Maybelline EYESTUDIO Vivid and Smooth Eyeliner Pencils- Shade Metallic Silver Review

Fever, fever go away, DON'T come another day :P See I promised to be good, and so I am back, with another review. I have been eyeing the Maybelline EYESTUDIO Vivid and Smooth Eyeliner range for quite a while and as you might know, I like to hoard eye liners so I decided to try the shade Metallic Silver from this range. Today I would be sharing my views on it.

PRICE:  Rs. 200

QUANTITY: Not mentioned. But I am guessing around 1gm - 2gm.

  • Vivid color and Smooth Application ensure that eyes will never be dull again
  • Available in 12 stunning shades to match your every mood
  • So easy to apply, you can now be your own make up artist!


MY EXPERIENCE: Maybelline Vivid and Smooth Eyeliner Pencils comes in a black bodied packaging with a transparent cap and a shade indicator at the tail-end. The shade Metallic Silver appears more like a gunmetal gray shade with a pearly silver sheen, on my eyes. The texture of the eye- pencil is silky smooth. It glides easily on eyes and requires 2-3 swipes to show up the dark color. 

It stays on my lids for 5+ hours with slight fading. It doesn't smudge/melt and is water-proof too. It is easily sharpenable but that leads to product wastage and I can never get the sharp pointed tip. I quite like the eye pencil, but the shade isn't always wearable. The pencil comes with the date of expiry engraved on it, which I liked very much, but it doesn't have the shade name written on it, which is a disadvantage. To sum it up,

  • Silky smooth texture that glides on easily.
  • The pencil doesn't melt like other creamy textured eye pencils.
  • Stays put on my lids for 5+ hours, with very little fading post 5 hours.
  • Smudgeproof and waterproof.
  • Sleek black bodied packaging, with the shade indicator and the expiry date engraved on it.
  • Comes in 12 different shades.
  • Economical and the quantity would last a long time.

  • The shade Metallic Silver doesn't suit me always. It would go well with smokey eyes, but on it's own it looks a bit drab.
  • The shade name is not mentioned anywhere.
  •  Need sharpening, leading to product wastage.

VERDICT:  I would like to try the Gold shade next if I try this range again. Yes I am weird at choosing shades, but I want to gather all possible shades of eyepencils, not necessarily from this range though. It is definitely budget friendly and good quality eye pencil range, so you can give it a try.

RATINGS:  4 out of 5 

P.S. If I sound weird, blame it on the fever! :P
