My Experience With Maybelline Lasting Drama by Eyestudio Waterproof Gel Pencil Lustrous Sapphire
I have been experimenting with colored kajal and eyeliner recently. I have used the colossal colored kajal from Maybelline which I quite liked. When I heard the launch of these awesome babies, I couldn’t resist. These babies are launched in 9 different shades and lustrous sapphire is my favorite. The emerald green one is also awesome, though.
This liner is a gel in a pencil form, all you need is a single swipe to get the intense color and rock your look. The application is very smooth so you don’t have to tug your skin. But the only con I found was the liner needs sharpening and sharpening the pencil leads to product wastage, but can’t help, sadly.
The main parameters that are on the checklist of a kajal or eyeliners are pigmentation, longevity, smudge proof, waterproof and water resistant. Let me talk you through each parameter and rate them individually.
The color of the liner is the exact same as the pencil. All you need is a just one swipe of it so without any rambling, it gets 5/5 for pigmentation.
I have very watery eyes, so no kajal stays on my waterline for more than 2 hours. But to my surprise, these lasted for around 4 to 5 hours. Even though 16 hours claim is not met. So this gets 4.5/5 as it didn’t stand to its claim.
On application, this gets smudged if you rub it or smudge it. After few seconds the liner gets dried and after that, no matter what, it stays without smudging throughout. This gets 5/5.
For people with water eyes like me, this liner is a must have. This doesn’t wear off with water, even if you wash your face which gets a big thumbs up. The eyeliner doesn’t fade off on washing with water. But it does fade if you rub really hard, which nobody does on the eye area. So it passes this test as well.
Overall Performance of Maybelline Lasting Drama by Eyestudio Waterproof Gel Pencil Lustrous Sapphire
- The liner is highly pigmented.
- It lasts for the really good amount of time.
- It doesn’t smudge.
- Water resistant.
- Little expensive. 300 to 400 price range would have made the product much affordable.
- Sharpening is needed.
- Sharpener is not provided with the pencil
But these cons are not much of a concern when compared to the quality of the product.
Would I Repurchase Or Recommend?
Yes yes yes! These liners are super awesome. The colors are beautiful and they are long lasting, etc. they have everything. So highly recommend it and I would definitely repurchase this even if I try out the other colors in this range because blue is my favorite. Even if you don’t prefer color liners, you can try the black one in the range.
