    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.

      Comments about Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil:

      I loved this product when I first started using it. Then it was time to sharpen. I used 3 different sharpeners, and even had my daughter try.... Still nothing. We twisted the bottom and nothing. Finally gave up and found my receipt. Returned and purchased a different brand. It's a shame because I thought I finally found a gel pencil I loved and didn't need to spend $20 on.

            I really like how soft the "pencil" is. Most pencil eyeliners are so hard it is difficult to get the color on my lid. This gel pencil makes the application super easy without any pain or pulling. Unfortunately the product makes my eyes water so much. At first I thought I had seasonal allergies, then figured out it was from the make up. I normally don't have issues with Maybelline products

                Finally found a way to nicely sharpen this pencil!!! Fill a cup with very hot tap water (I do this every morning and set my mascara in it). Take the cap off and set the gel pencil, pointed down, in the hot water for 1 min or so and using a regular eye pencil sharpener the casing sharpened like butter and the warm gel didn't break!! Happy happy happy.

                    Hello there Vixki! You can take any cosmetic sharpener and sharpen our Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil. The bottom should not turn and the pencil does not swivel. Despite the plastic coated appearance, the pencil can be sharpened. 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.

                    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.

                    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.

                    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!
