Makeup: Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner

I've been using this gel eyeliner from Maybelline for almost six months now. I first knew about this product because of their promotions on Facebook last July. They were giving out 20% off vouchers which can be used when buying this gel eyeliner at any Robinsons Department Store. And because I was really eager to learn to do make up, I wanted to look for a not so expensive gel eyeliner, thus the Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner was my pick. I think this is the cheapest gel eyeliner that's available so I really grabbed the opportunity to get the 20% discount.

The  Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner has this black packaging box. It says it's quick-dry, intense color lasts all day. Printed in blue: smudge proof & water proof 24H. What I got was the black gel.

Okay so now onto the product. It has a 2-gram (i think?) pot of gel eyeliner that comes with a brush. This free brush is just superb! It's easy to control and doesn't create any stray lines when you apply the gel. The gel is creamy enough just make sure not to leave it uncovered else you'll come home seeing a hardened gel.

Now let's talk about which ones written on the packaging are true. It's not as quick-dry as what I heard how quick-dry other eyeliners are. Maybe the reason is this is gel so it doesn't dry up fast? I'm not so sure. I haven't tried wearing this all day, so I'm not sure if it lasts 24 hours. But yes, it is smudge-proof and water-proof. I use petroleum jelly to remove it. Every time I wash my face and try to remove it by rubbing my eyes with water, it just makes it more look dirty, smudgy, so the best way to remove it is use a make-up remover or a petroleum jelly, like what I do. 

Here's a couple of eye shots with this eyeliner on:

So far, I'm satisfied with this product, except that I heard Maybelline tests on animals. If I'm still on a budget, I'll definitely buy this again, but I like to try the gel eyeliner from Tony Moly. Hihi.

Merry me
