OUR BEST GEL EYELINERS OF 2021

ALL

Long the domain of pencils and awkward liquids, as soon as gel eyeliners popped up over the past decade, everything changed. Whereas before eyeliner was unpredictable, rigid and melty, gel made them pliant, versatile and long lasting. And gel eyeliners come in all kinds of forms. A neat little pencil! A multi-talented pot! They really changed the eye makeup game. Here are the ones you need, now.

BEST GEL EYELINER FOR A SMUDGED EYELINER LOOK: TATTOO STUDIO SMOKEY GEL PENCIL EYELINER

Gel is normally known for its precision, but this powder-in-gel formula blends easily, and dries to the diffused matte finish of your makeup artist dreams. Plus—despite its smudgy smolder, once in place it literally won’t budge, melt or transfer. Learn more about Tattoo Studio Smokey Gel Pencil Eyeliner here.

BEST GEL EYELINER FOR LONG LASTING WEAR: TATTOO STUDIO SHARPENABLE GEL PENCIL

Maybelline's longest wearing eyeliner yet - it lasts for up to 36 hours! Available in a ton of ultra-intense colors. Built in sharpener. Smooth on demand. Big eye options come out of this teeny wonder! When it comes to versatility, nothing beats this. Learn more about Tattoo Studio Sharpenable Gel Pencil here.

BEST GEL EYELINER FOR EXPERIMENTING: LASTING DRAMA GEL EYELINER

Makeup artists swear by this silky pot of inky color. You just need to be comfortable using an eyeliner brush. You are? Then great. This richly pigmented gel goes on skip-free and smooth and once set lasts up to 24 hours. No smudge, no budge, no nothing! Learn more about Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner here.

BEST GEL EYELINER FOR PRECISION: MASTER PRECISE SKINNY GEL PENCIL

Trace this teeny tiny pencil (just 1.8 mm!) right along the lash line and you won’t look like you’ve got eyeliner on—you’ll just look wide-eyed, long-lashed and naturally defined. It’s the best kept secret behind the “no makeup” look. Learn more about Master Precise Skinny Gel Pencil here.
