Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner 01 Black Review
Maybelline Gel Liners needs no introduction, these are the first gel liners introduced in India and that too at affordable prices. I have used its older version which was my first gel liner too and I absolutely loved it. Now, Maybelline has revived the formula and packaging and came up with newer Gel one, so today I am reviewing the newer version of the Gel liner launched last year, Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama 36H Gel Eyeliner 01 Black.

Packaging: Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eye Liner comes in a clear square shaped plastic jar type packaging with black plastic screw lid. The packaging is sturdier and looks chic compared to the old glass one with a metallic lid. Like before, it comes with a liner brush which does a good job and you needn’t invest in a brush separately.
My experience with Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eye Liner Black:-
Shade: Maybelline Lasting Drama Black Gel Eye Liner is a dark black eye liner with no shimmers or sheen. The liner doesn’t have a flat matte finish but imparts subtle creamy shine on lids which makes it look fresh even hours post application. The liner doubles up as kohl and can easily be used on lower lash line for a rimmed eye look.
Formula: The reformulated version of this Maybelline Lasting Drama Black Gel Eye Liner is buttery smooth, much smoother and softer than its older version. I need to dip the brush very lightly in the jar and it comes out with a good amount of liner on the bristles. The older version dried out after 6 months for me, I am using this reformulated one from past 2 months and it is going strong and still has the same texture and consistency. Shall update your whether it stays well or dries out after months.
Pigmentation: Maybelline New Gel Liner is super-duper pigmented; just one touch of the brush and it gives such a rich blackest black color to the lids. It doesn’t require any sort of layering, just even out your application and you get rich black lined eyes in a single stroke.
Staying Power: The liner dries down quickly to a smudge-proof finish and doesn’t loose its intensity on drying down and looks as rich and dark as it was during application. The liner once set doesn’t move at all whole day. I do not see any transfer on my lids/crease area though on super-oily lids it might stain them a bit. It wore very well on lower lash line as well as waterline. 36h claims can be a bit too as who is going to wear makeup for so long for I tested it for 12-14 hrs and it was very much in place with slight fading on inner eye-corners

It takes a few seconds to set but once set it doesn’t budge. It lasts whole day on lids without transferring, smudging or flaking. I haven’t tested it for 36 hours but easily lasts more than 12 hours on me. The liner comes with a brush so you needn’t buy a brush separately. Overall, one of the best budget friendly gel liner available in India which gives a tough competition to high-end ones like MAC, Bobbi brown. Must have in my makeup bag, Highly Recommended!
