Maybelline Master Smoky Shadow Pencil Review

Tuesday, October 22, 2013

Hello Beauties, 

How are you all today? I hope all of you are having an amazing day. Fall is full on! Leaves are falling, and it is getting chilly outside. I love fall, it is a beautiful season. When fall comes, you all know makeup companies come out with their fall collections. Today I have for you two of the eyeshadow pencils from Maybelline Fall 2013 collection.
So lets start with the packaging, these are mechanical eye pencils that include a smudger. These came out with the fall 2013 line. There are a total of six shades available. These are said to create a perfect smokey eye look.
The pencil side is creamy and goes on smoothly. The texture is easily blendable. These do crease if applied without primer, so be sure the primer you are using is good quality. The staying power of these are alright, if applied with the primer they stay longer. 
Smoldering Violet: is a plum purple shade. I love using this shade as an eyeliner.
The one thing I don't like about these shadow pencils is the smudger part. I am not a big fan of it. It just really does not work for me very well. I have not used it for blending my eyeliner. I love just applying the eyeliner by itself

The next shade I got was Blue Blaze, it is a shimmery navy blue color. I love to use this as a eyeliner.  
Below is how they looked like when blended with the sponge tip applicator. Again, I am not really a fan of that.
Over all I am not really impressed with these. The only reason I purchased them to use them as eyeliner. These work great as eyeliners but just not as a blended eyeliner. I would recommend these if you are looking a for low end eyeliner. 

Well this is all for today! I hope you enjoyed this post. Let me know in the comments below what you think about these. I also did pick up another shade, I will do a review on that too! Have a wonderful day!

  1. Great review Annie! You're not alone, I've heard a few other people say that they don't like these either! I don't think I'll be picking these up.

  3. The shades are pretty. I have heard the smudger basically just wipes away the liner.

  4. I feel the same way about these liners. I have the black and purple one too and the smudger is not the greatest in the world. It really only worked a tiny bit if I used a primer and applied a lot of product on to get that smoky effect. Great review. :)

    1. I love the eyeliner it self, just not the smudger. It basically wipes away the eyeliner. Thank you for reading!

    1. The eyeliner it self is great but the smudger is not! Try it out if you will only use the eyeliner :)
