My top five eyeliners
You knew this was coming, right? I did a list of my top foundations, lipsticks, eyeshadow palettes, and now, eyeliners! Eyeliners come in three major forms - cream pencil, liquid, and gel. It's not a question so much of what is the best eyeliner out there. It's more on what is the best eyeliner that fits your needs?
If you're always in a rush and want a soft, natural line, go for pencil liners. If you want sharp cat-eye lines, go for liquid. If you're a pro and want your eyeliner to be immaculate and easily controled (using your preferred brush), go for gel liners. No brainer!
And so, here are my favorite eyeliners. I use them depending on the look I'm going for and how much time I have to dress up my eyes. ;) PS - my all-time favorite eyeliner is the MAC Fluidline, but I didn't include it here because I simply wanted to share other eyeliner finds.
The Kanebo Kate Gel Eyeliner is a nice dupe of the MAC Fluidline, at almost half the price for P660. It's too creamy and skids a little, but who cares as long as it doesn't budge and delivers a solid black line in one swipe?
I love the Majolica Majorca Perfect Automatic Liner. It has an excellent brush that gives me this perfect, precise line everytime, and it doesn't smudge on me all day. It's not as opaque as I'd like but the coverage is easily buildable.
The In2It Waterproof Gel Eyeliner is a crowd favorite because it's super affordable at P380 but can go head to head with expensive eyeliners. You must try this if you're on a budget. Actually, even if you're not! Just beware, these are quite creamy and can be hard to control.
People always ask me what's the difference between the Majolica Majorca Cream Pencil Eyeliner and the In2It eyeliner I mentioned above. Well, it is a little harder so it's easier to control, but it also stays put. Otherwise, not much difference, Majo is just more expensive. I use them interchangeably.
The Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil is quite reliable. I've been using it for years. Creamy, doesn't smudge or budge, waterproof, just the way I like it. However, its pricy and hard to find. Best go for Majo or IN2IT if you're not too brand-conscious.
And that's it. What eyeliners do you love best?
