only feline topped with shadow and a lil transparent powder. anything that says waterproof will either not go on my waterline at all, smudge, or make me tear a lot.

Urban decay Zero. If I run it along the waterline a few times and then wait a minute and do it again and then set it with shadow, it lasts all night long!

Almost none. I have contacts and haven’t used eyeliners on my waterline much. This was until I discovered Guerlain’s kohl powders, they last all day, and then some, and they don’t irritate my eyes or cloud my contacts, I absolutely love them:-)

No liner lasts by itself on my waterline, though setting it with MAC Carbon e/s generally makes it last longer. But still not all day.

Yves Saint Laurent Kajal Khol. It was a big short khol pencil the same size as Benefit’s BadGal (if I remember that Benefit name well). Unfortunately it was a Limited Summer Edition (2007, I think). Excellent power staying and an incredible density of blackness. I have a back up but it won’t be eternal. I know Givenchy makes one called “Magic Kajal” but I haven’t tested it yet. I eventually will!

Anyway, I’ve got a routine to make the waterline staying power longer: I also apply khol on the upper waterline. I put the khol on my waterline near my tearduct, close my eye on the khol and gently slide it to the external corner of my eyes (that way, it get applied on both waterline). That’s easier to do with a big sized khol. Sounds silly but it works. When I was simply using a khol on the lower waterline (I’ve done that during years!), I had to correct it several time a day. Now it stays at least 6 hours without fading. But it last less with an ordinary khol. Kajal works best!

revlon matte kohl eyeliner. i have mine in rich mink color which is good if you have naturally hazel/brown eyes. my eyes are naturally brown. it lasts all day long. hope this helps! =)

NONE ???? I really love how black mac’s smolder is ut its the worst one in staying on my waterline :/

i heared Stilla’s is good (even kim kardashian says she likes it) but its kinda expensive n i’m not even sure it would work


I’m using Gemey Maybelline Khôl non stop and I must say that as for now, it always worked on me
good thing cause it’s cheap
i’d rather keep my money for MAC e/s and l/s

Stila Smudge Pot and MAC Carbon shadow over top seems to stay the longest for me (when I do line my waterline, which isn’t often). Usually survives a 12+ hour day at work, minus some smudging in the corner

Sadly, I have yet to find one.

Curious, while looking at old posts…you said you applied Blacktrack on your waterline. How were you able to do that? 🙂 Does it last?

generally, MAC 231 is great for applying wet stuff (gel, liquid) to your waterline. No gel has worked for me so far though.

UD 24/7 works decently well, but I found MUFE works best on my waterline. Annabelle in Canada has a similar liner that works decently when I’m on a budget.

I use the Prescriptives Jet eyeliner. It stays even after crying or sleeping. I’m so bummed that they are going out of business. I have started stocking up!

I haven’t tried too many liners on my water line, but of the ones I have tried, L’Oreal Hip gel eyeliner works well. It lasts for at least several hours (the longest I’ve done so far). I love the look of a lined waterline, but I find it’s a bit too much for work.
