#1 Maybelline HyperSharp Wing Liner in Intense Black, $23.90
Available at all leading personal care stores and Sasa
This black eyeliner feels soft on the skin but provides just the right amount of stiffness to draw a precise line. It is versatile, too. Use the 0.01mm-thin tip to draw a sharp line, or tilt the brush for a thicker flick.
#2 Benefit They’re Real Push-Up Liner, $38
Available at all Benefit counters and in Sephora stores
The flexible angled tip of this gel eyeliner makes it easy to follow along the lash line, though it takes time to get used to, and works best if you like dramatic, matte black cat-eyes. Just a word of caution: You need a good oil-based remover for this – it does not budge!
#3 Shu Uemura calligraph:ink Liquid Eyeliner Pen, $58, refill $29
Available at Shu Uemura stores and counters. An additional brown shade will be available from July
For a liquid eyeliner, Shu Uemura’s calligraph:ink Liquid Eyeliner Pen is great for tightlining. Its calligraphy-inspired brush makes drawing small flicks at the edge of the eye easy, too. It stayed on our eyes for a full-day without smudging.
#4 K-Palette 1-Day Tattoo Real Lasting Eyeliner, $19.90
Available in two shades at selected Watsons, Sasa and BHG stores
If you’re always in a hurry, pop K-Palette’s 1-Day Tattoo Real Lasting Eyeliner in your bag. It dries instantly. Plus, the formula is infused with lash-loving essences that help to promote healthy growth.
#5 Diorshow Waterproof Pro Liner, $37
Available at Dior Beauty stores and counters
The problem with liquid eyeliner? It’s difficult to apply if you don’t have a steady hand. Try the Diorshow Waterproof Pro Liner if you have this problem. It glides onto the lash line like a pencil, but has the same deep intensity as a liquid eyeliner.
#6 Clinique Pretty Easy Liquid Eyelining Pen, $34
Available at all Clinique counters from September
Clinique’s Pretty Easy Liquid Eyelining Pen has a nicely tapered edge that helps to draw thin, sharp lines in a single stroke. It may feel a little light on the hand, but all you need to do is to draw little dashes across your lash line and connect them after – pretty easy, all right.
