Stuff I Heart: Coloured Liner, from Clinique, The Body Shop and Eyeko

Ok, so I’m not the most adept at applying the stuff, but a look I really love for summer is a flash of coloured eyeliner on the upper lid. It’s quick and easy and doesn’t look too heavy in the sun. Here are three colours I’ve been wearing a lot of late:

1. Clinique Quickliner for Eyes Intense in Intense Ivy €17.50 (top photo): The twist up nib means this is always sharp and it goes on silky smooth, with no pulling or dragging at the eye lid. It looks great worn as a defined line or softly smudged, and I love the mossy green colour, too.  
2. Lily Cole for The Body Shop liquid eyeliner in violet, €13.95 (bottom right): The slightly metallic finish of this violet liner is lovely but it’s a little watery, so it takes a couple of coats to reach opacity. If you’re looking for a really great purple liner I’d recommend the Avon Supershock liner in Blackberry, or for a waterproof version, YSL’s Dessin Du Regard Eye Pencil in Shimmering burgundy.  
3. Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner in turquoise, €11.00 (bottom left): I’m a sucker for a pen liner and the soft tip of this one is so easy to apply. The colour is intensely pigmented and doesn’t fade throughout the day.  In fact, it stays put a little too long - my one bugbear is that this is a little tricky to remove. Eyeko claim that a dab of water is all you need, but staining has been a bit of an issue for me.
Are there any other great coloured liners I should try?  Tell me in the comments!
