The Feline Flick, £24 | Charlotte Tilbury

Best For: A Waterproof Formula

Longwearing, ultra-black and matte, this is the perfect all-rounder. With a mid-size nib, this pen can achieve kitten flicks and bolder cat eyes  – plus it’s waterproof, so it will last all night. It dries quickly, too, so if you’re not a liner expert, it’s worth keeping a cotton bud and some make-up remover handy to sharpen up your line.

Tattoo Liner Trooper, £16.80 (was £21) | KVD Beauty

Best For: A Bold Look

Like it says on the tin, this liner really does stay put. With a fine tip and a high-pigment formula, this is the perfect product if you want to create a long lasting and bold winged liner look. It comes in two shades – a dark black and a slightly muted brown – so it can work for both day and night.

Satin Kajal Liner, £26 | Victoria Beckham Beauty

Best For: Versatility

For those who struggle to create a defined flick and need the time to blend, shape and sketch out the perfect line, a kajal-style kohl pencil is a far more versatile choice. This one’s creamy texture means you can sketch a little wing, go in with a brush and tidy things up – or smoke things out for a more lived-in look.

Roller Liner Matte Liquid Eyeliner, £14 (was £20.50) | Benefit

Best For: A Classic Cat Eye

A classic, this liner is a favourite among make-up artists. Not too thin or thick and with a malleable formula, even a novice can use this product. Start by drawing out a wing before going in with another coat to build up the colour and set things in place. The nib is very flexible, so you can intensify or thicken the result depending on how hard you press.

Brushstroke Liner, £20 | MAC Cosmetics

Best For: Delicate Kitten Flicks

A viral trend on TikTok, a kitten flick (as opposed to a full cat-eye wing) offers a far more subtle take. This ultrafine liner is the perfect tool – with its longwearing, sweat-proof formula, it’s one that won’t budge. While it has a pigmented colour payoff, it’s not ridiculously hard to remove or clean up if you don’t get your flicks perfect the first time round.

Clean Line Gel Liner, £24 | ILIA

Best For: Precision & Control

With a clean formula designed for sensitive eyes – as well as an easy-to-use twist-nib function – we love how easy this liner is to use. Whether you’re adding some depth to your waterline or sketching out a simple flick, the gel formula goes on effortlessly, without an overly smokey feel.
