Review: Maybelline Gel Liner

4 years ago

Hey ALL! I hope you`re all having a great weekend and those of you in the U.S. great 3-day weekend!
Today, I have a review for you guys on the <strong> Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner</strong>
Lets get right into the review!
Get the precision & intense color of a liquid liner in a smudgeproof, waterproof gel formula by Maybelline. 24 hour wear.
This gel liner comes in a glass jar, with a plastic lid. It has 3 grams of product in it. I believe it is around the same amount as MAC fluid line correct me if I`m wrong. I think the packaging is nice it looks high quality. I`ve dropped it a few times on my tile floor it hasn`t even cracked yet. It also comes with an eyeliner brush, honestly this brush is a really nice brush, usually I hate brushes that comes with products, but this one is soft and it makes the best winged eyeliner ever! Its also super easy to control and use.
<strong> My Thoughts</strong>
As much as I would have liked to LOVE this eyeliner, I just didn`t. It was just not what it claims, and not anything like I expected.
-I look for black eyeliner, it has to be really BLACK and opaque. This was not it. The black is just not dark, and you have to go over it a few times to actually get it to a point where its dark enough. Its really light, which annoys me so much!
-This DOES NOT last 24 hrs, not that I`ve worn it for that long, but wearing it for a month now, in all sorts of weather this doesn`t even last close to 24 hours. It starts getting messy and smudges all over my eye lids by like 2 1/2 or 3 hrs. Messy messy!
-I do however, like this on my waterline, strangely this lasts for like EVER on the waterline of all places.
-Formula wise, its really thin, and takes a while to dry which is something I never had probs with with my other gel liners. It does go on really smoothly and it doesn`t flake off or anything.
<strong>Bottom Line</strong>
For around $10 I would skip this. The Wet N Wild gel liner costs $3 and lasts longer, and is just overall better. IF you want a good one then get that, or cash out another $5 and get the MAC fluid line. This was a waste of money and a dissapointment. If you want drugstore try Physicians Formula Gel liner too! It lasts a really long time and for the same price as this you get 3 different colors!
