Need recs for a DARK eyeliner

I'm looking for a pencil eyeliner that gives a rich, dark, intense color. I'm tired of these cheap, hard, waxy Crayola crayon like pencils that barely leave a mark behind. And I don't want to have to pull and stretch my eyelid and press super hard to get the pencil to deposit some color.

I have liquid liners and I like those for truly dramatic, dark payoff. But i'm looking for something one step softer in a pencil (but still very vibrant). I mean, there are just some times when I don't want to wear a liquid liner.

I'm willing to spend $15 per pencil...but cheaper is even better.

i get good results from Bonne Bell - Midnight Bark is a fabulous dark brown.

have you tried MAC's Eye Kohl? i've been using Teddy for years and i also have Blooz.

My HG eyeliner is MAC fluidline. It is a cream (gel?) that comes in a small pot that you apply with a brush. A little goes a long way and because it is creamy, you can apply it very easily and smoothly.

I've been using this for several years and love it in Blacktrack for a more dramatic eyes. The little jars last forever, even applying it daily. I also love not having to foll around with a sharpener and getting the point just right!!

It runs about 14-15 dollars and lasts me a year or more. I also like it in the dark brown shade too.

Yay! I might try both the Bonne Bell and the MAC Fluidline. Right now I have the MAC liquid liner, which I love. And I've been checking out the MAC site to get other eyeliner ideas. I usually wear dark brown. I can't handle true black liner w/ my coloring.

Solange, Is it a pain to have to have a separate eyeliner application brush? Dos it need to be washed and degunked a lot? What brush do you have? Something from MAC?

Like most MAC products, the Fluidline is very concentrated so I use only a tiny amount to line my eyes. I clean my brushes as needed with eyemakeup remover.

I must say that after using Fluidline, I really hate the notion of using eye pencils!!

i use the MAC 266 angle brush for lining with shadow. this brush is recommended for use with Fluidline. i wash it after every use and i've had mine for 7 years and it's like new.

eta - i am devoted to using shadow and pencils for lining because i find that i get the exact colours i want and most cream and liquid liners don't come in such a wide range of colours.

I highly recommend Cover Girl perfect point. It is one of those 'pencils' that you twist to have more product come up. It goes on easily and lasts all day. Actually, I don't use eye make up remover and I can usually still see it the next morning. It makes a nice size line and has a 'smudge' point on the other end in case you want to smudge the line out to the wider.

This is the only eye liner I have used for the past 7 or 8 years...and it is only about $5.
