░ How-to: Apply Gel Eyeliner ░

Hello everyone! I'm back with another tutorial. More of a demonstration on applying gel eyeliner. I personally feel that gel liners are better than liquid ones because 
1. Gel eyeliners are applied with a brush--and that's a plus for precise drawing.
2. Using liquid eyeliners is not a very good option for people with shaky hands. Do you agree?
I very much opt to use brushes when lining my eyes. My top 2 ways of doing it is using gel eyeliners and using eyeshadow applied with an angled eyeliner brush. I think I demonstrated how I did that (lining the eyes with eyeshadow) in my recently uploaded tutorial. 
So I am here to judge the performance of the Maybelline EyeStudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner.

Let's enumerate the good sides of this product:
  • The packaging is really great. Glass container with an aluminum (or tin?) cover
  • Comes with a free brush, which is really of good quality
  • Color stays on for hours and hours and hours! I tried working out with it on and the sweat didn't make it fade away!
  • Intense color (01 Black)
  • Good price at 449.00PHP
  • Easily removed with eye makeup remover (Maybelline Eye and Lip Makeup Remover)
  • Available in all leading department stores and Maybelline counters in the Philippines.
A review will never be complete without cons being stated. However, there is just really ONE thing I disliked about the product as a whole.
  • The box gave me a difficult time getting the product out. I figured I had to tear the sides of the carton because of the traced broken lines, but didn't want to because I wanted the box to be whole for the review!
I hope you enjoyed my short review! 
You can watch the video for the demonstration down below.


  1. nice review and tutorial :) followed you. nice blog. looking forward to more revies and tutorials

  2. Love the review!Love watching your videos too.


  3. so what's the difference between tugging your lids and pulling it?

  4. Anna Banana, tugging means pulling VIGOROUSLY. Pulling "GENTLY" (as I took note in the video, you can watch it again if you missed that part) means to pull w/o much force.

  5. How does this fair compared to DollFace gel liners?? I've been wanting to buy this since it came out. But I'm stuck with my DF gel liner coz it's the best liner I've used and trying out other brands scares me.. It might not satisfy me.



  6. @Tracy You won't regret buying this gel eyeliner from Maybelline. It's the best I've ever used (I've never tried Dollface's Gel Liner pa kasi) I say give it a try. It's worth the price. :)
