Cov­etable eye­lin­ers to make your peep­ers pop!

A swipe, a smudge or a sub­tle stroke of the right eye-defin­ing prod­uct will add in­stant al­lure to your best fea­ture. But how do you pick the right one for you? Well, it de­pends on the for­mula and fin­ish you’re af­ter.

Here are our top picks and what they of­fer.

1. Stila’s Stay All Day Water­proof Liq­uid Eye Liner, $31, is a best­seller for good rea­son. The flex­i­ble tip cre­ates clean cat-eye flicks that dry in­stantly and won’t smudge or run. 2. Rim­mel’s Soft Kohl Ka­jal Eye Liner Pen­cil, $8.95, has a soft, mois­tur­is­ing for­mula that won’t pull on the del­i­cate skin around your eyes.

3. Kevyn Au­coin’s The Pre­ci­sion Eye De­finer, $46, is a self-sharp­en­ing crayon pen­cil that’s a breeze to ap­ply. Try the clas­sic brown tone, Ko­bicha, when you need a break from black.

4. A go-to for oily lids, Tarte’s Ama­zo­nian Clay Pot Water­proof Eye­liner, $28, ab­sorbs ex­cess oil and won’t slip or slide through­out the day.

5. Clar­ins’ 3-Dot Liner, $40, has a unique three-pronged tip to ac­cen­tu­ate your eye­lashes by dot­ting the gaps be­tween them. It’s sub­tle and ge­nius.

6. If you like gel lin­ers for their colour pay-off and stay­ing power but find the ap­pli­ca­tion tricky, then you’ll love Marc Ja­cobs High­liner Matte Gel Eye Crayon, $36.

7. Na­tio De­fine Eye Pen­cil, $13.95, is made from nat­u­ral in­gre­di­ents, like jo­joba and vi­ta­min E, mak­ing it ideal for those with sen­si­tive eyes.

8. Bobbi Brown Long-wear Gel Eye­liner, $38, wears as well as liq­uid eye­liner but is eas­ier to ap­ply and also sweat-and hu­mid­ity-proof.

9. In­fused with nour­ish­ing jo­joba oil, Ur­ban De­cay’s 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pen­cil, $33, glides on ef­fort­lessly. The award-win­ning for­mula comes in 23 highly pig­mented shades.

10. NYX Jumbo Eye Pen­cil, $9.95, is a creamy liner that dou­bles as an eye shadow. We like the uni­ver­sally flat­ter­ing cham­pagne colour, Cash­mere, for an in­stant bright­en­ing ef­fect. #
