Are you happy its Friday? I sure am even if I’m not in the country at the moment! 🙂
I’m handing the reins over to you to help a reader. This week we have a question from reader Joan, left in a comment on the L’Oreal gel liner:-
I do have oily lids so just wonder which eye liner is suitable for me to use. Could you pls advise?
Well since I don’t have oily lids I don’t have a problem with eyeliner staying on my lids, whether the pencil, liquid or gel sort.
From a personal point of view, I’ve found that some types of eyeliners stay on my lids better than others. However, I only ever line my upper lid – I’ve tried lining my lower lid but its mostly failure all the way. Besides I don’t think it enhances my eyes all that much 🙂
So the eyeliners I use in order of preference are:-
- Gel liners – I started with Bobbi Brown and my personal faves are Maybelline and L’Oreal gel liners. They tend to stay on longer compared to others I find.
- Pencil liners – I’ve used a few but a personal preference is Guerlain Kohl pencil. It does smudge on me sometimes these days, or transfer a little to my lower lid, but nothing that can’t be easily wiped away. Doesn’t leave me looking like a panda so that’s good.
- Liquid liners – These don’t smudge on me but I don’t like them as much because of the difficulty in applying. Its always a personal preference.
