Offers the best of both worlds: a creamy texture that's blendable and wear that lasts for up to 12 hours. Pencil is retractable and comes with its own built-in sharpener. Six bold, classic shades. Most users praise it for not smearing or transferring.
Sharpening to a precise point can be a bit tedious. Some shades have a shimmery finish, which won't appeal to everyone.
Has an extremely creamy texture that's easy to blend and doesn't tug or pull when you apply it. Great for creating a smoky eye look. Wood pencil is easy to sharpen. No phthalates, parabens, or sulfates. Available in two unique blue shades.
Smudges and transfers more easily than other NARS eyeliners. Doesn't hold up well to moisture.
A buildable formula with a slim, retractable tip that makes drawing fine lines close to the lashes easy. Black is very black and has a matte finish. Fairly soft kohl yet lasts for hours for most wearers. Not waterproof, but some users say it wears as if it is.
May smudge but typically not until many hours of wear. If you have oily skin, it may transfer throughout the day.
This liquid eyeliner is made to last and can provide up to 24 hours of wear. Dries fairly quickly. Pen has a fine felt-tip applicator that's designed for drawing crisp, dramatic winged eye looks. Matte black.
Slightly messy to apply and learning how to control it to create precise lines take a little trial and error.
An all-day liquid eyeliner that can be used to create a variety of detailed effects. The felt-tip applicator can easily be used to produce heavy or subtle looks.
Creates a somewhat shiny finish, unlike the comparable Koala. Prone to drying up quickly, even with the cap in place.

Rich color, smooth texture, and long wear – that’s what you’ll get when you define your eyes with a NARS eyeliner. They are highly pigmented for hues that pop and have precision tips that make application a breeze. You’ll also love how easily the brand’s eyeliners glide across your eyelids and how simple it is to smudge the shades for a smoky look. And with 12 to 24 hours of wear, you’ll be able to go from day to night with minimal touchups. NARS offers classic and self-sharpening pencil eyeliners, a kohl liner, and a felt-tip liquid pen that’s ideal for winged liner.
