There is nothing more annoying than stepping into the office bathroom midday and seeing that your makeup has completely left the building. Since this is a common struggle, we often rely on setting sprays and primers to keep makeup looking fresh. But there are days we just don't have the time or the patience for that extra step, so we turn to long-wear products that promise to stay put throughout the day.

When it comes to eyeshadow, a long-wearing liquid is a one-step alternative to using eyeshadow primer and powder. Liquid eyeshadows swipe on easily and last all day — and they come in a variety of finishes for every skin type and preference, from matte and satin to metallic and duochrome. 

Lucky for you, we’ve tried just about every formula on the market. Read on for the eight best liquid eyeshadows we swear by.
