Promising review: "This is my first time purchasing Koji Dolly Wink makeup and this type of liquid liner. After several months of using this eyeliner I have to say it is fantastic; it has become one of my favorite staples. The brush tip is very fine and precise. It allows for a ​easy and smooth application of thin to thick lines, does not smudge, dries quickly, and is slightly matte. It is also great for creating sharp lines for that perfect cat eye. It tends to last all day, is more resilient than other liners, and can also be removed with ease. The pigmentation of the eyeliner is a true deep black color. This has become my go-to liner." —WilmaHi

19. L'Oréal Paris Infallible Lacquer Eyeliner can literally last all fucking day, which is super convenient for those long days that turn into really fun, but even longer nights.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "This is the best eyeliner I've found so far, and I've been trying out different eyeliners since I was 14. It's nice and creamy so it doesn't dry or harden quickly like some other brands do. The espresso color is lovely and bold while being a little more natural-looking than black. You only need to use a tiny bit at a time, so the container lasts ages." —Sydney

Price: $7.29 Rating: 4.4/5
