L’Oréal Paris Extra-Intense Liquid Pencil Eyeliner in Black ($9 at drugstores)—surprisingly, not in brown or plum or any other softer, seemingly more wearable color—was a standout for
its ability to create a deep, smoky statement eye that was more charcoal than jet.
Lancôme Artliner EyeLiner in Noir ($30.50, lancome-usa.com) won accolades for being the most user-friendly liquid liner in everyone’s favorite hue. The foam tip can be held horizontally and gently pressed along the lash lines so lashes look naturally thicker.
