Maybelline Vivid & Smooth Eyeliner Peacock Green Review

Maybelline Eyestudio Vivid and Smooth Eyeliner in shade Peacock Green

I am very fond of applying kajals every day specially when I am going out but I rarely apply eye liners. I know they do an extra radiant look not only to eyes but also to face and overall makeup look but since applying liquid eyeliner is such a pain for me, I avoid using them. Not only their application, I find them difficult to remove as well even with my all time favorite Biotique Almond Oil Cleanser.

Recently I saw Maybelline Eyeliners in amazing shades at a very affordable and also heard some things about it, so thought of trying it. the best thing I like about this brand is that it gives really good quality products at a much affordable price within the budget. I remember I bought many of its products like Maybelline Volum Express Hypercurl Waterproof Mascara, Maybelline All in One Compact Powder just because they were too cheap to buy compared to other high quality brands. Surprisingly most of its products turned out extremely well.

Recently I bought this Maybelline Vivid and Smooth Eyeliner Peacock Green just because of one main reason that it comes in a pencil form. I was amazed to see its awesome shades and actually felt applying eyeliner would be really easy with this. Just then I ordered this in shade Peacock Green and here is the review on it.

Maybelline Eyestudio Vivid & Smooth Eyeliner Review

This Maybelline Vivid & Smooth Eyeliner in Peacock Green comes in a form of a kajal pencil. Though its not retractable like Maybelline Colossal Kajal but like a simple kajal that needs to be sharpened. This is how it looks unsharpened.

Sharpening the pencil is definitely one of the pains. Every time I take out the liner to apply and at the final stage I realize the pencil needs some sharpening. So it takes a hell lot time when I am already in a hurry. As you know no matter how much time we take to get ready, we are always in a hurry. But still I would say I prefer this more than retractable pencil since this is much easier to apply than those and also prone to less breakage as the retractable kajal pencil tends to break with just a little effort. This has happened with my Maybelline Kajal once.

Now coming to its application part, I would say this Maybelline Vivid & Smooth Eyeliner Peacock Green is easy to apply but it requires more swipe for a dark deep pigmentation look. I had to swipe it twice with some effort to get the desired look. Take a look at the swatches below with different swipes.

This shade Peacock Green gives nice dark glossy shade in two swipes and a dark pigmented shade on three swipes. First I could not make out which shade it is, whether Peacock Green, Forest Green or Olive, since all these shades appear almost similar and this pencil has no colour shade name on it. I didn't like this thing at all. The Eyeliner shade color and number should definitely be mentioned on the pencil, otherwise it becomes very difficult to figure out the color shade after few days of purchase.

However I finally saw the on the Maybelline website that Olive was little on the darker side, Forest Green was a perfect green and this Peacock Green had a blue tint in it which was not in the former two shades. With just one swipe the shade appeared dull. It might look good on extra pale eyelids, mine eyelids are little dark, so I had to swipe it twice to get the desired look. I used this Maybelline Vivid & Smooth Eyeliner Pencil in Peacock Green on my eyelids in the afternoon, after which I went for shopping, then for movie-where I even cried little because of emotional scenes but to my surprise nothing happened to this Maybelline eye shadow pencil till the end. It did starting fading away after few hours but did not smudge or slipped giving a horrified look.

Then I washed it with water gently and it did come out little but still some part was left which required little effort to wash and I removed it using my Biotique Almond Oil Makeup Remover. So yes this is nice smudge proof pencil and waterproof also to some extent.

Overall I would say this Maybelline Eye Studio Vivid and Smooth Eyeliner Pencil is definitely a nice substitute to liquid eyeliners, since these are easy and smooth to apply like the name says, easy to carry, easy to remover and also comes at a very affordable price with many color options.
