Maybelline Master Precise Skinny Gel Pencil


Today, I’m reviewing the Maybelline Precise Skinny Gel Pencil. As anyone who’s read my blog before knows, I’m a huge fan of Maybelline’s eye products1

This new addition to their collection is a fabulous one! It is a twist up pencil, which is my favorite kind. I love the convenience of not having to worry about sharpening it. Also, does anyone else always stab themselves in the eye with wooden shards with the pencils you have to sharpen? Just me? Great.


Another notable feature of the Master Precise Skinny Gel Pencil is how skinny it is. Surprise, surprise, I know. It measures only 1.8 millimeters, which allows you to get a SUPER thin line.


The thin line is convenient for lining your lid, tight-lining your inner lid, and lining under your eye. It’s also easy to build up for a more dramatic look.


The one downside to the pencil’s thinness is that it easily breaks if you wind it out too far. I made this mistake the first time I used it. However, if you keep it pretty short, you won’t have any issues!


This pencil glides on really easily during application, and it doesn’t smudge throughout the day.7

The gel liner claims to be waterproof, but I haven’t put that to the test. Thankfully, it comes off relatively easily when I use my Garnier Micellar Water to remove it.


I’m wearing the Master Precise Skinny Gel Pencil in Defining Black, which is my go to eyeliner color. It also comes in Brown and Gray.


I paired this eyeliner with my current favorite Maybelline Mascara, Lash Sensational, and they work together great!


As you can see below, the Maybelline Unstoppable Liner is at least twice as thick as the new Master Precise Skinny liner, which could be good or bad based on how much drama you want.  The good thing is both of them can be built up.


I’m still a huge fan of Maybelline’s eye makeup products, and I don’t expect that to change anytime soon! I definitely recommend the Maybelline Master Precise Skinny Gel Pencil if you’re in the market for a new, affordable, great eyeliner!

Beauty Blurbs: Maybelline Unstoppable Eyeliner in Onyx


For as long as I can remember, I’ve been using Maybelline Unstoppable Eyeliner in Onyx as my go-to black eyeliner. It’s been around forever, and I can see why. It glides on easily without tugging on my eyelid, which makes application a breeze. If you’re new to eyeliner or wanting to try it out, I think the Unstoppable Eyeliner is the perfect tool because it goes on so easily.


I always use it along my top lash line, and I often use it to line my lower waterline as well. The formula doesn’t irritate my eyes regardless of how long I have it on (though I never sleep in my makeup and neither should you!).  It also never smudges onto my eyelid regardless of what eyeshadow I’m wearing, which I’ve encountered with other eyeliners.


Another great feature is that you simply swivel it up to “sharpen” it. I hate eyeliners that I have to sharpen with a pencil sharpener because I always feel like I’m going to get a splinter in my eye or something. Anyone else? No? Just me? Ok. Anyway…the width of the liner is great for creating thin lines, but it can easily be layered for a more dramatic look.

3Adding Maybelline’s Unstoppable eyeliner to my eye routine really makes my eyes stand out, and I love that I can count on it to stay put and not smudge all day. At around $5.99 most places, it’s a great purchase in my opinion. Hope you agree!
