Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Liner is genuinely my eyeliner saviour I can’t see myself falling out of favour with it anytime soon. I will admit that this was the first gel eyeliner I tried out, but I fell so in love with it I couldn't see the point in trying the others and am now on my third pot (although one pot wasn't completely used it up, it just got left in my friends bathroom).
The benefit of gel eyeliner is that you can draw with much more precision which for someone who likes cats-eyes as much as I do is a definite advantage. The benefit of the Maybelline Lasting Drama gel is that it stays put afterwards. Its staying power is absolutely phenomenal; it claims on the packing that it can last for twenty-four hours and I would be one to dispute that claim.
Packaging-wise it is also worth noting that it is adorable and the little 2.5 gram pot retails for the incredibly reasonable £7.99. You also get a little brush included in the price which surprisingly isn’t bad for a freebie - it creates quite a nice line and is easily controlled. For a thinner line I've used the Barry M Eyeliner Brush and I've also road tested the Revlon Duo Eye Brush but that didn't blow me away.
I wish I could credit the person who originally suggested to me that Gel Eyeliner might be worth checking out, but unfortunately it was one of those random YouTube suggested videos that I didn't think much of at the time. However, I am grateful l as this is one of my ‘can’t live without’ items. It’s one of the only Maybelline products currently in my stash and writing this has got me wondering whether there are some others I should try.
