Oily skin. I've had it all my life. Wearing makeup with this type of skin can be tricky. The oil just seems to dissolve the makeup. AND I touch my face a lot too - which doesn't help. I blame my oily skin for the way eyeliner seems to evaporate - or worse - smear when I try to wear it.  Yuck. 
As a result, I have a drawer full of eyeliners I've tried. MY MISSION: find one that stays on! Recently the planets lined up at my local Sephora store when the clerk recommended one that really does stay all day {for me at least}. 

First, here are some of the brands I've tried. {I don't even know all of them, because many were just thrown away in frustration!}

  • Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel - was pretty good, but not what I was looking for. Plus it comes in a jar & dries out quickly.
  • Revlon Color Stay - I think this was one I saw recommended on a local TV show. I ran to the store to get it. If you like a liner than can smudge, this would be great. For me, it was more like little black circles under my eyes. 
  • Cover Girl Perfect Blend Pencil Crayon - Again, easy to put on & it comes right off when I wear it.
  • Lancome Le Crayon Khol - Nope!
  • Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Pencil - Highly recommended by a dear friend {Hi Becky!}. It stays on her all day. On me, I had raccoon eyes in no time.
Aaaaannnnd there were more. The one I've been waiting for my whole life - KAT VON D. TATTOO LINER - {CLICK HERE to view or purchase it}.  I use "Mad Max Brown" & I'll tell you what - it does not come off! And, for a liquid, it is easy to apply because it has a tiny brush applicator. So I can get a really thin line if I want one.  What's your favorite eyeliner?

PS - Next time I'll tell you about a few more beauty products I can't live without.
