Guest Post: The Best Felt Tip Eyeliner

Todays post is by the always gorgeous Urban Butterfly


I have been on the hunt lately for a good quality felt tip eyeliner. I mostly wear my eyeliner in a cat eye or flicked out at the end, so a small fluid tip is ideal. Here's are my recent buys -


Collection 2000 Extreme Liner

I had never seen this until stumbling upon a review online which pushed me to hunt it down, and hunt was the word, everywhere I went it was out of stock. At first I quite liked it; the colour is quite strong and the tip sturdy for that sharp flick. After a few uses I noticed the colour was getting a bit washed out but for £2.99 you can’t really complain too much. UB rating 3/5


L’Oreal Super Liner Carbon Gloss


This is another bloggers favourite. This has a very good solid colour and goes on quite wet, however I found when touching up the line, the brush would pick up the colour leaving a bald/uneven line. The felt tip is a great size and shape for a nice sharp line. Sadly I also found that if I rubbed my eye a whole section would peel off. UB rating 3/5


Max Factor Glide and Define

Housed in a cute miniature, much like a little stubby pen; it’s great to sneak in your handbag if you want to touch up or dramatise your makeup while you’re out. I found the tip too pliable so I couldn’t get a precise line let alone a sharp finish. It’s also very watery so I had to keep trying to go back over the line to get a good solid black colour. UB rating 2/5


MAC Superslick Liquid Eyeliner

After getting quite disheartened with the above liners I took myself off to MAC. This is in a nice light pen with a long soft tip. Has a great solid colour that goes on very wet so a steady hand is required. I got a wonderful strong cat-like flick from this. The only issue I have is that the colour is so strong it’s quite full on for day time but ideal for nights out or when I want an intense eyes. UB rating 4/5


Barbara Daly Eye define

I found this by sheer chance whilst in Tesco and browsing the makeup. It comes in a nice long pen style with a solid felt tip. The colour pay off is fantastic, yet not too harsh for daytime. It’s very easy to use even if you want a nice thin line. I have raved about this to all my friends and loved it so much I went back to buy it in brown which is also fabulous. All in all my best buy by far and it was only just over five pounds! UB rating 5/5
