Water Resistant

2 color choices

The Koji Dolly Wink eyeliner is created by Taubasa Masuwaka, a famous Japanese model. The eyeliner is available in two colors, dark brown and deep black. This liquid eyeliner is versatile enough to draw a super thin line in the style of tightlining or a super thick eyeliner line.

It features a quick drying formula and its water resistant. This eyeliner can easily be removed with warm water. This eyeliner works great with lash extensions, which so many of us are wearing these days. It's harder to apply eyeliner when you have extensions, but this liner easily draws a precise line above the edge of the lashes.

​We love this eyeliner because it's black is blacker than black and its available for a super affordable price point! It also good for oily lids, it doesnt smudge off and lasts all day long. It's our #1 pick for the Best Japanese Eyeliner!

Water Resistant

2 color choices

We've featured Kiss Me before for their awesome mascara and they are on our list again as the best runner up for the best Japanese mascara. This brand is available in Japan at the local drugstores. Its super smudge proof and stay on all day.

The brush tip can draw an ultrafine line, measuring just 0.1mm. This liquid eyeliner is quite user friendly. Shake before using and simply apply to your lashline. It's all ready to go, you don't have to dip it back into the tube to get more ink as you are applying. 

Its a bit opaque with the first ink swipe so you'll probably want at least two layers to get your desired look. You don't have to worry about those awful raccoon like smudges under your eyes, this eyeliner lasts through all weather: snow or heat, you're all set!

K-Palette's eyeliner is called the one day tattoo because of its super waterproof and long lasting formula. Even though it has staying power, it comes off pretty easily with warm water. For the super crazy party girls, it'll last you 24 hours!

This is a liquid eyeliner featuring a ultra fine tip. It'll even last through a swimming session! It's super user-friendly and you don't need to be an expert makeup artist or guru to master your stroke with this pen. 

Just one swipe with this eyeliner and you're all set! You can easily draw a super thin line for a natural look, or a thicker, bolder line for a much more dramatic look.

This eyeliner glides onto your skin effortlessly and its so easy to draw the winged look with this pen. There is a ball inside the ink which you only need to shake when the ink is running low. ​This eyeliner gives you a semi-matte finish.

This eyeliner is waterproof and the brush doesn't tug at your eyes during application. It dries quickly and the cap is quite secure so you don't have to worry about the ink spilling and ruining your purse!​

Love the packaging on Toogoo's waterproof eyeliner! Its also got great pigmentation and dries quickly.  It's perfect for a gift and this eyeliner is long lasting, lasting you all day long. Also, this eyeliner is insanely cheap!

This eyeliner is in the dipping style. You have to unscrew the brush from the container and did it into the inkwell to re-ink your brush. It comes in three super cute designs although you aren't able to select which design you like, its just a random selection that will be sent to you.

For a super cute eyeliner that will grab everyone's attention, grab this waterproof liner from Toogoo!​

Waterproof

5 color choices

Koji Dolly Wink is featured again for a second time on this list, this time with their pencil eyeliner. Their pencil eyeliner is waterproof although it washes off easily with warm water. The tip of the pencil is soft so that it doesn't damage the skin around your eyes

You can also use this pencil liner on your waterline and it'll last all day without smudging. This is a big deal as most other eyeliners do not last at all on the waterline. It's also super great for contact lense wearers. Even if you need to use eye drops throughout the day it'll still last!

Also this eyeliner is available in three different shades of pink and blue in their special Harajuku collection!

 Miracle Romance - Sailor Moon Eyeliner

I'm a sucker for packaging and for Sailor Moon so this is a slam dunk product for me! I absolutely love the cute little crown that you affix to the top of the eyeliner. There are three designs: the pink moon, spiral heart and moon stick - all with eyeliner in black.

This eyeliner is actually produced in China although the Sailor Moon brand is indeed Japanese. You can use this eyeliner even if you have sensitive eyes. This eyeliner is not waterproof but it stays put pretty well throughout the day without smudging.

The liner is a hair brush type and the formula is a bit watery. I would recommend giving the pen a shake before applying the eyeliner. This is the perfect liner for a die-hard Sailor Moon fan!

Next up we have Mote's FlowFushi eyeliner which comes in an octagonal shape which is perfect for drawing a cat eye. It's user friendly for the beginner and its super fine so you can easily draw a super natural look. 

This brush is super smooth and its extremely precise. I love that the packaging comes in a plastic bag, I've never seen that for an eyeliner before. This eyeliner was a huge hit when it first premiered in Japan's drugstores.

The brush features four different types of hair to create a super smooth feel when drawing the eyeliner on the eye. The eyeliner has great pigmentation and its long lasting. Its super easy to draw, super precise and doesn't irritate your skin!
