I'm after a black liquid/gel eyeliner that doesn't transfer to my upper eyelid. I seem to have really oily eyelids and every eyeliner I've tried just becomes a blurry mess sad
I'm currently using the Illamasqua presision ink one and that's not to bad but still smudges. Any recommendations?

I don't have a recommendation for a liquid eyeliner, sorry, but have you tried using a primer first? My eye makeup stays put all day with Urban Decay's primer (comes in a little purple tube - brilliant stuff)

Body shop liquid eyeliner

You could try setting the liner with a powder eyeshadow. Use a thin angled brush to press a black eyeshadow over the liquid liner. This might stop it smudging. If you're happy with that result, you can try using different coloured or sparkly eyeshadows to change the look of your liner.

Or try Kat Von D's tattoo liner in Trooper, that stuff doesn't budge.

Kat Von D tattoo liner is great. I also have very oily eyelids and it doesn't budge.

Oh MAC's waterproof eyeliner. Comes in a tiddly tube and is applied with a brush. Utterly brilliant...only comes off with olive oil on a cotton pad.

I use Rimmel Glam Eyes which doesn't transfer like others I've tried.

Yep, Kat Von D Tattoo liner is brilliant. I wore it in +35 degree heat this summer and even went for swim in the sea and it didn't budge!

I have the same problem, I use the Rimmel waterproof one which stays

It's only a fiver too

Guerlain. Comes in a beautiful bottle too.

Currently I use Maybelline tattoo eyeshadows applied with a fine brush.

Bobbi Brown has a new one out. A bit sparkly too which is nice. In a tube. The solid one with brush runs for me.

Going to check out the Kat von D Tattoo. Sounds perfect!

Thank you everyone! A lot of good suggestions here! Feeling hopeful that I'll find one that stays put smile

Collection do one that's waterproof and doesn't budge, it's in a little blue bottle but can't remember what it's called.

GOSH from super drug doesn't shift without heavy duty eye make up remover.

JaceLancs Sat 05-Nov-16 18:51:38

I have an Estée Lauder one that doesn't shift at all

Kat Von D's tattoo liner. I have tried hundreds of different ones, all smudgy, until someone brought me one of these back from the US a few years ago. I ended up bulk buying the next time I went, and now the brand is sold in Debenhams.

Can I ask a Kat Von D question?

I have OP's problem after years of successful no7 use, aging and sagging, greasy eyelid is working against it. I used another cheaper brand that claims to be 'tattoo' no budge style and yes it didn't budge. However, it took so long to dry I kept assuming it was dry, relaxing my eyes and getting it all over my upper eyelids.

So the question in short is, does Kat Von D take ages to dry? I don't want to spend all that on an eyeliner to find that out?

How liquid are we talking? Like dipping in a pot?

If you are happy with a "pen" then I wholeheartedly recommend Stila stay all day.
I researched it after I was sick of smudges. My eyes water whenever I laugh so it was happening a lot - haven't looked back since i bought this and you can get it from boots ( I think) m&s, asos etc

Another recommendation for the MAC stuff here - it's impossible to get it off even when you're really trying!

Benefit they're real. I had the same problem as my upper lids are starting to droop and colour transfers easily. I used urban decay primer which stopped the transfer.

However on another note I was noticing that as my eyes were looking more hooded, wearing liquid eyeliner was just making my eyes look piggier and less wide awake and open. I've since ditched wearing liquid eyeliner and look much better as a result. Has anyone else experienced this?
