Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner Review and Swatches

Prices vary
$9.99 at
~$6 - $8 at drugstores and Walmart, Ulta

"WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT Now gel reinvents liner:• Oil-free formula holds highly concentrated pigments in a clear gel base• Smudge-proof and waterproof for 24 hours• Most intense line for lasting drama• Safe for sensitive eyes and ophthalmologist-tested• Contact lens safe"

Packaging is glass, but it's not really bulky or heavy so it is travel friendly.
It comes with a brush, which in my opinion is awesome...more so than the liner I think.  -_-

One thing I did notice is that the packaging is quite deceiving.  There is quite a bit of excess glass below the actual pot of product.  It contains .106 oz, 3g so about the normal amount for a gel liner.

The other swatch is the same liner in the color Aubergine

There are two reasons I don't particularly like this product...

  • It does not wear well on my oily lids and I usually have a black line in my crease after a while 
  • The Wet n Wild liner is about half the price and works a lot better (trying not to sound biased!!) 

I think it is a good eyeliner, but you might wanna watch out if you have oily lids

Deep black color
Relatively cheap
Comes with an amazing brush

Smudges and transfers on oily lids
