For something I use a lot, I rarely talk about liners. I've managed to find a few good liners both high end and high street. Here's my pick from my current crop.
My ultimate high end liner is the Kevyn Aucoin Precision Liquid Liner. I actually got this as part of a Christmas gift set so I'm not sure if its something I would have purchased myself being £27. However, this liner is literally foolproof. The very fine 'pen style' nib allows for precise application - the liner itself is pigmented and lasts all day.
Best for smudging
The Chanel Le Crayon Yeux Precision Eye Definer is perfect for smudging due to its double ended pencil. On the other end of the pencil is a small angled latex applicator for precise smudging for a smokey eye. I have the shade brun cuivre - a copper brown. The pencil is incredibly soft and pigmented, though sometimes I find its too soft and can lead to slight smearing.
The Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliners are ideal for anyone who hates sharpening. They're also smooth, pigmented and easy to apply. Again, these can be smudged out for smokey look.
Best for colour
My favourite colour liners are the Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Liner. These are creamy, smooth and come in a range of shades. They glide on easy and are great value for money. The nude shade is ideal for brightening the eye area.
Best intense black
My favourite intense black liner is the Avon Supershock Gel Eyeliner Pencil. Its highly pigmented, soft and longwearing. Great price and great formula.
