Great pigment, applies smoothly, but it smears everywhere. If your going for the panda look, I would highly recommend!

      Comments about Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil:

      I loved this eyeliner a couple years ago and had it in several colors. I would usually line my bottom lashes, smudge it out, and it would set and last forever. But during that time, I noticed it was very irritating to my eyes...like there was a film/stickiness. I haven't used it in a long time and my eyes have felt normal ever since. If it works for you without irritation, then that's good. Just beware.

        I've tried the most expensive eyeliners and they all smudge and run on my greasy hooded eyelids. This Maybelline one lasts as long as the expensive waterproof eyeliners, for a fraction of their price. It's smooth and has great pigment and will last me all day in the Miami humidity with very little smudging.

            Comments about Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil:

            I can't believe people think this product is a scam or a rip-off and that people felt the need to return it! This is not a self-sharpening pencil liner...I used a regular cosmetic sharpener that I have used for years and it sharpened up just fine just like anything else does, so I really don't get what all the fuss is about! My goodness, people! LOL.

            As for the product itself, I was looking to try a gel pencil eye liner to replace my brown/black liquid eyeliner that has been discontinued. This gel pencil goes on smoothly and easily and stays on all day. Really like this product. Also like that it is waterproof.

                Hi there! Despite the plastic coated appearance, the pencil can be sharpened using any cosmetic sharpener. 3-4 gentle turns will be enough to make a working point. Hope this helps!

                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.

                A:

                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.
