Maybelline Glossy Emerald Lasting Drama Gel Pencil Review

Maybelline Glossy Emerald Lasting Drama Gel Pencil Review: Hey Guys! Today I’m going to review a product that I’m don’t use on myself too often. When it comes to my makeup, I usually do just foundation, blush, a little eyeshadow, mascara and a bright lip. On some days, I do use an eyeliner, but that’s very rare. I’m not so much of an eye makeup person, so I always keep it simple. But recently, Maybelline launched Lasting Drama Gel Pencils in beautiful shades and I knew I had to go and pick them up. So when the Diwali offers were on, I went and picked up two shades for my professional kit. The one I’m going to talk about today is the Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Pencil Glossy Emerald.

My Experience with Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Pencil Glossy Emerald

The gel pencil comes in a paper packaging which can be scrapped after opening. The cover of it has all the details about the product. The pencils are color coded which makes it so much easier to identify the shades. And saves a lot of time. The packaging, on the whole, is decent enough and nothing too fancy. The cover of the gel pencil though is a little flimsy and keeps coming off which can be a little convenient. Also, when it comes off sometimes, it ruins in the tip of the pencil and so you have to re-sharpen which results in product wastage. That’s the worst thing about pencils that need to be sharpened. The Glossy Emerald shade is a beautiful green shade like the name suggests. It’s so strongly pigmented and has just the right amount of shimmer to it. A swipe of the pencil on the eyelids adds just the right amount of pop to the eyes. The texture of the product is amazing. It’s creamy and glides on the lids so smoothly, it’s unbelievable. The best thing about the shades is that it works well on its own or even with a mix of other shades. The brand claims that it lasts for 16 hours but honestly, I haven’t worn it on for that many hours. Recently, I wore it on for 10 hours and it looked so good even at the end of the night. It doesn’t smudge or smear one bit. Even if you rub it lightly, it won’t budge. However, if you rub it hard, it will come off just a little. Initially, I thought its price of the product was a little on the higher side. But after using it and seeing the quality, I think its worth the money.
