maybelline lasting drama gel eyeliner review...

maybelline lasting drama gel eyeliner review (01)

Hello beauties !! :)

                        How are you all ? doing fine !! hope so :)
                        Today i am going to review a product from maybelline eye studio that i purchased recently ... it is lasting drama gel eyeliner !! These day i am in love with my plain kohl eyed look everyday but for that special occasion or any festive moment i cant do without my eyeliner ...
                        For very first time i am using a gel based eyeliner ( my previous one was extra lasting eyeliner from avon ) . I bought this for Rs. 380 and it has shelf life of approx.30 months..


 Packaging : Maybelline lasting drama gel eyeliner comes in a beautiful tiny tub packaging with a silver cap on its top .You get an exclusive eyeliner brush with it . Personally i really found the packaging too cute . I love such tiny winy packaging's very much . Its travel friendly if you don't throw away its outer packaging as it will help you find your gel eyeliner and brush to apply it at one place ..                                                      

What it claims : It claims to be water proof and smudge proof eyeliner that lasts for 24 hrs. It is quick dry formula and resists tears sweat and water . It does  not crease and the brush provided along with it allows you fine to thick smooth even application on your eyes..

My take on the product : I liked the product . The first thing i noticed is that it does not has that strong chemical based smell that generally all liquid eyeliners contain. It is a fuss free formula and its claim to be a quick dry one stands absolutely true . You don't need to keep your eyes closed for some time post its application . It does not have that typical gel type consistency rather it has smooth texture . It will not give your lids a glossy look rather it gives a matte look to your eyes . Yes , it is water proof as well as smudge free . But the one thing that i didn't like about this eyeliner  or i can say about its brush is that it is not appropriate for fine line application ... you will need an extra fine liner brush for that sleek stroke. It basically allows line to be drawn thick . It stays well for whole day and does not cause irritation to your eyes . Does not smudge much even if you rub your eyes the quality that i really liked . Ideal for that dramatic eye look ...
