Being the beauty addicts that we are, we love trying beauty products and testing them for performance, how they look and their ability to last throughout the day. While most top beauty brands all over the world would have at least one eyeliner (or a selection of them) in their collection of products, Japanese brands are prolific in creating new types of eyeliner formulations.

With the focus that Japanese makeup puts on the eyes, it’s no surprise that there’s a vast variety of eyeliner brands and formulas to meet different needs. And with such a large market due to this demand, the top Japanese brands are hard at work creating better formulas each time.

Let’s take a look at our favourites!

Pencil eyeliners are:

  • Light and easy to apply
  • Able to produce a soft and natural line
  • Smudgeable – good if you are trying to achieve a feathered or smoky effect, or if you need to correct mistakes
  • BUT: Tend to fade more easily than the other types of liners

1. Pencil: Dejavu Lasting-fine S Pencil, RM49.90

The silicone fixer in this formulation allows for smooth application that stays put once it dries. The slim size and fine nib allows for easy control and application, making this a favourite for those who prefer a more subtly-defined eye.
