I was drawn to this color at the same time I became obsessed with MUFE #15 lipstick. I love teal colored eyeliners so this one made its way home with me. The felt pen made it easy to apply the eyeliner. I was concerned about the tip because I haven’t had much success with felt tip liners in the past. But this one worked so well I could line my lower eye lid with no problems.  As you can see in the photo the liner looks fantastic.

A huge problem arose after wearing the eyeliner for a couple of hours. My eyes are a little watery which caused the eyeliner on  near my lower eyelashes to melt off.  I saw a puddle of eyeliner! It looked like teal tears were seeping out of my eyes! What a mess. I had to wipe it away with a tissue before it bleed down my face.

The eyeliner on my upper eyelids faded after a few hours. Horrors! So pale above and melting off below! I loved the color but eyeliner that won’t stay put is worthless to me. I returned the eyeliner to Sephora and went back to my trusty LA Splash liquid eyeliners.

I like to use liquid eyeliner on my upper eyelids because it stays on longer than pencil with my combination skin.  I’ve tried several brands and some make my eyes itch.  The two liners that really work for me are from two different brands.

My favorite black eyeliner is from Guerlain’s Divinora. Its $34 so a little pricey for an eyeliner but if you want to splurge try it. It has staying power and is easy to apply.

Vincent Longo’s Bluetto makes my eye look vivid and audacious. I use this one on a daily basis. I can’t live without this color. It’s only $18.50 and lasts all day. You’ll need eye makeup remover to get it off completely.

A liquid eyeliner I plan to avoid is by Hard Candy. I tried Asphalt, a black eyeliner and that stuff was hard to get off even with eye makeup remover. I thought I’d have to rub off my skin to remove it.  A disappointing experience because I was ready to try all their exciting colors.
