Maybelline Lasting Drama Eyeliner Black


My views on the new Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner 01 Black:

My love for gel liners has recently returned when I saw and used this new gel liner by Maybelline that claims a 36 Hr staying power. I already have used the previous gel liner by the brand so making a mind on this one was not hard enough and I’m surely in love with it right now.

Packaging: The new gel liner comes in a rectangular plastic case with a glossy round cap and it looks cute and sturdy.  Again Maybelline has provided the customers with a liner brush too which is similar to the one that was available with the gel liner. It works pretty well and makes the application of the liner easy.

Shade: The gel liner is of jet black color with a completely matte finish when it sets. There is absolutely no shimmer or shine which makes it easily wearable on the waterline too.

Texture & pigmentation: The gel liner is buttery smooth in texture. Seriously, it gets picked up pretty easily and goes on evenly on the lids/waterline. Highly pigmented and a single thick stroke gives the desired result both on the lids and the waterline too.

The liner sets pretty quickly and then it doesn’t budge from the lids for the whole day. Even splashing water and rubbing won’t remove it from your lids easily. A proper eye makeup remover is definitely needed if you want every bit of the liner to be completely removed.

Staying power: As I already said it is pretty hard to wipe off this liner. I have seen it on my lids and the waterline with almost the same intensity for over 11 hours at a stretch. It doesn’t fade or smudge when it comes in contact with water (totally waterproof ;-)). Though if you rub it off a bit rigorously, it may smudge from the eye corner (I have a habit of doing that 🙁 ) else I don’t find it smudging or fading away. Quite commendable.

If you love gel liners and crave for an intense matte black liner that can work both on the waterline and the lids then this is a must have for you. Have you tried Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner 01 Black ?



  1. Looks really intense..can u differentiate anything between the previous one and this one Nids if we leave the staying power behind ?

    • Yeah Anamika.. this 1 is smoother.. the older 1 dried pretty quickly.. but this 1 seems have more gel like texture so it wont dry up easily..

  2. yr eyes are so beautiful… The packaging seems to be very attractive.. I had a problem with the old version on lower waterline. It caused me burning sensation. Does this one irritate yr eyes when used on lower waterline?

    • no no.. it doesn’t irritate the eyes in any way… I am wearing the same liner on my waterline here.. its stays on forever even on the waterline 🙂
      u can try it at the counter too once if u have sensitive eyes .. 🙂
      n thank u 😀

  3. I used Maybelline Gel liner before all good but it don’t stay put on my waterlines.. Besides Nids I am looking at your EOTD only.. Your eyes are so pretty :heart: :inlove:

  4. Okay. I wondered whether I should get an angled brush for more precision. I’ve been using the older version of this product for a while now.
