Im a huge liquid eyeliner fan but I cannot find one that doesn't smudge, rub off or run in the rain really easily.

Has anyone any recommendations?

Not exactly liquid but the Bobbi Brown Gel ones are the best in my opinion...they really stay put. More so than the MAC fluidline.

You beat me to it! I was going to suggest BB gel liner as well. It took me a couple of days to get the hang of it but I wouldn't use anything else now.

Thank you both! I have never tried gel liners but I think will be on my next purchase list...

I used to use Bobbi Brown gel, and MAC blacktrack fluidline. Have now swapped to Maybelline gel liner, comes with own brush and it's fantastic

Bobbi Brown are the best. For sure! Cheaper and also good are Barbara Daly @ Tesco and L'Oreál SuperLiner. Both those are liquid but applied with a tiered applicator so easy peasy.

Gel eyeliner is fantastic. I second BB but if you can't stretch that far the Maybelline and E.L.F ones are great (E.L.F is super cheap and good quality byt you'll need to buy an angled brush).

I'm a fan of MAC Fluidline and Lancome Artliner too.

I hate the gel ones. really hard to apply. I'm sticking with the Rimmel one (have tried maybeline, bourjois, clinique). It's dead cheap, very black and the brush is OK, if a bit thin.

I used the Rimmel for years but it ended up smudging everywhere sad

they might have changed the formula, I find it OK. I find a bit of primer first helps it stay put when it's hot and i'm sweaty. I use the "17" primer from Boots.

Maybelline Liner Express is really good I've been using it for years.
