One of my all-time favourite eyeshadow palettes is probably one…
I love creating a little drama with a bold eye pencil, but often I’m left with a smudgey mess (I’m looking at you, UD 24/7 pencils). But the Maybelline Lasting Drama Wateproof Gel Pencils promise 16hr waterproof wear and “high-tenacity” pigments.
The Lasting Drama pencils come in 5 shades ($11.99 CAD). The idea is that the pencil is a hybrid of a typical gel liner in pot form only in the format of an easy-to-use pencil. The result is a creamy, pigmented formula that glides and smooth and doesn’t smudge.
The boldest of the shades, this is a perfect, opaque matte black.
A nice matte grey that is a bit sheer on first pass but builds up to a soft finish.
I love this brown shade, it really makes my eyes pop without looking overdone.
OMG this royal blue is amazing. I often pair it with my fave Benefit They’re Real blue mascara.
White eye pencils are really coming back in style, and not just on the waterline. This one was a bit more sheer than I would like but still a cool concept.
These are all 1x swatches except the white is 2x. Don’t press too hard on these or you’ll smoosh the tip!
I used Sleek Onyx first to tightline the lashline, then I went over top with Lustruous Sapphire.
I added Cashmere White to the waterline but it didn’t stay put for very long. The other two shades though, all day smudge-free wear. And you definitely need some oil-based makeup remover to get it off!
These eye pencils are pretty good! The best performing are the black, blue and brown. The white and grey need a bit more work. These are available beginning this month in Canada and the US!
