Amazon.com: Kryolan Cake Eye Liner Sealer .5 fl. oz. Makeup 5322: Everything Else

Kryolan sealant and cake. You can use the sealant with mineral powder and eyeshadows too that are made to be applied wet or dry. (test a small area before wetting the makeup cake too much)

I like sealant and a brush. Its very thin, smooth and not too much shine.

Depending on what you like and how you wear it would determine your brush choice. I use something like this:

Coastal Scents: Destiny Precision Angled Liner Brush (http://www.coastalscents.com/cfwebstore/index.cfm/product/2179_37/destiny-precision-angled-liner-brush.cfm - broken link)

(they have cheap mineral samples on that site too if you wanted to pick up a couple inexpensive mineral liners to play with if you get that brush)

I don't do liquid, but I have good luck with felt-tip eyeliner markers for the same effect with better control.

Um, its been years since I last tried liquid liner and didnt like it then, either. Always seems to flake and come off.
My preference is the soft pencil. And for a dollar, it does very well.
Even though Im a brunette, still dont wear black, it makes a person too much emphasiziing on the eyes, and no need. Dark brown works well for me.

I like the MAC gel liners, used with their Paint as a primer the liner applied with a chisel-point brush. I have greasy eyelids, and this combo is the only one I've tried that stays in place. (I have not tried the Krayalon combo). MAC also has several very dark but not black gels that give a similar effect as a black eyeliner but not quite so stark - although you'd still think it was black from a few feet away -- so it's better for gals who are over 30 or have started getting wrinkles around their eyes.

I've always liked liquid eyeliner and I don't care whether it's in fashion or not. Used to have a hell of time finding a decent one after another is discontinued in the past, but ever since I discovered this eyeliner, I haven't strayed and I can only hope it doesn't disappear like just about anything you like!

Beauty tip: L

I don't know why this reviewer says it's waterproof, though... It's not.

As a fair person with lighter hair (anywhere from ash blonde to light brown), I don't really ever wear black eyeliner...too harsh and stark. I do wear brown or brownish black, though. I don't typically do colors, though, unless it's for a costume.

The felt-tip eyeliners are ideal for me, because they're, as mentioned earlier, less difficult to control than straight up liquid, and less smudge-ish than pencil.

Im a faithful black liquid eyeliner user too..my fav is the Metallic Black Eyebrightener liner by Physicians Formula. It will give you a little shimmer effect too. Its a decent price and can be found pretty much anywhere...Target, Walmart, Walgreens.

I like Sephora's Doe Eyed Liner. Lots of colors, and easy to apply. Sephora: SEPHORA COLLECTION Doe Eyed Felt Eyeliner: Eyeliner

I have been using khaki green actually it is a really soft look. (I have dark hair/eyes/african american.) The black is great too, I have that as well.
