Best Liquid Eyeliner

It seems difficult to find a liquid eyeliner that is simple to apply, comfortable to wear, and long-lasting without fading, smearing, or flaking away from your lash line. Hundreds of goods promise to do it all and more, yet only a small percentage of them actually deliver. We put top-rated liquid eyeliners through their paces at various price ranges to see which brands are deserving of a spot in your cosmetic bag.

The top liquid eyeliners we tested were ranked in the following order:

1
Best Variety Liquid Eyeliner
Stila Stay All Day

Color:

There are 11 different colors to choose from, ranging from white to blue to black.

The key point:

A smudge- and water-resistant felt-tip liner that’s simple to apply and lasts all day.


The Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner is a fixture in makeup artists’ bags for a reason—I’d trust it on tropical (i.e. humid and sweaty) trips and throughout allergy season. This cult-favorite liquid liner has earned both its title and its cult-favorite reputation. With a somewhat flexible felt brush tip and a composition that doesn’t budge on wet, sensitive eyes or oily lids, the mildly glossy liner is simple to apply. Because it’s a deep black, you won’t need to apply many coats to keep your liner crisp. Keep in mind that the ultra-thin tip might flex out of shape and dry out with time, making it difficult to draw a flawless wing.

Pros

  • Simple to use
  • Brush tip made of flexible felt
  • The liner maintains its sharpness.

Cons

  • Over time, the tip may become dry

Brush-In-Pot Liquid Liner at its Best
NYX Matte Liquid Liner

Colors:

Only black available

The key point

It’s difficult to apply, but it dries inky black and has incredible staying power.

This NYX brush-in-pot liner isn’t for novices, but if you have a steady touch and a little extra patience, it’s a stunner. It does not settle into fine lines: the line you draw will remain inky black and razor-sharp. It’s also completely waterproof, and it won’t come off until you scrub it with soap and water. It’s a touch tough to remove and comes off in flakes as a trade-off. Because the formula takes a while to dry, you’ll have to be careful not to blink while the liner is setting. Yes, it’s a little high maintenance since it requires additional care, delicacy, and time to apply, but once it’s on, it doesn’t go away: I fell slept in it by accident and woke up at 2 a.m. still on.

Pros

  • Truly waterproof
  • It Will last a long time

Cons

  • Removing it is difficult.

Best Mate Finish Liquid Eyeliner
Tarte Sex Kitten Liner

Color

Only Black

The Key point

Smooth felt-tip liner with a velvety, non-flaking, non-fading line.

This Tarte liner has a similar applicator to Stila’s, but the tip is a touch firmer for added control (but slightly less precise lines). Consider how a permanent marker appears on a laminated folder: the line you draw on your lid will not budge. You won’t have to waste time (or thicken your exact line) with multiple coats because it has a very deep pigmentation that’s lovely and matte. It also won’t move unless you remove it.

Pros

  • Pigmentation is quite dark.
  • The finish is matte.
  • a strong recommendation

Cons

  • NO problem found

Best Long-Lasting Liquid Eyeliner
Essence Waterproof Pen

Color

Only Black

The Key point

A cheap liner that’s simple to use, waterproof, and lasts all day—but isn’t pigmented enough.

The waterproof promise of this cheap liner is true: at under $3, I was surprised to find that it had the longest staying power of any liner we tested and faded uniformly rather than flaking and disintegrating. It features a simple marker tip with little flex, which is ideal for beginners because it works more like a marker. Unfortunately, it’s not very pigmented, so you’ll have to trace over the line several times to achieve true-black impact, which adds time and stress. We still suggest it if you have the patience to go over your work a few times—it’s best felt tip cheap liner we’ve tested.

Pros

  • Waterproof
  • Evenly fades
  • Long-lasting potency

Cons

  • Pigmentation is light.

5
Best Precise Liquid Eyeliner
Kat Von D Tattoo Liner

Color

Only Black, Brown

The Key point

Draws a razor-sharp line, although the coloring isn’t pure black.

This liner is definitely for you if you require a really accurate line. The marker tip generates a razor-thin line, by far the smallest we’ve seen for the game’s sharpest cat-eye. It also provides a long-lasting effect that won’t budge until you take it off, but it will diminish with time. As a result, it’s ideal for anyone with oily skin or heavy lids. However, the pigmentation is grayer than genuine black, necessitating three applications to get the desired level of darkness, resulting in a larger line.

Pros

  • Extremely precise
  • Long-lasting power

Cons

  • Pigmentation is lighter

  • Award winning
  • Vegan and cruelty free
  • Highly pigmented
  • Smudge resistant

Easy Application Liquid Eyeliner
Revlon Colorstay Pen

Color

Only Black, Brown

The Key point

A Sharpie-style tip that’s simple to use but doesn’t go on pigmented and quickly transfers.

This Revlon liner with a marker tip glide on smoothly, but the pigmentation is gray and takes three coats, making your neatly drawn line thicker. With the wide-ish tip, it’s also difficult to be accurate, and it smudges and breaks quickly when it comes into touch with water. It’s OK, but we prefer the essence liner, which is half the price and performs equally (and lasts longer).

Pro

easy to apply

Cons

light pigmented

Best Well-Design
Maybelline Master Precise Liner

Color

Only Black

The Key point

The pen is well-designed; however, the formula does not stay put and flakes easily.

With a heavily tapered felt tip, his liner is simple to apply, but the poor recipe lowered its score. If you draw a line on your lid, it will feather and expand before it dries, obliterating any chance of a crisp appearance. It flakes rapidly once dry and wipes off at the first hint of a watery eye, but it’s tough to get rid of. This liner isn’t worth it, even if it has a well-designed applicator.

Pros

  • Well-designed
  • Simple to use

Cons

  • Removing it is difficult.
