Hall of Fame: Best Eyeliners

The best eyeliners in liquid, gel, and pencil formulations that will last the longest and best color selection for you to choose from.

My favorite eyeliner formulations and shades must meet my criteria: be creamy and richly pigmented, apply very smoothly, don’t tug on the eyes, and last all day.

Best Color Selection

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils – I love these pencils and have the purple, green, blue, and black shades in Voodoo, Lust, Stash, Covet, Crash, Sabbath, and Zero.  Sabbath is my favorite dark navy blue shade as an alternative to black.  Available at Ulta

Best Drugstore

Maybelline Lasting Drama Matte

Maybelline Lasting Drama Matte Eyeliner – I love these matte finish liners.  I have the brick red shade, Rusty Terracotta.  In general, Maybelline makes quality eyeliners and they have many formulations to choose from.  Available at drugstores.  

Best Gel Formulation

Inglot gel liner eyeliner
Inglot Gel Eyeliner

Inglot AMC Eyeliner Gel – I’m a longtime fan of Inglot and these gel liners in a pot are awesome.  The color selection is cool and they have real staying power.  Available at Inglot

If you have an eyeliner that you haven’t used in a while, do err on the side of caution and sharpen it before you apply it to your eyes to avoid any possible irritation or infection.
