My Experience with Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in Brown 952:

After trying out the purple gel eyeliner from the same range, I wanted to try the brown one. Generally, I do not have much luck with brown eyeliners, be it liquid or pencil or gel! Either the color is such a lighter version of brown that it hardly shows on my lids or the color is so dark that it is almost black! I wanted something intermediate, which should be soft but at the same time, must be visible on the lids!

The Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in Brown comes in a small glass pot with a screw-on lid. You also get a small, flat bristled brush for application.  The brush is firm enough to apply the color neatly. You can draw thick or thin lines with this brush.

When I first bought this, I was quite satisfied with the brush that came with it, but I recently bought a couple of eyeliner brushes, which make the application even more simple and precise. I can now see that while the brush that comes with the eyeliner is alright, it is not the best one out there. I need to dip into the product multiple times to complete my line.  A liner brush would definitely help in getting a perfect line faster as it can hold more product and you may not have to go back into the jar as many times!

The color is the perfect brown I was looking for! It is neither too light nor too dark. It is perfect for everyday office use, if you want a soft look.The gel liner is really creamy and goes on very smooth. Once you apply this on the lids, you need to wait for a few minutes for this to set. Once it is set, it does not transfer.

The eyeliner claims to be smudge proof. I was not able to rub out the swatch on my hand, once it set. It lasted on my lids the whole day without any fading or smudging.  My eyes also water sometimes due to my contact lenses. But the eye liner remains intact. Nothing to complain so far! It does claim to be a waterproof eyeliner. The swatch on my hands required a make-up remover to clean up. But the eyeliner on my very oily lids came out completely with just soap and water. Hey, that may be a good thing!

Cons of Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in Brown 952:

  1. i have used this one and find it pretty good for the liner. Cant apply it on my waterline though as it flakes out and irritates my eyes.. your EOTD is beautiful … What is the mascara that you have applied here ?

    1. Thanks Purva! I generally do not apply liner on my waterline. Did not know that this one may cause irritation in the waterline. *scared* The mascara I have used here is Almay Get up and Grow.

  2. What a beautiful EOTD and you have lined your eyes so well.I have the same question as Purva. Which mascara is that? Makes your lashes look quite dense and voluminous 🙂

  3. Good review, is the liner not sticking onto your contact lenses ? I faced this issue with Maybelline Black Gel liner, I used it on my waterline & it got stuck to my contact lenses & refused to go..

    1. Thanks Harine! I faced the same issue when I first started using gel eye liner. Two sets of contact lens got wasted due to that!!! But it was only during the application that it got on to the lens. Once applied on the eye lid, it does not move and get into my contact lens.
      Once I got used to applying gel liners, I do not face this problem now. Also, I find it better to use a liner brush, like the one from Real Techniques which was reviewed on IMBB earlier, or any bent liner brush to apply the liner. Both the times the gel liner stuck to my contact lens during application was when I used the brush that comes with this liner. It is not a bad brush, but not so easy to apply with. I also do not line my waterline. So I am not sure if it may transfer from the waterline to your lens. *scared*

  4. Hey padma… When did this get released… Has it come to India… Or hav i missed this one completely…. This one is fantastic….. I m gonna steal urs…. I just love it *drool* *drool* *drool*

    1. Sure Arpita! You can have mine! *puchhi* It is not released in India. It was released in North America quite long ago. I just found it after I came to Canada. Don’t know why Maybelline has not released this in India. Hope they do launch this in India soon. 🙂
