Review: Maybelline Gel Eyeliner “Lasting Drama”
The winged liner look has been one of my favourites for a long time. It can be an easy evening makeup option given you have the skill of using an eyeliner. Yet creating a flawless line requires a lot of effort and a steady hand. Not everybody has that. So behold winged eye look lovers! Here is the new magical product for you: Maybelline gel eyeliner “Lasting Drama”.
I have tried this eyeliner recently and was genuinely surprised by how easy it is to draw a perfect line with it. Seriously I used a few different eyeliners in my life but none of them matches qualities of Maybelline’s. With this eyeliner even a beginner will be able to execute winged eye without much effort. No steady hand required either! Whether you go for a classic Marilyn Monroe style, heavy rock star look or a retro pinup liner look – you will be able to create it in minutes.
“Intense color, waterproof, smudgeproof. Easy to apply. Safe for sensitive eyes”
- Yes, the color is intense.
- Yes, it is waterproof but not 100% smudgeproof. Yet it is much more smudgeproof than other eyeliners.
- And yes, it is super easy to apply: dip tip of brush into gel and then glide brush in small strokes across lash line.
Because of its heavy gel formula and hard brush, you can draw a flawless line of any width and as close to your lashes as possible. Images below demonstrate how perfect the line can be yet without much effort. This eyeliner does not leak like others, so if your hand is not that steady just draw the line in small strokes and you will be fine.
The only annoying thing about this product: it comes in two pieces – a brush and a bottle with the gel. Not very convenient storage wise. Also, you need to wipe the brush clean after each use.
However these cons are outweighed to a large degree by the benefits of the product, namely: ease of application and smudgeproof-iness.
To all fans of a winged eye look I would definitely recommend this magic Maybelline eyeliner. Creating a glamorous winged eye makeup has never been easier!
