A smoky-eye staple, this dual-ended liner houses a soft and creamy crayon liner on one end and a fiber-tip liner on the other so that you can mix and match together to create a multitude of different winged liner looks.
Gel pots can take a little practice to nail, but once you’ve got the hang of it, you’ll be set with perfect eyeliner every time. This creamy, water-resistant one, which comes in the prettiest jewel tones, is void of chemicals and irritants so it’s suitable for those with sensitive eyes.

If you hate when your liner "skips" your lid and leaves you with gaps that you need to go back and fill in, then you’ll be happy to discover this unique eyeliner. Its three-prong tip not only gives amazing control, but the applicator also fills in the spaces between each lash.
Literally like a magic marker for your eyes, this thick applicator (you can turn it to use the thinner side of the tip) is designed to be used just like a felt-tip pen. When it’s wet, you can smudge and smear the intense matte black color, but once it dries, it’s not going anywhere.
With three different tips to choose from—classic felt tip, ball point for more definition or triple edge for bold and graphic styles—the liquid liner in these pens always flows and you never have to reapply to get a dark exaggerated line.
