Awarded Elle’s “Genius Award”, In Style’s “Best Beauty Buy” and Allure’s “Reader’s Choice Award” in 2008, Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Eyeliner comes in 16 beautiful colors so you are bound to find one you like.

I have Black Mauve Shimmer Ink from the Fall 2008 Mauve Collection, which is a very pretty dark taupe with micro-shimmer and a great substitute to your regular black and brown.

The next goodie to review from the Total Beauty Blog Summit is Redpoint StayPut Eyeliner with Sharpener ($21).

I have this in Conga, a metallic dark brown color (think MAC Coco Beach pigment) and it just makes my brown eyes pop! It is highly pigmented, very soft and it glides onto the skin without tugging, making application oh-so-effortless! It also contains an “anti-aging TriPeptide complex to help your eye area appear firmer, smoother and more hydrated”. And the best part? It is *super* long-wearing, in fact the most long-wearing out of all the pencil liners I have ever used. I apply this in the morning with a few coats of mascara and it stays put for over 12 hours without smudging the slightest bit – now that is definitely something! Plus it comes with a built-in smudger and a sharpener. What more can you ask for? I think I have finally found my HG pencil eyeliner!

Boy am I in love with the latest, limited edition Revlon’s Bedroom Eyes Powder Liner ($10)! With this baby, all I need to do is draw a line along my lash line then smudge with a q-tip or MAC #252 brush and I get the perfect smoky eyes. Talk about fast and easy!

There are a total of 6 gorgeous rich colors available and they are all great for the smoky look. I have Fishnet Jet, which is a charcoal black. The color is very pigmented and a little goes a looooong way. The product also goes on really creamy but since it is powder, application can get a little messy and you do get fallouts. I would suggest applying a generous layer of loose powder under your eye to catch any fallouts and tapping the applicator to remove excess before you apply the product. Alternatively, do your foundation and concealer after you use this. Also, this is NOT the product to use to create a fine line – use a liquid eyeliner for that instead. The sponge tip applicator is simply too big for precise application but if you are going for smudgy eyes, this is definitely it.
