  12. Shontay

    Do I wear colored eyeliner: No
    Fave type: Liquid (love Mac penultimate)
    Is it vital: absolutely not. If you have great lashes and an awesome mascara, you don’t need liner. Sometimes, I find it gets in the way of a bright gorgeous look

  13. Jadelyn

    Do you wear colored eyeliner?: Yes; mostly MAC Eye Kohl in Teddy (a bronzy dark brown) but I have a few cheapo drugstore colored liners too.
    Favorite type of eyeliner (gel, liquid, pencil)?: Pencil all the way, except I’ve found I really like MAC Penultimate Liner which is a liquid.
    Is eyeliner vital?: Hell yes. At least a bit of Eye Kohl in the waterline.

  14. Do you wear colored eyeliner?: DEFINETLY
    Favorite type of eyeliner (gel, liquid, pencil)?: do i really have to choose just one? gel and pencil…gel when i have time, pencil when i have no time

    Is eyeliner vital?: yess! i wear it almost everyday. even if it’s just a little bit smudged on my upper lash line.

  16. Annigje

    Do you wear colored eyeliner?: Yes ;)
    Favorite type of eyeliner (gel, liquid, pencil)?: All of them
    Is eyeliner vital?: deifnately a big yes, it gives the eye just that extra oomph :)

  17. Do you wear colored eyeliner?: No but I will place colored eyeshadow underneath my eyes sometimes for an extra pop.
    Favorite type of eyeliner (gel, liquid, pencil)?: MAC Penultimate liner… so smudgeproof!
    Is eyeliner vital?: YES, I feel naked without it.

  18. Pilar

    Do you wear colored eyeliner?: [sometimes]
    Favorite type of eyeliner (gel, liquid, pencil)?: [Fluidline on top, pencil on waterline]
    Is eyeliner vital?: [Yes]

  19. Faheema

    Do you wear colored eyeliner?: I have always been amazed by the 24/7 UB pencils but I have yet to buy one ;)
    Favorite type of eyeliner (gel, liquid, pencil)?: liquid because it just looks so smart especially when its done so neatly. I also like pencil because I can actually put it on! I have yet to master gel eyeliner!
    Is eyeliner vital?: Yes if ur going for like a basic look. But tbh I never wear it; only if im going out with friends!

  20. Nadine

    Do you wear colored eyeliner?: I would if I owned some. I use Lise Watier’s Metamorphosis with coloured eyeshadow for a coloured eyeliner.
    Favorite type of eyeliner (gel, liquid, pencil)?: I like pencil for its ease.
    Is eyeliner vital?: Nah. I think it really emphasizes eyes for a night look, but during the day its not vital.

  21. Macaddict

    1) Yes. I have tons of colors (I also like black)
    2) Gel and pencil. But, also, as of a few weeks ago, powder kohl (Guerlain): My new HG eye product!!! I LOVE it! It’s easy to apply on the water line, stays on for ever and gives a POP to the eye like no other product I’ve used before! My fave color is blue (#02) ( a dark blue-green). Before this one, I was using eye shadow in my waterline on top of pencil but it didn’t last that long at all.
    3) It is because it defines the eye shape and color. It’s like contouring. Even if I do a minimalist look, I find it adds to it.

  22. Do you wear colored eyeliner?: yes, sometimes
    Favorite type of eyeliner (gel, liquid, pencil)?: kohl pencil
    Is eyeliner vital?: something on the waterline is necessary to complete a look – even if it’s a really light color (i love to wear MAC’s Powersurge there with neutral sculpted eyes). When I wear liner on the top, I really only put it on the outer portion and taper it in. Otherwise, it closes my eyes too much.

  23. Stephanie

    Do you wear colored eyeliner?: no, but i do want to give it a try sometime
    Favorite type of eyeliner (gel, liquid, pencil)?: liquid, i don’t like pencils cause I don’t like tugging on my eyelids(paranoid of wrinkles)
    Is eyeliner vital?: yes, my look doesn’t look finished without it

  24. Jamie

    Do you wear colored eyeliner?: only for the bottom lashline for that pop of color. i usually wear light, sparkly colors so that my eyes appear bigger and glossier.
    Favorite type of eyeliner (gel, liquid, pencil)?: gel
    Is eyeliner vital?: eyeliner is the icing on the cake, for me. (:

  25. hi

    Do you wear colored eyeliner? Yes! I find that true brught shades are a bit much for me, so I use deep versions of colors like forest green, royal blue and violet. I wore 80′s discoish Navy Stain powerpoint liner today, with Carbon over it. Gorg!
    Favorite type of eyeliner (gel, liquid, pencil)?: My favorite for precision is liquid or gel – when I need staying power I’ll opt for a gel liner like Fluidline – but when I want something sultry and smokey (which is more often than not), I’ll opt for a deep black kohl.
    Is eyeliner vital? YES! Absolutely. I feel naked without some, and it always must be on both my lashlines, thickened at the outer corners and only 3/4 of my eye, and smudged. Smudgy black kohl is a 5-minute smokey eye!

  26. Do you wear colored eyeliner?: Yes! I love colored liner and little to no eyeshadow. It really adds a pop to the eye and I always get so many compliments when I wear teal or green liners.

    Favorite type of eyeliner (gel, liquid, pencil)?: I prefer pencil because it is easy, but gel when I wear black and am going somewhere nice.

    Is eyeliner vital?: No, as much as I love it, I sometimes like the look of nothing but mascara on my eyes.

  27. tremorviolet

    Do you wear colored eyeliner?: yes, mostly Rich Ground f/l which matches my hair and looks most natural, occasionally a purple or green (or even hot pink glitter for fun).
    Favorite type of eyeliner (gel, liquid, pencil)?: gel, then pencil for casual days, liquid for clubbing
    Is eyeliner vital?: for me it is, I have small eyes and blond eye lashes. I feel invisible without it.

  28. Do you wear colored eyeliner?: YES! Usually to match my shadow. I don’t wear eyeliner on my top lid though, since my lid folds are really uneven, so I usually just use a complementary color eyeliner to tightline the outer 1/3-1/2 of my bottom lash line. My favorites are grey, navy and green.
    Favorite type of eyeliner (gel, liquid, pencil)?: Pencil. Easiest to control and I don’t have to worry about contamination.
    Is eyeliner vital?: Totally! It really helps make my eyes look bigger/rounder.

  29. Marta

    Do you wear colored eyeliner?: yes
    Favorite type of eyeliner : fluidline
    Is eyeliner vital?:not really

  30. Sara Li

    Do you wear colored eyeliner?: Only black and brown
    Favorite type of eyeliner (gel, liquid, pencil)?: I love them all, so I can’t choose just one. Somedays I’m in the mood for gel liners other days call for liquid or pencil.
    Is eyeliner vital?: Yes, it really makes my eyes pop and it defines them more. I only wish I had discovered it 10 years ago.

  31. Charlestongirl

    Do you wear colored eyeliner?: No, but I love it.
    Favorite type of eyeliner (gel, liquid, pencil)?: Creamy pencil
    Is eyeliner vital?: Not for those with nice full and long eyelashes, but for those whose eyelashes are sparse, yes.

  32. Nic15

    Do you wear colored eyeliner?: Yes, mostly UD’s 24/7 liners

    Favorite type of liner?: Pencil cause its the easiest for me to apply with no mistakes.

    Is eyeliner vital?: For me, yes. My eyes don’t look right without it!

  33. Heather

    Do you wear colored eyeliner?: Yes I love it!!
    Favorite type of eyeliner (gel, liquid, pencil)?: gel
    Is eyeliner vital?: yes when I’m using eyeshadow but if I’m just using mascara I skip all eyeliner all together

  34. Do you wear colored eyeliner?: yep– love it!
    Favorite type of eyeliner (gel, liquid, pencil)?: i’m loving the pen liner right now from the chill collection- so easy and looks good every time.
    Is eyeliner vital?: no, i guess not. but i usually don’t go without it unless i’m just skipping makeup all together. it makes a big difference.

  35. Meagan Elizabeth

    Do you wear colored eyeliner?: Yes! Usually in the warmer seasons I’ll go with a nude/very neutral eye with a pop of colored eyeliner!

    Favorite type of eyeliner (gel, liquid, pencil)?: They all have their strengths and weaknesses! I haven’t had the chance to use gel yet, but I just bought some.

    Is eyeliner vital?: Not at all. I think some looks are better without eyeliner. Also, my lashes are fairly thick and I always wear mascara so my eyes are already pretty defined. Sometimes I’ll just smudge some eyeshadow around my eyes instead of eyeliner :)

  36. Eleanor

    Do you wear colored eyeliner?: [YES]
    Favorite type of eyeliner (gel, liquid, pencil)?: [PENCIL]
    Is eyeliner vital?: [NO, I HAVE FOUND GOING WITHOUT LINER CAN ALSO ENHANCE A LOOK]

  37. Satine

    Do you wear colored eyeliner?: Rarely, and if I do in the water line.

    Favorite type of eyeliner (gel, liquid, pencil)?: Most certainly powder with an angled brush (on lid of course)

    Is eyeliner vital?: YES! But not for all eyes. For me its especially to give appearance of thickness to lashes.

  38. viv

    Do you wear colored eyeliner?: Sometimes, but I always go back to black ;)
    Favorite type of eyeliner (gel, liquid, pencil)?: hm… it’d be between gel and pencil. I like the texture of gel liners but pencils are still a lot easier and quicker to use.
    Is eyeliner vital?: Yes!! if i don’t enough time, eyeliner and mascara alone will make a great look :)

  39. Tee

    Do you wear colored eyeliner?: Yes!!

    Favorite type of eyeliner (gel, liquid, pencil)?: Probably pencil or gel.

    Is eyeliner vital?: For me it is! If darker eyeliner won’t look good I usually go for white though.

  40. Andrea

    Do you wear colored eyeliner?: I would love to try colors other than brown and black but I’m only 15 so need for crazy colors right now.
    Favorite type of eyeliner (gel, liquid, pencil)?: MAC Fluidline!
    Is eyeliner vital?: It is for me. It makes me eyes stand out.

  41. Erin H.

    Do you wear colored eyeliner? No, I’ve never used it before.
    Favorite type of eyeliner: liquid
    Is eyeliner vital? Yes. The look does not seem finished to me without it!!

  42. Dana

    Do you wear colored eyeliner?: Yes! I love to experiment, even with shades most people might not ordinarily like using like true red and lime green. I’ll try any color, from metallic golds to bright whites to sultry purples!

    Favorite type of eyeliner (gel, liquid, pencil)?: Pencil tends to work best for me. I’m visually challenged, and applying liquid e/l can be very messy, and if I’m not very precise with my gel e/l it can smudge and I won’t notice until it’s too late to fix. I’ve taught myself to be very precise with my pencils as a result.

    Is eyeliner vital?: Certainly not. I don’t wear eyeliner every day, and some looks actually benefit from a less-defined eye shape in my opinion. :)

  43. Kate

    Do you wear colored eyeliner? Yes, but mostly darker shades.
    Favorite type of eyeliner? Gel, but pencil if I’m pinched for time.
    Is eyeliner vital? Yes! I feel like my makeup is unfinished if I’m not wearing any.

  44. nancybridget

    Do you wear colored eyeliner?

    Sure do! I love colored liners.

    Favorite type of eyeliner (gel, liquid, pencil)?

    It depends on the brand. For MAC, I love Fluidline, Pearl Glide Pencils, the PowerPointe liner, and some of the Khols. I am not a fan of the liquids they have…I can’t even remember the name right now. For UD, I prefer the pencils. For BB, it’s all about the gels. MUFE – love, love and love their pencils. All pencils need a super sharp point, though, or it doesn’t work.

    Is eyeliner vital?

    Nah. I wear liner when I want a more dramatic look.

  45. brenda

  47. fks

    Do you wear colored eyeliner?: Yes, but only the darkest colours (dark blue, brown, deep plum, dark green etc.).

    Favorite type of eyeliner (gel, liquid, pencil)?: powder, put on with a brush
    dipped in a mixing medium (1 part glycerine to 3 parts of distilled water).

    Is eyeliner vital?: Yes, it clearly defines the lash line, and makes them look
    longer.

  48. Rita

    Do you wear colored eyeliner?: YES
    Favorite type of eyeliner (gel, liquid, pencil)?: Pencil at the moment
    Is eyeliner vital?: No, I don’t usually wear it, but that’s just because I don’t have time to put it on in the morning & I have only 2 pencils and one fluidline.

  49. ali

    Do you wear colored eyeliner?: yes, though usually on the lower lashline
    Favorite type of eyeliner (gel, liquid, pencil)?: liquid on top, pencil for bottom.

    Favorite type of eyeliner (gel, liquid, pencil)?: pencil
    Is eyeliner vital?: sometimes

  51. BINNIE

    Do you wear colored eyeliner?: [oh YES]I LOVE urban decay for coloured liner or NO7 from boots

    Favorite type of eyeliner (gel, liquid, pencil)?: [i love MAC blacktrack fluidline and apply it most morning if Im being lazy then revert to pencil-estee lauder/urban decay zero/ or barry m]
    Is eyeliner vital?: [yes defines the eyes for me :)]

  52. Sarah

    Do you wear colored eyeliner?:
    I own an array of beautiful shades but still end up opting for the safe– blacks and browns.

    Favorite type of eyeliner (gel, liquid, pencil)?:
    I’ve got every form of eyeliner imaginable. Although pencils are fuss free, I’m a huge fan of liquid liners in felt pen form i.e. YSL easy liners.

    Is eyeliner vital?:
    I don’t always wear it but still, I’d say yes it’s vital.

  53. Mikki

    Oops, I never use eyeliner! Is that a major shock? haha

  54. candoo38

    I wear colored eyeliner a lot more than I used to. I have branched out beyond the basics. Being a women of color, I never really thought they would look good on me. My favorites eyeliners are gel/gream based, but for smokey eye, I like using mineral or pencil. Eyeliner is an absolute must. It brings you eyes out.

  55. KrisBliss

    Do you wear colored eyeliner?: Yes, my favorites are Peacock and Fab Orchid.
    Favorite type of eyeliner (gel, liquid, pencil)?: I like the gel liners the best, liquid second and then pencil for my inner lash lines.
    Is eyeliner vital?: Absolutely! It finishes your eye to give it the polished pro look.

  56. rhian

    Do you wear colored eyeliner?: Yes! Several different colours, I love it and it livens up my brown eyes.
    Favorite type of eyeliner (gel, liquid, pencil)?: Hmm, pencil for underneath and gel for upper. Hate liquid – to harsh!
    Is eyeliner vital?: IMO yes, i only apply to outer half of my eyes and makes such a difference.

  57. Do you wear colored eyeliner?: Sometimes, it depends on the occasion. I usually use white eyeliner on th waterline to enhance the appereance of my eyes, besides that I like to wear blue liner on my top lashes.

    Favorite type of eyeliner (gel, liquid, pencil)?: I feel most comfortable w/ pencil so I guess that’s my favorite, but I also like using gel and liquid, it just takes awhile for me to apply it w/out messing up.

    Is eyeliner vital?: For me it’s vital, since I have small eyes compared to many, I wear eyeliner whenever I go out of the house. Eyeliner helps make my eyes more defined and a lil bigger in apperence than they actually are.

  58. kimberly v

    Do you wear colored eyeliner?: yes! a cobalt blue is my fave! it brings out my light brown eyes! makes them pop!
    Favorite type of eyeliner (gel, liquid, pencil)?: pencil only

    If I don’t do eyeshadow I do a colored cat eye. Aqualine is my fave for that look. Gets a lot of compliments. Usually line the waterline w/ white when I do that, too.
