You know me and eyeliner. It’s a rare occurrence that they get a whole post dedication here on VDM – in fact this may be a first. So here it is *insert fanfare* By Terry’s Crayon Kohl Terrybly in Festive Gold may just about be one of the best eye pencils I’ve ever used. Sure the colour is great – a metallic amber gold that pulls a little rusty when applied – but it’s the formula that really impresses. It is so long lasting. Emphasis on the ‘so’. When swatched on the back of the hand it required an oil-based makeup remover to lift it off and when applied on the lashline it needed the same treatment. Hello Clarins Instant Eye Makeup Remover. This stuff sticks around, applies so softly almost like a gel and stays mailable for a few seconds before it sets. It’s everything you could ever want in an eyeliner.

Surprise, surprise it’s one of the pricier offerings I’ve tried and comes in at £22 from Space NK. Alternative colour recommendations welcomed.

    Give the Marc Jacobs Highliner gel crayon a try…it lasts FOREVER, and the Ro(Cocoa) brown is simply gorgeous. I just love your blog!

    Have you tried Laura Mercier’s Longwear Creme eyeliners? I managed to get my hands on the respective mini longwear set, and now I am an eyeliner convert.

  • Jennifer Monforton

    Wow, so super pretty! Just bought my first By Terry makeup products last week and am definitely tempted by this liner! xo

    I’ve never tried anything from By Terry. But that eyeliner looks amazing. Do you think it will work for blue eyes?

    This looks brilliant! I find the Avon supershock gel liners to be great too, they glide on really smoothly and just don’t budge when they set. Plus they’re super cheap!!

  • Gemma Antonia

    Love the sound of this! I’m so fed up of eyeliners wearing off and having to touch them up during the day so I need to get my hands on this!

    Damn this sounds good, I think Soap and Glory Smoulder Kohl will hold my heart for a while so darn good.

    Have you taken the plunge and changed your hair colour?

    I’ve got a gorgeous MAC dark golden/bronze eyeliner but I cannot for the life of me make it look ‘right’ on. To smudge or not to smudge, all around eye or just the top, thin or thick line – help!

  • Stoofer

    I have this in Brown Stellar the most gorgeous chocolate brown with a gold sheen. It’s uber glam!

  • Zoë Baldwin

    Pretty but oh so pricey. NYX do great eyeliners for much much cheaper x x

  • Frances Loves

    Gorgeous colour! I bet it looks beautiful smudged under the eyes!
    I’d love to see it on!

  • mageeski

    I just bought a MAC eyeliner today. I wonder how they compare.


  • Emma Bovary

    Sounds pretty good! Not sure I’d get much wear from that colour so might look into their more chocolately offerings soon :)

  • Celina

    This is such a beautiful eyeliner! I love eyeliners in this kind of shade!
