Maybelline Eye Studio New lasting Drama Gel Liner Review Swatch and Price
Maybelline re-launched their Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliners in a new 36 Hr Version and I was more than eager to try it out. During GOSF I picked this up at a 20% discount. I really loved their older version and it lasted me around a year even with regular usage of 3/5 times a week. I picked this up as I love gel liners and they see to be the only product which can take the sultry summer weathers of Kolkata . Read on to know if I love this new version of their favorite gel liners or not.

Packaging of Maybelline EyeStudio New lasting Drama Gel Liner :
The new gel liners come in a small plastic tub which i feel looks far better than the last one. The lid is also larger and made of plastic with the Brand name inscribed. The product comes with a brush which is great for general use too. Even though I tossed my old tub i have kept the brush from the pack. The tub and the brush comes in a cardboard packaging with all the brand information and usage instructions are provided.
Price Of Maybelline EyeStudio New lasting Drama Gel Liner :
Maybelline EyeStudio New lasting Drama Gel Liner retails at INR 475 (Four hundred and seventy-five rupees only ) on major shopping sites. You can buy it on Flipkart or Nykaa. Price wise I assure you ladies this is THE BEST GEL LINER . Because if you will see the other available variants from MAC and L’Oreal they all cost nearly double. But you will surely love this pocket friendly version from maybelline which performs great. The quantity of the liner is 2.5 Gm but it is sufficient to ast you months even with regular use as you need very little product for each application.
Texture and Pigmentation of maybelline EyeStudio Lasting Drama Gel Liner :
I feel the newer version is creamier and more easy to apply than the older one. The new one is perfect for even beginners and has some really good pigmentation. It provides a matte jet black line every time and I love the fact that the brush really makes the application a breeze. There is no need to pull or tug at the lids and even if you’re using it as a kajal you will seldom need to pull or tug. The texture is so creamy and easy to glide onto the lids.
Moving on To the Pros and Cons :

As a Newbie I tried out so many liners and still am but this one has been a constant part of my Makeup box. It is intensely pigmented, shows up on dark lids as well; It has a creamier formula now and needs no tug or pull, comes with a brush to use instantly . I also love that it has a more travel friendly and usable packaging and is priced reasonably. If you are looking to get your hands on a gel liner but are hesitation to spend a large amount on Mac or L’Oreal then this is the best bet. I will suggest everyone to at least try it once. I snatched it on my hands and left it that way all day , I took a bath and did normal household work and slept. It stayed on my wrist till I removed it the next morning . Even on lids it can stay around 6-8 hours easily. I have used it as Kohl, liner as well as a base for my eye makeup. It gives a great base for black yeshadow if you are doing smokey eye makeup.
