What The Brand Claims: From a basic cat-eye look to a more dramatic winged liner, achieve it all with the intensely pigmented Maybelline New York Lasting Drama Pencil by Eye Studio! The Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Pencil has a long-lasting gel formula that helps achieve bold and intense pigmentation that lasts all day without any creasing. This smudge-resistant gel eyeliner glides on smoothly for intense definition and color that stays put all day.
Packaging: The liner comes in a color-coded pencil form that needs to be sharpened for further use. The pencil is easy to carry around and would easily fit into your bag.
Texture & Formula: True to its name, this really feels like a gel pencil. It is buttery smooth and just glides on the lids like a dream. There is absolutely no tugging or pulling of any sort. It sets quickly and does not budge. It is smudge proof as well as waterproof. In addition, these pencils come in 9 different colors and contain a good mix of mattes as well as shimmers.
Pigmentation: The liner is amazingly pigmented. A single swipe gives a rich color payoff which can built up as per one’s liking.
Color: This is a gorgeous copper shade with hints of golden shimmer. One can either wear this alone or use it as a base for the eyeshadow too. I have paired this eye pencil with a brown and golden shadow to create the following eye look.
Staying Power: Now this the best part about these pencils! These are really long-lasting and stay put for a good 7 plus hours which is again impressive. One actually needs a good makeup remover to get these off completely
