Maybelline has been giving us a lot of fantastic new launches these days and one of them is the new Lasting Drama Gel Liner.
Price: Rs. 450.
I officially hated the previous version of this gel liner which literally burnt my eyes and I suffered from eye infection for an entire day. I had to throw it in the bin and never dared to repurchase it. I was eagerly waiting for the new one to launch just to see how better it is compared to the old one. Maybelline sent it to me at the right time and here I am with my experience.
Packaging: The old one came in a glass jar with a cheap looking silver cap. This one looks more classy and is light weight in a plastic tub with a black cap. Very similar to L’Oreal Paris Gel Liner.
It comes with a brush which is perfect for application, however you cannot draw very thin lines. I like the brush, it is similar to the older version.
Shade: Black, pitch black, less intense when compared to the earlier version, but I tried building it up and got the right intensity.
Tesxture: Smooth enough to apply in one stroke but not as creamy as the older version. Not bad though for a gel liner.
I wore it on my lids and it stayed put for 8 hours, I do not have the patience to test it for 36 hours. I took the risk and tested it on my waterline and am highly disappointed to say it caused redness and watery eyes. I guess some ingredient in the liner does not suit my sensitive eyes so I would not suggest it to those with sensitive eyes like mine. However, as a liner for the lids and as a base for smokey eyes, it is a fantastic product. It is priced nearly half compared to the L’Oreal Paris one for the same quantity.
Rating: 4/5 ( Not suitable for sensitive eyes)
Final Words: Dark Black smooth cream liner which is great for the lids, long lasting. those with sensitive eyes, be very careful
P.S: Product was sent by the brand for consideration but my review is 100% honest.
