Top Gel Liners

Pencils and liquids and gels-oh my! Liner comes in many forms and it just comes down to what you like working with and what type of look you’re creating. Gel liners are great for creating perfectly-winged out cat eyes, for using as a shadow base all over the lid to change the color depth of powder shadows or for creating a sooty smoky eye. You’ll just need a great brush to pair with your liner. I’ll list those below for you. Here are 9 gel liner picks, at a variety of price points!

Can’t go wrong here. 2. Smashbox Jet Set Waterproof Eye Liner If you’ve got watery eyes and/or oily lids, a waterproof gel like this is the ticket. 3. Sonia Kashuk Dramatically Defining Long Wear Gel Liner This is lasting and doesn’t dry out. Pick some up the next time you’re grabbing some goodies in your red cart! 5. Root Pretty All Day Gel Liner If you find some gel liners are like a slip n’ slide to work with, this has a unique consistency that I would describe as more clay-like. This allows for you to carefully create the line you want and it also lasts and lasts! 8. Sigma Standout Eyes Wicked Black Gel Liner I like that this is paraben-free and available in 5 colors! 9. L’Oreal Paris Infallible Lacquer Eyeliner This is so smooth and I go back and forth about whether it’s almost too smooth? It doesn’t last as long as I’d like but I really like working with it. Don’t bother with the included brush though. Use it for a lip brush instead!

See it in action here. 7. LORAC Pro Cream Eyeliner I love how this glides on without dragging or tugging. And yes, I know it says cream but basically the same as a gel liner but easier to apply due to it’s texture! See it in action here. Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner This is the happy medium of textures. Not too slippery, not too dry. I mentioned it here.
