|Makeup Forever Aqua Black Gel Liner|
Find it here on the Sephora website for $26.00 CAD
One thing that bothered me about this product is how fast the cream can dry up. You need to be very mindful of putting the cap on as soon as you are done. Also, when it's almost done, the cream left at the bottom gets pretty stiff and hard to work with so watch out! BUT all that can be forgiven because it gives a gorgeous dark finish.
|MAC blacktrack fluidliner|
Find it here on the MAC website for $18.00 CAD
This is a great deal for the price! MAC fluidline is very soft and smooth and VERY easy to work with. It adds a decent dark finish.
However, when I use it, I have to go over the liner once or twice to make sure I get the dark finish I like. If you aren't too particular of having a deep dark liner than this is a good pick for you. Other than that, its a great liner.
|Clinique Brush On Cream Liner|
By far the best gel liner I have tried!
Find it at The Bay for only $16.00 CAD
I LOVE this cream liner. Its VERY smooth, easy to work with and long lasting. You definitely do not need to worry about smudge. One stroke is enough to get a deep dark finish, and the odd time you will have to go over it but that depends on your preference. It's also safe to use on your waterline. Even better, it comes with a little brush!
|Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner|
Find it at Sephora for only $20.00
When I purchased this last year, it was a bit more expensive (around $26.00) so now that the price has dropped, it definitely changes the game! This product is great because it's very smooth and easy to work with. BUT, It's actually a bit too smooth (yes there is such a thing as too smooth) so you have to be careful about smudge. It is definitely long lasting and provides a nice dark look
L’Oreal Infallible Gel Liner
This is a recent product release from L'oreal. Personally, I love all things L'oreal. Amongst the drugstore gel liners (such as Maybeline) this is one of the best. If you've got beauty on a budget, I would try this. It has a soft, creamy and smooth texture and it is easy to work with. You may have to go over your liner a few strokes to achieve the desired darkness. Another bonus- comes with a brush too! It is pretty long lasting and stays on strong so you don't need to worry about smudge too much. However, when you are applying it be VERY careful because it takes a few minutes to dry.
Out of my TOP FIVE picks, my favourite is the Clinique Brush On Cream Liner. If you haven't already tried it you are missing out!
The Perfect Brush
I've spent a considerable amount of time and money searching for the best brush. The truth is, as long as you find an eyeliner brush that has thinner bristles, it will be easier for you, and you can create a thin line or a thick one depending on the look you are going for.
If you don't mind spending, try a nice angle brush from MAC or the Sephora Brand angle brush available at Sephora.
BUT you can get the same result (maybe even better) using elf brushes.
