Review : Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel liner

Thursday, June 30, 2011
Hey my sugar plums :),

Today's post is very close to my heart. Its about a product which is very close to my heart.As you all know that i am a big fan of kohls and eyeliners,  its Maybelline Lasting Drama gel liner in black , which is raved about many bloggers and girls and now. I am now addicted to it too.

What does Maybelline claims ? :

Now gel reinvents liner:            
• Oil-free formula holds highly concentrated pigments in a clear gel base
• Smudge-proof and waterwproof for 24 hours
• Most intense line for lasting drama                                                  
• Safe for sensitive eyes and ophthalmologist-tested
• Contact lens safe
Packaging :
Maybelline Lasting drama gel liner comes in a black box which has a glass pot filled with gel liner in it and a flat tip eyeliner brush with plastic cap. Glass pot looks very elegant with a screw open silver cap. The  cap itself does not feels of good quality. The amount of product present in glass pot is 2.8 g. But i know it will last longer as only a tiny amount of product is needed to line my eyes. It comes in three shades , black , brown and plum , I have it in black shade. 

My thoughts :
This gel liner is very pigmented.  I only have to dip it once in the pot. and the brush carries the right amount to line my eyes. The brush given is of good quality.It glides smoothly and gives great results .It takes a few minutes to dry but once it is dried It is waterproof, rear proof and does not smudge at all.It dries on a matte finish , which gives a very soft look to the eyes. I swatched it on my hand and then put my hand under running  water but it did not smudge at all. after several hours a little fading can be seen but thats okay. I am wearing it daily to line my eyes and getting compliments . Even the hot and humid weather of Karachi , it stay put on my so oily eyelids for several hours without any smudging or Panda eyes ... Thats a great plus for me .
As it is a gel liner , i tightly close its lid after using otherwise it will dry sooner. I have also washed the brush given with water and its still in good shape. The cap given with the brush prevents it from any damage. Here you can see how pigmented and creamy is this gel liner :

Here is a swatch on my hand :
