Can These Liquid Eyeliners Stand The Oily Eyelid Test?
To create the purr-fect cateye that will stay all day sans panda eyes, come hell or high water. Cleopatra will have nothing on you, hun.| October 18, 2016
Ah, eyeliner. The one thing that can change your look from eh to yeaaaaah with a literal swish and flick. Who knew a simple black line just above the tip of the lid could hold so much power? But when the eyeliner melts and leaves a mess under your eyes, that fairytale turns into a beauty nightmare. And it ain’t even midnight, we’ll bet.
A perfectly drawn cat-eye is pretty, but dark eye circles created by smudged eyeliner – and not a lack of sleep – aren’t. While most get by with a run-of-the-mill pencil, cream or gel eyeliner, those of us with tricky oily skin need the sturdier, hardy stuff. Enter our creme de la creme of liquid eyeliners, one for every budget. Not only do these babies stay flake-proof and smudge-proof for hours and hours, they’re easy to use, highly pigmented and precise. The cherry on top of the cake? They’re not difficult to remove – at all. Just a single swipe of oil-based eye makeup remover is all it takes. I believe “WHAT SORCERY IS THIS!” is an appropriate response at this point.
While you ponder which liquid eyeliner to have and to hold forever, check out our tried-and-tested list of mascaras and liquid foundations that actually work for oily skin over here and here. We pinky promise that they work! Don’t forget to like us on Facebook as well, so you don’t miss a single update.
