9 Best Coloured Eyeliners That Are Highly Pigmented

If a full-bodied coloured eyeliner packed with pigment and long staying power is what you are looking for to keep up with the season’s makeup trends, there is certainly a lot on the market to choose from. We demand shades that are intense, concentrated, saturated with colour that shows up on our skin. Here are 9 best coloured eyeliners that are highly pigmented and suitable for dark skin tones.

SHISEIDO Kajal InkArtist Shadow, Liner, Brow, £22.00 ( 0.8g )

This 4-in-1 eye pencil acts as a liner, kajal, eyeshadow, and brow color. The smudge-proof, crease-proof, waterproof, and tear-proof formula provides high-impact pigment with an even glide and a featherweight feel. Its soft, graduated point is precise enough to create a thin, smooth band along the inner rim of the eye, and also wide enough to be easily swathed across the entire lid. A detachable sharpener maintains the tip for ultimate precision, while a built-in sponge can be used to blend for a seamless, smoky finish. Available in 10 shades inspired by ancient and modern Japan.

NYX PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP Slide On Pencil, £6.00 ( 1.2g )

NYX PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP Slide On Pencil, £6.00 ( 1.2g )

A soft pencil, it delivers the crisp, rich pigment of a liquid liner, while the steadfast formula glides on for a snag-free finish. It’s available in a number of colourful hues, as well as classic black and brilliant white.

MILK MAKEUP Long Wear Gel Eyeliner, £19.00 ( 0.28g )

The day-to-night formula stays true to its name – it is long-wear and waterproof, so you can finally strike trips to the loo for a touch up out of your daily routine. It glides onto lids seamlessly without snagging or cracking thanks to the addition of hydrating avocado oil and hyaluronic acid. Want a defined sharp line or a smoked-out eye? Have ‘em both. Each liner comes with a smudger and shaper so you can mix up your look to your heart’s content. The intensely pigmented formula is available in a variety of metallic and matte shades: blacker-than-black ‘Boss’, satin brown ‘CEO’, midnight blue ‘BIZ’, sparkly brown ‘Bonus’, sandy matte ‘BCC’ and holographic ‘PTO’.

CHARLOTTE TILBURY Rock 'n' Kohl, £19.00 ( 1.2g )

ZOEVA Graphic Eyes, £9.00 ( 1.2g )

Available in sixteen shades, ranging from glittery blue ‘Cool Factor’ via ‘After The Disco’ (a gorgeous shimmering gold), to the pearly beige of ‘Myth’ – as well as classic noir ‘Black To Earth’, the Graphic Eyes+ eyeliner is a great way to create statement eyes in an instant. The colour payoff is seriously incredibly rich – while the luscious formula doesn’t snag the skin.
