    Eyeliner purely because you can use cream eyeshadows as liners :).

  2. Definitely eyeliner as Briodmun said you can use shadow as liner … plus eyeshadow is just so much more fun!

    • lol, I guess this was an easier question than I thought, though I picked to keep eyeshadow for the same reasons – it doubles as a liner!

    Eyeliner, since I never use it anyway. If I line my eyes I do it with darker shadow.
    So no hard question for me here, for once ;)

  4. Eyeliner. It would be tough, but I would line my eyes w/ dark shadows.

    Hmm… same goes for the opposite way around, I especially use powerpoint pencils as shadows, and sometimes I even darken the corner with a shadow and smudge into it.

    by with a shadow I meant with a pencil.

    I’d give up eyeshadow because I just look dead without eyeliner!

    Definately giving up eyeliner first.It can be replace by eyeshadows colors easily.

    I think I’d give up eyeshadow, but only if the eyeliners were MAC. When I’m in a hurry, a lining of a powerpoint pencil and mascara is enough to look put together. Fluidlines can double as a lid colour if you’re so inclined.

    I would say….eyeliner. Simply because I didn’t start using eyeliner since last year. I used dark colored eyeshadow to “line” my eyes since the MA at Bobbi Brown showed me how to. So yeah. I could probably live without it.

    Eyeliner would go without hesitation. I use eyeshadow SO much more and it is a great deal more versatile.

    My roommate, though, would give up eyeshadow – but it really wouldn’t mean much as he doesn’t use it anyway. ;)

    well, i have incredibly hooded eyelids. so, even if i chose the eyeliner, you wouldn’t see it that well. shadow is a definite must for me! besides you can play with shadow, even change the shape of your eyes with shadow. LOVE it!

  13. I would give up shadow…. I love liner way too much!

  14. Lydia

    I think I would give up eyeliner first because you can use a dark shadow as an eyeliner

  15. George

    Eyeliner, for sure. I couldn’t live without my rainbow of colours.

  16. I rarely wear eyeliner anyways. I always use eyeshadow as liner.

  17. Rachel

    I would have to say eyeshadow. Only because I wear eyeliner every single day while eyeshadow goes on the days where I’m not too lazy. Also with Asian Eyes, I really do need the liner to make them bigger. But of course, I love both!

  18. Ping.

    definitely eyeshadow… haha can’t leave without eyeliner! but I have tame it down a little… heard its bad for wrinkle
