This forum was excellent when chosing a new foundation, so I need help again, please!

What's the best for smudgey khol eyeliner? I used to use Bourjois but that type I used is now discontinued. What's the best alternative?

I use a liquid eyeliner and then black eye powder to blend.

soap & glory do a great kohl eyeliner that is very soft and easy to apply great for smudging with a brush or cotton bud it blends nicely
smoulder kohl its called its not very expensive and found it to be one of the best i have used over the years

Try MUA intense colour eyeliner for £1 - goes on great and smudges well. I'd also go over it with some black shadow too.

Had to laugh when I read this. surprise SMUDGY EYELINER

Bought a new liquid black khol eyeliner pen for my recent Gypsy Woman shoot and boy did it smudge!

NOT intentionally. so I was kinda in a panic... Good job that the gypsy eyes look had to have dramatic, darker makeup than usual, because I was tossing up whether to wipe all my make-up off and start again, or do a repair job...in end did the latter as didn't have much time before photographer  picked me up at 8.15am... and I used pencil eyeliner over the liquid eyeliner which set it better and the day was saved...learnt my lesson, never try out new makeup for a shoot, always do a 'test' first....

Would think after 30 plus years in the business should have learnt... but then liquid eyeliner pens are pretty much a new innovation...in the good ol' days it was a paint job with block eyeliner mixed with water and a brush to paint on, like an artist...or instead of water, some models used 'spit'...mmmm


Oh well....Hope the OP found what she was looking for...

I agree with the MUA eyeliner or fashionista both budget prices and smudge well, also benefit's bad gal is super smudgey but more pricey. I also set with black eye shadow once it is smudged how I want it so it doesn't carry on smearing with the heat from your skin and moisture from eyes hope this helps xx

What do you mean, set with black eyeshadow?

Smudgy, pencil eyeliner tends to smear down your face with heat, sweat, weather etc which can give you bad racoon eyes. Putting a light layer of shadow on top of the liner will stop it smearing/fading etc.
