I have tried many [affordable] eyeliners: Pencils, Liquid with a felt tip, Liquid with brush tip & Pen Felt Tip. I do not prefer high-end ones for eyeliners because they do expire in less than a year. I start to toss them whenever they already change the smell. I have several problems with these eyeliners since some of them smudge, cuts out the 'wing' at the end of the day, cracks, change of color - from dark black to faded gray or fades totally. I like to apply eyeliner alone, without any eye primer. I just think that eye primers are for eyeshadows. :P
Let me share with you what I'm using lately. These are 2 products!
- L.A. Colors GRAFIX eyeliner - Black
- Etude House Oh m' Eye Line #1 Black - P248
After my foundation, I used L.A. Colors GRAFIX Eyeliner first then after it dries, I started to line it again with Etude House Oh m' Eye Line
They're very black, Oh m' Eye Line tends to crack when used alone - but I really like how it gives a Matte Black finish. LA Colors Grafix Eyeliner looks black with shine.
I first tried them both just yesterday and I'm so happy with the result that I blog it today Haha!
- 8am - application
- 7pm - I got home from work and I have them in shape
- 9pm - still there and I start to remove my makeup it with a wet towel - I find it easier to remove makeup using a microfiber face towel :)
