Top 8 Best eyeliner Brands in the World

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner  : It’s everything you would want a liquid eyeliner to be: easy to apply, pigmented, fast-drying, smooth, long-wearing, and easy to remove. Our tester enjoyed the packaging, saying it was easy to hold and navigate the wand effortlessly, and they loved how smoothly the liquid glided across their eyelids. 

Maybelline Studio Master Precise Eyeliner : The fine-tip felt applicator allows for precision, the pigmentation is bold, and it’s easy to apply with no skipping or dragging. Our tester really appreciated that the formula dried almost instantly because it helped her make sure the liner didn’t smear. It set down to a matte finish, remained smudge-free on the eyes, and was painless to remove.  

Victoria Beckham Satin Kajal Liner  On top of appreciating how well the formula is able to glide on the skin, our tester loved the vibrant color payoff and the smudging tool on the pencil. Because it can be smudged, it’s a good thing that it doesn't dry down immediately so that you have a minute to work with it, but our tester noted that it takes around 20 seconds to dry down on the waterline, so keep this in mind. 

KVD Beauty Tattoo Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner :This popular liquid eyeliner is an editor favorite and has been a staple on the market for years. The small brush tip applicator makes creating precise definition easy and, and it provides full pigmentation in just one swipe. It glides on effortlessly, dries down almost instantly, and remains smudge-proof as you wear it. 

Charlotte Tilbury Rock ‘N’ Kohl Eyeliner Pencil : A creamy eyeliner pencil that glides across the skin with ease and can be manipulated to create different types of looks is a makeup bag staple. We love this one because, in addition to being offered in several elevated neutrals, it features a creamy formula that can be applied in a solid line or can be smudged out for a blurred effect. 

Melt Cosmetics Ultra Matte Gel Eyeliner :Some people find that using a small eyeliner brush and dipping into a pot gel liner is much easier than applying liquid and pencil formulas. If this sounds like you, we can’t recommend this gel eyeliner formula enough. It comes in a variety of vibrant shades on the brand’s website, which is awesome for those who love experimenting with color, but the jet-black shade is timeless and definitely something worth investing in if you consistently wear black eyeliner.  

Lancôme Drama Longwear Liqui-Pencil Eyeliner :This one is fantastic for the waterline because it has a very smooth formula that’s like a hybrid between a gel and a cream, making it soft to use in the delicate area. You don’t need to apply much pressure at all to yield incredible color payoff, and once applied, it sets down completely and remains totally smudge-proof. The formula is also safe for sensitive eyes, suitable for people who wear contacts and has been tested under ophthalmological control.  

MAC Pro Longwear Fluidline Gel Eyeliner :This is a great long-wearing option because once the waterproof formula sets down, it locks into place and won’t budge until you wipe it away with makeup remover. Our tester liked that the formula is meant to be used with an eyeliner brush, allowing you full control over how much product you use. She also appreciated that it dried down quickly and felt lightweight and comfortable on her eyes.
