In our search for the best liquid eyeliner, we’ve tried a battalion of different formulas over the years. What it all boils down to is the perfect combination – a highly pigmented liquid that stays put and an applicator that makes drawing a line with a shaky hand as simple as colouring between the lines.
One thing’s for sure, Estée Lauder‘s new take on the Little Black Liner has helped us massively up our feline flick game. The clever design means you can create three different looks using just one tool – be it an ultra-fine, thin or thick line – which is particularly useful when it comes to the autumn/winter trend for graphic eyes.
You see, the fine-tipped end allows you to add a subtle line to your lids with the precision of a pro, then the ‘paddle-shaped’ end can be used on its thinner or thicker side – depending on whether you want a thick, bold line or simply want to add a little intensity to your lashes.
It’s waterproof and promises 12 hour wear – so won’t budge come rain or shine. As far as we’re concerned, it literally ticks every. single. box.
