My Favourite Liquid Liner

37 comments



If my memory doesn't fail me, which it so often does, I haven't written a post in reverence of this product before (which is utterly sinful). Winged liner à la Lana Del Rey was one of the huge contributors to my eighteen-year-old self wanting to dabble in makeup and thus the trial and error of finding the liner that is "just right" commenced. Liquid liner is my weapon of choice and at the rate I go through them I'm not on board to invest, which is where the incredible Maybelline Master Precise comes into play.

This liner has an ultra thin, tapered nib that is perfect for getting into the inner corner, but with a little added pressure also creates quite a thick line. This means that with some practice you can do the lining portion of your eye in a matter of a sweep or two. The wing, however, still remains a little tricky even with a product as great as this, but the style of the applicator definitely helps with getting a sharp and fine point.

The formulation is amazing. It's super black with one coat, but not as liquid as other super-opaque formulas so a sudden blink will not ruin your hard work. Once this liner sets it's not going to crack or budge from oily lids alone (especially when paired with a primer), however it is not waterproof and I have lost my wings before from tears. This might be down to eye shape and my wings beginning quite close to my outer corner, however it is not messy and seems to fade rather than run.

I highly recommend this liner to beginners or lovers of the liquid format. What liquid eyeliner would you recommend to me?

  4. This is also my weapon of choice when it comes to eyeliner. Honestly don't know where I'd be without this thing when wanting to do my 60's eye look.
    Very good choice!

  8. I love liquid liner, especially in one form so this sounds ideal. I love how precise the nib looks xx

  9. It really reminds me of the stila one in terms of the precision!

  10. I agree! It's so weird though, a lot of my friends find gel pots easier. x

  11. I think the nib is definitely similar to the Stila one!

  12. It's so, so amazing! It's always sold out where I live too, so I have to snatch them up while they're around. x

  13. Thank you! And thanks for letting me know about the giveaway. x

  14. Definitely! I can't say that this is "holy grail" as there are many high end ones I'm sure are incredible, but for the price this comes pretty close! x

  15. It's so weird how everyone finds different methods easier! I will definitely check out your blog. x

  17. I've never tried this particular liner, but right now, I'm loving the eyeliner pen from Mac. It's perfect because you can apply it quickly and easily. It's great for a cat eye, since it has a super thin point and angles well (if that makes sense).

  18. The Stila one is my HG but it gets ruined whenever I fly in an airplane (becomes too watery) so I might look at this one as a less expensive alternative for when I travel. Thanks!

  19. Love the look of the tip on this one! I'm a massive fan of the Sephora Collection precision liquid liner and the Lorac liquid liner - definitely worth trying! xx

  20. Anything by Lorac gets me excited, so I'll definitely have to check out that one. x

  21. It's weird that it's texture changes upon flying! Definitely give this one a go, and even if the same happens it is such a lesser cost. x

  22. I'm sure MACs offerings are incredible! I've actually never seen this product in store, I'll have to have a hunt for it next time I'm at the MAC counter. x

  23. I know! I love finding people who are in love with it as well. x

  26. I've been using a waterproof one by essence - it was so cheap, only £3 or so and I've had it for about 3 months, using it almost daily and it's not ran out yet. It's a winner for me for sure!

  29. If it's a smudging issue try and find something water proof that dries really fast! x
