Black eyeliner. Doesn’t matter what brand, kind, or how I want to wear it, I look like a gothic raccoon princess no matter what.

Try Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper (black). I had the same problem as you (tried UD, MUFE, all the drugstore brands, Stila) and this is the best.

Pricey liquid liner but stays through tears and sweats. It might fade but doesn’t give the tattoo look. I wore it over MUFE primer to get it to last longer without fading but I had to experiment with several kinds of primer first to figure it out. It fades rather than smudges all over so you won’t look like a raccoon princess.

I bought MAC Stereo Rose mineralize skinfinish because I absolutely love the color. Unfortunately I’m so cool-toned that it looks orange on me. Not coral. ORANGE.

I’m currently going back and forth about buying Benefit Rockateur because I’ve heard it compared to Stereo Rose and am afraid the same thing will happen.

I actually sold it a while ago after trying it 3-4 times and being dismayed at its continued safety-orange-ness on my face.

Still sad but at least I got my money back…

Have you ever tried Expensive Pink e/s? I am extremely warm-toned and it is straight up orange on me. I wonder if it shows up pink on cool tones…

I am super cool-toned as well, and Rockateur doesn’t pull orange on me at all. It’s a natural, understated flush for me. I’ve actually been wearing it non-stop since I got it a week ago, which is unusual for me! I’ve been a victim of coral pulling orange before, and I totally understand how sad it can be.

For me is Sushi kiss by Mac and watch me simmer I love the colors but they wash me out so bad!! I’m Hispanic with yellow undertones and I’ve try different method but nothing works!

MAC Mineralise Shadows of any kind. Even wet I can’t get them to stay put and blend effortlessly like they claim. On my hand it’s beautiful, on my lids, fall out and too much sparkle.

Illamasqua’s liquid metals. Look amazing swatched on hands, lips and in pan but crease so damn badly on eyes that they’re unwearable.

tom ford cobalt rush…still working out how a warmed tone girl (with asian eyelids!) could pull off such a bold and cold palette.

MAC lipstick in Innocence, Beware! Love that shade. LOVE IT. Perfect beige-y nude pink for me, particularly with a smokey eye. The problem? Dries me out like none other. Sinks into lip lines. Within an hour of me putting it on, it requires me to smooth it out with a finger to get rid of the lines. Every two hours, I have to reapply balm. I’ve heard Maybelline Nude Nuances is nearly a spot on dupe for it, so I’ll have to give it a look and see if it wears better on me.

Hourglass Immaculate Foundation, because I used to have very oily skin, but now it’s technically combo (which is great improvement but, when my skin gets oily it’s an oil spill….I love Hourglass products but this foundation would get dry and patchy on me even if there was oily sitting on top of my face.

I am so surprised by this answer! You’ve never given any indication that they’re crease monsters before! /sarcasm

Viva Glam Gaga II – the nude one. Gorgeous, but always looks weird on me. I use it to layer on lippies but I wish I could wear it alone.

MAC prep + prime loose powder, as well as Nars hd loose powder and Tarte smooth operator, all those powder leave a beautiful finish, but by the 3rd day, I’ve had broken out like crazy, and I am not acne prone. It must be an ingredient there that my skin just doesn’t like. I have try them, and is always the same thing over and over with those powder.

Benefits erase paste. Love the coverage, but the texture is to gloopy for me, it is difficult to blend out with a brush without leaving marks and if i use my finger It doesn’t look even on my undereyes., plus it creases horribly within an hour.

Sugarpill Chromalust loose eyeshadows. They crease on me like CRAZY, no matter what primer I use! Doesn’t stop me from using them, however. I don’t mind having to touch them up.

Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner pencils… With so many absolutely stunning shades, I’m always sooo tempted by the multi-pencil sets, but then I remember what happens… Somehow, my skin seems to simply absorb the product; no creasing, slipping, smudging, smearing, or fading-it just disappears completely in less than an hour, with no sign it was ever there in the first place.

What makes this even stranger, is no other liner does this. In fact, every pencil I’ve tried, regardless of pricepoint, wears like iron on me. I’ve actually fallen asleep with those infamous NARS pencils on my bare lids, not set with powder of any sort, and woke up with my eyes looking as fresh as they did when I first applied the product.
