I have been searching for the Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Liners for the longest; I went to several different pharmacies in my area, such as Duane Reade, Rite Aid, and CVS.  I FINALLY found the  Gel Liners at the Duane Reade on the Corner of Montague Street & Court Street (Brooklyn Heights).  For my Brooklyn people who are searching for them, they had a good amount there, unlike the one on Jay St & Fulton.  

The Gel Liner’s come in 4 colors: 
1. Black
2. Brown
3. Grey (Purchased)
4. Plum (Purchased)
Maybelline’s Claims: Only our oil-free formula can hold highly concentrated pigments in a clear gel base.

  • So color is more intense and lines resist wear for 24 hours.
  • Smudge-proof and Water-proof.
  • The most intense line for lasting drama.

Price: $9.99 

I also purchased this, L’Oreal’s Telescopic Explosion.  It was suggested to me by one of my Sorors.  I tried it last night. I don’t really like it.  For $9.49 I think it could be a whole lot better. What my MF 2000 Calorie Mascara did for me in one application, I had to apply at least 4 coats to get the look I wanted with L’Oreal’s Telescopic Explosion.  It didn’t clump or flake, nor did it smudge.  It just didn’t do anything for my lashes.  


I’ve saved the BEST for last!  Viva Glam’s Cindy & Gaga! (Available for a limited time – 12 months)
Price: $14 – All proceeds of VIVA GLAM Lipstick and Lipglass is donated to the M·A·C AIDS Fund to support men, women, and children living with HIV and AIDS.
I LOVE them BOTH! I wore Gaga last night lined my lips with Chestnut Liner, layered Pinkarat Lustreglass … This is how it looked. 


I also picked up: Funtabulous Dazzleglass for Jonesy

Look out for swatches & haul on my youtube channel

  1. yay! I can’t wait : ) I love that color.

    How did you like that liner? I saw it in my Dwane Reade too but I didn’t want to pick it up until I found some feedback. I use the pen but i find it smudges by the day its on my lid. Maybe I have an oily lid and need something to use so that my liner doesn’t smudge. Recommendations?

  2. The gel liner works well. It has staying power & it’s waterproof. You need an eye lid primer. I like urban decay’s primer potion.
