Bombproof Liquid eyeliner? Seventeen Tattoo Me discontinued

I am bereft sad

Apparently this has been discontinued although it just says coming soon on the Boots website. I asked an assistant in Boots who said they had no idea but it may be re-launched at some point in the future.

I really need a new one so thought I'd suck up the cost and buy Urban Decay 24/7 liquid eyeliner but no, that too is discontinued. As is Bourjois clubbing liquid eyeliner.

Any recommendations for a liquid eyeliner that would survive a nuclear winter? Felt tips, pencils and gels don't last 5 minutes on me even with a decent primer. I just end up with smears under my eyebrows.

The Balm Schwing liner is as good as, if not better than, the Seventeen one imo.

NYX Matte Liquid Liner is also fab and looks the same on me at 9pm when I'm taking it off as it did just after application.

Apparently Kat Von D tattoo liner is the dogs for this, but I've not tried yet.

Oh thank you. I can get the schwing one delivered tomorrow without prime so I will give that a go.

I'm going on holiday on Saturday so won't get back into town.

With Prime I meant!

The Kat Von D one is amazing.

After much research and then buying the Kat Von D, I found it smudged within a couple of hours on me. Still looking.

Kat Von D tattoo liner has been brilliant for me! Highly recommend it for staying power and I find it easy to apply. It has been my best beauty but this year. I get the dark brown one rather than black and my skin type tends towards dry than oily if that makes a difference.

Bobbi Brown long lasting gel eyeliner in a little pot is really good. Kiko do a cheaper equivalent but although I like their similar totally ripped off versions of other BB products the BB one is much better in this case.

JesusTapdancingChrist Sun 08-Oct-17 19:02:07

I didn't like the Kat Von D Tattoo liner. Not black enough and didn't have the staying power that it had been hyped up to have.

Sali Hughes says the Kiko waterproof liquid liner is bombproof here
She is usually right!

MulhuddartDrive Sun 08-Oct-17 19:11:45

The only eyeliner that stays put on me is from poundland of all places. It's amazing.

Are you sure it’s discontinued? Boots website said stock coming soon.

I've noticed that Seventeen sometimes have supply delays as I think their stuff is made in China. It probably will be back in stock at some point.

What you need is the Rimmel waterproof liquid liner (think it's called scandaleyes) in combination with the urban decay eyeshadow primer. Will not budge!

Escapepeas Mon 09-Oct-17 20:36:05

Kiko is brilliant but a bit messy as it’s gel and a paintbrush. I use a primer then dab it gently with a tissue to avoid transfer.

MikeUniformMike Mon 09-Oct-17 20:41:36

I was going to suggest Scandaleyes.

EarlessToothlessVagabond Mon 09-Oct-17 20:42:39

I have the collection 2000 one. It's great.

MikeUniformMike Mon 09-Oct-17 21:23:20

Yes to Collection. Excellent and not expensive.

I know which eyeliner you're talking about and the only close one is the MAC Liquilast. It is the same consistency- almost thick slightly tar like with the same brush.

DammitAllNamesAreTaken Tue 10-Oct-17 00:05:37

No liquid eyeliner or any eyeliner stays on me. The only one I have found is the 17 wet look lacquer eyeliner. And it is super black

Miss Sporty Pump Up Lash Waterproof is the BEST eyeliner in the world.

I used Urban Decay 24/7 previous to this and prefer Miss Sport it was an accidental discovery after losing my make up and needing cheap replacements but this is now a staple and at £2.49 it's worth at least a try.

pleasestopsnoring Tue 10-Oct-17 04:32:21

Primark. I use the pen as I’m no good with brush. The liquid is even better, I struggled to get it off my hand when i tried it out.

MeganChips Wed 11-Oct-17 16:33:13

Some great ideas here, thanks. I bought the Schwing one which is pretty good and gives a great line. It's not quite as bombproof but I don't end up wearing it anywhere I shouldn't be.

I might get a few of the others too. Just in the spirit of being fully informed!
