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!
Pros of Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in Brown 952:
- Beautiful brown color that is neither too light nor too dark.
- Good creamy formula.
- Comes with a decent easy-to-use brush.
- Lasts through the day with no fading or flaking or smudging, unless you rub your eyes very hard!
Cons of Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in Brown 952:
- Requires a few minutes to set.
- Not totally smudge proof as it claims – can smudge if you rub your eyes very hard, but that might be due to my oily lids!
Would I Recommend Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in Brown 952?
