Dark blue eye pencil?

Any recommendations please? Softish kohl type of thing, deep blue, midnight / navy. Under £15 ideally.

I used to buy a great one from Lily Lolo but they don't do it any more.

Thanks smile

I adore Laura Mercier's Midnight Grey' which I find more blue than grey but it is £1.50 over budget!! I have grey/blue eyes and always get comments on my make up when I wear it. (there is a gorgeous brown copper too but you didn't ask for that!!)

Estée Lauder double wear eyeliner glides on and stays put for 12 hours or so. Think it's £16.99, but we'll worth it for the quality IMHO.

I'm jealous you can pull it off! I've tried it but always look like an 80's throwback

Boot's Natural Collection do dark blue - really cheap and easy to apply

Thanks so much, will look at all of these smile

Nursey nobody was more surprised than I was, it looks really good! I've been using black or brown since my last Lily Lolo blue ran out but I am just bored with them now!

Marks & Spencer have a lovely new one - Holly Sharpe for Limited Kajal Kohl.
It's really soft.
Comes in black also

Petitdonkey- I fancy the LM one. Just trying to order online-did you mean "stormy grey"? This is nearest I can see..

I bought the Estee Lauder for a friend though and now want one. Love the double wear eyeliners.

They have a great range of colours and I really rate their pencils.

I had a lovely YSL one. You just reminded me how nice it was.

Not boots no7. I bought the blue grey one and just can't get it to go on!

Mildred - sorry, it is Stormy Grey, don't know where I got that from! The LM is very soft so I just draw it on really messily then smudge it with a Mac short brush (think it's 214) - not good if you want a precise line - I end up looking like I've applied eyeshadow then I add a liquid line if I fancy it.

laregina Tue 18-Mar-14 14:56:52

themoneyone I bought that too - was it the Amazing Eyes one? It looked really nice when I tested it on the back of my hand but on my eyes it does nothing confused Same with Body Shop in French Navy.

I have an Avon glimmersticks navy eyeliner which is the perfect colour for my eyes (dark brown) and goes on/lasts really well.

money, have you tried sharpening it with a cosmetic pencil sharpener first?

cato75 Tue 18-Mar-14 15:14:19

The Body Shop do a lovely one called Blue Smoke which is blue/grey colour - under £15 I think too.

TulipOHare Tue 18-Mar-14 16:23:25

Am noting these down, thank you.

Today I tried a wet brush with some dark blue eyeshadow as liner. It looks pretty good, actually. Still need a pencil for when I'm in a rush though grin

Urdan decay 24/7

Clinique quickliner for eyes Intense in cobalt. Think I bought it after a Sali Hughes column recommendation and it's brilliant.

hollyisalovelyname Tue 18-Mar-14 17:06:48

Tulip the M& S one is really worth checking out. It's a kajal kohl pencil/crayon. It's very different to your 'normal' eye pencils . Unbelievably soft yet you can get a good line.

AnnField Tue 18-Mar-14 17:31:21

Urban Decay 24/7 for me too. Applies easily and stays on really well.

MildredH Tue 18-Mar-14 23:04:30

Thanks petit. Have negeotiated a night off from baby tomo with DH and am planning a little late night shopping grin
