Review : Maybelline Gel Liner

Hi everyone.. I'm back with another review :3.. I'm really interested with eyeliner lately. But nowadays  there's so many products with a great quality. It makes me hard to choose. Then I saw this! Maybelline Gel Liner in Brown..The price is reduced for clearance sale at Nona Lenongholic. Actualy I prefer to buy another black eyeliner. But I think I could give it a try since it gained so many good reviews.

And here it is, my new baby.

It's really tiny and I'm a little bit surprised.. I expected something bigger..but since you just need a little amount to apply, I guess it comes with the right amount :) 

There's a hint of shimmer
Comparation with my hand
 It comes with a brush :) which surprisingly has a really good quality for me.

It's quite thin and stiff


 Swatch on my eyelid

Now it's time for the eyeliner test!



Rub it several times faded off a little bit.. but I guess we won't rub our eyelid that hard.. 

Wash it with soap

Clean it with Maybelline Make-Up Remover.. Cleaned easily with several light swipe..

No stain!

My Personal Opinion
I love the brown color. Sometimes brown eyeliner, especially the liquid and gel type, looks similar with black eyeliner. But not this one. :) It's a nice medium brown with a hint of shimmer. The texture is more creamy than gel.Just dip the brush a little bit to the pot, you can draw the line easily on your lashline. The brush itself is quite stiff, make it easy to draw a line. I feel like painting on the paper with my art-brush at the moment.
This is the first time I'm using a gel liner, and I know why people are saying that using gel liner is really easy even for a newbie. :)

This is really good for daily use too. But if you have an oily lid, it might fade away faster. I use this for about 8 hours and it's stay still except if I accidentally rub my eyes, it faded away a little bit.

Now it's time to camwhore LOL...

Close up accidentally LOL *forgot to set the camera*

And  I realize my bang is covering my eyelid in the photo!!!! So annoying -.- *stupid me!* 

Hope you are not bored with my face xD 

-Easy to apply
-Comes with a brush
-The price is quite cheap, it's around Rp 89.000,00 or $10 at counter
-Soft brown color, really good for daily use!

-Not really travel friendly. It's kinda troublesome when you have to bring the brush and the pot together while pencil or liquid eyeliner are more handy for travelling. And you have to clean the brush immediately after using.
-Smudge and faded faster for those who have an oily lid. You should use eye primer before use this :)

Rating 4.5/5

But afterall I love this product <3 Especially for the color and easy application.

:3 What do you think about this product? Have you tried this out? (>ω<*)


  1. i love this gel eyeliner! kapan lalu i picked it up back in jkt. productnya lain ama yg dijual di australia (meskipun bilangnya sama gel eyelinernya tapi different packaging, different formula). really great product, tapi only yg dari asia haha bukan yg di oz. aneh kan?

  2. yep.. I love the brown color, not too dark :D... but kinda afraid to try the black one >_< this one smudge after 8 hours, but since it's brown.. it doesn't really matter...

    hee?? masaa?? baru tau.. kirain cuma beda packaging aja.. >.> aneh ya..tumbenan yang disini bagus... xD beberapa brand di luar bagus, masuk sini malah jadi kurang ok formulanya...

  3. saya suka perempuan yang berhias, tapi untuk urusan biaya, tunggu dulu

  4. ^^ yepp... It's quite good for a drugstore product.. :D

  5. I heards lots of good thing about maybelline gel liner.. i think i must give it a try!

  6. yep u can try this one..:D

    I should've arranged it downwards..but you can see the bigger size by click it on.. :) thanks for the advice,I'll arrange the picture better next time <3

    btw I went to fx and bought a pair of shoes at Pedro ! Omg I love their shoess... xD thanks for your info!^^

  7. ive always wanted to try this one too because it received many compliments :D
    thanks for the review!
    and oh, i wish u'd zoom up the swatch so we can see the true color of it ^_^

  8. Oooh, it's probably because my eyes actually get pretty dry. :P

  9. Really? It didn't flake at all on me, but when my lid is getting oily, it faded awaya little bit..

    Waw.. I guess I'll give it a try then :D thanks for your recommendation dear...

  10. I've used this for a bit, but found it to flake after a while. You should try the Wet "N" Wild gel liner! Super cheap and works WONDERFULLY! So surprised. I'd say it's my second favorite next to my Mac Fluid liner. You can check out all the reviews on! hahaha, that's like my guide site before trying ANY new beauty products.
