Best Pencil Eyeliners for Sensitive Eyes
As someone with sensitive skin, eyes, and who knows what else, I’m always hesitant to term something as the best whatever for sensitive needs. While a lot of us have “sensitive skin,” we don’t all have the same issues. What works for me may not work for you. With that said, however, my mom, my sister, and I have each tested these eyeliners. And all of us (including my mom’s hyper-sensitive eyes) like these eyeliners. So with only a little hesitation will I term MAC Pro Longwear and Powerpoint the best pencil eyeliners for all eyes, including sensitive eyes.
I’ve used them since I was 16, so it’s been a long-standing formula that works for me. Not to mention, I just love HOW EASY THEY ARE TO APPLY! One of the difficult things about pencil eyeliners is that they tend to be dry and painful to apply short of digging a trench in your eyeball. And since we know I wouldn’t be able to handle anything as complicated as gel eyeliner, the choices are a bit limited…
Best Black Pencil Eyeliner
Finding a good black pencil eyeliner that can give you super precision without the stress is hard. But it’s easy with the “engraved” pencil. All you need to do is make sure it’s sharpened well before applying (as is the case with all good eyeliners). They do have a twist up pencil that gives you the fine tip. I prefer the pencils you sharpen since they’re less expensive and last so much longer!
My Top 5 MAC Pencil Eyeliner Shades
I have green eyes, so in addition to the standard black, I usually opt for anything with blues, greens, or purples. And since you can bet your life that I’m not one to wear bright version of any of these, I LOVE their great darker shades of these complementary hues.
• Engraved (black)
• Stubborn Brown (dark coffee brown)
• Night Trail (dark blue)
• Devotion (dark green)
• Strong Willed (dark purple)
