Inexpensive liquid eyeliner that stays on and on and on.....
Jan 31, 2010
Pros: Inexpensive, easy to apply, deep shades, lasts for many hours, doesn't flake, run or fade
Cons: Dries very fast so mistakes have to be fixed super fast, not many shades
The Bottom Line: Maybelline Lineworks Ultra Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner impressed me. It wears for hours and is dramatic. It dries fast so mistakes must be avoided. Once it's on, it's ON to stay!
I love bold eyeliners and am trying different shades other than the standard black. I have brown eyes and decided to try deep brown liner for a change. I picked up some Maybelline Lineworks Ultra Waterproof Liquid Eyelinerin Dark Brown to try and I love it. I went back and got the darkest black shade because I still cling to the old black liner standby. Still, this shade looks good and it lasts for hours without budging.

This liner comes carded. The tube is smaller than a mascara tube and cylindrical, It is silver/gray with a black top that screws off to reveal a very fine brush.
I rarely line my upper lids because I can never get it right. I always line my lower ones though and I like definition, a deep shade, and long wear.
I tried Maybelline Lineworks Ultra Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner not expecting much because it wasn't expensive and Maybelline is very hit and miss for me. The liner applied very smoothly and was very deep. I liked that. I had no problems getting a smooth, straight line. I even did my upper lids a few times and didn't make a mess.
The liner starts out as liquid but quickly dries. Very quickly. If you make a mistake, you have to fix it fast because once the liner dries, it's on to stay.
Maybelline Lineworks Ultra Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner doesn't flake, smear, run, or fade at all. I put it on in the morning and it is exactly the way it was 16 hours later. It never even starts to lighten up. I could actually sleep with it on and wake up with a great looking line. And I have a few times. I know, I know, take your makeup off before bed. I try.
I am a contact lens wearer and have had no issues with wearing contacts and using this liner. It has never caused my eyes any sort of grief. It stays on through rain, humidity, tears, and splashing. I haven't full out swam in it but I have showered with it on and it stayed on but did lighten a bit.
When i want to remove Maybelline Lineworks Ultra Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner, I use eye makeup remover. I can scrub it off with my usual cleanser but I don't want to subject the skin around my eyes to that. It comes off just fine with an eye makeup remover pad or a cotton round soaked in eye makeup remover.
The dark brown color is very dark but doesn't look black. You can see the brown in it. It looks great when I wear brown eye shadow. I still prefer the black though because my lashes are black and I love that drama. Both wear the same, it's a matter of shade preference.
I tell ya, I have tried many, many eyeliners and Maybelline Lineworks Ultra Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner is one of the longest wearing ones I tried. It's inexpensive but boy does it stay on! Buying Info
Maybelline Lineworks Ultra Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner is available at drugstores and mass-market stores on and offline. The price varies but it is only around $5.00-$6.00 a tube. And it lasts a long time too. You can buy a three pack of the same shade for about $12.00 which is a real steal if you can share with someone. You won't go through three tubes for ages!
I am impressed with Maybelline Lineworks Ultra Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner. It is easy to use, cheap, and wears incredibly well. It is dramatic and will not flake or run. You do have to be careful to fix any mistakes really quickly because the liner dries almost instantly but that's a small inconvenience for the long, dramatic wear. 4 stars.
