Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner - Review, Photos & Swatches

For years I've been faithful to my MAC Blacktrack Fluidline. I'm still an avid user of that product but I wanted to branch out and use something for everyday use that wouldn't break the bank on a regular basis. I've seen the Maybelline gel liner a few times at my local drugstores but I never considered purchasing it. So in a way you can say that I purchased this on a whim. And to be honest, I don't regret purchasing it at all! For the most part, it did a really good job at staying on my eyes. I do like to pull off the winged eyeliner and I did notice a little bit of fading in the wing but then again, what eyeliner doesn't eventually fade over time?


AVAILABLE AT: Local drugstores. I bought mine at Walmart
PRICE:
$6-$8 USD
SIZE: 1.06 oz (3g)
VALUE FOR PRICE: 5/5
EASE OF USE: 5/5
PACKAGING: 4/5
MEETS EXPECTATIONS: 4/5
OVERALL USE: 5/5




PROS:

Inexpensive
Appears very black which I like since some eyeliners that say black come off as a charcoal color.
The brush that comes with it actually works really well
More product in the pot than MAC Fluidline
Color pay is a definite dupe to MAC Blacktrack Fluidline
Waterproof

CONS:
Availability. I was really lucky to find this since they're always out of stock.
Slight smudging
Doesn't really last 24 hours as it states



Can you tell which product is Maybelline and which is MAC?
