5 Long-Lasting Eyeliners
I have a confession. While my blog is centered around my love for mascara, it’s not actually my favorite beauty product. I don’t mind leaving the house without mascara on, but will I ever leave without eyeliner? Heavens no! Eyeliners are fantastic at defining your eyes and making you appear more awake, which is incredibly important if you’re a chronic blogger that can spend 12-18 hours in front of a computer. Check out some of my favorite luscious and long-lasting liners, and see if they don’t become your must-have beauty tool, too!
If your eyes are super sensitive to the products you use, then you will love Tarte’s SmolderEYES Amazonian Clay Waterproof Liner ($25 on Sephora.com). Aside from being nice and creamy, this eyeliner is paraben-free and has Amazonian clay to moisturize your lids. Oh, and the best part? It also has a smudge brush at the end of it, making it easy to create the perfect smoky eyes.
For an eyeliner that won’t cost you a ton of money, Essence’s Eyeliner Pen in Black ($2.49 on Ulta.com) has you covered. What can you expect from an eyeliner that costs less than $3? A whole heap of magic with a smudge-proof formula that does a great job at lasting throughout the day and goes on precisely every time thanks to the Japanese felt tip. This eyeliner had me at hello.
CoverGirl LiquiLine Blast Eyeliner ($7.03 on Drugstore.com) is definitely one of my favorite eyeliners simply because the pigments are so intense. It comes in six different colors from Green Glow to Blackfire, but my favorite is Blue Boom which has a metallic finish and looks stunning on the lower lash line. For those days when you don’t feel like wearing an eyeshadow, these liners will make your eyes pop with minimal effort.
One liner that I will forever repurchase is Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero ($18). Even if my eyes water up due to allergies, I accidentally rub my made-up peepers or I fall asleep without washing my face (the horror!), this eyeliner won’t go anywhere. The price is a little steep, but with quality this good I just can’t live without it!
Sally Hansen’s Natural Beauty Forever Stay Eye Pencil ($7.95 on Drugstore.com) is a paraben-free liner that really surprised me! It has a stellar formula that not only feels good on the lids, but lasts all day, too. It can be really difficult to find affordable paraben-free eyeliners that also work well, so this baby is definitely one to grab—and fast!
Do you love eyeliners? Which of these is your fave? Which beauty product do you never leave the house without?
