I've been wearing liquid liners since high school so I have been collecting and hunting done the ultimate liner. My ideal liner is jet black, long lasting, and has a sharp point. I typically wear a winged eye look 5 times out of the week so I need one that is durable. Here is my go-to list of some of the best liners I have used and found. You will notice a fair amount of NYX liners but that's because they are so great and inexpensive.
This was the first time I have ever used white liquid liner. You may have to go over your line once or twice to get your ideal pigment but this liner makes your eyes stand out. Make sure to give it a good shake before applying. The NYX Epic Ink Liner is a great dupe for the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner. I actually found this liner on NYX's IG when they promoted it last month. Both have brush applicators and are very black.
Perfect to throw in your bag. The dual end with the retractable liner is mess free and ideal for those moments when you forget one of your liners. They are always together. A great way to finish an eye look with a wing and tight line with the kohl liner. One of my favorite finds from the drugstore.
Don't be intimidated by the shape of this liner. Once you get the hang of it, you will nail those cat eyes. The shape actually helps you apply product to your eyelids. This liner does not last as long as some of my other liquid liners mentioned below.
Kat Von D Tattoo Liner (Trooper)//Elf Waterproof Liquid Liner (Jet Black)
In one year, I have only owned two of these. The KVD Tattoo Liner has a precious point and does not nearly dry up as much as other felt tip eyeliners. This is because It has a brush applicator. The Elf Waterproof liquid Liner is extra black and extra thin. Ideal for small, thin lines or an intricate eyeliner look. This does take awhile to dry so make sure to be patient and not open your eyes all the way.
Tired of black liner? This sapphire color is literally everything. One swipe is all you need. Smudge proof and perfect for a pop of color on the eye. Bonus, I added glitter wings under my eyes for a little sparkle.
So are any of your go-to liners on my list? If not, what are your favorite high end and low end liners? I would love to know!
