Maybelline Master Drama Chromatic Liner Review & Swatches

Maybelline Master Drama Chromatic Liners

Maybelline Master Drama Chromatic Liner are a new soft gel eyeliner pencil available in array of Summer-y shades that just recently launched at drugstores.

I believe the Maybelline Master Drama Chromatic Liner is a permanent collection or at least I hope it is as these gorgeous liners are comparable to Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes at a quarter the price. However, they are in a display with the new Maybelline Summer 2014 Bleached Neons Collection so I question if they are or aren’t limited edition.

One can hope they are here to stay!

Maybelline Master Drama Chromatic Liner

Maybelline makes up for the disaster that is Eye Studio Master Duo 2-in-1 Glossy Liquid Liner and introduces this uber fabulous Master Dramatic Chromatic Liner.

This formula has a dreamy, creamy glide with an easy to smudge texture and vibrant pigmentation. I believe there are five colors available but in the UK and Ireland there are a few other shades we didn’t yet get which has me hoping when these go permanent we may just see those. These have an almost metallic finish with a quick to set dry down that lasts all day on my drier eyes and I can even swim in them without smearing, smudging, or flaking (I went to an indoor pool party on Saturday night and wore Blast of Blue without a hiccup!). You can sharpen them with an eyeliner sharpener as they are not a twist up pencil design.

You can count me surprised as I really thought these would be dry and dense but Maybelline proved me wrong by gifting us with a creamy formula that has a wonderful strong wear.

Loves these!

I see them being a smashing hit for Summer eye looks.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    uuu these seem more than promising after reading the review!!! I have you to thank for Pixi Eye Pens, so I will definitely check these out!

    • Isabella Muse

      oh ps if you need pixi liners they are 20% off this week on pixi’s website 😀 FF sale!

  • Deirdre

    Wow the colours on these are magnificently bright! Have you got a shot of you wearing them? BTW do you need someone in the UK to pick up some of the extra colours for you?

    • Isabella Muse

      hi deidre thank YOU you’re sweet 🙂 I actually had my best friend in London grab some more for me, she’s going to ship them to me! I couldn’t wait to grab a few more shades 😀 I do not have a shot but I’ll try to get one done for you! They are very vibrant and lovely 😀

    Love these colors, like emerald liners and teals anything but boring blacks and browns. My blue eyeliner collection keeps growing, I’m trying to use up stuff, but this stuff will be cheap enough it won’t break the bank, one of my favorite liners of all time was by Revlon grow luscious, in the emerald green, its beautiful and the staying power superb.

    Hey Muse! Thanks for this review!! I bought the silkisime eye liner after your review and I’m SO happy I did. So naturally I must now own these as well 🙂 Question: what’s your favorite eye pencil sharpener? I’ve tried several different brands over the years and feel like I’m losing half the pencil courtesy of crappy sharpening. Thanks again!

    • Isabella Muse

      YAY! so glad to hear it Elaina 😀 These are amazing, hopefully you like them as much as the silkisme! I know it’s a bit much for a sharpener but the Urban Decay Grind House is divine! ($10) it’s such a great sharpener and the only one i use!

      • Elaina

        That’s not very much considering I’m sure it will last me just about forever! 😄 Thank you again for being amazingly wonderful!!

        • Isabella Muse

          :-D! I’m glad you feel that way! It’s really an excellent sharpener! It has a nice sturdy pick as well!!!!! awww thank YOU! <3!

    I was at Walgreens nabbing the new LE Fergie lippies when I happened to see Mighty Magenta out of the corner of my eye in the Bleached Neons display. It was the last one in that shade…plus Maybelline was 30% off so…I gave it a try. I think my eyes popped out of my head when I got it home and swatched it. Holy butter formula and mega-pigmentation! One stroke, full coverage, glide-on formula. LOVE. After it set I tried to rub it off and it did not budge. I had to get a makeup remover wipe! Amazing!

    I ran back to Walgreens the next day and bought all the other colors except the silver one. Huge bonus: Maybelline was BOGOHO! I am thrilled to see exciting colors in such a great formula at the drugstore! Mighty Magenta is my favorite (makes my gray eyes pop like crazy!) but I love them all. 😀 I am super impressed with these. Yay, Maybelline!
