    Comments about Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil:

    I bought this for myself and my teen daughter. We loved it! It's the summer and we spend a lot of time outdoors. My daughter wanted something she could wear in the pool and the lake that would not run or smudge. This is perfect for the heat, stays on well.

        Comments about Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil:

        I purchased black, white, and blue before my trip to Vegas. I love Maybelline products. I was fabulous in Vegas. However, when I returned I had used most of the black and needed to sharpen the pencil. It was nearly impossible. The plastic is too hard. The gel is too soft. I was either breaking the gel or scratching myself with plastic. I guess I'll just buy these when I want a more dramatic look... For daily use I will stick to my CoverGirl Perfect Point Plus pencil... a simple twist and click and I have more to work with and it glides on smoothly... I think they should use that same method for this pencil instead of us having to sharpen it.

        Great liner. Absolutely impossible to sharpen. Do not believe the responses that you can use a "cosmetic sharpener" to sharpen. This is made of plastic, which is terrible for a sharpener. Waste of money. Don't do it.

          Comments about Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil:

          SO disappointed in this eyeliner. While the bold color is nice and it did glide on smoothly, once it came time to sharpen the pencil for the first time, the pencil was useless. Very difficult to sharpen. I used a couple different sharpeners and tried to be as careful as possible, but every time I'd go to use the pencil again, the gel would break off and I'd have to sharpen it again. Also, good luck correcting any mistakes or smudges. Hopefully you haven't done the rest of your makeup, or else you'll have to redo it after you wipe it all off trying to get rid of the mistake/smudge from the eyeliner.

          Absolutely would never buy this product again, nor would I ever recommend it to anyone. I was so frustrated by this product, I threw it out before I was even halfway through it.

              I purchased this to brighten my water line. It is a creamy pencil in a nude color. It is a slightly shimmer color with a satin finish. Didn't really like it because I usually try matte ones. But it didn't smudge/run throughout the day.

                  A:

                  We are sorry you are having a problem sharpening the Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil
                  This pencil does not swivel up. It sounds like the color chip on the end of your pencil is loose. We fill the pencils from the bottom end and then cap them with a color coded cap. While your end cap may turn, it does not dispense the liner.

                  Even though the pencil has a plastic coated appearance, it is sharpened just like any wooden pencil. Use any cosmetic pencil sharpener to sharpen it. We recommend using our Maybelline Dual Sharpener.

                  This new generation of gel liners provides great color payoff but needs a gentle touch to sharpen well. For best results, insert the pencil into the sharpener no more than 1/4 of an inch. If you push the pencil too far into the sharpener, the blade will grab too much and become difficult to sharpen. The goal is to shave off the resin in a thin curl to reveal more liner. The pencil should be sharpened frequently so that 3 or 4 gentle turns are sufficient to achieve the desired result.

                  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.

The sharpener should be replaced whenever the blade has dulled and is no longer giving the expected results.

                  While they are both dark shades, the sleek onyx 601 is a black and the charcoal 602 is a deep gray. If black liner tends to look too harsh on you, charcoal is a softer alternative!
