I am going to be listing my favorite eyeliners that I love using and have tried for a while now. I totally approve of them because they have really nice color pay-off, they last all day, and they are precise.
First, I am listing the liquid eyeliners/pens I use on a weekly basis. These are my tried and true eyeliners, I haven’t found any others that work well for me or have the same consistency and formula.
Smashbox Limitless Liquid Liner Pen in Black – This was the first felt tip eyeliner pen that worked so well for me and always gave me a sharp wing. It says on all day but isn’t waterproof so it comes off nicely when using a makeup wipe. I don’t prefer waterproof because I have sensitive skin and rubbing off liquid eyeliner around my eyes is very agitating. If you want a liner that won’t run into your eyes throughout the day, find a liner that is a kohl formula and apply with an eyeliner brush. I recommend this one from MAC Cosmetics – Pro Longwear Fluidline.
Fenty Beauty Flyliner in Black – When I first tried this liner, it was amazing! It does a better job at holding all day long and is sweat resistant but can come off with a makeup wipe without tearing up your skin. The pigment of this eyeliner is so rich and the felt tip is sharp to get any kind of graphic line you desire. Rihanna really knew what she was doing with this liner!
L’Oreal Paris Infallible Paints Long Lasting Liquid Eyeliner #304 vivid aqua – For some liquid colored eyeliner, I love the pens from L’Oreal Paris! The felt tips are sharp, the color is very pigmented and it does not run into my eyes. However, I can’t seem to find it in drugstores anymore, so I buy it from Amazon.
I have tried many other liquid eyeliner brands and not many give me the color pigmentation and sharp tips that I expect. These are just my favorites, but feel free to experiment on your own.
For pencil eyeliners, I have found many brands that make amazing pencils with easy slide formulation and good pigmentation. These are just the brands that I have learned to love and I don’t see myself trying anything else anytime soon, but who knows!
Glossier Play Colorslide (In all the colors!) – These pencils are really creamy and the colors are so unique. You really can’t find these shades anywhere else! They are also smudge proof and glide on really easily across the lid. They are on the pricier side, but I currently have 5 of them and I plan on collecting them all at some point.
MAC Cosmetics Technakohl Liner in Auto-De-Bleu – MAC has some amazing eyeliner pencils, but I love this retractable one because I don’t have to sharpen it and it is skinnier so I can make more precise lines. The formula of all MAC eyeliner pencils are really creamy and smooth. I have plenty of them but this is my all time favorite that I have had since high school.
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil – These pencils are just AMAZING! Every single color I have purchased has been so smooth and the color was vibrant. They also have a very nice color range to choose from, I have four different ones and I want to collect more. They honestly don’t break either which is very convenient.
Covergirl Perfect Point Plus Eyeliner – I personally think that Covergirl has some of the best drugstore eyeliner pencils. I have tried many drugstore pencils and most break or are very dry. Covergirl has is down with the creamy formula and really nice pigmentation. Not to mention that are very budget friendly!
I hope this was informative! Let me know if you would like to see more posts like this in the future.
