Liquid liners are the easiest way to create a quick and easy cat eye flick, or just to create some definition. My two main issues with eyeliner is that it's difficult to find one that's both easy to apply and black enough with a good formula! Here are my best and worst picks for liquid liners..
1. Wet n' Wild H2O proof liner
This is by far the best eyeliner I have ever tried. And for €4.50 it's pretty cheap too! I got mine in 'ultra black' - which is exactly what it is. It was definitely the blackest out of any of the eyeliners. I like the formula and sponge applicator as it's really easy to use! Not to mention that it lasted so much better than the others.. Even after having a bath it's still on my skin!
After the bath..
2. BENEFIT MAGIC INK
While I may not have this in my curren collection, I have tried this before and it is a great liner! Can't really work the applicator as it is a brush and not stiff enough but the formula is great
Here are a few swatches I took to prove that Wet n' Wild's liner is the best of the bunch - and most definitely 'H2O proof'
3. CATRICE EYELINERS - ALL OF THEM!
There hasn't been one Catrice eyeliner that I haven't liked! They all have great formulas and applicators, as well as being so cheap! Their pen is even better than the Eyeko one :) Again, I have none in my collection right now cause I've been trying to try out different brands - but from now I'm going to stick to Wet n' Wild or Catrice
And the worst!
1. MAYBELLINE MASTER DUO
By far the worst eyeliner I have ever tried. It seemed really unique - having an applicator that could be used to apply both thin and thick liner. However, the applicator was plain weird and difficult to use ( a flat circle) so I decided to cut it off, but it still didn't look good. It doesn't apply well at all, it's streaky and has such a thin consisitancy. Didn't like this one bit!
2. EYEKO PEN LINER
For an eyeliner represented by cat-eye flick Queen Alexa Chung, you would think that this €16 liner would be a God send... But no, it really isn't worth the hype. I found it drying, and really difficult to line near my lashes. So many cheaper, better alternatives!
While the pigmentation is good, and it is quite easy to apply - the colour just isn't right! I want a jet black liner - this looks more navy (especially compared to the others.) Also, hairs on the brush started to stick out - I cut them off, but still made application harder. Not bad for it's price point - but again, go for Catrice or Wet n' Wild instead!
