2011 Editor’s Choice Awards – Part 2: Eyes
Whew! I added a few more categories this year, partially based on readers’ suggestions over the year but also in response to commonly asked questions (what’s your favorite x, favorite y, etc.!).
URBAN DECAY 24/7 GLIDE-ON PENCIL
Best Pencil Eyeliner (High-End)
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils wear well, apply softly and smoothly, and come in a variety of colors. I love the shade range as well as the texture! (See my review here.)
Past Winners: Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Pencil (2008, 2009)
MILANI LIQUIF’EYE EYELINER
Best Pencil Eyeliner (Budget)
Milani’s Liquif’Eye Eyeliners have such a soft, creamy texture paired with excellent pigmentation and long-wearing prowess, they’re impossible not to love. Here’s hoping for more shades in 2011! (See my review here.)
Past Winners: L’Oreal HIP Chrome Eyeliner (2009)
Best Gel Eyeliner (High-End)
Fluidlines have that smooth, rich consistency of gel eyeliner and apply seamlessly. They don’t smudge, budge, or fade at all. I love how pigmented they are, because you can do a thick or thin line and always get great, consistent results.
Past Winners: MAC Fluidline (2009)
WET ‘N’ WILD MEGAEYES CREME LINER
Best Gel Eyeliner (Budget)
MegaEyes Creme Liners are affordable and apply smoothly with nice color pay off and no dragging or patchiness.
Past Winners: Sonia Kashuk Gel Eyeliner (2009)
