Collection Fast Stroke Liner in Black Waterproof, Market Stall Silver Liquid Liner, Urban Decay 24/7 in Perversion, Rimmel Scandaleyes in 001 Black, Benefit BADgal Liner in Espresso

I recently threw away my gel liner in favour of a pen and, well, the return of liquid liner.
It's easier for one, and co operates with laziness - I can never be bothered to clean my gel liner brushes!

But I hit a snag. Gel liner can last for a long time in the pot, whilst liquid and pen liners run out quickly. If pen liners do work, they only begin to work on one side and not the very nib, which is what I use to create winged liner. My liquid liner crumbles easily, ruining the effect.

So what do I do? Should I splurge on a more expensive liner just for it to run out? Go to the old age pencil liner? Or do I wait? On the plus side, my favourite pencil liners are completely waterproof, I find myself having to use different types of makeup remover just to get the remnants from my eyes! But it's not an ideal solution.

Benefit are due to release their new eyeliner in June at the price of £18.50. Looks super easy right? It is going to be in the 'They're Real' range and I can't wait to have a play with one! The hashtag for this product is #criminallyeasy, and I really do hope this product lives up to the promise of being easy - the insiders of Elle seem to think so!

But remember, with all liner styles, practice makes perfect!
