Purchasing an eyeliner can feel like a gamble. We walk into the nearest Sephora or a drugstore, money in hand, on a mission to find a formula that doesn’t pull, tug, skip or drag. After perusing the shelves, we settle on one in hopes that it won’t smudge before lunch.
The truth is, we never really know if we get a return on our investment until we take it home and try it for ourselves. That said, definitely read the reviews beforehand to make sure an eyeliner is right for you, considering skin type and the wearability criteria you have for it.
Here are top 10 eyeliners according to celebrity makeup artists:
- Inglot Gel Liner – best gel liner
