Comments about Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil:

I really wanted to love this. It glides on so smoothly. I bought both the Amethyst and Onyx colors and they're each highly pigmented. Unfortunately, the black one transfers and moves around within an hour of wear, even with a primer and setting the liner with matching eye shadow, making it essentially unwearable. The purple one does it a little, too, but nowhere near as badly. The color of it is very vibrant, but still not too loud for everyday wear.
The plastic the pencils are made of is very hard to sharpen, even with a premium sharpener, and you end up losing a lot of product because the liner itself is so soft.

Smudges sooooooo bad

      Comments about Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil:

      I don't know how other people find this product, but to me it was a total waste of money. Once I put it on, even before I blink, it starts to smudge into dark circles like pandas. Also, my eyes turned red after using it.

        I used the product as long as it lasted - 3-4 uses. Boo
        There is no way to sharpen this pencil. Too bad, bc I loved the product. It appears by reviews that I am not the only one with this sharpening problem. I have read all the reviews and the company that needs to stop giving advice on how to sharpen as it really does not work. The most honest reviews are the ones who say the liner is great if you don't mind paying for 3-4 uses.

            Comments about Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil:

            Wish I had found this before I bought 4 of the Smashbox gel pencils (which I LOVE but at twice the price). I actually went in to get the white gel pencil in the Smashbox, but since I am not as confident using the white, or know that I will like it, I thought I'd try a less expensive brand and Maybelinne is a great brand. This goes on and stays on equally as well as Smashbox. The pencil is a bit shorter, so not as much product.

              I like to play up my eyes just a touch and try to keep it pretty natural. Use this on just the outer corners of top lid applying a thin line. Gives a bit of definition and makes my blue eyes pop.

                  As with many of the other negative reviews, I was please with the product...until I realized that what you see it what you get. I was able to use this eyeliner for 2 weeks before it ran out. 2 weeks. And I don't even wear makeup everyday. I assume the twist at the bottom would give me more product, but I was wrong. Not only will I be buying another liner, but I'll be looking at another brand because that was just deceptive.

                  Comments about Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil:

                  I love this eyeliner that doesn't wipe off throughout the day or run down my face. I came here to see what to do when the tip ran out. Twisting the bottom did not provide more product to the tip. I read that we should sharpen the pencil like other pencils using an eye pencil sharpener. I gently rotated the pencil about 1/4 turn, twice. The whole thing broke into a jagged mess. It looked like a beaver found the pencil. It went right into the garbage can. So if you don't mind paying for about 1/4" of eyeliner and then go buy a new one, go for it! I would recommend it to someone who has plenty of time and money and doesn't mind frequently re-stocking their eyeliner.

                      Hello Kathleen! Thank you for contacting us about how to sharpen Eyestudio Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil. The product can be sharpened with any cosmetic sharpener. Turn the pencil gently in the sharpener 3 or 4 times, being careful not to apply excess pressure. After sharpening, remove all shavings from the blade edge. The pencil should be sharpened frequently so that 3 or 4 gentle turns are sufficient to achieve the desired result. The sharpener should be replaced whenever the blade has dulled and is no longer giving the expected results.

                      A:

                      We are glad you love these amazing shades but we are sorry you are having a hard time sharpening them. The Lasting Drama Gel Pencil does not swivel up. It 's sharpened just like a wooden pencil. Use a cosmetic pencil sharpener like our Maybelline Dual Sharpener. (see illustration on back of packaging)
                      For best results, insert the crayon of the pencil into the sharpener no more than 1/4 of an inch. If you push the pencil too far into the sharpener, it will be difficult to sharpen. Turn the pencil gently 3 or 4 times, being careful not to apply excess pressure. The pencil should be sharpened frequently so that 3 or 4 gentle turns are sufficient to achieve the desired result.
                      We hope this information helps you get many more uses from your liner.
