Happy Accident

by - June 11, 2011

I picked up the Maybelline Unstoppable Eyeliner in Onyx last weekend in Kmart for $7.49 USD.
I meant to grab the L’Oreal Infallible eyeliner but I messed up LOL. Anyhow, since I bought it, I was curious to see if it would live up to its claims; smudge proof, stay-put, and waterproof.
I have been wearing it all week to work. I have to say it does live up to it claims...for the most part. It hasn’t smudged and it stayed put. I never really had to worry about water on my face this week so the water proof part hasn’t been put to the test.
The Unstoppable Eyeliner is a pencil liner and it went on easily and was pretty dark. Just do not mess up because I did and had a little wing in the middle of my eye. I tried to smear it off and it didn’t move so I covered it up with some paint pot and reapplied some shadow. I was in a hurry as I was getting ready for work. No time for mistakes LOL.
 I did notice that it does disappear from my waterline around the 3 hour mark. But that only means it last about 2 and ½ hours longer than my regular eyeliners. So I can live with that!
My eyes were still defined at the end of the day.  I put it on around 7:30 am and get home around 6 pm and it was still there. I didn’t even have to worry about proverbial raccoon eyes I get from most eyeliners. You know that smudgy shadow under the eyes from a long day of wear. I should mention I live in Canada where humidity is not a factor...yet. So we will see how it holds up to that later on this month if the weather forecasts are correct :P.
It is easy to get off at the end of the day. I just hold my cleansing wipe on my eye for a few seconds and move it back and forth gently, swipe a few more times and off it comes. No need for oil makeup remover that I usually need for waterproof mascaras and liners.
I will do a comparison once I finally manage to get L’Oreal’s Infallible Eyeliner. LOL I hate when I do that; plan on getting one specific item and get the wrong one by accident. This happens more than I like to admit HAHA.

  1. Haha, I do the same thing with picking up the products ALL the time! Once I thought I was buying black mascara and ended up with a tube of black lipgloss...what?!? Needless to say, that's only been used at halloween.

    Good to hear it's easy to remove. I hate when I have to use the oil based removers...it just leaves my skin feeling greasy.

  2. HA that would have pissed me off LOL I am glad you got some use out of it.
    I am stupidhead sometimes when I shop - I can't tell you how many time I got brown mascara instead of black. Most times I realize it before I open it so I can return it. LOL
    I did grab the L'Oreal Infallible today at Walmart. Right one this time :D
