burgundyliners

I love burgundy or wine eyeliners for hazel, green, and brown eyes. I have blue eyes and still really love them but I do have to watch out for the undertones in the wine shade or I will look like I have wine-o eyes. When paired with a pale, nude lip, it is a sexy look. Here is a guide to a few burgundy liners ranging in formulas and in prices.

Budget Burgundy Liners (Under $12): Rimmel Special Eyes Precision Eye Liner Pencil in Burgundy is a wooden pencil liner in a burgundy shade. The color is pretty but I found the formula a bit waxy and that I had to use the body heat from my finger tips to soften it. It retails for about $3.50. Sephora Long Lasting Metallic Eyeliner in Aubergine (not pictured) is a long wearing metallic burgundy plum that goes for $10. mark Eyemarker Color On Line in Wine (not pictured) is a retractable and smooth wearing wine/burgundy shade that goes for about $5.50. It is my favorite out of the budget list.

More Expensive Burgundy Liners: L’Oreal Hip Kohl Liner in Burgundy is a deep burgundy shimmer powder. I really like this formula since it reminds me of Guerlain Kohl eye liner but much cheaper and in a wider variety of colors. It retails for about $13 and can be used as a shadow as well. It will create a beautiful merlot smoky eye. Bare Escentuals bareMinerals Eye Liner in Now (not pictured) is a plum burgundy mineral powder liner. It retails for $13. It is a beautiful color and the formula provides a softer, more natural finish. Kat Von D Autograph Eyeliner in Turbo Lover is a liquid liner with a plummy wine base that is warmed by bronze sparkles. This color really works well with blue eyes because the warm undertones make the eyes really pop. It retails for $16. Yves Saint Laurent Dessin du Regard Haute Tenue Long Lasting Eye Pencil in Shimmering Burgundy (not pictured) is a deep burgundy in a soft easy to use pencil. It retails for $28. Laura Mercier Liquid Eye Liner in Bordeaux is a long wearing metallic liner that goes for $22. DuWop Smoke in Plum Wine contains a burgundy cake eyeliner and a deep purple shadow to create a sexy smoky eye. It retails for $28. Make Up For Ever Flash Color in Wine (not pictured) is a highly pigmented cream that can be used a liner. Wine is a red-ish shade so watch if you have too much red in the whites of your eyes. You could end up looking monstrous. It goes for $18. MAC has a few burgundy liners. I like Liquidlast Liner in Powerplum because it is a purpley plum with red shimmer in a liquid form. I love the addition of the shimmer. It goes for $16.50. The other one is the versatile Technakohl Liner in Purple Dash which is a reddish aubergine that goes for $14.50 (both aren’t pictured).

Sometimes I get hung up on finding a product. I’m still searching for the perfect deep, matte purple full-coverage lipstick and a perfect yellow shimmer eyeshadow that doesn’t come across as gold. The other day it was silver eyeliner. Luckily, there are many options out there. I love silver eyeliner when it is used to “open” up the eyes (pencil formulas). I also love it as the “first” layer with a thinner stripe of black liquid liner applied below it. I love silver with deep, dramatic lips. Here is what I came across as I went “shopping”.

Cheaper (under $10): Avon’s mark Metalliner Hook Up Eye Glam in Quick Silver is a liquid silver eyeliner. It’s cheap and is nice if you only occasionally want a silver eyeliner like for a night out. I found that it only wore for about a work day (8 hours) and then flaked really, really bad. It retails for $5.50. NYX has a Liquid Liner in Silver that goes for $5. There is also a NYX Longwearing Eye Pencil in Silver that goes for $2. It’s a very nice pencil for the price. Sephora brand has a Nano Eyeliner in Precious Silver for $5 (not pictured). It’s a smaller pencil but not a bad formula. And Sephora Brand has a liquid, foiled silver liner, Long Lasting Metallic Eyeliner in Silver. It goes for $10 and has that classic liquid liner felt tip. Another cheaper liquid liner option is Boots Stay Perfect Eye Liner in Star for about $9 (not pictured). L’Oreal Hip Color Chrome Eyeliner in Silver Lighting is a nice Urban Decay substitute. It goes for $10. Manic Panic Metallic Eyeliner in Silver Stardust is a silver pencil liner for under $9.

More Expensive: Diane Brill Eye Jewelry Liquid Eyeliner Lace Diamonds is a shimmery, long wearing formula with a fine brush. It retails for $24. Shu Uemura has 2 great silver eyeliners in different formulas. There is the Painting Liner in Silver. This is a long wearing waterproof formula. What I like about it is that you get to use your favorite liner brush and you can use this as a shadow if you apply it with a shadow brush or fingertips. It goes for $24. If you prefer a super smooth pencil there is Drawing Pencil in ME Silver 06 that retails for $19. There is Prescriptives Moonbeam Reflective Eyeliner in Beaming Silver for $17.50 (not pictured). I love Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil formula and there just so happens to be a silver called Dime for $17 (not pictured). Another one in the same price point and similiar long-wearing formula is Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes in Silver for $17 (not pictured). If you are looking for a more “natural” eye liner in a silver try Korres Soft Eyeliner Pencil in Silver. It’s nice for sensitive eyes and goes for $16 (not pictured). If you are looking for a silver glitter in a silver base try NARS Glitter Pencil Eyeliner in Roxbury. It retails for $24 (not pictured). And if you want the same thing but in a liquid base try Kat Von D Autograph Eyeliner in Love Metal for $16 (not pictured). If you want a silver cream liner in a spooky packaging try Manic Panic Spider Liner in Stardust. It retails for under $17 (not pictured).
