Hi, just started using rimmel's exaggerate waterproof eyeliner and it does the trick!

I have the same issue. Just about the only makeup that can go within an inch of my eyes is Urban Decay. I feel a bit old now to still be pottering off to them but thankfully the girls that work there are lovely despite me being twice the age of almost everyone else there. It's worth a go.

Hmmm....can't help but would love to know what mascara you can use?
Btw, are you trying to line the inside rims? People with sensitive eyes often can't do that with any liner.

Do you mean liquid eyeliner or kohl? Agree with Urban Decay, I have their liquid eyeliner and it stays on v well.

Any waterproof one. Same with mascara.

Your natural eye liquid is making it run, and then it turn it stings.

Thank you I will defo check out urban decay then!
I can use boots natural collection water guard mascara no problem and only £1.99! I was ok with max factor false lash effect too.

The only brand i can use is Clinique - I'm really sensitive.

Priming your eyes and putting a base on your eye lids may help. Xxx

I have oily eyelids and put powder on my eyes before applying eye make up, it does help it sliding off. Have tried eye primers but they didn't do a better job than the powder. ( I have dry skin but oily eyelids, go figure!)

I use a primer, sliding off isn't the issue (it is without the primer, my lids are oily too but skin not!) my eyes are just very sensitive so lots of things cause them to water and sting!
