Maybelline Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil in Smooth Charcoal and Soft Nude : Review and Swatch

by - June 09, 2017

Hello everyone,
Color liners these days are in Vogue. And I have absence of color eyeliners in my vanity except three universally flattering shades which are black, brown and blue. So as soon as I have heard that my favorite brand Maybelline has launched  Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencils, I was set my mind to get few by myself. Everyone in this beauty blogosphere is going gaga over them. So I thought why not give them a try and ordered two from Nykaa. The shades I have got was Smooth Charcoal and Soft Nude. So I shall be sharing my experience with the product today.

INR: 499/- for 1.1gm.
Available on  Amazon, Nykaa.

Packaging: Liners comes in paper and plastic packaging which carries all the relevant information like ingredients, price etc. You have to tear off the outer packaging. The liner comes in color coded body with clear plastic cap. Cap closes tightly enough which ensure product’s safety while travelling with it. The brand and product name is printed on the liner itself.

My Views

Smooth Charcoal is a stunning gray shade with matte finish. I use it to create soft smokey eyes look. Just apply and smudge it with ring finger and I’m ready to go.
Soft Nude is a very bright flesh toned color.  I use it in my lower waterline, it instantly open up my eyes and make them appear bigger and brighter.

These are insanely pigmented. Just one swipe with light hand and you will get the most opaque finish. These are very light-weight and creamy. They glide just like butter. No tugging or pulling required. Texture is exactly like gel based liner, soft and smooth, that glide evenly on waterline in just one go. The formula doesn’t dry quickly, so you have the time to smudge it further. But once it set it doesn’t move, smudge or crease. These give flawless silky and velvety finish look. They have minute shimmers which are almost negligible but impart a satiny finish.
They stay on for good 8-9 hours. Though the brand claim that they will last for 16 hours, but I never keep the liner that long, so can’t comment on that. These are smudge-proof and water proof so they might stay so long. So these can only be removed with a good oil based makeup remover.
The only thing I dislike that these are sharpen able eye liners and Maybelline doesn’t provide any kind of sharpener along with these. So you have to make a good search for their best match and I personally don’t like those eyeliners which come with such costly price tag and lead product wastage.

My rating: 4.5/5.
Final verdicts: Overall, these eye liners are creamiest, smoothest and long stay colored liners for me by far. This range has 6 more colors to choose from. So if your soul wants to play with some colors right now, you can check out Maybelline Lasting Drama  Waterproof Gel Pencil.

  5. Omg!! I have to try these out. I was totally unaware about these awesome liners. Thanks Papri for sharing. 😘😘 and true, even I hate pencils which needs to be sharpened. It unnecessarily wastes a lot of product.
