My Favorite Eyeliners of 2010

I prefer pencil and liquid eyeliners over gel or cream liners simply because they are more convenient. I don't have to look for a brush or clean it after I'm done and I can throw it in my purse if I need to touch up. With that said, the con of using eyeliners is finding a good one that will perform as well as gel liners. I try to stick to drugstore products whenever possible. Problem is there isn't too many quality drugstore eyeliners out there.

1. Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner (black). This is my HG eyeliner and the one I mostly use. Couln't find a good drugstore dupe so I had to settle with this one. This is a marker type of liquid liner with fine felt-tip. This makes applying liquid liner super easy. It's very black, pigmented, not completely waterproof but definitely long lasting. This is my second one. My first one lasted me over 7 months with daily use! Definitely worth getting if you are looking for a marker/felt-tip type of eyeliner that won't dry out, which is a common problem I find in drugstore brands.
2. MAC Superslick Liquid Eyeliner - Marked for Glamour. Dark silver liner with bluish-green and pink micro-shimmers.
3. MAC Superslick Liquid Eyeliner - Desires & Devices. Antique gold with a greenish undertone and gold micro-shimmers.
4. MAC Superslick Liquid Eyeliner - Signature Blue. Dark navy blue with blue micro-shimmers.
5. MAC Superslick Liquid Eyeliner - Treat me nice. Not sure how to describe this green but it's very pretty and has a subtle gold sheen due to the micro-shimmers.
6. NYX Liquid Crystal Liner -  Crystal Jade. These are the best glitter liners on the market and the price is ooo so nice too. I love every color.
7. NYX Liquid Crystal Liner -  Crystal Pink
8. NYX Liquid Crystal Liner -  Crystal Gold
9. NYX Liquid Crystal Liner -  Crystal Pewter
10. NYX Studio Liquid Liner - Extreme Purple
11. NYX Studio Liquid Liner - Exreme Blue. My favorite color from this line. These eyeliners are so good and affordable.
12. NYX Studio Liquid Liner - Extreme Gold
13. NYX Studio Liquid Liner - Extreme Silver

I prefer to use liquid liners on my upper lash line and pencils on my lower lash line. I find that when using pencils on my upper lash line some of the particles gets caught between my lashes and as I blink they migrate downward, giving me raccoon eyes a few hours later, lol. Pencils are a better when used on the waterline too but you want to use those with a good staying power so it stays there longer.

1. NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil - Black Bean. Great as a base for smokey looks.
2. NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil - Slate. This is just a gorgeous dark silver cream liner that works great for smokey looks too.
3. NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil - French Fries. I love the gold sheen on this brown. I mostly use it as a liner on my lower lash line.
4. NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil - Cottage Cheese. I love using this to highlight inner corners of my eyes, brow bone, and lower lash line. It does a nice job at brightening tired eyes because if it's pearly white sheen.
5. NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil - Yogurt. It's a pinkish neutral cream shadow that works nice for an all over lid base for a neutral look.
6. NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil - Milk. If you want to bring the colors of your eyeshadows to life and make them look more vibrant, try using this as a base.
7. Prestige Total Intensity Eyeliner - Daring Green. These eyeliners are so smooth, creamy, and long-wearing. They do smudge a little bit when used on the upper lash line, however, they are pretty long wearing. The colors are darker than anticipated with a little bit of sheen but still very pretty.
8. Prestige Total Intensity Eyeliner - Fearless Teal.
9. Prestige Total Intensity Eyeliner - Fierce Blue.
10. Milani Liquif'Eye -Silver. I wish they had more colors. This definitely beats Urban Decay 24-7 liners! The quality and staying power is amazing and better than some high-end brands. The price is very friendly.
11. Milani Liquif'Eye - Gold.
12. L'oreal HIP color chrome eyeliner - Violet Volt. My favorite purple-ish eyeliner. It's creamy and long-wearing too. No budge or smudge with this one, yay!
13. Lancome Le Crayon Kohl Waterproof - Blanc Audacity. This last pretty well on the waterline and helps brighten eyes. A little pricey but you can get it for a really good deal on, which is where I got it from.

Anyways, lol, you know they are my favorites when you see the same brand with a lot of different colors.

  1. Chciałabym otworzyć swój salon kosmetyczny i zastanawiam się nad tym gdzie kupić kombajn kosmetyczny 5w1 w Warszawie i kombajn kosmetyczny 12w1 cena. Wiem jednak, że jest to bardzo duża inwestycja i sporo pieniędzy musiałabym wydać za jednym razem. Z drugiej strony i tak wyjdzie mi to taniej, niż miałabym kupować każde urządzenie z osobna... Gdzie najlepiej szukać takich sprzętów? Czy możecie polecić jakąś hurtownie? Czy warto zamawiać przez Internet? Wybrałam sklep,,,
