Uncovering the best eyeliner takes patience, and most times, lots of errors. When testing liners to add to your collection, each one should undergo extensive testing that determines its smudge risk, stay power, competency to create a cat-eye, and most importantly, color payoff. One eyeliner that passed all tests with flying colors is one of the best out there, according to Sephora shoppers.
The Huda Beauty Life Liner is a double-ended eyeliner that has both liquid and pencil options. The liquid formula is easy to apply — it glides on seamlessly with a dark coat that you don’t need to repeatedly go over and dries quickly so you can move through your makeup routine without waiting for it to dry.
The pencil portion of the eyeliner also offers a flawless application, creating creamy lines that look structured, precise, and bold. “Buy it,” one Sephora shopper recommends. “It’s extra-inky, extra-black, and stay-proof.”

One of the best features of this dual eyeliner is its stay-proof power. Typically with liquid eyeliners, smudging and transfers happen, but with this double-ended option, you don’t have to worry. The formula does not budge, even when you use the liquid side and the pencil end also has the same ability to stay on without smearing all over your eye.
A shopper says the eyeliner “would stay on during the apocalypse,” and honestly, that’s how all eyeliners should be. “I just danced like my life depended on it at a Florida nightclub for 5 hours and not a smudge. I drew on my wing this morning, and even my shower 10 hours later couldn’t budge this magic. I received numerous compliments all night and I knew it was all because of this bad boy.”
“Insane,” another reviewer exclaimed. “I am IN LOVE with this eyeliner! The liquid end is definitely the best. This stuff stays on forever and I had it [on] for the entire day without any smudging or flaking. The liquid also has quite a fine applicator that is stiff enough to create the sharpest wing, but just flexible enough to make a gorgeous curve tightly along your lash line.”
