Perfect Liquid Eye Liner?

global goddess, liquid eye liner, eyeliner, kohl
I'm not sure why, but for some reason I've gotten the same question about 4 or 5 times in the last month. What is my favorite liquid eyeliner? I have to remind everyone here that there's a reason the site is named 15 Minute Beauty Fanatic. I don't give myself a lot of time in the morning, and if a product requires too much time to work properly, I'm likely to either give it away or just throw it out.

For liquid eye liner I have a few requirements beyond quick and easy.
1) I want the line to be easy to control, I want the brush/pen to be thin, not bend easily and easy to get into my lash line.
2) It must last all day without smudges or other issues
3) The color must be worthwhile. None of those blacks that are not quite black.

So, here is my list of favorite liquid eyeliners. This is by no means comprehensive (yes, it is only 2 items long. Yes, I have tried most brands at your local department store or Sephora. No, this is not a mistake!), it only shows what I've tried out myself with great results. Feel free to share your finds in the comments!

Global Goddess Cairo Eyes: I love the brush on this eyeliner. It is very easy to control, gives you a great looking line and the black is "black" but there are also fun colors like their Iteru (blue) shade!

Cover Girl Line Exact: This pen is super easy to use and I like the selection of color available such as Very Black and Black Brown. Easy to find anywhere!

I love liquid eyeliner, but it takes me forever to get a good line.

i have been using lancome liquid eyeliner forever, literally since middle school. it stays on, doesnt budge and you can make the line as thin or as thick as you like.

My favorite for now is by L'Oreal! Also easy to apply and control, gives a nice smooth line, doesn't smudge!

I use, surpriisingly, wet n' wild liquid eyeliner. It actually works quite well and I love the fact that it's cheap! It comes in a variety of colors, the black is true black, and I was able to use it well for a photo shoot. So I like the fact that I don't have to spend a ton of money on it

You should try the liquid liner from Palladio (you can get it at Sally Beauty) if you're looking for ease ... They have felt tips that are super sturdy so it's really easy to draw QUICK, fine lines ... and there's about 12 different colors.
