Black Eyeliners: My Favorites

Published on 28 Jun 2016 / by: Tan

Eyeliner: the basic eye makeup necessity. I have always been in the scout for black eyeliners that will not budge throughout the day. I have not found the perfect one, but these are close enough. They are what I currently have in my make up bag.

  1. Stila’s Stay All Day® Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner (Intense black)

This has been the popular eyeliner among my friends. I have been using it for almost two years now. It is intensely black and dries glossy. It works really well but since I have very very oily lids, I still need to powder below my eyes (i.e. on my eye bags). I would say it could last all day. However, by the end of the day it could fade and smudge a little bit.

The best thing about it is that it glides on very easily. There will be no problem creating very fine lines or cat eyes with precision. It won’t come off if it gets wet, unless you rub it. Plus, it is fairly easy to remove with eye make up remover.


  1. K-Palette’s 24 Hr Real Lasting Eyeliner

This eyeliner was my first love. It is very similar to the Stila eyeliner but the pen tip is slightly sturdier but not as black. The sturdier tip helps create smoother lines. From my experience, it fades more quickly than the Stila eyeliner.


  1. Benefit Push Up Liner

It is a gel eyeliner. The AccuFlex tip works really well in creating smooth lines. The product has a matte finish. Overall, it does what it says. Even though it is not as long-lasting as liquid pen eyeliners on my lids, it is still a better choice compared to other gel eyeliners that I have tried (i.e. Bobbi Brown and Maybelline).

It is much easier to use compared to liquid eyeliners, especially with the applicator. The product does not get to your lashes. Thanks to the AccuFlex tip. Highly recommended for beginners, although it requires more effort to remove it.
