Maybelline New York Unstoppable Highlighter in Fluffy Cloud - Limited Edition for Spring 2011

Maybelline New York's Unstoppable Highlighter in Fluffy Cloud

Right when I had lost my favorite MAC Chroma pencil, I found Maybelline's  Unstoppable Highlighter in Fluffy Cloud with their limited edition display for Spring 2011 featuring products used during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.  This white eyeliner (though labeled highlighter and probably multi-purpose) was exactly what the doctor ordered.  There was even a $1 off coupon with the display!  Yay!

I just had assumed that this product was going to be a shimmering white retractable pencil  that I could use to highlight the inner corners of my eyes.  Well, like mom said, don't just assume.  I opened the top when I got home and was surprised to see that it was a pretty matte white.  Weird right?   But this actually turned out to work out better.  I have been using it a lot for many of my looks inspired by spring flowers.  See my Sakura-themed look here and more coming soon.

I'm pretty happy with my purchase, but I'm sad to see that this is limited edition.  It stays on the lower waterline really well and applies very opaque white.  I might have to go pick up another one from the display.  If you see it, act fast because there are only two per display and these are limited edition!

Do you use white eyeliner?  Are you ever surprised to open a product and get something different from what you thought?
