I can tell you all, after single handedly trying every single black liquid eyeliner on the market, the best drugstore eyeliner is Boots No 7 for $8.99 at Target. Boots is a UK company that has always been the best drugstore ever, in the history of ever and thank GOD they sell their products for us Americans at Target. It’s blackity-black, doesn’t flake and stays on. What more can you ask for?? Get yours here.
Again, I need to preface this by saying I am a Jersey Girl who popped out of the womb with black liquid liner and 6 inch pumps. With that said and deeply understood by you all, I give to you NYX Cosmetics’ The Curve. Wow. Should I be physically turned on by an eyeliner? Cuz I am. What I love about NYX (aside from the fact that they have been very, very good to drag queens and RuPaul’s Drag Race) is their products are mad cheap and the integrity is there. You can buy a wet n’ wild and it couldn’t hold a candle to NYX. There are some things by NYX I can’t do without ie; Pore Filler amongst others. This liner is ergonomically sound and makes lining your top lid effortless. This is a good liner for noobs. Get your own Curve here.
Just like that crazy Givenchy Phenomen’Eyes crazy looking sea anenome mascara was a hot trend for a second, now it’s all about the 3 prong liquid eyeliner. This one happens to be by Too Faced, which is a company I have loved for years and support their products, but a lot of companies are making them right now. The idea behind this new trend is 3 fold (obviously); First, you can take the 3 tips and dab the dots on the under side of your top lashes so it fills in the annoying area where it looks skin color when you want opaque black to complete the look. The next is the ability to turn it on it’s side for a tight line as the tips are flexible. The final is using it flat for the ability to use all 3 prongs for a wide line. Being the New Jersey, eyeliner whore that I am, I feel a need to try every single brand of liquid, cake or gel eyeliners that are ever created. Can’t wait to try some 3 prong madness!
