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 have to say that the best liquid liner I've used is the NYC Liquid Liner. Theyre like $3 at Target. Its super black and has a shiny finish. If you want a matte finish I like my ELF cream liner (also $3 at Target) is better than my MAC one. It doesnt glide on as easily but its richer.
i agree do gel liner, i hate that liquid can break. tips with gel/cream liners always make sure you close the lid when not in use and always close tight other wise it will dry out. i actually love a brand from a makeup line called zethina
i love it, i've also heard good things about
i can't give a review about it though, i will be ordering from them soon to test them out.
I just got the Tarte amazonian clay waterprooof eyeliner and it is AMAZING! The black goes on so well and stays even better than the Sephora brand I was using before. I can't wait to try other colors!
Also, it's a natural product. That's a huge plus in my book! :)
I have found 2 over drug stor brands that I now LOVE. The first is black from Palladio ( this can be found at beauty supply stores or Ulta stores). The second fave is now the Maybelline eye studio pot in black. Its waterproof and long wear i think 10 to 12 hours and comes with its own brush which I have used with other cream liners so far and its a great little brush. My fave from a "better" line is Lancome's artliner in Nior ( this can be found at Sephora or department stores). This one is great and doesnt say long wear but I have found that it wears all day and doesnt smudge. Hope this helps you on your adventures in liquid liner!!
I like the gel eyeliners personally. I usually use Mac fluidline in blacktrack, i also like the physicians formula (drugstore) gel eyeliners, they come in stacks of 3 different colors. I like the Inglot brand cream eyeliners- they also come in a bunch of cool colors like red and pink, and the black is super dark, but they do drag a bit on application. If you do decide on gel/cream eyeliner, i recommend buying a bent e/l brush for application. It makes all the difference. Sonia Kashuk makes a good cheap one that they sell at target, has a white handle. Also heard good things about the lancome artliner or kat von d liner.

someone mentioned the Sephora waterproof cream liner and i recently switched to that from Stila's cream liner (which is great, but dries out in the pot, leaving you with a lot of wasted liner). i'm in LOVE with the Sephora cream liner! so far, it hasn't flaked, cracked or smeared and my lids tend to get a little oily by the end of the day, so not getting liner in my lid crease is a godsend. i find the cream liners easier to work with. i'm not very good with liquid liner and eventually gave up when i discovered cream liners.
Maybelline do a fantastic gel liner that is not overly expensive and it has awesome staying power. I usually use Rimmel London exaggerate eyeliner for everyday use as I love the application wand and it gives me very black lines that stay put, very reasonably priced :)
I use Prestige Liquid Eyeliner in 01-Black, have been using it almost 8 years now, it is the best eyeliner you will ever use! It don't smudge, crack or peel, it goes on very smooth, has a foam applicator so you can decide the thickness of the line, it is AMAZING, I will not use any other eyeliner. You can try CVS but I think they stopped selling it, the only place I can find it in my area is Ulta but I also live in hickville. It only costs $6.
I use basic wet n wild liquid all the time. it's $2 so it won't hurt to try it out. I've spent more on other eyeliners before but I keep coming back to it.
I use Maybelline line Stiletto which sets well and doesn't smear etc even during out hot ,humid NZ Summers. Second to that for extreme staying power I use Shisado Gel liner which comes in a lovely old school styles pot. If you are worried about them smearing try setting the liquid with a black powder
