It’s impossible to test and review every single beauty product on the market, so that’s why we’re just highlighting the good stuff. You know, those lotions and potions with which we’re currently obsessed, and the beauty counter bits we believe are worth the buy. This week, we’re raving about an easy-to-use eyeliner that just won’t quit.
One of the first lessons I learned after starting to wear makeup was to always, always, always take it off before bed. And that’s all fine and good most of the week, but, well, sometimes the Herculean effort of locating and applying makeup remover after a night out is just not in the cards, and it’s always a pleasant surprise to wake up to a perfect cat eye so that I can at least pretend I got up early to reapply. This is where Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner comes in. It’s pretty much magical in that the felt tip makes it super easy to apply, while the “waterproof” part means that once it is on, it’ll stay on. Seriously — I’ve only tried the black version so far because I’m concerned I’ll forget about it and walk into work with sparkly purple lids. I’m all for experimentation, though!
At $20 a pop, it’s not quite a drugstore buy, but I think it’s worth it to shell out the extra bucks for some insurance against mid-day raccoon eyes. Happy lining!
