Eyeliner - what do you use?

I like Rimmel liquid eye liner but I stopped using it as when I did the flicks it would often wear off during the day! I want a new eyeliner but I'm thinking maybe a crayon or pencil might stay better?

I use this clinique and it doesn't smudge or budge. Plus it doesn't irritate my eyes like a lot of brands do.

The one I find has most staying power, (and I've tried ^a lot^), is a felt-tip style one from super drug that costs about 3 quid. I think the brand is B. Or MUA. Might be called Xtreme 24hr?
Gah. I'll look later. It's proper amazing. Will get me through a 12hr shift in the heat.

The Eyeko liquid liner pen in the M&S beauty advent calendar surprised me by staying put all day. Normally eyeliner migrates north by mid-afternoon.

Avon glimmerstick.
Absolutely love it!

Love the eyeko one in the M&S calendar too

I use the Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner stick and it seems to last well. It is expensive though so am tempted to try some of the cheaper options suggested above.

Definitely pot of gel liner with a good brush. Agree with Bobbi brown. Also like Estée Lauder ones.

The shimmery ones with glitter in dry out quickly so beware.

primark felt tip, only bettered by primark liquid, but I can't put on liquid without it getting everywhere so I stick to felt tip. £1.50 bargain!

Lenazabaglione Sun 15-Jan-17 13:47:49

MAC Liquidlast. Bombproof.

PrettyDarnQuick Sun 15-Jan-17 13:49:04

Blinc - look it up! It's lengendary in staying power due to different formulation.

UterusUterusGhali Sun 15-Jan-17 16:33:44

Mine was the Collection Extreme 24hour felt-tip.
That and tubing mascara will last a night shift on labour ward.

I found even gel slid down for me, but it's put through its paces.

17 Tattoo Me liquid eyeliner. Completely waterproof, doesn't flake, doesn't smudge. Amazing.

Cheesymonster Sun 15-Jan-17 16:46:48

I use the same one as uterus

It comes in brown which I prefer.

Halfling Sun 15-Jan-17 16:50:14

Bobby Brown Gel eyeliner. But 90% of the time I find myself reaching for Urban Decay 24/7 eye pencils which are my all time favourite.

bijouxxx Sun 15-Jan-17 20:39:47

I swear by the Maybelline master precise felt tip.

AndNoneForGretchenWieners Sun 15-Jan-17 20:44:10

I like the Seventeen Tattoo Me eyeliner but find that my eyelashes get covered in it and clump together when I apply it. Not sure if my technique is clumsy or if this is usual?

I also like the Collection Exaggerate waterproof eyeliner in a blue pot.

Izzydawg Sun 15-Jan-17 21:35:20

Second vote for Clinique quick liner fo eyes, doesn't budge

Robin7 Sun 15-Jan-17 21:44:04

Stila waterproof liquid liner (the felt tip one). Doesn't smudge or flake!

DodoRevival Sun 15-Jan-17 21:46:51

17 Tattoo Me here. Nothing budges it!!!

Can be a nightmare if you smudge it when applying it though.

BusterGonad Mon 16-Jan-17 05:42:21

I use a old school pencil, I prefer them as you can draw a wonky line and then smudge the mistakes away, and then go back and add more and pop on some wings too! I've tried the pens etc and for me they just look so harsh. If I want a pen style line I'll use a makeup liner brush and wet it and dip it into a eyeshadow. Works really well for me, I'm more then at home with a brush.

Monkeybunkey Mon 16-Jan-17 13:18:20

Another vote for Avon Glimmerstick here. I've tried liquid eyeliners but always make such a mess!

StatisticallyChallenged Mon 16-Jan-17 13:53:38

Liquid- Clinique pretty easy or urban decay razor light
Gel- estee lauder double wear
Pencil - nars, Stila waterproof or urban decay 24/7
