Maybelline Unstoppable Eyeliner Review & Swatches

Maybelline Unstoppable Eyeliner

Maybelline Unstoppable Eyeliner was re-released alongside Maybelline Doll Eyes Mascara at drugstores for Fall 2014 and having never tried the formula before I decided to grab up one to try.

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 Eye Pencil

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!

See my Best Drugstore Eyeliner post for some of the better recommendations that can be found out your local drugstore! Sadly, Maybelline Unstoppable Eyeliner didn’t make the list!

Tried it?

    The old one SUCKED. It was supposed to be a replacement for Great Line (the best liner EVAH that I lost count of how many times I repurchased) and that was kind of like saying that Spam is a substitute for filet mignon and you’ll never know the difference.

    Horrible application and HORRIBLE staying power. It was all over my face in under 2 hours. And yes, they marketed it as waterproof. Some Maybelline names create happy nostalgia (Blooming Colors!) but this ain’t one of them. The fact that I almost threw something at the screen when I saw it confirms that naming anything this – evem if the product is different – may have not been the best marketing choice.

    Hi! I was wondering of these four eyeliners which is best for the waterline and tight line (since I’m to cheap to spend my money on high-end products)
    – L’oreal Silkissime Eyeliner
    – Maybelline Masterdrama
    – Milani Liquid Eye
    – L’oreal Infallible Gel Laquer Liner
    Thank you!
