These are a few blue eye liners I reach out to when I need a pop of color along my lash line. Blue eye liners look great on most people and help jazz up any neutral eye look without being OTT.

MAC Technakohl Liner in Auto-de-Blu($15) - I've reviewed this previously and gravitate towards this one more than any other blue liner. It is matte, goes on smooth and stays put for hours together. Removal is easy too, with a waterproof eye makeup remover. The tip wears out a little after a few uses but still works great for the lower lash line and waterline.
Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Definer in Deep Ocean($6)* - Although not completely matte, this is a great pick for the lower lash line especially, when you want to smudge it out. It takes a while to set and does not budge after that. It is a great budget buy and the subtle metallic sheen is something I love. It also comes with a sharpener which is a big plus for twist up pencils like these.
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Pencil in Binge($18) - Binge is a very pretty shade but, goes on a little sheer and streaky especially on the lower lash line. I love the quality of the Urban Decay Glide On Pencils but, I wish Binge was just a little more pigmented. With a little bit of layering, it works well and the subtle shimmer does not irritate my eyes at all.
Essence Metallic Eye Liner in Black Knight($1.49)* - These may not be the most long lasting liners but, the color Black Knight is a beautiful, deep blackened blue. It looks almost like a black liner, only less stark. It tends to fade after about 2 or 3 hours which is a big drawback if you have oily lids.
Prestige Total Intensity Liner in Fierce Blue - I love the quality of Prestige Total Intensity Liners in general and think they are very comparable to Urban Decay's Glide On Pencils for a fraction of the cost. Fierce Blue is shimmery, metallic and highly pigmented. It does not move or fade for hours together and the color is very vibrant too!
