Looking for the crème de la crème from our assortment? Our customers have got you covered! For this year’s edition of Customer Picks, we’re going through the best-reviewed basics of 2018. From MLBB lipsticks to health-boosting pantry staples, these are the products that any beauty and wellness junkie would be lost without. In the eighteenth installment of this series, we’ve got our sights set on the best of eye makeup. While a little intimidating, beauty junkies who love their liners and mascaras swear it’s all easy-peasy once you find the right tools. Because cat-eyes never go out of style and doll lashes give us plenty of life, we’d totally be missing out if we skipped ‘em!

These 20 mascaras, shadows, liners and more show us why we shouldn’t have to, even if we’re total newbies. Pop some peachy shadow over your lids and finish with a flick—these products make it a breeze!

1. Maybelline Hypersharp Power Black Liner, P349 Katrina, 25: “I’m not an expert when it comes to makeup, and applying a cat-eye takes a lot of time. But this one makes it easy for me. I’m having this professional makeup artist vibe.”

2. Careline Graph-Ink Liner, P170 Maria, 18: “Although it doesn’t dry as fast, once it does dry up it won’t budge even after washing your face. The felt tip is soft, but not fragile compared to other brands. Even if I have heavy hands, the tip did not crumble nor break while I was trying to draw a wing.”

3. L.A. Girl Gel Liner, P319 Miriam, 28: “This was my first gel eyeliner and I was satisfied. Now that I’ve moved on to using an eyebrow palette, that first bottle is still in my makeup kit. Guess you really can’t let a good product go that easily.”

4. L’Oreal Paris Super Liner Gel Intenza, P400 Piel, 24: “I bought this in the shade Chic Brown and I’m in love! It’s the perfect shade to wear to school/work yet it’s still visible enough especially when layered. The brush is also soft enough that it doesn’t scratch my eye. This gel liner also lasts long even on my oily lids. Winner!”
