Line Me in Black.

I had a pretty crazy and action packed weekend in which I am still trying to catch up on my sleep. In the midst of the running around, partying, laughing, and just being silly I lost my eyeliner. I know, no big deal but eyeliner is one of the few things I feel that I must wear everyday along with filling in my eyebrows.

I have been using Makeup Forever's Aqua Eyes liner for the past year or so. It really has some great staying power, but the only thing I didn't like is that when I would sharpen it, it didn't have a nice fine point. Not sure if it the sharpener I use or if the liner is just that way. If you don't care about having a fine point this eyeliner works great.

So I have been going a few days without eyeliner because I haven't decided what I wanted to try next. This will be my everyday liner so I prefer a pencil because it is easier to apply. I love Smashbox creme liner for weekends, but that isn't so easy to apply in a moving car. I was just browsing Sephora's website and saw this:

I am currently using the Buxom Mascara and loving it. This eyeliner supposedly is self sharpening. Hmm who knows.

Anyone have good suggestions for a pencil eyeliner? It can be drugstore brand or something from Sephora. I'm just looking for something that is a bang for the buck and under $20.

P.S. I made the hair chop, but that will have to be on another post :)

I wish I could actually figure out how to use eye liner. Ah ha. Shadow and mascara is as far as I go.

I just posted about the one i just bought - it's from PurMinerals. $16 at Ulta. I was using a smudgy Revlon one before but it was TOO smudgy and would wipe right off outside. This PurMinerals one lasts pretty good from what i can tell so far...since saturday.

hmmm..I use benefits badgal waterproof liner...it does need to be sharpened. Chanel's has self sharpening as well, but I can't get the point as small
