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.
However, as I have noted time and again, I don’t have very oily lids. The only smudgies I get usually come from pencil liners but even then its nothing dramatic.
One way to help liner stay on the lids, or eyeshadow in general is to seal it with something like Make Up For Ever Eye Seal. It makes color budge proof! Awesomeness in a little bottle.
Now, over to you oily lid gals – do lets help Joan out:-
What eyeliners do you recommend for those with oily lids?
