazewear Lip Gloss in K301 Rich Raspberry

      1. From your review, I have a feeling you love this eyeliner more than I do! But it IS truly a gem, so it's completely understandable!
