Highliner Gel Eye Crayon by Marc Jacobs Beauty

"I really like this MJB Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon and after having used them for about a month now, I’d have to say I’m really impressed! I received these in the colors (Earth)quake (a dark brown) and Over(night) (a deep blue). What I love most about these eyeliners is how smooth and creamy they are. As I get older, my eyelids aren’t as smooth and as taut as they used to be, so some pencil type eyeliners tend to tug and pull at my lids, end up skipping, and being streaky, thus making it more time consuming than it should be to apply eyeliner. With these Highliners, however, I don’t have that issue! Since they are so pigmented (my boyfriend actually commented on how vivid my eyeliner looked when I was wearing Over(night), and he never notices those kinds of things) and have a gel formula, applying them in a nice clean line is really easy! The built-in sharpener in the bottom of the pencil is also a nice touch!Another thing I love about them is they are long lasting… and waterproof! I’ve worn both of the colors for about 10 hours straight and tested them on both the upper lid and lower lash line/waterline, and they lasted pretty well! It’s awesome because when you first apply the eyeliner, you have a little bit of time to smudge them for any smoky eye looks, but after a couple of minutes they don’t budge. I even tried rubbing my winged liner a few times with my finger (which probably didn’t do my eyelid any favors haha), and to my surprise it didn’t smudge at all (keep in mind I have normal to dry lids). I also swatched them on my hand, ran it under water and tried to rub the eyeliner swatches off, but again, they didn’t disappear or smudge and had very minimal fading. My eyes can get pretty watery, so after a few hours I did notice some fading on the outer parts of my waterline, but besides that, everything was pretty much intact until I removed my makeup that night (I just used my usual waterproof eye makeup remover, and it removed them pretty well with no issues).I’m hoping they expand the colors in this collection (which are inspired by Marc Jacob’s boldly bright resort 2017 collection) and eventually add a black eyeliner because it would probably be my holy grail black pencil/gel liner! « less" - Sephora user

Yeux Long Lasting Eyeliner Twist Pencil  by Chanel

"Chanel's regular pencil eyeliner has no lasting power whatsoever when I apply it, but upon reliable recommendation, I bought the Stylo Long Lasting liner and immediately saw what all the hype was about. I can apply the liner in the morning and go without touchups nearly all day (10-12 hours). Admittedly, I am a bit of a stickler for pristinely applied makeup, so I am likely more prone to touching up my face than the average woman! This formula is not the smoothest in application, but it works and the colour payoff is excellent. There is no tugging, and it can be smudged out with a brush, though I like it for precise definition. My only complaint is that it took me a few times to master sharpening the liner with the built-in sharpener. The key is not to wind up too much of the product because it can snap when it gets caught in the sharpening device. One doesn't get a lot of product for her buck, but the balancing factor is that one doesn't need to reapply or use too much in the first place.I wish there were some more dynamic and sparkly permanent colours in this eyeliner range. The hues available are classic and fool-proof, so like most Chanel products, there's no going wrong. I would definitely repurchase this product, and have already, and am pretty loath to try any other high-end liners again unless there proves to be a worthy competitor. « less" - Nordstrom user

Eye Definer by Dr. Hauschka

"Env: developmentAfter trying many different eyeliner pencils by various manufacturers, this product has by far been the **best waterproof pencil **that I have found. In fact, it can be sometimes be difficult for me to find because the stores around me are always sold out of it - probably because it is such a popular, terrific eyeliner! An amazing price at under $5.00, this pencil comes in an easy-to-use precision tube that has a built-in sharpener and a smudging tip that works well. I can apply this eyeliner in the morning and never have to do touch-ups because it doesn't smear, fade, or wear off throughout hours of wear. The pencils come in various colors (black is my fave!) and are easily transportable in your purse or makeup bag. I have found this product to be far superior to the more pricey, department store versions. The pencil is long-lasting and is a great value. I have allergies to many eye makeup products, as well, and this pencil does not cause my eyes to water or itch. I highly recommend it!Env: development Less" - viewpoints.com user

Long-Wear Waterproof Liner by Bobbi Brown Cosmetics

"I've never written a product review here before, but the Instant Long-Wear Makeup Remover deserves it. I recently went to waterproof smudge liners and mascara due to ever-present allergies. Remedy of keeping makeup on was solved, but now to get the Diorshow waterproof off was unbelievably impossible Nothing was working and I was completely undoing all of my hard work trying to preserve the skin around my eyes in my attempt to get this mascara off. Morning would come and I'd wake to unattractive black smears and could still feel mascara on my lashes. I was a little hesitant because of the price of this remover, but was willing to give it a try. Amazing!! Was another reviewer wrote, a little goes a long way, it's gentle, completely non-irritating (another problem with the allergies), and removes every last bit of eye makeup without undue abuse of the skin and leaves no residue upon a proper face cleansing. It delivers the value for the price. « less" - Sephora user

Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner by Rimmel

"I have been using the black eyeliner mostly on my waterline, since it says waterproof in the name, and so far I have only had a little bleed over onto the outer edges of my eyes. I also put this along the upper lash line, which was super easy to do since it is a soft pencil, and then took an angled eyeliner brush to smudge it out a little. This lasted me all day and I never had the need to touch it up. I was completely surprised by this because I have super oily lids!I had a hard time removing this eyeliner, however, and really had to rub it with a makeup wipe to get it off the top lash line. On the water line, however, I just ran a Q-tip over it and it glided off with ease.I am pretty impressed with the eyeliner and might actually try out the other colors available, seeing as there are 10 different colors to pick from!

Exaggerate Eye Definer by Rimmel

"I love this eyeliner. I've been using it for about a year now. Having not previously got on too well with liquid eyeliners, I thought I'd try this one because the applicator is quite firm, so you don't get brush bristles splaying out everywhere and making a mess. This is so easy to apply and is thick enough that it doesn't run into your eyes and make them sting. The black eyeliner is very black and lasts all day. There is a slight fading toward the end of the work day, but it takes a few seconds to touch up if you're heading out again straight from work.The staying power is great as it doesn't smudge - and is in fact reasonably hard to smudge even if you rub it with your finger. I often end up with it on the ends of my fingers and it's hard to wash off with just water once it's dried (which doesn't take very long at all). The eyeliner is easy to remove with eye makeup remover and I just use Boots Essentials on a cotton wool pad. The only downside is that the tip of the applicator has a tendency to come apart a little bit, so I've had to trim off tiny flappy bits of sponge with nail scissors.It's great for a thick, bold look on the upper lids but maybe not an ideal precision tool for more subtle makeup. I only tend to use it on my upper lids so not sure about its waterline staying power. I do pretty much half colour in my eyelid and I use it every day, but a bottle of this lasts me a good few months. The high pigmentation means that you don't have to add two coats so there's plenty in there to last ages. Less" - boots.com user

Highliner Glam Glitter Gel Eye Crayon by Marc Jacobs Beauty

"Since receiving these two eyeliners a few months ago, I have literally not worn any other liners...they are that good. I am not particularly adventurous with eyeliner shades, so I stayed in my comfort zone and ordered (Stone)Fox, which is a charcoal grey with gorgeous silver shimmer, and Brown(out), which is a deep, bronze-y brown with gold shimmer. I'd say they are basics, but there is really nothing basic about them. With almost effortless ease, these both glide across the lid like silk and leave behind a surprisingly complex line of shimmering color. The shimmer is just perfect - not too glittery or over-the-top, so it's a great option for both day and evening..You have a little bit of time to smudge the line out, if you so desire, but both of these set quickly and stay put. Though both shades work beautifully with eyeshadows, I most often wear them alone as they are so pretty that I hate to cover them up in any way. If you want a super-thin, precise line, be sure to use the included sharpener as the liner is very soft and does tend to create a thicker line after a few uses. I personally like a little thicker line, especially on my upper lid, as I want to show off these gorgeous shades and shimmer. Now that I've tried and fallen head over heels with these, I'm putting (Luna)tic at the top of my wishlist. I've heard a rumor that there is going to be a Holiday 2014 set of these highliners. If so, I know what Santa is going to be bringing me this year :) « less" - Sephora user

Aqua Resist Color Pencil Eyeliner by Make Up For Ever

"This product is one of the best waterproof/ smudge proof eyeliners I have ever used. I wore this in my waterline and it lasted all day! Typically eyeliners never stay in my waterline and ALWAYS bleed down to my bottom lashes...or worse, bleed onto my contact lens! Not only did this stay in my waterline all day, but it stayed put during a sweaty, cardio filled workout! Applying the eyeliner is extremely easy and requires zero pressure to get a very pigmented look. The shade I received (6 - Forest) is a gorgeous forest green color which beautifully compliments brown eyes. The color is not 100% matte. It has a slight shimmer to it but does not contain glitter particles like the Marc Jacobs Highliner 'shimmer finish' gel eyeliners. Overall I loved this eyeliner and appreciate that it lives up its water-proof/ smudge-proof claims! *Disclaimer: I received this through Influencer for product testing.* Less" - Sephora user

Sport Waterproof Eyeliner by Eyeko

"I have bad allergies and with that comes watery eyes. I'm also in my 50's so love helping out my top lashes by using black eyeliner on my top waterline. I've tried just about every black waterproof eyeliner on the market, and this is one of the best with its holding power. When I remove my makeup at night, it's still as dark as when I put it on! Love the staying power for my top waterline AND love that it does not mark on my bottom waterline since I like to put other colors on the bottom. I would definitely buy again!" - ulta user

Double Wear Infinite Waterproof Eyeliner by Estée Lauder

"I use Kohl Noir which is a true matte black colour. It is long lasting on both the eye lid and water line, however, as with any application on the water line, it does fade a little on the edges so you may need to reapply, although I never bother as it still looks fine. Once dry, it doesn’t smudge or transfer which is great and it also lasts through hot humid weather. As far as waterproof goes, I would say it is but I'm not sure how it fairs if you intend on wearing in a swimming pool but definitely great in humidity. I bought my second kohl noir thinking I had run out but turns out it hadn’t! I don’t wear makeup everyday but I’ve had my eyeliner for almost 2 years and it’s still going! I only ever apply a thin line on my eye lid if I am using false lashes but otherwise I would choose a gel or eye shadow creme for the lid. I don’t use the rubber smudger as I find it drags a bit. I like the fact that it’s retractable so there really isn’t the need to sharpen- it does come with a sharpener which I don’t use but could be useful if you like a sharper point for more precise application.I recently purchased the deep plum shade- I would say it’s more of a deep purple aubergine colour. It also has a slight pearly shimmer to it which is ok but I would much prefer if it were completely matte. « less" - Estée Lauder user

ColorStay 2-In-1 Angled Kajal Eyeliner by Revlon

"I received this Colorstay Revlon 2 in 1 angled kajal eyeliner in the Onyx color from Revlon and Crowdtap for free for my honest opinion, i am pretty impressed with it,the angle of the pencil allows me to get a clean precise line every time and the angled brush at other end allows you to pull the tip of liner out for winged look,it is really a nice eyeliner and the style is impeccable,It is a nice creamy look on the eyes and does not smear or smudge like some others i have tried and is long wearing,it is also opthalmologist tested for use on the warterline and that is awesome too. I highly recommend this for anyone looking for a nice eyeliner pencil with angled tip and brush.It is long wear too, for me it lasted all day and evening and i did not have to reappply it at anytime through the day or night. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]" - walgreens user

Waterproof Eyeliner by daniel sandler

"I have dark brown eyes and like to line them with black eyeliner without it looking too heavy. I've tried so many different eyeliner formulations and have found that they either drag on application or are too slick and smudgy, often causing me to have to wipe around my eyes throughout the day to get rid of smudginess. This eyeliner glides on smoothly and stays put once there. It's saved me so much time in doing my eyes. To have it as a free gift is just so amazing, I have now tried 3 items from the Daniel Sandler range and every single one of them has knocked my other brands out of my cosmetics purse. This is my go to brand from now on, thank you so much for making such high quality yet affordable items! " - danielsandler.com user

Bulletproof Liner by Too Faced

"My eyes water like crazy because of allergies anyway and add being on a chemo right now that has the side effect of watery eyes and my eyes are like faucets. Other waterproof eyeliners weren't cutting it so in a last ditch effort I tried this. Was a Godsend. I bought the matte black to use mainly as an eyeliner to smudge. It took a little working with but I figured out how to make it work for me. I like a thicker line on my lid anyway so the tip becoming wider doesn't really bother me. It truly doesn't budge until I decide to take it off after wearing all day and with my eyes watering. There is no fallout from it at all either. I even decided to buy the white one to line the inside of my lower lid to brighten my eyes and it stays put as well." - Sephora user

Eyeliner Waterproof Pencil by Dior

"I am so highly impressed at this waterproof liner that I had to post about it.I lost my son in April and well, I cry a lot. I haven't been out much lately when when I do go out I use this liner since it is truly indelible like ink! I remove it with an oil based remover for bet removal. I get complements [I'm older too]. The Intense Brown and Captivating Blue is quite beautiful on eyes even over the black or brown..unlike all my others these just work and look best. I have a purple/plum shade not shown here plus more not seen on here but in teh stores are gorgeous on. There is a short smudge time after lining but it's so worth it. I own maybe 50 liners lol mid to high end and this one just stays on bar none.. Make sure to apply close to top edge of lashes to fill in the gap between lashes and skin esp. if older this happens. My tip for applying any liner is using a lash curler first, mascara, then apply liner so you have something that liner can lean on (hard to explain) but it looks like tight lining.sample if in store ...worth it even if it's a bit more money I would rather these then all my others I ignore now. Less" - Sephora user

Tarteist Double Take Eyeliner by Tarte

"This is my favorite black eyeliner. I have Asian eyes and I am always on the lookout for jet black eyeliners. I have tried so many brands from Mac to Clinique, Stila, Lancôme and what not but this is by the the best and the darkest black eyeliner that’s smooth to apply and stays on for hours without smudging. I discovered this eyeliner when I was shopping at Macy’s and the sales person showed me this pencil. I was thrilled to see the precision and the depth of the color. I picked up three pencils ( 2 sex kitten and 1 Tartiest ). And since then I am hooked to these pencils and pens. It’s been over a year I am using them. I have tried other eyeliners in between for the sake of experimentation but none is even close to what Tarte eyeliner are, I LOVE ?? these eyeliner and request you please don’t change the formula ever and never ever take this product away from the market. Please share some special deals on these pencils and I will buy them in bulk. Less" - tartecosmetics.com user

Dessin Du Regard Waterproof Eyeliner  by YSL Beauty

"So I finally bit the bullet... now I undersrand why this is such a staple and favorite.I wasn't going to purchase it initially not only because of the price, but moreso because there's no waterproof version and I cannot wear regular formulas as I wear glasses and I have to super curl my lashes. I prefer the look regardless since mine are pretty straight and regular mascaras never hold up my curl.If its not wp, it will NOT work. That's just how it is with me.However, I have been trying and testing waterproof topcoats, specifically the one by Bareminerals. It has worked ok with other regular mascaras but at the end of the day the curl still falls, lashes flake, smudge, and clump.This one however, this. is. BOMB.So I curl my lashes really well, apply the topcoat FIRST, and before its completely dry, I apply the mascara. Holy cow....SO beautiful!!!Its really volumizing but not clumpy, doesn't lengthen too much but thats not its claim and its a feature I dont care about as it messes with my glasses once again. Perfect volume, separation, yummy consistency and superb color deposit.I have this in the burgundy, something cheaper/more affordable mascaras either dont offer or dont execute well. This one is SUCH a subtle stunner. There's something about it that's not as harsh as a black and makes my brown eyes pop. I've worn it natural for a tint or layered for a more intense punch. Regardless, it's always elegant, edgy, flirty and just, interesting...I hadnt gotten as many compliments about my eyes/lashes until this one. A handfulthought I had falsies on. Nope. Just a truly remarkable product at doing it's job and delivering its promises.It is a bummer though that there's no waterproof formula; much less in the colored ones but, you cant always get everything you wish for. lol However, I dont even care about the extra step with the topcoat or in this case "primer". It's THAT gorgeous. And I will repurchase. Forever. « less" - Sephora user

Glimmersticks Waterproof Eyeliner by avon

"Env: developmentFor several years I sold Avon and their *Glimmersticks Eye Liner *was one of my best selling products. Women love Glimmersticks pencil eye liners because they are affordable, they don't smudge, and they never need sharpening. Best yet, they are available in all your favorite colors! This review is based on my experience as an Avon customer - not as an Avon representative.*Avon Glimmersticks Eye Liner *sell for roughly $ 6.00 a piece, which in itself is a good deal. But....Avon is always running really good deals that lowers the price even more. Frequently they offer buy one get one free, or buy one get on 1/2 off deals that make *Glimmersticks Eye Liner *even more affordable. And if you order your eye liner from your Avon representative, you don't have to pay shipping charges!*Avon Glimmersticks Eye Liners *are available in the following colors:- Blackest Black- Cosmic Brown- Emerald- Saturn Grey- Starry Blue NightBut you are NOT limited to these colors! In the summer, Avon offers unique summer colors that are waterproof too! They also offer specialty colors during other times of the year too so always check to see what's available.The absolute best thing about *Glimmersticks *is that they are self sharpening. You'll never have to fumble around looking for an eye pencil sharpener. When the product becomes low, simply turn and more eyeliner is right there waiting for you! The eye liner wears very well and doesn't smudge or dull as you wear it. I can literally apply the eye liner in the morning and it will still be looking good at the end of the day. It smooths right across the eyelid without pulling or tugging too!**Bottom Line **- I highly recommend *Glimmersticks* to women (and girls) of all ages. They never go out of style, they are available at a great price, and there's a color for everyone. They work on upper and bottom lids and one eye liner will last for several months.Env: development Less" - viewpoints.com user

Lasting Drama Light Eyeliner Pencil by Maybelline

"I love everything about this eyeliner, minus the fact that I can't sharpen it. I do prefer my liquid liners to create that sharp cat eye, but in times when I'm in a rush, I will gravitate to this liner. It's super long lasting and pigmented. I left a line on my hand and after washing with soap, it stayed on without smudging. I used primer on my eye so it doesn't get oily and it stayed on the entire day as well. Another thing I loved about this liner is the packaging. It's super thin and sleek. It's twistable so I never have to worry about sharpening it so that was great. It doesn't take up much space in my makeup bag, which I appreciate since I'm always trying to keep it light. Overall, LOVE and probably would purchase again when I run out of all my pencil liners.

I will certainly continue to buy it, as long as it remains available. But like all good eyeliners which I have liked in the past, it will probably eventually be discontinued. The shades I use most are taken off the market and they keep the very dark shades which are not flattering someone elderly or for use during sunny days! " - ebay.com user

Quickliner For Eyes by Clinique

"I have already raved about Intense Ivy, which remains one of my very favorite liners, but I recently purchased three of the newly-released colors.Intense Clove - this is a gorgeous color that is somewhat difficult to describe. It's in between a dark brown and black. It is not a reddish, warm brown, but rather a cool, chestnut brown. It goes with literally everything and makes my blue eyes pop. This has a slight metallic finish, but it's very subtle.and sophisticated. This is a "can't go wrong" shade that would compliment most anyone. Neutral, but far from boring. I thought this would perhaps be easy to dupe, but I can't find anything close to this in my collection.Intense Peridot - what a fun color! True to its name, a golden hue with green leanings. But, the green is very wearable and again reads more neutral. This has a more pronounced metallic finish, but that's part of the beauty. It's not over-the-top edgy, so don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone to try this. I've worn this alone as a liner and also smudged it out as a cream shadow and topped it with a black liner. I love this! I have blue eyes and it makes them appear a little more gray, which is cool. But, if you happen to have brown eyes with flecks of green or gold, this will be a show-stopper.Intense Truffle - this is a mid-tone taupe. It just dark enough to show up well as a liner on my fair skin. It's subtle, but very pretty with a soft, metallic finish that captures light beautifully. Again, this is one you can easily smudge out and use as a shadow with another liner. It's also lovely alone, but more subdued.I am so impressed with all three of these shades. There are nuances in the colors and finishes that make them unique and fresh, yet totally wearable and chic.A word about the formula - it glides on like a gel and is easy to work with once you get the hang of it. But, you need to smudge and even out the line quickly as it sets in a hurry. And, once it's set, it's not going to budge. Though the sponge tool on the end of the liner works well, I find that using an eyeliner brush gives me the best and most precise results. The other challenge is to get a thin, precise line (especially on the bottom lid) as the liner is quite soft and cannot be sharpened. I found a fix for this by lightly running my eyeliner brush across the product and applying directly from the brush. Much like you'd use a gel liner in a pot. It's an extra step, but it works. I most often use this technique when working with the darker colors on my lower lash line. You can also build color for more intensity, though the colors are highly pigmented and offer impressive color with just one pass. It's best to let the liner set in between each pass, if you choose to build the color. Speaking of set, once set, this liner stays put until you take it off. With the lighter colors, soap and water works fine, but you will probably need an eye make-up remover to completely remove the darker shades.Try some of these lovelies...I think you'll be very pleased. And, final added bonus, the price point is excellent. Less" - Sephora user

Phyto-Eye Twist All in One Eyeshadow, Pencil & Eyeliner by Sisley

"Have never tried eyeliner/eye shadow in this form, but am now a true, lifetime fan! This draws on fine or thick for use as an eyeliner or eye shadow and can be "smudged" to your desire for the first few seconds, before it "sets". Once it sets, it really is waterproof! What I like especially about this product is, whichever color depth you choose to apply, soft or deep, the product itself is LIGHTWEIGHT, therefore getting color without the heavy look of powder, making for a younger, brighter eye!

Waterproof Eyeliner by prestige

"My only problem with these pencils? They've been hard to get, so I'm delighted to find them here! There's a lot of personal preference in an eyeliner but for me this is the Perfect Pencil. This is a wonderful tool; The creamy formula goes on easily with no skips or tugging. I can get a very even line that can be gorgeously smudged with a cotton bud or- partly removed with same if the line's too thick or I want less color. Or otherwise adjusted. The put on, then remove some technique is a nice trick. It does set in about a minute and a half or so though, if you want to play with it have that cotton bud out first. Once the pencils been on for 90 - 120 seconds it isn't budging. This pencil will go blunt pretty quickly; keep the sharpener handy. I find this to be extremely waterproof, this pencil is on for a long day that can include the gym. No raccoon eyes here. I do usually have shadow primer on that may be helping the longevity but hey, it works great for me! A couple of blues and a violet color would be nice. The black to browns range is really well done but sometimes... you need purple eyeliner. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="7333057243139143955-full" data-show="7333057243139143955-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>" - ulta.com user

Pro Longwear Eye Liner by MAC

"I researched what brushes people had good experience using with this gel liner and found many suggesting using a bent liner which definitely makes it easier.I have to admit, I even tried a non- MAC brush and have to say I was definitely disappointed and thank goodness I had also purchased a couple MAC brushes that would work with the gel liner.The one I love using with this is the 209 Eye Liner Brush which is thick enough to hold shape but not too thick. I could easily pick up the gel liner with this brush and draw the line as thin and as thick as I want.I also tried the 210 Precise Eye Liner Brush but found it to be too thin for me and I couldn't get it to draw the line. It is probably more suited for liquid.I have always used pencils and powder before using gel but hated having the smudge look after a few hours and look tired at the end of the day.This gel liner is amazing because it goes on easy and looks sharp as if it was just put on without the smudge. Less" - M·A·C user

"Love this eye liner! It's very easy to use and applies on smooth. Lasts all day and doesn't smudge. I love the touch of sparkle it has, makes it fun. This is my new favorite liner. I tried out the grey color and its beautiful, will be buying the other colors. " - Nordstrom user

Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner by NARS

"I have tried Urban Decay's and BE's long wearing eyeliners. BE was too soft and only had okay staying power. I do like Urban Decay but Nars stays on my eyelid and on my upper and lower waterline better. It is soft but not smooshy (unlike BE eyeliner), which lets me apply the right amount without needing to dig into my eyelid to get the color. I also like that it doesn't set instantly, which gives me time to smudge. I love love love that it is retractable (so already a fine point) but also has a built in sharpener to make the point even finer. I personally disdain needing to break out my pencil sharpener every time I want to use my eyeliner to get the fine point that I need. That is messy and waists a lot of product.The only aspect of the liner I do not like is the glitter. I mistakenly purchased 47th Street (black with silver shimmer) instead of Via Veneto (black). It's not enough of dislike to bother with returning it, but I will not purchase the shimmery liner(s ) again. I also can't rate as to whether it is truly waterproof.I will likely purchase more eyeliners from Nars but will give MUFE a go also. « less" - Sephora user

No-Tug Waterproof Anti-Aging Gel Eyeliner by IT Cosmetics

"This is literally the best eyeliner I've EVER used! I've tried everything, including the other popular brands here at QVC, and this is definitely the very best. From the instant I started to apply it for the first time, I thought...wow, this goes on so easily. But, the greatest thing is that it actually stays on ALL DAY without smudging or traveling in places you didn't put it. Also,it really is waterproof ( I live in FL, so that's important to me). I've even showered and everything without it coming off. At the end of the work day, I usually look at my makeup and think...oh my goodness, why didnt someone tell me it was this bad. lol Now, at the end of the day, I look and think, wow, it looks just like it did when I applied it this morning! I didn't think that was possible. Thanks sooo much, Jamie. Oh, BTW, I would love it if the Taupe liner came with out the highlighter. I like the highlighter, but don't need it as often as the other liner colors. Less" - QVC user

Smoulder Kohl Waterproof Eyeliner by Soap & Glory

"I normally use Benefit BadGal waterproof eyeliner but when I borrowed my friends S&G eyeliner last week I was completely converted. I went to buy it that day and am so glad that I did!This eyeliner really has staying power as unlike my previous eyeliner it lasts all day without smudging, which means no more lunchtime retouches! Its easy to apply and can give a really precise line when sharp and a cool grungy effect when less sharp. Its such a versatile product and is perfect for day and night, also the handy built in sharpener saves rooms in your make-up bag.Its is also a lot longer that most eyeliners I have used meaning although it doesn't appear as cheap as competitors such as Rimmel it is actually better value for money.Its really easy to apply and glides onto your lids with ease saving those precious minutes in the morning! Oh and last night I really put this product to the test, I went swimming with it on and, wow, my eyes looked exactly the same before and after while most of my friends had eyeliner all over their faces... THANKS S&G! Less" - boots.com user

Darkside Waterproof Gel Liner by Anastasia Beverly Hills

"I cannot believe how black and waterproof this pencil is. I swatched it on my hand before purchasing and it wouldn't come off my hand. Even after scrubbing with a wipe and oil. I'm sure this liner could take you swimming or last through a good cry or a rainstorm. Love it." - sephora user

Perfect Eyes Eyeliner by Too Faced

"Too Faced's Perfect Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner is much better than the company claims. How often does that happen? Too Faced claims it lasts for eight hours. While I know we should never sleep with eye makeup, I was testing something else (a 24 hour mascara), so slept with my new Perfect Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner, too. I figured that since the mascara (black) and the liner (Perfect Brown) are different shades, it would be easy to tell which smeared, if there were any smudge marks on the pillow.First of all, the eyeliner is wonderful. It applied easily. While it could be smudged if desired, before it sets, all I wanted to do was use it to define. I wanted to use the brown because it's a softer look than black, and it makes my black lashes stand out to their best advantage instead of using black against black, where everything blends together. It just about glides on. The point gave me a fine line, but with more pressure could be a wider one. The liner stayed. And stayed. And stayed. In fact, it stayed for 26 hours with a smudge, smear, or budge, before I removed it in the shower. I slept in it, and there wasn't a mark on my face or pillow from either the liner or the mascara I was testing.Since this stayed on more than 3 times longer than the company claims, and since it's applies easily, looks great, and is gentle, I'd have to say it's one of the best liners out there. In my opinion, it performs much better than the 24/7's from another company, although Too Faced doesn't have the extensive shades available yet. I hope to get another one soon. I'm totally impressed by this eyeliner. Less" - Sephora user

Limitless Eye Liner by Smashbox

"I am a makeup hoarder and my favorite thing to hog up is eye make up! LOL I have always been on the hunt for great eye make up: mascaras, primers, eye shadows and most desperately I’ve been searching for an eye pencil that can smudge up, stay where I put it and not crawl down my face when my eyes get watery. I think I have finally found all of this and more in my **Smashbox Limitless Waterproof Eye Liner. ** However, you know I’ll still be hunting because there’s always room for improvement. Although I don’t really believe that this** Smashbox Limitless Eye Liner** is waterproof, it is the first liner that can stand up to my oily lids and leaky eyes. I have purchased this pencil in several colors because once I find something this fantastic I want to buy out the store and stock my ‘treasure box’. I have found that every shade I purchased of these **Smashbox Liners **are pretty muted, they are definitely not bold, but they are buildable and are perfect for both a day and evening look. My favorite color is the black onyx - it’s not jet black but it’s a pretty smoky black that really gives your eyes a pop of color. I have pretty sensitive eyes, but **Smashbox Limitless Liners **have not irritated my eyes and when I have gotten "morning leaky eye syndrome" these pencils have really been put to the test - I’m impressed with the outcome. The formula is wonderful, it’s nice and creamy and doesn’t pull at your eyelids, draws a nice sleek or thick line - not to mention the handy little sharpener it comes with. The only think I wish that these **Smashbox Pencils **had was a smudger, because these babies smudge up great but I have to use the smudger from a different liner pencil - but that’s okay these liners are worth the extra effort. So although I love** Smashbox’s Limitless Pencils **you know that I’ll still be out there sampling! LOL It must be an addiction - a makeup addiction!!! Or it's just the hunt that intrigues me. Either way, if you try these** Smashbox Limitless Eye Liner Pencils**, be sure to write me back and let me know what you thought about them! Thanks for reading...HUGS!!!
