Top 5 Mondays: Liquid Eyeliner

Hi lovelies,

So I wanted to do a regular weekly feature post on my blog and I figured I'd begin by doing a weekly top 5 of various products, this will be anything beauty related from eyeliners to polishes.

This week I'm starting with liquid eyeliners, something I use everyday and have so many of and I thought I'd share my top five with you:

1. L'Oreal Super Liner in Carbon Gloss

This is my all time favourite liner, I own it in the colours: Carbon Gloss and Black Crystals I like the product that much. I love the felt applicator that comes with this, it makes applying the eyeliner ever so easy.

Literally only takes me two minutes to apply when using this eyeliner, however my only little problem with this is that it's not waterproof and can smudge quite easily. This is sometimes not a problem if you make a mistake, means you can quickly take it off and re-apply.

My HG of drugstore liquid eyeliners, and a great product for eyeliner beginners.

This comes in at £6.49

2. Collection 2000 Extreme 24hour Felt Tip Liner

I heard about this from the lovely Charlotte over at Beautyramblings, and this is a lovely product to use and really cheap (which is an added bonus). The felt tip applicator again make this product really easy to apply, and when going for the winged look this product makes the process very easy.

I find when applying this it's like using a pen so it's easier then other products, the staying power for this is great and I would say this is waterproof as I find the staying power is a bit better than the L'Oreal liner.

This is a bargain price of £2.99

3. Rimmel Exaggerate Eyeliner

This is a product I used when I was younger and wasn't a fan of, but recently I used this again and love the product. The wand is great for applying small lines, something I've found other liners don't allow easily.

I think they've changed the wand since the last time I used it, and I prefer the new wand, it makes applying the liner easier. The staying power is great, I just don't think this product is waterproof as it smudges easily.

However that doesn't bother me too much as this is a lovely product and very cheap. Again it's easy to remove so if you make a mistake you can quickly wipe it off and start over again.

It's priced at £3.79

4. Barry M Wink Marker Pen

This is a product I hated when I first got it, but after using it a few times it has become one of my favourites. This looks like a felt tip pen which again makes applying it a doddle, and I've found this product is probably my favourite when creating a 'wink'.

However the staying powder isn't great I would recommend using a primer as it does wear easily. But if you have applied a primer or shadow on your eye I find the product so black it looks great. I was a bit worried the tip would be a little thick but you can use it to apply thin and thick lines.

The other thing I like about this is the matte finish it gives as some of the liners give quite glossy finishes which is great when applying with eye shadows but sometimes you just want pure matte black and this gives that.

This comes in at £4.59

5. Barry M Liquid Eyeliner

Lastly I've chosen Barry M's liquid eyeliner, this is another product I've used since I was around 14/15 and I love it. This again makes applying your eyeliner really easy and the staying power of this is great. This however is not waterproof so if you do cry you'll look like a panda.

I love the colour choices available with this product, I don't think I know of another liner with so many choices. The pigmentation of this is also great, a lovely matte black which is something in a liner I love.

This product allows you to apply your liner really easily and smoothly as I find with some liners when creating a line it is not always straight but with this I find my line is always dead straight.

This comes in at £4.79

Here are swatches of all products mentioned:
