gel eyeliner hurts inner rims
(0) Hearts

hi! ok i have bought and tried all different gel eyeliners (for inner rim of eyes) the urban decay, clinique, makeup forever, bobbi brown, maybelline, other brands etc...they go on smooth and ok when first applied. but my eyes start to hurt after few hours and at end of the day, i can't take it anymore so i look closely in mirror and looks like the eyeliner started to crack/get dried into pieces! what's going on here???

@ juicy4jenny - I used to get the same problem using any eye pencils and gel or cream liners and found the best that works with my eyes is using a matte eyeshadow with an angled liner or brow brush.  If none of the recommendations work for you then I would definitely try using a matte eyeshadow.  The biggest perk with using this alternative is it lasts FOREVER!


Currently I'm using the Sephora Collection Colorful Mono Eyeshadow in Must Have 06 ( with the Sephora Collection Professionnel Angled Liner/Eyeliner Brush #15 (  I love using the angled liner brush because it makes it quick and easy to line the eye and also do a perfect line for a cat eye.  You could also use the Sephora Collection Double-Ended Smokey Eye Brush ( which has a smudger on the other end.


I hope this helps and Good Luck! Smiley Wink
