Considering I only picked it up as an experimental product, I’m genuinely surprised at how stubborn Sephora brand gel liner is. It wore with none to modest creasing for twelve hours, proceeded to last another six or so after I forgot to take it off before I passed out asleep, and then finally came off when I scrubbed it down with an Almay oil-based remover along with soap and water.

I swatched a Sephora brand felt tip eyeliner on my hand and after many hand washes and a MAC wipe it was still there. Didn’t buy it but I was impressed and apprehensive about having that on my eyes.

I had the same reaction to Jemma Kid’s liquid liners. Loved how opaque they swatched on my hand but was completely cowed by the fact that it took two days to completely fade. There’s a line between an appreciative staying power and what amounts to a lot of hard scrubbing in a delicate area that I won’t cross.

MAC Ruby Woo, MAC Prolong wear lipstick (LOVE), Estee Lauder Double Wear Lipstick and Lise Watier 24hr Glam Mascara! The mascara was a huge pain in the ass to get off though…. I have never had ANY other long wear product that my cleanse off oil didn’t melt off right away

I agree with the Liquidlast Liners! I think I had that stuff on my hand for like three days once. It was crazy. It would not come off with just normal washing.

Maybelline The Falsies Waterproof. That stuff stays on forevar. It lasted my entire trip from Pittsburgh to Sydney, and I still had to fight with it to come off (all up over 30 hours)

MUFE’s Eye Seal with whatever pigments. That stuff wears like iron! Makes me kinda scared to wear it as more than just an eyeliner.

MUFE Aqua eyeliners..it didnt budge even whn wiped with Johnson baby oil..i literally had to flake it off which scared me from wearing it again ;)..lipstick it would be guerlain rouge G, about 6 hours plus a stain lasting another 2 hrs..this is without any special technique for making it last longer.

Gel liners in general! I’m still using the pot of Maybelline gel liner that I got over a year ago. It has just about never smudged on me (not that I can remember), and it’s STILL creamy after all this time!

Gosh Extreme Art Eyeliners… It’s seriously hard to get them off, even with make up remover that is made for waterproof make up! But I love them for their staying power.

I think the my favorite eyeliner with is the NARS Larger then Life eyeliner took forever to get off my hands at Sephora. I bought one in black and it doesn’t wear off though out the day. I haven’t worn a liquid liner in years, but I used to buy one by wet and wild. I remember being in high school and forgetting to take off that particular liquid liner, and it would be there the next day.

Great question because I’m looking for a liner that will STAY on my lower lash line and not melt and run !! I have no problem with my upper lashline. UD 24/7 liners run on my lower lash line as do most gel liners.

May try the MAC Liquidlast Liners 🙂

My longest wearing makeup product is Revlon Color Stay foundation .. always looks good, but is a pain to get off ( must scrub ) so I only wear on those occasions where I need long lasting foundation.

I have the same problem with the lower lash line smudging…I’ve even tried waterproof liquid liners (like the MUFE Aqua one) and they don’t work at all!

The best product I’ve found thus far is the Sephora Retractable Waterproof Pencil Liner. I’ve only bought it in black, so I can only vouch for that color, but it stays on pretty darn well through my entire work day. Small smudging at the corners, but very minute compared to everything else I’ve tried. And if I work out with it on (and it isn’t the end of the day), it doesn’t budge. It’s, so far, my HG eyeliner. Still looking for the 100% magical one, but this is good enough for me.
