For years, the Maybelline Hyper Glossy Liquid Eyeliner has been my go-to eyeliner . It lasts on your lids forever and is good for any college / office going girl. The brand launched it’s matte version which I have been using  for a while and will review today.

Packaging: The packaging is similar to the Hyper Glossy eyeliner, except the fact that the tube of the liner is white in color. The product being really small can be carried anywhere. But make sure you secure the cap pretty tightly since the product dries off quickly.

My take on the product: I purchased the eyeliner simply because I was impressed by the Hyper Glossy version. It is jet black, matte and you can create the perfect wing or even a tiny line with the thin precise brush; it dries off within seconds of application. Be careful with the brush though, I dropped my brush clumsily and the bristles were completely destroyed.

I am not too sure about the 24 hour claim made by the company, I’ve never used it for that long but I did use it for around 10 hours and it stayed put without flaking. It is completely waterproof and sweat proof, it won’t transfer on your lids. You can remove it using soap and water if you don’t really want to use makeup remover, it comes off in small flakes and won’t give you the ‘panda eyes’ when you take it off.

When I bought my first bottle; it dried up within a month. I use eyeliner daily and the previous Hyper Glossy eyeliner bottles lasted me 2-3 months and the quantity offered was the same (3 gms). So I went ahead and purchased another bottle and the same thing happened again !

Upon asking my friends and searching online, I came to know that this is happening with everyone, the bottle dries within a month and you can’t really use the product to full capacity.

  • Waterproof
  • Jet black & matte
  • Non transferable
  • Affordable


  • Product dries up in the bottle rapidly


Verdict : A

 Price : INR 325/- for 3 gms 

Recommendation : I recently purchased my 3rd bottle because I love the finish and longevity this product gives. It’s the best matte liquid eyeliner available in the Indian market. Hopefully the company does something about the product drying up quickly in the bottle.

Nice review! I am not good with such liners… I like pen styled ones. But I will surely check it out coz of it’s matte texture <3

The bristles are pretty thin of this liner. It’ll work for you similar to a pen liner. :)x

i love the hyper glossy, its been my staple for years too. maybelline do the best eyeliners i think, the hypersharp is great too. i want a matte liner so i’ll give this a try, its a pity that it dries out so quickly!

Absolutely worth a try just for the finish it gives, if you keep the cons aside! :)

Absolutely a value for money and affordable! :)

It sounds like an excellent liner, aside from that unfortunate drying issue. I wonder if there is a fault in the package design?


Swathi August 3, 2016 at 3:12 pm

Yup I love this too. This seriously dries tooo fast in the bottle, otherwise this tiny thing is Nice review :)

Nice review :) Heard a lot of appreciation about this product. But I fail to wing out my eyeliner using a liquid liner’s brush :’-D


Simran August 4, 2016 at 4:30 pm

But, i think this liner might help you do that due to its small brush with thin bristles.
Cheers! :) x

I really really like Maybelline hyperglossy. Gave this a try as I prefer Matt liners. This seemed fine but dried up too soon


Simran August 14, 2016 at 3:14 pm

I hope the drying issue is taken care of.
Thank you for your comment :) x
