Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner - Sapphire

Maybelline recently released new colours in their gel liner collection, and I picked up what looked like the last few pieces from Target.  The one I am reviewing now is the blue-toned Sapphire.

Like all of Maybelline's gel liners, this too comes in a glass pot, and a brush is included in the packaging.  Quite unlike applicators included with most products, this brush is actually very nice, so remember to clean it after every use, and it should last a good while.

On to the liner itself, it is a purple-blue colour, and while putting it on at home I was a bit disappointed because it looked almost black to me.  After I got a chance to take a look at it under a bit more light though, it definitely is NOT black.

Swatches on my arm:

MAC Fluidline Siahi
The liner goes on smoothly, but it takes a bit of time to dry, so if you aren't patient you could end up with a line near the eyebrow - not a good look :P   It doesn't fade or flake off, and it stays on my lids without smudging or disappearing once it sets.  I have tried it on my waterline, but since it isn't specifically written on the package regarding use on the waterline, I am not too sure about it.

How to Use:

I found this a good eyeliner for days when I don't want to bother with an eyeshadow (which would be most days) yet want a bit of colour.  I did try this on my waterline, just for fun, but as I said, I am not sure if it's safe for use that way.

Overall, a fun and not-too-expensive gel liner for anyone looking for some colour on the eyes.

Cost:  About $8.

  4. Appu - I don't this one is "limited edition"....the green liner has LE mentioned on the packaging - my feeble attempt at wriggling out of the black/blue fiasco :|

  10. I love your eyes Rads, you can do so much with them...I for one dont like lining my eyes as it makes them look even smaller...as it turns out i dont have deep set eyes, i have hooded eyes which I do quite like actually but keeps me out of all the fun that eye makeup offers that is the only thing :)
