Maybelline Ultra Liner Waterproof Liquid liner Review-Dark brown shade

I am a sucker for dark brown liquid eyeliners, and over the years, i have just used Elle, Lakme for liquid eyeliners. But i never found a dark brown shade in them, so i got it from Maybelline.

Product description: (From the website)


• Waterproof liquid liner delivers all-day wear
• No skipping, no smearing
• Precision brush for perfect application
• Safe for sensitive eyes and ophthalmologist-tested                                                                                                                                                                                             • Contact lens safe


Start at the inner corner of your lid and apply along your entire lash line following the contour of your eye. For a more dramatic effect, apply slightly heavier at corners and line under lower lashes from mid-eye point to outer corner.  Removes easily with Expert Eyes® Moisturizing Eye Makeup Remover.
Price: 225 Rs/-
My experience:
1) Absolute dark brown, i love the dark brown matte color that it delivers. I used the black one also, but the black didnt impress me.
For black's, i prefer my Elle
2) Water proof and stays put on for 8 hours, i have a habit of splashing water on my eyes, after every 4 hours, and it survived even after that. I must say i dont vigorously rub my eyes.
3) I like the brush, its good for getting perfectly lined eyes
4) I had no irritation

1) Its pricey for an eyeliner, i think
2) Only 2 shades, brown and black, i would have preferred some kind of purple shade...I would have sure shot bought it.

It is overall a nice product, but need to experiment more with colors, and the pricing needs to be good as well.
