Eyeliner may not be the first thing we reach for on a sweltering summer morning (lest all the work we put into it melt off) — but it's a whole other story after dark. We like to pull out all the stops once the sun goes down. We're talking cat-eyes, metallic eyeshadow, and liquid or gel liners. But with so many liner options on the market, finding the right one can be overwhelming. If you're still on the hunt for the best gel liner, look no further. Rank & Style has the scoop on which one is actually worth your hard-earned cash. The site uses customer reviews, editors' picks, and overall buzz to figure out which products are going to work the hardest for you. Consider its authors beauty lovers with a penchant for math. After crunching the numbers, Rank & Style has named Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner the winner. This liner gets the gold because it's insanely popular, reigns supreme with editors, and has garnered some great user reviews. On Nordstrom.com, user Julesa says: "This eyeliner stays on ALL DAY LONG. I am always amazed...my shadow and other stuff will fade, but this stays. I have had to practice a little bit to get it on not too thick or clumpy, but once you get the hang of it, you'll never go back to other liners... And you don't have to use much, so you will have this for a long time!" We're fans because of its wide color range and ability to stay put — even during an all-night dance session. Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner, $22.50, available at Nordstrom.
