We get this question a lot, can I use eyeliner? and if so which ones? We’ve got the answers for you Boo. Let’s start with the eyeliner that is a NO NO hands down no exceptions – waterproof liquid liner. Usually it goes on with a felt tip or a tiny brush, this stuff is oil based and will eat the bond of the extension and they will start dropping like flies. Breaking your little Lash Addict heart every time you see another extension bite the dust.
So, now we’ve cleared that up…what can be used? Shadow as a liner is the best option, put on with an angle brush – there is no risk to the extension. We all know however that shadow as liner sucks, lasts a few hours if you’re lucky and doesn’t have impact. Enter these 2 winners:
Milani’s Liquid Eye is thumbs up winner for application with extensions, it’s a wax based pencil that goes on like a soft liner but once set (about 30 secs) it looks and behaves like liquid liner. The budget friendly price ( under $10) is also sweet, it can be purchased at Walmart and comes in 7 colours. It doesn’t last all day if you’re moving and shaking but after a quick touch up, you’ll be good to go again.
Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil is the BOMB when it comes to use with eyelash extensions. A gel based product is glides on like a dream and after it sets (about 20 secs) it looks like liquid liner, it can also be used in the water line. This stuff does not budge once it’s been set, it can go all day and performs well under extreme conditions (wink wink). It’s deeply pigmented so a little goes a long way, this liner isn’t as soft as Milani’s liner so it’s easier to sharpen and conserve the pencil. All this awesome comes at a price $24 (yikes!) , comes in tons of colours and can be purchased at Sephora.
