[Check out our roundup of this open thread with our 9 best stick eyeliner picks and the 17 best liquid eyeliner products!]
If there is any makeup that I have a tendency to abuse, it is eyeliner. I am absolutely obsessed with wearing it, and I almost never leave the house without it despite the Fashion Week runways insisting that no liner/no mascara looks are in. Even though there will a always be big mistakes some people make with liner, it is overall a wonderful beauty product that everybody should try out in different textures, shapes, styles, and shades. I believe the way you wear your eyeliner can say a ton about your personality, and having a favorite eyeliner that you rely on is a great staple for your beauty routine.
I’ve attempted to find the best bright drugstore liner under $20 in the past, and while the winner was clear, I still find myself always going back to my one deep, dark, trusty pal that I’ve purchased at least a dozen times: Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Perversion ($19). I love it so much. I love it so, so much, and I do not think I will ever find an eyeliner–let alone liquid eyeliner–I like quite as much as this one.
Here’s why I love Urban Decay’s formula the most and have used it in well over half my beauty tutorials here:
- It lasts ages.
- When it comes off, it flakes a bit but never smears or smudges under my eye.
- The brush delivers the perfect amount of formula.
- It’s as black as the black liner can get.
- The flexible but thin brush allows for a perfect point.
- It’s an easy, grip-able package.
- It also comes in 10 other colors, so if I’m bored, I can use those.
Example: that time I did Cher makeup! It was the perfect tool for the job.
