Keep scrolling to see which liquid eyeliners made it into our Beauty ‘Haul’ of Fame!
Lancôme Grandiôse Liner
At first glance, it’s clear that this eyeliner is different. And not just because of it’s ultra-thin felt tip and matte finish. The Grandiôse Liner features a 35 degree bendable wand for the most precise and easy to apply liquid liner looks. Just click the wand into place to seamlessly wing a subtle cat eye or one of these chic graphic styles.
YSL Eye Marker
Markers aren’t just for your new-found love of adult coloring books. The foolproof applicator contains a precision tip to easily ‘fill in the lines’ and a flat surface on the side for bolder looks. Reverse cat eye, anyone? Intense black liner glides on in a single stroke, staying put through your long work days and even longer nights. No more worries about smudging while … dancing.
Maybelline Master Precise Curvy
Say goodbye to rouge eyeliner as this easy grip pen allows for the ultimate control. The curve-hugging tip defines eyes with full-bodied precision, so you can go from winged lids to work of art! Here’s how to use it:
Step 1. Apply liner sideways for a generously curvy line, starting from the inner corner.
Step 2. Use the tip to trace a curved wing.
L'Oréal Paris Voluminous Liner Noir
For a fierce feline effect, Noir is your go-to liner. With an ultra-fine 0.1 mm felt tip (for reference, most mechanical pencils use 0.5 mm or 0.7 mm leads) precision is the name of this liner game. We’re talkin’ sleek and smooth flicks with a Harry Potter-esque wand, FTW.
NYX Professional Makeup Vivid Brights Liner
When you’ve had enough of black liner (which is like, never) or just want to mix things up, Vivid Brights comes in nine vibrant eyeliner shades. From violet to turquoise, tangerine to sapphire blue, these pro-level liners deliver instant color payoff. See for yourself with these four neon eyeliner tutorials.
Urban Decay Razor Sharp
Crazy sharp. Intensely pigmented. Water resistant. Longwear liquid liner. Must we say more? Hence the name, Urban Decay’s newest eyeliner launch features 20 razor-sharp shades that last all day and come in everything from lacquered creams to metallic shimmers. The fine-tip brush applicator allows for sharp, thick or bold lines that won’t budge or smudge. And not to mention, the highly metallized packing makes it easy to spot in your purse full of makeup.
Giorgio Armani Maestro Liquid Eye Liner
When the precision of a calligraphy pen meets eyeliner, Maestro Liquid happens. The long-lasting, water based liquid eyeliner features a tapered pen tip for sharp lines, while the matte finish creates a sultry and dramatic look. We’ll ‘cart’ anything that can take us from SFW to NSFW in an instant.
ProTip: For subtle definition, use the tip of the liquid eyeliner to dot color onto the base of the lashes. For more dramatic impact, use the slanted side of the tip to create a wider line boldly extending beyond the eye.
NYX Epic Ink
Featuring a super-slender and firm tip, this liner is a cat-eye-creating dream. The pigmented felt tip glides across the eye with ease, creating the perfect line on your first go round. Oh, and the waterproof formula allows for long-lasting looks that will stay strong way past the end of your workday.
L'Oréal Paris Infallible Paints
Get ready, Picasso. This eyeliner will bring out your creative side so you can have the coolest, most artsy eye makeup ever. In addition to the easy-glide applicator, this liner comes in six cool colors that range from electric blue and aqua to classic black and deep green. Your eyeliner game just got a major upgrade.
Maybelline New York Master Precise
There’s a reason this won Allure Magazine’s Best In Beauty Award. The ultra-fin tip and rich color formula is waterproof and smudgeproof. So you can run through a waterfall rubbing your eyes, and your eyeliner will be in great shape!
The Body Shop Skinny Felt Eyeliner
It seems with any liquid eyeliner, the magic word that gives away a quality product is “skinny.” This is mainly because a super-slim tip allows more freedom and creativity with the liner. You can go as avant garde or elaborate as possible with products like this pick from The Body shop. Whether you use it to define those eyes or lengthen that lashline, rest assured you’re covered with this bad boy.
When it comes to our eyes, bigger is always better. They make us look more awake and totally lit up. But, since not all of us are blessed with larger-than-life eyes, we often have to fake it a bit. While we love the formula, it’s the applicator that’s the real selling points here.This liner allows for easy contouring of the eyes so you get a defined, precise effect.
Urban Decay Total Perversion Reloaded Eye Liner
That annoying skipping and pulling that can often happen with liquid liners will be a distant memory, thanks to this deep black liner. It allows you to create thin, fine lines or bold, thick graphic ones like the most seasoned of eyeliner pros. You’re welcome.
iT Cosmetics Tightline 3-in-1
An eye primer, mascara and eyeliner in one? It’s like the makeup gods heard our prayers and finally answered with this three-in-one miracle. Yep, you heard right, this multi-tasking machine of a product features a peptide-infused lash primer and an ultra-conditioning mascara and liner in one magic wand. Simply press the wand against the roots of the lashes (a.k.a. lash line, a.k.a. root stamping). Then dip your wand again and swipe it through your lashes to apply the ultra-moisturizing formula. Do it one more time and see the marvelous eye-defining results for yourself.
