White Eye Liners

So now that it is the end of SS07 (where did my summer go?), I finally got around to testing out the white eye liners on the market, following the white eye liner trend this season. And judging from the recent catwalk shows, I'd say that finding a good one would be a good long term investment.
First I tried the white Mac eye liner, since I loved the black one so much. The effect was... not that impressive. The thing with white is that it doesn't go on as easily and smoothly as black does, but then you don't want to apply it too thickly either, because the effect is supposed to be more subtle. Least thats what I'm looking for....and even if you do manage to apply it thinly and well, for me the white always washes after a while.
But then, I tried the YSL long lasting eye pencil in white at the counter just for fun while I was trying out the Touche Eclat- which incidentally is amazing- and whoa. I was blown away by how smooth it went on and after wearing it for a day, how long lasting it actually is! I seriously wore it for a whole day and when I went to "retouch" it before dinner, I was surprised that I didn't need to! The only problem I have with this one is that it is so white that it applies on almost silver, so makes it more nighttime-ish.
For a more natural look, my friend has found the key. She uses a creamy white eye liner part of a duo from Shiseido. It applies smoothly and the creamy white color is very subtle but still very nicely opens up her eyes- perfect for day time! I can't wait to get one of my own next time I pass by the counter!

White eyeliner is such a wonderful tool! Not only did it flood the runways for fashion week, just using a little bit on your bottom eyelid can make your eyes look bigger and brighter, and the effect just doubles if you use a good mascara and shadow.

Thanks so much for posting your trial-and-error with the different brands; in my experience, eyeliner is the hardest thing to take the time to shop for a decent one, so I always just end up with a cheesy, inexpensive brand, and regretting it.

i wear the cheap 'wet n wild' white eyeliner, but i have to re-apply it half way through the day because it does rub off. the up side is that it does go on easily, though, so i'm in all happy with it :)

I love putting white eye liner on the inside of my upper eyelids, and then black on the outside, so that it looks like a fading effect.

Clinique's Cream Shaper for Eyes in "Frosty" is wonderful! I use it on the inner corners of my eyes and it creates a brightening, youthful, dewy-eyed effect that also widens your eyes. Because it's creamy instead of powdery it doesn't get clumpy, and you only need to use a little to get that beautiful wide-eyed effect. It also lasts all day and night, so it's worth every penny!

Thank you for the wonderful effort

إني تذكـرت والذكرى مؤرقـة *مجـداً تلـيدا بأيـدينا أضعـناه

أنَّى اتجهتَ للإسـلام في بـلـدٍ * تجْده كالطيرِ مقصـوصًا جناحـاه

كـم صرفتنا يـدٌ كنـا نـصرفها * وبات يـملكنا شعب مـلكناه

بالله سل خلف بحر الروم عن عرب * بالأمس كانوا هنا واليوم قد تاهوا

وانزل دمشق وسائل صخر مسجدها * عمن بناه لعل الـصخر ينعـاه

هذى معـالم خرس كـل واحـدة * منهن قامت خطيبـا فاغرا فـاه

الله يعلم ما قلبت سـيرتهم يومـا * وأخطـأ دمـع الـعين مـجراه

يا من يرى عمـراتكسوه بردته * الزيت أدمٌ لـه والكـوخ مـأواه

يهتز كسـرى على كرسيه فرقـا * من خوفه ، وملوك الروم تخشـاه

يا رب فابعث لنا من مثلهم نفـرا * يشـيدون لـنا مـجدا أضعنـاه
