Best eyeliner for the waterline/tightlining?
[ Edited ]

Hi! Smiley Happy I need some recommendations on any budge-proof liners for the waterline. I have already tried the overly well-known Urban Decay 24/7 in zero and it has smudged about 1cm below my eyes...I haven't tried putting gel/liquid liner on my waterline as my eyes are sensitive and water easily.

 

I heard stila's smudge stick was great and also the MUFE liners. Has anyone tried them both or better and could offer a comparison? It's difficult to tell which is better when there are many of fans of each product saying that theirs is best. :\

 

And for those people who's eyeliner stays put on the waterline, any tips? Smiley Very Happy For tightlining, it always seems like the eyeliner would transfer to the bottom waterline? Not sure if it's the result of bad technique or product or both. And for the lower waterline, it travels downwards as time passes. 

 

I think this has a lot to do with eye shape also. Some of my friends have no problems at all when using the same product. Perhaps, it's because my eyes get extra squinty when I'm laughing and the liner moves around. Smiley Sad I've been sticking to the upper lashline lining for now which I use gel liners for. I like a clean and precise line but I hate that it turns into a mess. I also don't do touch-ups frequently so...any help?

 

EDIT: So I have gotten the stila smudegestick and the bareminerals round the clock pencil liners. I have done a hand test comparing between the two and UD 24/7 and UD definitely smudges more. I have only wore the bareminerals on my bottom waterline thus far and I am definitely repurchasing! I have combination of watery eyes(contacts made my eyes more sensitive) and oily lids so I would reccommend this to others as well! I'm  sure stila's would pass the test as it did on my hand. Thanks for the feedback ladies! Smiley Very Happy

A hand test is never as definitive as using on your eye - completely different skin 'environment'...

I like the Marc Jacobs liners. They're a good mix between gel and pencil. I haven't been impressed with UD pencils, but the MJ ones glide on very well.

I use Clinique's Quickliner on my water line everyday (Intense Chocolate). I LOVE it. It does end up smearing a tad underneath by around 2-3pm, but a quick wipe of my finger fixes that (Assuming I put it on at 6am). My only complaint is I run thru the pencil so often, it gets expensive at $15 each. I say pencil, but it's creamy.

I don't have oily eyelids nor watery eyes, but I haven't had any success with the waterline. I have had success with my tight line so I've just been sticking with that until I get a new eyeliner and try try again. :-) What I've been using is NYC Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil (drugstore brand, not NYX). I've used the moody blue, black and dark brown. For me the brown stays the best. Which is another thing that I've noticed about eyeliners in general...color matters. I've had blacks that were wonderful, bought the brown and smeary mess or hard like a rock.

The one that I've heard of recently that I don't see mentioned here is Inglot AMC Eyeliner Gel in 77. As there isn't an Inglot store near me I searched and found that they are carried by beautylish. Again, haven't tried it, but heard good things so I thought that I'd pass it on. Hope this helps.

I normally would say UD in perversion. Zero isn't black enough for me. However, after having the pt perk of the MJ gel eyeliner, AMAZING! it literally is the ease and feel of gel in a pencil form. Glides on, no irritation and it lasts longer.
