My experience with Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil in Lustrous Sapphire
This gel pencil comes in black and blue and white packaging. The outer cover contains all the necessary information i.e. product description, manufacturing details, price, ingredients list etc. The gel pencil comes in a blue colored plastic packaging with a transparent cap. The blue colored pencil helps to identify the shade easily. It’s not a twist-up pencil that needs to be sharpened that means the product wastage! :/
This pencil is Crazily pigmented and shows vibrant color pay off with just one stroke!!! <3 <3
Texture and Shade:
Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Waterproof Lustrous Sapphire Gel Pencil has an extremely soft gel texture and it glides on effortlessly on the lids or waterline without any tugging. Once it dries down, it’s pretty much resistant to any smudging and it doesn’t cause any irritation to my eyes. Coming to the shade “Lustrous sapphire” is a beautiful sapphire blue color, very close to the indigo color. It’s a matte finish gel, which will definitely suit all skin tones.
This gel pencil has amazing staying power! I have watery eyes but it stays on and doesn’t run. It stays put on my eyes for minimum 6 hours in my waterline and more than 10 hours on my lash line easily but doesn’t stay for 16 hours as per the description. It stays on and on even with sweating, it doesn’t run. I wore it during my gym time once where it smudged a bit but nothing too noticeable. It stays intact yet comes off easily with my makeup remover or baby oil.
P.S- When you do strong colors like this on the eye, be sure the rest of your makeup (i.e. cheeks and lips) is soft and natural.
