  Maybelline Color Sensational® Lip Liner  is right up there withe the best of the best lip liners- that's a BIG statement but let me explain why. I have incredibly discriminating taste when it comes to lip liners. First and foremost, wooden lip pencils? Out of the question. It's the 20th century, the days of sharpening my lip pencils should have left with Hammer Pants and curled bangs. The second lip liner faux-pas? The hard clay-like ones that nearly tear off your skin as you're trying to apply a nice, even line to prevent your lipstick from bleeding. Maybelline Color Sensation lip liner as neither of those things, and I fell in love with it! The liner went on with a smooth, steady glide- another thing that makes me irate are those super thin lip liners that break the moment you apply any pressure, so most of it ends up in the sink on somewhere between the cracks of your hardwood floor. Not this! It had a thicker consistency but went on as smooth as butter- no smashing it down onto my lip line to get any pigment from it. It never felt heavy, nor did it settle into find lines around the mouth area, but stayed perfectly in place.

I was really excited about this product at first. It was pigmented, glided on smoothly, and gave my lips crisp clean lines. I liked the twist-up applicator that eliminated the need for a sharpener, something I ALWAYS never seem to have for some reason. The pencil also contained a generous amount of product for the money, which is always welcome and appreciated.

However, after having this for only a few months it has already started to dry out. The color is still rich, but I have to press harder, resulting in lines that seriously look like I lined my lips with one of the kids' crayons. Bummer. Of course, I could have received a faulty product in which case I would recommend this completely but I would rather pay more for a product that I can use for a longer duration of time.

Let’s start with the major con of the product to get it out there. The pigmentation (for this color at least...) is just not there. I know this lip liner is not suppose to be extremely pigmented due to the lip stick it is suppose to be paired with BUT I had to do three swipes just to get a decent color payoff. Maybe it is just this color but I was not feeling the pigmentation. On the other hand the I heard the reds were amazing so I wont judge the whole lip liner collection based on one bad color. These liners are also super creamy and soft, probably the best liner texture I have ever tried! Which makes me want to love them even more! I highly recommend trying them, maybe just the more vibrant colors!

As a bonus to Maybelline Color Sensational® Shine Compulsion Lipstick , I had the privilege of also testing out their  Maybelline Color Sensational® Shaping Lip Liner in Pink Wink. It was as glossy as the lipstick and matched well.  Since this #lipliner was more of a neutral shade on me, I will also try it under other lipstick shades as a base, to keep my #lipstick in place.  ;-)

This product was given to me for free by Influenster for testing purposes.

Review for: Brick Red150 more...
I am already a die hard lover of Maybelline’s lipliners, I believe they’re one of the best at the drugstores and they’re even a lot better than a lot of my high end lipliners and this one did not disappoint, the retractable liner makes it so easy just to line your lips and the beautiful formula makes it to wear it just glides on your lips like a dream, it does not feather what so ever which just makes it 10x better than it already is! I received the shade “Brick Red” complimentary from Influenster in exchange for my honest review and I just have to say the red is absolutely stunning. Reds are one of my favorite lip colors to wear and this one did not disappoint, it is such a beautiful just classic red! If you guys are looking for a beautiful affordable lip liner look no further because!!! This! One! Is! Literally! Perfect!!!!!

I’m glad when I received my VoxBox it came with a lipstick as well as the lipliner as for this shine compulsion lipstick it’s absolutely necessary to have a lipliner! This one worked great to define my lips and keep the lipstick from moving around. The color matched perfectly as well. The only issue I had with the liner is that it is very soft so the pointed end gets flattened very quickly. Just make sure not to use too much pressure with this lip liner as it isn’t necessary and will help prevent that! I’d absolutely recommend this lip liner, especially to go along with the lipstick.

I received this in a VoxBox from Influenster. I don't normally use lipliners, but received this for free to try out.  The color is nice, gives a strong red look that heightens the color of any red lipstick you'd wear on top.  It does drag a lot, which makes applying neatly a little difficult.  It is very matte and can make your lips feel dry afterward.  I put the Shine Compulsion lipstick over this and that helped with the drying, but if you were wearing a dry lipstick over this, your lips would definitely feel harsh.  Overall I like it, but I won't be repurchasing.

When I first opened the box this came in and saw the color of the top for this pencil, I was pretty happy. It looked like it matched the Undressed Pink lipstick color I got in the Influenster box almost perfectly (which for me is a "your lips but better"color). I do love the color of the lip liner as it blends in perfectly with my lip color and the formula is very easy to work with. The biggest issue I had with this is the glitter 😣 I'm just not a big metallic lip fan and that's almost what this product does. I used it under different lipsticks and it basically turned all of them into a metallic lip. If you are into that though, this product will be great for you because you can turn your favorite matte lip into a metallic one for whatever occasions. Would recommend for the glitter lover but all matte seekers....this is a no.

I received shade 104 Gone Greige in my voxbox from Influenster. It was easy to apply without getting clumpy or dragging. The formula did help my lips look fuller and blended nicely with the lipstick they sent with it, Shine Compulsion in Taupe Seduction. The color of the liner is like a nude grayish mauve, very versatile and looks good on its own or would go great with many nude lipsticks. I just wish it stayed on longer, it was feathering and fading after a couple hours. I wouldn't recommend for activities involving food and drink.

I received this product free from Influenster in the Maybelline Vox box. I was pleasantly surprised when I tried this lip liner. I definitely fell in love with the color because I could wear it with a lot of my previously owned lip products. It glide it on my lips nicely and didn’t smudge or move throughout the day. The wearability is great even through eating and drinking. It looks great by itself with just some Chapstick, and look great with lipstick. I will definitely be purchasing other colors of this one.

I have been eyeing these clear lip liners for some time now. And although they are definitely intriguing to me. I have a question since I have many unusual colored lipsticks that there are no liners to match has anyone who has used this noticed if it blocks your lip color from bleeding and feathering does this product act as a barrier that keeps color on the lips?
