Eye Found My Holy Grails!!

Hello Ladies,
Hope you're all keeping well! You'll have to excuse my awful pun! I'm a little bit of an eyeliner junkie but saying that I'm quite fussy about it! I hate  when you look in the mirror at the end of the day to be greeted with smudged panda eyes and black flecks all over your face, totally not the look we were going for! In the past few months I've been lucky enough to come across not 1 but 3 amazing eyeliners that do exactly what I want them to do and stay exactly where I tell them to! It would be selfish of me to keep them a secret so I thought I'd better share! So, without further ado,  here they are!! Apologies for the picture heavy post!

Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner 24Hr

This gel eyeliner is simply amazing! It's got such a silky smooth gel formula that it just glides on effortlessly. A lot of gel liners can tend to be a tad dry and drag on they eyelid a bit when being applied but the consistency of this is flawless. It comes with a brush too which is great quality and gives great application, It dries quite quickly which means it doesn't transfer when you blink which is always a huge bonus with gels. It claims to stay put for 24 hours and while I haven't put this to the test it has lasted all day and into the early hours of the morning without budging! I absolutely love this and I'd strongly recommend it to any gel liner virgins out there as it's just so easy to apply!

No.7 Stay Precise Felt Tip Eyeliner

This has become my daily go to eyeliner, it's just so handy to apply and lasts all day. I find that a lot of felt tip products such as eyeliners and lip stains tend to dry out quite fast and I always end up feeling hard done by but I've been using this for months and it's still just as good as the day I got it! I wouldn't usually go for No.7 products (don't ask me why) but they had this on offer in Boot's and I took a chance on it and picked it up and I'm so glad that I did! I love liquid eyeliners but find that a lot of the applicators that come with them are to be honest a bit rubbish so for me this eyeliner is in a league of its own! One sweep and wallah it's done! The shape of the pen makes it so easy to do flicks too, something that quite a lot of people struggle with!

 Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner

Now where to start with this little beauty?! It really is a miracle! Eyeliner that doesn't run down your face if you have a cry or get caught in the rain! I was a bit sceptical at first because I always find that if I apply eyeliner to my tear shelf it always seems to run away and end up under my lashline and I thought that this one would probably be the same. I was elated when it lasted me a whole day without moving so much as a millimeter! Its the 1st pencil eyeliner I've ever had that has stayed in place on my lower lashline for an entire day and without the need to reapply too might I add!! Hat's off to you Rimmel! :)

Here are some pic's of these amazing products in action!! Please excuse the dodgy photo editing, I'm still coming to terms with all this technological stuff! haha!
