Drawing the Line | Top Eyeliner Picks

Every makeup addict has that certain beauty product that they collect in mass amounts because they just love to test out each and every one and for me that is eyeliner. Well, it’s one of my favourites, I have a few. Eyeliner is so key in my routine that I use it in some form every single day and I have definitely tested my fair share so I think it’s time for me to point out my top picks. 

The Big Wing: If you are looking to create a big, bold cat eye with major lasting power, you need the Benefit They’re Real Push Up Liner. The gel formula lasts all day and the specially designed tip creates the perfect angle.

The Liquid Liner: For the everyday wing that’s just a bit more subtle, my favourite is Maybelline’s Master Precise liquid liner. Super black and super smooth with a nice thin tip.

The Tightliner: For nights out when I want to add some depth to my eyes, I use the Stila Waterproof Smudgestick in Damsel to tightline my upper lash line. Despite the name, this baby stays in place all night even with my watery eyes. 

The Drugstore Pick: The affordable option that everyone needs in their collection that can be used for just about anything, the Rimmel London Scandaleyes Kohl Kajal. Super creamy and smooth but does not budge and comes in a bunch of colours.

The Fail Proof: If you are not entirely confident in your eyeliner skills, try the Too Faced 3 Way Lash Lining Tool. Made of 3 different tips that make it really easy to create a smooth line. 

What eyeliners are you loving? I am always looking to test out new options!

    I recently started using the Marc Jacobs liquid liner and it's the best I've ever used! I do really like the Benefit Push-Up liner for a gel 🙂

    I'll have to try my Stila on my tightline then! When in London I grabbed the Alexa Chnug for Eyeko Eye Do Eyeliner, I quite like it!

    The liquid liner I can't get enough of (3 times repurchased!) is Catrice Waterproof Liquid Liner in "Don't Leave Me" ("Dating Joe Black" is also nice, bet the waterproof formula is where it's at). Do you have Catrice and Essence in Canada?
