I hate having to give a product only two stars, but I really feel this is an honest evaluation of this lip liner. I received the color brick red, which is a very pretty, darker red color. The color and the convenient apparatus that you turn to get more product to come out are the only reasons this product even received two stars from me. I have major problems with this liner. First, when I went to apply it for the first time, it broke right off as soon as I touched my lips with it. This happened multiple times for me during application. It’s a brittle product that can only be applied from a straight angle rather than a side angle because it will break right off or slide back down into the tube. Second, the liner still allows feathering/bleeding of a lipstick product. Most liners prevent against this, but I don’t feel this liner does a great job at preventing this. Lastly, I just feel like the application of this liner goes on extremely dry. It isn’t a moisturizing, velvety smooth application. The liner is so dry it was tugging at my lips as I applied. I would not ever purchase this product on my own.

  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.

Review for: Gone Griege more...
So this is seriously the first time I've worn lip liner and lipstick that were so moisturizing and had such lustrous shine, everyone thought I was wearing lipgloss! I did a triple take in the mirror after applying :)
I received two of the #ColorSensational produxts by #Maybelline in my #InfluensterVoxBox: a self sharpening liner in shade 104 Gone Greige and a lipstick in shade 055 Taupe Seduction. Both were in the nude family but id say they're darker nudes with a berry colour mixed.
I began by exfoliating my lips and adding conditioner for a few minutes before wiping off and adding a dab of concealer to lighten my lips, act as a primer and to help the liner hold lip colour in place should it be too dark. Next I simply traced the outside of my lips with the super sharp liner tip (there was no need to tug on it and I only had to go over the bottom of my lower lip twice. Since I wasn't sure if the lipstick would feather or fade I also made an "X" in the middle of my lips and lightly filled in with the pencil under my cupid's bow.
Next I followed with the lip colour and it was stunning; see my review for the Taupe Seduction from Maybelline. It was a perfect match and fell perfectly in line with the liner.
I opted not to use a brush, applying it directly on my lips over the liner. The pigment was awesome and it distributed itself fairly evenly with the first swipes. I used my finger to even up the corners of my lips and then applied a second coat to the middle of both lips for extra shine factor!!
Oh yeah- I didn't read that this was a long wear formula but I had it on for at least 5 hours and for the most part it lasted through a couple of beverages and a popsicle. It didn't wear off in a strange way either...it just got a bit less shiny then lighter.
I love lip products but normally go really light nude, pink or randomly vibrant red. This trial has completely changed my mind ladies and gents.

Review for: Purely Nude more...
I received the Maybelline Color Sensational® Shaping Lip Liner with my Maybelline color sensational Shine compulsion Lipstick in the shade taupe seduction and it matched absolutely perfectly! The liner is so rich, creamy and extremely pigmented! It glides onto your lips like butter! It added depth to my lips and really complimented my lipstick! I would highly recommend this lip liner to all of my friends! A great pro tip is to shade in further along your lower lip to give a fuller ombré effect!

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.

Review for: Very Cherry more...
I received this product complimentary from Influenster for my review, and was surprised that it came with the pairing lipstick of Pink Fetish (which turned out to be red not pink). I prefer the lip liner to the lipstick in this line from Maybelline. It stays on for a few hours, I fidget - drink, blow my nose, touch my face, etc - so it inevitably ends up smeared, but it did last for a bit and made the lipstick stay better (it still slide off quick). Those who like a matte finish would like this more than using the lipstick which is moisturizing but doesn't stay at all. I just prefer a lip pencil rather than this lip liner for a more long lasting matte finish

Review for: Pink Wink more...
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.

Review for: Very Cherry more...
Its my first time trying Maybelline lip liner, and I am so impressed! I love retractable liners anyday over pencil liner, they are more hassle free. And the formula is very creamy it doesn't pull or tug on the lips. Applies very nicely and the pointed tip helps for precise application around the edges and corners. The best part is the stay, I applied this for a party and I had a heavy dinner of tasty but oily food. And when I came back home hours later, the liner was still on my lips (you can see in the images)! Highly recommend!!
I received the product free for testing purposes but my opinions are honest & unbiased.

Review for: Very Cherry more...
This formula is dry compared to other much loved lip liners that I have. It is not very creamy but it does get the job done. It has a nice pointy tip, and I like that it's a twist up and doesn't ever need to be sharpened! I felt like I could line my lips and shape them well. I applied it all over my lips prior to applying the Shine Conpulsion Lipstick, which is so hydrating and creamy that it completely took away the dryness of the lip liner. I would recommend because it's so affordable, and the dryness can be combated with any lipgloss or lipstick.

Review for: Pink Wink more...
I was happy I received the lipliner as well because I’ve always had smaller lips so anyone with small lips knows how much of a pain it can be to try to evenly apply the product and with the lipliner it made things a lot easier. My only problems though was the lipliner doesn’t stay sharpened for long so you have to apply more on an angle at all times and switch sides to keep the point remaining.
So finally.. I had my lipstick on from about 7AM until about 2PM. I noticed when I would drink stuff only a little bit of the product would transfer onto my water bottle but not as much as some other non matte lipsticks have for me in the past! finally when it came down to me eating the lipstick started to come off but some of it did still stay on and my lipliner! I think I will buy more of these lip liners in the future since they are budget friendly 😀
