Eye Liner

I have eye liner issues! It NEVER stays on! I think it's just me because I have tried Mark, Lancome, Clinique, Alamay, you name it- all long lasting, water proof, etc. A few weeks ago I read a magazine blurb about Urban Decay's 24/7 eye liner. Tried it- it bleeds. Is it just me? I've tried primer, using pressed powder under the liner. Surely there's a solution! (Emily??? bail me out!) I know liquid eye liner's supposed to be good for the issue- but let's be real here. I am waaaaaaaaaaay to much of a klutz. Like I could get it on without it being all over my face.

So what's the answer?


  1. Have you ever tried using eyeshadow as an eyeliner? Sometimes I'll do that, and it goes on a little smoother.

  2. I use Sephora - anything there works!

  3. Ash!! I love the gel and liquid liners, but have you tried the eye-markers? They look like little sharpie markers but go on as eye liner. They work well for me, and they are sooo easy to put on (basically like drawing a marker on your eyelid.) Also, if you set any kind of eyeliner (especially gel, liquid, or marker) with a dark eyeshadow, they last longer.

    check these out -- the elf one is just $1 and i found it at target...would recommend the black color.

  4. Oh my gosh- I love you guys! Going shopping.

  5. I am just as big of a clutz... i use this

    it's liquid... just wet the flat brush & glide.


  6. I have used smudge pot by stila - found at sephora it works great, just make sure you get a good brush.
    Or else, almay liquid liner comes with a really short brush/handle, so you can hold on pretty close to where you are applying it... instead of having to hold the handle 5 inches from where the brush is... so its great!

    good luck!

Playing with and keeping up with my nephew and niece take up a lot of my time. Van Geaux takes up the rest of it. Work is an afterthought most days! I like to be outside- but not when it's too hot. I get bored at my desk all day. Niki keeps my world spinning and without her and AC I'd lose it. My work ethic crashes at 4 p.m. daily and I live my sweet puppy and my hedgehog whenever I am not at Niki's. I truly believe naps are quality pass-time events, and sometimes I say bad words at work. I'm pretty sure I'm insane on multiple levels and I believe rules don't apply to me.
It seems that my life is quite entertaining. I didn't realize this myself, but was informed of it by my friends- who are rather entertained by tales of my life occurrences.

I'm far from a professional writer. These are just stories, comments, and other items for simple amusement. Hopefully it's a fun read, as Shannon plans to edit it into a book one day! Maybe we'll become famous, and maybe we'll just have some good laughs at my expense (and some other characters in my life). Either way, happy reading!
