  • my fav liner is a black gel, but i do love some soft blendable pencils in other daily coordinating colors [ud 24/7 my fav for those right now] ive heard great things about the smashbox pencils though!

  • Eileen Morales

    My favorite shade of eyeliner is a bronzy brown shade I’m using the colorstay liquid but I also use pencil (all drugstore ones except for a Stila one that I’ve used up) I haven’t found my HG in Pencil yet.. so I would love to give the smashbox ones a whirl:)

  • Anna S

    i like the purple liner to accentuate my eyes

  • Shari

    Right now I’m using Trish McEvoy 24 hour definer pencils. They’re sort of a cream shadow pencil.

  • Daintynymph

    My typical go to eyeliner is a black twist up pencil eyeliner. I’m just too lazy to use gel or sharpen pencils. When I want to do a really quick look, I use a purple eyeliner because my eyes are green and it stands out very nicely.

  • Kimberly

    My favorite eyeliner is the gel pencil, and I normally only wear brown or black.

They are longwearing and go on smooth adn the Blue JAde really brings out the green in my hazel eyes. I don’t know ear I’d be without it.

  • I love any type of eyeliner that will actually stay on! I prefer a pencil on my lower lids but a dark thin line of black liquid liner on top is my trademark 🙂

  • Mamavalveeta03

    Up until recently, my favorite eyeliner was Bobbi Brown’s Gel Ink long-wear eyeliner. But lately, I’m really into the Smashbox liners in the pencil form. A friend convinced me that they would actually stay on….and they DO!!!

    I am really enjoying the new “gel pencils”, or “liquid pencils”, like CoverGirl’s LiquiBlast and the Urban Decay 24/7 liners. I love gel eyeliner but the ease of a pencil is really nice, and the regular types of pencils always, always smudge and transfer with my hooded eyelids. I love classic black to make my eyes stand out, but I also love experimenting with purples, greens, and blues. Love your blog, thanks for the giveaway! (I’ve been wanting this liner set ever since it came out!) 🙂

  • Liz

    I’m a huge fan of gel liners, because they give me the precision of a liquid but are far more forgiving of my less than steady hand. I’m quite fair skinned, so charcoal wins out over classic black for a less severe look.
