Eyeliner is a great way to add definition and shape to your eyes. It's also a great way to make your eyes pop and stand out. If you have sensitive eyes, though, it can be difficult to find a good eyeliner that won't result in redness or itchiness. Here are some of the best eyeliners for sensitive eyes.
I bought the mulberry fig and it's so easy to line your eyes. Such a pretty color for my dark brown eyes. ...So eyeliner is all that defines my eyes. This does a great job!
What it is:
An eyeliner pencil that combines the creamy bendability of a kohl, with the intense, high coverage, long wearing pigment of a gel.
What it does:
Ciaté London’s Wonderwand Gel-kohl Eyeliner Pencil is built to give you a number of liner options. Create a precise line for defined perfection, or smudge it out using the built-in blending brush for a more sultry, smoked-out eye look. Its unique, hybrid formula performs like a kohl because it’s incredibly easy to apply and remains smudgeable long enough for you to blend it out as desired. Once it sets, it provides the longevity and staying power of a gel.

It's bold and the sharpener on the other end makes a cat-eye really easy. This is my new favorite eyeliner!...I received this eyeliner for free from Influenster.

Repurchasing since I love this eyeliner...The pencil isn't sharp enough to do a precise eyeliner look without a brush, and I think it works much better to make a smokey eye....Love how smooth this eyeliner goes on.
