I have been using liquid eyeliners for as long as I can remember, but finding the right one, can be a tricky task. Today I'm putting three different ones from different brands and at different price points to the test..

Let's start with the cheapest one in the line up, the Designer Brands Crème Gel Liner. This little beauty comes in a little jar, that has a built in brush applicator. I am not used to this type of eye liners, so I did struggle the first couple of times used it, I simply got a tad messy, simply as I had way too much product on the brush! The angled design of the brush does make it possible to draw both thin and bold lines, but again, I especially struggle with the thin ones. Apart from that, it is extremely pigmented! Just one swipe gives you a solid colour,- and in actual act, the most pigmented one of the three I'm talking about today. And if its for a few moments to dry, it is also smudge proof, lasting you all day.

Next in line (pun intended), is the medium priced Maybelline NY Master Precise Curvy Eyeliner, which from the outside looks a little bit like a 'sharpie pen' with its thick design. On the inside, the felt tip, has a unique hourglass design, that is to make it easier to draw a curved line along the lashes, from corner to corner, giving a bold look, while if its tipped up on its edge, the design also make it possible to draw finer lines. This liner is also very pigmented, but if drawing a thick line, I do find that you may need to go over the line again for an intense look, but other than that, it does last all day without budging.

Finally there's the L'Oreal Paris Superliner Superstar Eyeliner, which has a unique flexible, almost tear drop style tip, that allows the eyeliner to follow the shape of the eyes for a more natural look. The tip is also super fine, and while it can make a bolder line by adding an addition line, or two, it does draw super fine lines, which is essentially what I prefer. It is also very pigmented, and with just one stroke leaves a deep black impression with a nice shiny finish.

So there you go, three different liquid eyeliners. I admit to liking each and everyone of them, but it does take some getting used to the pot and separate brush, but once you do, I'm sure the result is fabulous. The Maybelline Curvy liner is fantastic especially for those occasions where you prefer a bolder look, while the L'Oreal Superliner Superstar Eyeliner, with its ability to draw superfine lines, perfect for an everyday casual look where a more minimalistic look is preferred.
