Maybelline is on a roller coaster ride, launching back to back products in the Indian market. I will be reviewing the waterproof gel pencil in glazed toffee which has become my go-to brown kohl. Maybelline launched the gel pencil in 9 beautiful shades, which are perfect for day or night, to create various colourful looks.

Packaging : The gel liner comes in the form of a wooden pencil with a plastic cap. The pencil comes in cardboard packaging which has details of the product, ingredients list, claims, how to use etc. The packing is quite simple and standard.

Shade : Glazed toffee is a true brown color, like a cup of coffee and will suit every eye color (especially black and brown).

Formula & Texture : The product has a very creamy and smooth formula. It glides like butter and does not tug. The formula is completely smudge-proof, which makes it suitable to wear on the lids as eyeliner too. It dries down matte within seconds and does not bleed. After drying, it gives a silky feeling and is very comfortable to wear.

Pigmentation : The pencil has amazing pigmentation. It gives true color with a single swipe. Even while using it on the waterline, you don’t need to layer it on for the color to show.

Staying power : The gel pencil stays for a good 5-6 hours without smudging or bleeding when applied on the waterline. If you have a water-y waterline, the product might come off within a few hours and settle on the lower lash line.

Availability : It is available online at Nykaa and Amazon plus all the major Maybelline counters.
