Maybelline: Lasting Drama Gel Liner.

One of my favorite products in my makeup collection right now: my Maybelline Gel Liner in Blackest Black. This is my first gel liner and I've been using this product for almost 4 months now, and now I'm going to give a justified and unbiased-honest review. :D

What it claims:

WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT

               Now gel reinvents liner:            
         • Oil-free formula holds highly concentrated pigments in a clear gel base
• Smudge-proof and waterproof for 24 hours
                                      • Most intense line for lasting drama                                                  
            • Safe for sensitive eyes and ophthalmologist-tested
• Contact lens safe

I was planning on buying an eyeliner when I saw this little jar o' cream at the Maybelline Booth in my local department store. I have to admit, when I saw this photo, I thought it was all Photoshop. But when I purchased this, it's the real deal: What you see, is what you get. :)
What Roxy Claims:
Maybe its just instincts, but 4 months ago, I used to buy products based on seeing and testing them myself. I rarely go online and check reviews and blogs if I'm gonna buy something. So thankfully, all products I bought months ago were all GOOD buys, including this gel liner. :D What I love about this is that it does what it claims to do. Its highly pigmented, thus living up to its name: Blackest Black. It's Smudge-proof (Yes, even in this hot-humid jolly weather my country has.) and I only have to wait a few seconds for this to dry when I apply this on my lids, and you can easily remove it with a good makeup remover, or in my case, Etude's cleansing cream
BEST OF ALL: It does not dry on its pot... at all. I mentioned this because I read a blog review sometime ago about a local gel liner formula that in case it dries up (which it did, most of the time), you have to squirt it with a li'l baby oil. :| 
Fortunately, Maybelline's is a GREAT gel-based liner. Not only in my opinion, but of other bloggers as well. :D
See its creaminess? This is 4 months old now, and never did it dry on me. Very good buy indeed.

Blackest Black: It takes only seconds for this baby to dry and be smudge and waterproof in 24 hours.
It also comes with a synthetic liner brush, which I use for a smooth and precise application. Combine these two together and it does wonders. I LOVE that this is contact-lens safe, because I'm a regular contact lens user, so its safe for the eyes. :)
Sad thing about this baby is that I cannot use it on my water line. Maybe Maybelline's new Eye Pencil cream should do the trick, yeah? 

My Pin-up look. Created with the Maybelline's Lasting Drama Gel Liner and Lime Crime in Retrofuturist.
