Review: Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Liner

Friday, 13 April 2012
Hiya,

I picked up the gel liner by Maybelline, which is very popular with a lot of bloggers, to see how it compares with MAC's fluidlines. I find myself comparing MAC to a lot of brands these days, I guess it is because I have found much better alternatives recently and those alternatives have also been a lot easier to afford!





Unfortunately I have thrown out the packaging that this liner came in but I guess that is not really relevant when reviewing the product itself.

The little pot the liner comes in is very different to most gel liner pots I have come across previously. I like that it is immediately recognisable in my collection though.


I have to say that I did not expect it to be very pigmented. Even though I have read countless times about how good it is, I never quite believed it.

Having said that, I was really pleased to see I was wrong!

As you can see, one swipe is more than enough to show the pigmentation. It is very black and goes on impressively smoothly. As it is fairly new to me though, I am not too sure about how soon it will dry out.

It doesn't flake off or fade during the day and definitely lasts a long time.

I am really happy about this purchase, it was well worth it and I am probably not going to buy the MAC fluidline again, why bother when you can get something at almost half the price?!

Price ranges between £6-£8.

Have you tried it? Did you like this or can you recommend a better one?

  2. I first felt the same as you, but it dries out after some time -,- you'll see!
    But then I found a gel liner that is even better, doesn't dry out at all, smells better, the formula is so much easier to deal with, it lasts longer on the eyelid and the pot is a bit bigger AND it's cheaper, I'm talking about Catrice's gel liner ;) My review is coming soon.

    1. Uh oh! I really hope it doesn't!

      I don't think Catrice is available in the UK, I could be wrong though- I'll take a look, thanks for the sugestion x x

  5. I love this stuff! Never tried MAC Fluidline but I won't bother to be honest! It's lasted me ages without drying out, no complaints!

    1. I've had the fluidline for over a year and it hasn't dried out on me yet- but I do store it upside down. If this doesn't dry up, it is definitely the best gel/cream liner yet!
