I thought I found the one, the perfect colour just what I wanted, but it's so hard, I can imagine it being used by dentists in their drills.
It drags badly on the lids, I tried warming it up, but that didn't work.
It's Clinique Olive-tini skinny stick.
I'm looking for the same colour, but softer.

Urban decay 25/7 glide in is good and loads of colours

mewkins Fri 26-Feb-16 13:47:47

Glide on sorry

OttiliaVonBCup Fri 26-Feb-16 15:21:05

Thanks, that's one brand I've never used.
Better glide is def. what I'm looking for.

OttiliaVonBCup Fri 26-Feb-16 16:03:40

Had a look online and there is a shade that seems very close.

I really rate Chanels eye liner, it is soft and easy to apply.

My new favourite

OttiliaVonBCup Fri 26-Feb-16 16:10:19

I'm after an olive green.
Ideally self sharpening, I see chanel have something as well.

I really rate Avon Glimmersticks. Cheap as chips, no need to sharpen, easy to apply and once on the colour really lasts. Try the Big and Daring one in Burnt Olive:

If you don't mind having to use a sharpener, Bourjois 16 hr Kohl & Contour in Vert Expressif is lovely and does exactly what it says on the tin. You can buy it in Boots and again it's cheap and cheerful:

I second the bourjois verte one. It lasts forever too.

OttiliaVonBCup Fri 26-Feb-16 19:36:11

Thanks!

I'll try them tomorrow.
I also found this

in moray

It's a shame the clinique one is dodgy, but I should have looked up the reviews on their site fist. Not a single good one.

I had an olive double wear Estée Lauder one and it was brilliant. Not sure if they still do it though.

Eachpeachpearplum1985 Fri 26-Feb-16 20:25:54

I second urban decay. So soft and easy to use.

Housewife2010 Fri 26-Feb-16 20:43:00

I third urban decay. Gorgeously soft and they set well. If you like them it's worth getting the sets at Christmas ( or in the January sales).

OttiliaVonBCup Fri 26-Feb-16 20:54:46

Oh Christmas seems a bit far, grin but I'll try the Urban decay, we have a counter nearby.

Oly5 Fri 26-Feb-16 20:57:20

I fourth Urban Decay. Best eyeliners ever. No drag. Amazing green colours. I use moss green and stash from there.. Both fab. Loads more colours too

OttiliaVonBCup Fri 26-Feb-16 21:00:14

Right, that's quite the consensus here.

OttiliaVonBCup Fri 26-Feb-16 21:00:57

Quite unanimous recommendations here.

OttiliaVonBCup Fri 26-Feb-16 21:01:22

Ah, double posted, sorry!

RapunzelStyle Fri 26-Feb-16 21:53:47

Avon glimmersticks all the way for me.

GreenGoth89 Fri 26-Feb-16 22:02:38

Kiko eyeliners are really good as well as make up forever - not sure what colours they do but they have felt tip one which are awesome!

toomuchinternets Sun 28-Feb-16 21:52:23

I fifth Urban Decay! SO soft, effortless glide, stays on all day.

ZacharyQuack Mon 29-Feb-16 03:23:48

Pixi eyeliners are very similar to Urban Decay. I like the Clinique Quickliner Intense pencils, but the Skinny Sticks are duds.

(Quite aside from Clinique's hmm chubby/skinny names. Don't alienate the fat chicks, Clinique. We buy a lot of makeup)

OttiliaVonBCup Mon 29-Feb-16 15:28:53

Didn't manage to go to the shops
but found this

Urban Decay are top of the list, then I'll work my way down.
