Maybelline markets this as a new eyeliner with a waterproof, smudgeproof formula. Having never tried it before I’m not sure what exactly has changed about it. Was the old one not waterproof!?
I can’t really say what different about the repromoted formula but I can share with you what I think of the new formulated version!
Maybelline Unstoppable Eyeliner is a twist up mechanical pencil design that has a nice rounded tip for application. The liner is marketed as a long wearing smudge-proof formula!
It might be a formula that oily eyes and lids like best but personally I found it too dry. It skips and tugs during application and the color I choose, Onyx, was very washed up once applied (it swatches pigmented but it looks almost blackish gray on my eyes). This might be great for a smoky eye as it does smudge nicely but I find application is uneven and looks less than polished. It also doesn’t have an intense color pay off on my waterline and a draggy application in this area. Unfortunately, the tip breaks off easily as well as my first application with it and the tip snapped right off and since the pencil does not come with a sharpener I was left with a dull point.

Overall, Maybelline Unstoppable Eyeliner is a cheaper eyeliner option at the drugstore but not the best one I’ve run across. There are so many eyeliners popping up lately for under $10 that are considerably better. This is an unfortunately a drier formula with a crummy application that tugs and skips on my lash line!
