Eyeliner crayon/chubby sticks

Recommendations needed, please! I was enjoying using the Smashbox Shadow Liners but they've stopped doing them. Anything similar that works and is about the same price (£17) or less?

Ideally I'd like a dark or olive green like the Smashbox one I was using, but a dark brown or black would be fine too.

I think the chubbiness is the most important factor as I'm inexpert in applying eyeliner and crayons seem to be the most idiotproof.

I have a couple of MUA crayons which I really like. They're cheap too, I think I bought 2 for £5 or £6.

Definitely the MUA ones or Collection.

The charlotte tilbury colour chameleon pencils are lovely - they are designed to complement your eye colour and make your eyes really stand out.

I've got a Collection one that I like in a sort of bronze/brown colour. I think it may be waterproof and it certainly stays on all day and is really cheap.

Not crayons but the Maybelline Colour Tattoos are the best budget cream eyeshadows I've used.

Kiko do lovely blendable crayons.

If money was no object I'd recommend the By Terry Ombre Blackstar crayons or The Trish McEvoy 24 Hour Eyeshadow sticks. Both amazing.

Thanks all! I like the sound of the Charlotte Tilbury (but will have to save up) or MUA. Are the MUA ones these? INCREDIBLY cheap if so!

Barry m do a chubby pencil that I use. That's an olive green. I have quite a bright green one as well that's surprisingly nice.

I had a Clinique one as well (think it was Clinique) that was a chubby stick basically an eye version on the lip ones.

Thank you! Such good tips.

These are the MUA ones

Another vote for the Maybelline Colour Tattoos. Amazing and got me back into eye make up on a daily basis. I am so petrified that they'll discontinue them envy that I have at least two unopened jars of my fave colours (purple, navy, silver, peacock green). I luffs this brand with an unseemly passion. blush

I will also use the Rimmel ScandaleyesShadow Stick when I want a neat application rather than the full on wow. Lots of people asking for details as they really pop.

The MUA and Rimmel ones look amazing.

Can't wait til I have time to get to Superdrug/Boots. Happy days. smile

I bought one of the Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleons and I had a lot of 'You look nice' comments when wearing it.

Of course it could be a coincidence.

Distraught to learn that they've discontinued the Smashbox ones! sad

leedy, I know! I discovered them late, as well –apparently they discontinued them ages ago but brought back remaining stocks to sell on the UK website, which was when I first heard of them. I only managed to get one. sad
