Liquid Vs. Pencil Eyeliners - Which Is Best?

When it comes to choosing between liquid and pencil eyeliner, the decision often boils down to personal preference and the desired look. Both types of eyeliner have their own unique benefits and applications that cater to different makeup styles.  Team Mirabella is here to help you choose which is best for you while discussing key factors of each eyeliner type.

Liquid eyeliner, like Mirabella's Magic Marker Eyeliner, is the go-to choice for those seeking precise, sharp lines and intricate looks. Its fine tip allows for detailed application, making it perfect for creating winged eyeliner or graphic designs. On the other hand, pencil eyeliner falls short in creating the same level of sharpness as liquid eyeliner due to its thicker and softer texture.

Mirabella's Eye Definer pencil eyeliner shines when it comes to creating smudged and smoky eye looks. Its creamy formula is easy to blend, making it ideal for achieving a sultry, lived-in effect. In contrast, liquid eyeliner sets quickly and is less likely to smudge or fade throughout the day, making it a great choice for long-lasting wear.

Many makeup enthusiasts find pencil eyeliner easier to apply than liquid eyeliner. The soft texture of pencil eyeliner glides smoothly along the lash line, making it a beginner-friendly option for those new to eyeliner application. Liquid eyeliner, with its precise tip and quick-drying formula, requires a steadier hand and more practice to master.


When it comes to longevity, both Mirabella's pencil and liquid eyeliners take the crown. Both feature water resistant formulas that ensure your eyeliner stays put all day without fading or smearing to maintain its intensity.


Pencil eyeliner is often the preferred choice for lining the waterline due to its softer texture and gentle application. Many makeup artists opt for pencil eyeliner on the waterline to create a more natural and subtle look. Liquid eyeliner, with its sharp precision and long-lasting formula, is better suited for creating bold lines on the upper lash line.
