Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eye Liner | Blackest Black

Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eye Liner

Hello Reader,
I’ll be reviewing today Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eye Liner in the shade Blackest Black. One thing to mention, the one I’m reviewing today is imported from the USA. The packaging you seeing in the picture is Maybelline’s USA version. I found same product available in other countries has different packaging.

Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eye Liner

Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eye Liner is one of the most popular drugstore liners. However, I got my hands on this recently, about a month ago. It is priced around $10 in the USA. The gel liner comes in a small sleek plastic jar which is transparent, well finished and sturdy. The jar contains 3g of the product. It also comes with a palm size long small flat tip brush. The brush is well made yet not really useful to apply liner because of its thickness. You can easily use the brush for other purposes like I find it perfect as lipstick applicator.

Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eye Liner has that perfectly smooth and creamy texture. Pigmentation is perfect and black, but I feel it’s tad bit far from that ink like black. Dries up on the application within 40/50sec and then gives a matte finish. What I love about this liner is it applies really smoothly, doesn’t bleed/flake and makes it very easy to create a sharp and tidy line, for example, cat eye! Once the product is dry it doesn’t transfer, fade, move or budge in any way just as Maybelline claims. However, I haven’t worn it up to that 24hr mark but 8/9 hour.


Swatches shown below is one light stroke by the flat and thin side of the brush it comes with.

If you are concern about allergic reaction then let me tell you my eyes are quite sensitive. Till now I haven’t faced any allergic issue with Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eye Liner. Lastly, as because this Gel Eye Liner is waterproof and long wearing you’ll need some kind of good eye makeup remover to wear it off.

Overall, I’m completely satisfied with Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eye Liner. I agree with others, this is the best budget gel line I have come across. After a month, I haven’t noticed any symptom that it’s drying up in the pot. I can easily count this product in my repurchase category.

    Make up for men and women are so drastically different. I’m just like I’m a guy and don’t have to use any. :P

    definitely never seen this type of liner here in Malaysia, I still prefer those with brush like dolly wink that is so easy to apply., since i’m still rather poor in applying makeup and will get it smudged all over.
