Eyeliners are probably one of the essentials in your makeup bags. Black, colourful, waterproof… There are many options to pick from. With a good eyeliner, you can create such great and long lasting looks. Who doesn’t like cat eyeliner right?
In winter I might get the job done with just eye pencil as it stays on quite a long time. However, in summer I surely need an eyeliner. Since I use eyeliners frequently I am always on the hunt for a good, reliable and affordable one. For me it is important that eyeliner won’t smudge and will be long lasting, because it is not easy to refresh eyeliner like how it is with lipsticks or powder. So these are the criteria I look for when I purchase eyeliners. Here are my 3 favourite eyeliners…
Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeliner
I’ve been using it since it first came out. It is a really good eyeliner, it is so pigmented and also applying it is so easy. The tip of the eyeliner is not thin (it looks more like a permanent marker) so you can just apply it quickly and you’re ready to go. You can either apply thin or thick, it all depends on how you like it and which end of the liner you use. The only problem I have with it is that it claimed to be waterproof, but I can’t really say that’s completely true as I could wipe it off with my fingers easily. It might just be me as my eye lids tend to get oily in hot summer days, however, I don’t think it is that easy to remove it.
Maybelline Master Precise Eyeliner
I got this was the liner, because it is really suitable for creating different widths. You can easily create a really fine line, if you are not really into having well defined thick lines. It is all in the title, precise lines aren’t hard to achieve with this. I guess this is the only thing I like about this product. Beside that, I don’t think it is pigmented enough. I just can’t get that really black colour and also it smudges so easily. Who would want that?
Soap & Glory Supercat Eyeliner
I like S&G products, so I had to give this one a try. I can definitely say that is so easy to apply it with this one than the other two. Also, like Maybelline eyeliner, you can create fine lines so easily. Why not give a bold look a try too? This one is also really pigmented, it is coal black. Just my type of my liner… It doesn’t smudge easily, which makes it even better. It even lasts for long time in hot summer days.
These are my favourite three pencil eyeliners. I would definitely prefer Soap&Glory more, but the other two are also really good except some cons.
