Eyeliner Showdown: Black Pencil Liners

Hello everyone! I'd like to do another eyeliner showdown, which I love doing. I'll be doing four eyeliners, ranging from expensive to downright cheap. So I'll be doing black eyeliners. I have four contestants: Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes, Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Pencil, NYC Waterproof Pencil and Nichido Girls Night Out. I bought these four based on good reviews.

So here they are when swatched. Please excuse the MUFE swatch. I wasn't able to do it so properly.



I let some time pass, and then smudged them with my finger.

 

As you can see, there is no change in MUFE and NYC while UD smudged a little. Nichido smudged a lot.

Here are they after getting wet. No change in any of them.

 

  I once again smudged them with my finger. Nichido smudged even more.

 

So in the end, it was the MUFE and NYC that held up. Pretty nifty considering that the NYC pencil is only $5! Yey for cheapness!

wow, i thought urban decay would do well. I guess I'm wrong. Awesome post.

Thanks for stopping by and commenting. About the eyeliner trick, you have to make sure you tap off the excess powder on the brush or you'll some on your eye but i guess the trick wont really work well with people who wear contacts. Thanks for letting me know and i will edit my eyeliner post :)
