When it comes to eyeliner, there are a handful of things you probably look for before committing. Is the color superpigmented? Is it specially made for long-lasting wear? Is the formula smudge-proof? These are all things that are essential to creating a look you'll love and for that pencil or marker to earn a permanent spot in your cosmetics bag.
Luckily, POPSUGAR beauty editors have tried dozens of eyeliners throughout their careers and have loads of favorites in gel, liquid, and pencil varieties. While the most of the ones on this list are dark, inky black shades like the Rare Beauty Perfect Strokes Matte Liquid Liner, many of them, like the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil, come in a bevy of hues.
Ahead, you're sure to find an eyeliner that you'll fall in love with and might even become your long-term pick.
