best eye products recommended by beauty bloggers

Time for another round of picks from my resident beauty bloggers.

The most recommended this round were: Bobbi Brown Corrector; Diorshow Iconic MascaraUrban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil; Kjaer Weis Organic MascaraMAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot specifically in Painterly; Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion Tube.

L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara — If volume, length, and false eyelashes had a baby then this mascara would be it. My eyelashes have never been the same thanks to Kim Kardashian’s makeup artist’s, Mario Dedivanovic, suggestion for this affordable buy!
Anastasia Brow Wiz — A dual eyebrow pencil system with a brush spool define the brows in the most natural way. I have tried many eyebrow products since my uni-brow days and this is the only one that I repurchase!
LORAC PRO Palette — A diverse eyeshadow palette where the sky is the limit on the different looks you are able to create! I love that it carries a good selection of matte in the palette as well, it’s hard to find a good mix of matte and shimmery options. This always travels with me!
Urban Decay 24/7 Gline-on Pencil “Zero” — The perfect inky black liner to give strong definition on the lash line or can be smudge out to create a sultry smokey eye. It’s staying power is like no other eyeliner pencil in the makeup aisles!
NARS Pro Prime Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base — This is like super glue for your eye shadow.  It won’t allow your shadows to crease up throughout the day, instead it just brings out the true colors of your eye makeup! I never forget this step.

Bobbi Brown Corrector — Probably the single most life-changing makeup in my bag, this pre-concealer erases dark circles like nothing else. Top it with Bobbi Brown’s Concealer Kit and you will never leave the house without either again.

Stila Contessa Eye Shadow — Most dark eye shadows wash me out, but this is the perfect warm, deep brown that opens up my eyes and can be worn as a wash for daytime or layered on for a smokey eye.

Buxom Lash — I have lash extensions now, but when I wore mascara this was the one. It manages to both thicken AND lengthen without clumping or flaking and the tube is massive but doesn’t dry out. Such a bargain!

One Love Organics Vitamin E Eye Balm — Depuffing, firming, dark-circle banishing and ultra-moisturizing, this multitasking eye cream does it all. I layer on extra at night, like a mask, and wake up looking like I slept 10 hours.

Urban Decay Primer Potion — Without it, my eye makeup would crease before I even finish my first cup of coffee. Nothing beats the original.

Kjaer Weis — Organic mascara gets a bad rap but Kjaer Weis debunks every myth out there. Long lush lashes that also happen to be lavender and rose-scented. And, you can refill the outer packaging once you hit that 3-month mark. It isn’t too good to be true.

MAC Veluxe Brow Liner — If I do nothing else, I still usually fill in my brows. MAC Veluxe Brow Liner is my lifeline. Deep Dark Brunette is an exact match for my brows and it comes with a built in spoolie.

NARS Abyssinia Eyeshadow — I’m in a very committed relationship with NARS Abyssinia Eyeshadow. It’s the only shadow I continually scrape the bottom of the pan on, which seriously gives me a major sense of accomplishment.

Eyeko — They make applying liquid liner ridiculously easy. I stockpile this skinny pen. Always in black.

LARA RAMOS // The Glossarie

Tweezerman Onyx Great Grip Eyelash Curler — The shape lets you get super close to the lash line without pinching. Resulting curl is natural, not bent, and it really holds!

MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterly — The best shadow primer, hands down. It completely neutralizes your eyelid color and grips on to shadow like glue.
Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Sellout — Every girl should have a luminous, pink champagne shadow in her makeup bag. It’s perfect for inner corners, brow bone, and even doubles as a cheek highlighter in a pinch.
Trish McEvoy Precision Brow Shaper — This pencil is thin and hard which means that it’s tough to overdo it, filling sparse brows in the most natural way. I use the spoolie brush on the end daily, whether I’m wearing makeup or not to tame and shape any unruly hairs.
Jouer Eye Clarifier — Gliding this pencil along your waterline zaps all traces of redness, instantly making you look refreshed and wide awake. It’s great for weeks when you skimp on sleep, or during dreaded allergy season.

KARA MANOS // Politics of Pretty

CoverGirl LashBlast Clump Crusher Extensions Mascara — Earlier this month of my blog, I started a “Battle of the Drugstore Mascaras” series and I put five lengthening tubes to the test. This CoverGirl mascara separated, lengthened and defined my lashes in just two coats. The “c” shape of the brush also makes it easy to apply without smudging and it’s easy to remove before bed.

BareMinerals Ready Eyeshadow 2.0 in The Inspiration — Earlier this year I was on the hunt for an easy everyday eyeshadow duo or quad in a pretty purple shade. I stumbled upon this duo by BareMinerals and I’ve worn it every single day. The pink frost shade is a nice highlighter to sweep under the brow and the inner corners of the eyes. The glimmery plum has a silky texture and is easy to blend and build on.

MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Bare Study — This is my go-to long-wearing eye color that works as an eyeshadow base, keeping everything in place. Sometimes I also wear it alone on days when I don’t feel like doing my makeup but still crave a little bit of color.

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner — My New Year’s resolution from 2013 was to perfect the cat eye look. I practiced every week using Stila’s liquid marker so I swear by this easy-glide pen. It’s a great liquid liner for beginners.

Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow — I’m a bit lazy when it comes to brow maintenance but this brush-on fiber gel is easy to use for blending and shaping thick arches.

MEGAN SCHWARZ // Seed to Serum

Jane Iredale Eye Pencil in Black/Brown – This eyeliner deposits the perfect amount of color, lasts all day, and doesn’t smudge. There is nothing I hate more than wandering eyeliner.
Kjaer Weis Mascara – Finally! A clean mascara that performs! Though pricey, this mascara separates and defines lashes beautifully making it worth every penny in my book.
RMS Beauty Cream Eye Shadow in Solar – This eye shadow’s golden hue was an immediate hit with me. It is about as close to universally flattering as it gets and manages to warm my light (okay, pale) complexion.
Ilia Illuminator in Polka Dots & Moonbeams – This is my absolute favorite highlighter. It imparts a subtle radiance to the entire face when applied beneath the brow bone and at the inner corner of the eye.
Kjaer Weis Eye Shadow in Charmed – I am not a risk taker when it comes to eye shadow; in fact, I am always on the hunt for the perfect neutral, beige shade. My search ended when I discovered Charmed. The color is beautiful and helps me fake 8 hours of sleep!

SHISEIDO White Lucent Anti-Dark Circles Eye Cream and BOBBI BROWN Hydrating Eye Cream — Bobbi Brown Eye cream and Shiseido. It’s so vital that we hydrate our undereyes to keep them from looking puffy, from forming wrinkles, and to prevent dark circles. Not only that, but when it’s hydrated down there, your concealer will apply much more smoothly and you’ll look hydrated and awake!

Lancome Effacernes Waterproof Under-Eye Concealer — For the shortcut to looking like you got a lot of sleep on days you didn’t, under eye concealer will be your bestest of best friends. I used Bobbi Brown’s Corrector Concealer for years and loved it, but recently I switched to Lancome’s waterproof formula that is a bit creamier, which I love. Both are great alternatives and the key is to pick a shade that is slightly brighter and peachier than your normal concealer (the peach tones will cancel out the darkness from dark circles).

Marc Jacobs’ Magic Marc’er — I normally opt for gel eyeliners, but once I tried this liquid liner, I was hooked! The pen and the skinny felt tip makes it easy to control, and the formula itself is amazing. It glides on smoothly, has a nice semi-shine, and stays on forever no matter what kind of craziness you go through. Best liquid eyeliner, ever.
Diorshow Iconic Mascara — This has been my favorite mascara for years (the waterproof forumla). It coats every single lash evenly without any clumps and curls my lashes while extending them as well. For a natural va-va-voom look, this is the mascara you want to go with. LOVE!
Too Faced Shadow Insurance — There are so many great eye shadow palettes out there, but what good is a powder shadow that won’t stay on your eyes? So my final pick is an anti-crease eye shadow primer. I’ve tried many shadow primers but this one just works for me. It picks up on pigments, keeps the shadow staying on long and doesn’t lead to smudging.
