Maybelline HyperGlossy POP Liquid liner Tangerine Orange : For the Bold and The Beautiful (Review & Swatches)



I said I wasn’t gonna lose my head

But then pop! Goes my heart
*Pop! Goes my heart*
I wasn’t gonna fall in love again
But then pop! Goes my heart
*Pop! Goes my heart*
And I just can’t let you go
I can’t lose this feeling...............

.. Remember "Music & Lyrics" ?? Hugh Grant.. as the lead vocalist of 80's something fictional rock band?? and his pelvic thrusts each time he croons "POP" !!?? Well, ever since I heard of the launch of Maybelline POP hyperglossy liquid liners, I have been singing this on my head *insert imaginary pelvic thrusts here*. 



Maybelline says ~
Want to get the Catwalk trends to your sidewalk?
Maybelline New York presents the HYPERGLOSSY RUNWAY POP LIQUID LINER for eyes that shine with the boldest design!
It’s hot off the runway... and guess what? It’s easy to wear every day.
Dare to wear the glossiest vinyl line in the latest fashion shades this season!

There are 3 shades from this range ~ Tangerine, turquoise and khaki. Tangerine was sent to me by the brand for review and honestly when I first saw this my instant reaction was.. "what the heck am supposed to do with this? " Literally, Orange on my eyes is not so happening. I think Khaki is a more wearable shade than this one. At one point of time, I had thought of sending it back.. but then I swatched it.. and boy ! it was orange but it was gorgeous. It has these tiny golden shimmer to it, which is just AWESOME !! So, I googled  " How to wear orange eyeliner" and found some pretty wearable looks. :)

Before going to the PROS n CONS lets have a closer look on the shade~


Swatch~

In Natural Light


With Flash


This is a really bold shade and definitely does not fall into 'wearable' category. In fact it is literally a eye-POP-ing color. After going through hundreds of google images, I tried two looks with this ~ A bold look and a comparatively more subtle aka wearable look.

*Some pics went a bit blurry because my hands were shaking,please excuse*

THE BOLD LOOK


For this look, first I lined my eyes with a black liquid liner and winged it (more than normal) to add a bit drama.Then applied the Maybelline Tangerine eye liner on my upper lid, leaving some free edges near the lashline. Also I did not extend it all the way to the inner corner or the outer wing.Lined only the outer one-third of the lower lash line with black liquid liner.Added two coats of mascara.

THE BEAUTIFUL LOOK



For this one, I applied the orange eye liner all over my lids. Just that ! and smudged it with fingers. When you smudge, the color becomes more subtle and the golden shimmer become more visible. Am sorry again, but my camera failed to capture it ! Maybe I will do the look again and upload. At the end, I just lined my eyes with a black liquid liner,close to my upper lashline and made a tiny wing near the outer corner.

The picture below again is horribly blurry.. and you need to ignore the chicken pox scars ~ My right eye (left on the picture) is the Bold look and my left eye (your right) is the wearable look




I understand the eye swatches are not upto the mark. But I want you all to try these looks. Orange eyes, don't seem to be scary anymore. ! :D :D

Oh ! and I think a light pink lipstick will go well with these.. what say??


Price ~ 225 INR 

Let's take a look at the PROS and CONS now ~

What I Love about Maybelline Hyperglossy POP Liquid Liner Tangerine Orange ~
  • Smudge free and water proof
  • Intensely pigmented and opaque. I did not have any issues while using it over black liquid liner.
  • Does not flake. 
  • Gorgeous orange shade with very fine golden shimmers
  • Easily removed with a makeup remover ( and no there is no yellow glitter all over your face)
  • The packaging is similar to the original Maybelline hyperglossy liquid eye liner. Slender black packaging with the labeling done in orange. I love the thin fine brush.The long handle gives better control
  • Affordable and easily available
What I don't Like about Maybelline Hyperglossy POP Liquid Liner Tangerine Orange~
  • Orange is not a comfortable shade and I don't think there will be many takers for it ! Khaki is however much safe. 
  • Sometimes, it peels of when more than 3-4 layers are used.
My rating : I should give it a 5/5 because of the amazing quality. But for this particular shade I will give 3.5/5

Final Verdict :  If you love orange liners.. go ahead..this is the most affordable liner in India at present. Honestly Its not a repurchase for me, I will rather pick up the Khaki one !

*Pop goes my heart* ............... :)
