Review: Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner

Hello beauties, I hope you all had some fun pranking family and friends on the 1st of April. Today I am bringing you a review of a new eyeliner I am now using. I bought this at a drugstore when I went out last week. As it always is, I went in because I needed to get the mineral powder which I am currently using and told myself I wouldn't spend much. Turned out, they had a discount on almost all the items in the store and when I saw this gel liner I just had to have it.

See the thing with me and liners is I am really bad at it. My lashes are really curly and putting on liquid eyeliner is just a big mess {like a kid with watercolours}. So once I found out about the gel liners, I knew this might just be one of my favourite products.

Because I needed an everyday shade, I went for 'Intense Black'. This gel liner comes in a nice packaging and an even better jar. Although glass makeup jars aren't my favourite items as I tend to be a bit clumsy sometimes, I could not help but wow when I saw the jar inside. I absolutely love the way it looks and the matte finish just makes it even. 

The gel eyeliner comes with a normal sized brush which is just the perfect shade. It allows me make thick lines as well as really thin lines {which I never thought was possible}. I absolutely love the brush and have been using this gel eyeliner ever since I got it. With the discount this product cost me approx €9 which in my opinion isn't bad since I get to use it for minimum a month. The packaging says 24 hours wear. Unfortunately, I cannot tell you if it lasts all 24 hours as I have not gone that long with makeup on, but I can definitely tell you it has 15 hours of staying on which means it lasts me all day while I am out.

I don't have any bad reactions or itching or anything from this product. Actually I have nothing bad to say about this product. 

I really do love this gel liner and I think it might just become a holy grail product of mine. Of course if someone could point me in the direction of something cheaper but as great I will definitely try that out too. Who doesn't like to save a penny here and there?! But for now, I am so happy with it and would really suggest trying it out for those who cannot just get the hang of a liquid liner.

Quick Summary
Likes: Packaging, brush inside
Verdict: Definitely repurchasing

Have you tried this gel eyeliner? Which is your favourite gel liner?

    1. uhh, that's nice. Might just be getting that one next. ;) thanks gorgeous. x

  2. I've always wanted to try a gel liner because I've only ever used pencil liner :)

    1. I used to use pencil liners up till about 6 months ago when I switched to gel liners. I just couldn't take it coming off so easily and looking so stupid by the end of the work day. x

  3. This is great! I love the fact that it stays on for at least 15 hours! Great review.

    1. Thank you darling. If you try it out, let me know if you like it as much as I do. x

  4. I definitely like this kind of eyeliner that you can paint on best. I feel like you get much better control over your line and it lasts so much longer. Right now I'm using one from Makeup Forever that I love, but I kind of want to try this one too :)


    1. I totally agree. I am sure the makeup forever one is great, if you try this one let me know what you think. x

  5. I purchased this last year and i still havent used it yet haha I've heard it's such a great product. I've just got back into doing winged eyeliner and i'll have to dig this out and start using it before it dries out haha :D

    Great post hun :)

    1. Great idea darling. A little tip I picked up along the way... If it is a little bit dry, dip your brush in some hand cream and then into the gel liner product and it works amazingly. x
