Maybelline Lasting Drama Swirl Gel Liner in Brown and Gold

Hi All!!

I saw the swirl gel liner review in black here and I immediately got the brown one. This is my first gel liner and I am really excited about it!

Maybelline Lasting Drama Swirl Gel Liner in Brown and Black

Product Description:

Quick dry, intense color + shine lasts all day. Smudge proof and water proof.” Mix or use one color at a time, as you please; for an intense color and glittery shine.”  It comes with an expert eye liner brush.

Price:

Rs.425 for 3 gm.

Gel liner

Application Tips:

Creamy gel type allows to draw a smooth clean line without crease. By mixing two shades, you will have a classy subtle shine. By using separately, you will gwt intense powerful line or a dramatic shine.

My Take on Maybelline Lasting Drama Swirl Gel Liner in Brown and Gold:

My first impression of the product was “awwwww sooo cute.” The pot is small and cute. It has a screw type silver color metal cap. An expert brush comes with the liner which has a cap. Both the pot and the brush are compact and can be easily accommodated in one’s makeup kit.

Swirl

I ll first talk about the brush. It is small, less than my palm length, and is compact. The cap prevents any the dust getting stuck to the bristles, which makes it ideal to carry to office or elsewhere and is basically hygienic.  The bristles are thin and densely packed. The tip is thin and helps picking the right amount of product and gives an even application. The liner can be applied either thin or thick using the brush (and I like this aspect the most about the brush).

Applicator

Maybelline brush

Now, about the gel liner. The pot contains a beautiful golden swirl starting from the corner and ending right at the center. With this, one can apply the liner in three different types. The brown alone, gold and brown mixed, and the gold alone!

Here are the swatches in three ways in the above-stated order.

Swatch 1

I don’t think the gold will be visible on the lids, but the SA told me that the gold can be used as a shadow on the lids with the brown color as a liner. I like the gold + brown mix the most. So, here is another swatch (gold + brown top and brown bottom).

Swatch 2

Swatch 3

I wanted to test the smudgeproof and water proof claim of the liner.  So, I smudged the swatch after 2 minutes. See for yourself!

Swatch 4

I rubbed over the swatches lightly and that too within 2 minutes of application. The SA told me to wait for 15 minutes for it to set, but I think 5 minutes is what it takes to set.

Next, I rubbed the swatches very hard under water.

Swatch 5

The pressure that I applied for rubbing the swatch cannot be applied on the lids. I had rubbed hard to smudge this much. Also, note how the golden glitter has spread over my hands on rubbing under water. So, if one tries to rub the lids hard to remove the liner, you will be left with the glitter spread all over your face. It should be removed with a makeup remover or oil (I tried it and there was not a trace of the liner).  Hence, all the claims are true: quick dry, smudge proof and water proof. Yay for this gel liner!

Pros of Maybelline Lasting Drama Swirl Gel Liner in Brown and Gold:

  • All claims are true (quick dry, smudge proof and water proof) and it stays till I remove it with oil.
  • Innovative idea and fun to use.
  • Has a cute brush which does a good job in application.
  • Three types of color combinations in one product.
  • The gold color can be used as an eyeshadow base too.
  • Price is very affordable.
  • The quantity will last for a long time.
  • Travel-friendly and compact pot and brush.

Cons of Maybelline Lasting Drama Swirl Gel Liner in Brown and Gold:

  • The gold is not intense enough to be shown on the lids (works good if mixed with brown).

No other con than this. Overall, I am really happy to have got this.

IMBB Rating:

4.8/5

Do I Recommend Maybelline Lasting Drama Swirl Gel Liner in Brown and Gold?

Yes! Hurry up ladies. I actually got it at an offer price of Rs. 355 instead of Rs.425, yayayayaya!

Will I Repurchase Maybelline Lasting Drama Swirl Gel Liner in Brown and Gold?

Yes, but in black and silver as I am sure this brown will last me for a lifetime!
