On Rotation: Eye Liners

These days, I usually use pencil liners and liquid liners. I threw out all my gel liners a while ago because they were getting old and I didn’t buy any to replace them. I still have loads of pencils, and I still have 2 liquid liners (they DO dry out, so I’m not hoarding) so I’m not going to buy a gel liner until I have used up my liquid liners. I already know I’m going to buy a Bobbi Brown gel liner, because in my books, they are THE BEST.

I am using one liquid liner exclusively (Eyeko), until it’s dried out before I move on to my Bobbi Brown liquid liner, which is the last one I have in my stash. For pencils, I’ve been loving non blacks for a softer look. I have an olive and a blue, which go well with my dark brown eyes. I usually use neutrals / browns as eye shadows, and using blue / olive liners enhances the look.

Urban Decay pencil liners are one of my favourites and I have quite a few of them. I’m currently loving Stash and I don’t have much left of it. Bobbi Brown Precision Gel Liner in Sapphire is a beautiful dark blue which stays on my WATERLINE! I bought this last year but didn’t have a chance to blog about it. I also like that it twists up and that I have the option to sharpen it if I wanted to. The Eyeko liquid liner I have is in Ebony, which is not jet black, but more of a dark sepia. It’s not as stark as a black, and the fine pen tip gives a mean sharp cat eye flick.

These are a few on my vanity, on heavy rotation. On most days, I’d just skip eye shadow and go with a liner. I also sometimes skip mascara because I’m lazy like that. I bought the Urban Decay Stash from Sephora, the Bobbi Brown liner from Bobbi Brown of course, and Eyeko, from Beauty Bay. It’s also available at Sephora locally. What eye liners have you been using lately?
