My friends, I have been on the search for the perfect eyeliner for years. Specifically, one that has a great pigmented color, is waterproof and lasts all day without running. It has been a ongoing journey until I finally discovered a few brands I absolutely love and think you will too!
The first one that I purchased was Thrive Causemetics “Infinity Waterproof Eyeliner” in the shade “Lauren” which is a black matte color. It’s the first shade on my arm pictured above. I purchased this on their website for $22 and it comes with a cute makeup bag and built in sharpener. It states it’s waterproof and smudge proof but after a long 8 or 9 hours of wearing the product it did smudge a little. I did not have to reapply during the day which is good news! I do love this company because all their products are cruelty free, vegan and toxic free. Their mission is “Beauty with a Purpose” for every product that is purchased one is donated to a woman in need “in order to thrive,” I will continue to purchase from this company… so go check them out!
The second eyeliner that I highly recommend is Chanel “Stylo Yeux Waterproof” long lasting eyeliner for $33. I purchased the shade “Black Shimmer,” it is the second shade on my arm above. The price may seem a little steep but I feel like it’s worth it. This eyeliner is amazing! “Stylo Yeux Waterproof” is smudge and waterproof and lives up to its product description. It goes on smooth and lasts all day long! It comes in 16 shades with a built in sharpener. If you want a soft and subtle eyeliner that doesn’t give you that harsh look this is the liner for you!
My third favorite eyeliner I purchased was Maybelline “Line Works Liquid” eyeliner in the shade black for $5.97 at Walmart . This is the third shade on my arm in the picture above. I love this eyeliner as well. It’s affordable and stays on all day. If I know I am going to be outside for awhile or have a long work day ahead this is my go to liner. This liner is not for the faint of heart. It gives you more of a dramatic appearance and is great to use for a cat eye look. It has a flexible tip that gives you great control and is waterproof. If you’re on a tight budget I would highly recommend this liner!
