Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Liner

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.

Any recommendations?



  1. I love this and cant think of living without this too.:)

  2. I really didn't get on with this one! It was too dry for me, but now I'm thinking I got a bad batch or they've changed the formula or something?! The Illamasqua Gel Eyeliner has been a game changer for me and although it's expensive it lasts for ages! Also Oriflame do a pretty good one for around the same price as this :)

  3. I love the Revlon gel eyeliner, it also stays all day and stays black all day (I've previously owned eyeliners which end up grey by the end of the day) it's also great for keeping in your bag or travelling as the brush fits into the lid. You can get it for £9.99 in boots or superdrug I think!
