Which Felt Tip Eyeliner Pen is best?
I have a hard time applying eyeliner of any kind to my eyelids and thought that I would try my luck at using a Liquid Eyeliner Pen. I own both the Stila and Buxom Liquid Eyeliner Pens in black. I've noticed lately that my eyeliner at the end of the day seems to have separated in some spots or bled along my upper lash line and I don't know why. I also have somewhat oily eyelids if that means anything. I've tried applying my eyeliner two different ways (#1:I pull my eyelid straight down with one finger so that I can get really close to my lashline with the eyeliner and #2.I've tried pulling my eyelid taut at an angle to apply my eyeliner). I've seen lots of people apply their top eyeliner without having to tug on their eyelid and I wish I was them. I don't think I could ever learn to do that. I've tried and the line ends up way too thick or the eyeliner goes somewhere where I don't want it to. Anyways, I was wondering if maybe I should try a different eyeliner pen or something? Are any of these eyeliners any good?:KAT VON D Tattoo Liner, Bobbi Brown Ink Liner or SMASHBOX Limitless Liquid Liner Pen.
I'm like the QUEEN of liquid liner. hahaaa.. but honestly, I've used it regulary for the past 3 years. I've tried everything!!!
I personally don't like liquid eye liner in the PEN form. It dries out alot quicker, and you get alot less product for the price you pay.
I always choose liquid liner in the bottle form. You get more product than the pen.
My personal favourites are:
-MAC Liquidlast Liner (WILL not budge. The brush can be kinda crappy... but I manage to work with it.)
-Sephora Waterproof Liquid Liner (Good formula for the price.. only issue is, the brush has fallen into the bottle!)
-Lancome ArtLiner (Very good for beginners, because the brush is well made and easy to work with)
But, I've also come to LOVE gel liners. They work the same as liquid.. but require a seperate brush. But honestly... it's SO worth it. I've converted to gel liners, after 3 years of strictly using liquid. Reason being.. you get SO much more product in a gel liner. All you need to get is a fine tip brush to go with it, and honestly I use one that I bought from the craft store! It was only $3!! Super great deal!! And it has a super fine tip.. this allows you to get a really thin line, and make your line presice.
My personal favourites are:
-Bobbi Brown Gel Liner (Very nicely made, and lasts pretty long)
-MAC Fluidline (Lasts very nicely throughout the day. Not as longlasting as the Inglot one.. but still a great option.)
-Inglot AMC Liner (will LITERALLY stay in place all day)
Lastly, if your eyeliner tends to smudge.. use a eye primer before you apply your liner. I love Nars Pro Prime Eye shadow base. It will keep your oily lids from creasing or smudging your liner throughout the day. Or you could use an all over setting spray like, Urban Decay All Nighter.. which will keep all your makeup in place!!
Hope that help!
i have oily eyelids and my eyes are deep set in the socket, so i have the beginnings of that droopy eye thing going on. that being said, i really love the lorac felt tip liner. she just has black and brown though, black is def the way to go. i think the liquid "ink" style pens are better because they don't dry and flake like a lot of the "brush and pot" colors do. but, you get more variety with the brush and pot style, but, they usually flake. try a primer if you want to go with the colors. too faced and urban decays are the best. good luck!
