Eyeliner is my favorite part of makeup as it helps to look your eyes bigger and beautiful. I have tried various variations of eyeliners that are available in the market such as liquid liners, gel eyeliner, eye-pencils, sketch eyeliners, etc but to be honest sketch eyeliners are my favorite among all. As they are easy to use and apply. Today I am gonna review the most famous gel eyeliner by Maybelline Lasting drama gel eyeliner. If I talk about this liner I have some mixed feelings towards it. So let’s see it is worthy or not to buy this product.
Packaging of the gel eyeliner
It comes in a cardboard box which is triangular in shape. Under that box, you will see a small container of 2.5 gm eyeliner with a black lid and a thin flat brush with soft and small bristles. We can say packing of Maybelline lasting drama gel eyeliner is quite impressive.
Pigmentation and color
This eyeliner is not as pigmented as it claims to be. In the container, it looks like a jet black in color but after applying it color looks dull and dark greyish in color. But talking about its texture, it’s smooth and creamy that can be easily applied in a single stroke.
How much it stays
We can say it is a long-lasting liner as when I applied this it easily lasts for more than 12 hours in a day on my eyes and it is smudge-free. But they claim that it lasts for 36 hours! Like seriously! How can an eyeliner last for 36 hours or who will wear it for that long?
Pros and cons of Maybelline drama gel eyeliner
- Its thin flat brush has soft bristles and that is specifically made to apply gel liner.
- Dries super fast.
- It is a creamy and smooth eyeliner which can be applied easily.
- It lasts up to 12-14 hours and it is smudge-free.
- Easy to create dramatic and thick eyeliner look.
- Not highly pigmented and does not provide intense jet black liner look.
- It is not easy to make sharp wing eyeliner look with the brush of this gel eyeliner.
- Not so waterproof.
Expiry time– 36 months from manufacturing date
So It is an average eyeliner for me. I like it as I mostly use this when I want to go out for a long time and as it stays on my eyes for a long time without smudge and does not spread all around my eye area.
