Yes, eyeliner can be creative too!
Unlike eyeshadows or lipsticks, eyeliner seems to leave us less choices, and we tend to stick to a few brands. Previously, I would usually keep only one eyeliner at a time. But now I find out the creativity that eyeliners can create! Most of us will have one eyeliner that's black or brown. How many of you haven't tried colored eyeliner? Trust me. You will fall in love with them! For a very long time, I only use liquid eyeliner for the reason of clean and crisp line. However, then I found eye pencil is firm enough to create a definite line and soft enough to blend more naturally with glide (and not that easy to make a mistake). DIOR's Diorshow Pro liner in the shade Brow is my daily eyeliner. Besides, I have an eyeliner from SHU UEMURA in the shade Violet Brown to get some creative looks and for some special occasions. The Diorshow Pro liner in brown is suitable for all daily occasions from work to study, casual to formal. The pencil tip is in a beveled shape that uncommon to see, which looks like an eyebrow pencil. I can get an intense fine line by laying the pencil and use the sharp edge, and it requires no sharpening. The unique shape makes this pencil outstanding when I'm trying to get a thick line, just point the pen to the lash line perpendicularly and use the thick plane. In addition, as an oily skin I can say this is one of the most water-proof eyeliners I've ever used. Nevertheless, I don't recommend this for makeup beginners as it might be difficult to operate. The Violet Brown one is my favorite item for hanging-out. Perfect when I'm going to shopping or date with my besties. It's so cute and fairy when matches with pink and violet tone eye makeup. Sometimes you need a colored eyeliner to bring in some vitality! The body is very tiny to help draw a precise and sharp line. This eye pencil from SHU UEMURA has a soft gel texture, which makes it super silky and smooth to smudge, yet it also magically firm a film as soon as you draw it on, which makes it long-lasting and anti-smudging. It won't be smudged even I rub it with a finger. This is also tagged as water-proof, slightly inferior than DIOR's eyeliner, but still put up a good performance. DIOR - Diorshow Waterproof Pro Liner

I picked up this urbandecaycosmetics Hex Remedy 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencil kit at sephora a few weeks ago and have been so happy with it. It was $29 & I think the value ($80) is outstanding considering a full size 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencil is $21! They glide on so smooth and don't smudge. Shades included: ●Perversion (matte blackest black) ●Goddess (deep navy with tonal micro-shimmer) ●Voodoo (bright purple with pink micro-shimmer) ●Starfire (burnt orange metallic) ●Space Dust (warm platinum metallic)

This pen from Estee Lauder it’s a Eye liner, I really love this product it’s not that shape but it’s really good. I recommend this to anyone who finds difficult to do the Eye cat or anything similar because this really helps you. I bought these last summer and I don’t usually do you and Eye cat or something but when I do this really helps me

👁 Eyeliner Dupe! 👁
I've been using the#NARS - Monirque Kohliner Eyeliner[products]#[FourStars] for around a year already since I love the slim design and sturdy packaging. The eyeliner has a metal casing and a twist up and down mechanism that ensures the product to be protected and prevents it from breaking. The product formula is also pretty good. It glides onto my eyelids and waterline easily and is intensly pigmented😯. The one thing I don't like about this product though is that it smears after awhile. When I wear this eyeliner for more than 4 hours I notice that I have racoon eyes! 😱So I wanted to look for another eyeliner that is similar yet has a non-smudging formula (also cheaper). An eyeliner that has an extremly similar packaging and self-sharpening (twist) mechanism isCOVERGIRL - Ink It! Perfect Point Plus Eyeliner . I got it in brown though since I wanted another color since all my other eyeliners were black. This product is also slim and is pretty much the same size👍🏻. The formula is also super pigmented and glides easily. The one thing I did notice is that this product stays in place! After probably more than 12 hours, I still did not have racoon eyes. It didn't smudge onto my eye bags which is what I was looking for. The only thing I do not like about this product is that it is extremly hard to get off. I had to go through probably 1 makeup wipe and 6 q-tips in order to get rid of the eyeliner completely which is a lot more than the NARS one which probably only takes 1 make-up wipe and 2 q-tips😅 The price is also an important difference! The NARS eyeliner costs $22 while the CG one is only about $8. 🤯So I feel like the CG is enough for me. The NARS one is more sturdy and I like the high quality packaging more with the intensity adn easy glide on, but I prefer something that works and does not smudge at an affordable price.

Serious Staying Power!
The Too Faced Sketch Liner is one of my favorite pieces of packaging I’ve ever seen. The little heart on the pen style cap just kills me- it’s so cute. Like liner itself is really nice too! It’s really pigmented, dries in a satin finish, and has SERIOUS staying power. It doesn’t rub off that easily. It does dry rather fast so if you make a mistake you might not be able to rub it off in time. If you’re good a doing your liner (I’m not, lol) then this is the perfect liquid liner for you! $22 at Macy’s. Too Faced - Sketch Marker Liquid Art Eyeliner

Liquid or solid eyeliner 🧐
I would like to introduce two types of Eyeliner products, one is solid 24 / 7 Eyeliner of urban decay, and the other is liquid eyeliner of MAC. Let's first talk about UD. For reference, my eye skin is very oily, so I pay special attention to waterproof capacity. The product has proved that half a day is ok, but it's almost gone in the afternoon. As for color, the biggest advantage is that the color choice is more. It's definitely a good choice for girls who love collecting eyeliners. I am reviewing the purple one with shining. In fact, it doesn’t look very different from black.There is no problem in daily use. The biggest drawback of this kind of eyeliner is that it needs to buy a pencil sharpener separately. If you don't sharpen after one-time use, the eyeliner pencil will become flat and hard to apply. So every time I use an eyeliner, I need to sharpen my pencil once. URBAN DECAY - 24/7 Waterline Eye Pencil I have tried many eyeliners in the past. Like the above mentioned pencil. This MAC is unlike any of my usual eyeliner, the texture is liquid. The color is deep dark black, especially suitable for exaggerated dramatic makeup. It does not smudge or disappear and stays black all day. However, the liquid eyeliner is not friendly to the freshmen, because it has high-noticeable color. Even you apply to your eyes very gently, there will be very clear. You cannot make any mistakes and lightly hand shaking. MAC - MAC Liquid Eye Liner Overall，I don’t recommend UD 24/7, one reason is too frequently to use the pencil shaper. one is not friendly to the oily skin. And the refill is too soft. It is easy to break if you use a little more strength on the product.

One of the best eyeshadow primers!
Personally, I have really oily eyelids so finding a really good eyeshadow primer that prevents smudging is a must for me! A while back, I discovered the Nars smudge proof eyeshadow primer. I personally love Nars products so I decided to give this product a try. I’m so glad I did! 🤩 This primer comes out as an opaque white color, but once you blend it out on your eyelids it becomes clear. It does not make your eyelids feel sticky or tacky whatsoever, which is why I really like this primer. I’ve had 8+ hour days and my eyeshadows look amazing at the end of the night, this is how great this product is!! The packaging although is ok. It’s your typical doe-foot applicator, one downside to this applicator is that you will not be able to get all the products out. Hence, I think a squeeze tube would be a better packaging idea. Nonetheless, I have had nothing but positive outcomes with this product and I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a new eyeshadow primer! You will not be disappointed!!
