Maybelline- Eye Studio Lasting Drama – Gel Eyliner

Hello there,

This is my first review on my new website :), which is pretty exciting. I do hope you like new layout and logo, I designed it to be very simple, and accessible. Let me know what you think below.

This today I will review the Maybelline- Eye studio lastin Drama- Gel eyeliner (yes the name is long), I have been using this eyeliner for a long time and have found it to be quite a good gel eyeliner and the best I had tried from most drugstore brands. The texture of it is in between that of a pencil and that of a liquid liner. It comes with a nice brush which unfortunately I lost for some reason, so I couldn’t show it to you guys. It retails for approximately €9 which is a good price for a gel liner and you get a good amount of product which will last you for a long time.

Pros: 

  • It has a nice dark black colour, just the way I like them
  • The packaging is very nice and quite sturdy,  however it would be better if the brush incorporated with the tube, so I you don’t get to lose it
  • The brush is good especially for a winged eyeliner but not suitable for precise thin lines
  • It last on my lids for a whole day. When I used to wear it for work,  it would still be visible once I got home, 9hrslater.

Cons:

  • The most annoying thing for me was that I have to clean the brush after each application, because the buildup can cause the liner to look very sloppy.
  • If you have oily lids it might smudge a little bit after a long day or wear but on me it worked just fine.
  • Make sure that if you use it, use it repetitively, don’t forget about it like I did cause it dried out a bit. However I still use it for my eye-brows.

Will I ever buy this product again? Maybe, it’s not a bad eyeliner but not my favorite either. I like that it stays on for a long time but having to clean the brush all the time after using can be annoying.

Do I recommend it? I recommend this to girls who aren’t a fan of pencil or liquid liners.

NYX – The Curve Eyeliner

Hey guys,

On my last visit to the NYX store I bought this new Curve eyeliner which I have been using for the last month. The eyeliner comes into this amazingly designed tool with a sponge pen applicator. If you have read my previous reviews on eyeliners, with this type of applicators, you would know how much I actually dislike them. However this product changed my mind completely.

N1

First of all let’s talk about the packaging of this eyeliner, what is there to say but “well done”. Finally design and make-up are coming together to create a comfortable way for us to apply make-up not only on ourselves but even on our clients. I love how the eyeliner is designed for the index finger to fit in perfectly, so that it makes the application way easier. The eyeliner can be a bit difficult for some to apply, so this definitely will help. “Design” does definitely “meet it’s function”.

N2

Now let’s talk about the eyeliner itself, finally an eyeliner that comes out of a sponge applicator that works properly. Usually eyeliners with this type of applicator do not transfer well, smudge and you cannot apply a thin liner because the product doesn’t come out well. However to my surprise this is the opposite, it transfers well and it is a very nice dark black. You can apply a thin layer if you don’t want a heavy liner and it doesn’t smudge. Did I mention that this eyeliner is also waterproof? yes it is and a very good one. It is great to take with you on holiday as it takes only a few minutes to apply.

N3

This lovely liner retails for about €14 which can be seen a bit pricey for an eyeliner but believe me it’s worth it. I am really loving the eyeliner and I will purchase this eyeliner again once it finishes. I really have nothing bad to say about this eyeliner, I am truly loving it :). For all the Maltesers you can find this gorgeous eyeliner at the NYX store in Sliema, do check it out.

Have you tried this gorgeous liner ? would love to read your comment down below. Thank you for following, keep posted for more
