    What kind are you looking for: pencil, gel, cake, liquid...? These are the ones I know with the best lasting power.

    Pencil: Urban Decay 24/7 pencils, Make Up For Ever Aqua eyes pencils, Milani liquif'eye

    Gel: MAC fluidline, Bobbi Brown gel liner, Wet N Wild mega eyes creme liner

    Liquid: Make Up For Ever aqua liner (they're new), Inglot duraline

    Also, you can try setting your liner with a powder.

    Cleansing - Burt's Bees or CJ
    RO - CJBSC

    use primer beforehand

    try using eyeshadow as your liner instead of pencil or liquid

    Set pencil liner with eyeshadow

    Revlon Colorstay eyeliners. It's affordable and can be picked up immediately at your local drugstore or Walmart. I have very oily lids and this formula works extremely well for me all day.

    Smashbox Jet Set. It's a cream, so it goes on easily and stays where you put it. And for me, it's absolutely budge-proof (my eyelids are super oily, even with primer). Drawbacks: it's a little pricey, and it dries out faster than I'd like (even when I put the lid on tightly and keep it in a sealed baggie in my makeup bag). I've also used Bare Escentuals Buxom Lash Liner with good results. I prefer the texture over the Smashbox (it's somewhere between a gel and a cream), and it's less expensive. The downside is that it's not quite as indestructible as Jet Set (although pretty close).
    3b/3a, medium porosity, slightly coarse, high elasticity, high density. CG 2004; mod CG since 2006. CG again since 4/1/11.

    For another budget-friendly option you could consider L'oreal lineur intense felt tip eyeliner. Really bold color, easy to apply, and doesn't budge. It's really like drawing with a felt tip marker :)
    Hair type: 2C-3A, very dry, extremely low porosity, med elasticity, insanely thick kinky-wavy.
    HGs: Trader Joe's Nourish spa conditioner, Epsom salt rinse, Joico K-pak conditioner
