Black Eyeliner
(0) Hearts

I am looking for an affordable and good black eyeliner. I don't care if it's a drug store brand. The eyeliner I have now is from Maybelline and I hate it. It fades off quickly, and it's a not a bold black. I want an eyeliner that can make a bold line, and that doesn't smudge. If you have any eyeliners that fit these specifications please recommend them.

I use ELF's cream eyeliner in black, $3. You can see my review on it at www (dot) makeuphq (dot) blogspot (dot) com. It makes a nice black line and is easy to use. Make sure you use primer and set it with black shadow though, because if not it will wear off. I also like Sephora's nano eyeliner, $5. It's a pencil and makes a nice black line. If you want to look into a nicer one, then for $18 I would consider Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil. Hope I helped!


i know its a bit above drug store prices but in my opinion it's totally worth it! Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner its my all time fave. easy to work with, dries fast, bold, and remains perfect all day long!! a close runner up that is a bit cheaper is Buxom Gel Lashliner also easy to work with, dries a bit slower so if you make a mistake you have an easier time fixing it. also lasts well throughout the day but not as well as the bobbi brown. :smileyhappy:

MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack is a solid flat black that is easy to apply (gel liner) and lasts all day for me, even without a primer.

My favorite eyeliner is Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner Pencils which are waterproof, very creamy and soft and come in a wide variety of colors, which you can take a look at here:

Another very good eyeliner is Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes which is a self-sharpening eyeliner pencil that is waterproof and glides on smoothly.  You can read more about it at:

Hope this helps and have a great day!

I agree with @icysapphireeyes, Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner is the absolute best for a liquid/gel liner that is easy to apply and dries fast so you get a really good nice line that stays on all day and all night. Sometimes I have a hard time taking it off thats how great it works lol!   The one that I use that works great with my skin coloring(fair) and my eyecolor(hazel) is called Caviar Ink, it is just enough black with a hint of brown, i avoid black eyeliner because it is too harsh on my coloring.   It is applied with a brush. They have a bobbi brown brush specifically for it however, I just use my MAC brush #208.Here is the link for the Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner. 

Here is the link to the brush for the gel eyeliner.

Another great eyeliner that is above my price-range but I have tried it before at the makeup counter at Saks Fifth Avenue and had it used on me for my prom was the Dior Liquid Eyeliner. It is available on here Its really nice and silky and the pen feature illiminates having to use a brush unlike the BB gel eyeliner.

Hope this helps you! Liquid is great once you find the right one for you!! :smileyhappy:
