What We Looked For?

Longevity

Whether you want an eyeliner pencil to last throughout your workday or night out, a great brown eyeliner pencil should not budge. They can endure teary heartfelt moments or hot humid summer nights. Ideally, you want to select an eyeliner that is waterproof and/or water-resistant.

Opacity

Nobody likes dull eyeliner. Especially brown eyeliner, where we want rich colors to enhance our eye color or makeup look. Dark brown should be dark and pigmented to provide intensity without the harshness of black eyeliner. Light brown eyeliner will highlight gold eyeshadow looks, or provide subtle smokiness.
