Best Eye Liners

I’ve decided to do my own little awards ceremony on makeupandbeauty.ie for a bit of fun. I’ll keep them coming…

Here are my favourite eye liners of 2009:

Loreal Contour Kajal: I pick up this liner at some stage every day. I use it on my water line and it stays put. Mine is black, it’s pigmented, easy to blend and doesn’t budge when it sets.




MAC Fluidline – This is probably my favourite liner of 2009. The main reason for this is that it’s the quickest and easiest to apply. I use a slanted liner brush to apply. It’s cost €7 more than the Avon equivalent but it’s 10 times better. I’ll be picking up this goodie in other colours.



L’Oreal Super Liner : This is a great liquid liner. The nib is easy to work with and it gives a high shine line to the eye. This one is great for winged liner.





Urban Decay 24/7 Liners – My favourite is Zero (black). These are the most pigmented and smoothest liners I have tried this year. I’m a massive fan! As liners go these are foolproof. The only downside is that they need to be sharpened with every use.



Disappointments of 2009: Eye Liners

Bobbi Brown Gel Liner – Loved it while it  was fresh but after a few months of everyday use it congealed. I only got a third of the way down the pot before it was unusable. So as I much as I loved it I won’t be re-buying.

Make up For Ever Retractable Liner – After a week the liner fell into the container.

Avon Liner Pot: I found these hard to work with and not as pigmented as Mac Fluidline. I used them twice and never touched them again.

What’s your favourite eyeliner or 2009?

    I totally agree with your list, and I also love MUFE aqua eyes and Benefit Badgal Liner. I haven’t had that problem with the Bobby Brown gel liners, yet…
    :( They aren’t that old, though. Bummer

    Oh, I’m glad you posted this, Amy. I was going to try the Bobbi Brown Gel Liner, but I would have wasted my money if it is useless after a time. Now I know to get the MAC Fluidline… that will be my next liner purchase! Thanks!

    P.S. My favorite liners right now are Prestige Waterproof – they are very good.

    I’ve been wanting to try the MAC Fluildline and the UD 24/7 Liners. Hopefully, I’ll be able to try them this year =]

    I absolutely love the GOSH Velvet Touch eyeliner pencils. They’re a lot like the Urban Decay ones, lovely and creamy, but only £5 each in Superdrug. I’ve got maybe 10 of them and I’ll keep going until I’ve got them all (I’m a bit obsessed!).

      Sounds like I should try them! Thanks for sharing :)

    Hey Amy. I also have the 24/7 liner set and the L’Oreal super liner. I love all the little Urban Decay liners in the set. The colours are gorgeous and it gives you a pop of colour without being too dramatic.

    I got the L’Oreal liner free with my Telescopic Explosion mascara, there’s a Boots deal going on with that.
    I haven’t tried any Mac liners, but Rimmel ones are surprisingly good.

    By the way, where can you buy NYC in Ireland? I’ve been looking everywhere!
    Love, Holly

      HI Holly, Superdrug in Omni Centre have NYC. I’m loving the set too :)

    Hi Amy,

    I actually picked up a NYC liquid eyeliner the other day and it’s great! It is a smokey gray with a small amount of sparkle, and the applicator is a brush, versus a felt tip (which I don’t really like). The brush’s bristles are long and stiff, which helps with lining a nice even line.
    And it’s only $1.99! Not sure if you have NYC Cosmetics in Ireland, but I’d be happy to send you one if you want to try it out!

      Ah thanks Kirsten :) I think we have NYC here so I’ll pick one up and give it a try. It sounds lovely! Thanks for letting me know :)
