The Rankings

Laura Mercier Longwear Eye Pencil
Rank & Style Approved


Laura Mercier Longwear Eye Pencil

If you’re not too handy with liquid eyeliner, Laura Mercier offers a cobalt pencil that promises the same precision of a felt tip (just be sure to keep it sharpened). Waterproof and creamy, this silky eyeliner can go all day.

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner

Stila brings four shades of blue to your makeup bag. The liquid liner’s marker-like tip was designed extremely slim to offer a lot of control and flexibility when building up that classic cat eye—or whatever kind of line you fancy.

Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner

This one was made with the anti-wallflower in mind. A light blue liquid liner is packed with fine, nearly imperceptible glitter for an alluring sheen. Want to stand out even more? Keep building for a look that Urban Decay calls “jewel-encrusted.” 

Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner

Bobbi Brown’s gel eyewear is a bestseller for good reason. The dark blue is deep enough to almost pass as black, but rich enough to earn a second look. Use a fine eyeliner brush to draw the gel-based formula across your lash line for an elegant accent.

Vasanti Kajal Extreme Intense Eye Pencil

Vasanti’s kohl pencil lends itself to sultry looks with a built-in smudging tool. Whether you’re aiming for something feathery, shadowy, or winged, this navy blue eyeliner gives you complete control of the drama.

Sephora Collection Colorful Shadow & Liner

This jumbo pencil packs nothing less than a playful punch in turquoise. Over a thousand five-star reviews guarantee that this crayon is the pick for something creamy with staying power—even on oily lids. And if a liner is too bold for you, it can also be blended out into a shadow. 

Blinc Liquid Eyeliner

Blinc is the go-to brand for people with sensitive peepers. The brand’s liquid eyeliner in dark blue is just as much fun to take off as it is to put on; it peels off like a second skin with warm water, making removal quick, simple, and strangely satisfying. 

Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner

Marc Jacobs’ beauty department created a unique gel pot eyeliner in crayon form. Partly in thanks to the conditioning vitamin E, it glides on easily and can be fashioned into a precise line or softened. An extra bonus for the absent minded, the eyeliner includes a sharpener at its base. You’ll never be stuck with a dull pencil again. 

Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner

There isn’t much that Chanel doesn’t do well, and its waterproof, long-lasting eyeliner is no exception. The gentle liner is widely lauded for staying in place along the watery lash-line. If you’re nervous about adding blue to your palette, Chanel offers several classic shades of blue, from Marine to Fervent.  

Lancôme Artliner Precision Point Eyeliner

Lancome’s Artliner never tugs the lid, skips around on soft skin, or misses a spot along the lash line. Recognized as one of the best options for years on end, other companies struggle to come up with a comparable liquid formula and applicator. The pigment delivered is incredibly rich, long lasting, and ultimately jaw dropping.
