Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Liner

After a little browse around town last week I ended up buying the new Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Liner. It's currently on an introductory offer for £5.99 instead of £7.99, so if you're thinking of picking it up go get it now and save yourself some money.
I've never tried gel eyeliners before purely because I thought they would transfer on to my eyelid and be difficult to apply... Oh, how I was wrong.

The product comes in a little glass pot with a secure lid to prevent it drying out, along with an eyeliner brush. I automatically assumed that like most other products the brush would be useless but suprisingly, I love it! The hairs are compact and firm and allow you to draw a precise line. I even found this easier to use than my beloved Loreal Super Liner that I rave about constantly!


Another thing that suprised me was how long it lasted because the formula is incredibly creamy. I tested it out twice over the weekend on 7 hour work days, usually end up with a bit of fading or slight smudging but with this, nothing. It stayed put all day! Below is a picture of me after I'd returned home from work..

Overall I'm incredibly impressed, this is by far one of the best lower end products I've tried in a long time and I've already re-purchased so I have a back up!
Will you girls be trying this?
