3 of the Best: Eyeliner Pens


I've always been fond of liquid eyeliner. I feel like it's the most precise, most even and (usually) the most opaque kind of liner out there. Over the past couple of years, though, gel was that little bit more en vogue, so I did spend quite a bit of time getting to grips with that formula. I still like gel from time to time but the whole pot and brush thing is a bit of a faff, and if you layer gel up for opacity, it can get messy.

If you want real convenience, you need a decent liquid eyeliner pen. This kind of product is huge in Asia in particular; Eastern cosmetic trends have a habit of filtering gradually over to us in the West, and a new grade of super-sharp and precise liquid liner pens are exemplary of just that.

All three pens that I'm showing in this post are honestly great and almost foolproof. They're hugely different from pens I'd tried in the past from the likes of Essence and Rimmel - they're blacker, more precise and don't dry out. If you struggle with achieving a good flick, one of these pens is a great place to start - when using these I always line across the top first, roughly plot out the flick and then fill it in by turning the pen around - kind of similar to Gossmakeupartist's tutorial.

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner (€16.50)

This was the first pen of this type that I tried this year - it's a little tired now and the writing's rubbed off but it hasn't actually dried out at all, and still comes out very pigmented. If you read our posts regularly you'll know that I get along famously with this and Sinéad loves it too - it just works extremely well and creates a very even line.The formula is very, very black but may need layering if applied over very heavy eyeshadow - my only small complaint! I think it's priced decently  - you can order Stila online from multiple sites like BeautyBay, and it's also available from Harvey Nichols in Dundrum.

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner ($18)

Without a doubt, this is my very favourite eyeliner pen. There is something about the formula and the brush tip that is just perfection... serious props to Orla from Makeup Over Mind for sourcing this for me during her US adventure as it's only available in Sephora!

What I really love about this is the nib because it seems more like an incredibly precise paintbrush. The formula is brilliant because it layers nicely if you're building up intensity, and dries to an incredibly long-lasting, opaque, glossy black. This is an incredible product that has me very hungry to try more from Kat Von D - I've been hearing great things about her eyeshadow palettes and blushes in particular.

Charlotte Tilbury Feline Flick Quick Line Shodo Pen* (€29)

There are most definitely items that I have been loving and do recommend from the Tilbury line (ahem, the lipsticks), but this isn't quite amazing enough for me to recommend for you to shell out nearly €30 on.The pen isn't quite as flexible as the other ones I've tried and as a result the line you get with it isn't as perfect upon first stroke. As with all CT products, I do really love the packaging. The formula is good - very black - and I can work well with the pen to create a nice flick, but the fact that the other two pens I'm mentioning in this post cost about half of what this one does leads me to conclude that this is an overpriced product. Charlotte Tilbury is now stocked in Brown Thomas on Grafton Street as well as on their website, and we'll be telling you more of our thoughts on the line soon!

  1. Eyeliner pens are probably my least favourite way to apply liner. Maybe because I've never found a good one, I always find them very dry. The Collection one is actually quite good and very inexpensive. Dying to try the CT one though! Have you tried any of her other stuff? Would love to know what you think!

  7. good day to everyone,

    My name is Allan Davis, i am from Los Angeles, California, United State of

    America. I want to share a little story of how i got rescued from the hands of

    scammers and fraudsters by a man called Mr. JOHN MICHAELS from ACE

    LOAN SERVICES (aceloanservices@hotmail.com). In August 2014, i was

    scammed by a man called David Peterson, he promised to help me get a loan

    that i should trust him, i trusted him and i sent him my application form

    containing my details and an identity card. later on, he asked me for a little

    amount of money and i sent it to him to help me process my loan but after

    that he just kept asking for more money, i stopped sending him money after

    i had already sent a total sum of $1,245 to him. i asked him to return the

    money but i never heard of him again.

    In September, as i was surfing through the internet then i saw a post by a

    woman called ELIZABETH FORBES, it was about how she was also

    scammed by another person when she was looking for loan and how she

    was able to meet a honest and trustworthy company called ACE LOAN

    SERVICES and she was able to get a loan of $10,000 from them. i read the

    post to the end and i contacted Elizabeth on her Facebook page: (Elizabeth

    Forbes) and ask how reliable they were, she said she was surprised as well,

    that she just wanted to give the company a try. she said she thought they

    were like the rest but they were different.

    I contacted them and told them about my story, on October 4th, i applied

    and i requested for a sum of $20,000, i submitted some documents and 4

    days later i was granted a loan, i am so glad that i don't even know how to

    show my gratitude to them, so i decided to do what miss Elizabeth did. i

    want everyone and anyone looking for a loan from a legit source to contact

    ACE LOAN SERVICES because they are much more trusted and reliable than

    any one i have met. you can contact them through email on:

    aceloanservices@hotmail.com

    Thank you.
