Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner Review

I have wanted to try a gel liner for a really long time after hearing rave reviews about them. When my collection 2000 extreme 24 hour felt tip liner ran out (reviewed earlier) I decided what better timing! I decided to try out the Maybelline one first to see if I liked it rather than going for the more pricey options like Bobby Brown.

So far I have to say I really like this eyeliner! Its like painting your face its really fun and very easy to use.

Its a great pigmented colour which is very black. It slides on super easily and is long lasting. It is obviously a good thing that it is so long lasting, but one of its downfalls is that its quite difficult to get off, it literally won't budge! If you make an error (like I often do) it can be quite a pain trying to fix it, I usually use a cotton bud dipped in moisturiser and that does that trick.

Another thing that I'm not keen on is the brush. It was great to begin with but after a while it has gotten really dry and its hard to apply the liner with it now, so I would recommend washing it regularly to stop liner drying it up or buying a more expensive liner brush.

Overall a great product for the price and one I will definitely carry on using. It is the best eyeliner I have found for keeping a really strong colour all day and not budging or having to reapply. It is also really simple to use and a great product for beginners!

Heres some pictures of me wearing it...

Lots of love,

  1. I have this but I stopped using it cause I could never get it thin enough like how you've gotten yours. I really like it but can't find a small enough brush for it.

    Yours looks really lovely :)

    1. Thank you :)! Yeah I know what you mean getting a thin line can be quite tricky with the brush they provide... i think jemma kidd liner brush is meant to be quite good! I always use a cotton bud to neaten it up and it works really well! x

  2. I have this and loooooove it! Nearly as good as Bobbi Brown :D

    1. I want to try Bobbi Brown so much! Need to save the pennies haha x
