A Subtle-Looking Liner that Stays


I was asked a couple of times on Instagram #AskAMW on my pencil recommendations that would keep your eyes looking wide without looking like a wide-eyed Panda.

I can totally relate.  We live in a humid weather country and using just eye pencil for the eyes is almost impossible (spoken by a liquid and gel liner lover!)

But there will be days I"m too lazy to wing my liner just because I'm just sending my son to school, as much as I would love to just leave my eyes as is, it looks puffy and "tired" without liner so I always opt for a liner pencil.  

One of my favorite brand is Make Up For Ever and I also have another one from Estee Lauder if I wanted a pencil that can be "smudged" and sets like a tattoo.

 A long wearing eyeliner to shape the eyes. Gives precise line and stay-put color for 24 hours. Creamy texture and smoothly glides on. Delivers different makeup effects from a simple line to a sultry smoky eye. Smudge free and resistant to water, sweat, heat and humidity. Features a soft smudge tip and built-in sharpener.

The Estee Lauder Double Wear Waterproof eyeliner pencil comes with retractable pencil on one side and a smudger tip on the other side.  I was using this for a good 1 month before realizing it comes with a sharpener.  The sharpener is actually vital if you want to create a define line.  Just pull the smudger tip and the sharpener is happily hidden there.

Shade: Kohl Noir
The pencil comes with a LOT of shades!  I love it when companies create different types of Blacks, Browns and Grays because I love those shades in lining my eyes.

The pencil gives precise line (when sharpened) and you have to smudge immediately after application.  You don't need to smudge it if you wanted a more defined line but I find it is extremely challenging and difficult to create a perfect defined line with the use of eyeliner pencil no matter how smooth, soft and pigmented they are.

I like it that I can apply a thicker line and smudge it higher and I'll get a sultry eye makeup look without the use of eyeshadow.

And yes, this, when set properly is smudge-free, smear-proof and water resistant!
