For a liquid eyeliner to be considered phenomenal, there are many boxes it has to check. The formula of the product has to be packed with pigment, long-lasting and smudge-proof, and the tip, whether brush or felt depending on your level of artistry, isn’t supposed to fray or splay as you line your eyes. Regardless of how much you’re willing to spend, we’ve rounded up some of our favourites for you, all for under RM100.
Kat Von D Tattoo Liner (RM99) – This cult favourite tops our list as the most pricey, but the high-pigment, waterproof liner won’t fail you. What we love about it most is its fine but firm brush tip that really makes lining the eyes goofproof.
Tarte Sex Kitten Eyeliner Black (RM87) – Aside from the fact that the packaging is oh so adorable, the formula is pretty dang awesome too as it is smudge-proof, waterproof, is ultra black and even contains castor oil to aid lash growth.
D.UP Silky Liquid Eyeliner (RM69.90) – We’ve never had a disappointment with anything from D.UP and this liquid liner is no exception. The formula has a tiny hint of sheen, and it gets easier to use with time when it gets less watery.
The Body Shop Skinny Felt Black Eyeliner (RM65) – Enriched with Community Fair Trade Camomile Water from Norfolk, this is one of The Body Shop’s best-selling makeup products that features a fine felt tip for ultimate precision.
Sephora Collection Colorful Liquid Liner (RM60) – The ergonomically shaped packaging eases application, whereas the long-lasting and pigmented formula comes in an entire array of shades and two finishes – matte and pearlescent.
3CE Super Slim Pen Eyeliner (RM51) – If you’re looking for an affordable dupe for the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner, this is a great alternative, thanks to its defined brush tip and similar consistency in formula.
L’Oreal Superliner Ultra Sharp Liner (RM42.25) – With an ultra thin tip spanning only 0.8mm, the eyeliner claims to be smudge-proof, water-resistant and offers a wear of up to 24 hours.
Silky Girl Perfect Sharp Eyeliner (RM21.90) – Look no further than the Silky Girl Perfect Sharp Eyeliner for a smooth, calligraphy-like application due to its ultra-fine tip that is effortless to maneuver.
