Top 3: Best Long Lasting Liquid Eyeliners

best long lasting liquid eyelinersWhether it’s because of the summer heat, or you have oily eyelids – finding the an eyeliner that lasts is really tough.

I’ve personally been on the hunt for the best long lasting liquid eyeliners, and I can finally give my Top 3 best that will suit any type of women and their lifestyle.

I’ve tested these eyeliners on several of my makeup clients (even brides) as well as out myself, and these really are the best long lasting liquid eyeliners on the market right now – and I would love to hear your thoughts too!

  • Make Up For Ever Aqua Black. Sure, this is technically a waterproof cream eyeshadow, but you can use as eyeliner, because it’s staying power is fantastic. They are seriously not kidding with “waterproof”, this will stay on a very long time. I remember my first time using it in makeup school (I went to Make Up For Ever Academy) and I was shocked at the staying power. Apply with a thin eyeliner brush and you’re good to go.
  • MAC Liquidlast. This is the hardest liquid eyeliner to apply, because the tip is not steady and the products its;f is quite thick and goopy, so I’d recommend using a separate eyeliner brush. But my goodness, when you do finally get the eyeliner on – this will stay on for DAYS if you want it to (you shouldn’t though). I had so much trouble removing this (in the end only Vaseline worked) so if there’s one eyeliner that will last through… well, anything, this is it. Swimming, the oiliest of lids, crying, sweating… you name it! (I read a review that said this is like super glue).
  • Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner. Probably not as “intense” (color-wise), as the ones I suggested above, especially as they come in several beautiful colors, but this would be a great everyday, simple liquid eyeliner. It looks so simple and unassuming, but the lasting power on this one is absolutely phenomenal.

  3. Yep. I love the Stilla liquid eyeliner! It is really so simple and unassuming and the lasting power is really great!

  4. I’ve had a lot of success with Kat Von D’s tattoo liquid liner. It is the easiest to apply by far (that I’ve tried). The pigmentation is super rich. Most importantly, it seriously lasts all day!! I love it!
