Maybelline Eye Studio Creamy Gel Eyeliner S09

I picked up the Maybelline Eye Studio Creamy Gel Eyeliner S09 Purple (S$19.90) at the Watsons in Bugis Junction earlier today. Maybelline is not included in the 20% discount that Watsons currently has for some brands, but I was able to use a S$2 coupon from the stack of coupons I received for signing up for the Watsons membership card. The membership card is S$5 for lifetime membership.

The S09 is a limited edition shade from Japan but it is actually manufactured in Korea. It has been almost a year since the date of manufacture but based on the tester that I tried in the store, the texture is still fresh and feels alright.

Like the Kate version, a small liner brush is included.

Here's the swatch from my earlier post, for those who missed it.

The TV CM from Japan for the black version.

In Japan, there is also a Lasting Gel Brow and Lasting Shine Gel Eyeshadows.

The gel eyeliner looks really nice! I think I am more interested in the cream shadows but I don't think that collection will come here - we got the eye studio quads, for instance, but not the pencil eyeliners (which is a shame as it looks like there is a pink colour - I am still searching for the perfect pink liner).

The gel shadows were really interesting!! Hopefully it will make it to Singapore!!!

The eyeliner has a reddish tint in the pics of it in the pot...but the swatch doesn' that just from the lighting?

hi agmini,
the eyeliner looks quite red/burgundy-toned in the pot but when applied, it's actually more purple. The swatch is the more accurate pic of how it looks when applied.

I too just bought the purple gel eyeliner recently. There's 20% at Guardian Pharmacy. Lovely! Am I the only one who find the texture of this purple liner softer and creamier than the black one?

The lasting gel brow and shadows look very interesting. Pity we don't have it here.

Hi Haru,

For the Watson membership card, can it be done at any Watson? How long does it take to receive the card?

Haru said...

Hi the watsons card can be purchased at any watsons store. You don't even need to fill out a form. Just pay $5 for the card and they give it to you on the spot along with a bunch of coupons. The coupons can be used until end June.

hi Pris,
I don't own MAC Macroviolet, but based on the swatches of macroviolet on this blog, it does look similar to the Maybelline Creamy Gel Eyeliner S09.
