Anybody own a good-quality very dark grey eyeliner? All suggestions welcome: kohl, gel, liquid. Grey suits me best (black is too harsh, brown wrong with my skintone) but the one I have - I think it's L'Oreal - is too light and almost blue-ish. It gives me that delightful 80s look.
Avon Glimmersticks eyeliner in Saturn Grey is my all-time fave. I wear it every single day. It's a lovely charcoal grey, dark but not as harsh as black. And it lasts all day! And it's a twist-up. Actually cannot fault it!
I love my Estee Lauder double wear eye pencil in granite shade which is a dark grey. Its an easy to apply kohl that comes with a little smudger (I love that) and it is virtually smudge proof and lasts all day.
gosh lots of great recommendations here, you're all great! Sprinkle I looked up that Barry M online and I must say it's looking good - I want a really dark grey and that looks like it might be dark enough for me. And it's cheap enough to just buy and try, so thank you!
Have just bought No 7 Smoky Sparkle Eyeliner in gun metal, which I've only tried on my hand but liked - SmashBox and Too-Faced also did pencils which looked really nice but couldn't be bothered to pay twice as much as I don't use grey every day.
