Taking advantage of the UD Ocho Loco deal which should be arriving soon, I hope the list will include some of them. I also have a few TT liners on order as well. Eyeliner is somewhat of a foreign product to me other than my two standard brown and black gel liners from MAC. I have issues with creamy liners travelling to parts where they shouldn’t with my hooded lids and overall,I guess, slick eye parts top and bottom! I would really like to learn to love and play with a much greater colour range and find products that are going to work and stay put on me without transfer. So, for now, I only have 2 liners on my list that I have used in the present and the past and they are MAC fluidline and MUFE Aqua eyes (not so fond of the waxiness and it’s a little rough during application). Any thoughts on the following fluidline colours: Macroviolet and Glitz and Blitz?? I am looking forward to the other comments on this topic.

I have similar issues, and Stila smudge sticks actually work remarkably well for me. They need to be allowed to set for a bit, but I have actually not had too much trouble with traveling after that. TT works pretty well for me, too.

That’s good to hear! I do have a Stila smudge stick in my arsenal, but it’s been sitting unused for so many years I’m afraid to use it. When I was riding competitively, I didn’t wear eyeliner at all unless I wanted raccoon eyes. I remember it did have excellent staying power. I will definitely check them out again. Thanks 🙂 for the feedback on TT as well. I bought a number of colours, but plan to use those on my lower lashline only and it’s not as frightfully greasy as my upper lid.

UD Junkie
Milani- Brown one
Loreal Hip Chrome whatever- purple one
Loreal Hip Chrome whatever- gold one, very similar to Honey
UD Honey.
I bought UD Honey because of Christine. I asked UD counter to sell me their demo since they no longer sell that color. Why do you like UD Honey, Christine?

Hmm, I don’t really have five favorite eyeliners!

I use black gel/liquid liner for my upper lash/waterline systematically, but brand doesn’t really matter too much there (I’ve tried the Maybelline and Bobbi Brown gel, and they both work fantastically for me).

When it comes to my lower lash line that’s when I get more creative. My absolute favorite is Urban Decay Stash. That seems to be one pencil liner that I can incorporate with a lot of the looks! I also adore UD Rockstar as well as more basic shades like Zero and Whiskey.

1) Bobbi Brown Gel liner – lasts long and is a very dark deep black.
2) Maybelline Drama Gel liner – amazing new find. Lasts all day, applies like a cream, highly-pigmented and beautifully black. My HG.
3) Giorgio Armani Smooth silk eye pencil
4) Zara Eye Kohl pencil (discontinued) – my HG that had to be replaced, the best pencils ive ever used. No smudging, lovely deep colour.
5) MAC Smoulder – last choice only because this smudges on my lids.

WORST – TOM Ford Gel liniers – they chip away even during application.

I’m afraid mine are going to be rather dull/repetitive color-wise, but here they are, in no particular order:

1. Sephora Flashy Eyeliner Waterproof in Ultra Brown
2. MAC Teddy
3. UD 24/7 in Rockstar
4. Givenchy Magic Kajal in black (1)- this was LE and it’s extremely smudgy so needs to be either set with powder or, well, smudged, but it’s the blackest, most pigmented pencil I’ve found to date. Pretty high maintenance though.
5. Essence Gel Eyeliner – brown (can’t recall the exact name, something to do with London, I think).

Stila – Stingray (for the waterline)
Estée Lauder – Coffee (waterline)
Lancôme – Café
Nars – Via Veneto
Urban Decay -Stray Dog (love the color)

… I don’t have a fifth. If I was choosing more than one colour from each type I’d probably say UD 24/7 in Covet, but I can’t think of another brand. Soap & Glory’s Supercat eyeliner is *nice* but it migrates and smudges on me. :/

I’m anxiously waiting for my Ocho Loco set to arrive….the more I want, the slower the mail… 🙁

I’d say…
-Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner in INK
-MUA waterproof eyeliner (is the best i’ve ever used. Really. Totally recomended. Is even soap proof!!!)
-MAC Buttery
-AVON Supershock

that’s it.. D:

I don’t really have a “Top 5”, since I really only use one on a regular basis, which is L’Oreal Lineur Intense (brush tip) in black. I also really like MAC Fluidline in Delineate, although it’s a PITA to use (the color makes the effort worthwhile). Stargazer makes wonderful liquid liners, as well, and they’re very inexpensive (the only issue I have with the brand is I have to order from the UK, so it’s a bit annoying). As for pencil liners, again, I have to go with L’Oreal; WnW & Maybelline (the red pencils) are my HG’s for brows ATM.

1. Essence gel liner in black
2. Kat Von D tattoo liquid liner in Trooper (black)
3. YSL Cream Eyeliner in 04 Sea Black (navy)
4. MAC fluidline in Dipdown (brown)
5. Urban Decay 24/7 Perversion (black)

Hmmmm…I don’t know if I have a top 5. But my top brand is UD 24/7 Liners…and right now, I’m loving the Ocho Loco set. Plus until recently, I tended to stick to black or brown liners. It wasn’t until I started using UD that I really used liner anyway. I owned them but didn’t really care for any of them so I would usually skip them. So my 5 list isn’t really concrete…except for #1 lol.

1. Perversion (top fave!)
2. Psychedelic Sister (loved a look I did with it)
3. Whiskey
4. Bourbon
5. Binge

I gave away every Zero I had (I swear it seemed like the most abused “free” liner in the world lol) because it looks so blah in comparison lol. There may be better pencils out there but I’m happy so I haven’t bothered looking any more!
