If there is a makeup equivalent to the little black dress (LBD, for short), it's got to be the little black eye pencil--or, as I like to call it, the LBEP. You can use it to draw thin or thick lines, smudge it or pair it with a dressy shimmery shadow. Think of an occasion and there's a look you can pull off with your LBEP that's just perfect for it. Which is why I'm addicted to trying new ones. So I want to know: What's your favorite black eyeliner? (Or do you use colorful eyeliner like this Glamour girl?)
It's a big question, I know. I can't even pick just one myself. In fact, here are the pencils I currently have in rotation:
Clinique Khol Shaper for Eyes: Glides on super smoothly without even a little tugging on your lids.
Wet N Wild Kohl Brow/Eyeliner Pencil: Perfect for when you smoldering effect since it smudges well without traveling all over your face. But my favorite part is that it only costs about a buck!
Maybelline Define-A-Line Eyeliner in Soft Black: The thin, sleek point makes for the most precise line ever.
MAC Pearl Gilde Eyeliner: This stuff is like instant wow for your eyes thanks to all that rich pigment and shiny patent-leather finish.
Physician's Formula Flat Automatic Eye Definer: The flat tip makes this one the pick for those nights when I want a really thick, intense line.
Now it's your turn: What's your favorite LBEP? Do you have different liners for different looks? Ever try one that left you disappointed?
