Gah! Have been wearing a nice blue Chantecaille waterproof eyeliner and love it but they've discontinued the blue. I have a choice of black, a mauve/purple, grey or brown. Scared of the purple tbh so which will I try? Sticking to,this brand as it's the one and only eyeliner I have found which stays put and doesn't smudge.

I use grey! Had a makeup trial and they suggested grey to be the nicest match - looks lovely against brown eyes!

Thanks chelsbels - grey is what I was leaning towards so you've sealed it!

I was always surprised that brown eye liner doesn't work with brown eyes, but it makes me look tired.

Purple really does look fab but go fir the grey if you'd not dare.

I have hazel eyes and brown is awful!!! Grey is the colour of choice. Blue looks nice and brings out the colour in my eyes but feel its a bit garish sometimes at my age. Grey is softer. Green is also good for me. You could also try that? Purple is a no no for my colouring. Makes my eyes look bloodshot!!!

I hazel/brown eyes.
I love Barry M metallics but they don't last long.

Purple is my favourite, it brings out the colour .
Dark grey
A Body Shop teal (didn't think I'd like it but it looks amazing on my eyes)
I have a grey Avon one that is blush over 20 year old

I wear purple. It makes hazel eyes look quite extraordinary.

Oooh that Nars colour looks pretty good. Grey ordered - can't wait til it comes! Okay, I have hooded lids and apply to my lower lash line ... Space NK lady did a full line and smudged it when I bought the blue. I've been going half way along recently. What will open my eyes up more - maybe the lower line is too 80's but if I do upper it just replicates on my eyelid iyswim. Any advice ladies? Really need to update my look!

I wear purple or khaki, stila ones are the best I've found.

I vote purple/muave. It really adds an extra spark.

Right purple and grey and bronze it is, thanks!
