My New Favourite Pencil Eyeliner

I think a black pencil eyeliner was the first make-up I wore religiously everyday. I piled that thing on like no one's business back in middle school, and although we've gone our separate ways for the past year or so, I'm back to loving it - and one in particular: the Milani Liquif'eye Metallic Eyeliner in Black.


I know, I know, it's inaccessible in the UK but this is a forewarning - if you ever do a swap, if you ever go to the States, if you LIVE in the States - this is an AMAZING eyeliner.

Now I don't have particularly watery eyes, but pencil eyeliners generally do not like my waterline. They like chilling in the bags under my eyes, which I'm not so cool with. But I found that this Milani eyeliner will stay put on your upper waterline for the whole day, and if it does migrate from your bottom waterline, it'll just be right under your waterline, where it looks like eyeliner anyway (not giving you a black halo).


I also love how black it is. Above you can see in order from left to right: MAC Powerpoint Pencil in Engraved, AVON Supershock Gel Eyeliner in Black, and the Milani Liquif'eye. MAC is just blown out of the water in terms of pigmentation (and staying power), and while Avon comes close in the blackness, it just does not compete when it comes to staying on the waterline and not transferring. You can also see that the Milani have fully infiltrated all the little wrinkles, whereas some of Avon have glided over them.

In conclusion, I love this stuff. It really helps round my eyeshape a little bit when I line my upper waterline paired with my gel eyeliner on my top lid, and for nights out, I don't have to worry about looking like I'm crying and constantly wiping under my eyes (and rubbing away concealer/smudging and streaking eyeliner etc., etc.,). In short it's an absolute dream! :)

What is your favourite pencil eyeliner?
Have you tried the Milani one? :)
