Just tried Makeup Forever’s Aqua Eyes on the recommendation of a girl at Sephora. When I told her that Tarte’s emphasEYES just runs, she suggested using Aqua Eyes based on the fact that it’s waterproof. Honestly, it lasted the same amount of time, 2-3 hours, before running right off of my waterline to my lower lid and the outside corners of my eyes, just like Tarte’s. I’ll try the eyeshadow/powder trick this afternoon and see if that lasts through a dinner and a movie date.

I don’t. Feline stays on me, for the most part, but when it goes, it just migrates into my lower lash line and stays there so it’s not so much of an issue.

I love how long kohl lasts; all day long without re-application =D

I used to wear kohl powder for my performances. It is a little difficult to apply the kohl powder, there is a ton of fall out, no mater how careful you are applying it.

If I use an eyecrayon I put some eyeshadow in the same color over it. It’s like with liquid foundation, you seal it with powder. It work great..

I dab Feline into my creamliner and apply it. This mixture stays on my waterline for several hours. (Yep, I got this from your tut, thanks for that! ;))

i usually use a pencil dipped in fluidline or loreal hip cream eyeliner, and it stays pretty well. i’ve been using the Styli Style Line and Seal 24 hour liners…they stick around pretty good! I want to try the black one on my waterline and see how she stays.

I’ve been using Sephora’s new Eyeliner Last. I line my waterline and put the liner last underneath the waterline (under my lower lashes). It has totally fixed the running eyeliner problem and makes my liner stay all day. I don’t think you can use it directly on the waterline, but lining below has totally worked for me!

My other new love – Urban Decay’s 24/7 eyeliner pencils. Amazing and don’t budge until I take off my makeup at night!

I wipe it dry (softly, of course, i don’t want to scratch at it!!!) with a soft tissue. Then i smudge the tip of my waterproof eye pencil ( Mostly i use MUFE’s aqua eyes) and glide it across. This way the pencil has a dry surface to adhere to, versus a slicky wet messy waterline that usually makes you need a couple of passes of the pencil, in turn irritating the eye area. . .

i use the blacktrack fluidline by mac then i use graphblack technakohl liner over it. it stays on me for hours.
using the fluidline isn’t safe for the waterline because there’s alcohol in it but i love using it there, it makes my eye color pop. =)

I use fluidline and then usually intensify it with a pencil liner. Works well and is the only thing that doesn’t budge on me! Even the UD 24/7 wear off, not as much as MAC liners but Fluidline is the only thing I’ve found that doesn’t move at all!

HIP CREAM LINER. i swear it stays on the waterline like cement. people seriously need to try this, it’s ridiculous how well it works. its 10x better than blacktrack or any pencil ive tried

Urban Decay 24/7 normally last up to 4 hours for me & I don’t mind reapplying it. If I set it with shadow my eyes water like crazy!

Bobbi Brown gel liner, usually, or Feline Kohl Power pencil. I use other colors and formulas on occasion, but I get the best results from those two. For times when I really need my liner to stick like glue (dance performances, mainly), I use Liquidlast liner, but it can be a bit problematic to apply and hard to get off so I don’t use it too often…
