I am reading through these FOTD's and noticing some of you use powerpoint liners and some eye kohls ....and then there are just the eye pencils.......what do you guys perceive as the biggest difference between the three? ( I already have a fluidline so I know how that goes on). Which is the "most popular"?

I'm not sure of the difference between all of them. I only know that the powerpoints are smudge proof and water proof, so those are good to use on your inner rim.

i only have minted eye kohl, but i've only used it once.

Hope that this helps!

A soft-on pencil liner that lines, defines and shades the eyes with rich colour and a silky-smooth, matte/pearl finish. Ophthalmologist tested.

Waterproof. Longwearing. Metallic, shimmer and matte finishes. Smooth to apply. Won't transfer, smudge, or budge... Draws the line: powers your eyes. Makes its point. Lasts.



Eye Pencils are formulated to provide rich, consistent colour using ingredients that have virtually no irritancy potential. They are comfortable to apply and sharpen to a fine point to allow for a precise

I have Ivy Eye Kohl and I really like it. It definately stays on all day.

Yeah, thanks Marisol, I saw those descriptions and was still kinda wondering what people's real life experiences with them were i suppose. I guess I couldn't go wrong with either an eye kohl or a powerpoint.

I know that Janelle really likes the powerpoints pencils. So maybe she can give you more feedback.

Thanks both of you .......i will look at powerpoints then!

I love the fluidlines.. they are just awesome to me! I can't wait to get more colors! I have oily lids and skin, usually anything that is a pencil will run down my face.. but not the fluidlines! They work great in the inner rim!

Yup! I adore those Powerpoints! :icon_love I'm much better at applying liner as a pencil than I am with a brush, so these are much quicker for me than the fluidlines. I don't have to be that precise. And they last all day, (and usually longer, because I'll still have some on the next morning after I've already washed my face) and the color selection is great!!!

I love Powerpoints and Fluidliners. Both stay on all day! I love my Buried Treasure PP for mornings when I'm in a rush. It's much more of a hassle to take a brush and the fluidline pot with you in the car- and it's a lot harder to apply it in the car! (NO, I'm not driving as I'm doing this... the bf is!)

it smudges all the time, especially on my bf's face
that's why i switched to the powerpoint liners...and it is the best liner i have used. better than liquid liner, coz liquid liner fades for me *sigh*

Another way to think about it:
Eye pencils : primarly wax based (good for a crisp line)

Eye kohls: emollient/cream based (good for smudging)

Powerpoints: silicone based (water resistent & smudgeproof)
