Top 6 Creamy Eyeliner Pencils

Best_creamy_eye_liner

I'm such a fan of eyeliner and I'm never without a winged eye when wearing makeup. But I realised I hardly ever talk about eyeliners of any form on Makeup Savvy! Which is why I thought I'd dedicate a whole post to my favourite kind of eyeliners - creamy pencil liners.

What is it about creamy eyeliners? Well I love pencil eyeliner in general, they are so easy to use, great at filling in the lash line (for full looking eye lashes) and last well on the eyes. But what creamy eyeliners have is a-mazingg staying power, better pigment and the option of being smudged out.

I have over 30 creamy eye liners now (I'm not sure why) but here I have selected just 6 which are my total favourites that tick all the boxes...

Top to Bottom - Natio Smooth Eye Liner 'Brown', Sleek Eau La La Liner 'Noir', Avon Super Shock Gel Eye Liner 'Golden Fawn', Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil 'Whiskey', bare Minerals Waterproof Eyeliner '3 AM',
Kiko Twinkle Eye Pencil 'Flexuous Burgundy'


 The Top 6

Natio Smooth Eye Liner 'Brown' (£3.40 - Tesco here) Creamy brown eyeliners aren't that common especially under £10 so this is a great one. I love a creamy brown liner for the day that I can wear slightly winged on my top lash line and the smallest amount smoked out on the bottom. This is so pigmented and creamy. Not the best staying power as it's so creamy but still amazing for the price.

Sleek Eau La La Liner 'Noir' (£4.99 - Superdrug here) This reminds me of a Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Waterproof Eye Pencil without the price tag! Super pigmented, totally matte black, amazing lasting power and perfect for a smokey eye. I couldn't love this more... *note to self - try more shades in this range*

Avon Super Shock Gel Eye Liner 'Golden Fawn' (£2.99 - eBay here) My swatch above just doesn't do this justice! This is an amazing shimmery champagne shade that looks perfect of the bottom lash line or all over the lid, either alone or with a shimmer brown shade blended into the crease. The quality of all the eyeliners in the Super Shock Gel Eye Liner range are impressive but this is the stand out shade for me. 

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil 'Whiskey' (£15.00 - Beauty Bay here) Another everyday brown eyeliner that is slightly lighter in tone than the Natio liner (above). As with all the 24/7 eyeliners from Urban Decay this stays all day with great pigmentation.  One I love to wear blend out with an angled eyeliner brush for a daytime smokey eye.

bare Minerals Waterproof Eyeliner '3 AM' (£13.00 - bareMinerals) A unique black creamy liner with gold glitter running through it. Perfect for a more dramatic night time eye that's still subtle. Sadly this was limited edition so hard to get hold of now!

Kiko Twinkle Eye Pencil 'Flexuous Burgundy' (£6.90 - Kiko) Probably the most unique eyeliner I own - a warm brown with pink glitter running through it... see I said it was unique! What I love about this liner is that the magenta glitter just works and makes the eyes really stand out. Not the best staying power but will last the night. Perfect if you want a more subtle/less dramatic smokey eye.

How they last... 

 As you can see the eyeliner with the best staying power after being vigorously rubbed with makeup remover is the Sleek Eau La La Liner, which is impressive for only £4.99. After that the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Eye Liner and then the bareMineral Waterproof Eye Liner. The liner with the least staying power is the Natio Creamy Liner which I always set with a matte brown eyeshadow now to correct this. Also as you can see the Avon Gel Liner does stay well but glitter is left behind, but I have personally found it to last all day on the eyes. 

As for my ultimate favourite creamy eye liner - I just couldn't say! Each eyeliner here I love and use for different looks but I think the most impressive out of the 6 has to be the Sleek Eau La La Liner... such a good dupe for the UD 24/7 Glide-on Eye Liners. 

Do you love creamy eyeliners? If so, let me know your favourites!
