Good morning possums!
If you haven't dipped your toes into the world of gel liner yet, you're missing out. Maybelline have introduced their Lasting Drama gel liner to the high street and I think it's well and truly earned it's popular status amongst us liner addicts. I'm so impressed with this product, I couldn't not review it!
Maybelline say: Our liner revelation: Intense colour and lasting wear in an easy to apply gel. Create a natural or dramatic look - you choose!
I say: I was incredibly surprised at how fabulous this liner is. The gel is the perfect consistency and the colour is opaque on the first application. So whether you want to add some definition to your lashes or get your Amy Winehouse on, this is the product for you.
Maybelline say: Designed to give an intense black line. The long lasting gel formula means up to 24 hour hold. Easy to apply with the brush which is included. You can create different looks and intensities with this one product. No transfer. Easy application (fine or thick line). 1 step application.
I say: As I mentioned above, the colour of the liner is opaque and it really is a true jet black. I've found that the liner can withstand a long day with no smudging (applied around 5:30am and lasted perfectly until about 10pm). I was surprised at how good the brush was. I find it easy to use and very precise - perfect cat-eye flicks anyone? I find if I use a primer and then eye shadow I don't get any transfer to my lid but if I don't use any products on the eye I do get a teeny bit of transfer, but to be honest it's not really that mentionable. It's not very often I don't wear colour on my eyes. The packaging says to use waterproof eye makeup remover but I find this comes off fine with a make up wipe. Overall, a little gem of a product!
