Hey everyone, Today’s blog post is a review on Maybellines Eye studio Lasting Drama gel eye liner in black.
I bought this eye liner after hearing some really good reviews on it. I got it home and immediately wanted to use it in a make up look which is why I did the dramatic liner look yesterday on Issy.
when I first put the eye liner on her it was slipping and sliding all over her eyelid and was so patchy, so I don’t know if it didn’t like the combination of eyelid primer & eye shadow that I used or the fact that issy has oily eyelids but it was really hard to work with. Even after I’d pat a black eye shadow on top of it to try and get it to stay in place.
I decided today to give it another go on myself (I have quite dry eyelids) so I could review it fairly, I applied it onto my bare skin and it worked perfectly, It went on a lot smoother and darker. I did have to do 2 coats of the product to get it opaque but it was a lot easier to work with on my eye lids.
if you have oily eyelids I’d steer clear of this product because I think that may have played a big part in how it performed on Issy.
Here are some pictures of the product on me
The Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama pot liner retails for $8.48
I this this product is definitely worth trying if you are looking for a gel liner, as long as you don’t have super oily eye lids you should be fine.
