Product Pick #10: Maybelline Unstoppable Eyeliner

I think that eyeliner might be my desert-island beauty item. It can be used in a number of ways, although I stick to the classic use. Since I have been married to the one I use for so long now, I’m sure there’s a loyalty component as well.

I started using eyeliner in college – whatever brand of black pencil was fine, and Alex taught me to use a lighter to soften the end before application to the under eye area. I cannot believe this practice did not result in injury or accidental fires. In the years since, I have tried a number of eyeliners, but my long-time favorite is the Maybelline Unstoppable Eyeliner. (It is featured in the picture of me in the sidebar of this blog.)

What do I love about this product?

  • Multiple color options
  • No need for a sharpener, just twist it up
  • Waterproof and smudge-resistant

Seriously, it is the best for people like me, who aren’t looking for that sharp-as-a-knife precision you get from felt-tip liners, but are committed to the smoked-out lower lash line for any and all occasions. The color options have helped me age sort of gracefully by dialing things back a bit, I now use the color Pewter instead of Black, to soften the look a bit. I do pull out the black when I am going out, and it is MUCH more severe. The Pewter looks dark in the image, but trust me, it’s much different than the black.

I currently purchase my Maybelline Unstoppable Eyeliner on Amazon, since I find it difficult to find the Pewter in many stores. I really do recommend it for anyone looking for some eyeliner to give you a smoky look with staying power.

I recently bought this very good Maybelline Unstoppable Eyeliner in Espresso and I put it on only my right lid to test how long it would stay on without fading and or smudging and after 8 hours it was still totally the same,I even slept with it on and only after 12 hours did it smudge slightly. The color is a great black brown especially for those of us with light,warm toned skin,and even though it doesn’t have a built in sharpener and or smudger, I use the ones from my Rimmel Exaggerate Eye Definer,which I also really love but they unfortunately don’t have a black brown shade.I don’t usually intentionally smudge my eyeliner though.

Also I don’t understand why some women say that you can’t apply this eyeliner on the lid in a precise line without intentionally smudging it.
