Battle of Liquid Eyeliners (Part 1)
This post is dedicated to all of my fellow oily, hooded eyelid girls out there :) We all know that finding an eyeliner that stays on our eyes is no easy task. The main qualities I look for in a good liquid liner are: long-wearing, smudgeproof, waterproof, and precise application. Liquid liners tend to have the most long-lasting formulas. I absolutely love pen/marker style eyeliners. These are super easy to use but they tend to dry out quickly. My advice is to have at least 2 eyeliners on hand and rotate them so you don’t use the same one day after day. Also, store your liners with the tips down will also help them last much longer. Here are all the liquid liners I’ve tried since I first started using them a little over a year ago. The products are ordered from favorite to least favorite.




1. Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner [Deep Black]: $15-$20
Pros: easy to use; long-lasting; waterproof; smudgeproof; thin brush tip creates very precise line
Cons: not the easiest for making a wing; hard to find in stores; expensive/slow shipping when purchased online
[full review]
2. Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner [Intense Black]: $20
Pros: long-lasting; waterproof; smudgeproof; very pigmented; easy to make a wing; available at Sephora
Cons: felt tip is not as precise and thin as Dolly Wink’s brush tip; felt tip tends to bleed sometimes; expensive

3. Kat Von D Tattoo Liner [Trooper]: $18
Pros: easy to use; long-lasting; waterproof; smudgeproof; precise brush tip; available at Sephora
Cons: occasionally fades throughout the day; not as thin as dolly wink (but great for creating more dramatic looks)

[full review]
4. K-Palette 1 Day Tattoo Real Lasting Eyeliner (Waterproof) [Black]: $17-$20
Pros: easy to use, smudgeproof, brush tip draws thin, precise line
Cons: more like water resistant, not waterproof; fades and transfers after 6 hours; hard to find in stores; expensive/slow shipping when purchased online

[full review]
5. Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner [Perversion]: $19
Pros: very pigmented; available at Sephora
Cons: very wet formula; traditional liquid liner brush applicator (difficult to use); flakes off after a few hours; creates a mess when removing with a makeup remover
