Being a huge fan of eye liners (this is my favourite), I am happy to see new ones coming out. And it seems like angled gel, long-lasting eye liners in a “pen” form are the thing now. I have selected three options, and since I haven’t tried any – I’ve included official descriptions.
Smashbox Photo Angle Pure Pigment Gel Liner ($24 from Nordstrom)
“High-impact, richly pigmented liner, combines the intensity of a gel, with unique flexible tip with a versatile, angled shape lets you create any line from thin to thick. Its creamy formula glides on for a smooth line every time while staying put for 36 hours. The waterproof, transfer-proof gel won’t flake or fade and it dries instantly for a look that lasts.”
Available in: Jet, Cocoa, Lilac, Plum, Sapphire and Smoke
“Combines the easy application of a pencil with the glide and intensity of a liquid liner. Its retractable tip hugs the lash line for an instant buildable line, from thin to thick. The beveled tip does not require sharpening and retains its ergonomic shape with each application, while a waterproof formula teams flawless hold with extraordinary glide for foolproof application.”
Available in: 042 Backstage Grey, 092 042 Backstage Black, 182 Backstage Purple, 272 Backstage Blue, 472 Backstage Khaki, 582 Backstage Brown.
Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real! Push-Up Liner ($24 from Sephora)
“Waterproof lash-hugging gel eye liner pen that lasts for 24 hours. Foolproof and budge-proof gel eye liner in a pen that lasts a full 24 hours. Tip is flat, wide guard gently pushes lashes aside to get close to lash line. ”
Available in: Beyond Green, Beyond Purple, Beyond Blue and Beyond Brown
And here is a look from the Samshbox campaign. I would totally wear such liner for a party, or without the inner corner liner – for an every day look. And that blue is so gorgeous!
