Top 5: Pencil Eyeliners (For the Waterline)

Greetings from the Dark Side~

Like many of you, I am always on the search for the best eyeliners, especially eyeliners to wear on my waterline. I've found a few really great eyeliners in my search and I want to share my Top 5 favorite eyeliners for the waterline! Keep reading for more information!




*In order from Left to Right:

1. Prestige Total Intensity Eyeliner in 'Deepest Black'
This is the most recent find, and by far one of the best drugstore finds. The Prestige eyeliner is really affordable, but it does not lack in quality. It is an intense semi-glossy black that dries to a satin finish. This is particularly great for a smokey, smudged look~ You can of course use this on your upper lash line for a smokey look!

2. Milani Liquif'Eye Eyeliner in 'Black'
This Milani one is very similar to the Prestige eyeliner. This is also an intense semi-glossy black. I find that this one smudges a little more than the Prestige one though, so I prefer the Prestige one because it lasts longer on my waterline.

3. Urban Decay 24/7 Pencil Eyeliner in 'Perversion'
If you have trouble finding a black that stays on your waterline, you might want to try this super matte black. I personally prefer this particular eyeliner for neutral or classier looks. It is still really dark, but it is not as smudgy and rocked out like the Milani and Prestige ones. This one is a bit pricier, but definitely worth the price. If you are not willing to shell out the money for this one, definitely try out the Prestige or Milani eyeliners.

4. Rimmel ScandalEyes in 'Sparkling Black'
When a plain black eyeliner gets too boring for you, try this sparkly black eyeliner. It is a pigmented black loaded with silver sparkles. It looks insanely awesome on the lower lash line/waterline and the upper lash line. It stays surprisingly well on my eyes too! Such a great drugstore find!

5. Rimmel ScandalEyes in 'Nude' 
The nude eyeliner is one of my recent beauty favorites. This Rimmel one is a cheaper alternative to the higher end nude eyeliners. I have to say that for $5, this nude eyeliner is freaking amazing. It is quite pigmented and long lasting. It looks so great for a wide-eye, natural look! Yet another amazing drugstore product! I used the eyeliner in THIS look.



There are so many more great eyeliners, but these are the standout in my makeup collection. If you have any recommendations for great eyeliners, let me know ^_^ I always love trying out new products!

  3. Great post! I have really watery eyes and I find that not many liners stay put on my waterline for long. I will give these ones a chance! :)

  4. Thanks for the list, Nancy! I always have trouble with eyeliner smudging on my waterline so I really seldom line my waterline, but I hope the Rimmel Scandaleyes one will be available soon in Malaysia so that I can try it out. XD

  5. Have you tried the NXY Slide On pencils? They are very similar to UD's 24/7 liners. I love their black shade "Jet" just as much as UD's "Zero".

  10. I'm definetly gonna get the Nude one from rimmel, it's the perfect beige to open up the eye :D

  11. Is the nude also usable as an under-eye concealer? I'm definitely getting my hands on the matte black. Also, pleaaaase do a liquid liner version of this post, would be greatly appreciated!

    1. Hmmm, I'm not sure about that. I think it is too thick and it would probably be too hard to blend out.
      And sure! I will definitely do one for liquid liner :D

  12. I'm really wanting the two rimmel ones, especially the nude, I have been looking for a good one. Is the rimmel sparkling black similar to the MAC pearlglide one?

    1. I know it is almost a dead on dupe for the Pearglide in 'Black Swan' but that is the only MAC Pearlglide I've tried! I hope that helps.

  13. That Urban Decay one sounds like just what I need since I'm constantly having to reapply eyeliner to my waterline. Plus, I like that it looks pretty matte and not shimmery or "wet," which is preferable to me.

  14. I love the Rimmel liners, some of the best value for money pencils I've ever had.

  15. i was really bummed when i bought perversion for my waterline but it doesn't stay very well for me! so far my favorites are kat von d's puro amor pencil or stila's smudge stick in stingray!! [or pretty much any color of the smudge stick

  19. this is a fantastic post! I personally use a liner from Covergirl on my waterline most of the time, but Perversion is great, also. And I may have to try one of these others when my current one runs out! :)
