An award-winning, vegan, dual-ended eyeliner that has a waterproof black liquid formula on one side & a gel pencil on the other.

  • "I loveeee this! I used to use KVD tattoo liner as my go to but this has taken its place. The liquid liner has amazing pigmentation, it's so dark and fine. The other side is also black and doesn't smudge. I love this also because it's so convenient to have both in one " in 81 reviews
  • "Personally I love this product! I usually only use the gel/pencil side vs. the liquid because lately I have been going for a more natural look by just lining my water line;however both sides are incredible and last all day. This line of tarte is extremely pigmented which is great because that is what I look for in eyeliners and al of makeup products. I can't wait to try the rest of the line. Makeup bag essential!" in 24 reviews
  • "Tarte is one of my favorite makeup brands, they make some of the best quality products without being too pricey. This double take eyeliner is the perfect dual liner with both a pencil and a liquid liner that come on each end. It's such a great dual products, as with this one you can get that perfect cateye flick about as fast as you can line your waterline without having to grab another product. I like that this doesn't smudge like cheaper brands and comes with two caps to keep your product protected all at an affordable price. If you'd have to buy both a liquid and a pencil liner in a high end brand, you'd likely be spending around double the price of what this double take liner costs. I highly recommend this dual liner, it's both affordable and effective in achieving that sleek effortless super black line that you have struggled to get for so long, so what are you waiting for? Don't wait, Tarte double take eyeliner in black is calling your name!" in 23 reviews

This was the liner I switched to from the  Stila Stay All Day® Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner . It was inkier, darker, more pigmented, and glided on easier over my lids with just as good staying power. The accompanying pencil liner was an added bonus, as the small size was perfect for the waterline.

So why did I STOP using it? Because I was going through these things WAY too quickly! I was purchasing them faster than I'd ever purchased the Stila ones before, and it was primarily due to my use of the liquid liner - I had plenty of the pencil liner left and was beginning to collect just the pencil ends for use and was starting to think it was just getting too wasteful since I only really needed the liquid liner (my holy grail gel pencil is what I prefer for the water line, anyway).

Thus, I moved onto KVD which I find has the same pigmentation and staying power, without the need to waste/accumulate the pencil liner unnecessarily - I can get more liquid liner for my money, which is what I'm looking for when purchasing this product to begin with. That doesn't mean this isn't a bad liner, though, and if they sold the liquid component on its own I'd probably even switch back!

Inexpensive and amazing! Gives me a perfect wing while also letting me line my waterlines with a built in sharpener! They have a brown and maroon color as well as black and I bought them online in the 3 pack for only $12 once!!! It doesn’t smudge and stays in place, plus it’s vegan and cruelty free. My go to for SURE. tarte Tarteist™ Double Take Eyeliner

I really love how it's two eyeliners in one! The liquid liner glides on so smoothly and easily it's literally one of the easiest liquid eyeliners to apply that I've ever used.

Only problem is overtime the liquid tip gets stray hairs that fray, I usually pick out with tweezers. And the pencil sidd doesn't seem to stay on my waterline too well. Worth it for the money though!

This is the DARKEST eyeliner i have ever used, the precision tip is so helpful and so sharp, it gets the job done every time. then  you have the pencil side which is perfect for getting into the waterlines. Compared to the Kat Von D Dagger Tattoo Liner hers isnt as full coverage and isn't as black. I highly recommend this and would definitely buy this again!!

This is my favorite eyeliner! I never applied cat eye/winged liner so EASILY and PERFECTLY until I found this liner and an accompanying demonstration video. Really makes my blue eyes pop! I just purchased my second one of these because I noticed it was becoming more difficult to apply after I had used it up. It lasted me probably 6-8 good months

I love the liquid liner on this, the applicator makes it super easy to make a wing and it stays put all day. I really wish I could purchase a full size of the liquid liner alone because I don’t like the pencil side. It smudges and smears and it’s just disappointing. I hate to pay full price to use only use one side. Overall, I wouldn’t recommend.

I got this in a Sephora selfie favorites kit and only use the liquid end, with that I love it! It’s so smooth and rich, goes on really easy and quick. I would maybe like a smaller pen overall for more control as I’m use to the wand kind that’s much shorter than pencils/sticks. Either way it’s a great eyeliner and stays put all day

100% hands down the best eyeliner I’ve ever used. It is so convenient how it has liquid & pencil. My only complaint is that it runs out very quickly, I guess because it has to have room for both types of liner in the pencil. But both liners are long lasting & great looking.

I’ve been using eyeliner in general for 17 years and this is absolutely the BEST eyeliner I’ve ever experienced. I love how this eyeliner is deep black and doesn’t go sheer after hours of a long day! It really does stay on fleek, very convenient, and it’s easy to use 💕

I really like the liquid eyeliner part of it because it is long lasting and it doesn’t smudged when ever I accidentally rub my eye lol. But I do recommend to buying this product and testing it because it is a really good product over all.

Some "twist-up" eyeliners are too clumpy on my eyes, does this smooth on evenly?
