I have Lord it up and its a really beautiful color! I cannot wear shimmery eye liners on my waterline so thats a shame! I have my eyes on Brown(Out) so many bloggers have raved about it!

I’m with you on Brown(out) – I might actually spring for that one in a full size (I got a sample size) despite the insane price. My additions would be IT Cosmetics Rich Plum gel liner, GOSH Metallic Brass pencil, Sephora Galaxy Girl and Tango Night, and Nars Baalbek and Snake Eyes (I think that’s actually 6 in addition to Brown(out)!)

Rich Ground is so pretty! I don’t have enough eyeliners (yet) to really go for specifc colours, but I like the idea of coppers, plums and autumn browns. Maybe a pewter or silvery taupe too, especially as the weather gets colder.

Ooh, I want to try that Bobbi Brown one! 😀 I would like to try any of Bobbi’s stuff at some point, actually. We have her line here, I just somehow have never indulged…

My favourite fall eyeliner is probably UD Stash, because the olivey green suddenly seems more appropriate (it’s not a colour I wear often). 😀 I keep meaning to pair it with a copper, but then I remember that I don’t have the kind of firey bronze orange copper liner I’m looking for.. 😛

I’m so happy that Rich Ground is on this list 😉 I fall in love with this color and Black Ivy right now! Suntan and Blackplum looks great too

Lord It Up looks really pretty, was it a LE or is it available all the time?

Last night I went to a newly opened Ulta store and for some reason I stopped at Mally’s beauty aisle and these creamy liners are gorgeous. There is a Dark Chocolate shade that’s absolutely gorgeous and I might have to get it for fall.

Marc Jacobs Brown(out) & MAC Lord It Up are my favorites and excellent choices for Fall.
The Marc Jacobs has amazing staying power, MAC is well MAC (hahaha yes MAC lover) both are very pretty colors. 🙂

I recently bought the Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner by Bobbi Brown in the color Black Mauve (no 23). I am really looking foreward to use this color.

I don’t own any of these. I will check BB Black Plum. Gorgeous colour.I like MAC Lord It Up too. I think I have a 20% off coupon, might use that on the BB one. BB is quite expensive, I think and few things have really caught my eye at the BB counter. Guess I never looked at the liners

Ah! These shades make my heart sing! Another great one is the Tarina Tarantino warm bronzey liner, I think they’re called Hyperliners, the pink pencils. NYX has a couple good bronze liners too

Love Marc Jacobs gel eyeliner. Never tried to put liner with shimmer on the waterline. After reading what everyone’s says, I don’t think I’ll try it.

I’ve never had that problem, thank goodness. I know a lot of people do. This looks dark and cool enough to work on most people, I would think.

I got Rich Ground at a CCO and was debating about keeping it or not, but obviously after this list I’m going to use it. BTW, I looked at the original review and saw my own old comment, and dang I’ve learned a lot from you over the years!

The Mac coppery gel liner looks beautiful! All the others do as well, but that one really catches my eye. I wasn’t planning on doing any makeup purchases this weekend, but this has changed my mind.

The Marc Jacobs Gel liners are INCROYABLE! Brown(out) looks stunning for fall – or any season really. Can never go wrong with a bit of bronze!

Hi! I love the look of MJ Brown(out). Does it apply as easy as it looks like it would?
I am still upset about not buying MAC Eclair. I keep looking at the CCO, but it never shows up. I do t trust eBay. The packaging on some of them just screams fake.
Great list! Thank you!
