Summer is almost here! This means that it’s that time to start looking for a good black eyeliner that doesn’t move, smudge or fade! Of course you can skip eyeliner all together when it’s hot, but if you’re like me and obsessed with black eyeliner, a good waterproof liquid liner is a summer essential. Here are my favorite waterproof and sweat-proof picks for creating the best cat eyeliner, despite the heat.
My all-time favorite eyeliner is Urban Decay’s 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in the shade ‘Perversion’ (black). It’s waterproof and super pigmented: it’s really, really black and shiny. It’s very long-lasting, even on my oily lids it lasts all day until I remove it at night with an oil-based makeup remover. I’ve been using this liner for years. Love it! You can find it at Urban Decay’s website, Ulta and Sephora and it retails for $18.
My second favorite eyeliner right now is the Bombshell Intensity Liner by CoverGirl in the shade ‘Pitch Black Passion’. This eyeliner is also extremely black and long-lasting. Not as waterproof and smudge-proof as Urban Decay’s, but still a very good liner for Summer! Inexpensive too! Found at drugstores and mass-retailers in the US, retails for around $6.
An eyeliner that is not in stores yet, but is highly anticipated by all and is said to be perfect for Summer is the They’re Real Push-Up Liner by Benefit. This is how Benefit describes their upcoming eyeliner:
Introducing the FIRST EVER… lash-hugging gel liner in a pen! It solves one of the biggest beauty dilemmas of all time—lining your eyes! They’re real! push-up liner makes it beyond easy to hug the lashline so anyone can draw a perfect line. The closer the line, the bigger the eye!
3 reasons it’s a Real beauty breakthrough
1. The waterproof matte black gel formula doesn’t smudge, budge or dry out.
2. It’s a gel liner in a pen!
3. The innovative AccuFlex tip makes it BEYOND EASY to get close to your lashline!
Sounds good, right? Benefit’s They’re Real Push-Up Liner will be available at the end of June on Benefit’s website and at Sephora. Can’t wait to try it! I will let you know my thoughts when I do, of course.
