Five Liquid Liners for watery eyes and oily lids

Liquid Liners for watery eyes and oily lids
The Beauty Bakerie Eye liner was kindly sent to me.

I've mentioned before that I have the delightful combination of dry skin, oily lids and watery eyes, which means that my eye makeup products need to work extra hard and I'm extremely fussy abut what I use. I've tried so many liners on the market - some start out well but within a few hours have either disappeared, smudged or flaked off and it always tends to be on one eye more than the other, for some strange reason. Part of the reason that I love lash extensions so much is that I don't bother using liquid liner when I have them as the lashes give my eyes enough definition, but without the lashes (as I have been since lockdown started), I feel naked without some liner. I always wear mascara that gives dramatic, voluminous lashes and I use lash serum, which has made a huge difference to them, but I've worn liquid liner since I was around 16/17 so it's jut part of me now. Given that I've had to go back to wearing liners, I thought I'd buy some new ones as the two I had were almost finished anyway and with having such sensitive eyes, I have to bin my liners every few months. I thought I'd share my top five with you today, one of which will come as no surprise as it has featured on the blog many times!

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner: Regular readers will know that I am a massive fan of this liner and have repurchased it more times than I can remember, which speaks volumes as to how much I love it. It ticks all of the boxes for me - it's got a very fine nib, it's very black, I can get right into the inner corner of my lid but I can also build if I want a more dramatic look. It doesn't flake or smudge and, most importantly, it's long-lasting. What I also love is that it doesn't require lots of rubbing or tugging on the eye area to remove it. It is available in a number of shades but I always wear black. Use the code LYMIN at checkout to receive a 20% discount.

Beauty Bakerie Lollipop Liners*: I received this in a PR package from Look Fantastic before Christmas, as part of a gift set and was immediately impressed by how fine the nib was as I knew that if I wanted to do a very fine line, which would just add some definition to my lashes, I could. I also found it very useful when my lash extensions started to fall out as I could fill in the gaps. Again, it ticks all of the boxes for me - very black, long-wearing, non-smudgy and easy to remove. I also really like the gold packaging. 

Pat McGrath Perma Precision Liquid Eyeliner: The Queen of Makeup had a sale recently and I bought this and her mascara in a set. As with all of Pat's products, this is expensive but worth it. It has a flexible tip, which I wasn't sure what I would think of initially, however I LOVE IT! If you have small eyes, hooded lids or even just lids that aren't as firm as they used to be, this liner enables you to create a fine line or build up to a complete cat flick, with ease. It might just be my new favourite liquid liner - very black, doesn't smudge, doesn't flake and is budge-proof until removed, which doesn't require a great deal of effort.

Code8 Precision Liquid Eyeliner: Another luxe brand, another expensive liner! This one also has a slightly flexible tip, although not quite the same as the above one. It applies with ease, however my issue with it is that it isn't black enough for my taste but that might be the reason that it suits others perfectly. That said, it is buildable and it is long-lasting so if you prefer a subtle look to your eyeliner (for daywear or if you find very black makes you look tired), you will like this but it's not one that I would repurchase.

Fenty Beauty Flyliner Longwear Liquid Eyeliner Cuz I'm Black: I think I have raved abut this liner on here before - I love it! It's very black, easy to use, long-wearing and easy to remove, plus I love the packaging as the angled pen makes it easier to hold. It's one I will definitely repurchase.

You cannot go wrong with any of these liners if you have watery eyes and oily lids. Which you choose, depends on budget, how proficient you are at using liquid liner and how black you want it to be.

Are you a fan of liquid liner? I would love to hear your favourites and if you have any recommendations for me?
