This eyeliner has been with me for quite some time now, so I really do not remember specifically when I was able to purchase this. I wanted one that is easy to work with, a really fine-tipped one, so I can wing out my line perfectly.
Then I saw this on a Maybelline counter, and it grabbed my interest instantly. I never had an eyeliner pen before, so watching makeup gurus using them convinces me to buy one. Luckily, I was able to persuade my mom to buy me one. Alright, I noticed that within the past few months I have been asking my mom for money to buy such things. -_- Maybe because I have spent most of my extra money for our thesis and for food (which has been my stress reliever for the most stressful semester in my whole college life). Dear, I haven't even able to drop anything on my piggy bank because of that, ugh. I promise this semester I will try my best to save up!
Now on to the review:
Price: Php 399
Availability: All leading Department Stores/Maybelline stalls
When they say hypersharp, they mean HYPERSHARP! The tip of the brush is very pointed you can make a very fine line with it! And it doesn't hurt unlike other liquid liners. Perfect for that delicate skin around our eyes.
Also, the brush doesn't lose it's shape with time and regular use. I have used this liner a couple of times already and my, look at that! It still looks like new.

It seems to me that using only one stroke, the liner isn't that much pigmented to the extent that you cannot see your skin through the line anymore. However, it is very buildable, you can reapply it until you're satisfied.
Overall, I love this eyeliner. It is easy to use, and that felt tip is so awesome since it is really fine and doesn't lose its shape. Also this eyeliner does not smudge and very easy to remove. You may notice that within the day (of wearing) there will be small gaps wherein the color faded, but you can fill it in with ease because of the very easy-to-use brush.
