BENEFIT THEY’RE REAL! PUSH-UP LINER
A gel in a pen, this innovative liner lives up to the hype. Whether or not you can master symmetrical feline flicks with it while balancing a yoga pose, it’s the best we’ve found for precision. It hugs the lashline and is more forgiving then a liquid should you slip-up, but once it sets it won’t smudge or budge. Genius.
ILLAMASQUA PRECISION INK IN ABYSS
Slightly more expensive than most, but we love this liner because of the perfect applicator it has – it’s made for creating precise flicks, but it’s also good for lining above and below the eye. It dries to a glossy black finish which is enjoyable and one tube of this will last you an age. Promise.
DHC LIQUID LINER
Ok, so you might not have heard of this Japanese brand but believe us when we say this eyeliner is seriously good. It’s ultra-black, easy to apply and lasts FOR AGES, but also isn’t a total nightmare to get off. The nib is perfect for drawing thick or fine lines on the lid and it doesn’t dry out either.
BOBBI BROWN INK LINER
This felt-tip pen makes application a breeze and you can line as heavily or as lightly as you like. We’ve found that it’s good for drawing flicks and the blacker-than-black formula is seriously impressive. It works well over eyeshadow to create more definition and it lasts well without smudging.
BOURJOIS INTUITIVE LINER
This innovative three-end felt tip liner makes profesh application easy. Inspired by the iconic makeup artist technique of ‘dotting’, this pen intuitively forms a dotted, fine and intense line in one application giving the perfect artistic sweep as well as making your lashes appear longer. Try it, you’ll love!
BARRY M BLACK GEL EYELINER
This is a brilliant little bargain. The gel eyeliner comes with a nifty in-built brush that helps you apply full flicks with ease. Available in black, silver and champagne shades – we’ll take the line-up!
L’OREAL PARIS SUPER LINER BLACKBUSTER
This intensely pigmented fat black marker pen is your tool for drawing graphic lines this season. It claims to be as easy to apply as it is to remove but even if you do make a mistake it’s no fuss to try and try again!
AVON SUPERSHOCK GEL EYELINER
If you’re a pencil girl (we know there’s an army out there!), check out these gel pencils in cool colours – as well as black – from Avon. They glide on like a dream, delivering rich, glossy colour. We’re loving the Aqua Pop blue shade right now.
LAURA MERCIER CREME EYELINER
If you’re a gel eyeliner fan, you’ll love this creamy version that has the precision of a liquid liner but slides on without dragging the skin and can be easily manipulated if you make a mistake. It’s available in black as well as other majorly wearable colours in pots that will last for yonks.
EYEKO SKINNY LIQUID EYELINER
Eye makeup specialist, Eyeko, has some ultra precise pens in various shades for Alexa Chung-worthy flicks. The liquid liners are easy to build up into shapes as thin or fat as you desire. Either way they grant a glossy finish and give you a wide awake look.
