Review & Swatches: Maybelline Master Smoky Shadow Pencil in Smoking Charcoal


Maybelline Master Smoky Liner in Smoking Charcoal
One of Maybelline's newer releases includes a line of smoky shadow pencils - a hybrid shadow and eyeliner formulated to create the perfect smoky eye. Equipped with a tapered-tip pencil with medium thickness and a chunky smudger sponge, Maybelline's Eye Studio Master Smoky Shadow Pencil doesn't look like it will be anything other than an inflated eyeliner. I had to put it to the test!

Smoking Charcoal is a deep grey without any shimmer or sparkle in sight. While it's pigmented, the texture isn't super creamy - not something that leads to easy smudging. As per the instructions, I applied a thicker line along my top lash line as well as my water line for good measure. When using the smudging sponge to blend the product out, I found that it was pretty stiff and difficult to properly blend a product that is already on the thicker side. The lasting power is where this product really shines. If you can get past the fact that this might not be your go-to drugstore shadow pencil, it makes for a great long-lasting eyeliner. After 10 hours, the liner was fully intact with pigmentation going full-force. While it didn't last on my waterline, few things do so I wasn't surprised. 

Overall, Maybelline isn't innovating with their new shadow pencil design. The texture of the pencil and smudger aren't the most conducive for a full on smoky eye (without loads of tugging on your delicate eye area) but if you want a liner that lasts until you are ready to take it off, this isn't a bad option for $6.45.
