Tried and tested: Liquid liners

Want to tap into this season’s graphic eyeliner trend? Try one of these liquid liners...

BareMinerals Lash Domination Ink Liner, €21

“If you’re into winged liner, this easy-to-master pen is a great tool to achieve precise lines — thick or thin. 

"From day-to-drama, its pigment- dispersion system allows for easy application, but make sure you let it dry properly, as the thin formula can prove a little tacky while wet.”


Soap & Glory Supercat Skinny Easy Precision Eyeliner, €8.50

“I generally find eyeliners tricky to use, but this slimline pen gave an even distribution of liquid on application, making cat-eye flicks easy, even for a novice. 

"The line stayed put all day and I just needed a quick touch-up for evening.”


Maybelline Master Precise Curvy Eye Liner, €8.99

“Perfect for a full-on cat-eye look, this wand is more like a felt-tip, which allows for greater precision and the liner is really long-lasting. 

For a subtle daytime look, the teardrop-shaped tip helps you achieve a smaller flick, without too much excess liquid or smudges.”


All available in Boots.
