Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner (new 36 hr formula) : Review, Swatch, Photos

ABOUT: Only our oil-free formula can hold highly concentrated pigments in a clear gel base so color is more intense and lines resist wear for hours.  Smudge-proof and waterproof, the most intense line for lasting drama.

PACKAGING:Simple & light weight plastic container & a screw lid.It is convenient to store and is travel friendly.The packaging is slightly different – its in a square base clear pot instead of the round glass one. The metallic lid has been replaced by a sleek black plastic one.

MY VIEWS:The newer version is more pigmented and jet black.It is smoother and glides on easily.It is easy to apply and the brush that comes along definitely helps in applying a smooth line.It dries quickly and I don’t need to layer it much.I have worn this for about 14hr and it looked fresh at that time too.I have used it on my waterline and it did not irritate my eyes.

Overall,I love this gel liner and highly recommend it.It is affordable,blackest black,easy to apply and stays on for a good amount of time.

These color biggies are basically cream shadow s that can be sued a s liners,eyeshadows and highlighter and I totally heart them for there job.This shade is too light to be used as a kajal or liner so i used it as an eyeshadow when i want to do a neutral eye look in a jiffy!!!

It can be used in the inner corners of the eyes for highlighting as well as an all over lid cream shadow.

It never flakes and the best part is the staying power.I have worn this maximum for about 10 hr and it looks fresh after that also.

These are easy to blends and work wonderfully as an eyeshadow base.I am totally smitten away by this shade as i it one of my personal favourite and I am looking forward to buying more as doing an eye look with this is a such a dream.

???????????????????????????????

Alos,little goes a long way.I have used the pencil almost 4-5 times all over lids but I hard felt the need to sharpen it.Today,i have sharpened it for the first time but i would earn that these are sift and break if sharpened fast.

Max Factor False Lash Effect Fusion Mascara-review and look~~

???????????????????????????????

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:Our mega volumising brush has been fused with our ultimate length formula to deliver incredible lash glamour.

It’s a winning, wowing combination: both volumizing AND lengthening effects means you can create a more impactful look than ever before. It’s set to become the must-have miracle for dramatic eyes.

Max Factor’s Award Winning Make-up Artist, Caroline Barnes: “It’s a fantastic product for the girl who demands it all! It delivers super full thick lashes, yet stretches the length too. There are no rules! You can wear it every day at work for a natural make-up look or layered up in the evenings to compliment a smoky eye for extreme lash glamour.

???????????????????????????????

PRICE: Rs.690 for 13.1 ml.

???????????????????????????????

PACKAGING:The mascara has a fat purple coloured tube with a big wand.The bristles are packed and the mascara never stays at the mouth of the tube which i really like.

FORMULA: The formula is pretty impressive.It is neither too thick nor very runny.It gives ample times for applying further coats and dries out nicely.I was really impressed by the wand as it doesnt make marks on my eyelids while applying mascara that is always a problem in some mascara.However,it is sometimes difficult to coat very sparse lashes ar thise that asre near the tear duct as the wand is huge for those areas.It piicks up right amount for one coat.

???????????????????????????????

PERFORMANCE: I am impressed by the overall performance of the mascara.It does add volume and lenghten the lashes to a great extent  BUT my Loreal volume million lashes mascar still scroes 5 on 5.

One coat of the mascar lenghtwns the lashes and further coats adds volume.It never clumps no matter how many coats you add!! I really love the effect.

???????????????????????????????

It can also be used as an everyday wear mascara by using only one coat.It doesnt give the full false lash effect but does add volume and length.
