#1 Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner ($25) in Black Ink
Drumroll, please… Widely acclaimed, award-winning, and much-loved, Bobbi Brown’s Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner is the most popular long-wear eyeliner on the Internet. We’re not even a little bit surprised—not only does this liner last 12 hours, but it’s waterproof and sweat resistant, too (a godsend for your GNO dance parties). Plus, it gives you just the right amount of time to perfect your flick before it dries and sets in place. No more pulling your hair out for every time you need to start over.
