I can’t believe 2011 is ending, feels like it happened so quickly, but I’m very thankful for my surrrogate family (IMBB) to be with me. For more than a year, I am visiting them almost every single day, love you guys :puchi: I can’t be more thankful for you guys for making me a part of your world, but also IMBB has been a major help to get me start writing again, I had let that quality of mine lie dormant for years 🙂
Okay, so before I start crying or reciting parvati-esque monologues, let me start with the review :hihi:
A girl can never have too many black eyeliners, I mean -seriously! Its the most basic necessity in a girl’s vanity and to find a good eyeliner for an oily-lid person like me is a big mission, seriously. Of the hundreds of pencils that I’ve tried, only a few made the cut of staying long and not smudging or transferring on my upper lid and this sure is a gem 🙂

My Experience with Maybelline Eye Studio Master Drama Eyeliner Midnight Master:
This liner is touted as a a twist-up gel liner. It also is claimed to be a dupe for the MAC Technakohl liner which I have reviewed before. This is like very very dark, like real jet black, super saturated black pigment of the liner. It is very soft and smooth and applies easily without tugging my eyes or needing me to apply any pressure. This is a twist-up pencil, but not retractable. The finish it gives can be compared to a gel liner. It applies great on the lash lines and when tightlined stays a really long time, but my lids are oily and I keep banging my head trying to make the liners stay on it. This transfers on my upper lid within no time and when I set it with an eyeshadow and all, it stays for 3-4 hours before fading/smudging out. I’d say this is a fairly good liner and non-oily girls can happily wear it 🙂
I have used this liner here also.
Comparison with MAC Technakohl Liner:
- This one is more pigmented and blacker than the Technakohl.
- With technakohl, you can make thin and thick lines. With this one, it kind of melts on your eyes, so makes thicker lines.
- Technakohl stays on my lids a little more than this, about an hour more.
- Both can be used on the waterline.
- Technakohl does not smudge on me or transfer on the upper lids.
- I love Technakohl, I kind of like this (get the drift??).
Summing it up:
Pros of Maybelline Eye Studio Master Drama Eyeliner Midnight Master:
- Highly pigmented.
- Creamy and easy to apply.
- Stays long.
- Decently priced.
- Imparts a gel liner like finish.
- Most people like this, some even call it a dupe for the MAC Technakohl, Urban decay and Stila liners.
Cons of Maybelline Eye Studio Master Drama Eyeliner Midnight Master:
- It will transfer and smudge on oily lids.
- The pencil is twist-up but not retractable, resulting in wasting a lot of product.
- The product is super creamy, so I have a feeling it is going to get over super quickly.
- I have no idea when they will launch the eye studio collection in India.
Hope you all liked the review, do let me know what you all are planning for the New Year 😉
