No Longer Walking Dead with Maybelline’s Eye Studio Ink Pen Eyeliner

Mascara? Yeah, whatever. Eyeliner? Can’t leave home without it. I know, I’m pathetic. I never wanted to be one of those gals who couldn’t leave the house without makeup but I look like The Walking Dead without eyeliner. And I’m not even kidding. A little bit of black eyeliner gives my eyes definition and makes me look more awake. But liquid liner?

Liquid liner is the bee’s knees and butterfly’s wings if you know how to use it correctly. Don’t even think about asking me for tips, dude. I am still struggling with applying it. Maybelline is hitting us with a new one and by George, I think I like it!

The tip has a darn good point.

Which is a good thing. A liquid eyeliner with a dull point or a point that collapses too easily can make for ineffective application. And ineffective application will have you looking like a 2nd grader did your makeup. Which is no bueno. This black liner looks really black. Which I love.

It lasts throughout the day without many problems. It did flake on me after I rubbed my eye a bit, but I’m used to that happening with most eyeliners.

-Affordable. Depending on where you go, it’s between $6.99-$7.99.
-It has a nice and intense black color.
-Nice point-y tip that makes it easy to draw both thin and thick strokes.
-Long lasting.

-Can flake if you rub your eyes.
-Dries out if you leave the top off for a few minutes.


Have you seen this eyeliner around? Whatcha think?

  • I normally like liquid liners. I think the price is nice. Plus, Looks good on you.

  • Wow that is super precise! Is that a foam tip on the end? My friend swears by the Kat Von D eyeliners because they have a tip that looks similar to that one, except they are bristles that don’t bend or spray out… super cool! I’m so pale that black eyeliner looks unnatural, but by-golly it looks so natural on you! You rock at applying that 😉

      Yep, that’s a foam tip. I’ll have to check out Kat Von D’s. And if black liner is too harsh, try blue, purple or brown. :)

  • Computer totally freaked out mid-comment, so sorry if this is a duplicate. Anyway, I have issues with liquid eyeliner. I just can’t apply it to save my life. I’ve been using Cover Girl’s Perfect Point eyeliner for years, but I don’t really love it, so I’m not sure why that is, LOL! Definitely looking for a new go-to eyeliner.

      Girlfriend, I feel your pain. I am STILL struggling to apply it. I find that the easiest way to do it is to “connect the line”. Make small strokes rather than trying to apply one long line.

    I must someone who has yet to master liquid liner..if you can do it..maybe I can to:)

    • Brittany

      I won’t tell you how long it took me to do that. 😉

    Wow that looks really pretty!
    Right now I have a Lancome Artliner and it refuses to run out or dry out lol. But I will def check this one out, esp since it seems less glossy than most liquid e/l, and I prefer matte finishes

  • I haven’t tried it yet. I did have issues with liquid liner, but I tried Urban Decay’s liquid liner and for some reason that one just works for me. And I can rub my eyes without flaking. It is one of my few holy grail products.

  • I swear with any other liner I have a steady hand with pens though, nope!

  • It looks really nice. I prefer pencils over liquid though Like Urban decay, they dont ever flake. P.s. im in the same boat, i can leave without everything but my eyeliner!

  • Looks so wonderful!!! have you tried the felt tip liner from Jordana? It’s really good as well!

    • Brittany

      Nooo, haven’t tried theirs. But will definitely check them out!

  • love a great liquid liner! i’m with you, i try to always have some type of liner on for sure

  • I love liquid eyeliner and the way it looks but it just love me. I haz no skills when it comes to this product. I cackled at your title too, I recently gave into the hype to see what all the fuss was about with that show.

  • It’s cool that these types of liners have tiny little points. I like to build my line thickness up little bit by little bit.

  • oooo I need to check this out, I am loving liquid pen liners!
