After testing out the eyeliners, I decided to see which of my cream eyeshadows will last the longest. Note that I did NOT apply primer under these.
Elf Cream Eyeshadow ($3) in Bronzed
Elf All Over Color Stick ($1) in Persimmon
Tarte emphasEyes Cream Eyeshadow ($22) in Shimmering Taupe
Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow ($7) in Bad to the Bronze
Maybelline Eye Studio Cream Eyeshadow Trio ($12) in Rose Revolution
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil ($4.50) in Iced Mocha
Almay Cream Eyeshadow Stick ($8) in Hazel Eyes
Urban Decay 24/7 Shadow Pencil ($20 but mine’s a mini) in Juju
Wet n Wild Idol Eyes ($2) in Pixie
Tarte SmolderEyes ($22) in Fig (yes it’s more of a eyeliner, but I’ll include it here anyways, as it could really be used as both because of the thick tip)
Before and after 6 hours
I think the Tarte and Urban Decay ones did the best, which I guess makes sense since they are the most expensive.
So I decided to test out some different brands/types of pencil eyeliners to see which ones would last the longest. Most of them are brown, but I have two blue ones too, since I don’t have those in brown.
Wet n’ wild color icon ($1) in Dark Brown
NYX slide on glide on eyeliner ($8) in Brown Perfection
Jordana EasyLiner ($2) in Coffee Bean
Physician’s Formula Shimmer Strips eyeliner ($11 for trio) from Brown Eyes
BareMinerals Big & Bright Eyeliner ($18) in Midnight
NYX Retractable Eyeliner ($4.50) in Aqua Green
The two NYX ones and the Physicians Formula one are definitely the most creamy eyeliners. The others are a bit drier.
Before and After 6.5 hours
The NYX slide on glide on and the Physician’s Formula ones seem to have lasted the best. Which is a bit weird to me, since when I use the Physicians Formula one on my waterline it seems to disappear after about 1 hour.
