Maybelline Long Lasting Gel Liner

Maybelline Long Lasting Gel Liner Review

I am not the kind of person who can put on make-up on a daily basis. There are days that even putting on some face powder is already a chore for me. I am that kind of Momma. The always-tired-and-busy-no-time-to-comb-hair kind of Momma. But since I am a working Mom, I try my best to at least make myself presentable. I’ve got my own kikay kit.

Moisturizer. BB Cream (seldom used). Face powder. Lipstick + Lipbalm. And… my eyeliner!

I used to love liquid eyeliners! I put them on my upper eyelid and make my eyes more expressive (if its being huge doesn’t make it expressive enough hahaha). But last Sunday, I chance upon the Maybelline stall at Watson’s Festival Mall in Alabang. And I saw this Gel Liner currently at 50% off!

Since a mommy friend, from one of the support group I am a member of, has recently bought the product and highly recommended the product to us, I gave in and bought myself the gel liner. I consider it as my gift to myself.

I think it is a pretty good buy since I got it for half of its price. The container is cute and it has its own brush which makes me feel like I am gonna paint myself. Lol.

It is my first try on using a gel liner but surprisingly, it is very easy to apply unlike with liquid eyeliners. My hands are sometimes shaky which makes it a little hard for me to apply liquid eyeliner (but I still do anyway).

The Maybelline Gel Liner holds a promise that it has a long lasting staying power for up to 36 hours. I wasn’t able to test that 36 hours though since I do wash my face before I sleep in the evening of course. 😀

But I am happy to tell you about an instance on the 1st day that I tried applying the gel liner for the 1st time. Around 3 in the afternoon, I forgot that I was wearing an eyeliner and I scratched my eyelids using the back of the palm of my hands. I got panicky because whenever I accidentally do that habit while I am wearing liquid eyeliners, I end up looking like a descendant of kung fu panda. No kidding! Hahaha! But with gel liner, it didn’t happen. It just faded a little but it’s still there. As if I haven’t scratched it at all. 🙂

Overall, I love the Maybelline Gel Liner. Will I buy it again? Yes, especially if it’s on sale again by the time my gel liner container gets emptied. Hihi. I’m one thrifty Momma, you know.. 😀

If you plan on buying the product, grab it while you can! It’s on sale for only Php 199.50 until April 3, 2016. Happy shopping!

  1. Aloha beautiful,

  2. It is a steal! I’m guilty of hoarding eye make up but not using it since I’m intimated with how people in Youtube out them on haha.

  3. Maybelline is one of my most favourite drugstore makeup brands! I don’t wear eyeliner, but now I’m really curious to try this one.

  4. Uy! Sounds promising. Problema ko ang panda eyes sa liquid eyeliners eh. Hindi ko naman sya nakakamot kasi I put make up everyday talaga. But it would really smudge padin kahit ano gawin ko. I will try this one.

  5. Ayi

    Up to this day, I still dont know how to put an eyeliner :)) Never really a makeup person too.

    Waaah, I still don’t know how to use gels and liquid liners! For now, I;m sticking to pencils..

  7. My problem with gel liners in pots is they dry up fast. :/

  9. Not much of a make-up person here, but a liner is a must. It perks my eyes open kasi I have small ones. Would love to try this one.
