Without a doubt, I can honestly say that Maybelline New York’s Lasting Drama Eyestudio Gel Eyeliner (bloody long name, eh?) shits all over any pencil or liquid eyeliner you’ve ever tried before. It has the capabilities of both of these in one product, you can create smoldering eyes through smudging or fiercely fluid lines that flick up into wing tips (a look which I’m crazy for at the moment, fyi).
After experimenting with it, it really doesn’t take that long to get the hang of using it and creating amazing eyes. It’s my newest beauty addiction and now a staple in my beauty routine.
Eyestudio Gel Eyeliner has superb staying power, once you put it on it’s not going anywhere, which can be a little bit of a pain in the bum if you have trouble with creating symmetrical lines (like me). However, if you’re going out this is definitely going to be your saviour, the last thing you want is to have it all over your face by the end of the night. Lets face it, having a 24 hour smudge and water proof guarantee* you can get up to all sorts of shenanigans and not have to worry.
It comes in blackest black, brown, charcoal & eggplant. I paid approx $16 AUD.
All in all, I rate this 4.5/5 goji berries.
*Not so much of a guarantee but a marketing claim, however it hasn’t been proved incorrect so I’ll believe it.
