Good Afternoon Friends!
It has been a while since Maybelline launched their new Gel eye pencils which they claim to be waterproof. I wanted to try them but I wasn’t sure about which color to start with as all the colors were attracting me. So I decided to get all the shades to give the full collection a try. I haven’t tried all of the shades yet, but I have swatched them for you. Today I’ll be sharing the swatches of all the 9 colors of ‘Maybelline New York Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencils’.
The eye pencils retail for INR 499 each but I purchased them from Amazon which was offering them at a discounted price of INR 399 (when I bought it, presently they are sold at INR 499 on Amazon too). (BUY HERE)
Product Quantity: 1.1 gm
Shades available in the collection:
1. Sleek Onyx
This is the black pencil from the collection. It is not the blackest black but is more towards a softer black shade. It actually can be considered as a deep gray.
2. Smooth Charcoal
Smooth charcoal is a gray colored liner which can be a good alternative to black eyes. It is something I personally like to use as deep black does not always suit me.
3. Glazed Toffee
The brown of the collection is called glazed toffee. It is a matte brown color which is good to use to get a softer look.
4. Striking Copper
It is my second favorite shade from the collection. As the name says, it is a copper colored pencil with a pearly finish. The color looks beautiful with Indian Outfits.
5. Polished Amethyst
Polished Amethyst is a pearly purple colored pencil.
6. Lustrous Sapphire.
This is a matte deep blue colored pencil which is very much comparable to L’Oreal’s Silkissime eyeliner in Cobalt Blue, expect the fact that the one from L’Oreal has a shine and this one is matte.
7. Glossy Emerald
A bright emerald green. This one too has a pearly shine. The consistency and the opaqueness of the color make this one my most loved pencil from the collection.
8. Silken Turquoise
I always get attracted towards turquoise eye products, be it a liner pencil or a shadow. Silken Turquoise is no different. It is a beautiful turquoise blue colored pencil with a pearly finish.
9. Soft Nude
Soft nude is a creamy white colored pencil which is perfect for water-line and inner corners.
My initial thoughts on Maybelline New York Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil:
I haven’t used the pencils enough to give a full review yet, but I have used them once or twice and I can already say that they are good. They are very smooth and creamy to apply and once set, they do not smudge.
Have you tried these eye pencils? What do you think about them? Which one do you like the most?
