ADORE THIS PRODUCT!
i bought this last year, however i re-purchased this only last week and i recently tweeted how much i love this eyeliner (@gazzyxo). I bought it in black, because i wanted to wear this everyday including school, and i prefer black eyeliner on a daily basis. Before buying this product i always used pencil or liquid eyeliner, and they both didn't work for me! I have the most oily eyelids possible! I then read about gel eyeliner online, a couple weeks later i saw an advert on tv and i decided to buy it. The formula is very thick, but not in a hard to control way, it is nothing like liquid eyeliner so it wont smudge as easily whilst you're applying it. What i also love about the formula, because its thick it looks as though you have alot of product on which helps the eyeliner to last longer. It comes along with a cute brush, the quality of this brush is very good! It might take you a couple tries at first to apply the eyeliner but that is only if you have never applied eyeliner using a brush. You can also use this eyeliner on your waterline, and it stays on! Unless you cry or your eyes water, then you need to reapply it. I usually apply this eyeliner at 6/7 in the morning and remove it at 10pm, and i can confidently say that it looks as though i just applied it and i tend to touch my eyes alot because i wear glasses. You can use this for an everyday look, a dramatic look, or even a smokey eye by smudging the eyeliner as soon as you apply it! For £8 i would defiantly recommend this eyeliner to everyone! I would even buy this for £10 because i think its such a fantastic product!
A great Drugstore Gel Liner
So The Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama is a gel liner and it is about the same consistency as the MAC fluidline. So big bonus there, it is smooth and easy to apply. It transfers incredibly easily and take a big effort to smudge off or remove by rubbing. The staying power is not as good as MAC's fluidlines which are amazing, the fluidlines you can rub your eyes for 12 hours and they won't come off, The Maybelline Eye Studio stays on pretty well for about 8 hours but if you are an excessive eye rubber then it's not a good, but still lasts longer then the Smashbox Waterproof Shadow liner which rubs off in about an hour.
As far as amount of product the Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama is the exact same amount as the Fluidline but for half the price, and to me the Maybelline Eye Studio liner is a fantastic dupe for MAC Fluidline.
In all the Maybelline Eye Studio Liner is cheaper then the fluidline and applied as well as the fluidline and is very close to the same quality as the fluidline, and you also get the same amount of product for less.
My little sister uses this for dancing and performing, so its easy to use and stays on for long. It doesn't smudge and it has great precision for someone with little experience with cosmetics and the application of them. i suggest this product to anyone who is a performer and needs a fail-proof eyeliner that's easy to use and also reasonably priced!
This is a great gel eyeliner! It's very pigmented and very easy to apply! Also it's pretty cheap! It's a great dupe for the smashbox cream eyeliner! (: I highly request it! Just don't forget to close the lid tightly or it will dry out! If that does happen though you can just wipe you brush in makeup remover and your set! It's because it will make the liner creamier!
Will never use again...
There is only one good thing I can say about this liner is that the color is great and goes on smoothly. However, it smudges way too easily, and after about two hours of having it on, it had migrated to my brow bone and looked awful. AND it did all of that when I used a primer. I can only imagine where it would have one if I hadn't. :(
Great product, not the brand (for me).
This was my very first gel eyeliner and it works really well! It stays put all day, even on the waterline, it doesn't smudge and is easy to use. The finish is a little less glossy than the Essence gel eyeliner and more charcoal-ish, yet it's very black and not grey-ish. Moreover, while the Essence one is more fluid-ish, this feels thicker and makes it easier to apply.
The only reason I'll never buy this product again is that Maybelline is owned by L'Oreal which is included in the animal testing black-list, but apart from this issue (which is important to me) I'll be honest and I'll say it really is a great product. I kept the little brush anyway, because I dind't feel like throwing it away and it's really a nice brush, I use it regularly to apply eyeliner on the waterline.
So, overall a good purchase I guess, if you're looking for a not expensive yet quality gel eyeliner. Perfect if you're looking for a true black eyeliner with a more opaque and less glossy finish.
As the others have been saying, this gel liner really does glide on well and is a true black. It's easy to work with and very easy to build. The brush that comes with it isn't all that bad, but you have to wash it somewhat often or else the product builds up on it. The only problem I had with it is that mine's been getting a tad dry, but if you warm it up on your skin beforehand, it's creamy consistency is restored easily.
I've had this eyeliner for a while now and It really is quite amazing! The brush isn't that bad either! The only con I have with this product is that it's a little too thick for my liking, BUT, because of that I feel it lasts longer. I would definitely purchase this product again!
