Battle Of The Eyeliners!

Hi everyone!

Today I’m doing a little high end versus drugstore gel eyeliners. I will be comparing Lancôme Long Wear Calligraphy Gel EyeLiner and Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner. 

Maybelline Eyestudio Gel Eyeliner

The Maybelline eyeliner is around £8 and is a highly popular eyeliner. The texture of the eyeliner is perfect, it’s not too hard or fluid, but just right and easy to work with. It’s really pigmented and the result is great!

Lancôme Long Wear Gel Eyeliner

The Lancôme eyeliner is around £20 and it’s not as well-known as other gel eyeliners like Maybelline, Mac and Bobbi Brown. I got this eyeliner for only £5 at a sale, which is the only reason why I bought it.

In the beginning I didn’t like much since I thought it was a too hard to work with as it’s a bit more stiff than the Maybelline one and I was used to Maybelline. The color payoff is the same as with the Maybelline one, so I wasn’t really impressed.

Which is better?

Here comes the reason this is actually better; it stays put! When I wear my gel eyeliner from Maybelline it always ends up in my crease, but I never had that problem with the gel eyeliner from Lancôme, even when it’s hot outside you can count on Lancôme to stay where you applied it. 

When taking off my makeup at night I find both eyeliners to be easy to remover, so it’s not like Lancôme is hard to get off again.

I wouldn’t ever pay full price for the eyeliner from Lancôme, but I will say you can feel the difference in the quality from the two eyeliners.

Have you tried either of these?
