Maybelline Master Duo 2-in-1 Glossy Liquid Liner - Black Lacquer

Maybelline recently launched their new Master Duo liquid eyeliners, and today I have the shade Black Lacquer* to share with you! As you might know, I love liquid liner, so I was really excited to try this one out.   The neat thing about this liner is the duo tip. Depending on how you hold the wand, you'll either get a thick or thin line!


I actually like the packaging of this liquid liner, the base is wider so the bottle can stand up on my makeup table. The wand has a felt tip, which I find makes application fairly easy. If you're scared of liquid liner (as I know a lot of girls are!), I think this one from Maybelline applies easily.

The formula of this liquid liner is good, but it's not amazing. The colour is black, but I would have preferred to have seen a darker, richer black. This liner stays on my lids for the majority of the day, but then at around the 7 or 8 hour mark it starts to flake off. It doesn't irritate my eyes, but it is something to note. 


Overall, I think that this is a good drugstore find, and the duo-tip is very unique and handy! This isn't my all time favourite liquid liner, but if you're looking for a drugstore option, I would recommend this one. Now, I have also tried the shade Violet Luster, which I really did not like. I found the colour very watery and transparent. If you want to see swatches or a full review on that shade, please let me know! So, the Master Duo line seems to be hit or miss (at least for myself), but if you're looking for a black liquid liner from the drugstore, this is a good option!
