The Pencil Liner Showdown....

Urban Decay's 24/7 liner in Zero
Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes 0L
Milani Liquif'Eye 01 Black

A picture is worth a thousand words....

The picture is a bit washed out.... but in life the Milani one is the darkest out of the three.

Color Payoff
1. Milani
2. Urban Decay

I do not like to smudge my liner and I do not want my liner to smudge. However I understand there is no such thing as a smudge proof liner. Out of the three the Milani was the most forgiving.... even when smudged the residue under my eye was the lightest with urban decay being the worst and fastest to run.

Smudge and Run:
1. Milani
3. Urban Decay

As for staying power the milani lasted almost 6 hours with little fading and MUFE approximately 4-5 hours and the Urban Decay 3 hours. (on my upper waterline)

Staying Power:
1. Milani
3. Urban Decay

All three liners are very smooth and almost resemble a kohl liner. However they require frequent sharpening.

Difference is minuscule.

1. Milani $7-9
2. MUFE $17
3. Urban Decay $17

Over all I love the Milani the most. I am very surprised it beat the higher end liners. Although I am still weary, unless I find a better liner I will repurchase the Milani liner. Although I have plenty of pencils to get through....
