6 Tried and tested eye liner pencils that’ll stay in place whatever the temperature + One to buy if you’re in the US

I don’t know if you’ve ever had that moment when you catch sight of yourself in the mirror only to find your carefully smudged eyeliner pencil has either left the scene entirely or spread itself out under your eyes.  Even some of those eye pencils that are sold as ‘waterproof’ ‘long lasting’ ‘16 hour’ by major brands.

So a couple of weeks ago I gritted my teeth and chucked out all of those that I knew, come the sunshine, were a risky proposition.  This hurt as some of these beauty products weren’t inexpensive.  I was left with 6 that I knew would never let me down.

For colour choice you really can’t beat MAC and Chanel, so if you’re looking for that elusive blue/green or very dark purple those are places to start with.  However I’m never to be found without one of my Stila Smudge Sticks or Bobbi Brown eyeliners.  None of these will let you down.  Owl eyes be gone!

Finally, if you happen to be in the US, and you love beauty for less, skip over to Target, or your local CVS and invest in every colour of L’Oreal’s Infallible Never Fail eyeliner pencils.  Great value for money and just as good as anything else.
