I have been searching high and low for the best liquid eyeliner. I have used eyeliners from drugstores to high end name brands and I just cannot seem to find one that works well. I find that most end up cracking, peeling, or smearing off my eyelids.
Just wondering what brands you ladies are using and how well it's working for you.
I've given up on liquid eyeliner! I can't find any that actually stay on me. I now swear by the Sephora waterproof cream liner.
Lime crime uni liner in Quill, I have used many different liners and this for intensity or black and staying power is the best I have ever used. It stays on all day for me and through a workout at the gym, but comes off easily with warm water,The other colours are also amazing if you are inclined towards coloured liners
I've tried all sorts from Loreal to Mac, and none of them would last long. But what I swear by now is estee lauder Double Wear liquid eyeliner. It has a small tip so you can do thin lines or just press a bit and its thick & best of all it lasts forever! I have woken up the next day (bad, I know!) and my eye wings are still in tact.
I second the gel liner! I haven't used a lot of brands yet though. I actually picked up some e.l.f. gel liner for about $2 because I wanted to see how I liked it. I love that you can get a similar look to liquid liner but since you're applying it with a brush I feel like I get a more defined, steady line.
My very favorite is the Kat Von D tattoo liner in "Trooper". It's a little pricier ($18), but for me, it's totally worth it. That stuff does not budge. The color is great, it lasts all day and it's a pen with a brush tip (I hate felt-tipped ones).
The only downside I've found is that you need to get it right the first time. Once it dries, you can't go over it again, otherwise it will come off. But that's not too bad.
Trooper inks in sharp, elegant lines. Perfect for the pocket/purse. (+ it tattoos well for temp ink...) I 2nd Bianca's suggestion!
L'Oreal Lineur Intense in the black tube is the *best* liquid liner I have used. It really lasts a long time. I prefer gels, but I have this in my purse for emergencies :)
I've got a lot of liners to try out! So it seems the gels and cream liners are the clear winners. I think I am done with liquid, I just cannot seem to find any that work for me. :)
I've been using Maybelline Lasting Drama gel eyeliner, and I have found it to hold up well throughout the day and in the heat. (It's supposed to be a 24 hour formula...) It's the only one I've ever tried, but I like it. I use it with a MAC eyeliner brush and it goes on smooth, but I can build it as I like.
I third the gel eyeliner. I like the matte look it gives as opposed to the shiny one that liquid liner gives. My favorite gel liner is MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack
I love maybelline line stiletto!
I've used so many different liners it's not even funny. I love the Revlon ColorStay Liquid Liner. It lasts all day on me, even when my face decides it's going to be a oily mess. Then again, with the making it last I always use primer (usually Urban Decay) and a setting spray, I swear by the Mehron Barrier Spray. None of my make-up budges with that stuff. :)
