The 16 Best Eyeliners That Are Perfect For Oily Eyelids

Women with oily lids rejoice - these are the best eyeliners that will stay put on your lids throughout the day.

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

#1: Nars High-Pigment Longwear Eyeliner in Via Veneto
Part of the Nars Fall/Winter 2019 edit that’ll be dropping in stores this August, this blendable, gel-like formula glides on with ease and instantly deposits rich colour that sets exactly where you want it to. It’s a versatile liner that perfects a precise line. Smudge out for a smoky effect or apply in your waterline. #2: Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Intense Black, $32, Sephora
We don’t think that this one needs any further introduction but this best-seller from Stila really does last all day on the lids. We’re also a fan of its thin felt-tip as it allows for freedom when it comes to controlling the thickness of our lines. #3: Tom Ford Beauty Emotionproof Eyeliner in 01 Dominateur, $62
Long-wearing, transfer-resistant, weatherproof, intense, and richly pigmented, this eyeliner glides seamlessly onto your eyelids. The skin around of eyes are the most delicate, so we’d naturally be for gentle application coupled with pigmented colour payoff. #4: VDIVOV Eye Cut Liquid Liner
If you weren’t already aware, VDIVOV is popular K-beauty brand The Face Shop’s professional makeup line. We can appreciate this ultra-thin liner tip which allows for easy access to even the finest crevices of our eyes.   #5: 3CE Super Slim Pen Eyeliner in Black, $20, Sephora
Much like the velvet lip tints from the cult Korean beauty brand, this slim eyeliner is a crowd favourite because it gets the job done and for a fairly wallet-friendly price tag. #6: Benefit Cosmetics Roller Liner Black Liquid Eyeliner, $21
Any beauty lover would know that Benefit is synonymous with its star product that delivers luscious, voluminous lashes – the Roller Lash. So you’d already expect that the liner will not disappoint. This one has a matte finish, but it still looks natural and lasts all day. #7: Marc Jacobs Beauty Magic Marc'er Precision Pen Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Blacquer, $44
And if you’re feeling a little dramatic, perfect your stunning cat eye flicks with this Marc Jacobs liquid liner that dries to a shiny, glossy finish. #8: Tarte Kitten Liner, $31,, Sephora
Said to provide intensely pigmented lines that will withstand 12 hours of wear, this liner is also rich in fatty acids and moisture-balancing glycerin. That translates to it nourishing and hydrating the skin around the lash lines while still serving snatched wings. #9: 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. #10: 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.   #11: 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. #12: 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). #13: 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.   #14: Diorshow Pro Liner, $37
The gel-textured liner has a bevelled 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. Used vertically, it creates a thick, bold line that’s great for creating cat eyes. 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. #15: YSL Beaute Eyeliner Effet Faux Cils, $45
This has a calligraphy-inspired tip and water-based formula that glides on smoothly for easy application. It supposedly gives 12-hour wear and has a water-resistant formula that doesn’t flake. #16: By Terry Ligne Blackstar No. 1, $60, Escentials
A waterproof liquid eyeliner, it has a felt tip with gentle aqua-emulsion ink that can create both fine or diagonal lines. It also has carbon black pigmented microparticles to give high-impact, deep and luminous colour.
