My all time favourite liquid eyeliner


(from L-R: Rimmel Scandaleyes Micro, Rimmel Scandaleyes Thick and Thin, L'Oreal Precise Slim, L'Oreal Superstar, Stila Stay all day, TOM FORD Eye Defining Pen)

Anyone out there that has oily skin will know the constant struggle of finding a liquid eyeliner that actually stays put. I have spent everything from £2.99 right up to £43 in the hunt to find something that works for me. This is a round up of all the liquid eyeliners currently in my collection, and I can finally share a liquid eyeliner discovery that I love!


In my eyes I could justify this, I had tried and tested so many eyeliners that just didn't work - to me, spending £42 on one was a instant guarantee it would be special! Of-course the packaging is gorgeous, and I do like the double ended applicators, but like the high street liquid eyeliners I've tried, it just didn't stay put and it was the formula that let me down. I found this to last around 4 hours before it started to fade. As luxurious as this is, for me it just wasn't worth it.

L'OREAL SUPERLINER PRECISE SLIM - £6.99

Out of all the L'Oreal eyeliners I've tried this is my favourite. The thin nib is long and flexible making it easy to create a winged liner look, or a really thin line along the lash line. Again, this misses the top spot because the formula just isn't up to scratch, for the first two hours it looks fab, but once by skin starts to become oily the product breaks down and any winged liner I attempted that morning has smudged. 


Considering how affordable this liner is, I'm impressed. If you don't have oily eyelids and don't tend to get much smudging, I think this could work for you. The liquid is dark and definetly black - not watery looking like some. The small applicator makes this really easy to apply too. A good starting option if you are new to liquid eyeliner and don't want to splurge. 

I used this for years in conjunction with the other eyeliner until I found my favourite, I could get 6 hours of nice wear out of this before it start to fade and look a bit of a mess. The applicator is the biggest out of them all, and once I got used to that it made liquid eyeliner a really quick and fairly easy thing to do. Another good high street eyeliner if you don't have the oily eye lid problem!

RIMMEL SCANDALEYES THICK AND THIN LINER - £5.49*

You're probably bored of me complaining about the formulation by now - but again, this just didn't last on me. I love the applicator, I can create thick and thin lines as intended, so it's a really clever design, but I would be lucky if this lasted 3 hours on me. I do really love all of the high street options, the only issue for me is how oily my skin is.


The star of the show is the Stila Stay All Day liner, how this stuff stays on I don't know, but FINALLY a liquid eyeliner that just doesn't budge. It is the blackest black, easy to apply and has made wearing liquid eyeliner so much more enjoyable. I can wear this all day without any fading or smudging, and it is still easy to remove at the end of the day, I have had this for around 2 months now and it is still going strong. It isn't the cheapest of the bunch but certainly no where near the £43 mark, so if you have been struggling with getting your eyeliner to last, you need to try this!

Bear in mind that I do have really oily eyelids, I think if you have normal skin a lot of these will work better on you. I would love to know if you think anything tops the Stila liner? I really thought that the TOM FORD defining pen would be the ultimate liquid eyeliner, price tag definetly doesn't reflect love for a product in this case.

  1. I for some reason have oily eyelids too so really struggle with the eyeliner thing too and hate it so much when it fades on me so my holy grail is Stila Stay All Day too - amazing

    I'd recommend you try benefits eyeliner or cheaper alternative is the Maybeline gel liner pen

  2. That's a bummer the Tom Ford one didn't work for you-- I've heard so many rave reviews about it! Stila is also my go to liquid liner. It's the only one that doesn't smudge! At the moment I'm trying to work through two KVD liners but after they're done I'm heading straight back to Stila.

    1. I know, considering the price it's so annoying. Oo that's good to know because I did have the Kat Von D liner on my wishlist

  3. Ah such a shame about the Tom Ford eyeliner, I thought it would have magical powers! The Stila eyeliner sounds fantastic, I think you have converted me. I like Eyeko and NYC liquid liners, they stay put and are easy to use, thanks for sharing xxx

  5. On me the Rimmel eyeliner lasts for hours, but my eyelids are more dry than oily. It`s definitely in my top 3, with the NYX one and the Master Precise Eyeliner from Maybelline.

  6. I've tried so many liquid liners and have realised the problem is that I'm rubbish at applying it!! The best one I've tried though is the L'Oreal Superliner Precise Slim.

  7. I've heard amazing things about the Stila Stay All Day liner from a lot of Youtuber/Bloggers! I go through eyeliner like water because I wear it everyday and agreed, it's really difficult to find a drugstore one - I originally tried the L'Oreal one but didn't think it was pigmented enough, but they apparently changed their formula since so I should try it! However now I'm totally thinking I need the Stila one and bite the bullet, because it's really not THAT bad of a price for such a good product! xx

    1. Exactly, if you wear it everyday it's worth investing in it so you know it is going to look fab. I only regret not trying the eyeliner sooner, I'm so happy I have it in my collection now :) x

  10. The regular L'Oreal superliner (with gold packaging) is one of my all time faves. I've currently found a fantastic budget eyeliner from Essence that I'm using but I have my eye on the Stila option next x

  11. I find that the Rimmel nips tend to loose shape really easily, making it so difficult to work with! I've been loving the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner and honestly couldn't recommend it more! xo

  12. Oh that Tom Ford one sounds so painful! That price and yet it doesn't last! I've only used Japanese brush tip eyeliner pens and my holy grail is from a brand called Kiss Me Heroine, similar ones you could try are quite popular brands like k-palette and dolly wink. These all are nice and black and really last very well, do check them out!

  13. Im so fussy when it comes to liner, so far the only tip I found is perfect is the Essence Tattoo Liner, it is super black and literally lasts all day!

  15. I haven't worn eye liner in ages but whenever I do I always use the Rimmel Glam eyes, it stays on all day and is so easy to apply! I would 100% recommend x

  16. I love the Stila liner! I've been wanting to try the Tom Ford liner since I hear so many great things about it, but will definitely be passing on it now. There's no way that price is worth it if it doesn't last!

  17. I have oily eyelids and I would suggest you trying eye liners by Essence. They never failed me and they cost like $3. :D also, I found that liquid (like a real tube and a brush) work better than these in pen shape..
