A fantastic liquid eyeliner is a real makeup bag staple. While it takes a little practice to get the application just right, once you’ve managed to perfect the technique, that sultry cat’s eye look is never not a winner. Invariably, however, some products are a little better than others; some smudge, no matter how long you’ve allowed them to dry, some only go on in thick, aggressive lines, and some are just plain unwieldy to use. In order to help you to pick out the best one for you, I’ve compiles this handy list of 7 liquid eyeliners; enjoy!
1. The Body Shop Liquid Eyeliner
Price: $ 13.50 at thebodyshop-usa.com
This handy liner made by The Body Shop is a fab little product. Its felt tip applicator makes outlining your eyes very easy, and, as long as your eyelids are clean, you’ll find it’ll hold in place until you decide to wipe it off. It’s available in several natural shades, although you’ll find it most commonly in softer browns and taupes; these are a little less dramatic that the conventional black and make for easy day time wear.
2. Kat Von D Autograph Eyeliner
Price: $16 at sephora.com
This gorgeous, shimmering liner has been designed exclusively for Sephora by the daring Kat Von D. It come a several metallic shades – from plum to emerald green – and the wand is especially styled to support an especially accurate application. The dramatic colouring and the shine-factor make this a product suited particular to nightime wear, although you could no doubt tone down your look by sticking to thin lines and keeping the wand extra-close to your lashes.
3. Ligne Blackstar Liquid Liner By Terry
Price: $43 at barneys.com
This classic liquid liner comes with an inspired ‘fountain pen’ style wand to allow for an extremely accurate and also very subtle application. You’ll find you can make your lines just as thin as you’d like. For a look that’s little more ‘sex kitten’ simply go for another coat. This liner is elegant, versatile and great for creating a polished look in a rush. You’ll find it at Barney’s in both black and enigmatic blue.
