  1. Oh when i read the post i thought i would suggest Maybelline Gel Liner and Bingo….it deep dark black so would look good on your complexion!
    Go ahead for it as its cheap and even lasts all day!

  6. Hello Gowri!!

    I have used and i really love the following liners:
    1. Colorbar Liquid Eye liner (Glossy Finish)
    2. Maybelline Gel liner (Matte finish)
    3. Colorbar I-glide Prunella (Glorious shiny purple)
    4. Maxfactor Kohl Pencil (Midnight black- Blackest black and waterline safe)

    Besides these i have many blue, grey and brown liners.

    My only suggestion would be- Avoid brown liners. They just flatten out my makeup. They don’t show up well on my dark skin and add absolutely no definition whatsoever.
    Whichever colour you choose, see that it’s vibrant and vivid.
    If too bold, it can be dulled by smudging, but if it’s dull, cannot be brightened up.

    Hope it helps!!! :))
