Maybelline Brown Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner ~ Revisited

Brown eyeliner is my go-to product on "no-makeup-look" days. Like, when I'm only staying home and I don't want to wear makeup but I want my lash-less eyes to pop. I just tightline and smudge a brown pencil (always Bourjois Effet Smoky Pencil in Smoked Brown) on my waterline. It makes me feel better about staying in mismatched pyjamas & not wanting to brush my hair.
This is a my 2nd pot. I bought my first brown Maybelline Gel Liner from Malaysia during the time when I'd just started blogging. It is still there in our home in India, and I think it hasn't dried up completely.
It's soft, creamy, and has a buttery texture that glides on effortlessly on lids. You don't need to tug on your eyes to apply it evenly & the brush doesn't drag your delicate lids. You could use it like a cream eyeshadow if you can blend it well before it dries. It feels almost like a MAC Paintpot, or a Maybelline Color Tattoo. I compared it to MAC Constructivist, and they look quite similar except this is browner & Constuctivist has some red/purplish undertones.
The brush that comes with it is one of my favorite brushes of all time. It can be used as a concealer, brow & lip brush as well.
Liner does last the whole day & it is waterproof. The square swatch on my hand below needed some serious scrubbing to disappear.
Now for the eye swatch. Please know that I planned to apply it normally, but I couldn't help drawing a long wing 2 long wings & another one in between them.....
Don't you love the sparkly bits in it? Brown just looks better with some shiny, no? It always looks better on taffeta than on cotton.

Price ~ 4.99 (Rs.420) from Superdrug from Sainsbury's, but the same in Superdrug as well. It costs Rs.370-Rs.410 in India.
Availability ~ I think brown is not available in India. Only the one with silver swirl. You could check out L'Oreal 24HR Waterproof Gel Liner in Brown if you want a plain brown, but it costs more =\
My Rating ~ ♥♥♥♥♥  5/5

If you haven't seen Maybelline Gel Liner in Black, I used it in my Cat Eyeliner Tutorial

  6. Completely unrelated to make-up.. but you take amazing pictures! The focus and everything. Also, I love how you don't just take the picture of the thing itself, but also arrange stuff around it and create a scene setting. It somehow makes the product look more appealing. :)

  10. I am afraid to use liquid/gel liners because my hand's not very steady with the brush :( I always feel like i am missing out on so much of gorgeous stuff (this included) coz of that. The brown looks beautiful on your eyes and it's perfect to wear to work.

  17. I don't think I need to change my eyeliner as I'm quite happy with my brand. I use Giordani Gold Liquid Eye Liner and it's long-lasting, smudge-free and is smooth to use. All that I want.

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
