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 pot to pencil types) help to define your pretty peepers and make you look much more awake without leaving any messy smudges behind. Yes, we’re talking about even after a long day out (because who really wants to end up looking like a panda, right?). Wear them to work, to after-work parties, on the weekends, and then some more. Pro tip: if you plan to be out in the sun, apply an eyeshadow base beforehand to ensure your eye 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. Laneige Edge Drawing Eyeliner Pen in Deep Black, $29
The tip of this eyeliner is shaped like a pen so that even beginners find it easy to use. Its quick-drying formula won’t smudge so you don’t have to be worried about it transferring onto your crease. 7. Benefit Cosmetics BADgal Bang! Pencil Eyeliner in Pitch Black, $35
Those with oily lids will probably shun away from liners that are creamy, but this one’s waterproof so there’s no cause for worry. Once applied, it sets to a transfer-resistant matte finish that’s said to have 24-hour staying power. The other end of the pencil features a smudger tip, so you can create smoky eyes as well. 8. Mac Cosmetics Liquid Last Liner in Point Black, $39
You know that struggle you face where you try to go over a line twice and the liner flakes off? That’s a thing of the past with this rich, black one that features a non-smudge, non-flake formula that also lasts all day. 9. Pretty Vulgar The Ink Gel Eyeliner in #01 Black List, $39, Sephora
Formulated with vitamin C that conditions the lids as you wear it, this fast-drying water-resistant gel eyeliner is said to glide onto the skin smoothly and evenly. 10. Clinique Pretty Easy Liquid Eyelining Pen, $40
This liner’s said to deliver the drama of a liquid eyeliner without the drama of putting it on. Translation: it’s tapered, precise brush paints on pigmented colours in just a single flick of the pen. 11. 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. 12. 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. 13. 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. 14. 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). 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.
