  • I like liquid because I have bad allergies and my eyes are always watery. If I use a pencil it always smudges, so I use liquid and then go over it with black eyeshadow because I don't like it shiney lol.

  • I use Maybeline eye liner- it's not really a pencil, it's smoother & goes on easier. It also turns & goes back down inside (like lipstick)

  • I really like the gel eyeliners. They feel more like pencil, but look more like liquid.

  • I actually use black eyeshadow and a drop of water with a really tiny brush most of the time

  • Pencil. I've never had a steady enough hand for the liquid, but I prefer the look of it.

  • I've always wished I could do eyeliner but I can't. I am blind in my left eye. I can see to apply to my left..but not my right.. Everyone I know though prefers the liquid.

  • @ charlot... I do the same but you should use a drop of visine or other eye drops its sterile. My liner brush is studio gear # 29, it was 18.00 like 10 yrs ago. Great buy. I will also brush it across an eyeliner pencil an run it across my lash line for a more pigmented look.  The brush gets into the lashes nicely for a better blend.
