Hi everyone!

Are you guys obsessed with eyeliners? I know I am! hhihiih.. I have been using eyeliners since I started putting on makeup. I for one think that a makeup look is not complete without any eyeliner. It is definitely a must have in every girls kikay kit! 

Today, I am reviewing the Maybelline Eyestudio longlasting Gel liner  in black. I went to the mall  a couple of weeks ago and I saw that they have a sale on Maybelline products and the beauty clerk there told me that since they are releasing a new line of gel liners with better formulation, they are selling their gel liner at 50% off. Ohh boy..was I so happy!! Hahaha... I have been wanting to but their gel liners for so long but I was not able to afford it. I did not care if it is an old formula... as long as it is cheap..(why not chocnut?)I usually get rid of my eyeliners and mascara after 3 to 4 months so I figured this is perfect and I will not regret spending money on something I did not like.
Long story short...I have tried the product and read on if you want to know what I think about!

Name: Maybelline Eyestudio Longlasting Gel liner

Color: 01 Black
Bought from: SM City, Iloilo
Price: P449.00 (approx US$9) but I got it for 50% off at P224.5 (approx US$5)

What the package says: 



Using the brush that it came with, I swatched it on the back of my hand. I smudged it right away. 
I was highly unimpressed!! But here it is after letting the product set for about 30 seconds.

It is definitely waterproof! I had to smudge it a few times in order to take the product off (and it is already wet!). The longer it stays on the skin, the less likely it will smudge easily.

This is me wearing the eyeliner. I find is difficult to use the brush and I could not create a "perfect" wing.

I used it together with my Revlon Whipped Creme Makeup and it stayed on me for more than 6 hours. It was humid that night mind you!



It comes in a cute semitransparent  jar with a lid. It is very sturdy and looks like it will not break easily. The lid can be tightly closed so it won't dry easily. The brush that it came with is okay, I guess. I have not used it a lot because I find it a little difficult to use. But it is quiet handy since it is small and short enough to carry anywhere plus it has its own cover it will not get dirty easily.  I still prefer using a stiff angled brush when lining my eyes though.


The gel liner is very creamy and glides on easily. It does not have a strong odor. The color is very black and when applied, it is shiny at first but turns matte after a few seconds. At first, I thought it was not waterproof nor smudge proof as it claims to be but after about 30 seconds, the product really sticks on my skin and is difficult to smudge and is waterproof.

Lasting power:

As you can see from the pictures, unless you rub your eyes vigorously, the product stays put and does not budge nor crease.

In my case, spending P400+ ($US8) on a gel liner is a little expensive especially since I usually get rid of my eye products such as liquid liners and mascara after 3 to 4 month. But I have read the gel liners can be used for up to a year so I hope this will not dry out easily.
Almost all SM department stores carry Maybelline products so this is not hard to find.

What I like:

- Smudge proof, waterproof
-Easy to find
-Sturdy packaging
-Pigmented and creamy
-Does not irritate my eyes

Some Issues:

- I have only had this for weeks so I'm not sure how long until the product will dry out.


They have released a 36 hour version, so you might want to check it out as well since it claims to be even better than this one.

All in all, I love this product and  I am so happy I bought it! I still use my San San Waterproof Eyeliner pen since it is easier for me but one times when I want a  thinner and much precise wing or if I want to line my lower lash lash line, then this is my go to product. Summer is here in the Philippines so this product is great for those days when you need to look your best and you will be under the sun or you will be out for a long time. So, will I use repurchase this product?Heck yes!! I might try the 36 hour version though! :)

What type of eyeliner do you prefer? Have you tried this product? Please do let me know in the comments down below!!

Thank you for reading and take care!!



  1. I don't really like this Gel liner. Maybe it doesn't work for me or something. It creased me. I bought 2 of them in different time. First was the purple one which didn't work for me so I thought maybe because of the colour. Second time I bought the black one, yet it happened the same time. I used 1 time and I just left it on the size. If you want I can give it to you ^.^

    1. I think it depends on the lids maybe? I don't have oily lids so I guess that can be a factor.. :)

      thank you for dropping by!
