Maybelline|LINErefine liquid liner review

I’m just going to put it out there, that I genuinely thought every liquid liner on the market was made to achieve a wing/cat flick. They’re not. Well, this one is the first one I have come across that isn’t. Maybelline LINErefine- Liner express is one that I had never ever heard of. I couldn’t tell you if it’s an old product or if it’s just been launched. But, being the sucker I am, I bought it without any research. Don’t be me. Don’t do that.

The Product

The product is housed in the silver part of the tube and contains a little ball which you violently shake around before application. That means, of course that the black end is all handle. In my opinion a bit of a waste of plastic. In the picture, it looks as if the tip is really small and pointed. It’s not. I think it’s a kind of sponge as you can bend it from the base, but still somehow manages to hold its shape and not fly out in every direction.

One of the things I do really like about this is the colour. Nowadays, it’s not very often you find a liner that is as black as this, unless you use a sharpie. Even though the formula is pretty watery, I wouldn’t say it makes it any harder to use. The applicator soaks up quite a lot of product and I haven’t had any problems with it dripping. Drying time is a bit of a pain in the arse though. Your probably looking at around 5 mins for it to completely dry.

If the liquid liner your looking for is to achieve a fleeky wing, this isn’t for you. But if your still rocking the emo look, this is amazing and does have really good staying power. I don’t hate it, but it’s absolutely not my favourite at all. As we speak, it’s living it’s last days in the liner graveyard. So say a little prayer for it.


As always, I’m still on the hunt for a liner thats black and pointed. So leave your recommendations below. Thanks for reading! If you liked this post, you can follow me here for new ones twice a week.
