The 16 Best Eyeliners That Are Perfect For Oily Eyelids

Women with oily lids rejoice.

These eyeliners (from gel to pencil types) help to define your peepers without leaving any messy smudges even after a long day (you really don’t want to end up looking like a panda, right?). But if you plan to be out in the sun, apply an eyeshadow base beforehand to ensure your makeup stays in place.

#1: Pat McGrath Perma Precision Liquid Eyeliner, $44, Sephora
With a long-lasting formula that reportedly lasts for 24 hours, this is smudge and waterproof eyeliner is perfect for those living in hot and humid climates like Singapore. The soft, skinny flexi-art tip allows for ultimate flexibility for precise lines. #2: Laneige Finger Graphic Liner, $36
Cleverly designed to create the perfect grip for steady eyeliner application, this is definitely one of the most innovative eyeliners we have ever come across. But besides its design, the formula is also said to be sweat and water-resistant for long-lasting wear.   #3: Fenty Beauty Flyliner Longwear Liquid Eyeliner, $30, Sephora
This features a smart triangle shape that makes it easy to hold for beginners and pros alike. It also has a water-resistant formula that dries fast so it will not fade or transfer easily. #4: Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner, $45
Said to last for 12 hours, this smudge, sweat and humidity-resistant, non-transferring and waterproof eyeliner gives intense colour payoff that dries quickly for the perfect finish. #5: Kat Von D Tattoo Liner, $32, Sephora
Not only is it super pigmented, this comes with a waterproof formula that stays put all day without fading or melting off. The superfine and flexible brush tip glides across the lash line like a breeze and reportedly does not fray even after using it multiple times. #6: Urban Decay Perversion Waterproof Fine Point Eye Pen, $35
The ultra-fine tip glides on easily for an effortless application. It also features a cartridge system that allows for a constant flow of ink and a formula that dries down quickly and lasts all day (no smudging, running or feathering). #7: Heroine Make Colour Gel Eyeliner, $16.90, Watsons
With a water and smudge-proof formula, this features a smooth gliding tip that does not tug around the delicate eye area for smooth and easy application.  It is also made with hyaluronic acid, collagen, panthenol and chamomile to hydrate, soothe and calm irritation. #8: Shu Uemura Calligraph:ink, $58
This has a waterproof and sweat-proof formula that dries quickly on the skin and is said to last for up to 18 hours.   #9: Tom Ford High Definition Eye Liner, $56

The gel-textured liner has a beveled tip to allow you to use it both horizontally and vertically. When held horizontally, it creates a thin, precise line that hugs the curve of your lid.

The retractable tip doesn’t need any sharpening and gives the easy application of a pencil with the colour intensity and glide of a liquid liner. #12: YSL Beaute Eyeliner Effet Faux Cils, $45
