Maybelline Color Show Eye Liner Ocean Blue Price and Buy Online


Hey Girls,
How many of you like colored eyeliner? I am a huge fan of color liners in all forms and textures. I prefer stick liners to liquid ones more for their versatile application and nature. The liquid liners are generally advisable not to wear on the waterline, whereas most of the the pen liners can be used safely on the waterline as there is no chance of liquid spreading in the eyes. Today I will discuss about my recent encounter with Maybelline Colorshow Eyeliner in the shade Ocean Blue.

See it through my Eyes

These color show eye pencils had launched about 2 to 3 years ago. I was not interested in these as didn’t hear good things about it. But secretly wanted to try the nude shimmer shade always. I got this Ocean Blue color as a gift only recently. Makeup gifts really excite me. So did I get impressed with these and bought the nude shade? Read on to know.


This one is a plastic retractable pencil liner with click lock cap. Each shade has a color coded cap, while the body of the pencil is black. As always I don’t like the way Maybelline puts all the product info on the plastic wrap and not on the product.  Some information like expiry, price  should be on the pack itself.


Now let me spill the beans, this one is not soft and smooth. This is HARD. It hurts my eyes when I try to glide it on the eyes. The other day I tried using the shade as an eye shadow and it behaved miserable on the eyes. I hate the texture to be honest. Its comparitvely easier to apply on upper lash line, while I need to struggle by pulling and tugging on the lower lash line. I never ever take the risk of applying this hard pencil on my waterline.


The shade is bright ice blue with hints of shimmer. The shimmer is fine and doesn’t spread on application. This shade is pretty suitable for all Indian skin tones and will flatter fair to medium girls. The shade is neither to dark blue nor too light. I really enjoy wearing this color as it is not common like navy blue. It looks dreamy and all good things.


The pigmentation is decent and buildable.  One single swipe gives streaky finish. On gliding at least 2 times, true color is obtained.  The pigmentation would have been lot better if it was soft and buttery. The color is buildable and shows up well after two to three swipes.

Staying Power

This is the best part of this eye pencil. The color stays on for whole day on the eyes. With that I mean eight long hours. The texture being hard and the color having sheer color pay off, I didn’t expect it to stay that well.

What I like about Maybelline Color Show Eye Liner Ocean Blue

  • Retractable pencil
  • Color coded packaging
  • Amazing icy blue shade
  • Super staying power

What I don’t like Maybelline Color Show Eye Liner Ocean Blue

  • Hard and draggy while application
  • Eyes might hurt when trying to glide on the color
  • Pigmentation could have been a lot better

Recommendation: Yes, Just for the shade

NoM Report Card: 2.8/5

Final Verdict

The texture is hard and doesn’t glide easily. The staying power is decent and the shade is gorgeous blue.  This is one of the few disappointing products from Maybelline. Range is not Recommended. The only two things good about this pencil is the shade and the staying power. The shade is a gorgeous rare blue to find. You can try it only for the color.
