AMW Reviews: Maybelline Eye Studio Master Liner in WH-1

How's the second day of the week treating you?  
Don't we all dislike it when we look tired and sleepy during the day?  
One of the many few requests I get from clients are the following: 
  • I want to look wide awake.
  • I want to look like I have 8 hours of sleep.
  • Can you make my eyes bigger?
During the 70's, makeup artists would probably say: "Yeah right!  That's impossible!"  At present, aren't we lucky there are so many beauty products for us to at least "fake it"? :D

One secret weapon for eye brightening ---
White Eyeliner Pencil

Maybelline Eye Studio Master Liner in WH-1

Maybelline says ---
Bolder smoother.  Unlike any other.  Experience the power of cream with top-to-bottom glide.  Experience the new generation of liner.
  • Oil-free cream formula holds the highest concentration of pigments for more intense eye drama.
  • Smudge-proof and waterproof for 16 hours.
  • Most intense line for lasting drama.
  • Safe for sensitive eyes and ophthalmologist tested.
  • Contact lens safe.
AMW says ---
  • Inexpensive.
  • No need to sharpen.
  • Pigmented.
  • Doesn't irritate my eyes.
  • The pencil could get a bit hard.  (Read tips below on how to warm up eye pencils.)
Pigmented.  No need to sharpen.  Inexpensive.

  • Before applying any liner on your water line, wipe the extra tears with a clean cotton bud first.
  • Keep in mind that a little goes a long way, applying too much will make it look fake.
  • If the pencil feels a bit too rough on your sensitive eyes, rub the pencil gently onto your hands to "warm up" the product first before you apply it on your waterline.
  • Scroll down on photos below on various ways on how to use the Maybelline Eye Studio Master Liner in White.
  • For professional use:  Please wipe the tip of the liner with makeup wipes to prevent irritating your clients' sensitive eyes.
  • To make your eyeshadow pop, you can use the white liner pencil as your eyeshadow base.
  • For a more natural "bright eye" look, finish up by applying dark brown or black eyeliner near the lash line.  This method will make the eyes appear larger.
  • If the color white is too harsh against your skin, use a light pink or beige colored pencil.
  • Do this extra step in makeup removal to prevent eye irritations: Clean the waterline with clean cotton bud dipped with very gentle eye makeup remover.
Will I repurchase?

Overall effect

How would you use your Maybelline Eye Studio Master Liner in White if you own one?
I personally love using this for my waterline as it stays and gives my eyes the healthy, wide-awake look even with insomnia!  As for highlighting the brow bone and inner corners of my eye, I still prefer my Benefit High Brow, though way pricier, it's perfect shade works so well in brightening those areas!

  1. I used to own a white eyeliner but I rarely reached for it - I simply love black liner. I don't know why but it looked weird on me? I just applied it on my waterline. You're probably right about not putting too much of it though - that could be the culprit!

    1. Yes applying too much gives a super weird appearance! I get what you mean!

  2. that's a sweet product. would definitely try it out ;)

    1. I'm sure you'll love it! BTW< love your profile photo!

  3. It did a great job on the waterline! I wish they had fleshy tones so I can get away with looking awake without anyone figuring out it's a makeup trick :)

    1. I agree, that's once product quite difficult to find. I know Stila has the fleshy tone that we both want but I haven't checked Stila local counters pa :d

  4. What a nice and versatile product! And so cheap too!

    1. I am happy Maybelline is creating better quality products!
