Eyeliner, Yes Please! 10 Best Waterproof Eyeliners for you

Eyeliner, Yes Please! 10 Best Waterproof Eyeliners for you

June 30th, 2021 | by

Whether you like to go glam or keep it casual, have a date to doll up for or a girls’ night-in, there’s some things that don’t change and probably never will. Like the classic eyeliner. So jazz up your look with a simple flick, and turn your outfit of the day into something out of the ordinary with these ten eyeliners:

1. Maybelline Hyper Glossy Liquid Liner

Arguably our favourite drugstore brand, Maybelline’s Hyper Glossy Liquid Liner makes the cut for us because of one, okay three reasons: literally dries instantly, like seconds after you put it on, it’s super duper pigmented, and it’s ultra smudge-proof. Leave it to Maybelline to bring Manhattan into your bag

2. Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen

A single swipe is all you need with Pixi’s Endless Silky Pen with zero retouches needed through the day because of its intense lasting power (24 hours). It’s even more intense colour gives it the appearance of a liquid eyeliner, in an easy to use pencil format. The cherry on the cake is that it’s enriched with vitamin E, so you know it’s great for your skin, and Mica oil, which’ll give your eyes that au naturale glow. 

3. Estee Lauder Double Wear Infinite Waterproof Eyeliner

From classic French beauties like Brigitte Bardot, to the quintessential modern French girl, the smokey eye is a timeless trend that we can say with la confidence, is going nowhere. Which is why the Double Wear Infinite Waterproof Eyeliner by Estee Lauder, is a BoldLyfe favourite. Equipped with a smudge tip and sharpener, you can toggle between perfect and precise, and smokey and sexy. 

Not only is it waterproof, but also (wait for it) smudge proof, sweat proof, heat proof, and humidity proof. Oh also, it lasts for a whole 24 hours. That means going by your entire day of zero touch-ups and a whole lot of gorgeousness!

4. Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner

Smashbox’s Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner SHARPENS ITSELF (Yes you heard it right!) every time you twist open the cap. Plus it’s packed with pigment, and is a pencil liner that performs like a liquid one. And if that’s not freakin’ awesome, we don’t know what it is. 

5. Bobbi Brown Ink Eyeliner

Bobbi Brown’s undertone-first philosophy means their shades are perfectly tailored for every style and every complexion, truly making your face and what you put on it, a match made in heaven. Go for their Ink Eyeliner if what you’re looking for is extreme pigment, precision, and lasting power. 

6. Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Bold Defining 24HR Liquid Eye Liner

With its ingredients formulated to provide high intensity, colour, and shine, the Beautiful Color Bold Defining 24HR Liquid Eye Liner by Elizabeth Arden means you get to look like you just had a thousand-dollar makeover! Quick dry, smudge proof, transfer proof, sweat proof, and with a staying power that lasts 24 hours, this is a holy grail product we swear by and you can too. 

7. Colorbar Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner

If you’re on a budget and wanna look like you’re not, the Colorbar Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner is your new best friend. It delivers intense colour payoff without smudging, flaking and is sensitive skin and contact lens friendly. Speaking of friendly, it’s also cruelty-free and we’re here for it!

8. M.A.C Pro Longwear Fluidline Eyeliner Gel

This is a pot-based eyeliner and you have to buy the brush separately, but we still think it’s totally worth the fuss because if you want to look like you just got off of the plane from New York Fashion Week, this is where your quest finally comes to a happy end.

We love it because of its super easy dip-and-stroke way of going about things, and because it’s Charlie Harper smooth. Also, it comes in like a million shades and finishes, is totally smudge-proof, and lasts 16 hours. 

9. SUGAR Arrested For Overstay Waterproof Eyeliner

Okay so this one literally rocks because it’s the perfect eyeliner for everyone: if you’re a newbie to the whole eyelining game or if you’re a pro. It makes winging it the easiest thing in the world! It’s designed with a precision tip which allows you to draw on that dreamy flick and keep building on it (buildable formula ftw!!)

And it’s super-duper pigmented which means you get to have this gorgeous opaque-y look that makes you look like whatever you’re doing, you mean business! Also, it’s literally so waterproof you could scuba dive and it won’t. come. off. 

10. Sephora Collection Contour Eye Pencil 12HR Wear Waterproof Eyeliner

We love ourselves a native Sephora buy just because of their incredible range. Whether you’re on a budget or in the mood to splurge, the Sephora Collection is your one-stop-shop for all your retail therapy cravings. This particular one’s what you should probably go for if you’re somewhere in between (but more on the budget side of things). It’s silky smooth, heat and humidity resistant, entirely smudge-proof for up to 12 hours, and cruelty-free. A win win win win! 

So ladies, now that you are empowered with all this eyeliner-ammo, go on and make the right decision!
