I do a lot of research on makeup before I buy & when it comes to eyeliner, have tried the 3 "best," along with some others. First I used Urban Decay, the pencil that people would complain wouldn't come off. Well, it didn't even last an hour and my eyes looked like I got beat up. Smudged EVERYWHERE. Bobbi Brown's gel liners were next. I used them for a few months...Sepia Ink (the brown) smeared a bit, but more so wore off wayy too soon in the day. Granite Ink (a black color), smeared terribly. With that, I just tried Mac Fluidline. Violetta (I think its called) doesn't smudge, but the color is very, very light that you almost can't see it. 2 weeks ago I went out and bought a dark brown and a black fluidline...and they smear terribly. I feel like I've tried everything. I like the gels, I like putting my liner on with a brush. I haven't used pencil in years, and of the pencils I did use, they smeared too. I've tried putting Urban Decay's primer potion on underneath, no luck. Yesterday I went to Mac and told the girl my problem and she gave me this cream to powder stuff to put on under my liner...again, no luck. I am SOOO lost! I was thinking maybe it was my eye cream, so I stopped using it and only used my concealer. Still a problem. Also, this is the 3rd concealer I've switched to thinking that it was always part of the problem. Same with my eye cream! I've switched that three times also! Anyway, I am in the process of looking for a job (interviewing) and I'm having a graduation party for myself (first party EVER in my life) and I'd like to find an eyeliner that will STAY PUT on my eyes. I don't want to be on an interview or at my own party worrying about if I look like I was beat up because I have a black eye! Any suggestions? Help!
