New Buy: Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner

Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner 24H £7.99 | buy here

I've been getting into wearing eyeliner again, and have only really been wearing 'pen' liners like the Eyeko one. I have been looking for a gel liner for a while and a bunch of lovely beauty bloggers recommended Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner 24H during a #bbloggers chat. 
I have never been one to draw eyeliner on perfectly, in fact in my teens I was so bad at doing it that I just embraced the panda eye look. 
I was worried that I wouldn't be able to get this to work but I've had a bit of practise using pen liners so I plucked up the courage and bought it.
I bought the 'Intense Black' one as I like my eyeliner to be black black. It comes in a cute little glass jar with a screw on lid, as well as an eyeliner brush. 
Don't be scared if you don't have the steadiest of hands. The formula is really soft and glides on perfectly so there's little room for making mistakes.
I apply the liner as close to my lash line as I can and drag it out leaving a black line. I follow this out towards the corner. I'm no good at doing cat flicks as I can never get them the same, so this is about as much as I do.
The eyeliner stays on all day, and stays black too. There's nothing worse than an eyeliner claiming to be black when in actual fact its grey or faded. 
You only need a small amount for this, so the jar will last you a long while, just remember to screw that lid on so that it doesn't dry up!

Have you tried this? What other gel liners have you tried?

  1. I tried this before and I loooooooved it! It's on my christmas list. The brush works really well to fill in eyebrows with eyebrow powder too, that's what I use mine for now :) Also, your skin is so so pretty. I am so jealous!

    1. oh thanks, you're too kind haha
      I've never thought to use it for eyebrows before

  2. I love this eyeliner. I can't remember what shade mine is called but it's got little gold flecks in it so I now tend to use it when I'm going out. I reviewed it on my blog a while ago if you ever wanted to see what I thought in detail :)

  3. I loved this eyeliner, although mine did dry out even when I did screw the lid back on properly.

    That said, I did get a good 2 months use out of it, just gutted because there was loads of product left!

    At least it isn't too expensive to replace!
