Everybody needs a staple eyeliner in their makeup collection. I am talking about an eyeliner that is so good when you try something else you instantly regret it. We are going to mainly focus on liquid and gel liners today. Your go-to liquid and gel liner is going to be what you use for your signature wing liner (or just a simple line along the upper lashes). This liner has to be long-lasting and stay in its lane. That means no transferring or smudging by any means. We also want this product to be user-friendly and easy to apply. There are two worst-case scenarios when working with eyeliner. Number one, It smudges on your eyeliner or transfers to your under eye. Number two, you are applying your eyeliner and when you overlap the product it pulls up the liner you just put down. Both are nightmares and stressful during your makeup application. If you are reading this blog post, do not fear I am here to help. I am going to be sharing my favorite liquid and gel liners that are the best of the best. Scroll to get started.
The Bobbi Brown gel liner is an absolute classic. I feel like Bobbi Brown is one of those brands that you can always rely on. This liner has all-day wear and is water, sweat, and humidity proof. Its creamy and smooth formula makes it extremely easy to apply. This product also has fantastic pigmentation so you won't have to be there forever applying layers on layers.
Mac is another staple brand within the beauty industry. Their gel liner is a favorite among many consumers and makeup artists. You can expect 16 hours of wear with this product. This formula is waterproof and smudge resistant, if it is a hot summer day or you're caught in a storm, you can wear this product with confidence. Apply this product with your favorite liner brush for an easy, fool-proof application.
Inglot is a brand that I think isn't talked much about by the daily consumer. This brand is really popular with makeup artists. The AMC Gel liner has rich pigmentation and comes in a variety of colors. This liner will give you all-day wear with its crease and smudge-proof formula. Grab your favorite eyeliner brush and this creamy formula will apply with ease.
This liquid eyeliner has been around for a long time and it has earned its spot at the top. Its fine-point brush makes application super easy. You will be able to create multiple liner looks with this product from the sharpest, thinnest of lines to bold, graphic looks. The formula cruelty-free and vegan and still delivers rich pigment with long-lasting quality.
It's no secret that I love Haus Labs. All their products are truly amazing and I have not been let down yet. This liquid liner is one of their best-selling products. Its flexible, micro-felt tip gives you the versatility to create any look with ease. The formulation is quick-drying and provides long-lasting wear with zero smudging. This product is also vegan and cruelty-free.
This eyeliner is a great product and also can be picked up at most drug stores. This is a great option because is it more affordable and easy to get in a pinch if you can't make it to Sephora. You will be able to achieve precise, seamless lines in one easy stroke with its slim, flexible brush. This formula is high pigmented and resists sweat, humidity, and tears for all-day wear that stays in place. It is also vegan and cruelty-free.
Here is the bonus product. If you made it to the end you get to find out what it is.
This has been my latest Eyeliner obsession. The Danessa Myricks Color Fix is freaking amazing. This product is so extremely versatile and there is nothing I Iove more than multi-use products. Color fix comes in a variety of shades and finishes and can be used on the eyes, lips and face. This product makes for a fantastic liquid liner. This product is extremely long wearing and just as easy to use as any other liner product. It is extremely creamy and pigmented and sets into a waterproof, matte finish. Trust me you will not be disappointed with this product.
