Trend // Colorful Liquid Liners

Recently I've been falling deeper and deeper into the hole of colored liquid eye liners. For years I've been a huge fan of the Maybelline Lash Stilleto, but I've recently (and happily) have been branching out. Looking for a way to make your makeup pop? Check these shades out.

I recently picked up (and coincidentally am curently wearing) Boots No. 7 Stay Perfect Liner in Sapphire. I get more compliments on this color than any other. It's under ten bucks and I kid you not — this stuff doesn't budge. I wear it primer free and by the end of the day, I still have to work at it to get it off. The tricky part is the application process. While the formula is very thick, it has a small brush for easy application. With the shape of my eyes, I have to wait patiently while it dries so that I don't get a crease at my corners. I highly recommend this if you're looking to get into colors (and I think it would look amazing on darker skin tones!). It was an easy find for me at Target!

I have the Stila Sparkle Waterproof Eyeliner in Starry (which is a brownish grey color) and it has great staying power. It was part of the June Birchbox! I'd love to try out the Electric shade, which is amore of a sparkly teal. It comes in a wide array of colors and will set you back around $22. See more photos and swatches on the line over at Temptalia!

I am obsessed with this color! I saw a great winged red liner a couple months ago on Tumblr (I think that's what actually sparked my interest) and this pink by Urban Decay — 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Liner in Woodstock — is so close it hurts! Again, at $19, it won't break the bank and the reviews are very good. There are eleven different colors to choose from, including a nice gold that could really spice up your routine.

Fashionising doesn't specify exactly which yellow liner they used for this face, but the most inciting product I've found is W7 Neon Lights in Neon Yellow. It's very affordable, but I'm unable to find any reviews or swatches. Are any of my readers familiar with this brand — or possibly even another bright yellow liquid liner?

I always seen this brand at CVS and have been hesitant to pick it up because I haven't been a fan of their nail polish consistency (except the glitters). After seeing these swatches however, I'm ready to swoop up the Milani Infinite Liquid Eyeliner in Forever. This bronze-gold color would be amazing for the end of summer and leading into fall! You can pick up any of these liners for under ten dollars at your local drugstore.

I got the purple Eyeko Skinny Liquid Liner in my Birchbox and the quality is really fantastic. Since receiving this brand, I'm dying to try it in Olive and Turquoise!

And lastly, a company that I'm not necessarily interested in promoting, but the reviews for their color liners are very good despite the fact that they are a bit shady and disrespectful (I'll leave it up to my readers to decide on your own how you feel about them!). Jangsara reviews and swatches all of the Lime Crime Eyeliner collection and they are honestly very beautiful. I still can't convince myself to buy from them again, but like I said — it's up to you to decide!

Are there any liquid liners that you absolutely love?
