Four Favourite Eyeliners
I've tried a fair few eyeliners in my time in an attempt to find the perfect one for effortless application and a great finish that never rubs off. I don't think that eyeliner actually exists or if it does, I haven't found it, but I have found a few that come pretty close.
My most used eyeliner is the L'Oreal Super Liner in 'Intense Black'. It's a felt tip liner with quite a long, thin tip. I find the shape of it quite useful to do flicks and it's also possible to get a very thin line with it. I find it works best if you press it against the skin bit by bit rather than actually dragging it across the skin when applying it. It's very black and doesn't smudge or anything and I find that it's still on at the end of the day.
For so many years I used the Rimmel Waterproof Gel Eyeliner in '001 Black' because it is just so easy to apply. The actual applicator it comes with is quite thick but it's still easy to get a thin line. If you hold it at a different angle, it's also easy to get a thick line so doing flicks is super easy. Unless you want that perfect sort of flick with a tiny point at the end, then this might not be for you. The only problem with this is that it's not quite as black as the L'Oreal Super Liner and if you go over a spot you've already done it can just end up wiping the product off which is annoying. It is waterproof, however, which the L'Oreal eyeliner is not which is a benefit of this product if you're expecting to be wearing it for a long time or if you're planning on crying eg if you're watching the last Harry Potter movie </3
A more recent discovery for me is the Too Faced Perfect Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner. This is a pencil liner but it is absolutely amazing. Such a dark colour and so smooth. It glides on so easily because it's so soft and creamy. A bonus of this is that it's waterproof. I like to use this if I want a more smudgey line or if I'm just feeling lazy and don't want the perfect line. I expect it would also be great on the waterline but I don't use anything on my waterline due to eye problems (probably shouldn't wear eye makeup at all). It's a twist up pencil but I actually can't seem to twist it. Hopefully I'll manage it soon because it's going to run down after a few more uses.
Thirdly is something a little different which is the Kat Von D eyeliner (the name rubbed off so I don't know the actual name) in 'Black Metal Love'. This is a slightly more greyish black with bits of silver glitter in it. It's a very smooth, creamy pencil as well. I've found that with some glitter pencil they can really scratch the eye if they're quite hard but this one doesn't at all and applies just like something without glitter since the glitter pieces are so fine. It's easy to smudge but doesn't rub off through the day (or night) which is great. The only bad thing about this is that it isn't a perfect black colour and it's hard to get a thin line with it just because of the way it sharpens. That could just be mine though!
