Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner

 
 
 
 
 
 


I have seen a few of these gel eyeliners on the market so thought I would give it a go to see what it’s all about. I chose the Maybelline version because there was a special offer on when I bought the Express Volume Cat Eyes mascara.
The pot itself is quite small but a little goes a long way. It comes with a brush for the application, it is tapered at the end so that you can apply a small amount or angle it differently to get a thicker line. Ideally it would come with a thinner brush so that it can be built up – but this brush is a good midway option and also good for the bold looks there are at the moment
I am not sure why it is called a gel, it has more of a cream texture rather than a gel (a gel makes me think that this would be a light eyeliner but that is not the case as it produces a strong look)
It is very easy to apply – infact a bit too easy that you could over apply! But it definitely is a good tool to get more creative with your eyeliner! I have always used liquid eyeliners in the past but I think for me that it will now be replaced with this one – thumbs up.

  1. I love this but think a thinner brush would be so much easier. I cant go out the house without eyeliner on but like it to be subtle! I end up with quite a thick line most days as I get too eager and forget how easy it is too apply. Still love it though xx

  5. I wear this when I want something to last all day or all night. It has great staying power but I prefer liquid as Its more defining and I find it has better colour pay off. I've had my pot since it first came out and I'm not even close to denting it.

  7. I really like this liner too! I agree the brush is a bit too thick so I always end up with a really thick line... now just use a different brush :) x

  10. Been debating on trying this for a while! The Bobbi Brown one is also excellent. Gel liners last FOREVER too!

  11. I have this eyeliner, and I just love it. I've been using an Avon Eyeliner brush with me and that works great.

    1. Very easy! maybe a little too easy because you can over do it if you are not careful!

  27. I havent tried a gel eyeliner yet but I probably check out this one next. I just use liquid at the time because I think its faster -but of course cream liner gives a different look.. so I will try it! (great blog! I love make up soooo much!!)

  28. Wow, looks great and affordable! I have so much trouble getting a good line. Any suggestions for getting a nice, clean line? Thanks again for the comment!
