I was using the Hypersharp liner for a long time now and I liked it quite a lot. It made liner application so easy. So when Maybelline came out with this Colossal Liner and I couldn't wait to try it out! A few weeks back I got it in the mail and after testing it out here's what I think :
"A definite must have in your make-up kit, get your inner Cleopatra out with Maybelline’s Colossal Liner. It comes with a 0.4 mm Flexi Tip Applicator which enables error-free and quick application. It’s empowered with Ink-pigment technology providing stunning, defining lines as well as intense color.
It is the perfect antidote to your eye liner woes!
Its smudge-free, quick-dry formula ensures long-lasting bold application.
Fade-proof, Lasts 12-hours long"
The liner comes in a slim pen form with a felt tip, which is firm yet flexible enough (if you get what I am trying to say). The Hypersharp liner has a sleeker body compared to this one with a tip made of fine bristles and this one has a felt tip.
The tip is fine enough to make super precise and thin lines and it unlike the Hypersharp (where it was a bit tedious to get thicker lines) you can make thicker lines super easily too depending on how you are holding the pen.
The pigmentation is great. You get a rich dark opaque black in a couple of swipes. I had tried out a few felt tip liners earlier and was never satisfied with their pigmentation, but the Colossal liner has completely changed my view. It does not flake off during the day, does not streak or fade.
It liner dries fast to to soft satin finish (which I love). It is niether too matte nor too glossy.
Sadly, the formula is not waterproof. It is water resistant though, and will surive a few splashes (provided you do not rub).
I cannot comment on how soon the pen will dry out as this one is fairly new. But I will keep you all posted :)

Overall, I liked the Colossal Liner quite a bit. The felt tip makes applying liner and making a precise wing too, so hassle free and easy. It would be great for beginners too & on days when you are in a rush. Maybelline always gets the eye products so right! :D
