The 5 Best Long-Lasting Eyeliners For Smudge-Free Eye Art

Beauty artists that we are, we've been known to try some pretty ambitious swoops, slashes, and swipes with our creative eyeliner applications. But we need the right tools to make these masterpieces, so we can't stand eyeliners that don't stay put. There's little more frustrating than finally perfecting your cat-eye, only to have it smudge off a hot second later.
Long-lasting eyeliners solve that slippage issue without restraining your inner artiste. Over the years (and many failed pencils) we've found a few that truly go the distance, preventing greasy creases even as the mercury rises to triple-digit temps. Here, are the five beautiful, durable pencils — some brand new, some classic — we consider the best of the best.
