Review: Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Liner

Hello lovelies,

I got this a little while back and now it's review-time!

The Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliners come in seven colours and cost 10,99€ each. So much for the hard facts. :-)

I got "Ultra Violet" and besides the liner you get a brush as well:

I must admit I didn't use it, cause it seemed too "big". I usually use finer liners.

Let's see swatches:

Not a perfect covered line? Yep, well, there's the catch, we'll talk about it in a sec.

I think it's a fine product, but you really have to be careful how much you put on your lid. The first time I wore it, I really put on colour to get a lovely full-of-colour line....and ended up with a big imprint of that line on my lid..

The next time I used it, the swatch you see above, I REALLY tried to avoid every excess product which unfortunately ended up with this uneven line. Nevertheless, that way it did last and stayed put.

So that's that. In theory, this is a lovely liner, but with that tendency to imprints I'm not perfectly happy with it. Did you try them?

Product was sent for review

Ich hab den auch, aber in Black Chrome. Find ihn ganz toll und verwend seit Wochen nur noch den. Bei mir gibts kein Verrutschen, Abdrücke oder so.

Der Pinsel ist übrigens echt toll! Verwend ich sonst eigentlich auch nur ganz dünne Pinsel, komm ich mit dem so gut zurecht, dass ich eigentlich gar keinen anderen mehr verwende. :)

My favorite gel liner is by Inglot. It took me a while to get used to them since they are on the dry side.
I also really like MAC fluidline since it goes so well on the waterline and as a base for eyeshadows.

Maybelline keeps dissapointing me. Those tatoo cream eyeshadows were not worth the hype in my opinion.
