One way to achieve instant glamour is by drawing a cat-eye liquid line along your lashes. Pair with an iridescent eye shadow and a ruby red lip for added drama. Racked trendwatcher Donna Kim picks six of her favorite liquid eyeliners that are in stores now.

1. Nars “Stylo” eyeliner, $27 at Just like a fine-tip Sharpie, this liquid eyeliner pen is for those who prefer a thin and precise line above the lid.

2. Estée Lauder double wear zero smudge liquid eyeliner, $20 at Available in black and chocolate brown, the paint-brush like applicator makes it simple to apply a long lasting and smudge-free look.

3. Benefit “Magic Ink” $20 at A fierce jet-black liquid formula that requires only one sweep for a dramatic cat-eye.

4. “Parad’eyes” fluid eyeliner, $27 at Givenchy: The short and fine tip of Givenchy’s eyeliner will give precise and accurate lining and is available in three midnight colors.

5. E.L.F liquid eyeliner pen case, $3 at The pen case includes three liquid eyeliners in noir, mahogany, and gleaming silver—the ultimate set to achieving dazzling eyelids.

6. Chantecaille “Le Stylo” liquid eyeliner, $26 at Resembling a classic calligraphy brush, the tip provides accurate and easy application for a striking eye.
