If you don't mind spending a lot (about £28) then the ones by ByTerry called ombre blackstar can't be beaten in my opinion. They are amazing, don't need a primer and stay put all day. Misty Rock is a lovely colour that seems to suit everyone. I also really rate the ones by Laura mercier, and find that you can really choose the depth of colour you want from sheer to intense quite easily. Becca eye tint is also excellent and stays put all day. I've tried quite a few of the cheaper brands, and they've never been quite up to scratch sadly. I have heard good things about the Kiko brand eye sticks though that I think are around £5.
I bought a Lancome one today in a sort of taupe colour and then went into boots next door and bought a second one from collection 2000 in a pale pinky fawn colour. I wasn't sure about the second one but for £3.19 i don't really care. DD1 can have it if I don't like it.
I still have the test lines on my hand and the lancome teal one is still really vibrant despite me washing my hands 2 dozen times since applying it. I might go back and get that one too. I must say they are all still on the back of my hand but that one really stands out because the others I tried were all neutral shades.
